Apparently, Mega doesn't have the snap to realize that you have to be...as Charles Krauthammer observed...ILLUSIONED before you can be disillusioned.
Being disillusioned is no bad thing. It means you are dealing with reality.
What has Mega's panties in a bunch? Those awful, horrid GOP voters in Utah, for one.
Just this weekend, for instance, longtime Utah Senator Bob Bennett dropped his re-election bid after delegates at his state convention decided he was not “pure enough” despite a solid conservative voting record. This extremist shift is happening all over the country, and I can’t help think about the toll it is taking on the next generation of voters. For the first time in my life, I find myself disillusioned with the political process—something I always swore would never happen to me. And I am not ashamed to admit that this small feeling of disillusionment is scaring me. Because if this is how I feel from all of the rancor, I can only imagine how disconnected the rest of my generation must feel. If politicians aren’t inspiring people when they are young, what hope is there that they will care when they are older?Golly, gee weelikers...!!! Whatever will happen if young people are not "inspired" by their political leaders?!?!?
Hmmm... Maybe they will be imbued with a healthy skepticism of power. Maybe they will not be deluded when people pretend to want to "help them" by taking their money and freedom. That would be a GOOD thing. Maybe they will be inspired by their own capacity to work for their good, and that of others.
