My determination to remain uncommitted to any politician or political movement is being tested, I admit, by The Donald. I've been fed up with PC censorship since... well, forever. The era of denunciation, informing, shushing and blacklisting has to end. Is Trump the one to do that? Should I focus on that as the primary concern in the upcoming election?
I'll go back to my oft-repeated mantra that I don't care that much who is president. My interest in Trump is based on the forlorn hope that he will deliver a knock out punch to the hate whitey crowd. I'm sure as hell not going to vote for a Democratic candidate. The organizing principle of that party is hatred of straight white men, i.e., me.
How does that madness affect me? (I always try to go back to that measurement.)
Not much. I've been retired and I haven't set foot in a corporate office in 3-1/2 years. Slugging it out with the Diversity enforcers is almost entirely in my past. I'm certainly not going to take up the crusade to defeat them or to drive them out of their apparatchik offices.
The closest I come to involvement in corporate America is watching professional sports. I watched an entire NFL game yesterday, Broncos vs. Pats, for the first time this season and I got the full dose. Especially the commercials... diversity propaganda at its finest. Every black family in a corporate commercial is Ozzie and Harriet.
Once again, why should I care? My family is doing well. My grandkids are being raised in a traditional All American household. I can turn off the TV any time I want. (And, I do. I sit in silence for days sometimes out in the woods in the Catskills.)
Political corruption in the U.S. is beginning to look similar to corruption in a Third World country. Hillary really does resemble Imelda Marcos. Clinton shamelessly uses political office as an opportunity to collect every available bride and payoff. Every agency of the Fed has been politicized under Obama and committed to stifling free speech and dissent.
Am I going to get on my white horse and fight that?
I'm tired even of the political arguments on Facebook. But, I spend so much time alone that the urge to simply converse with another human frequently overwhelms me. Against my better judgment, I go to Facebook for companionship. By default, the only thing I have in common to talk about with strangers is politics. So, back into the abyss.
From a policy standpoint, Trump is problematic. He's been all over the place, and he has no public record. Who in the hell knows what he would do once in office? (Of course, it's a crap shoot with any candidate, isn't it?)
I'm all in with Trump's announced determination to secure the southern border, to build a fence and to stop further Muslim immigration. Since I no longer want a job, the issue of illegal immigration means less than it once did. However, I am within striking distance of New York City and another major Jihadi attack on the city (which we all know is coming) would have a major impact on me and my family.
Can The Donald stop the Muslim invasion? Can he stop the era of PC censorship and Diversity enforcement?
Answer: Damned if I know.
