Explain how obama was the "positive" timeline?
Both choices were rotten.
Surely your not on about the "hope and change" crap.
With either in charge, our country has little short term hope and the only change is what little is left in our pockets...
till they redistribute it.
I've lived through 8 presidents. It has been a slow progression deeper into totalitarianism.
Is something coming? You betcha.
Is it positive? After we go through a nice little patch of pure hell, we will make it out and it we should be better for it. Nothing but what is
pure is left after fire.
If you think the pres is deserving of some sort of apotheosis, you really need to reconsider.
Most likely, you are about half my age and have somehow stayed hopeful. Good for ya. I've seen and learned far too much to be anything more than
skeptical and expectant.
Things will get better IN THE LONG GAME, but the potus will have nothing to do with it except to get us closer to the crucible.
So be it.
Just as William Bonney said in Young Guns:
You remember the stories John use to tell us about the the three chinamen playing Fantan? This guy runs up to them and says, "Hey, the world's
coming to an end!" and the first one says, "Well, I best go to the mission and pray," and the second one says, "Well, hell, I'm gonna go and buy
me a case of Mezcal and six whores," and the third one says "Well, I'm gonna finish the game." I shall finish the game, Doc.
Well friend, regardless, I shall finish the game.
