Raising a Stink

They have no philosophy. They don't care about taxes. They only care about their own taxes. They don't care about liberty. They only care that they're free to do whatever they feel like doing. They don't even know what the Constitution says. They only know they want to repeal the emancipations it granted, except for their own, of course. They're not particularly concerned about earmarks or healthcare or anything else they say they are. They only want to be sure no one else gets something they might have to pay for. They don't even much care about this country. What they really want is to simply be part of the baddest gang on the planet as if it will somehow enhance their own comparative self esteem.

They don't care one whit about what they say they care about. They're simply selfish and mean. And they vote like the ignoramuses they are for any craven politician who panders to them, even grifters who are so obviously ill qualified for the office she's clearly seeking.

This is what it is in Dumbfuckistan Nation. It exists not in a place, but in their minds. They've gotten to be its citizens simply by acting in ways fostered by corporations and put forward by their wholly owned media.

And they don't even know it.








In all honesty, the situation scares me. Really. We are seeing the most extreme politicians, certainly in my lifetime. They're like rabid dogs. But worse. Dare I say, they're like the people of certain countries in Europe in the 1930s. That didn't end well. I fear this will not, either. I fear that the repubicans, as crazy as they seemed, are now the only possible moderating force, and I don't see them as being up to the task. There is unleashed on us a wave of ignorance and hate such as I don't think this country ever imagined.
