The Less Than Fifty

You know what's worse than the people who support the asshole in the Whitehouse? The people whose heads haven't come out of their asses after witnessing eight years of the last asshole in the Whitehouse, and you know what the beauty of this is? I haven't even offended fifty percent of the country, because the jack-in-hats that are out there trying to shut down the country, shut down the entire Trump family and voice their unimportant opinions don't even make up twenty percent of the country. That's me being generous actually because I am including the basement dwelling morons that pollute social media and do nothing more than click send with their scorn and hate.

The die hard Trump backers are probably in the twenty percent range, but I do give them a lot more leeway because the last asshole had eight years of spreading, hate, lies and enmity to basically make the Trump twenty percent have a pretty good point. Obama and all of his followers brought the "race card" out, and you would swear we are back in the 50s. People are just plain sick of it more than the news will ever admit. They are sick of the crap. Leave it to the blind ranting left to demonstrate that they have not yet begun to crap, but if a long divisive political season has proven anything, it's that the supporters of the asshole in the Whitehouse don't care. As a matter of fact that is one thing I definitely have in common with them, because I have listened to the teasing of idiots long enough to realize that I don't actually care what anyone on the left says. I never will, actually, and somewhere in the last six years I determined that it wasn't worth my time to placate any of them. They are NEVER happy. Their misery is contagious.

Fell free to march for abortions, march against the perception of female rights. That's real rich after forcing a female with a track record of denying any and all women any rights, especially if her husband was involved on us. Feel free to trumpet someone who lied to everyone, near daily, and in the end left the Democratic party devastated to the point where Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi (who nobody takes seriously) are the voices of the party. Well they are the voices of the party when Barack Obama is on vacation somewhere. I mean let's be real here, he's going to be the voice of the Democratic Party until he choses not to be anymore, and look where that got the left. Yeah you see the dirty little secret here is while you protest the asshole in the Whitehouse and what you think he will do to America, there's still a big old free pass to the last asshole. If you ever want America "progressing" towards whatever form of totalitarianism you happen to support again, you should be out protesting the last asshole.

Grow the f*** up ....

What We Get Fed

I'll be happy when this is all behind us, but let's just for a minute discuss the politics of the electoral college. The electoral college was built into the constitution because the United States of America, is just that, "United States" forming a republic and not a democracy. People on the left in particular hate hearing that because pure democracies inevitably lead to what they prefer, a totalitarian regime, voted in by a simple majority, and then usually not relinquishing that power. The electoral college ensured that every state represented by the constitution had a certain amount of pull in each and every presidential election. It is also what creates the off centered balance of elected officials in the senate and even the house of representatives for the most part. It has, whether anyone wants to admit it or not, stemmed back the tide of progressive totalitarianism as long as this country has survived.

Now I am going to dive a bit further. Hillary Clinton did win the popular vote but this was based on running up the totals in heavily blue states, and even more so, running up the totals in heavily urban centers. Los Angeles, New York City and Chicago, went extremely heavy for her, ran up the vote count in those states and gave her a ton of padded stats. Usual heavily red states, found a lot of theoretical Trump voters basically staying home because it didn't seem worth it. In any regard, this is where the electoral college becomes important because there is a lot of real estate in this country that doesn't want Los Angeles, New York City and Chicago picking the president for the rest of them. Again it is a representative republic and not a democracy. Now with that said, we will dig a bit further.

Here's the thing that you probably won't hear very much. All the saber rattling that republican electors should defect to Hillary because the whole thing was unfair, should keep this in mind. Trump lost two electors, who defected as a protest. Neither of them went to Hillary but they did defect. Of the whole shebang Hillary lost five electors, which would come up to 150% more. She would have lost a lot more, but in the state they wanted the most Trump electors to defect from (Pennsylvania) the DNC replaced the people there who intended to defect. Of course to be fair none of the defectors went to Trump, but it does demonstrates the real problem with Hillary. Despite the vote counts going in her favor, from urban centers that traditionally vote for a living, in a country wide election where republicanism is the rule of vote, Hillary Clinton was far less popular than Donald Trump. I stated this before that even though these were the two most detested candidates, probably in the history of politics in general, there were actually a lot more people who started, ended and actually did vote for Donald Trump. People who contend that people only voted for him to make a statement should look at the people that voted for Hillary. They tried to make a statement and it just didn't work. They should have picked a better candidate.

Reality Check

Well a month has gone by since the presidential election and the silliness just goes on and on. I saw a meme going around that said "Wouldn't it be great if people were as upset about political corruption as they are when their sports team loses" and on the surface it looks like a brilliant post. Unfortunately it may be pretty ignorant and here's the reason why. Politics have degenerated to being nothing more than sporting events for most people and it is no way to treat a country.

Here's the reality check that most people still haven't accepted. More people actually went to the polls to vote for Donald Trump than actually went to the polls to vote for Hillary Clinton. Seriously, even if Hillary Clinton got the popular vote it doesn't change the fact that most people who voted for her were either voting for the donkey or voting against the elephant, or Donald Trump. More and more it is appearing that very few people collectively really wanted Hillary to be the candidate or the president in general. If we can all agree on one thing, at least Trump did bring a pile of rabid followers to the party that were just as jazzed to vote for him as they were all along.

