Governing. The loss of Hope and Trust in our Legal System, Financial Institutions, our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

It's a terrible time....the worst in our History internally because we should know better by now having already gone through a Civil War and a World War plus other "engagements" which ended in sorrow and recrimination like Vietnam.

I agree with this article posted here, which perhaps resulted in your more optimistic post as counter? :shrug:

What about the worst year in the last 100? 1963 and 1968 were bad, as were all the late years of the Vietnam War. The difference was that there was hope in all those years, and at least the illusion that, despite everything, the United States was still a democracy with a government that believed that public policy could improve the lives of its citizens. The year 2004 saw the second crooked Presidential election in a row, with the degree - tens of thousands of recorded incidents - and systematic nature - by computers which intentionally lack evidence which could be used to judge the fairness of the voting - of the fraud unprecedented in American, and probably world, history. But that's not the worst part. The worst part is that it has become fashionable, even amongst those who call themselves liberals, not to complain, and even to belittle those people who are concerned by calling them conspiracy theorists. If it wasn't for the yeoman work of John Conyers, this whole sordid incident would have been swept under the rug <...> The Republicans are now so expert in perpetrating this kind of massive fraud, and there is so little opposition to it <...>
