Anyone else feeling like the fix is in?
Maybe it's me, but last night's convention/sideshow convinced me that this whole process of electing a president is nothing but a sham, something for the rubes to chatter about while the real action is going on in an entirely different tent.
I know this isn't an original thought by any stretch, but the R convention really drove it home. It just seems like the decision about who is going to sit in the oval office has already been made. But to continue the illusion of democracy, they've got all three rings going full tilt.
To tell the truth, I didn't even watch the whole pathetic spectacle, just heard snippets of the speeches on the radio and then skimmed over the reactions today. The whole deal seems hollow at the center (sorry for the vagueness, but it's hard to explain). It's like watching one of the Olympic events after the announcer told you who won the gold. Of course, it's actually much worse, because whoever is "elected," we know the outcome won't be good.
Anyways, I was just wondering if anyone else is getting a sense of this being a done deal. Your reply choices are below:
