You know, this is what I mean when I say that the American Political System is pure theatrical productions.
Forget about corruption of intent, and self-serving aggrandizement. Look at what this says about the mentality of those people who have been sold to
us as "public servants" and "leaders" of the community. This "suggestion" is a clear indicator of the culture our political parties embrace.
Theater, marketing, and a complete disregard for the dignity of the electorate, whom they apparent consider (and have often referred to) as "Joe and
Mary six-pack." They have reduced the remaining 99% of the citizenry of the country to the status of spectators of their "play."
And before you start cheering me on, the Unions and other 'groups' are far from innocent of this practice. As high-minded and ideal as the raison
d'etre of Unions ever was, it has now devolved into a strikingly similar pit of political machinations and many MANY times, is just as big a "tool"
as the MSM is, picking and choosing the most expediently accessible 'star' to spotlight. In the middle of this are the people who bought into the
ideals; some of whom refuse to acknowledge that the problem is as big there as it is in government.
Our problems with these people is that we seem to accept... or even want them to be "celebrities" that we can worship... even though that has
nothing to do with doing their job. The politicians and institutional leaders we choose to cheer and support don't seem to mind much. Celebrity
status is a great way to ensure prosperity for your kids.
But in the end what they actually do for the people is put on a show, while out of public view they use their authority to elevate themselves and
guarantee their future comfort.
I suppose that if this were some fantasy world where the leaders we choose for our cities, counties, states, unions, and other institution were
actually as good as we were told they are, we would be living in a much more humane and reasonable world... but somehow they never are, and have
predefined mile-long lists of excuses as to why they can't ever seem to live up to any standards of commitment to the people.
Most use the excuse of 'having to compromise' for their failures.... yet most times they don't even try to compromise, they just do what others
tell them to.... like "let's do one of those 'false flag' things...." The only thing missing from that suggestion was the word "again."
