Political Signs: Truth in advertisement

A recent post of mine over on the Blog at Mises.org:










Political Signs: Truth in advertisement

Jim Fedako



I spent Saturday bike riding through the mountains of Southwestern PA, enjoying a beautiful spring day. Littered along the roads were political signs promoting candidates for the upcoming May elections.

I found it ironic that those signs are nothing other than an indictment of the democratic process. From what I gather, honesty, integrity, accountability, and common sense are all missing from both government and the current slate of elected officials. Those aren't my words. Those are the words found on just about every sign.

Hmmm. What makes anyone think another election will set things right?p>
