Divided Leadership: While I understand the need for a two party (or more) system, there is a fundamental flaw that comes along with such a system when it comes to advancing policies. Businesses are ultimately bound together by one common goal even when their leadership is divided -- the bottom line. In the government, there is no shared vision. Even within a given party, leaders at the highest levels can have divergent interests. This makes it nearly impossible to enact meaningful change. Until our leaders on both sides of the aisle determine that reform is needed and that it is going to take sacrifice both in revenue and entitlements, nothing will move forward the way it needs to.

The Lesson: No common goals combined with no common vision equal no meaningful progress.
