CAN'T-IDATES

A COUNTRY IS NEVER WITHOUT PROBLEMS.
HOWEVER, A COUNTRY WITHOUT SOLUTIONS FOR ITS PROBLEMS IS IN TROUBLE.

OUR SYSTEM OF SELECTING AND ELECTING A PRESIDENT IS FAILING US.
THE CANDIDATES CAN’T PROPOSE REAL SOLUTIONS TO THE REAL PROBLEMS.
WE WON’T LET THEM.
AND THEY DARE NOT RISK OFFENDING US.

AMERICA’S CANDIDATES HAVE PROGRESSIVELY BECOME ADDICTED TO CASH, PANDERING, LOBBYISTS, POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEES, HANDLERS, POLLS, FOCUS GROUPS, SHORT TERM THINKING, AND A SOUND-BITE MEDIA.
THEY ARE BOXED IN, AND THAT’S WHERE THEY DO THEIR THINKING.
TRYING TO SOLVE THE NATION’S PROBLEMS WOULD BE POLITICAL SUICIDE.
WHAT CANDIDATE WOULD WANT THAT?

American Politics Nursery Rhyme

Humpty Dumpy sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpy had a great fall
All the Kings Horses and all the Kings Men
Said, “Oh Shit”

The best our country has to offer are way to smart to get involved in that circus. We are stuck with the clowns piling out of the clown car. Then we are trapped watching a puppet show for 4 years.

Hence, without risk, there is no reward (solution).

All our problems are self-correcting, but only when the honey bees have died, the ocean level is at your doorstep, and you can no longer afford an iPod Touch. Be patient.

Humpty Dumpty didn't fall; he was pushed!

The democratic ideal is that the best of the field of candidates rises to the top and the electorate(the common man) has the innate wisdom to make the right choice. Now, that would mean that George W was the best that America had to offer... Oh my God! I have lost faith in the democratic process.
