American politics has moved beyound a parody of populism, downshifting to pass any antiparty paradigm, to then parallel park in a republic that has chosen to punish all, “we the people” democracy.”

To further traffic in analogies;

Last night’s State Of The Union address was, to “one person, one vote”, what a Rolex is to a Timex. Both will tell the time, but most likely, in different worlds.

But the true tick tock is Mr. Trump is just a tool, to fool some of the people all of the time, and cower as many people as he can as often as possible. Politically punishing the demos.

Think for a minute.

Capitalist markets are made, measured, or broken, by an aggregate of individual choices. Right? The wisdom of the crowd.

Think for two minutes. Add this up.

1 We the people.
2 One person, one vote.
3 The wisdom of the crowd.

1+2=3. Right! Or Left?

But forever, there have been forces, economic forces, who see any political equation, that sums by way of utilizing the wisdom of the crowd, as an anathema to collective economic freedom, and individual liberty.

How could this dichotomy be?. You tell me.


I’m spry yet retired. I reside in the inner city of a major metropolitan area of the United States. I read politics. I watch baseball. I hum along with the tune. I June swoon, and moon the bad poem. Post here, are old and new. Opinions are my very own, except when wrong.
