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 messiah 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!
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.
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.
