Democracy Questioned

We got these questions in '80 and '84. We get them 20-years later.

What scares me about headlines like these and teapot controversies like the CNN a--hole picture post is that I know it's not limited to the media. It permeates the academy and is riddled all through the intelligencia and lives in Hollywood. When elections like these happen as often as it does, there's only one logical conclusion that these people can reach. Democracy doesn't work - or at least when left to flyover Americans it doesn't.

Call me an alarmist, but I think when newspapers and other opinion makers and shapers questions the intelligence of 59,054,087 citizens it's not far off for them to think imposing an E.U.-type superstate bureaucrat-for-life is the way to go. Posted by Hello
