This week we are confronted by the twin spectacles of a democrat running against another by claiming the other one is s socialist and she is to the other candidate’s right, and what’s the matter with you Americans?
…. and the National Review and 20 leading conservatives having a ideogasm over being against Trump because while he is apparently RUNNING AWAY with the nomination, he fails the conservative test.
Both of these items is yet ANOTHER nail in the coffin of the conventional way of doing things.
This manner of govt matured in the post WW2 milieu and worked just fine.
But it has spawned an out of control executive branch which a lazy congress has granted the power to expand its own authority without reference to legislation (EPA anyone?)
This has resulted in, for in stance an IRS engaging in political repression without jail or Tea Party folks being disappeared. They just ruin your lives with the endless resources of the federal govt. If you follow someone for 500 miles, you’ll be able to give them a ticket, guaranteed.
It has also resulted in uprisings in the people against BOTH the out of control govt AND the big business world it rewarded, as the class which came to power including the academic justification clique in both parties in the 50′s has matured into a single entity with interests FAR REMOVED from the people.
We now see before us a govt of inaction, failure, and national division of undreamt of consequences with other nations taking advantage of this class at THE PEOPLE’S cost.
The result is that the old idea of liberal/progressive vs conservative is OUT THE WINDOW as the nation views what might be a couple of guys with fire hoses who see the same conflagration WE DO.
To be sure Drudge poll is the most unscientific imaginable, except that it has meaning.
So, Hillary, National Review, the people DON’T CARE about the labels of Socialist, communist, or Conservative. Few want to hear about abortion, choice, Jesus, 1% or anything else.
The people are concluding that classical liberal/progressive govt has failed, Obama is a numbing failure and its all a bunch of platitudes for the euchred, and conservatives do nothing, except mouth complaints then accept the way it is violating their promises, therefore a label of progressive or conservative, or communist, socialist, or right wing is BALONEY.The message is:
‘FIX IT oh and BTW, we know who broke it’The wings in the center have FAILED and other forces are at work.
We now must pray, and I mean pray, that these forces BELIEVE in the founding document, and will put its values above themselves.
I remain undecided
This primary season is one helluva ride. It's been a long time coming, but here it is.
All of the usual bets are off!
Yesterday a good friend said to me: "I can't figure out what you're doing with your Tweets. You aren't supporting Donald Trump, are you?"
I responded: "I'm targeting the establishment wing of both parties."
I went on to explain to her a bit of what transpired in my face-to-face meeting with one of the men at the top of the GOP-establishment pyramid. Every time I uttered a sentence, she gasped.
I concluded by saying: "Both parties are corrupt to the core. We who love this republic no longer has a political party that speaks for us."
In American politics.
I see no evidence that Sanders believes in the Founding Document.
Donald Trump would mouth that he believes in the Founding Document, but I doubt he understands it's complexities.
Ted Cruz believes in the Founding Document, but I do not believe he can win.
We are fucked.
The only good thing to come out of this is, as you say,
"The people are concluding that classical liberal/progressive govt has failed, Obama is a numbing failure and its all a bunch of platitudes for the euchred, and conservatives do nothing, except mouth complaints then accept the way it is violating their promises, therefore a label of progressive or conservative, or communist, socialist, or right wing is BALONEY.
The message is:
‘FIX IT oh and BTW, we know who broke it’"
I should also add:
Sanders would not fix it, he'd make it WORSE.
The problem is ALREADY too much government interference in Capitalism. Too much running of the country in the interests of pseudo-Capitalist oligarchs in big business.
Cruz would not fix it. As much as I believe he believes in what he says, he is still of the system. And he is not a revolutionary.
Trump is the only person I believe would not give a fuck who he offended.
But I don't think he truly understands the problems and too many of his friends ARE BIG BUSINESS OLIGARCHS.
Again, we are fucked.
If Sanders actualy DID get elected he WOULD make it worse.
TORCHES AND PITCHFORKS BABY
Sanders supports a more "generous" Medicare. Fine and dandy. Just a few more dollars out of my already stretched income to pay for allotments, political trinkets, bureaucratic odds and ends.
I don't trust the GOP.
I do trust that Trump will do what he says:
Reinvigorate the job market
