How can anybody with any sense can take seriously the ravings of the Republican candidate for the lucrative and flashy position of front-man for the oligarchy? He's a lifelong sleaze and champion of the almighty State. One expects his raddled raving head to poke out of the Alien’s chest.
The “election,” such as it is, hearkens back to 1996, when the rulers couldn’t be bothered to run a credible opponent to a highly vulnerable, overt charlatan of an incumbent, with the manner and sexual tastes of a televangelist, running instead another superannuated “war hero,” as unsightly in person as was his political record of serving Leviathan in the most persistent, and persistently self-serving, manner possible. (And if you’re excited by war-heroes, even authentic ones, as rulers, why not study some history – such as that of this man who won the Iron Cross First Class the hard way in World War I? How'd that work out?)
His rival will win the popularity contest, and frankly should – his appearance is at least not something to frighten naughty children with (and the true terror of the Republican’s face isn’t its age, it’s the overt evil and madness shining through.) Unless Israel attacks Iran, and the US’s rulers treasonously join in. Which will be the end of the election, the US, and quite possibly what we laughingly call civilization. As well as, likely, most of us.
But what’s exasperating is that his opponent is being marketed - seriously - as representing “change.” Yes: a brand shiny new wrapper for the same old maggot-writhing shit we've been fed throughout our lifetimes.
If you can't tell democracy from freedom, what you get is democracy instead of freedom.
We may term this the American Lesson.
