The audacity of "change"

My first impulse was a constitutional amendment. Getting that done is a long shot so I revised my proposal. Here goes: I am convinced all Americans would derive enormous benefit during political campaigns, if one simple campaign law was enacted.

To wit:

"No candidate running for the office of President of the United States shall use the word 'change' during any public speech, lest he or she wish to forfeit all federal campaign subsidies, free media time and publicly financed security measures."

You think such a law is preposterous? You think we could never get such a law enacted?

Yes we can! Yes we can!
