Ain’t it grand when the country’s two political parties, the Donkey and the Heffalump, select their candidates. The country gets all twitter-pated with anticipation, regardless of the candidate. What a great system (puke, puke)!
If you want to have fun (cough, cough), read the political analysis about the candidates. Seems the parties select the person who has the best chance at defeating the other guys’ candidate. Who knew??! Who cares if that candidate is worth a pile of shit in a perfume factory. “We’ll win with Herkimer (our bunny rabbit when I was a kid). Shasta (the neighbor’s guinea pig) has no chance now!”
I played golf with an older couple a few months ago (yes children, there are people older than dear-old-Dad). The wife was just a ride-along, as her husband played with us. She seemed to be a nice, quiet, reserved Grandma…until we started talking about politics. “I’ve been a Republican all my life. I know that Trump is a Facist, but I’ll never vote Democrat!” I asked her if she wanted to abstain from voting for President…and use her non-vote as a statement to protest terrible selection options. “Oh no, I can’t do that.” I wondered, out loud, what would happen if more people didn’t vote for either, focusing instead on using their vote for local and state contests. “I don’t care about the local stuff. I just want a Republican in the White House…any Republican.” I guess that explains all the local taxes I pay for the digging and filling I see around my ‘hood. I won’t mention the Mello-Roos for the high school down the street…where my kids never went.
Is our vote a privilege or a right? It’s a constitutional right, but a privilege paid for by those who have sacrificed to keep that right safe and secure. So many stupid people vote based on what they see, not on what they read or hear. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve heard women say, “He’s a good looking man. He gets my vote.” If that’s the key determinate, then Clinton wouldn’t get “Pig of the Year” at the State Fair. I gotta admit, if some rocket-hot chick ran for Prez, I would certainly watch her…initially. Remember the ding-bat from Alaska. She wasn’t too bad, especially compared to the friggin’ douche pump McCain. Alas, she got ugly when she opened her mouth. Bummer.
Time to face the facts, Ignorant People. The number ONE job of any politician, once elected, is to get RE-ELECTED! Republican or Democrat. Man or Troll. That crap they tell us in the campaign means Jack and Shit…and Jack left town. Wise up and use your noggin. I know it’s hard…especially for the Wal-Mart crowd (don’t worry, that sale on ammo will still be going on next month). Don’t tie yourself to some BS arguments about: Liberal vs Conservative; Large Government vs Less Taxes; Right to Choose vs Right to Life. Politicians are all the same: Money and Power. How about this mantra: “When they don’t deliver on their campaign promises, vote them OUT! Next in line.”
Remember: Government for the People, by the People. They work for US! Use your right to vote as a tool, not as some number in a database (or a hanging chad). When the Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution, they never dreamed of “professional” politicians. Serving the people was something you did to represent your constituency…for a few years. Then you went back to your business. It was never meant to be a career choice.
People, the inmates are running the asylum and they ain’t real bright. They’re puppets on a string; and Geppetto is the Party Leadership. We’re smarter than that…even you goofs who stand in line for the latest iPhone. Think for yourself and take over the strings…and turn Pinocchio into a boy. How’s that for an analogy!
