"As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."
------H. L. Mencken, 1920
The fact that Trump had any chance at all of getting elected is an indictment of the education system and the process of education in this country.
We clearly need to rethink and overhaul BOTH the political system and process and the educational system and process.
If we don't, democracy in this country is doomed....
