I've been thinking (and now I need a lie down). Without waffling:
One of the most fabulous things I've always admired about the United States of America is the ability for anyone born there to be its head of state, regardless of their background, their creed, colour, gender et al.
Sadly, this appears to be wrong. The penny's just dropped. I've realised that if one wants to be the President of the USA, one either needs to be incredibly rich or have rich friends. If anything's wrong with America, it's that. But can it be fixed, dear reader?
