What's Wrong With Politics in America

  1. Nobody takes ideas seriously.  Principles?  What are those?  A coherent world view?  Why would we need that?
  2. The people that want to be in politics and who are successful have the intellect of infants.
  3. Neither party is right enough about to make it substantially better than the other party.
  4. We are constrained to a two party system instead of having mechanisms for small parties to have a chance to grow and have influence over time.
  5. The average voter is a moron.
  6. Most media coverage is moronic. 
But who am I kidding?  It's all going to work out and be great despite the above.  I'm just a peasant anyway and I shouldn't worry my little head about anything above my pay grade.  Carry on!
