In 2008 the majority of the general population of the U.S. was angry about the illegal Iraq invasion and occupation. It was a point of contention on the right just as it was on the left. So what did the Republican Party decide to run against the Democratic Party nominee? John “the Flaming Warmonger” McCain.
In 2012 people were up in arms about how an out of control financial sector deliberately destroyed our economy so they could reap the harvest of unending bailouts and rampant banking consolidation schemes. Republicans and Democrats alike lost massive amounts of their 401ks and many even lost their homes in the recession/depression brought on by the hedge-funders and banksters. So what did the Republican Party decide to run against President Peace Prize? Mitt “the Mormon Vulture Capitalist” Romney.
Here we are in 2016 and the tide has turned against the billionaire class and the undemocratic influence they have in politics. It’s a major part of Bernie’s platform, so much so, even Killary is forced to get in on the act. It’s the major theme of the Republican front-runner’s campaign as well. But what is he? A billionaire. Trying to get into politics.
Anyone notice a theme developing here?
It wasn’t that different back in 2000 and 2004. In 2000 the people, even the left, were getting sick of Slick Willy so the Dems ran his VP, a man so lacking in character and personality, that deficit became his defining trademark. And in 2004, when over half the country was singing “how great we are because we killed Saddam” along with “Let the Eagle Soar” the “We’ll Put a Boot Up Your Ass”, when we were banning the sale of French Fries because the French didn’t support our illegal invasion of Iraq, the Dems decided to put forward a candidate who famously threw his medals on the steps of congress back when he still had a soul and was a hippy peace activist.
Today we have billionaire celebrity “reality” TV star and professional wrestler Donald Trump making ready to lose an election to the presumptive nominee from the fake left, Hillary Clinton and nobody bats an eye every time he does something to disenfranchise yet another large segment of the voting population.
How many times to you have to hear Killary say “he’s not a serious candidate” before you understand that’s he’s not?
She’s been quoting an American poet the last couple of days everywhere she goes, talking about Trump. “When someone tells you who they are, you should take their word for it”
I agree completely, but with a little twist: When someone on the inside tells you what’s going on, you should take their word for it.
