I’d rather have President Donald J. Trump than to be forced to endure a possible 8 years of that shrieking old hag, Hillary Clinton. Seriously, why can’t the Clintons just die already, like normal people. Must we suffer the slings & arrows of 4-8 years of being told how awful and deplorable we are? 4-8 years of being abused, maligned, and slandered at the highest levels, just because a not-insignificant portion of our populace was smoking crack and voted for Donald Trump?
Trump is a huge question mark, but maybe that’s what we need. The rest of our government – we know exactly what we’ll get out of them. They’ve been giving it to us good & hard since the turn of the century. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still not voting for that vulgar imbecile, but given the choice between him and her, I’d say he’s a better option, or at least he’d be entertaining at times. I guarantee she will never be entertaining.
Our nation, and indeed the world, are on the cusp of going up in flames. The thought of either of these two freaks leading our country through the storm that lies ahead scares the shit out of me. Civilizations rise & fall. That is the way of the human. People remain content to suffer cruelties until the moment they aren’t. We’re seeing a popular backlash begin on both sides of the spectrum. Which “leader” would give liberty a better chance of surviving if they were in charge when the balloon went up? I’d say neither.
I think once people are thoroughly disenfranchised (by whomever is elected) we will see the spark that lights the world on fire. No politician is going to save you. No “leader” is going to fix what ails our world. Thomas Hobbes knew that humans revert to their natural state as water seeks its own level when he said “Humanity is likely on the verge of returning to the mean, and the mean is exactly that: mean.”
In case some have forgotten their Hobbes: solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short.
Sleep tight, kids.
