If you read nothing else this weekend,  please read  this stem-winder  of a piece by Robert M. Gates,  who served as Secretary of Defense under both George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

He delineates precisely why so many citizens are angry at the government, then gives a one-paragraph tutorial on how our system of government was designed to work,  and follows up with the qualities needed for a presidency which serves the nation instead of one political party or set of beliefs.

It’s far too late for His Oneness to profit by this valuable lesson,  but we the voters can and should,  so that we may cast our ballots for people with the common sense and constitutional understanding to obey their oaths of office.

Gates may be out of the government,  but he still provides valuable service to the country.
