Societal-narcotic-induced euphoria

As I watch CNN - the sizzling excitement, the mass hysteria, the months and billions of dollars spent in the election campaign, the words and phrases repeated and repeated in the debates (taxes, jobs, Middle Class...) and the words and phrase that are deliberated buried (environment, climate change, global warming, animal abuse, national debt, fiat currency, quantitative easing, bank runs, dollar crash, hyperinflation, economic collapse, depression, world reserve currency...), where the minor differences between the contenders touch not their colossal common unworkability - I shake my head in resignation. All this misdirected vital energy drained down a nation-wide non-sequitur. The result doesn't matter, no more than a change of guards, or not, on the same rotting and already rotten ship, which will sink in the next fiscal storm. The whole charade is like a shot of narcotics into society to raise it to a year-long euphoria over nothing. And when it comes back down tomorrow, it will be the same inescapable deteriorating reality.
