With the extreme silly season in full swing with endless negative ads, pathetic candidates and boring misinformed pundits and truly disgusting programming from the TV..it is time to step back and take a break from this moronic exercise in futility…..
Since I was about 15 years old I have liked politics and political theory, but in the last decade I have watched that go down the crapper…..I try to help people think about what is going on in the world of politics….sometimes I have been called many things for many reasons, none of which are accurate….I guess what my grandfather told me about writing and talking politics….”when you try to teach pigs to sing….you waste your time and piss off the pig”…….and damn! The man was prophetic!
I have analyzed many political seasons……and this one is the worst one I have witnessed. This election has been condensed down to the lowest denominator……it is about who can sling the most mud and insults at the other….it is bad enough that the candidates are doing it but now these bottom feeders have the American people doing it to each other.
I want to believe that the people want what is best for the country and its citizens….but you would not know it by all the rhetoric on either side. With people’s lives hanging in the balance the election is about who wins or loses….not about what one would do if elected. Oh both sides of this theater has lots of ‘ideas’ but none of them are realistic….just mindless rhetoric to confuse and misinform
It is about a month until the conventions and I am sick at the amount of crap that is said and done in the name of the American people. This election has seldom been about the lives of the people but rather a contest of personalities. It is about sound bites not policies……..it is about 30 second interviews and not substantial policies….
It is negativity at its worse. And people that try to make sense of this steam pile of bovine fecal matter are demonized, both sides, some of it is warranted and most of it is not. This system was founded on the idea of equality and today it is about which side has the most money for their attacks…..
So enough is enough!
I have decided to take a break from the mindless exercise that is the 2012 election until after the conventions maybe then this will return to the point where it is about what is best for the country. I will continue to post every day but they will not be so much about the candidates but other cool stuff. Since I worked in the Middle East in my younger years I will do some posting on stuff in the area……I regret that I feel I have to cleanse myself from the pathetic crap that this election is conjuring up……..
Hopefully, sanity returns!
