Not "the" answer

1. The freshman congressional class of 1994 shows that term limits are not ‘the’ answer. Would you run a small business by ensuring constant turnover? Come on, quit looking for easy answers.

2. Ross Perot, Jesse Ventura, and Ralph Nader demonstrate that third parties are not ‘the’ answer. Look at those three, each a self-absorbed clown with hints of paranoia and who were without persistence or, indeed, an interest in performing government. The only successful, persistent, interested ‘independent’ at the national level is Bernie Sanders, who ‘really’ is a Democrat with an unusual campaign strategy. (And I suspect that, if former Minnesota senator Dean Barkley were to be a ‘real’ senator for six or more years, he too would become a de facto Democrat.) Quit looking for a savior; instead join the metaphorical union.
