WHO DO YOU LOVE?
Authority in 2016 has an image problem
With Reagan as paterfamilias,we could believe his avuncular style
Carter was no peanut farmer-but it helped his "common man"image
Now a tax audited "billionaire"desires the highest office in the land
Well and good-we all have votes.We all have opinions.Access to social media.
Much will happen between now and November.Core of our dilemma is this-
that we still need one person to be our parental figure.We know we are fragile.
Most of us never wish to hold office.So we delegate-and find comfort
in someone who reflects our core beliefs.Anger at others who do not.
Our problem is the tyranny of minorities-one percent rich can buy office
while the poor beg for dollars.It does not always work-Bush had bucks
but no demographic.Cruz had a demographic but not enough bucks.
Bernie has both but mass media has omitted his existence.
We will not run for Presidencies-yet wish to have our wishes honored
In the words of J R Ryan"I wish to run FROM office"
Our problem remains-SOMEONE still wishes this most dubious of delegations
Once you hand your power to another/one finds it gone /faster than Diebold!
