Campaign '68

Many see similarities between the 2016 presidential election campaign and one almost half a century earlier. The 1968 presidential campaign was one of the most dramatic and significant contests for the White House in the 20th century. It was a close, bitterly-fought campaign in a raucous, bloody year. Ultimately, the Democratic Party lost its decades-long grip on national power, making way for the rise of Republican conservatism that profoundly reshaped American public policy for the next 40 years.

It makes much more sense to pay attention to behavior and performance and test only when there is a reason. I bet this one change would save quite a bit of money that could be better spent on health care for people like me. That is just one idea. Our government is so mired in policies and practices that are useless and should be abandoned. Listen to the people at the bottom. I am now, at age fifty-two, living at or below the poverty level. I never dreamed it would happen to me. I have two college degrees and cannot get work in my field. I have worked hard and lived with integrity all my life, and it is very hard to see what is happening to us as a country.
