Who am I?

To the Editor:

Who am I? I’m a chameleon. A magician. A mirage.

Who am I? I’m the end of public education; the end of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. I’m the privatization of all things public if there’s a nickel to be made. I’m a parasite, a siphon, a sponge.

Who am I?  I’m voter suppression, voter intimidation and obstruction. I’m voter confusion. I’m a buyer of elections. A gamer of democracy. A panderer. A cynic. A schmooze.

Who am I? I’m an outsourcer. A sorcerer. A shill. An opportunist, a manipulator, a divider, a dabbler, a flim-flam man. I’m pro-life. I’m pro-choice. I’m the mirror image of whomever I address.

Who am I? I’m Georgie-Porgie and the Pied-Piper. I’m a poser, a plunderer and a wanna-be G.I. Joe.

Who am I really? Imagine me:  smug, fawning, blustering, sabre-rattling with my finger on the button.

Really? Vote.

Mike Bailey, Sr.
