Any American who is prepared to run for president should automatically, by definition, be disqualified from ever doing so.
Apparently, a democracy is a place where numerous elections are held at great cost without issues and with interchangeable candidates.
As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: you liberate a city by destroying it. Words are to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests.
As the age of television progresses the Reagans will be the rule, not the exception. To be perfect for television is all a President has to be these days.
Democracy is supposed to give you the feeling of choice, like Painkiller X and Painkiller Y. But they're both just aspirin.
Fifty percent of people won't vote, and fifty percent don't read newspapers. I hope it's the same fifty percent.
Half of the American people have never read a newspaper. Half never voted for President. One hopes it is the same half.
