The following post is for an American audience only; all others will think I’m stupid for posting this aimed at only Americans

 

 

I need to clarify after my recent post in which I said I preferred the Biden wing of the democratic party. That’s not to say him per-say, but someone who’s cut from the same centrist cloth as him. He’s got his flaws and drawbacks like most of the others do, and therein lies my conundrum; there IS no perfect candidate, in my opinion. My personal preference is Mayor Pete, but he won’t appeal to some others because he’s gay. I wish we’d have moved beyond that being a dis-qualifier, but the election of our first black president caused such hateful vitriol, and a backlash that gave rise to the worst of humanity in a Piggly-Wiggly suit, Trump.

In my opinion, too much radical change scares some people. Personally, I’m all for most of the far-left agenda, and would like to see almost all of it come to pass, but feel it’s unrealistic to more conservative voters. How is imposing our will on them any different than them imposing theirs on us? Slow and steady change is the preferred approach, in my opinion. But no matter who wins the democratic nomination, I think, other than the right-leaning voters, we can all agree that the most important imperative is beating Trump’s ass come November. If he’s reelected, God help us, everyone.

    This is just as relevant to us in other countries too. Not only is the US

    globally important, but so many other places are following suit.

    A very well-written piece, Mike.

    Hi, Mike

    You seem to hate some of those people who run our lives as much as I do. I have no idea why someone who is not rich and or famous can’t get up there.

    I love that… “worst of humanity in a Piggly-Wiggly suit, Trump.” line.

    Nothing to change or correct from where I sit. Well done.

    PD

      Trump’s a complete train wreck, not only as president, but as a human being

        I agree, so, it Moron Morrison here. Did you know that our beloved Emergency services Minister went on 2 weeks holiday while the bushfires were burning Australia down? The heartless rat!

    Hello Mike Stevens

    Please excuse my English because I am a Filipino and still learning to talk and write it good.

    I like your story here and for me even if I’m not a American I agree with you. We have many of our own troubles here to with politics and congressmen. Yes for me it is scary thing.

    Very good writing Sir and thank you

    Ambot
