My BFF and I decided to get away from the insanity of the RNC in Cleveland. Ah me. Cops who wanna be soldiers, looking like robocop. Innocent people being killed all over the world. Americans having a love affair with guns. It makes me wanna cry. Remember the cute little girl from the last campaign who cried because she was tired of Mitt Romney and Bronck Obama? (link to youtube video here). I feel the same way.
I'm heartbroken. I've been a staunch feminist all my life. I marched back in the day at Kent State, when we used to be able to get good weed in Ohio. In Ohio if you smoke weed, they will throw your ass in jail, sorry I digress.
I'm heartbroken. I'm heartbroken because I don't like the first viable female candidate we've ever had. We are so behind here. Heck, the UK just elected its SECOND female prime minister. I love Bernie. I hope a Libertarian gets enough points to be in the debates. I'm not all that enamored with them either, but damn we need a more of a choice. I finally understand what my dad meant when he said you pick "THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS." Fuck that. If it's shit it's shit. There's not some shit that is nicer than any other. If it looks like shit and smells like shit and tastes like shit, it's shit.
Please, please, please Mr. President don't leave us. You know how it is when you wanna cheat on your girl and then you lose her over something stupid? That's what this is like. One night you're lonely and scared, and your ex is looking so damn good......you don't know what you had till it's gone. Now Mr. President is going to have to answer for Guatanamo Bay, his use of drones and his massive NSA survellienece, but I think he needs another 8 years with a Congress willing to do its job. Perhaps we can put off the presidential electional and do just senatorial instead. I mean since we're going to get rid of the Second Amendment (I hope), then it wouldn't be that hard to amend the Twenty-Second Amendment. Mr. President, you might be our FDR.
Mr. President please don't leave us. But, Mr. President, I imagine you are dog tired. I've loved watching your beautiful daughters grow up. I love Mrs. Obama. Maybe she can be President. As I write these words, I realize it's a pipe dream. You must be so dog tired.
I don't know what to do. This may be the first election since I became legal age that I haven't voted in. And it's not apathy. There's nothing passive about it. So much hatred being spewed. It reminds me of the 80s and the Reagan era. I was terrified nuclear bombs were coming at any second all the time. At least with Bill Clinton - who is part of the mortgage bubble and investment bank/commercial bank merging that helped create the 2008 crash - at least I enjoyed some abundance in that time period. I put myself through school because I caught the Clinton/Gore vapors. Unfortunately, George Bush fucked it all up. Bill Clinton left a surplus budget when he left office. When Georgie left office, he left Prez Obama a trillion dollar deficit. People forget that Obama INHERITED those problems. He didn't create them, and I don't know how he has managed to keep the world together. He's a ninja. I mean look how quietly he took down those fuckers also known as Fox News. Sorry, another digression.
We Americans don't know our history. We are intentionally kept ignorant. Don't take my word for it. Do your own research, look up the period in Germany called Weimar. This is pre-Hitler and helped give rise to that mass insanity. Hitler was not so scary on his own, what is scary is that not just a few people followed him.
Don't take my word for it. Do your own research. Research other terrifying totalitarian dictator fascist oligarch regimes. Like Idi Amin. Or Benito Mussolini. Mussolini was chums with Hitler and Stalin. He's particularly frightening because the orange-faced man even looks like him.
