It can happen anywhere, anytime. Political demagogues take full advantage. Obama/Biden/Romney/Ryan represent the worst of what's coming. It's already happening.

Pre-election theater camouflages it. It runs cover for dirty politics. It works as planned. Most people are fooled. It repeats each electoral cycle. Broken promises follow all important ones made.

Rhetoric and policies are worlds apart. Wealth and power priorities trample on popular needs. The worst is yet to come. It's baked in the cake. Austerity is agreed on. Bipartisan schemes plan more of the same.

Huge social benefit cuts are coming. Mandated entitlements workers paid for will erode faster than ever. America's needy will end up on their own out of luck. Let-em-eat-cake governance doesn't give a damn. Non-believers will discover gulag hell firsthand.

Obama/Biden/Romney/Ryan are two sides of the same coin. Voters get to choose between death by hanging or firing squad.

You'd never know it from post-debate commentaries. A New York Times editorial headlined "A Debate With Clarity and Fervor."

It was "one of the best," said The Times. Perhaps its editors were watching Three Stooges reruns instead of demagogic blather.

"".real differences on public policy (were) discussed with fervor, anger, laughter and real substance."
