Description

In which John explores why he is not (yet) interested in the so-called Presidential Race, and discusses the U.S.'s campaign length in the context of other democracies. Side note that I couldn't fit into the video: The media is heavily invested in longer campaigns, because those campaigns buy ads on cable news (and on YouTube). I'll discuss that in another video. But for now, rest safe in the knowledge that I will not mention Donald Trump (or any other Presidential candidate in the 2016 Presidential election) until, like, 2016.
