Trump or Clinton? What Difference Does It Make?


ProvidenceMine here.

I would like to start off by saying that I don't normally write about politics, but considering this past election I think that I really need to say something here at this time.

First off, I am an anarchist. I think that the two party system is one huge gargoyle, and that the Republican and Democratic parties are just two wings of that gargoyle.

Secondly, I really don't see what difference it would have made if Clinton had won the contest.  She had a very dark past of crookery that goes all of the way back to Whitewater up to the Clinton Foundation which took advantage of the miseries of poor people in poor countries.  As president, that psychopath would have been a disaster just like the orange haired simp who will be heading to the White House early next year.

Truth of the matter is whether you wanted Clinton to win or Trump, you are a Kool-Aid imbiber.

And you need to go cold turkey and detox right now.

I am so sick and tired of people on the one hand complaining about the system, and then on the other hand supporting that very corrupt system by participating in it. I understand why some might not have gone for Clinton, as she was a part of the establishment.

I get that.

Why then, in the name of All That Is Holy, would you vote in another establishment figure.  Trump is a billionaire real estate tycoon who has used foreign labor that he later stiffed, used imminent domain to take property from a family for his selfish purposes, and has grabbed the countless pussies of uncooperative young ladies among other things.

And yet you saw him as anti-establishment.

Clearly, the average person doesn't know what anti-establishment is anymore.

Dwight MacDonald, John Zerzan, Ted Kazinsky, Emma Goldman-these are anti-establishment figures.    If you truly want to know what anti-establishment looks like, then you should look up these people on Wikipedia.  Then, you will see that Trump-like Clinton-is NOT anti-establishment. You can educate yourself or you can continue to suck from the bottle of Kool-Aid while sitting in your oversized baby doodoo diapers.

 Both Congress and the Senate got single-digit ratings in various poles. We had two retrograde creatures as presidential candidates who were supposedly disliked by most potential voters out there.
People reported that they were tired of the corrupt political system where they felt voiceless and ignored. People were tired of losing jobs while the rich got richer.

And what did you do?  You participated in that very goddamn system that you claimed to be so tired of.

You rallied for these clowns and saw them as the messiahs for change that they never were.

You also rallied for a man named Bernie Sanders who basically fed you all the same bullshit that Obama fed you eight years ago. Hell, the campaigns were so similar it made my mouth drop that you all fell for it all over again-even the slogans were similar for Christ's Sake!

Obama: Change We Can Believe In!

Sanders: A Future We Can Believe In!

Really, people?

If a system truly disgusts you, if you truly want to see any change then the last thing that you should do is participate in the system that truly disgusts you. To expect change that way is beyond madness, it's mental retardation.  I know that's politically incorrect, but it's true.

What should have happened during these campaigns is no participation. The candidates should have been on their platforms pontificating to near empty auditoriums, and Election Night should have been a time of staying home en masse.  The turnout rate should have been so low that its silence would have been deafening, and the Powers That Be would have been shocked to the core.

And frightened.

Instead, you came out like good little boys and girls and voted for people who don't give a rat's ass for the common man. While Trump's supporters partied like glazed-eyed children high on fructose, the Clinton supporters looked so forlorn that they could have been  extras for a movie version of Oliver Twist.  One young woman looked so heartbroken that you would have thought that she was denied seconds of porridge!  

Trump supporters should enjoy their time in the sunshine right now because when Trump disappoints, as I know that he will, they will have the same forlorn looks on their faces as their houses go into foreclosure after finding out that they have been denied foodstamps after losing their jobs to foreign workers on work visas.

Don't say that I didn't warn you.

However, after your disappointment you could do some  shopping therapy and get yourself something nice to put a little spring in your step and a little smile on that face.

I know of a really great place!

Have you heard of Rolling Acres Mall?

It's all the rage.

I do have to warn you.

If you don't want a good reality smack over the head then you'll need to make sure that you duck the wrecking ball as it swings by.


  1. Hi Okay.

    Duly noted.

    I don't see you suggesting any real positive workable alternatives either.

    I do think Sanders would have made a difference but we just didn't get to the tipping point.

    "The system," as you call it has a far better chance of surviving than of anarchists inheriting the power--though even that seems like an oxymoron.

    I think Russell Brand has the right take on it though I don't know what it can really look like in practice. I do believe we each have to take responsibility for our personal "sphere of influence" and be as loving as we can be, in each situation, to the most benefit.

    Check out Russel Brand's video here:

    Somewhere in a parallel universe, The Cleveland Indians won the World Series, and Hillary won the election, or perhaps Bernie.


  2. Hello, Larry!
    When it comes to positive alternatives I think that would take another article to get into; all I know is that this oligarchy has always been passed off as a democracy and it has got to go.
    I think that the problem has always been that the PTB get away with their nonsense because we sit like dutiful school children and question nothing. We accept the candidates that they have selected for us and allow them to decide things for us without any input from the citizens. Many things decided are done so by secret tribunals. Nothing changes. The same members in Congress and the Senate are elected time and time again with no real change at all.

    That's the fault of the people. The only time when change will truly happen will be if we walk away from the larger system and start focusing on our neighborhoods, our blocks and do it ourselves. We can even come up with our own currency and work as equals with no hierarchy to answer to. That's the only way that I can see.

    As for the Russell Brand video, I do think that he makes some good points and it's a video that others should take a look at. I do think that he is a little too optimistic about the system changing for the better through reevaluation. Maybe it will, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    I think the answer is to go local and work together, basically.

  3. Well, go local is basically what I said as "personal sphere of influence."

    I tend to believe in the oil-change model--when you put in the new oil, it flushes out the old oil. But things occur in cycles and the pendulum swings wide between them. Now is the time to hold on, and to watch Trump like a hawk for anything illegal that he does. Anarchism may do well as an ideal, but while we're on this planet I think we have to work with what is manifest here already, and the system isn't going anywhere.

  4. When you really think about it, going local is a part of anarchy. It's against the state.

    As for watching Trump like a hawk, I think that the protests that have been going on is a good start. These need to continue and be sustained. Also, right-wing people like Libertarians who are disappointed with Trump might want to join in the protests. They need to be large, loud, and non-stop.

    Occupy Wall Street simply didn't cut it.
