Do you contend that American politics is akin to a high school popularity contest with
politicians being elected based upon their likeability, charm, and popularity instead of their stance on the key, important issues that are affecting our country? Do you believe that the American voter will progress beyond this adolescent stage and elect politicians who will really ACT, not BS, to improve this country?

I strongly believe politics nothing more than a high school popularity test. However, the ability of man kind to move beyond 'social politics' (in both instances) remains unknowable. We can only hope society chooses to progress.
