This is the first time I have really given MY opinion on the upcoming election. I have posted a few articles from others, but refrained from speaking out. So here is my opinion as of today.When the Guccifer 2.0 leaks, posted over at Inverse.com, document how the Clinton’s and the media would collude to give Hillary the Republican candidate she wanted to run against. Rubio / Cruz / Bush / Kasich/ etc. would basically embrace the same policies as the Hildebeast, so with all of her negatives, she couldn’t run against someone slightly less evil with the same agenda. Therefore, create a real life straw man to run against. Paint Team R as totally insane, thus relegating the US to single party rule from now on. Shame all the white fly-over voters as gun crazed racists and make sure to have race charged riots around Trump. The ground is set for the gun grab (seeing as she’ll likely get 3 Supreme nominations), the permanent encroachment of the police state to protect us from gay hating right wing gun nuts, and, of course, etc, etc.
Don’t get me wrong–it is totally amusing that Trump’s Bulworth routine gets the ignorant Team Ders in a total hizzy fit. But it is also equally amusing that Team R folk actually think TPTB was going to allow a real election and that the guy to really bring change was going to be a corrupt crony of the Mafia. Even if Trump was a legit candidate, it isn’t as if he’d ever get anywhere with Congress, since both sides would line up against him (even for his sane policies, like making nice with Russia and defunding NATO). The Bern at least stuck to the Neocon foreign policy agenda, and he’d have found enough votes on Team D to pass through free college (after the corporations figured out to how make sure they could still make money off of it).
So we’re screwed unless either aliens come to save us, or Russia and China actually smack us down (and, unfortunately for us, it would take the sort of smack down the axis powers received to get us to cower for the next century…)
