The Illusion of Freedom, Continued

When does a person who has one of the highest government security clearances which prevents that person from speaking freely about government secrets without repercussions have the right to lecture us on the freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution?

According to the singer Madonna, a Black Muslim in the White House does.

Welcome to the topsy-turvy world in which I live, where citizens are being asked to accept hypocrisies as their only valid choices.

On the one hand, we can keep the incumbent, which allows us to pretend that we’re a free country.

On the other hand, we can oust the incumbent, and admit that there are few freedoms available to the majority of American followers of pop culture figures.

Or, as one writer suggests, we can, if we choose to vote at all, cast our ballot at Gary Johnson.

Oh well, enough fun playing the person who cares about political issues — it’s about to make me insane with boredom.
