BENEATH THE SPIN ERIC L. WATTREE, SR.
A NEW NORM HAS BEEN SET IN THIS COUNTRY . . .
A NORM THAT SAYS THE AVERAGE CITIZEN DOESN'T COUNT
During the Reagan administration the American people made the mistake of becoming more enamored with an individual than they were the laws of this land. As a result, America failed to act decisively to curb Reagan's criminal behavior in office. Now, over twenty-five years later, that failure has come back to haunt us. America now finds itself on the brink of disaster and badly in need of a moral compass, but what we're left with is a status quo that was set with criminal intent, and a new norm that says the average citizen is unimportant. The ultimate irony of this is, the primary architect of America's downward spiral is now revered as a hero.
