She may have had a better handle on what to do on healthcare, but she’s a neocon.
Elizabeth Warren, who I’d support, has made it crystal-clear that she’s not running. This basically leaves me at choosing Biden or whatever truly horrendous right wing extremist fuck-stick the GOP allows the crazed baggers to nominate. Or maybe someone can beat Biden in a primary. I don’t claim to know, but historically VPs have succeeded POTUS’s.
Who should I vote for in the general election? The Green candidate, who (if they get enough votes) will get the truly horrendous right wing extremist fuck-stick the GOP allows the crazed baggers candidate elected? The Libertarian candidate (don’t insult my intelligence)? Maybe I should protest the complete failure of the American political system by writing in Goofy or Minnie Mouse, which would result in the election of the truly horrendous right wing extremist fuck-stick the GOP allows the crazed baggers to be nominated.
I agree we’re trapped by our system. I don’t agree letting the truly horrendous right wing extremist fuck-stick the GOP allows the crazed baggers candidate GETS INTO THE WHITE HOUSE and then runs the world into the ground to teach the world a lesson about electing truly horrendous right wing extremist fuck-stick the GOP allowing the crazed baggers is the best outcome.
We NEED government. Do you want to drive anywhere? You need government. Do you want your bank to treat you fairly? You need government.
We NEED people who can compromise to get things done.
We NEED (a long list of things, including) to raise the minimum wage, to stop demonizing people, kids, who are escaping violence and certain death, To make people understand that humans are responsible for global climate change, that giving more money to corporations to stash overseas doesn’t help our economy, that allowing corporations to extract OUR wealth without charging them (by HEAVY taxation) is wrong, that treating women differently from men, that corporations are people isn’t supported by the US constitution…
Whew, I ran our of breath…
There’s more. We need our media to tell us the truth, not promote war on behalf of corporate profits, at the cost of poor and middle class lives. We need politicians who will REQUIRE that families that benefit from war either contribute a child, or their profit, to the war machine. There are SO MANY moral solutions that we could pursue.
So, who’s the next, best, POTUS? Who should I get behind?
Or should we all let it go to hell. To teach “Us” a lesson.
While we fight it out, to the death, while the wealthy watch us kill each other from their castles.
Which we allowed them to build.
