Drivin' That Train, High on....

Anyone ever see that movie “Runaway Train”? That’s America. We’re the passengers. The engineer is absolutely nuts (echoes of the Grateful Dead's "Casey Jones"—"Drivin' that train, high on cocaine").

There doesn’t seem to be any way to get from the passenger coaches to the engine. There are air brakes, but nobody seems willing to pull the switch. The train crew, in fact, has set up guards so nobody can get to the switches.

I remember Bill Clinton saying “Is this the greatest country or what?” Yeah, Bill, just like the Germany republic was going to last 1,000 years. There are more parallels to Nazi Germany than we like to list.

How do we either stop the train or get off it?
