The End of Politics

The End of Politics.

It is with some reluctance that I write words that we do not want to hear: our democracy is dead, and the two major political parties work for economic forces that they cannot control. Criticizing the Democrats for forsaking their constituents is now a waste of time, and the Republicans march virtually in lock-step behind a leadership which we do not see. Our trips to place our ballots, voting for effective political representation, is something like a ceremony begging the rain-gods to bring us rain. Upon the clouds promising rain are the faces of our politicians, drawn by our imaginations, working from materials provided us by the political presentation industry.
