We often talk about political problems in this country. I have done a lot of trouble shooting. Some of it on large complex electronic systems. This mess is so complex that I have no idea where someone or some entity could start the trouble shooting process. Clearly it should start with the voters but we are the ones who have screwed it up. I don’t see any chance that it will be fixed by any of our current leaders. I don’t know if any of them could fix it if they wished to do so. We argue about politics with irrational sound bites and continue to get farther apart politically. Any rational discussion is ignored or shouted down. We express our uninformed opinions as though they were facts. An emperor, with unlimited power, might be able to fix it. Who would be happy then? It is pretty discouraging.
