Choices, choices, choosing one in the here and now, without knowing their past. A GREAT WAY TO CHOOSE A CANDIDATE!!! YEP! That is how Obama was chosen, without knowing his past! Impulsive, and emotionally reflexive voters is aa great way to put a despot in the highest office. Despots always have a great following; call it charisma. Americans spend more time in keeping tabs on football scores and athlete performance than they do on the most important subject before us, one that affects every aspect of our lives. Passive enthusiasm is epidemic and the norm. Imagine the outcome. We will deserve the government we get! The Pied Piper should be delighted.
