  •  Politics is the key by which we operate Democracy (1+ / 0-)

    To hate politics while professing to love Democracy shows either that the speaker has accepted the lowest most corrupt most perverted form of politics as the only form it can take or not really understanding the foundations of Democracy.

    But he does not like the "politics".  He likes stadiums and wonking.  

    That whole thing about persuading the people to support his policies (vs his candidacy) and getting them engaged in the process of governing, is not part of what he considers essential.

    Thing is, unless that part of the system is reawoken, all other progress is temporary and transitory, subject to repeal and defunding with the next election.  

    We'd rather dream the American Dream than fight to live it or to give it to our kids. What a shame. What an awful, awful shame.
