I couldn’t believe my ears when watching network news recently. Here was Secretary of State John Kerry in Egypt telling Egyptian politicians to set aside their differences and work together for the good of the Egyptian economy. This, when our own politicians can’t get together to work for and prevent sequestration, which will deal a hard blow to our economy.
I’m afraid that America’s role as a world leader and beacon of democracy is rapidly coming to an end, just like the Roman and Greek empires. How can any nation look to us when we cannot manage our own? The fault falls squarely on the shoulders of our members of Congress.
Look at their disproportionate pensions and healthcare benefits that are better than the majority of Americans. This sad reality could lead to a dictatorship as it did in Rome and Athens. Who knows? It might be better than what we have today.
