Tyrant-in-Chief?

Okay, I don’t want to declare my undying support for anyone at this point. I don’t see anyone for whom I will likely declare my undying support. I’m sitting here every day watching  people who should know better go slowly insane. I cannot fathom how one could possibly be actually enthusiastic about any of the candidates, especially the ones getting the most vocal support.

Really? You really think…that one..is going to set things right? Let me get this out of the way now.

Okay, the only reason anyone is excited about Bernie Sanders is that Hillary is unthinkable. He’s standing on a mountain of desperation.

Bernie Sanders is the Left’s Donald Trump.

Socialism is a very, very, very bad thing. It will be even worse when we finally do it right.

The U.S. is a representative republic, a democracy. That’s just about the opposite of a socialist paradise. The extent to which our democracy is failing is the direct result and complete fault of the socialist yeast which has been added to our democratic dough. Socialism is the problem in America already, and it’s about to take us down for good.

Bernie Sanders is a full-on socialist running as a Democrat. Donald Trump is a dedicated Democrat running as a Republican. Otherwise the appeal of both seems to be the same.

Donald Trump is a clown.

Trump can say anything he likes because he has a lot of money. He is the CEO, boss, owner, whatever, emperor over his business universe.  There is no reason in his world for him to be diplomatic, other-centered, or to particularly care about anything but his money interests and his unbridled vanity.

There are no negative consequences for him when he acts like an unmoored cannon, an idiot, or a sociopath. He has nothing to lose as long as he is the only person for which he is responsible. You find this refreshing? Is he really speaking for you?

If he becomes our president, he will not be an emperor, a boss, a CEO. He will not be expected to be an autocrat. He will be subject to checks and balances. He will not be all-powerful.  How do you think he’ll transition?  Well?

Haven’t we learned yet?  One narcissistic self-involved diva megalomaniacal tyrant is enough.

There will be a lot to lose when he acts like Trump. He will need to act responsibly on behalf of all of us, and to be mindful of the effect he has, as the leader of the free world, on world politics.

Please, think. You should worry that you get such a big kick out of that guy (whichever guy) telling it like it is, and not giving a crap what anybody thinks about it. Which is apparently the most desirable qualification for presidential candidates today.

You are not going to be voting for Most Popular. Or Token. Or One of Us. Or the Guy Who Will Stick it to Those Jerks.

    ” Haven’t we learned yet? One narcissistic self-involved diva megalomaniacal tyrant is enough.” Exactly! I couldnt agree more with you about Trump. And Sanders? How is it we’ve come to this place in America where a Socialist is running President? God help us!

      I think (without checking my history…) we’ve had socialists try before, as in your face socialists, but it couldn’t really succeed here for obvious reasons. Now, sad to say, those reasons seem to escape too many. Yes, God help us!
      Thanks, and thanks for the follow!

    You are probably right on all counts, but Anybody would be better than who is in the White House at the moment; hard to imagine how it could be any worse…

    People gotta have their hollywood, but thank God, every so often a good film comes along.

      I don’t want to even try to weigh the difference between disaster by Obama and Dissolution by ?…and Anybody is necessarily going to be in the White House anyway unless the current occupant pulls some serious crap.

      Still waiting for that good film. Watching candidates for hopeful signs turns out to look more like an invasion of the body snatchers.

    Yes – but feeling disgusted and desperate one thinks “give the other clown a shot at the Presidency – it can’t be worse than what we have.”

    Still – I share your sentiments.

      But we’ve come so far from what we were designed to be by our founders when we’re deciding which clown will do the least damage. It’s just not responsible on our part to settle for that. IMHO
