Considering a Hillary vs. Donald Election Choice
« on: February 24, 2016, 08:19:01 AM »
I think right now, Sanders, for all his flaws, is head and shoulders better than any other POTUS candidate still walking. I don't like socialism, but I'd take Leon Trotsky before I'd vote for Cruz. And Rubio is just a Hillary in a dark suit. He'd chew gum off the sidewalk to get the nomination, but it doesn't look good for him at this point.

I'm a realist. As of now, it looks very much like a Clinton versus Trump race. Things could change. Just last week some poor guy was hit by a meteorite. But barring meteorite strikes , I think were headed there.

So I have to consider which clown would be the absolute worst choice, and I just don't know. Hillary is a vote for Lady Macbeth. She is power mad, militarily inclined, and completely corrupt.

As opposed to The Donald, who gives every appearance of being a megalomaniac, fairly naive, full of simplistic "solutions" like building the Great Wall ( did anybody point out it didn't work for China when they tried that?), and torturing terrorists.

It doesn't look good.

I do hereby predict that Cruz will win the Texas Republican primary,proving once again that Texas voters will support anybody who promises to cut taxes and pretends to pray to the Anglo Jesus. (I wonder if Texans are even aware he's abandoned his responsibility to be their Senator, for the moment.)

I predict Hillary will get the Democratic nod, because....well, we don't cotton to no communists nor Yankees, neither one.

Anybody notice Cruz and Rubio are exactly the same on one issue?....Cuba. It's because their parents both made them promise, when they were little boys, to get their land back if they ever became President. I wonder how many people outside of Florida really give two shits about Cuba. But Cuban-Americans are all Republican, because the socialists didn't emigrate.

I remember when Jimmy was elected, and he was good Christian folk, by all estimates, an honest good man, hard to find in this world. And a complete total walking clusterfuck idiot as President.

Makes me wonder if we don't take an egomaniac, win win win deal deal deal intellectually questionable but obviously tuned in with the electorate loudmouth, and turn him loose on the governing structure, to watch what happens. Do the bureaucrats corral him? Does he conquer the bureaucrats?

Hitlary is a non-starter, while we might not like Trump's character, he has some, Hitlary is as spineless as her husband, moreso even, can be counted on to not give a shit, ever, as this is just the path to more speaking fees and seats on boards of directors, nothing matters to her but her. The Presidency is just some chore to endure, to get a pay raise in her real career. Trump  at least seems to want to be popular, as poor as that is as a guiding concept, it is one. She just wants to get it over with as  stepping stone. Trump might actually feel bad, after his Presidency, if he wasn't able to make more people happy about him, than not.

A pretty damn poor excuse for why one person ought to be Prez over another, but when these two are what you are given...

These exact thoughts will be running through a lot of heads on election day, I'm afraid.

I've voted in worse elections. David Duke vs Edwards in Louisiana being the one that jumps to mind. Had a bumper sticker on my truck, "Vote for the Crook, It's Important"
