Americans, as a group, appear to suffer from extreme ADHD. We run back and forth between political parties, swinging the country left and right, left and right, never allowing one party or the other enough time to solve the complex problems our world presents. We want quick fixes and easy answers to problems that cannot be resolved with a Tweet. Look at this chart
The nation is set to swing back to a party that, for the 8 years preceding 2008, managed to run up enourmous debt, get us into two unwinnable wars and divide the nation into haves and have-nots the likes of which we haven't seen since the 1890s. And yet, in our ADHD frenzy, because Obama and the Democrats weren't able to solve these nearly insoluble problems in 2 years, we're on the verge of handing the wheel back to the party that trashed the nation in the first place. WTF???
