Volume Six, Chapter Four: “Undecided” Voters and the 2016 Election- Random Thoughts

you-can-have-em

You can have ’em. Neither got my ballot, but I don’t mind betting on the underdog…

 

I’m making this last post before the 2016 Election a Random Thoughts edition. I’m SO over it, and have a ton of stuff going on personally. I’ll cover that in the year-end post.

I have never, ever longed for an election to be done as I have with this one. It’s the most desperate, negative, and outright contrived campaign season I’ve ever seen.

The GOP candidate is absolutely right that this election is rigged. And his ascendancy to main super-villain is the clearest example of that.

The DNC candidate had to have said super-villain as an antagonist, but SHE’S her own toughest opponent.

The last 16 months have had an obvious story line in play. The woman is supposed to slay the evil man-dragon. What if America breaks character, and the dragon wins?

The DNC has their woman, and the GOP has their loose-cannon pop culture star. Together, they’ve been in the public eye for over 60 years, and have the baggage to prove it.

Are the days of slowly building candidates into national winners over? It worked as recently as eight years ago.

Are people all over the Internet praising their candidates because they actually like them, or because they want to drag others down with them as they make bad choices?

And why is it that most of the defense of one candidate consists of tearing down the other?

Are “undecided” voters actually such, or are they, as is so often the case this time, just too ashamed to admit who they like?

And finally… Who’s going to be the next great bad guy in 2020? Mike Rowe? Caitlyn Jenner? Jake from State Farm?

Well… go on and vote. Enjoy. And by the way, we all know the narrative demands the woman win, but just for the hell of it, I’m putting money on the orangeman. Any takers?

  1. Excellent commentary Douglas. I’m with orange. I’m voting Against The Establishment both on the left and the right. Donald Trump is highly flawed. But I’m hoping he’s the first in a long line of newcomers to throw the bums out. If America doesn’t start paying attention to all of this we are never going to resolve all of our major problems facing our nation and our world today. The bottom line with Hillary is that she has lined her own pockets by using public office as a vehicle to riches. That is not its intention. To watch the media so prop her up when she is nothing much worth looking at in terms of personal accomplishment and the degradation of Donald Trump far beyond his actual words or actions tells me that we have crossed the line into a new era in the United States of America. Propaganda is King. The question we have to ask ourselves is how do we survive in a climate of corporate owned status as the newly-minted slaves of the elite?
