Needless to say I have been listening to the various peeps that claim to know it all and they are all saying the same thing. Politicians have, for too long, ignored the working classes and the rural voters. Both have been losing ground since the Reagan and Thatcher years and it is one of the major reasons Trump trumped reason and became King of America. A few months ago as Trudeau sailed into town in a golden ship of tomorrowness I might have disagreed . I certainly would not have cared about rural voters I considered them to be whiners clinging to a distant past that no one cares about any more. Not so anymore. I have read so much stuff listened to armchair as well as real philosophers and I can only conclude that, especially in America, those that would pretend to lead scooch their rears onto the thrones of democracies around the world and have done just that; ignored and disenfranchised us all.
The stupid thing is; no the fucking stupid thing is, we have known this for centuries and despite assorted rebellions and flirtations with progressive socialism we have let them get away with it.
Living with the likes of Trump should have been a thing of the past. We should have been able to say that not since WW1 have we seen the likes of this madman. Yet here we are again just waiting for the shit to flow. The swing to right wing radicalism is a knee jerk reaction by truly stupid people not capable of thinking, fact finding for themselves, so much easier to follow the liar with the biggest mouth.
We need a 180 degree attitude swing but I think you are all too afraid; too afraid to try reason, too lazy to make a difference and even worse so very unaware.
What ever our shade we outnumber the wankers on top of the heap waving their dicks at us. So why doesn’t the ballot box reflect that?
Well just another four years to figure it out.
