So I will be taking a break from writing The Origin of Loss, probably for a week or so. So far it’s been fun writing, but I feel I just need to step away from it for a bit. However, if you want to read the installments so far (don’t know why you would want to) you can head on over here: The Origin of Loss.
Anywho, I still have some other projects lined-up that I may work on some more this week. But, I feel like writing about something that has just been tugging at me lately. And, yes, it has to do with politics, again (I’m so sorry.) So, you may or may not have read some garbage I wrote last week which was mainly a response to another person’s post. Basically, while I’m not a big fan of Sanders it’s clear that, out of all of the candidates, he is the best one for the US. However, it looks like he’s probably not going to get the nomination. So that means it’s likely going to be Joe Biden up against Donald Trump. Two guys most people don’t like who are incompetent and don’t have the country’s interest in minds. These are the two guys were are going to be stuck choosing between. And it seems like this happens a lot. This is because of our convoluted electoral system and an electorate that is driven by fear and control rather than voting for who they think is right to do the job. It’s a little disheartening, but not surprising.
The reason I bring this up is because we’re already hearing demands to “Vote Blue, No Matter Who” and “A Vote for Sanders is a Vote for Trump.” basically an admittance that Biden sucks and that we just have to deal with it. But, I understand if someone wants to vote Biden because they would rather have him than Trump. I do too. However, Biden isn’t going to be that much better than Trump. And the whole idea of voting for the “lesser evil” has been a pox. It’s one of the major reasons why we are here. People have been voting for the “lesser evil” forever and guess what? Trump still won. It really makes you think. It makes you wonder if, maybe, we should stop doing the same thing every god damn time. And I think a lot of voters realize this and either don’t care, or are riddled with fear.
And you’re going to see a lot of justification and excuse-making in favor of Biden. Bernie Sanders is a narcissist and shouter similar to Trump. But Biden? “Oh, he’s just a kindly old man who wants things to return to the good ol’ days.” Yet, it is Biden, not Sanders, who has literally threatened people who have confronted him. But, if you still think he’s a nice old guy, ask Anita Hill.
Biden and Trump. Guys who have no real vision. They just want control, damn everyone else. It really shows that, beneath the surface, both Republicans and Democrats are pretty much the same. One might be “slightly” better than the other, but you’re still voting for “evil,” you are still voting for the party that is throwing support behind someone who has supported the Iraq War and cuts to Social Security.
“Hey, it’s not great, but suck it up, babies! If you don’t vote for Biden, Trump wins!” The fact that Democrats literally threaten you to vote for their guy really shows their true colors. It really shows that they do not care what you want. I think it’s time that the Democratic Party is punished. Because this can’t keep going on. Otherwise, we are going to keep getting guys like Biden and Trump, and the country is going to keep going in the same direction that shits on the poor and middle class while benefiting the rich. Democrats aren’t entitled to our votes. They have to earn them. “But Trump is going to keep harming people!” And guess what? Biden will too if he’s elected! Do you honestly think he will help fix-up the immigration process, end the War on Drugs, support universal healthcare, and cease drone-strikes? We need long-term solutions. We need to change the system, and Biden is as much part of that system as Trump is.
Welp. Glad I got that out of the way. I know there are people who are going to disagree with me, and that’s fine. It’s just strange that people claim to be sick and tired, yet still vote for the types of people responsible for the status quo. Good memes.
So anyway, as mentioned before, taking a short break writing The Origin of Loss and may start posting the start of another series. And I probably won’t post more political stuff. I’ve mentioned previously that I would start writing stuff related to writing and art, and I might still, but any sort of post or essay I start turns about pretty crappy. But, we will see. Stay tuned. Yay.
