Yeah, I kinda like Trump. It's time for a resurgence of traditional masculinity. And who doesn't hate PC? (The enforcers in academia, offices and government, that's who.) Nothing is going to change for me as a result of the presidential election.
Note that I chose a positive image of Trump instead of one of those snarling dog pics that people pick for a candidate they dislike.
I've mostly exited from the online political wars. I'm babysitting almost full time as my son-in-law goes through training for his new job, so I have less opportunity to sit online.
The U.S. has gone to hell. No doubt about that. Third world style corruption has been entrenched by the racial and sexual quota system. Who would have thought 60 years ago that that would be the outcome of the civil rights movement? (I guess an adult understanding of the world would have led one to predict that outcome. I was a kid 60 years ago.)
Can any particular candidate make the situation markedly worse? I suppose. Hillary Clinton is bizarrely corrupt and incompetent. Actually implementing Bernie Sanders' policies could lead to a Venezuela style economic collapse.
I see the electorate itself as the problem. You get the government you deserve, right? The welfare queen/entitlement mentality has taken the country by storm. This is, I think, the inevitable fate of a super affluent society. Only dopes really want to work hard and strive for excellence. Why not just ride out the good times and milk the system?
From time to time, I go back to the web to fight it out. What's the point? I mostly do that after a long day of babysitting, as an alternative to collapsing in front of the TV and watching my narcotraficante soap opera.
I'm Mr. Mom now, and that means that I'm regressing toward childhood. Here's a watercolor I did while I was playing with my granddaughter.
My day consists of feeding time, play period, diaper change and nap. An endless cycle. All day long I try to reason with my 2-1/2 year old granddaughter... an impossible task. I am answering the eternal question... "Why?"
The U.S. electorate, on the whole, seems as open to common sense as my granddaughter. We're just a bunch of dumb kids fighting over the spoils of the incredible patrimony left to us by our hard working WWII generation parents. It will take war and devastation to pull our heads out of our asses, and I think that is coming.
Would a Trump presidency change things? Probably not.
