Hark you say. What the heck is a Canuck doing weighing into US politics, but this Canuck has lived and gone to school in the US. And as most Canadians know when the US passes Gas we know what it had for dinner.
This election has turned into a nasty bit of business.
The Republican (akin to Canada’s Conservatives with more guns) race has veered way past Tea Party time in many ways.
Who owns front runner Donald Trump? Who knows? It probably though isn’t the same people (Koch Bros. & friends) who push the Tea Party agenda. With Ted Cruz fading hard Mr. Trump literally has the ticket sewn up.
While many have compared his campaign and himself to Hitler, and the Nazis it really and simply been a refinement of the strangeness of what politics have turned into.
In a society where rarely people are held accountable facts go out the window. (see the last banking scandal and bailouts) It doesn’t really matter what any politician actually says or does any longer, but what twitter streams of their actions.
It’s a scary, frightening, and a cannibalistic slope that ultimately will lead to situations that again, people will not be held accountable for.
They say you get the government you deserve, and in this case it looks like years of strangeness in the land of Republicans is coming home to roost.
As bad a candidate as Mr. Trump may or may not be we know that Democratic front runner Hilary Clinton is worse.
Ms Clinton is not her husband. She’s essentially a corporate shill who if she gains the nomination will guarantee a President Trump. While Vermonter Bernie Sanders is behind her right now, if he were to win the nom he clearly would beat Trump in an election.
Because deep down people are ugly and rarely intelligent. We vote with the same sophistication we swallow advertising, and social media guidance as scary as that sounds.
It’s not really a right or left race. It’s not about Socialism, Conservatism. It’s not even about money at the end of the day. It’s a control battle that the American public is struggling with.
That struggle is rooted in the frustration and having to live from cheque to cheque as far too many in what should be the World’s richest country. Some of the 99% are actually frustrated enough to want to change the status quo.
From guns, to foreign wars, racism, and a cultural identity that seems lost; this election will be a defining moment for the United States more than just about any other since its own Civil War.
America and the World are in crisis and American’s will decide who best will be elected to navigate essentially all of our futures.
