OK People time to put up or shut up, prove you're not a shill and a propaganda machine for your candidate of choice. We've already had a great thread
where you needed to prop up your candidate with positivity while not attacking the other candidate. Now we have a new exercise. Prove you are aren't
working with blinders on. Here's the rules, you need to # talk your candidate. Show us where you disagree with them, what you might distrust about
them. Give us a reason to believe you're not blind to their faults and potential failings. That your faith in them isn't blind and you can see them
with the # stained glasses of actual humanity and leave the rose colored glasses at home. You are not allowed to tell us why the other candidate is
worse, in fact, you're not allowed to mention the other candidate by name at all. This is about your candidate and what you disagree with or makes
you nervous about supporting them. Not only that, but you cannot talk about your candidate in the positive. No trying to balance out the negative
with positive talk. We all know how much you love your candidate. This is about showing you're doing more than hero worshipping and simply toying
the party line.
I'll start with Trump, because I know half the people here think I'm a Trump supporter anyway. I'll likely be voting for him, but would rather
He's been caught in several lies or mistakes. Which means the chance we'll get an honest and transparent administration is no better than anyone
else. Either that or he's not very researched on many facts a. of time. He's quick to talk out his ass.
He's easy to goad, he's a narcissist, and as such lacks true humility. Like most narcissist he can take an offense, real or imagined and react to it
in crazy extreme ways. He's unlikely believe he did wrong no matter if willing to concede it for polititical expediency.
While he never officially joined the elite's cabal, he's still closely involved with them. Maybe there's a seat waiting for him, and he's doing this
song and dance to get the growing and pervasive anti-establishment vote, a category I belong in. I'm very skeptical of his authenticity here. The
elite are tricky bastards, and he's got many business dealings with them as well as mutual business ties. He's also stocked his economics department
with many of these elite.
He's worked as an entertainer and businessman, which means he knows how to put on a good show, and is well educated in fabrication. This makes much
of what he says and does questionable. As an entertainer and businessman he's more than capable of pulling the wool over our eyes. Especially when
you consider many bad business deals in his past where he had no issue exploiting people. Not to mention the whole college fiasco. As such there's
good reason to be suspicious of his goals and motivations.
I think I've gone far enough as I'm having to do two candidates here.
Jill Stein's turn the candidate I'd rather be voting for.
She and the Green Party are big supporters of BLM and have both accepted and recognized much of the worst aspects of the movement as demonstrated by
many of the speakers at the convention and the unwillingness to distance themselves from such divisive rhetoric. In addition in pandering to such
division, she actually believes that reparations are something to consider. There are many aspects of BLM I agree with, but their methodology is
terrible and frankly more harmful than helpful to fixing those problems.
She's an idealist, while I love this about her, it also comes with a bit of a naivety that may make her actually useless at accomplishing anything in
our corrupt and broken system. To some degree compromise, as much as I hate it, is necessary. There's and very effective and pervasive wall in the
political world that makes success as a true believer basically impossible. It also causes her to do things silly things like break the law for all
the right reasons on live TV in front of several witnesses... You can't help if you're in jail sweety, but I applaud the effort, don't do it. I
don't like being made a hypocrite by defending your law breaking while admonishing another candidates no matter how much worse. (Hmmm I sorta broke
my own rules here and tried to mitigate... This is actually hard)
Since I did two candidates I think this is enough to get the ball rolling. Prove you're not a shill, get slinging.
