Now I wonder whether it was all another Long Con. The cynic in me (I am a journalist) begins to wonder whether, indeed, it was rigged.
The oligarchy that runs everything. Not just the government, which is merely its storefront.
How else to explain Trump’s conversion to stumblebum Republican? His sudden cop-sucking and flag-humping and even (yes) his Bible beating? That plus the Tapes may result in a sweep for her.
Which would enable her to claim a mandate.
This would have been inconceivable without Trump. She might have won against any of the other Goldman Sachs/Kellog Root Brown/GE front men. But not by a landslide. That is now very conceivable.
If you think things are bad now, wait.
Imagine a Hillary unchained. The firebomber of Waco able to say “the people” tsunami’d her into office to create the New America she has been working toward all her life. Unlike Bill, who is basically a libertine, who just wants serial blowjobs both literal and metaphorical – to be the center of attention, worshipped – Hillary wants to be obeyed.
Some may recall when she was merely a frustrated dragon lady, back in the ’90s – when Slick Bill gave her portfolio to create Hillarycare. Among other things, had this business become law, it would have become a criminal offense to pay for medical treatment on a fee-for-service basis.
Like The Chimp (another political sociopath) she enjoys hurting people.
The woman is filled with hate – and lusts for power.
Donald may just have given it to her, too.
Why did he stop talking coherently? Let alone talking about ending the endless wars? What happened to getting rid of – not replacing – Obamacare?
Instead, he brings up Bill’s ancient blowjobs. Barry’s half brother.
He flushed himself.
Became what he claimed to be a departure from. If Trump talked the way he talks now six months ago, there would be some other Republican tool at the top of the ticket. The tool would lose, too – but at least we wouldn’t have been Charlie Brown’d again.
We’d have been better off with Mittens redux or maybe the real-life Tony Soprano from New Jersey.
The only hope now is that a majority of the country is so disgusted by him and them (Republicans) and filled with dread about her that they stay home and vote for neither.
If there is a record low turnout, then neither of these two cretins (or the lesser one, Gary Johnson) could plausibly claim to possess a mandate. Whatever vile “plans” they have for us would be regarded as illegitimate on the face of it.
We’d still be ruled, but less effectively. It would force them – all of them – to take off the Happy Mask of “democracy” and reveal themselves for who and what they are. We are talking late Soviet ossified apparatchiks waving woodenly from atop Lenin’s tomb. No one’s fooled.
And that’s the best we can hope for, I think….
PS: There’s a little more than 1 week left in the month – the first full month after EPautos’ first major redesign since the site was launched ten years ago – but we’re only about 60 percent of the way to making it into the green for the month. We need to make up about 40 percent in the next seven days.
This will help cover not just the usual fixed costs – the server/hosting – but also the new costs (Ben, the computer guy I paid to make all the changes/updates).
We’ve been working hard to make the site better – easier to use (especially for those of you who access it via your phone) as well as comprehensive. I think most of you have been pleased with the changes.
But donations are down – which is worrisome.
You guys know (I hope) how much I dislike making these appeals – but they are a necessary fact of life because independent media outlets depend almost entirely on reader financial support to keep the wheels turning.
So, please – if you like EPautos and want to keep these wheels turning – consider supporting the site. We can’t do it without you.
