panem et circenses
"bread and circuses" is an ancient Latin phrase utilized to help depict the tactics of ancient Rome's political persuasion by pacification & entertainment to the general populace. In light of the upcoming election, I'm nauseated by the way candidates say "whatever it takes" to get to the noble position of head of state/government! Forgive my cynicism, but i regret the fact that i can't believe "the good i would" from any participant in this election and still feel it my moral obligation to cast my meager vote.
