America Has Gone CRAZY

(Yes, I took this picture.)
(All you need to see every day is 3 giant “TRUMP” signs (there is one more sign on your way down the road.) Personally I would like to camp out near the sign and burn the sign, maybe with a nice bag of marshmallows to roast . :p This is the grand poo bah of signs.) DAMMIT!
I am fed up with American politics.

THESE days people are just throwing up their hands and saying “oh well, I’ll just vote for Trump, or just voting for Hillary”... or they'll say, if you're not voting for Hillary, you're voting for Trump.

People are getting to the point of being like playground bullies.

This election people are becoming tyrannical. Trying to force people to vote for Hillary... or say its "My" fault if we get what we get? Bullshit! Its not my fault that we are where we are.

 We are told we have the choice between (I add this) a fascist idiot and a criminal. I didn't put them there and I certainly won't condone either one of them being in the white house. And if one more person says its all my fault here I'm going to delete it. It is NOT my fault!

 Holy hell! I won't lower my standards for you, or anyone.

As my husband says: I can either vote for corruption or idiocracy.
Gee what a choice.
(As to Trump and my feelings about him- I’ll let John Oliver tell you for me- I think I’ve watched this at least 10 times- it starts out goofy and is hilarious, but near the middle gets more serious about his failed businesses and bankruptcies- this is NOT a man who should run the country. (His rampant racism and bigotry aside, not to mention the so called “Mexican wall” and deportations etc)
Do we have a choice?
WAIT, we have been TOLD we don’t have a choice.
They say (and I add this) we have a choice between a tantrum induced toddler and a corrupt politician who just happens to be a woman. (Damn it- WHY can’t we get a good woman!!! (Elizabeth Warren- I’m talking to you, and in the same breath, I’m disappointed in you too.

Jill Stein is looking better and better to me, I’ll get to that later)  
I just don’t know how this can be fixed.
There is too much big money, and honestly, too much cheating involved. This game is fixed.
And the American people are stuck in the middle watching their daytime soaps and evening comedies, distracted, with their pants down, if you get my drift.
How else did a clown get in here???
When Washington State had their caucus, I told myself I would go to vote for Bernie and then not get involved.
I voted and then like a kid addicted to “whack a mole” I got whacked myself.
I got talked into being a delegate AGAIN.
WHACK!
I should have learned the first time with Ron Paul.
I thought, “maybe” this will be different then when I was a Ron Paul Delegate with the Republicans.
Where I was screamed at by some “Christian” woman about same sex marriage “ruining America.”
Where I saw a ballot box taken by cheating Republicans and another guy who tried to stop it escorted out.
Later a guy who had tried to stop the cheating had a meeting about it with the other delegates. And what was done about it? NOTHING.
I saw people who were normally decent to each other ripping each others throats out.
What’s funny is that I had moved and the old people in my Mormon ward were on one side of the convention center, and the people in the new ward on the other for Mitt Romney, and I felt suffocated as they kept congratulating themselves and throwing corny jokes my way about the “black sheep in the family”
Not only that, but at church after Sacrament meeting AT church, some Dufus decided to bawl me out for not voting for the “Mormon” (Romney coincidentally, WHO I RESEARCHED unlike those who assumed he was good BECAUSE he was Mormon) I found his ties to Monsanto stock (GMO company)
Might as well have an exorcism right then and there, right?  Slam me on the forehead and “DEMON BE GONE!!!”
I  went to state as a Delegate, but what I saw in between all of that just made me, to be honest, disgusted with it all.
When the Republicans  weren’t trying to filch you for all your money as a delegate, they were too busy patting themselves on the back congratulating themselves for all the so called "good" they did. ( let’s be honest here, the good that THEY have done for themselves and no one else.)
I spent HOURS years back with a Ron Paul delegate who spent more time than anyone else I know on the floor trying to change the corruption that is politics. He stood in line for at least an hour or two to get his point out, and then they took him down by shutting down the forum to talk right before he got to the stand. Now HE is a good guy. (Yes Mr B.- I’m talking about you!)
Yet here I am in the same boat again, playing for the other team.
I have realized I am  Green party/Independent/Libertarian leaning Democrat, if there is such a thing.
I found I flt more into the Green Party structure myself. Check this to see where you stand: http://www.gp.org/120591/the_real_difference  


I wondered if the cheating would happen with the Democrats too. Well, I didn’t have to wait long.
Enter Hillary Clinton, who I have been watching with eagle eyes for YEARS.
Damn it, I want a woman president SO bad I can taste it.
But a corrupt, war mongering, Clinton Foundation (cough cough slush fund) establishment shill instills absolutely NO confidence in me.
What she has done to Bernie, and how emails  have been leaked from the founder of Wikileaks showing that she had spies in Bernie’s camp, is just flat out disgusting.
Meanwhile, online, the conversations  make me wonder why I am there in the first place.
Example:


Heidi  I am so so sick of politics right now and yet I'm still talking about it haha


Shela  I need to go to bed and stop getting so freaked out. But I tell you if something doesn't happen soon we're going to start getting bombed like Jerusalem and is not going to be funny we're going to be crying to the Britain to save us after we fought and fought to get away from them if anybody remembers that?


Shela  I'm just going to get off of my soapbox for now. As much as I hate to say it we be better off with Hillary Clinton at this point unless someone like Colin Powell comes up out of the ashes.


Heidi  We're in  need a good strong leader I just don't know where there is one who isn't corrupt unless we're talking Bernie.


Joe  lol Bernie


Shela I actually give a rat's ass about Bernie Sanders I think he truly gives a s***.


Shela My problem is having work for all branches of the service is that the president of the United States as commander-in-chief should be the highest military ranking person. I do not believe you should be able to be a president without a military high-standing standing background.