Now think about that for a moment. Most people when they take to the social media to thump their chest about something it usually falls under the category of "you lost" or "we win" then actually having anything to do with the betterment of mankind. Trump supporters, just like Obama supporters could watch either one of them kill their children and rape their wives and chalk it up to "They alleviated my financial burdens and took care of my wives needs, four more years!" and it comes down to fandom, and nothing good for anyone. Yes I might get all hopped up when the Patriots win, but I don't waste my time rooting against the other team, I am just rooting for mine. In politics we all seem to take great delight when our guy destroys something and makes the other team miserable.

For the record, I did write a blog after Obama became president hoping he would be the greatest president ever. I didn't vote for him, but I always wish the best for the country. In turn I am no fan boy of Trump but I hope he is the greatest president ever. Unfortunately I am stuck with the same problem I have had since G.H. I could say that he couldn't do worse than the last guy, and then he could turn around like the last four presidents and prove me wrong. Not only about being the best president ever, but doing far worse than the last guy. I mean if the we look back on G.H. and are still grumpy about "No new taxes" then we have ignored the blatant lies, further and far more frequent with each president afterwards. It makes you a groupie for a band of thieves and not someone who actually cares about America. Deal with it.

Enough Already

A hard truth for a lot of people out there is that what you are seeing now is reality, and what you have been told for the last eight years has been hogwash. I'm still just as shocked as anyone that Donald Trump is the president elect, but the reasoning behind it should be more obvious, especially today, than it has been. There are a lot of people who get up every day, go to work, and are perfectly happy with how their life is going. I don't think it outnumbers those that are dissatisfied, but then again the people that are content with life, probably think that a majority (not just a lot of but a majority) of those that are unhappy with the world may have brought it upon themselves.

Eight long years of the most divisive president in the history of America and what have we got? People who openly riot for the wrong reasons, most of which are so obviously spoiled rotten that it just makes people angry. The protests because Trump won are out of hand and anyone who thinks it is "normal" only accept it as normal because they have been told it is. Eight years of old people holding signs has been reported as everything from Klan members to Nazis and spoiled college students, most of which not actually getting a degree that will lead to an honest career, are considered "understood?" Well they aren't understood, and they are the Obama normal.

Hate on me all you want, but watching thousands of people destroy a town in Missouri over and over again, because a criminal was shot being a menace to society, and some people take notice. They hide their feelings on the matter because it isn't socially acceptable to be honest, and then they go out and shock a vote. Go figure? What you see going on right now is the same thing we saw during the "Occupy" movement, and that didn't exactly endear "normal" people to the left. No what it did was scare a lot of people, and NOT JUST WHITE PEOPLE. No it scared "normal" people who are sick of seeing bad behavior being rewarded. They are sick of seeing sloth commended as creative, and most of all they are sick of being hated because they don't agree with the MINORITY.

Over the next four years as we watch rampant disregard for the law, as we see words like racism, sexism, homophobia etc be used simply to shut people up, you will see the education system and the media system continue to proclaim it as healthy. Hopefully within the next four years we will see an end to the hate that has been created over lunatic policies and behaviors subside, but I doubt it. Just like I doubt that the lunatic left out there creating chaos right now will ever be reported as what they are. Bad for humanity in general.

Who Knew

As I stood in the voting booth yesterday there was really only one thing going through my head, "I'm sick of eating shit!" Yes, for a right wing lunatic like myself I have during most of my voting life, gotten behind a candidate, watched them lose in the primary and then had the Republican establishment do their usual "We won, you lost, you have to eat the shit we gave you" dance. It's been infuriating, but the fact remained that their shit won, my shit lost, and tough shit. I did NOT back Donald Trump. I did not want Donald Trump, and I had no intention of voting for Donald Trump. Well that was until I was standing in the voting booth, after hearing the news that George W and Laura Bush had gleefully voted for Hillary Clinton.

After a few decades of listening to how the GOP faithful had picked yet another candidate that I hated, but that was life, I was looking at GOP faithful actively working against a candidate that they didn't like. I filled in the dot for Donald Trump, not because I wanted him to be president, but because I wanted the GOP faithful who have made me miserable for such a long time to feel pain. I wanted George. George, Jeb and every other member of the Republican elite to hear that it is over. It is over that they have any input on a presidential election, and unfortunately the only way I have to do it (and successfully for a change) was to vote for someone that they would all gleefully turn traitor for. The answer from America yesterday was that we hate you all, so sit down and eat your shit.

Of course now we can watch the truth unfold for the next four years. Donald Trump not only has won the Whitehouse by a clear majority of electoral votes, but he somehow has a GOP House and GOP Senate. Now the truth will unfold as the GOP will NOT repeal Obamacare. The GOP will NOT do anything about border security, much less build a wall. The GOP will basically NOT do any of the things that someone who is against the DNC agenda would hope that they would. The reasons for this have been pretty obvious for quite a while now, but let me sum it up in a few words, "It's not their job." No it isn't because the job of the GOP is to secretly go along with the Democrats and do the few things necessary to make conservatives look bad and feel bad. Welcome to America folks.

