The charade of American elections
A recent U.S. election was a masterpiece of buncombe and a charade in which far too many Americans participated. Long gone are the days when we heard such stirring political rhetoric as “We hold these truths to be self evident…” or “Four score and seven years ago…” Instead, today the mob howls its mindless assent to “Change” and”Hope” and troops off dutifully to the polling pen to register their brands on the voting machine. No matter which of the front men for entrenched special interests won, the country lost.
The United States, once haven for the likes of Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine and H.L. Mencken, has deteriorated to a mobocracy and the empire is exhibiting advanced signs of dementia.
There are only a few left of this pamphlet, it having been distributed to the American Amateur Press Association and to friends in late November 2008.
