From a LETTER to the EDITOR– MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE
Let’s look at what we have learned from this election:
Twenty-one of 22 incumbent senators were re-elected, and 353 of 373 incumbent members of the House were re-elected.
The American people have re-elected 94 percent of the incumbents who were running for re-election to an institution that has an approval rating of about 9 percent.
This indicates, as an electorate, we are a nation of idiots.
No, that’s not the point.
The point is not about the individuals, it is the system itself. It become a system which prevents greatness from being known and rewarded.
They are the “me-too” mediocrity and they are on both the left and right which has become our new norm.
One must think beyond the box.
