The Government today……..

14519667_10210983726929606_493848929980012342_n I have heard the “lesser of two evils” and “we still have chance in the next election” argument in 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012. It always comes out during the entertainment, oops, I mean selection, oops, I mean the election cycle. And look where we are today. So much more worse. Obama wasn’t even the lesser of two evils. He was God. We already have Hillary Clinton’s blood on our hands from her role as Secretary as State and nothing is showing that anything will change under her administration (check her corporate donors). Imperialism is the goal even if means nuclear war. A little nuclear bomb here and there that won’t affect the white world except maybe Russia and Eastern Europe. The issues are so US centric as most are even from the progressive press. Americans care more about social justice for Americans, (a good thing) especially white Americans but if the price to pay means bombing innocent children and civilians in strange countries thousands of miles away, so be it. Paris Accords? Nothing will be done and nothing ever will as in all the previous Climate Change meetings because the rich countries, especially the US don’t want to because it cuts into profits. Read Naomi Klein’s, “This Changes Everything” for more on this. Check Clinton’s contributions from Big Oil and Energy. Take the Russia issue. There is no context whatsoever for an audience who know nothing whatsoever about Russia except it’s part of the Soviet Union? Russia is the aggressor. It has always been the aggressor. Don’t put your hands over my ears and sing while I give you a counterargument.  Why would Russian attack Ukraine? Why would it attack the Baltic States? For what purpose? The Cold War is over. Why is Russia reacting to the constant NATO presence and military maneuvers on its borders a bad thing? Unlike NATO, Putin has reacted only verbally so far. Why is it being interpreted as getting ready to invade but 30,000 NATO troops on Russia’s borders, is not? Why is NATO even doing that? What would the US do if Russia held maneuvers on the borders of Canada and Mexico? And frankly, why do we still have NATO? It’s a Cold War invention and now that the Cold War is over, it is constantly looking for a reason for its existence even if it means blowing us up out of existence. Check Clinton’s contributions from the defense industry. These are the kind of issues that need to be included with background and context but all you get is 140 character tweet headlines and people think they know it all. Until you ask them specifics. Then you hear, “My mind is made up. Don’t confuse me with the facts.” And finally, Clinton may be the lesser of two evils, but voting for her means you have voted for a person who lied and cheated her way into the Presidency. Knowing just this, how can you vote for her let alone expect integrity and anything to change? We just might as well eliminate the elections altogether, put in “our” candidate and spare us the 2 year reality show. Oh, wait…..Go Stein!
