Divided We Fall

Finally the end is in facebook feed will be free for another 4 years from the biggest media con job ever: turning the American public from a patriotic nation with a high respect for the office of president into a polarised, divided country lapping up the low brow entertainment provided by a cynical media circus.  Yes people, conflict sells media and media sells advertising.  Or more to the point: they sell you.

Praying that the US will get in behind whoever they elect, look to build strong cross-party consensus, leave behind the insidious hate campaigns they perpetrate against those brave enough to offer themselves for the presidency (who should surely be honoured for this sacrifice?), dismantle the special interest funding that contaminates US politics, find ways to affirm the sanctity of life in the womb and on the battlefields of the world, stop using the poor as ideological pawns and help them until they can help themselves...