I also have to say this and a lot of people will disagree with me, but Barack Obama had a lot to do with the Hillary loss. The people in this country who are thoroughly disgusted with him, and have been demonized for eight long years watched him be the most un-presidential jackoff in the history of the world. Going around the country openly talking about how the other candidate is the "Klan Candidate" and fomenting the same old and tired racial disharmony that he has been doing through his entire presidency did not go unnoticed. No as a matter of fact I think a lot of people looked at this small man, and finally said, "No More!" Blast away if you must but many people will actually remember this entire election for what it was. The end of an error.

The National Death Spiral

Humor me for a moment and just pretend you are one of those people plagued with affiliation to a political party in this country. Yes I realize some people reading this might actually be plagued with affiliation to a political party, but since I am going to be moderately insulting here, I am giving everyone a chance to "opt out" as I go. Now of course I am not talking about the Libertarians or the Greenies, these are people for the most part who are loosely connected to movements but unfortunately can't be factored into this. This is about the illusion of two different parties moving towards separate goals, and less about the accumulation of power and swapping back and forth now and then as to who gets to play with it.

In a couple of weeks people in the United States will be allowed (for now) to go out and vote for which of these two parties get to play with the toys of power for the next several years. In the end they are two parts of the same objective. The Democrats seek an ever encompassing government that will be in charge of controlling the lives of every single human being in the country, and the Republicans will play their part. Their part being to do what the Democrats want while pretending to be the horrible other solution. Idiots who blame the Republicans for everything wrong with the country, make no informed thought as to who makes any of the decisions. The only time the Republicans actually block anything the Democrats want, it is only to create the animosity necessary to allow the useful idiots to blame sake on them.

Six years ago, the people flocked to the voting booths to elect Republicans to stop what Obama was doing. They did not. Over the four years that followed, they flocked to the polls to add more Republicans to stop what Obama was doing. They did not. Who's the idiot here? People who elect a wannabe despot or those who elect the people to stop the wannabe despot, and watch them not lift a finger to do so? All the Republicans have done is been there for the death spiral so that it is plausible to one set of idiots to be able to blame them, and another set of idiots to defend them. That which is most plausible is also that which is most possible, and if you are an outsider who hates both sides, then you realize they are both playing their part to simply destroy what your parents and your grandparents had.

I'm sorry to report that it doesn't matter who becomes president of the United States. I can understand the people that back Donald Trump because at least he appears to be someone who wants nothing to do with the death spiral. I can understand the people that back Hillary Clinton, because they are so used to the death spiral that they think it is logical and normal. What I can't understand and I have no tolerance for anymore are the people who haven't noticed the death spiral or actually are so blind to it that they defend either party as NOT being a major contributor to it. I at the very least have stepped out of the circular firing squad that is politics, and simply admit, we're screwed.

The Great Clown College Con Contest

It's amazing to me that we have come to this, but we have. Anyone can say they are for this person or for that person in the upcoming election, but it is starting to shape up like an NFL week when your favorite team has a bye. You're just looking at a pool of horrible candidates, hand picked either by people who rule their respected party or people who don't want their respected party ruled but either or, the upcoming election will have no winner. We'll all be losers.

Theoretically speaking, there was only one person in the entire world who couldn't beat Hillary Clinton, and somehow we found him. As a Libertarian, I should be happy in the fact that it is a great opportunity for my party to gain some ground, except we (collectively, I wasn't on board) found the one used car salesman that no Libertarian in their right mind could take seriously. Hell Gary Johnson sounds a lot like Bernie Sanders, and I assure you, no actual Libertarian sounds like Bernie Sanders. Of course there is Whatsername from the Green Party, but only a few die-hards are going to vote for her when they close the curtain behind them, and can pull the lever for Hillary. They will then put on their "Don't Blame Me I Voted for Jill Stein" buttons. Chances are pretty good that you'll meet more people in your home town who voted for Jill Stein than what the polls said voted for her nationwide.

The amazing thing here is that all of the Vice Presidential candidates are more popular than the actual candidates. A Tim Kaine, Mike Pence, Bill Weld, and Whatshername's Runningmate match-up would have people energized to vote for instead of vote against. Now everyone seems concerned about the down-ballot, because none of these candidates have the kind of legs to get the senators, representatives, governors etc elected. Here in New Hampshire (where either party is always a crap shoot) the advertising campaigns are starting to get insane. I watched almost every available piece of advertising space on the first home game with Tom Brady (trust me, adspace was very expensive) go completely to the two senatorial candidates smearing each other. I have no desire to vote for either of those idiots either.

In my opinion this really is the best year yet for an organized write in campaign. Seriously could you picture the mainstream news reporters having to say, "and Deez Nuts managed to get 10% of the vote in Minnesota?" It could be the first time that we could solve a much bigger dilemma than which socialist gets to finally destroy America, but an issue that effects all of us deeply, which comic book super heroes can get the most votes, Marvel or DC? Then again if I learned anything in this election cycle it has to be that people dressed up like clowns are being banned all across America, and people acting like clowns are going to be running it.
