continuing on my simple-n-sweet mantra político

Briefly continuing on my naked truths posting, below follows another'un:

Any individual who is able to raise [enough money] to be considered presidential is not going to be much use to the people at large. He will represent … whatever moneyed entities are paying for him. … Hence, the sense of despair throughout the land as incomes fall, businesses fail and there is no redress.

–Gore Vidal from his book The Decline and Fall of the American Empire.
