We are Americans
Yesterday in this space I suggested that the Democrats could easily recapture the Presidency by irresponsibly bribing us. Since we are us I'm not so sure it's a bad idea, like, "let's walk across town and have a drink!" The drink might not be good for us, but surely the walk is. And then what if the drink really is good for us after all! Opinions vary on this second point. And who wouldn't be happy with a 50 to 100 percent success rate?
Here's the thing:
Republicans think they're smarter than everyone so they try to trick everyone into doing whatever nasty things they want.
Democrats think they're smarter than everyone but feel bad about it so try to reason everyone into doing what they think is best.
But I think in America, in the end we all just want to be tricked into doing the right thing.
