The answer, my friends, is no.

People can vote for "change" but they won't actually get it and then they'll be all mad and promise not to vote again and then they'll go ten years without giving a crap and then someone will market change at them and they'll go what the hell and then they'll vote for change and what they'll get is some version of change they didn't want and then they won't vote anymore and then, the next thing you know, someone is elected a Bush or a Clinton for the eighth time.

We are well and truly fucked but we forgot how it happened and that means we'll just get fucked again.