Heidi Lol Trump


Heidi  Don't even go there Joe whoever you are


Shela Joe is good folk


Joe  where did I say trump... Bernie..dodged draft just like trump..Bernie never had real job. Do you need a pacifier? Awwww  poor little thing...


Shela  Bernie has heart. As long as I have a daughter under 18 I would dodge the draft also.

Heidi  When Bernie  was mayor he stopped hundreds of people from being displaced in their homes in Burlington when Real Estate tried to push them out.  Burlington also was the first to have 100% renewable energy because of him.  He was also called the amendment King with over 90 amendments passing working with Republicans and Democrats as nobody else had. All the information I just talked about is said (and shown) about the middle of the video when it really starts to get interesting https://youtu.be/kfqNRReOXmA

Heidi Sebastion This is a man who has just given more and more. Socialism is caring about other people... communism is more like what you're talking about above. I think you have a twisted version in your head of what it actually is or maybe you're watching too much Fox News


Joe  you are just one of those who thinks you are entitled to others money..btw how much money has bern gave away.
  
Heidi  For a guy who has a picture on your page saying "love comes naturally hate is learned" with a picture of two kids hugging you sure aren't being very nice. And you're assuming that I believe that I'm entitled to others money when you don't know me at all. I'm a 46 year old married 25 years woman. When people start calling each other names and assuming things about people telling them they need a pacifier. someone needs to grow up and get his big pants on. Someone's diaper is full of s***) :p

Shela  This might make a really good Blog. Heidi

Joe I haven't got nasty, but I can..I was being nice since was a friend's post.


Heidi Sebastion  Shela, honestly I'm cool talking to you Shel but he was extremely rude with the pacifier comments and poor little thing... just very childish comments and I'd rather not... having an adult conversation between two people who don't agree doesn't have to resort to rude comments... most times people won't change their minds no matter what... it's okay to have different opinions but resorting to comments that are inflammatory and childish are frankly a waste of my time.

Haven't gotten nasty is b******* on his side and if he can't see how childish he was and is trying to make excuses for it... all the more reason for me to not talk to him.  All the other comments he is making now are just the kind of comments of someone who's a troll and who likes to bait people... I'm done.
 Joe "I never called any name"


Heidi "awww (calling me a ) poor little thing" isn't?


I'm glad this is over in November! At least it’s over before Christmas!


I have seen people call each other names,block and delete each other on Facebook, tell me and people over and over that if we vote for anyone else than Hillary that we are voting for Donald Trump.


That frankly scares the HELL out of me.


My mother escaped Hitler's Germany (I’m serious) If Trump gets in, I’m afraid for us all.


HERE IS THE PROBLEM: . For years we have bought into the medias “IF YOU VOTE FOR ANYONE OTHER THAN THE DEMOCRATS OR REPUBLICANS, you lose.


Well here I am to burst your fucking bubble.


THATS OLD THINKING.


OLD.


From that article...


  • 42% identify as independents, 29% as Democrats, 26% as Republicans
  • Independent identification at least 40% for fifth consecutive year
  • Democrats maintain edge over GOP in party identification and leaning
IT IS NOT HOPELESS.
Get off the merry go round that is the two party system!!!
We’re just going round and round till were so dizzy we feel like throwing up.
Isn’t anybody sick of this bullshit???
O.K..


THEN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!


I looked into Jill Stein and took a quiz on who I relate to the most. Jill came in first and Bernie second. I am liking her more and more. Gary Johnson is another one to look into.

Hey, a WOMAN who is actually honest in the white house?


I think I may be changing my vote.


If we as a nation change our thinking, it may NOT be hopeless after all.


Af friend of mine on Facebook brought up a good point.
“The Republican party was once a third party, and they pushed out the Whig party.”


It is not too late. Don’t buy it. EDUCATE yourself, REALLY look into all the parties, and THEN vote.


Hell- I’ll even give you a head start.

(Click this unbiased link at the bottom to find out which candidate you are really most comparable to in ideology...I did. (Look to the right to take the test. Mine was 93% Jill Stein, Bernie Sanders(who is now gone... grrrr) then Clinton and down the line...it shows you the results too.

  1. I followed that conversation :-}. I have, for quite a few years, hoped for a woman president. But not this candidate. I hoped for someone with, strength, wisdom, and decisiveness. Nobody is perfect, but there are just too many issues of trust, motives, and honesty hanging from Hillary's charm bracelet. I want to vote, but for neither of the candidates. Each day, I see more signs of the conspiracy theory of the Rothchilds and the New World order. :-(

  4. I believe voting is a sin and is completely immoral. First of all what does one actually vote for whenever they vote for anyone? Every vote cast is a vote for the state which is just a really big gang operated on theft and violence.
    Everything the state does is bases on stealing, coveting, lying and force. None of those things are authorized by God and in fact are all forbidden according to His commandments. He never gave any people exemptions from obeying his commandments regardless of which gang they join or support. Every vote is support and approval for the works of the state. The only vote which would be moral and worth casting would be a vote to opt out, be left alone and not to try and force your neighbor to live their lives your way. Jesus would never vote.

  6. I understand what you are saying Greg, but I don't agree that it is a sin, as if by doing so a person is "sinning" by trying to help shape the world they are in, by whatever principals they believe in is a "thing" But then again your point on not forcing people to live in the way that you believe makes absolute sense and is a valid point. Too much in politics has tried to make others live a certain way, and I believe that's wrong too. With that said, it is your choice to not vote, but somebody is going to get in. It sounds a bit libertarian, and is an interesting point you make about thinking that Jesus would not vote.
