Every silly season has its buzzword. The one for this cycle is change. If I hear one more candidate say they are for change, I think I'll... well nothing - I don't really listen to them anyway.
But I'd like to know what they want to change: The U.S., despite the best(?) efforts of some 500 or so economically illiterate legislators (more if you count statehouses)has the most powerful economy on the planet - they want to change that? We have more freedom than any other country - is this what they want to change? Our military has more combat power than the next dozen or so armies combined and whether you like it or not, it makes all of us safer by giving every tin pot dictator second thoughts - does that need changing? We live in a country where race and religion and place of birth are no impediment to getting fabulously wealthy - is that what they want to change? We have no ruling class, or caste, or hereditary peerage and all you need is the cash, and you are in with the elite (unlike every other nation where you must be born into status) - surely that must change right?
So when you see all the slack-jawed mouth breathers hanging on the utterances of the "fighting for change" candidate, know you are seeing the future - and a bleak and desolate future is what it will be changed into if they get their way.
