Question A Maddening Political Race To The Finish Line

8-10-2022

(Once Again)

“They (Coming Elections) are probably not even close!” But with another election day creeping ever nearer, the sweat is really beginning to drip from the soggy brows of those who value position and power, even over life itself - just as long as the life that is in question here – is yours alone? (by - hrt/8/10/2022)

“So, whatever happened to those good old days, a time when those who hungered for public office, did so with but a single purpose in mind – public service and not self-service!”
The problem is that a few of today’s ‘office hungry cretins’ are so damned voracious for power, wealth, accolades and even public worship, that they have truly lost sight of the prime mandate of government –“Service to ‘We the People’ of These United States of America!”

Remember – “A person’s political affiliations alone, does not necessarily determine their competency to occupy any public office!” (hrt/8/10/2022)

“NATIONAL HONOR IS NATIONAL PROPERTY OF THE HIGHEST VALUE!”
James Monroe (1758–1831), Fifth President of the United States of America..

Wink Quotes by Terry Pratchett

Re: https://www.goodreads.com/author/quo...atchett?page=8

This response may be of interest to some:

“All right," said Susan. "I'm not stupid. You're saying humans need... fantasies to make life bearable."

REALLY? AS IF IT WAS SOME KIND OF PINK PILL? NO. HUMANS NEED FANTASY TO BE HUMAN. TO BE THE PLACE WHERE THE FALLING ANGEL MEETS THE RISING APE.

"Tooth fairies? Hogfathers? Little—"

YES. AS PRACTICE. YOU HAVE TO START OUT LEARNING TO BELIEVE THE LITTLE LIES.

"So we can believe the big ones?"

YES. JUSTICE. MERCY. DUTY. THAT SORT OF THING.

"They're not the same at all!"

YOU THINK SO? THEN TAKE THE UNIVERSE AND GRIND IT DOWN TO THE FINEST POWDER AND SIEVE IT THROUGH THE FINEST SIEVE AND THEN SHOW ME ONE ATOM OF JUSTICE, ONE MOLECULE OF MERCY. AND YET—Death waved a hand. AND YET YOU ACT AS IF THERE IS SOME IDEAL ORDER IN THE WORLD, AS IF THERE IS SOME...SOME RIGHTNESS IN THE UNIVERSE BY WHICH IT MAY BE JUDGED.

"Yes, but people have got to believe that, or what's the point—"

MY POINT EXACTLY.”
― Terry Pratchett, Hogfather
