No, this not some sick joke that should be saved for April Fool’s Day. The drumbeat of psychotic media chatter, robo-calls and junk mail is nearing its climax. The one phrase that really grates on my nerves is the nightly refrain from all media outlets: “our democracy.” Never was, never will be. Is it anything we would actually want if we could have it? Not likely.
My friend Paul Edwards penned a gem on the subject. Hope you enjoy his handling of the subject and writing style. As a “non-writer,” I appreciate his skill and passion for the written word.
If one if looking for a (political) way out of this mess, voting is irrelevant. May I humbly recommend not voting, not registering, and not believing in politics as a solution to anything meaningful. All ballot choices are, well, in a word: insane. I didn’t used to think this way, but am tired of embarrassing myself. I’d rather “clap for Tinkerbell” than go through the political nightmare I experienced in 2016 again. From the ashes new growth is possible.
