'Twas the night before the debate, and........ah fuck it, push the button!!
I don't know about you folks, but I am seriously fucking pissed off. I'm so pissed off that I don't even know where to begin. Where do you begin in a shitshow of the caliber of this election? It's so jacked that even I (a staunch "I hate politics and refuse to speak of them" guy) find myself unable to stay quiet.
I've felt dumbfounded for the last few months by all of this. How did a buffoon like Trump ever get the nod? Why is Hillary even allowed to run? When does the hypocrisy stop? That's the thing that keeps overwhelming me about it all: the sheer balls-out, intelligence insulting hypocrisy of the whole damn show.
I'm not going to sit here and pretend (to anyone who cares to read this) that I am all polished up and super knowledgeable when it comes to platform particulars and the like. We live in a day and age where social media and the insanely biased mainstream media has made it virtually impossible to know truth from bullshit anymore anyways. Everyone has an agenda- it's human nature. I get it. But if your agenda of social media justice has been to constantly post your one-sided "Trump is a pig" and "Hillary is a killer" shit then you can bet you have already been unfollowed and I'm not seeing it. I've got enough stupidity and injustice in my day without trying to think about how fucked we all, as Americans, are on 24/7 basis.
As a man who has grown up Conservative I am appalled by Donald Trump. He's a first-rate jackass. Surprised? You shouldn't be. Anyone with that much money and influence is going to be (at best) completely out of touch with reality. Trump is a greedy, sleazy, hideously self serving individual who probably thinks he's God. The man is a living, breathing caricature of what the world sees a typical American billionaire and business tycoon as.
I've never cared for Hillary and probably never will. She's your typical politician who is married to a politician who puts Trump to shame in the sleaze and greed departments. I find it uproariously funny that Trump's remarks about women bother her considering she fucks Bill Clinton. SHE FUCKS BILL CLINTON!! We're talking about the man who made White House Money Shots a part of the everyday parlance. Ever heard the expression "Where there's smoke, there's fire?"?? Your husband has harassed/fondled/possibly raped his fair share over the years. But Trump offends you? Does your hypocrisy know no bounds??
And with all of the scandals littering the Clinton resume the one that kills me is Benghazi. Roll your liberal eyes (if that's who you are.....I love you anyways ha ha), but that bitch got good men killled in a situation where they didn't have to be and then lied about it. She did this while acting as the Secretary of State!! It's criminally negligent at best and treasonous at worst. My mind always goes back to Benghazi when I think of Hillary, but there's so much more to dislike about this woman.
I hate to say it. I really do. It burns me up to have to say it because I am a rational, intelligent, reasonably respectful person who cares about others (sometimes too much). I will vote with my heart AND my head. I will pay close attention to "the undercard", so to speak. Maybe the real change can be made at the Congressional or State level. God, I hope so. Our choices for the top office in the land are equally bad.
But, I have to say it. I hate it even more because it's become such a popular internet meme, but sometimes the simple statements are the best. So here goes:
I remain more bothered by what Hillary Clinton has done then what Donald Trump has said.
Will I feel awful going into that booth and giving my vote to that gigantic asshat wearing douche canoe? Probably. I'm almost sure of it. However, there's a huge plus in that it will cancel out a vote for the Wicked Witch of the Left. That's a small consolation prize.
Still, I'm so very fucking pissed off about this. If this is the best that we could do then maybe that means God is just getting ready to push the button anyways. At the very least it means that He or She has got one phenomenally fucked up sense of humor.
I can appreciate that.
