Oh that's refreshing... thanks
I find there's a certain topology to the landscape of cynicism -- like the globe, go far enough in one direction and you'll eventually get back to
places you've been before.
I agree -- I expect no radical 'change', from a new crop of 'representatives', and that can be depressing. But, stripped of false expectations of
political promises, the hopes and dreams of the public are just that -- hopes and dreams. And, that they stand alone without
actualization gives them a realism that can be inspiring, as they are uniquely human. So, as a game and even a venue for shared hope, elections can
be fun. If you're cynical enough.
