Just about everyone I know, of any political persuasion, agrees that American campaigns are truly the theatre of the absurd. They are crazy, and inane, beyond belief.
What we haven’t figured out is whether politics is in such a state because the whole process needs reform, the people attracted to politics are more criminal than not, we the public are not paying attention, the world itself is in a very absurd, contradictory state, or some combination.
Personally, I lean towards the need to reform the whole process, the whole way we elect folks and pass laws.
But that is another subject!
