Absolute power rarely knows how to self-correct when it overplays its hand with the public. That is the situation today in Florida, where an immoveable GOP state legislature handed over the keys to government to dominant insiders and special interests and now is thrashing around in turmoil.
The stalement between radical conservatives and even more radical conservatives in Florida fulfills no mandate from voters. It is a government pushed off the rails by the overconfidence of special interest puppeteers.
The state legislature is, today, in the grip of crony capitalism. How we transformed from an aspiring democracy to a shadow government run by insiders didn’t happen all at once.
