Forget the country, just get the votes.

Based upon the ongoing conversation in Washington, the focus is now on securing votes.  While the discussion still revolves around addressing our nation’s problems, it quickly becomes clear that saving America will have to take a backseat to getting re-elected.  The behavior which average Americans most despise has taken center stage:  devisive politics.  The President spoke in El Paso, Texas about immigration policy but quickly devolved into a discussion of division, racism, and ridicule.  Does the President not know that alligators won’t survive in the Rio Grande because the Texans will make them into boots?  The sudden resurection of the Dream Act in the Senate further illustrates the renewed focus of our leadershipto secure the vote of a select group.  Meanwhile, Senate Democrats are berating a select group of oil executives for having the audacity to generate a profit for their stockholders, again to appeal to a select group.  It is interesting that days after an election, the victors will call for unity within our nation.  We will be asked to come together as Americans to “win the future”.  While that may make for a nice fuzzy moment, it is but a precursor to the divide and conquer strategy which will precede the next election.  How many ways can you split America to get a vote?  We are about to find out.
