It is Our Fault

Kentucky – Recently a young man told me “I think to fix America we need to blow up Washington D.C and kill everybody in the government.” This idea is as disgusting as it is wrong.

Washington D.C is not what is wrong with America; America is what is wrong with America. Obama cannot sign a bill unless the Senate passes it, the senate cannot hold office unless the people elect it. The judges in the Supreme Court cannot sit unless the president appoints them; the president cannot hold office unless the people elect him.
The blame does not fall on the capitol, the blame falls on us. It is our fault. We cannot say that we are blameless if the nation is collapsing, it is not because the people at the top, it takes the people at the bottom to rot out a core.
