Saying that I would also like to point out that if you read the news or watch any kind of television, you will hear about Donald Trump 24 hours a day. If you stand back and think about it, this is unacceptable. Look, I despise Donald Trump as much as anyone on this planet. I even tried to watch a new show called France 24. I was totally flummoxed to see that they had almost as much coverage of Donald Trump as any media outlet in the United States.
There are other things in the world going on besides what Trump does and says. We are involved in conflicts around the world that nobody hears about because everyone is fixated on someone despicable. When 50% or more of the news is about one person, there's not much room to talk about other things that matter. In fact, politics takes up the other 50% of coverage on the mainstream media. I watch YouTube on my television and I would say that 80% of the things on YouTube are either about Donald Trump or politics. When I say politics, I'm talking about the Democrats and the Republicans and no other political party is ever mentioned as if we only have two political parties that matter. This is part of the problem that we have in this country. When no coverage is given to the Green party or any other party, then no one will know what it is that they stand for.
The Democratic Party is worse than the Republican Party because they will pretend that they are progressive and have the best interests of the people in mind while they vote against our best interests. I have been around the block and I have seen the most treacherous people voted into office time after time because people just aren't paying attention!
I have been writing for almost 20 years about money in politics and how legalized bribery has bought off almost every Senator and Congressman in Washington. I have also been writing about how the United States has got its fingers into almost every nation and every situation on the planet. For two decades this hasn't seemed to penetrate most of the population. I have been called just about every name in the book. I have been told that I don't like the United States than I can move and much worse.
The situation today is a little better. I even stopped writing for a time because I felt like I was preaching to the choir. Almost everything that I've written is now on the lips of almost everyone in the country. What amazes me is that even though most people understand that our politicians are corrupt and are bribed by corporate interests, they still don't understand that this paradigm of a two-party duopoly does nothing to change the things that are wrong with this nation.
Everyone talks but they do not act on their deeply held beliefs. Most people in the United States hold their nose and vote for the lesser of two evils. Frankly, this has got to stop. We can't keep doing the same things and expect different results. This is the very definition of insanity.
I have seen Democrats promise gloriously progressive changes, and when they are elected they don't deliver on any of their promises. How many times does it take for people to understand that as long as they play the two-party game, they will never get what they want? I was heartened to see Americans waking up to the fact that corporations own their politicians, yet I see them voting for the same two parties that got us into this mess.
It doesn't take a genius to understand that holding office as either a congressman or senator will undoubtedly make these people millionaires very quickly. Every Senator that we have representing the people in the United States are millionaires. Most people in the House of Representatives are millionaires or they will be by the time they leave office. This is not conjectured this is a fact.
I'm not saying anything new here, I'm sure that everyone reading this understands that what am saying is the absolute truth. I am getting to the point where I believe that most of the people in America that vote are either mentally ill or just stupid.
When Trump won the election, I wrote an article about how Donald Trump didn't win the election, Hillary Clinton lost the election and made Donald Trump our president. You can blame the Democrats for Donald Trump. You can see how corrupt the Democrats are if you would only look at their voting records. Almost every Democrat votes yes to almost every piece of legislation that funds the military at the expense of everything they are supposed to stand for. The defense budget (and I use that term loosely), takes away the funding for Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and every other program that helps to make things better for the people in this country.
When there is a conflict overseas that doesn't threaten our national security and the war hawks want to get involved, the Democrats get in line and vote to send weapons and soldiers (our sons and daughters) at the behest of the neocons. When the government wants to do their surveillance in the name of "national security", the Democrats vote for it. Just remember, they have accumulated records of every phone call and every email and every text along with every website anyone has ever visited. They have collected every tweet, every like on Facebook and everyone's Facebook profile. It is important to remember that these people don't care about our privacy.
It makes you wonder why we have two different political parties when they are so much alike. It might be better if they just merge into one party and that way we could save all the rhetoric that we read in the newspapers and here on every media outlet. Some say that we should have a strong third party. I not only agree with them, because in 2004 I tried to start one, but it failed miserably. We had a great website, but that's as far as we got.
When trying to convey in this article is that it can't be Donald Trump 24 hours of every day. We need to focus on what the rest of his administration is doing and for all peace of mind start concentrating on what's happening in the world and I'm not talking about where our politicians are telling us about this planet. I believe have become totally distracted and we are not paying attention to the problems that we can solve. I will say this again as I have said many times, don't listen to the mainstream media for your information. You have the world and all the information in it at your fingertips. You can do your own research on anything you're interested in on your computer and now even on your phone. Don't take the word of some talking head on MSNBC, CNN, Fox, or CBS. Just, for example, everyone is so fixated on the Supreme Court nominee, why are they not talking about the 16 women were stewing Donald Trump for sexual abuse?
The most important things that we as citizens have got to remember is that the government should not mandate what the people of the United States should do, rather it is the people who should be telling the government what to do. When we become the slaves of the government, we are no longer citizens, but slaves.
