As The Veneer Of Democracy Starts To Fade...

I'm in the midst of a crisis: I have writer's block.

I just can't seem to write anything of interest or substance. I'm frozen in time. Lethargic. Apathetic. Life surrounds me yet I cannot find the words.

Meanwhile, the presidential race is on and about a week or so ago, I found the most curious thing happening in American Media: the reporting of the SuperDelegates and their ability to vote for whichever Democrat Candidate they desire - regardless of what the people want.

But I haven't seen anything on the news about it since. As though those reports were just to plant the idea in the peoples' minds that "it could happen." To me, this forebodes the future when Barack Obama has won the majority of the Democratic vote and Hillary Clinton receives the nomination through the SuperDelegates.

Someday maybe our people will realize that our vote is just a pacifier.

Listening to Mark Stewart + Mafia does seem to mirror the times. The busier you are, the less you see...
