The Presidential Campaign Is An Industry That Consumes Your Time For Little Return

The ongoing Presidential campaign is an industry that consumes your time for little or no return, and ebbs your life energy with relentless stupidity. It’s a processed pre-fabricated product.

( Above is picture of facility similar to one where the campaign may well be produced.)

The campaign is about jobs for consultants and staff, finding material for 24 hour news channels, and winning over the 5% of all voters who are both undecided and living in a swing state.

Nothing of relevance is going be discussed in an honest fashion. Mr. Obama, who I support, and Mr. McCain, who I do not support, are going to gear every word to a narrow segment of the electorate.

And the campaign goes on and on and on. It steals your time. It informs you of nothing you did not already grasp.

The outcome does matter. It’s important who wins. But the process is a mess. Unless you are volunteering or donating on behalf of Mr. Obama, you’d do well to stay away from it all as much as possible.

  1. Not to mention it is bad for your mental health. McCain is making my head explode on a daily basis right now.
