What an election year



What a crazy election year. Trump is in the hot seat for they things he said about women. Never thought I'd actually see him apologize. It was just for a moment before he went on the attack again, but he did apologize. At the same time Hillary has to deal with an email release of speech transcripts she wanted to keep secret.

In my opinion we have a choice between two despicable people. I don't care who you are going to vote for and won't argue about it. Both of them are an embarrassment. Sorry, that's just how I feel. It would not hurt my feelings if both of them dropped out.

Why don't we try four years without a president? Spain has been running without a national unity government and some Spaniards think it's going better.

Maybe a small part of me is an Anarchist.

Perhaps there are an infinite number of parallel worlds where anything is possible. We just happen to be living in one of the more unlikely ones. Maybe there are worlds where voters get to choose between two really good choices. Wouldn't that be nice?

So the question is: why even vote? For me, there's nobody at the top of the ticket that I like. To counter that I'm paying careful attention to everyone else on the ballet. The President is not a dictator. They have to work with Congress. It's important to make sure we have some adult supervision in Congress for a change.

The state and local politicians can mess me up quicker than the Feds can. In these crazy times it's critical that good people get in. I don't care what party affiliation they claim as long as they can work with people for the greater good.

    1. They have been ducking their responsibilities for a long time. That has got to stop.

  2. Maybe we should better pay much better attention to who we elect for Congress.

  3. shall repeat

    no government is good government

    less government is better

    zero government is the best

    but the sheeple cannot survive without their canalbalistic owners!

    3. Probably not deep enough. Now where did I put that shovel?

  4. Voting for Hillary might be like jumping out a second storey window, but voting for Trump is staying in the apartment and burning to death. Voting for Johnson or Stein is writing a stern letter to the landlord complaining about the lack of sprinklers while you burn to death.

    1. Such wonderful choices this year. We get to pick the captain of a sinking boat.

  5. I understand your feelings, but I still feel that one will be far worse for the nation than the other. It's my grandkids that I'm concerned about; I won't be around that many more years, then I'll be going to a place where THERE ARE NO POLITICIANS! - lol (Couldn't help adding that last part!)

  6. The prospect of it all makes this place attractive.

    1. A little isolation is starting to look good.

  7. I hate talking politics, but this is the culmination of money AND corruption in both directions. With Trump, I have to trust his "handlers" will over-ride his ego.

    With Hillary, she's a ball buster and no one will be able to take charge. She's on the financial payroll to continue what Obama started, and to cross her would be equal to career suicide. She's not an idiot like Trump, but she's treacherous, and that's a LOT worse.

    1. Sad that none of our choices are good ones.

    2. Like his "handlers" have managed his campaign?

      Trump is not a guy you can steer. He's a loose cannon. And I mean that as a sailing metaphor. None of us will be safe until he goes over the side.
