Glenn Beck's Common Sense (II)

Politicians, I have a message for you: Americans do not care about the R or D (Republicano o Demócrata) after your name; in fact, those letters probably hurt you. We care about your character. Americans don't want someone with whom they always agree, but someone they can always trust. We want to be a part of a process that is open, transparent and fair -but., most of all, we just want you to do what you promised you would. We'll call you with our thoughts when we can, but if you keep your end of the bargain, then you'll have nothing to worry about. We'll always be there to watch your back.

Let us be the radical thinkers of our day and remember the commonsense warnings that George Washington gave us in his farewell speech:

The common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it. It serves always to distract the public councls and enfeeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms; kimdles the animosity of one part against another; foments occasionally riot and insurrection... A fire not to be quenched, it demands a uniform vigilance to prevent its bursting into a flame, lest, insterad of warming, it should consume.

Qué razón tiene y qué bien aplica a la situación política española.
