Stop family feud kind of squabbling

The twists and turns of politics of the 21st century is as predictable as knowing where the wind blows. It appears to me that a huge form of family feud is emerging as we get closer to the November elections. On the one hand, we have a father figure in the GOP party trying to “maintain the course.” On the other hand, we have a mother and son dispute on how to bring some stability back into the family. The big question is, does the greater population want a “father, mother or son” to take over the highest office in the U.S.?

I am convinced that the there is only one race, the human race, at stake. All three candidates are missing some very big issues. One is how to meld into the reality that other major countries have grown into being a economic positive force on the world market. The U.S. is not the world power it was once, nor does it need to be. Our candidates need to help the population see a positive way to market all the blessings we do have. We can still defend, and justly so. Will one of the family members step up and get past the pettiness they pick on?
