Run RNC

You know, it’s tricksy. Tricksy and false. 

*** prepare for rare political rant ***

Normally I like to keep my blog on the windy side of care. Stories, events, hot menz– you know, lighter fare. But after the press coverage of the RNC this week I feel I have to at least address it. 

Because it honestly makes me sick to my stomach. 

First off, let me say that I didn’t watch more than two minutes of the convention in real time. I saw the shouting match on the first day and said, “Nope.”  And then I saw about 30 seconds of Drumpf speaking last night as I flipped the channel (honestly I thought I was just tuen BF in the news).

It was revolting. 

Same speech as a hundred times before. “We’re gonna make things better– I’m not gonna tell you ‘how’ because I have no real plan– but AMERICA!”

The rest of the RNC I saw in sound bites and small news clips. Some interview snippets on my news feed.

Equal parts sad and frightening. 

This is one half of our democratic process in action. One half of our country has devolved into fear mongering, hatred, bigotry, and zealotry. 

The best quote that I saw on my news feed was, “If you’ve ever wondered what you would have done to stop Hitler in the 1930’s– well, nows your chance.”

This has now turned into the most important election in our country’s history. The future of the supreme court hangs in the balance, as does the future of civil rights, environmental policy, election reform, the middle class, education……

It is us versus them, and we absolutely cannot let “them” win.

And something tells me this is going to be a harder fight than it should be.

Trump is a repugnant, bigoted narcissist and truly represents only the top 0.1% of America. 

But.

The republicans have spent years cultivating a base full of the uneducated, religious nut jobs, and white supremacists. They’ve also gerrymandered districts, suppressed voter rights, restricted polling places, etc.  all to sway things in their favor. 

And they have two more weapons in their arsenal:  the Green Party and the Libertarians. 

These two delusional parties thing they can somehow ramp up enough momentum in a presidential election year to propel one of their unknown candidates into the whitehouse. 

Never. Gonna. Happen. 

As dissatisfied as the average American voter is with our current choices, they aren’t going to risk everything on an unknown.  Not at the level of president.

But maybe at the level of state legislature. Maybe try that first, huh?  And not go for the whole kit and caboodle? Kay thanks, bye. 

I’m worried that the die hard Bernie Babies are going to throw away their votes on a Jill Stein and thus pave the way for Trump. 

I’m also worried there will be corruption in the voting– vote tampering or machinations to block the poor and people of color from voting.

Or another “Florida”.

These are troubling times indeed.

    Like you, I could only stomach the facebook news feeds. Watching the actual circus is far too frightening. I share your fear that Bernie supporters have become so zealous in their support of him that they’ve demonized Hillary to the point of not being able to bring themselves to vote for her. Its an incredibly important election for all the reasons you mentioned, and Bernie needs to rally his supporters to vote.

    Agreed, the GOP scares the fuck out of me and there are way too may uneducated fools jumping on the Trump bandwagon. If that vile man wins we all lose. We cannot go back in the closet so we all need to get out and vote. Force friends and family to vote. Drive homeless people to vote. Do whatever it takes not to let this evil man become president of the country that has come so far…we can’t go back!!!

  4. this bernie supporter is voting hillary…because voting any other way is unthinkable, and dooms our country to its death.
