Truth serum needed

As usual, polarization created by our two-party system has made it intense leading up to the election. I know elections have consequences, but wow, since the last election it's been worse than ever for the losing team. Could this be because the White House threw out civility and bipartisanship and instead promoted divisiveness and one-party rule since day one? And, it's become almost painful and agonizing to watch as the incumbent attempts to campaign his way out of his failed record and bad economy. George and his manners left some time back. Outlandish claims are made out of hand and repetitive lies have become truth for throngs of rabid followers and party hacks. And, now after three and one half years of campaigning, golfing and passing out goodies his Excellency has a huge following of Occupy the Sidewalk, Street, Park, School, Border, and Union Voters. It's reached the point where a smile with a body behind it is cheered by masses of pie-eyed followers just for nearly completing a sentence and hate speech is the rule.
