The real rulers

Vote for whoever you want.

Why the government you vote for is never the government you get and government itself is the source of the problem.

Stacey Herbert quotes: Michael Glennon

GLENNON: The ultimate problem is the pervasive political ignorance on the part of the American people. And indifference to the threat that is emerging from these concealed institutions. That is where the energy for reform has to come from: the American people. Not from government. Government is very much the problem here. The people have to take the bull by the horns. And thatís a very difficult thing to do, because the ignorance is in many ways rational. There is very little profit to be had in learning about, and being active about, problems that you canít affect, policies that you canít change.
