Insanity has been defined, jokingly, perhaps, by Albert Einstein as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
Are we all insane? Then why do we keep voting for the same politicians and expecting them to fix our mounting deficit, stop kowtowing to special interests, or increase taxes on the people most able to make a difference toward our national debt?
Doesn’t anyone notice that the politicians who are most corrupt are the ones buying millions of dollars worth of ad time? Why is anyone still paying attention to those ads, and using them as a basis for making their decisions?
Are we really that gullible, or just insane?
Anyway, I believe in miracles. I believe that people really do want to help this country get out of its slump. And I believe, that before the November 6th 2012 election, people will learn how to exercise their write-in voting power, and will elect a new president: one who isn’t backed by special interests, but rather has the whole country’s best interest at heart.
Let’s start in New Hampshire. Come on, NH: be my hero! Choose anybody else, maybe even Buddy Roemer, will ya? I’m not endorsing Buddy. I just want to see you guys mix it up! Better yet, write in some of the folks who are posted on Writeindependent.org. They actually have some great ideas! Some of which are possibly better and more creative than Buddy’s ideas.
