Am I alone in thinking that elections in America have descended to an obscene and grotesque level where the questionable power and influence of the mighty dollar far outweighs any sense of reason, let alone democracy?The amount of money spent by both parties on this election campaign could have removed the debt of several third world countries, eradicated several killer diseases, lifted entire nations out of poverty - in short it could have done endless amount of good.But no, the Americans prefer to squander such wealth on advertising and promotion so their man and their party can have its four years of power.Such is not Democracy, such is Obscenity.
No you're not alone JRB. I initially intended to write a post about the election but realised that would be a waste of time, unless I just posted the finances of both candidates. Nothing else matters in US elections.It is obscene.
LOL. Biden speaks the truth.- Aangirfan
It's perfect Aangirfan. :)
Blissful ignorance indeed.I recall a colleague beaming when the head of department said of him that he could always be relied on to fill a much needed gap.
Some folk never see beyond their own importance, do they Hamish. :)
I can forgive Joe Biden's slip of the tongue (I've done it many times myself when I'm thinking of something else, but thankfully obscurity means never being recorded), however I can't forgive him copying a Kinnockio speech.
Brian, I was trying to keep in a positive mood then viewed your link...
