The debates, along with the entire two-party system we continue to allow to control us, are straight garbage. I didn't bother watching the 2nd one
live as I figured it would be akin to watching 13 year olds argue about who was cooler. Lo and behold when I caught it on CNN a few days later my
supposition was proven correct.
I didn't hear anything along the lines of constructive plans or detailed ideas on how to turn around the cesspool we are currently living in. I
watched two grown men argue over minor points and dates of who said what when and listened to them lie to each other and everybody watching about what
they would do if elected.
Same old nonsense as usual.
It's pretty evident to anyone with half a brain that is still capable of utilizing some critical thinking skills that it doesn't matter which one of
these lying scumbags is elected. Big Finance and Big Corporation are going to continue gaining more wealth and power, our civil liberties are going to
continue being eroded, we're going to maintain our gradual slide into serfdom, and the police state is going to keep getting more firmly
I'm of the opinion now that it's too late to see any meaningful change happen in politics, the status quo is too well dug in and the tentacles have
too firm a grasp for us to shake loose.
We're screwed, I wonder what it's going to look like in 20 years.
And for the record I'm not a pessimist, just a realist.
