Politicians love us -- or if they don't, they at least fake it until they make it. I suppose this means young people are gaining ground. But where no one was watching, young people had even bigger wins this year -- as candidates.
The world's most watched elections occur in America. The world's most boring election occurred in Germany, characterized by debate over such critical issues as meat-free days in government cafeterias. As expected, Chancellor Angela Merkel was effectively reelected.
At every turn, the far-left stupidly undermines its political goals simply because it doesn't understand the realities of American politics. If perchance I'm wrong, and they do get it, they spend way too much energy trying to reinvent the wheel rather than, you know, winning.
When Kenya rages, it's a little different. The last time Kenyans went to the polls in 2007, the results were disputed and ethnically aligned gangs took the lives of more than 1,100 people during weeks of violent unrest.
Many citizens believe that they could do a better job in government than our elected officials, if only they had the chance to serve. Running for office, however, is an enormously complicated, confusing, and expensive endeavor.
