A sharply divided American people have once again voted for another four years of partisanship, brinkmanship and gridlock. On one side they had a not-so-closet socialist who says he only want to redistribute wealth from the rich to the poor, yet history has shown that in socialist societies the middle class are the ones most affected by those policies.
The other choice was a very wealthy person who has about as much in common with and concern for the middle class as a Bengal tiger has for my Maine Coon cat. But now that I think about it four more years of partisanship, brinkmanship and gridlock might not be so bad. Just think what could have happened to the middle class if either one of those had free rein to put into action their political agendas.
