God Help America In This Presidential Election

They’re all so great I don’t know who to choose.

Choosing a presidential candidate isn’t like the Bachelor/Bachelorette narrowing the competition down to two beautiful candidates, each one with a great personality and has all the things they’re looking for in a future mate. No, this year we have a bunch of candidates competing, that if this were the actual TV show the Bachelor or Bachelorette would be running for the hills screaming, “I’d rather stay single!”

The problem with politicians is they say whatever bullshit the people want to hear and then once elected, they do what their financials backers/lobbyists want them to do. It’s true for most of them. I have said it before and I’ll say it again, America is under a dictatorship and Americans don’t even know it. “Huh?” you say. Yes, I do. It’s a two party dictatorship that needs to go.

Americans need to stop voting along party lines and vote for a person because of what they stand for. Not because they’re a Republican or a Democrat. And the Electoral College and Super Delegates needs to go as well. What’s wrong with letting the American public vote for their next president directly?

Hmm, let’s see. Heads for Bernie, tails for Hillary, get it? It makes sense.

When you see caucuses deciding on a winner by the toss of a coin, we know we’re in trouble. Wtf, we’re not choosing sides for playing volleyball on the beach. The people who vote for one candidate or the other deserves to have their voices heard. Each voice, each vote, should be counted. How can Americans accept this kind of voting?

Watching television in this election year, I’ve asked myself more than once, is this all America has to offer? When candidates are acting more like children slinging mud in a school yard and calling each other names, are they worthy or dignified enough to be the next president?

Let’s look at the two front runners so far…

trump 1_opt
I’m the Donald. No one says no to me or else I don’t play!

Donald Trump. Here’s a candidate who:

1. Made fun of someone with a physical disability. Calls women, fat pigs, dogs, slobs, disgusting animals…I can go on, but you see how he views women. Women like Megyn Kelly and because she’s easy on the eyes he couldn’t call her any of the names he would’ve used otherwise. So what could he do? He insinuated she was on her period because in his mind she had to be if she dared to stand up to him.

2. Speaking of Megyn Kelly, he was so afraid of her afterwards that he refused to show up for the following Republican debate. It begs to question, how is he going to handle tougher opponents like Putin if he couldn’t handle Megyn?

3. He wants to send all illegal aliens back to their own countries. Why didn’t he mind them being in the U.S. illegally when he was building his empire? Trump Tower was built by illegal aliens from Poland. They worked 12 hour shifts, 7 days a week, no overtime and many said they weren’t paid at all for the work they did. You can’t have it both ways Donald.

4. Trump wants to make America great again. Ask people in Atlantic City how great he made things for them. What is his platform besides building a wall? Does he really think other countries are going to pay for things he wants to promote? Just because he screwed business people over in Atlantic City and had others pay for his casinos, does he really think the same thing is going to work for him with foreign countries? Or will he get the U.S. further into debt/bankrupt like he did to himself?

5. When asked about David Duke of the KKK, he couldn’t or wouldn’t respond. Do I need to say more except to ask, are there really black people voting for him? Sure he’s changing his tune now, he’s not that stupid, but videos of him aren’t going away.

I could go on, but let me turn to Hillary Clinton:

Do I need to answer, you’re all boring me?

1. Speaking of black voters, Hillary swept the South on Super Tuesday because of their support, but they seemed to forget her 2008 campaign. Then too when she was First Lady, she was anything but a black supporter. Talking about young blacks and them being incarcerated, she said, “They are not just gangs of kids anymore. They are often the kinds of kids that are called ‘super-predators.’ No conscience, no empathy. We can talk about why they ended up that way, but first we need to bring them to heel.”

2. And why has her email scandal being swept under the rug? Shouldn’t she have to be held accountable for her actions like anyone else? Or once again, is she above the law?

3. Hillary Clinton is backed by big money. When she gets paid as much as $335,000 for giving a speech, you know damn well deep pockets are spending their money for their own interests and not because she knows how to give a damn good pep talk. She owes them, or they own her. Same difference.

4. Independent woman voters don’t need to stand by her (like she stood by Bill) just because she’s a woman. Who cares if she would be the first woman president? You vote for a good candidate who will better the country. Not for what’s between their legs!

5. And speaking of Hillary and Bill, it’s scary when you think about how many unexplained deaths occurred of people who were close to the former president. Okay, you say, that was Bill, not Hillary. But don’t forget, Bill will be First Man and in the White House with her once again if she’s elected. Let me just say, I wouldn’t want to be a member of their inner circle if you know what I mean.

Maya Muses: So where does that leave us? As an independent voter all my life, I’ve always voted for the lesser of two evils. Yes, that’s how I see most politicians. In 2008 I voted for McCain against Obama. In 2012 I voted for Obama against Romney. In 2016 I’ll vote for Bernie Sanders. Why? He’s the only candidate who isn’t evil.

Look at my record, then you’ll believe.

Bernie Sanders:

1. Some say he marched with Martin Luther King, some say he didn’t. One thing he did do. He stood up for blacks/minorities long before he ran for public office. It’s a known fact that in college he stood up for racial equality and was arrested in Chicago during a demonstration protesting the city’s segregation. His actions speaks louder than the blah, blah, blah from the other politicians.

2. He doesn’t have lobbyist/big money backers and therefore he doesn’t owe anything to any of them. His supporters and backers have come from everyday people like you and me donating on average $27.

3. His platform for helping the average American worker is better than Clinton’s. So much so that Hillary has taken to mimicking what Bernie has been saying all along. He stands up for minorities, for the working class, for gay rights, for seniors. He’s fought all along for the little guy against the big corporations, against the rich getting richer (which both Trump and Clinton are a part of) and the poor getting poorer.

4. The polls show, in a race between Trump and a Democrat, Bernie Sanders comes out ahead of Clinton. That in itself is enough to vote for him.

5. People say Hillary has experience. Next to Bernie Sanders, she doesn’t compare. He’s been in public office for over 35 years. Check his record and you’ll see from everyone running, Bernie Sanders is the best choice for President of the United States. He gets my vote.

    I’m with you, Lynn, I can’t imagine either Trump or Hillary as president and Cruz doesn’t inspire confidence either. That leaves Kasich and Bernie. I don’t see Kasich getting enough people behind him, but Bernie is slowly picking up steam. People need to get out and vote for him regardless of party.

    You’re so right. I was thrilled when Bernie took Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii. Your comment reminds me of The Little Engine That Could. I’d always loved that story and I think Bernie can be that little engine. Let’s hope he does take it all the way to the White House!
