Sadly No   Against the historical panorama of human history, all technological advances reveal themselves to be merely new means of achieving old ends -- the acquisition of goods, the pursuit of one sex by the other, the overcoming of competition, the fighting of wars.  Proclamations of progress are just the vain and traditional boast of each "modern" generation. - - rkr

ralph rasmussen wesley chapel floridaMy Wish...
It is my fondest wish and hope that in the year 2020 the Democrats and Republicans take some time off. 'That there will be no conventions, that no one will be nominated that is a Democrat or a Republican. I can't do it anymore! I don't have the time, I don't have the energy. I don't know what Democrats and Republicans think they are doing but it's more than I can bear.ralph rasmussen wesley chapel florida Every four years I think it can't get any worse, and it does.

My solution: Let's have a dozen monkeys sequentially throw darts at a large wall of names displaying all USA registered voters between the age of 34 and 70 and... The first dart landing will become the new President - the next 100 dart landings make up the US Senate - and the last 435 will fill the House of Representatives.
