Whose Democracy is it? Not ours apparently

Despite Iowa being my state of residence, I’m not a fan of the Iowa Caucuses (or the New Hampshire Primary just to be gratuitous) I do have respect for the people that actually work hard in the process and the voters who care enough to take part.

That is after all what Democracy is supposed to be about at least, right?

Apparently not for the folks that really matter:

Actual voters are mere speed bumps.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
