As one could imagine the uptake of political ads is unprecedented in the final days leading up to the election. One thing I can take away from the constant barrage is that there is a theme that crosses party lines. Every single one of the potential office holders vows to cut "wasteful spending." It's apparently a universal enemy of every candidate as they are all completely opposed to it. With such agreement and commitment to abolish this evil foe, one might think that "wasteful spending" couldn't possibly survive against such odds.
I'm thinking it can't be as easy as the politicians proposed. Perhaps it's joined forces with the "war on poverty" which also has eternal life. Or maybe it's in collusion with "debt reduction" which also has a history of longevity. In any case it's a battle of evil foes that seem to possess some sort of super power that enables it to deflect the best weapons of politicians, thereby allowing those causes to live in eternity. One might come to think those evil doers are similar to kryptonite's effect on Superman.
Or wasteful spending could be subject to interpretation.
