Deep down, American people are filled with goodness. Once they've had all they can stomach of the yuck that now permeates politics, celebrity and news they will stand up and shout, "Enough!" They did it in 1776 and it happened again, pressuring Fox and an allied publisher to cancel the lurid O.J. Simpson "confession" to murder.
Surely no thinking person still believes some "stranger" killed Nicole Simpson and her boyfriend. Even after O.J.'s attorneys staged brilliant courtroom theatrics, much of the nation was dumbfounded at the verdict. If we hadn't been mired in an overzealous and fatal attraction to political correctness, O.J. would surely have been found guilty.
If this nation is addicted to "news" about a schmuck and yet ignorant of what is going on in the political and economic world, it is only because of the constant pablum diet fed to us by the news media. Americans love theatrics. We get really bored by figures and facts. We usually accept anything nicely packaged and requiring little effort on our part. Yes, Americans are good at heart, but a bit lazy.
But not lazy enough to turn thumbs down on politics as usual, as shown by the recent national election.
The Democrats are totally confused regarding their principles and whatever directions they might take. They offered neither plan nor program. They offered only "change". Surely the recent election was not about choosing a better way to govern the nation.
Corruption, immorality, cronyism, graft and public treasury rip-offs were the lingering evils which were rejected by those who voted.
The score for November--The goodness of the American soul -- 2. Corrupt politicians and O.J. Simpson -- 0.
Nichols is dedicated to preserving the "American dream" for his 24 grandchildren through conservative principles.
