“We [have] to struggle with…business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagonism, sectionalism, war profiteering…who consider the Government of the United States as a mere appendage to their own affairs…Government by organized money is just as dangerous as Government by organized mob.”
― Franklin D. Roosevelt
“The major problem—one of the major problems, for there are several—one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them. To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.”
― Douglas Adam
“Elections belong to the people. It’s their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters.”
― Abraham Lincoln
Now that the 2016 primaries are over and the national conventions are about to start, it appears either Clinton or Trump – both who serve and are serviced by organized money – will be our next President.
Will it be Twiddle Dee or Twiddle Dumb?
Neither should be allowed the job.
But the people have decided to forsake those candidates in both parties that argued a more reasonable, middle-of-the-road, progressive approach to government.
Now, we’re gonna take it in the behind, again.
Will someone please pass me the Preparation H?
