Nigel Farage, a member of the European Parliament from South England, launched into a bit of a rant the other day.
Any chance the Farage rant has application to what's happening in the U.S. as well?
Has our own federal government become too powerful and so inefficient that it now pushes people and political parties toward political extremes? Perhaps a scaling back of the federal government (and its economic meddling), with return of more autonomy to the states, would help reverse America's widening political divide.
Differences are often easier to work out when done in smaller steps, covering fewer people.
