It is Done, Now Live with It.
It is done, you heard it here first, now live with it. Voters surrendered to apathy. The nominations for President of the United States are done. Finished. Maybe. If you can only imagine how foolish it appeared to the world. For the record, let us, in a civilized manner, agree. It is clear that, —given the choices offered, exhausted, misled, and desperate, with few or no other reasonable or foreseeable options, —voters surrendered to apathy.
The historical event itself (in the predictable crowning of
H.R.M Queen Hillary Clinton) lowered the boom on America. Inexplicably, a ‘great gender victory‘ was somehow deemed more important than the quality of candidates. And here we thought Americans rebelled against royal self-entitled monarchs in 1776. Feel the burn. (No Bernie pun intended.)
Not to complain, you understand, but reported past wrong-doings and the questionable ethics of Hillary , email scandals, curious and unbelievable
rigged vote numbers come to mind. Accusations, truths, half-truths and blatant lies, involvement with the Benghazi affair, preferential media spin, all raised caution flags for the apathetic voter, but what the hell, no matter. She is Teflon Hillary, the ex ‘first lady Clinton’ who was —and remains, —amazingly disliked by the public; so what. Funded by corporate interests for future favours? No comment. Bernie was far more popular with a huge following. The old upstart played well but was tossed. We can all feel warm and fuzzy when Hillary “apologizes” for past big-boo-boos with corporate crocodile tears…and pretend the ‘historical gender event’ makes up for any shortcomings. Cheer quickly, before you think about it.
What, Oh, No! Not her too, you Say?
Subsequently, with a collective sigh, voters surrendered to apathy. Foolishness and a sell-out of democracy comes to mind; yes, it is done, now live with it, nightmare or not. Because the Democrat National
Three-Ringed Circus Convention, in spite of all issues exposed, believe it or not, approved Hillary Clinton as the official nominee to be elected as the President of the United States. Why? Worth repeating, why? Questions must be asked. Was it solely because of her gender? Was it to ‘make history, to show how “gender-equalized-socially-advanced” the DNC has become? How about because nobody cares? A perfect example, once more, of ‘voters surrendered to apathy’…and as if that was not enough…
Republican Voters Surrendered to Apathy and Voted for Upstart Donald, the brash, unpredictable...Republican Candidate
The controversial ‘Donald’, the one-and-only big ‘Mr.Trump-
full of himself‘, a billionaire businessman outfitted with a trendy retro orange toupee- is now the “official problematic and unpredictable Presidential nominee” for Republicans. Are those folks just plain lucky that Donald , the Republican Fixer of all Things ‘arose to make America Great again? —or are they doomed? Believe it or Not. Smack your head on an oaken desk, eat ice cream fast and get brain freeze, Virginia and Joey-Billie-Bob, you deserve it, he‘s it.
The Big Problem
Whereas the brash, bragging, ever-unpredictable, clearly insulting, unabashedly racist candidate is
only reportedly unethical and reportedly dishonest, he is also, according to royal opponent Hillary, reportedly unstable. Yes, worth repeating, reportedly unstable—and clearly misspoken, with bad judgement.
In spite of all critics, ‘The Donald’ amazingly managed to out-run, out-wit (if that’s possible for someone ballasted down by ‘big’ thinking
down there) and out-blather the ever–ultra-righteous whining Ted Cruz. As if on an X-box mission to destroy, Trump forced out more than a dozen other unfortunate candidates. Quite a messy process, we observe… Whereas most White House-bound dreaming opponents quit while ahead only yelping and bleeding, with tails between their legs, Ted left in denial of a basket-ball sized concussion and a damaged ego requiring a sabbatical from all things political for fifteen, oh, maybe twenty minutes.
And the Winners are…NOT the Voters
Most noteworthy, the 2016 nomination races became reality shows. Survivor 2016: The Worst Nominee of the Communication-Challenged. “You’re Fired” being shouted from behind tall walls paid for by Mexicans proved to be more popular than Big Brother or Sesame Street:You’re Fired Too, Bert & Ernie, Hillary insists…, eyes rolling, to keep up with the Trumpettes. Viewers became unstable, brash, outspoken and cranky. Predictably, the winners are…not the voters.
Let the Games Begin
The Amazing Corporate Race, where a gender-selected winner may also suffer from hot flashes while counting corporate donations, sipping coconut water in luxury; do tell. Blatantly
gushy Clintonesque comes to mind. Billy and Monica played in the oval office, too That image is burned into the exhausted , non-functional brains of Prozac -numbed voters. Subsequently, after enduring another fewer than 100 days of political hell all across America, voters and zombies alike will undoubtedly be rendered completely catatonic, but let the games begin.
Why do you have to ask? A suffocating cacophony of Trump Trash Talk, Clintonesque gush stuffed with lies and hollow political promises, flung thickly from the back of Donald and Hillary Happy Hour bus tours is about to engulf the wold. As the tide turns…hold your nose. Edgy new unknowns like Evan McMullen will collect in flocks to swear in on the action, vowing to toss Trump. The pile of hapless cannon fodder will continue to grow…
Unbelievable, isn’t it?
In summary, it IS unbelievable, is it not? To date, these are the chosen future ‘leaders’ of America. Exhausted, apathetic, and uninformed voters somehow
yield to their fate and admire them. If the opportunity presents itself, left standing or not with the new regime, they will also blindly cheer, follow, and, sadly, emulate both of them. Not a pretty picture…
One way or the other, will America be ‘made great again —by either of these two? Not likely.
With that in mind, headache or not, it is done. Live with it. Decide for yourself. Even better, consider the fate of others. Think for yourself; ponder the future of your country. Consider the big picture. Contemplate the world. The future of mankind. Apply brain-power. Repeat as necessary. Start now.
….and wait…and wait… and wait….Trump may resign yet, a new Saviour may appear, the sun may explode, or Ted may pray that Bernie awakens…
Is that Incoming I hear?
