Voting in this country only gives the illusion of any sort of control over or participation in the system. One need not be a conspiracy nut or extremist to realize this by now. Only one who observes, reasons, and holds accountable.
There is no good candidate, no change, no hope, no chance to turn things around. Only the gradual waning of a once great country's day in the sun. Another country sunk by the ever more brazen corruption of its bureaucrats and elected officials.
Or is this simply the perspective everyone gains as they get older?
