Current Events

October 17, 2004

The current state of politics in the nation is almost depressing. The campaigning has come to the point where many of the attacks are completely political means to evoke some type of emotion in the populace yet lack relevance to real life. The candidates have nearly come to live in a handful of "swing states" trying to say what the voters want them to say. Both sides are playing to what their constituencies want to hear. And as a result, very little progress is actually made.I like what Thomas Friedman of the NY Times had to say about this. As I do, he'd like a president that is willing to say what needs to be said, rather than what people want to hear. Bill Cosby did this a while back to much applause and much criticism. I applauded him for it. This whole idea is basically the antithesis of modern politics, but wouldn't it be nice?

Oh, to be unpopular with one crowd and applauded by the rest. We'd need a prez candidate who wasn't addicted to power or in need of a job. One with nothing to lose. Of course, if they weren't in the 2 big parties, they wouldn't get press and no one would get to hear their brilliance. Dang it all anyway. But it sure would be nice if instead of making promises about what they would give us, they would tell us to get our act together and quit being self-centered.
