Political Aesthetics

I am completely intrigued by the process of modern politics: Look good, promise everything, say nothing, and attack the opponent.

I don’t often share what I think, but here is a cartoon summing up a few thoughts regarding the Romney/Obama debate.

I have friends on both sides of the “color” divide (I’m not talking race). They regard “their” candidate with religious fervor, holding them up as the savior of the people. But ultimately, the only difference between “the candidates” is the color of their tie. The results will be the same until we the people realize that change does not come from an elected politician or an official political party. It comes from the convictions of individuals, exercised for the benefit of those around them, in order to create a more humane and beneficial society for all.
