“When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Perhaps to be too practical may be madness. To surrender dreams, this may be madness… Maddest of all is to see life as it is and not as it should be,” Don Quixote, Miguel de Cervantes
I really don’t see what all this idiocy is about in our politics right now. When in this nations democracy has voting and a possible changing of the guard ever been disruptive like this?
Who really thinks that some old white dude that just served as vice president would and could create enough choas (be it financial or otherwise) to merit this kind of reaction? Who would think that a washed up TV personality could command so much (ill gotten) loyalty, respect and trust? It makes absolutely no sense to me.
Do you know there are telemarketers from other countries (primarily) who call phone numbers randomly to find dumb people to steal from. They ask stupid questions and say things that no sane person would probably believe but they do this to weed out smart people. They also heavily target elderly.
My point is…… when did people stop asking questions? When did people stop looking at the motivation behind lies and fear mongering? Why do people seem to want to believe the worst about their fellow humans and citizens? Or follow and trust people that have no real vested interest in their needs?
None of this makes any sense to me whatsoever. I mean, while I’m relatively happy the orange haired man seems to be losing this election…..
the real issue I see is the unrest and the national divide, with most people not truly understanding each other’s side. That the country is so split and that Trump managed to get all those votes despite his despicable behavior has me puzzled.
Did that half of the country not see his antics, bullying and lies over these last 4 years?
I can’t give the man a pass no matter how well the economy did during his tenure, which he didn’t create mind you. He just kept the upswing Obama started from after the housing bubble.
And how could one not consider the lies and whitewashing he has done during this pandemic?
And that the stock market keeps so strong is a clear sign to me of the real disconnect between the government backed corporate agenda and the plight of the common citizen. Which has more to do with the mass protections and safeguards we give large businesses as opposed to civilians.
Because we can’t pass a second stimulus? We can’t implement a national response to a pandemic? We can’t run a civil voting process?
I would beg each person to look within their own heart and do their duty to help their fellow citizens, especially those that are struggling the most right now. Those being left behind in this “land of opportunity”.
I still really don’t care who wins the election. I just wish people could see how they are being led to a fountain of anger, fear and hatred towards their fellow citizen and that this is the bigger problem. This is the true madness.
And I want no part of it❣️✌🏽
