“Americans don’t have time to worry about dissecting the presidential candidate’s platform much less the platforms of the gubernatorial candidates, judges, county auditors or city council members . . .

(A book Irene encourages you to read) In Andre Harper’s book Political Emancipation, a book he wrote about his “personal political odyssey and experiences leading to his departure from the Democratic party and led to his political emancipation followed by his emergence as an independent thinker;” he writes,

“Americans don’t have time to worry about dissecting the presidential candidate’s platform much less the platforms of the gubernatorial candidates, judges, county auditors or city council members.  If you are for change, education, fairness and are against crime, then that’s all people seem to care about.  Americans would much rather spend their free thought space worrying about who entertainers are sleeping with, the hottest songs, and who the net big celebrities are and planning how they are going to live once they become famous.  All the while, Americans are being constantly bombarded with messages that tell us what to wear and when these garments are no longer acceptable.  The messages tell us how to act.  The messages tell us what to buy.  The messages keep us forced on ourselves and not to worry or be concerned with what may be going on around us.”
