First of all, that FBI guy is not the cause of the loss of this election! I am going to tell you what is:
- The Democrats NEVER choose the most popular candidate! They allowed the media to make Howard Dean look bad when anyone with half a brain knows you can turn down the roar of a crowd, thereby making it “seem” like Dean is yelling for no reason. Dennis Kucinich was a great candidate. IGNORED! They put him so far on the end of the stage that no one even saw him. And Bernie? Bernie was the most popular candidate that we have seen in contemporary history! Bernie drew crowds of 20 – 60,000 EVERYWHERE he went. That’s the reason young people got angry & didn’t vote.
- The party has turned it’s back on us. Yeah, I know, that’s what they’ve been saying about the Repugs, right? Oops, sorry, I mean the Republicans. We are sick of WAR! But who cares? No one running for office. Or at least, no one that the media is paying any attention to. The Dems have become Republicans & the Republicans are about as far right as they can get. WE NEED A 3rd, 4th & 5th PARTY! Cuz the powers that be do not give a crap about us, the citizens. The ones who pay your salary, the ones that vote you into office.
- Well, this is still related to #2, but this needs a separate section all it’s own. Bill Clinton passed NAFTA, the worst thing he could have done for this country. It was also the worst thing he could have done for Mexico. Canada, well, I guess that’s not really a problem. But have you noticed how violence has steadily increased in Mexico since NAFTA passed? That’s because they are bringing drugs here to sell & they will kill whoever they have to in order to make their millions. Trump said he was bringing jobs back to this country & since he CAN AT LEAST bring back his companies back to the U.S., I guess people believed him!
- Marijuana was made illegal for all the wrong reasons back when slavery ended. Basically, the blacks had a higher quality rope so some rich (white) rope companies got DC to criminalize hemp (which included marijuana). SO WHY HAVE THEY NOT DECRIMINALIZED MARIJUANA? Several presidents have admitted to smoking it & it is a known fact that the rich do whatever the hell they want in their homes, legal or not!
- Both sides seem to care much more about helping out large corporations than giving back our tax money to US, those who paid them! (Case in point, see photo below.)
- I didn’t mention Hillary’s involvement in Honduras’ coup de tat. I didn’t want to give any more ammunition to the Right. I won’t say much because we have this MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX that is the number 1 money-maker in this country. At least one president & one candidate may have been killed trying to stop it. So, I guess the Democrats decided to get in on the action. Which brings us back to #1: WE ARE SICK OF WAR, SICK OF THE BLOWBACK & SICK OF THE FACT THAT NO ONE ACTUALLY CARES THAT WE, (I REPEAT) THE CITIZENS THAT PAY YOUR SALARY, ARE SICK OF WAR. I didn’t even care about Trump talking to Russia; they went broke in the Arms Race & have very little power. THAT’S WHAT MAKING WAR WILL DO TO AN EMPIRE. AND THAT’S WHAT’S BEEN HAPPENING FOR THE PAST 35 YEARS!
- DOES ANYONE CARE THAT ONLY ABOUT HALF THE PEOPLE WHO CAN VOTE, DO? All anyone had to do is get those people out to vote & the election results would be totally different. Can we really even call ourselves a Democracy with so many people not voting? I don’t think so!
- Does the media really think they are blameless in how this election went? They loved the sound bites, loved giving Trump exactly what he wanted. No one bothered to questions Trump’s so-called “FACTS.” Why? That’s a great question! The media also played Trump’s hateful language over & over. Now that he’s won, the message many kids are getting is that Hate & Bullying are ok. Hate Speech is against the law! Trump should be in Jail, not sitting back acting all civilized now that he has given a big shot of speed to all the haters & bullies in this country!
- Finally, I have seen a return to sexism that is almost as bad as it was in the 60’s. Did anyone really think getting Latinos out to vote would help Hillary? The Latino students I’ve been teaching for the past 20 years said they would never vote for a woman. It is sad, but it is also true.
So, you can continue on blaming this guy or that guy for this election. OR you can decide to start being honest & bring Dennis, Howard, Bernie & Elizabeth, as well as numerous others, into the fold & really listen to them BECAUSE THEY REALLY LISTEN TO US! Or you can continue on your merry way, not giving a crap about us. And soon, we will have some very viable 3rd, 4th & 5th parties. IT’S YOUR CHOICE! MAKE THE RIGHT ONE FOR A CHANGE!
