Plain folks and Mencken

My sister sent me the following a short time ago.

I wonder how someone in the early 1900s had the foresight to predict the following. H.L. Mencken, German/American Journalist, wrote this quote for the Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920, in an article entitled “Bayard vs Lionheart.”

He was a writer on topics of liberty in the first part of the 20th century.

Here goes – “On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

Is this our future?

Do we want to be the plain folks?

Wake up and listen, do not let a few dictate you and your family’s future. Listen and vote. It’s our voice, please do not take the chance and lose it because we are willing to leave it up to someone else.

Study the issues and vote.
