Political Rant

Why are there people who are 100% serious in their support for Trump.  Not only does he continue to show his political illiteracy in a early 1900s snake oil salesman-esque pitch, but the man is an 80's movie villain.  The rich, WASP, meathead bully wearing an ascot bragging about his daddy's accomplishments as his own.

Vera Coking from New Jersey can tell you all about it.  He tried for over a decade to get her out of her house so that he could put in a limousine parking lot.  Real man of the people.  Or, we could look at the example he sets when he tried for over a decade to rid he prestigious Fifth Avenue in NYC of veteran run street vendors. More examples abound.

The cult of personality that surrounds this man who lacks a personality is astounding.   We are talking about a man who boasts of not needing forgiveness from God.  Apparently, Trump is the Second Coming of Christ.  Christians who support him say we aren't electing a pastor, but a president.   That magically excuses the man's history of fitting perfectly into the Bible's example of a violent and foolish man?  He is a vacuous, self-worshipping man who only gleams his views based on polling.  Once the election is over we will see the biggest political thug since Obama.

What about Bernie Sanders?  I shouldn't even have to mention that complete jackass, but unfortunately the youth vote is dangerously uninformed enough to make his special brand of idiocy a legitimate platform in this race.  Free everything! Except the rich pay for it.  He pedals his cure for what ails you to the youth who think that the man is keeping them down.  Who is the man?  The rich.  It seems these teens should be applauded for their vow of poverty!  They fail to recognize that when they are out of college at that good paying job he promises will be there if they vote for him (that would be a miracle to behold!  a high tax on the rich and the corporation they own producing anything other than an incentive to move their operations out of this country followed by mass layoffs in lieu of the automation that they would inevitably embrace while increasing the cost of goods to help offset the tax increase would be a miracle on the scale of Christ feeding the 5000) they will then see the taxes that they voted for.  They will see their utter ignorance of how taxes work after they spend all that time in college and time in their jobs working for promotions and raises just to make the same as the person taking their order at Chipotle.

The poor supporting Sanders is only slightly less puzzling.  You're not rich, so no one can be rich?  That's just vindictive.  Grow up.  Where does that leave the world?  It doesn't make you less miserable.  It just makes more people miserable.  What happens when the government runs out of people to taax?  What happens when people no longer have any incentive to work or get ahead in their career? No one knows because that kind of economy always mysteriously collapses.  Weird.

What's that? North Korea?  Oh. Forgot about that sterling example of happiness and human rights.  After the Korean War  (I know, I know, it's technically not over) South Korea went the way of the free market and North Korea went the way of socialism.  I wonder who has the better quality of life?

To be completely honest, no economic system is perfect, but free market and free enterprise is the best one there is.  The worst criticisms of that economic model is actually against crony capitalism.  They are not the same.  What is truly ironic is that the whacko socialists that attacks and free market with charges of crony capitalism don't realize the very definition of a free market impossible for crony capitalism, but socialism is crony capitalism at it's finest.

The problem is obvious with this country.   It lost it's God and in some doing has lost it's values.  This amoral mindset has led to abandoning critical thinking in attempting not to offend anyone because being non-offensive is what replaced true values.  The truth can be offensive.  So what?  That doesn't make it any less true.  Hiding the truth or keeping people stupid enough not to look for the truth only hurts them even more.  It leaves us with the message this world is in today.

Sickening.  Trump. The left. Sanders. Clinton.  You're all disgusting mental midgets destroying yourself in a vain attempt at destroying others.  All to make yourself feel more important than what you really are.  Turn back from your iniquity and look at the destruction you have wrought.  Then tell me if any of it was worth it.
