I really tried to be fair-minded to the Republicans this year even when I disagree on certain issues. No party candidate is perfect and I like being pragmatic in my politics. I like playing devil’s advocate too which drives my wife nuts. After all, Hillary Clinton has plenty of charges against her which are valid concerns. I don’t care what excuses The Left comes up with, the email scandal shows gross negligence to the point where I’m thinking she did get a pass by the FBI. But she IS the lesser of two evils even with her scandals and faults. It’s time to face that reality. And Republican Party supporters of Trump can’t be taken seriously when reasonable candidates like Marco Rubio and John Kasich were tossed aside for this xenophobic, intellectually challenged ass clown.
But last night, the third debate, Jesus Christ what an embarrassment! To not say he will recognize the outcome of our election? He’ll keep us in suspense? Chris Wallace made it clear there is a tradition in The United States of a peaceful transition of power, and for good reason. We don’t want our country in a civil war over a candidate similar to a third world country! Recognizing our president is not the same thing as agreeing with our president, or do we not understand that?
Now Trump supporters and some Republican apologists are equivocating what Trump said to what happened with Al Gore versus Bush. As if that makes it right! I don’t know if Al Gore gave the best response when dealing with ballot counting and taking back his concession until The Supreme Court weighed in, but I never heard him say in a debate that he would keep us in suspense regarding recognition of the winner after the outcome was decided?! And he did concede in the end. The comparison is also quite different than saying you will keep the American public in suspense about recognizing our new president and a 2000 election that wasn’t finished yet because Florida started a recount–which meant that Gore had conceded too soon (more like a comedy of errors). But again! Even if Gore was wrong, why does that make Trump right? It doesn’t. It’s like when you were a kid and got caught cheating on a math test, but you’re not guilty because other kids did it too.
What do you think is going to happen when Hillary wins (which is Trump’s fault, by the way). He’s not going to concede anything. He’s going to whine like a bitch and claim the system is rigged. If Trump for some amazing reason does win, is the system rigged against Hillary? Of course, the system wasn’t rigged when he insulted Mitt Romney’s campaign run. He blamed Romney for allowing Obama back into office. The system is only rigged if he loses.
Here’s a truth about the world: everything is rigged! Donald Trump was born into a family with money and was given a million or more to start a business. That means his success was rigged compared to those of us who never had that chance. Take responsibility for your lost election, Mr. Trump. You’re running against a weak candidate, one of the most controversial and divisive candidates you could have wished for, and you’re losing. You are responsible for pushing aside qualified Republicans who could have beaten Hillary and you may even be responsible for The Republicans losing the majority in the House and Senate.
My driving point here though is actually aimed at The Left and Bernie Sanders supporters who tried to shut Donald up by invading his rallies and, in one instance, stopping a rally because they were near to inciting a riot. Let ass clowns speak! Free speech works! The same goes for rogue Hillary supporters who wanted to be punched in the face to get on the news. It wasn’t necessary (and it was a shitty thing to do).
Donald Trump is sinking his own campaign. Every week he says something stupid. He won’t shut up. And if you can get him to quiet down or avoid Twitter or verbal retaliation, his numbers go up. And yet, the far left was proud of harassing and preventing his supporters from going to his rallies and proud of interrupting rallies and stopping rallies which only made Trump appear to be more heroic to his followers and caused sympathy amongst undecided voters. Use free speech against free speech; hold signs, have debates on campus, but shutting down speech does not work. When an ass clown rambles on about banning all Muslims, deporting millions, groping pussy as locker room talk and being selective about which woman he would like to sexually assault, stand aside. This idiot is not going to survive if he keeps talking.
Maybe the lesson will be learned next time. I don’t think there will ever be a candidate like Trump again, however, he has set a precedent so who knows.
And finally, Mike Pence…fucking Christian hypocrite. I guess he’s getting his hands dirty defending his running mate. He’s yet another reason why I can’t take any politician seriously that says they’re Christian. It means nothing. Politics trumps moral values. You can disown Hillary too, but I never thought she literally believed in The Bible anyways, more of a social gospel advocate which is what Christianity means to a large percentage of believers these days.
As you might be able to tell, I’m not too impressed by this year’s candidates. I will say it’s been entertaining!
