The other day, I started a thread asking for the left to share their thoughts for the new leader. I didn't get many thoughtful replies, but I did
get a few. But aside from those thoughtful replies, I noticed that my initial idea may have been right all along. That there are two camps, and not
much else. Of the two camps, there is the Trump supporters (anywhere from "I love Trump" to "I tolerate Trump") and the Trump haters. Not
necessarily all left vs. right either. And the scary part is the Trump haters seem to have adopted the mentality that anything Trump is for, they are
against. Even things that make sense. So where does that leave us?
In 895 days from today, there will be an election. A leader will be elected, and we will all have to deal with the results, much as we have for every
election in the past. The Trump election really solidified the crazy for me. Seeing people claiming the world would end, Nuclear War was eminent, it
will all be over, we must move to another country. All without waiting a bit to see what might transpire. Well, we have had a bit to see what Trump
is about. And while I didn't have much that I expected from him, other than that we still are around after his 4 years, he has exceeded my
expectations Bigley. I would still rather have a more presidential leader, just for the ease of not having to defend some crazy stuff he does. But I
think overall, it's pretty far from the disaster I was told was coming.
So here we are, this close to the next phase, and everyone seems to be on autopilot. No real leaders emerging from the left, and no standouts from
the right. And we have yet to see the amazing "others" like Jill Stein or Gary Johnson. So at what point will some new blood step up? Or will we
wait to be told by the usuals who to vote for?
It's a bit too quiet on that front......
