America: A Time for Decision

Sometimes I like to just kick back and watch it all unravel without commentary. Just simply observing the fools and the foolish as they feel their way through the darkness of their own creation. That’s what I’ve been doing of late and I’ve had some deep thoughts about where this country is and where we seem to be going. Let me explain………..

banana republicThere comes a time in every society and every nation when a people’s must choose. Some call it a “crossroad” but I like to call it “A Time of Decision.” America is now in such a time. We are at a crossroad. We are at a time of decision. Here’s what I mean………

Regarding the upcoming 2016 Presidential race on one hand we have a man who is doing nothing short of playing on people’s fears, biases, and hatreds. He’s playing on our emotions and with grand results. That’s why this candidate has gotten further than anyone thought he would and that’s why he is now the leading candidate for the GOP and appears to have the nomination securely in hand. But is this the kind of person we want to lead our nation, our people?

True leaders and great leaders all have had one thing in common throughout the course of human history. That is, they have all sought to UNITE their people. That’s what truly great leaders do. They seek to unite their people not divide them. But, Trump is not attempting to unite the American people save for a selected group. Instead what he is actually doing is fostering DIVISION and that is a very BAD path for this nation to be on or follow. America is already riddled with division along every line from race to religion to gender to economics. Do we really need or want any more division? That is a question every one of us must now ask ourselves because the future of our nation and our people depends on our answer.  If we make the choice of division then we all must prepare ourselves for the end of America and the end to We The People because that road will only lead to our destruction.  This is something every American needs to seriously think about because on the road of division the end result is that our children and grandchildren have NO FUTURE…..at least not one that we would like to think of or have had ourselves.

On the other end we have Hillary Clinton.  I don’t like her.  Never have.  Her voice makes me cringe!  I don’t agree with a lot of her ideas either.  I see her as a Corporatist who is attempting to sit in the Oval Office so she can make all things nice for her corporate backers.  But, then again, Trump is a corporatist too.  I hope you seriously don’t believe he’s for all of us “little guys and gals.”  He’s not!  Both candidates have more pesos than any of us will every accumulate in our lifetimes combined.  Neither one comes from Main Street.  Both come from that Golden Street where they’ve been fed with silver spoons owned by the Fascist corporatist!

I’m 99.9% certain that the election in November is going to come down to Trump and Clinton and when that time comes I’ll have to go for Clinton in an effort of choosing the less of two evils, sadly.  Why?  Because I think Clinton is not bent on division of our people like Trump is and I see Trump as a loose cannon while Clinton is likely more receptive to the will of the voters.  I don’t like either one but if it comes down to these two I’ll have no choice but to go for Clinton.  Trump will bring this nation to disaster, at least, for all of us poor working folks living down on Main Street.

The candidate I’ve been supporting is Senator Bernie Sanders but in terms of delegates Clinton is far ahead of him so it looks like he is not going to be the nominee, unfortunately.  I agree with almost everything he says, not all but most, and I think he’d be a dynamic President who would actually return power to We The People to a large degree. But, there’s that old scary word associated with him….”Socialist”……and that drums up visions of Stalin and the USSR in America’s head even still after the end of the Cold War.  Fact is Sanders is a Democratic Socialist who believes in DEMOCRACY not dictatorship.  I’m not so sure I can say the same about the other two candidates because I see them as Fascists and history shows that Fascists love dictatorships.

And so here we are.  At the point of decision.  And very soon we will vote and put Trump or Clinton into the White House.  Do we make the choice of bigotry, hatred, and anger?  Or do we make the choice that is more mellow?  Will we decide to engage in the “blame game” blaming illegal immigrants for our nations woes and getting into a war with Mexico over some stupid, stupid wall?  Or do we make the other choice of forgetting the whole wall thingy and, perhaps, realize that illegals are NOT the source of our woes but the Fascist corporatist sure as hell are!

I find it ironic that all of these company owners and rich people who are so against illegal immigration are the SAME PEOPLE who HIRE illegal immigrants to do their landscaping, fix their limos, and do their laundry!  That just truly astounds me in terms of their HYPOCRISY.  They want to blame the illegals YET they are the very people who give them jobs!  The ignorance and hypocrisy in this nation is blinding!

I don’t know what our decision is going to be come November.  Trump says if he doesn’t get the nomination there will be riots in the streets.  Hey….haven’t we heard that line before?  Why we sure have!  It was back when the corporate bailouts (aka:  the Sacking of the US Treasury) happened and when they threatened Congress that if the bailouts weren’t passed there would be riots in the streets of America the very next day.  Hmmm…seems Trump is using the same line.  Wonder how much stock he owns in Goldman Sachs or AIG……just askin’.

Frankly, I don’t trust Trump at all and I don’t trust Clinton all that much either.  I think either one is going to just screw this country up even more.  But, like I said, I guess it’s going to come down to choosing the lesser of two evils. Trump the Corporatist or Clinton the Corporatist.  What a hell of a choice!  So I’m sitting back just watching it all and having some deep thoughts about the whole charade.  Sometimes it’s all rather comical but most of the time it’s frightening as hell.  Frightening because I see our country, our people sinking ever-deeper into an abyss of darkness from which very soon there will be NO ESCAPE.  What sad, sad days we live in America.  What sad, sad days…..
