I think perhaps both liberals and conservatives have capacity for human decency. Our greatest political failing is that we don't translate our normal love and compassion for others into our political rhetoric. I generally agree with the concept of hobbled government...the filibuster, for example, is a feature, not a bug. Perhaps another problem is our limited binary choice of liberal and conservative...your point that taxes and bureaucracy can't cure the human condition is almost Reaganesque!

I do a lot of things. Some of them I even do well. But what I really want to do is share ideas. Check brianewish.com or https://www.linkedin.com/in/brianwish/
