Another Election Looms, so It Bears Repeating:

The Demopublicans and the Republicrats are the
Lizards. You are the People. Vote for the Lizard of
Your Choice. Nothing Will Change.

With thanks to Douglas Adams for the brilliant satire that follows:

“‘On its world, the people are people. The leaders are lizards. The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people.’

‘Odd,’ said Arthur, ‘I thought you said it was a democracy.’

‘I did,’ said Ford. ‘It is.’

‘So,’ said Arthur, hoping he wasn’t sounding ridiculously obtuse, ‘why don’t the people get rid of the lizards?’

‘It honestly doesn’t occur to them.’ said Ford.

‘They’ve all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they’ve voted in more or less approximates the government they want.’

‘You mean they actually vote for the lizards?’

‘Oh yes,’ said Ford with a shrug, ‘of course.’

‘But,’ said Arthur, going for the big one again, ‘why?’

‘Because if they didn’t vote for a lizard,’ said Ford, ‘the wrong lizard might get in.’”

— Douglas Adams “So Long and Thanks for all the Fish”

(Our thanks again to Douglas Adams for this brilliant piece of satire, but also our apologies to actual lizards, which are not responsible in any way for the political machinations referred to herein.
