Neither of them offers a vision for a sustainable society.
- Neither can address the perpetual increase of the national debt. Seven years into an economic recovery, the debt should be growing more slowly than the economy...but it's growth exceeds the economy's. The political establishment has no clue about how it will deliver its fiscal promises. It's made up of short-term opportunists and partisan hacks.
- Neither will address greenhouse gas emissions.
- Neither will mitigate the growing social-economic stratification of American society -- which will create even greater political dysfunction and crime.
