i am reminded of the final scene it robert redford's movie The Candidate. he won the election and all the campaign consultants were gone within hours. he, the elected winner, didn't have a clue as to what to do next.
'we' got what we wanted. hope something useful comes of it.
again i say, if both parties are against deficits, why do we still have deficits? if both are against poverty, why do we still have poverty? yada yada.
