Is time running out for the US? Any honest person knows that a house paralyzed by dysfunction and division cannot endure, right?

Update:

We must be the only so called large major representative of the people style country that literally cannot agree on what the of the week it is, or that saving the life of citizens is an honorable and worthwhile agenda.

    Now that we've removed Trump, reduced his GQP to minority status and are in the process of jailing hundreds, if not thousands, of Trump's violent criminal supporters, we are no longer paralyzed by dysfunction and division.  The healing is well underway thanks to Joe Biden and Democratic Congressional leaders.

    We can all agree that saving the lives of citizens is an honorable and worthwhile agenda.  The means to saving of those lives is the problem.  Seems no doctor can agree on the correct way to get this done.  The USA is experiencing an all out of attempt to change the Constitution and it is this document along with Almighty God that sustains the USA.  It just takes one man like Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam that runs a Chicago newspaper that pushes racial reparation for black people to stir up people to rioting, looting, burning, destroying and even killing.  Islam's Allah has different laws compared to Christianity's Jesus.

    I've heard stuff like that my whole life. However, I'm concerned about the fiscal irresponsibility that piles up debt. Everyone knows this is untenable ... no one knows where the tipping point is. The US should have enacted a provisional balanced budget amendment long ago (when it was that way during the Clinton admin). It's not too late to reverse the direction w/ a balanced budget. Plenty of tools at the disposal of politicians.

    Both gwb and trump gave the money (tax giveaways) America uses to pay it's bills away (largely to the elite) w/o compensation to pay for the lost revenue and the deficit/debt skyrocketed.

    Obama slashed 2/3 off the then record $1.4T gwb deficit and strove to balance the budget but the rep obstruction included shattering the filibuster record.

    Trump added $7T to the debt but his tax liability went way down especially by what he championed and got w/ the estate tax reform.
