I find it hilarious how people bitch and moan and complain about the government--about the Democrats and the Republicans, about the lousy President, Speaker of the House, the Senate Majority Leader, the Senate Minority leader...blah, blah, blah...like it is the end of the world and the end to our nation. The end of the world prophecy is actually very profitable for many in politics. I spent 60 years surviving the Cold War with the threat of nuclear annihilation everyday. We were sent home from school in October 1962 so we could die in our homes from nuclear war. We were told to stay indoors and do not come out. Hell, we had air-raid drills in school, as if hiding under those old wooden desks, with our coats over our heads, was going to keep us safe from thermonuclear missile strikes. It was a daily threat that was real then.
This is nothing new. North Korea????? Laughable! Learn from history. Abraham Lincoln was a forward thinking LIBERAL elected to government by a radically new, subversive political organization called the Republicans. This happened because the Second Party to the Democrats--the Whigs--were in disorder and fractured.
Guess what: Lincoln was elected, abolished slavery and we went to war over ideology, because Slave Labor kept the Southern Plantation Industry running. Without slaves, the South had no labor force. No labor force, no economy. They went to war to keep their economic prowess intact.
War, blah, blah, blah......good for business in the industrial North...blah, blah, blah...then Peace. Lincoln is assassinated and Andrew Johnson became President. He was a hardcore, corrupt, reconstructionist who wanted to undue everything Lincoln had down, especially freeing the slaves. Johnson was a hardcore Southerner and popular with Conservatives both in the North and especially in the South. Well Johnson's corruption caught up with him and Impeachment began. The House passed it, but the Senate refused to confirm Impeachment.
Sound familiar. There is nothing new under the sun, people. If a man or woman is President, it is because they are self-serving, arrogant rich assholes, regardless. No poor guy ever became president--ever!!!!! They care nothing for the poor, lower middle class and the hard working stiffs who cannot see beyond feeding their families each day. The president--this president included--offers only lip service to such souls, as all have done in the past. Presidents care for the poor, lower income and lower middle class only in regards to the votes you give them for re-election...so they always blow perfumed smoke up your ass to make you feel seen and important--but they don't give a shit.
Trump is no different than Johnson, or Nixon, or Kennedy, or Bush 1 and 2, or Obama, or Roosevelt 1 and 2, or Andrew Jackson. They are all arrogant, self-serving rich assholes!!! The sooner people understand this reality the better. In the end, it really doesn't matter who is in office as he or she is nothing more than a paper tiger anyway. The USA is run from a deeper more insidious power behind the scenes few ever get to see. Essentially, every President is a dupe for the Shadow Oligarchy running the country! But hey, believe whatever gets you through your day, right????!!!!
