Midway through their journey to Election Day, Americans found themselves in a dark wood. The media called it the first debate. There are other words for it, but this is a family website so I’ll just point out that the viewers of that “debate” weren’t enlightened, they were deceived, they weren’t led out of the darkness, they were led deeper into it.
Mitt Romney, who as we all know is the third greatest political genius of all time, right behind King Louis XVI and Pharaoh Phukitallup I, is now busy fine-tuning his message for the home-stretch run to Election Day. I don’t know what he’ll proclaim to the electorate in these final days, but I know what the message would be if the truth mattered . . .
I Am the Way Into the City of Woe
I Am the Way Into Eternal Pain
I Am the Way To Go Among the Lost
Those words, engraved on the archway above the Gates of Hell in Dante’s Inferno, precede the final words, Abandon All Hope, Ye Who Enter Here. If Romney wins, Americans can abandon all hope, because this country will keep descending from one level of Hell to the next, until we reach the last and deepest level.
Dante had the poet Virgil to guide him through Hell and lead him out.
Who do we have? Two corporate candidates and the corporate media. That’s who we have.
