Saying that Trump is an evil sack of vomit does not equate to support for Hellary.
Just so we are clear, she is a cold hearted, bloodthirsty, megalomaniacal piece of work, with nothing to recommend her to anyone, other than a heap
of DNC support, which means nothing to some one with any desire to see the people possess power to elect their leader in an unfettered manner.
Frankly, I think she should be kept as far from political office as it is possible to be. In short, neither candidate is acceptable. Rather than
voting for either one, it might be wise if someone started a campaign to get folks to write to whatever electoral commission exists in the US, to tell
them, en masse, that both of these individuals cannot be trusted worth a god damn, and that the signatory to the letter or emails as get sent, insist
that better candidates be summoned forth, before any election is actually held.
Get the majority doing that from right now, and at least the world will know, because those letters will be copied and posted to Facebook, that the
American people did not pick between them out of genuine love for either one!
Don't get me wrong, my nation has been given some utterly terrible choices for leader before now, and was last time around. If I recall correctly it
was a choice between the wettest, most useless, soft handed, hard work averse cretin to grace the leadership of the Labour Party since Tony Blair, Ed
Milliband, and the only individual more terrified of sweating for his money than he is, David "call me Dave" Cameron, a man who has made it his
business to ruin as many lives amongst working people, as it is physically possible to do.
We got shafted, and our people complained bitterly on Twitter, the ones that weren't drawn by either one of these useless cretins at least. The
lowest turnout imaginable was the result, thirty something percent. We have a government for whom less than half the people who are eligible to vote,
voted. Not only that, but there was no effort to make our displeasure felt by our political class at all, other than the low turn out. My feeling is,
we should have done what I described above, or insisted that any turnout below fifty percent be read by the election commission as a vote of no
confidence in either party or potential prime minister.
It did not happen. People were caught up in the hustle and bustle and programming of election time, as per usual.
However, in the recent referendum here in the UK, for all that it comes with some significant issues still to be resolved, we had a very big turnout,
bigger than the turnout for our last general election by a huge margin. I get the feeling that if our political establishment ever try to get us to
accept a hegemony again, there will be significant outcry, such as to make doing the business of state utterly impossible. I will be calling for that,
in every circle I can influence, in every bar I converse in, on every comments section, and on this site, from here on out.
I have said this to other people before, and I will say it to you now. I value your freedom as much as I value my own. The freedom to be governed by
those you elect, not those who are forced upon you is paramount to a free society. Reducing your choices to one bum deal or another does not
constitute the freedom to choose. It constitutes put up, or shut up, and that is bad for anyone forced to live under such a ridiculous system. It
makes it too easy for money to be bound up in politics, and for fascism of one sort or another, either overt or covert, to take root in the system and
its every appendage.
In summary, if there is any way on Gods green Earth to see it happen, insist on better representation than you are getting from the system as it
stands, or insist on a replacement for it.
