So what was this rumor I heard about a two-party political system in the United States?
Now we have a choice… between the male war-monger and the female war-monger.
It’s been a one-party system for a long time: the Money Party. Government from the corporations, by the corporations, for the corporations. Some day the United States should try democracy. It might catch on.
The people are left out of course. Running the country is too important to let the rabble have a hand in it. Only the moneyed elite have the necessary brib… er, skills to run a country these days.
I have a better idea. Let’s have a lottery every year. The winners get sent off to Washington to carry the brief of their home communities. No independent decision-making. Everything must be discussed at home before it can be decided in the Asylum on the Potomac.
Couldn’t do any worse.
