Imagine the unimaginable — the president and vice president are both dead, gunned down by unknown assassins. Do you know who the president is?

This week’s Republican presidential debates supplied plenty of evidence that the GOP candidates are still pandering to the extreme right-wing factions in their party. For women and people of color, for students and seniors, for middle class Americans of all stripes, the 15 Republican candidates offered little reason to be enthusiastic.

Why is our political system so shortsighted? On so many issues, from global warming to fiscal responsibility, our government seems focused on short-term benefits, while it ignores long-term consequences. Our infrastructure is falling apart, our schools are underfunded, and all the while special interests make out like bandits. Why?

Ten years ago, my family and I visited Charleston, South Carolina for the first time and found it to be one of the friendliest cities. It all started when we arrived at our hotel, where we received a warm welcome from the doorman, Charles. The next day, when we were out, exploring the city, we encountered a woman who gave us a palmetto rose and recommended that we visit the battery, located at the southern tip of the city, facing Fort Sumter. We followed her recommendation and got to see a spectacular view of the waterfront.
