Thus the problem lies more deeply in the fact that the American public thinks they even have a Menu in their “democracy”… The problem is that after eating the shit with shards of glass for so long, one can clearly be made to think that it tastes like chicken.”

CONTROL … So Yes yes vote tactically, and THEN …
