 Difference in such a system is reduced to catchy,
emotional sound bites, which serve to polarize viewers, spectators and
ultimately, voters, while simulating difference - enacting a facade of
political diversity.

In the end, the winners in such a set-up - that amounts to a
perpetual, media-sparring match for cap feathers among the
self-appointed wealthy and commercial society elected, or 'electable,'
contestants - are the corporations, who infuse enough capital to the
Republi-crat majority to decide the outcomes of political policy
questions. So the corporations (and aristocratic interests) get what
they want, at the expense of the rank and file public, year after
year, ad infinitum.

If you are reading the mainstream newspapers or listening to National
Public Radio, you are contributing to your own mental illness, no
matter how astute you believe yourself to be at “balancing” or
“deciphering” the code.
