Clinton and Trump dominate. Fuck that. I’m about to vote for Jill Stein’s Green Party ass. I was listening to NPR and Russell Brand talk about the election and how in the history of American politics, the richest, most heavily funded campaign wins out. Every. Single. Time. So we could technically skip all the bullshit of the election process and just award the position of president to the richest party. It’s proof the system is rigged. It has nothing to do with who actually deserves the “crown” or who is the best fit for the country or who the democracy cast their vote for. That’s BS. Anyone who believes that we have some sort of electoral system needs to just watch what’s going on. A two-party system that awards media attention and superdelegates to the richest candidate…tell me that’s not some type of sanctimonious puppet show. Read more ›
The Republican debates are not only a circus side show, they’re a breeding ground for inequality. I wanted to sum up some of the most interesting moments so far from the 2016 GOP debates in this blog post, so here you are:
Another classy move from our favorite buffoon. Seriously, someone put us out of our misery, please and throw this guy off his giant tower. Don’t worry, I’m not promoting murder. The wig will act as a parachute and hopefully the fall will just break his knees. That would be nice, wouldn’t it?
Anyway, if you haven’t followed the campaign or if you don’t exist on social media, then let me explain what this was. Donald Trump ACTUALLY made dick jokes during the debate. The fact that the Republican frontrunner is defending his penis size on an international platform makes me fired-up angry. Here’s the dialogue:
Rubio: Look at those hands, are they small hands?
This post may come across as a little defensive. And the reason for that is that I am sick of having to explain the difference between a Communist and a Socialist. I’m sick of people assuming I’m on welfare just because I sport a Bernie Sanders sticker.
I work 50 hours a week—at least. And I still barely crack 40,000 a year in salary. Yes, I hold a 4-year degree. I am working on my Master’s Degree—slowly, but it’s happening, people. Yet, I’m working 3 jobs to take care of myself. My main job doesn’t even pay me what Bernie wants minimum wage to be. My CEO makes MILLIONS of dollars a year, takes half the year off to travel and do her thing. Yet, I’m struggling. And I’m just as smart, just as hard working, just not as privileged. How is that a fair system? Fact is, it’s not.
I can show you from the damn BIBLE why Bernie is the best candidate. Here’s a few reasons why I support Bernie Sanders for President of the United States of America:
Before I delve in, I want us to define a few terms.
Democratic Socialist: Not a socialist. Not a communist. Someone who believes in democracy (government elected by eligible citizens) and social programs (policemen, roads, army, firemen).
Closed Primary: An election where the candidates are chosen to run in a general election, but only voters registered for a specific party can vote for that party. For example, only Republicans can vote Republican. Only Democrats can vote Democrat. Unaffiliated voters (like independents) are not allowed to participate. Read more ›
The New York Times recently published a story about Donald Trump, the Republican frontrunner for this year’s 2016 presidential election. What a shame that someone like this is taken seriously by ANYBODY. The Times called Trump “erratic, inconsistent, unprincipled, possessing crudity and cruelty”. I think that’s putting it lightly. He’s an arrogant, rich, pompous, bloated, tomato asshole with sexist and racist agendas. A despicable human being and the biggest incentive Americans have for moving to Canada to date. Don’t get me wrong, I have voted Republican more than I have voted Democrat. Surprising, right since I’m voting for Sanders 100% this year? I want to make a case against voting for Trump. I don’t care who else you vote for, Cruz, Kasich, Hillary or—glory to God—Bernie Sanders. Just please, don’t stoop to this level of debauchery and dissipation by voting for this over-tanned bigot. Here’s three reasons I don’t think Donald Trump makes a suitable person for this earth—let alone a candidate for president for the greatest nation on earth: Read more ›
Corporate media (that I usually support because of their liberal agenda, but now they’ve been purchased in the name of freedom of the press) will not talk about it; so I will.
Here’s my response to the common reasons why people do not support Sanders. They say:
When Bernie says FREE, it’s not really FREE.
That’s correct. It’s not free. The programs Bernie is promoting are democratic socialist programs, like our local Columbus fire departments, roads, police force, and military. Free in this case means paid for by public funding as an investment in the future of our country. Well-educated, healthy, happy people hold higher-paying jobs, which generate more taxes that pay for these programs in turn. It’s like a circle. Give them education, give them healthcare, give them a break, they produce. The jobs that are created fuel money back into the economy and the top 1% of the country, people like Donald Motherfucking Take-A-Dump-Trump, are the ones who will be heavily taxed. Read more ›
