I’m sure I’m not the only person over in the US that feels this way but I can’t wait for the 2016 election to be over. I’m so sick of hearing about Donald Trump! I watched most of the Republican and Democrat debates until my son was born. It’s amazing once Conor was born I just didn’t bother. Not because he kept me so busy. He was asleep during the Democrats town hall and asleep for most of the last Republican debate. I just didn’t have the desire to sit through that shit again.
I like Bernie Sanders but I can’t listen to him any more either. He sticks to his core issue which I understand. The massive gulf in wealth and equality is actually likely the lynch pin for majority of big domestic based issues. Inequality is helping to feed the military industrial complex, it’s keeping generations of families poor…anyways…I was about to rant myself about it, which I have done in previous posts but I won’t. I’m just making the point. I agree whole heartedly with Bernie BUT I don’t want to hear that same message again and again at this stage. The election circus starts waaaaaayyy too early!
I have decided. I will vote for Bernie in the primary here. If he doesn’t get the nomination which looks very likely, I’m just not going to vote this time around. I’ve voted in three US Presidential elections. I’ve actually voted Republican, Democrat and Libertarian! When I voted libertarian it wasn’t because I shared their believes. I sure as hell don’t! I don’t think everyone should be free to do whatever the hell they want. I believe a sizable minority of people are fucking idiots…dangerous idiots that need guidelines and shouldn’t be given free reign. I voted libertarian because I believed in their goal of getting at least 5% of the votes to try to get closer to presenting a viable third choice in the future.
This time around even if it’s Clinton vs Trump. I won’t vote. I won’t vote to prevent Trump becoming President even though I do believe he’d tear the hole out of the United States and possibly the world.
Change has to happen…I believe Bernie would start the very, very long road to boosting the quality of life for Americans. He won’t be able to accomplish everything he has set out, particularly if people don’t get behind him after he’s elected to help straighten out the rest of the assholes in Washington. As he has stated, he won’t be able to get anything done if he doesn’t have the support of the people once elected.
I believe Trump would give even more power to big business and worse still, do everything he can for himself and his interests and nothing for the average citizen. He may even cause massive global unrest. What if the rest of the world finally has it with the US swinging our dick around in everyones face? What if efforts are ramped up to either move to a standard digital currency or a new shared currency between some of the larger developed countries without the US? What if that becomes the new standard for global trade?…we’re in a very precarious position. We don’t have the policies and programs in place to absorb that happening. The value of the dollar would plummet….but hey, maybe it’s time for this empire to fall.
