    Troll Presidential Candidates

    ************************************************** ****
    Troll Presidential Candidates:

    Conservative Hillary is Dem; Progressive Trump is Rep; Really? Give us a break!

    Wow! What a wacky lineup!

    On the "LIBERAL" side, we have a long-time establishment politician who has supported just about everything that her followers oppose. The list is too long to list here, but you all know it. It includes war, corporate bailouts, special interests, terrorism and anti-terrorism of various sorts, pay-to-play political corruption... all the things that "LIBERALS" are supposed to be against.

    On the "CONSERVATIVE" side, we have a long-time liberal donor who has supported just about everything that his followers oppose. The list is too long to list here, but you can find it with a little research. It includes special favors for large corporations (his), government land grabs (eminent domain seizures), trade wars and restrictions (as long as it doesn't impact him and his friends), and who knows what else (since what he says changes from soundbite to soundbite).

    If either were on a forum acting that way, they would immediately be called out for being a troll. But, because they have big money and big connections and huge special interest groups, they are each the hero of their respective movements.

    It seems like sometime in the past some comedian (maybe Woody Allen) came up with this idea and pitched it as a "totally hilarious movie idea..." and the Hollywood producers turned it down as just too ridiculous to be credible with their audiences. Then some political activist got ahold of it and said, "just because it's too bizarre for a movie doesn't mean the voting public won't eat it up!"

    So, we have Hillary Trump, the movie, presented to us as if it were real life.

    Not Sorry Folks, but I'm not that gullible.

    I refuse to let such silliness cause me to go around flapping that "the sky is falling".

    Whoever wins, it will be a sad but hilarious time for America.

    I expect to have a lot of laughs over their antics, both during the election and afterwards.

    If the winner doesn't start a nuclear war or other major catastrophe, I can say, "see the sky didn't fall". If they do something really horrible (which seems quite likely for either of them) I can say, "don't blame me, I don't support that system".

    Of course bad things will result from either of them being elected. The main difference I see is that those who vote for either are enablers to the system and thereby share responsibility in the outcome, whatever it is, while those who don't vote, are not responsible for whatever happens.

    Sure, some people think that "you're not responsible..." is a put-down. It may be, depending on the circumstances. "You're not responsible for taking care of yourself..." is definitely not good (except to those who want to control you by taking care of you). "You're not responsible for this crime..." is definitely good.

    Voting is taking responsibility for the crimes of the winners and the whole political system.

    I am happy to be responsible for myself and my family. I refuse to take responsibility for a political system that is out of control and ruled by lunatics.

    If you disagree feel free to vote. It's your conscience.

    Was it Bill Clinton who said America had to begin preparing themselves for the time theyre not in charge anymore?
    We are in for interesting times.
    I predict another world war before 2030. Another deep depression. And a mentality of order through chaos.

    But why would you go out of your way to tell people NOT to vote.
    Thats a little weird, equivalent to our compulsary system.

    So then, for you, the answer is to just crawl into a hole and wait for things to fall in on you, then blame all the other people.

    Actually, my answer is to not get perturbed, stay above the fray, refuse to be part of the problem, work on real solutions, and educate.

    The first step towards getting people to think about alternative solutions is to first dispell the myth that what they are doing is solving the problems. That's the main reason for Halt! Vote!

    Here's a little poem I wrote yesterday that explains my position:

    Unflappable is reasonable it's the only way for me
    To greet each trivial issue with blissful apathy
    To live each day the considerate way
    Content to stay above the fray
    Halt! Vote!

    And have fun laughing at all the clowns...

    Wow! What an AWESOME concept! Thank You!

    Did you come up with that, or did you hear it somewhere?

    That is soooo meaningful! Omigosh, I can't believe that anybody could be so deep thinking!

    Really, you must be in tune with some deep philosophy to bring out such relevant concepts. Are you in tune with The Buhdda or Nostradamus or the Dahli Llama?

    Wow! Such revelations deserved deep genuflections. We are in awe.
