MEANWHILE, BACK AT THE TITANIC... | 2004-10-30
Fifteen elections in my lifetime and what has changed? Can anyone besides a leftist or a respectable conservative name ONE THING that our government has done to better our lot as a people?
Think of the millions of hours of work spent by everyday Americans on these campaigns, the billions of dollars spent. And for what? More of the above.
To rearrange the deck chairs while the ship goes down. And to "appeal to voters" who might be insulted if you say anything bad about deck chairs or silly political platforms.
Once again people will work and vote for Bush because he is "better than the alternative." In other words, his deck chair arrangement is cuter.
If a fraction of the time and effort spent by well-meaning Americans on these presidential campaigns was directed at the soft underbelly of our enemies in the universities, the public schools, the Chamber of Commerce, the liberal churches, etc., the effects wouldn't show up right away, but they would make an enormous difference in the future.
The Political Professionals will keep doing what they do. We can continue to act like trained seals, or get down to work.
