God Help Us (in the Ballot Box)

February 10, 2016

A neo-Nativist got the most Republican votes in New Hampshire.  A self-proclaimed revolutionary got the most Democratic votes, and neither has declared their plan for how they intend to make good on all their promises.  Even given this, no third party has been given the barest of mentions in any outlet of the media.  This bodes well.

I’ll be honest.  I would vote for Bernie Sanders, but I would prefer he give us any idea how he plans to fund his plans first.  The U. S. federal budget doesn’t support “free everything for the public” things unless you alienate many people who are a major part of its deliberative faculty (namely, Congress and its financiers), if it can be done effectively, and that means alienating a large group of people who are required to sign off on such changes to how the federal government spends its- that is, OUR– money.  I don’t see that happening even if there is a President Sanders in the White House because Congress and the courts are bought.  They’ll never go for that kind of shift unless it aggrandizes the executive branch, like the last big socialist president along these lines: F. D. R.  His cumulative affect on American government wasn’t exactly good or nearly as much a turnaround from bad economics as people are led to think.

As for Trump, the less said the better.  He’s a Wall Street bastard in spirit if not in fact, and he’s a bigoted, sexist moron.  If he’s president we’ll end up at war with Canada–and Canada would be right to win.

Hillary Clinton?  Please.  Being a woman doesn’t make anyone more or less qualified to be president, but specifically, she is a reprehensible choice for it.  She has no experience remarkable enough to warrant her even running for president that isn’t a horrible sign as an executive officer of the federal government.  She is an accomplished two-face in a gallery of notable liars.  She serves a single term as a Senator, then couldn’t even manage the Department of State without letting Americans die because she failed to protect them.  Who knows that and wants her to be the chief executive of the entire government?  Find them and tell them to turn their brain switch to the “on” position.

Maybe Sanders is the only way to get Congress to work for us for a change, by virtue of his extreme shift in policy would demand some kind of happy medium if Senators and Representatives actually do anything to cooperate with the popular will.  As I don’t expect that to happen, I wish him the best of luck.  Honestly, I expect him to be shot dead like J. F. K. before he actually changes the system to serve the people instead of money.  Also, I hope Trump slips on his bad hair and bites off his own tongue walking to give his next speech so he stops talking and we don’t continue to lose brain cells.

Are these really the best, viable options we have as an electorate of hundreds of millions?
