PJ O’Rourke, that paragon of wit and good hearted political pessimism which makes for some of the most interesting small government people, weighs in on the current presidential race. Surprise, he’s not feeling too good about things.
(From The Crux)
If he or she gets elected, which candidate would have what financial effect on you?
I can answer that question in three sentences: If any of the candidates who are most likely to be elected get elected,you’re screwed. However, there are also some candidates who would keep you from being screwed if they got elected. But they aren’t going to get elected, so you’re screwed.
Who are these jacklegs, highbinders, wire-pullers, mountebanks, swellheads, buncombe spigots, boodle artists, four-flushers and animated spittoons offering themselves as worthy of America’s highest office?
Do they take us voters for fools? Of course they do. But are they also deluded? Are they also insane? Are they receiving radio broadcasts on their teeth fillings telling them they’d be good presidents?
ACC is a completely non-partisan organization. We do not support/endorse or oppose any candidate for office. We believe that both major parties are heavily influenced by special interests and will report on crony capitalism wherever and whenever we see it.
