If you watch South Park then you know what the title refer to…. If you don’t watch South Park then you are servery missing out on the greatest show of all time. (Click the link to find out more about the 20th Season Episode Premiere I am referring to!)
Basically the premise is that its Presidential Election time and its between a Giant Douche and a Turd Sandwich… Both suck, clearly, and the kids can’t understand why “every 4 years, we have to choose between a Giant Douche and a Turd Sandwich”…
I can’t help but think about this episode and the titles of the candidates every time I think about the current presidential election.
The world is a scary place right now, and our country seems even scarier… We have riots in the streets going on for days, our law enforcement is NOT respected, we’re on the cusp of a SECOND Civil War and to top it all off, home grown ISIS terrorists keep popping up like a bad game of whack-a-mole.
Basically our once great nation, is going to complete shit and the people who are running for the highest office in the WORLD are being made to look / making each other look like complete jackasses…
All politics aside… what happened to respect for authority?
What happened to respect for those who hold or run for office?
What happened to respect for each other and the opinions one has?
This election, more than any I can remember, has brought out the ABSOLUTE worst in people.
Me, Personally, I am voting for Trump. I PERSONALLY, like what he has to say and think he is what our country needs to be turned around. I think he is a excellent business man and at the end of the day our country is a business that is failing (and in the red) miserably. I think that for myself and my man friend, we pay an obscene amount for GOOD health insurance… I think that for working 2 jobs, I take home very little, because taxes are so god damn high… I think that we need someone outside of the establishment to make ACTUAL change. I think that 4-8 years with Hillary Clinton would be more of the same and basically another round of Obama… Which clearly hasn’t been working… I think that the narrative that he will get us “blown up” or that he will be trigger happy is complete b.s.. He will have more “Political” Advisers and oh, that little thing called CONGRESS…. to keep him in line.
Personally, I believe Benghazi was a horrific tragedy, that could have been avoided and if you haven’t seen 13 Hours, you need to…… I think Hillary’s actions during the trials and the way she conducted herself in front of and to the victims families was deplorable. Her email scandal is shady A.F. and more than that, I do not want to have my future daughters (god-willing) grow up knowing that this woman who was our FIRST FEMALE PRESIDENT, stood by her husband during the most publicly humiliating and famous Presidential cheating scandal of the common day. If you haven’t read the book The Residence, you absolutely should… If sheds some incredible insight into the height of the cheating scandal!
Granted I agree we as a nation probably could have produced 2 BETTER candidates for the highest office in the world…. But this is what we’re dealt…. So deal with it…
But my PERSONAL opinion, does not need to change yours. You want to vote for Hillary? Sure go for it… You think Trump sucks, you loathe him? You think he is despicable, a moron, a liar? Ok, you’re entitled to your own opinion… I don’t have to agree with it because its just that… Its YOURS… It isn’t my job to change it…
My absolute favorite are the posts about people moving to Canada once the election happens… Really…. Are you really going to uproot your entire life, and file paper work to get a Visa, to move to Canada, for 4-8 years? Really? Are you really going to actually do that???? NO… So SHUT UP! You’re going to tough it out for the next 4-8 years, just like EVERY OTHER PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION!
So many people think it is their personal job to change other peoples mind… MANY friends of mine, post content opposing the other side… and then argue with people who post to the contrary… This election has brought out such an ugly side of people, that I find myself unfollowing or unfriending because I just don’t want to see it anymore…What makes me even more disgusted are the arguments that take place on someones post between STRANGERS!
WHY DO YOU NEED TO ARGUE YOUR POINT TO A COMPLETE STRANGER??? ARE YOU THAT BORED??? Go pack to move to Canada, go take a walk, go work-out, go play with your kids, dog, spouse, etc… STOP BEING A TROLL!
Politics and Friendship do not mix. Which is why I keep my mouth shut (most of the time) and keep my opinions to myself… After the debate last night the narraitve has gotten out of hand and I felt the need to express myself…
Now… Can we all just put our differences aside, respect one another and fshow some love, kindness, and gratitude for all that we have… especially each other?
Kindness and Love…. That is what I am voting for….
XOXO – Be kind to one another…. We’re all we’ve got!
