now that things are headed in the "general"

direction - seeing the gigantic over sized flags - and multiples of them draped and surrounding the two candidates - make me want to run away in the other direction - as fast has my bad knees will let me.

they remind me of all the photos i saw of hitler, the other fascist dictators, and china's chairman mao tse tung back in the day.

the "set" and "stage" designers should be fired. that look does not belong on a democratic stage and frankly, it does not garner more votes or favor to the candidates.

it literally makes my skin crawl.

1. So if....

Bernie were the Dem nominee, and he had all those flags drape around him, that would have been okay?

2. i have not seen him do this up to now.

there may be situations in the future - such as the dnc convention where this type of staging may be used and i do not think he would have a say about that if he speaks.

this seems to be a new trend and i find it over the top and in poor taste for a democracy.

same goes for the recent 1/2 time shows during football season and the patriotic celebrations in d.c. at the lincoln memorial.

being democratic and patriotic is not gauged by bigger and more flags on the stage. too much hubris means this to me: false front.
