In the good, old days (just yesterday) of the Republic,
the one percent of one percent called the shots from
outside of government through donations and lobbyists
and often they won.
Now, they are the elected and nominated and appointed
government and the American people are the victims of
the art of the con.
As questionable as those good, old days were, in time,
we will look longingly and lovingly to them while wishing
the other candidate had won because right now only
the one percent of one percent are having any fun.
