Election 2010 Pep Talk

Elections are funny things. No matter how bad all the candidates may be, someone always wins. –Congressman Alan Grayson

Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other. –Oscar Ameringer
Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote. –George G. Nathan

Money cannot buy our votes, not yet. But if we are not careful, well-funded lies and distortions may trick us into serving only the interests of power and money with our votes. I don’t know about you, but I never like being conned. –LLF

You can’t ignore politics, no matter how much you’d like to. –Molly Ivins

About l. l. frederick

I'm pretty ordinary, so I find any number of things in the world interesting, among them: books, music, flowers, food, social justice, politics and (sometimes!) people. As for my writing, I've decided that I can be subtle and tasteful when our only problems are esthetic ones. Or when I'm dead, whichever comes first. In the meantime, read at your own risk.
