Ostrich Politics

The United States has the largest foreign debt in history. Our leaders have put a mortgage on our future and garnishment on our souls. They continue to act as if we were still a first rate industrial nation of unlimited wealth. The only reason we still exert influence is our military power.
Our politicians believe the country "can have its cake and eat it". Our citizenry doesn't want to look at the lower standard of living that profligate spending and borrowing will cause preferring to spend time with their feckless leaders promoting parochial causes. Paraphrasing Egar Lee Masters they diddle with self pleasing notions while reality roars in the pines.
