Society is indeed a contract...it becomes a partnership not only between those who are living, but between those who are living, those who are dead, and those who are to be born.
Edmund Burke Reflections on the Revolution in France
And this member of this society in this time thinks we are wasting the gift given us by those who came before and scuandering the inheritance of those who are next to come.

I agree with this completely. And the really funny part is that you and I feel the same way, yet disagree on how to fix it. That, IMO, is what makes the US great. I am happy to know people who disagree with me and who mount intelligent reasoned debates about their points. We might never agree, but the fact that we share the same overall goals is the underpinning of the concept of the loyal opposition.
