Time to assess the need or reasons to pay any more attention to the presidential campaign. So far I am at zero, zip, zilch, nada. It all runs together and truth be told, I've already made up my mind.
Most people who actively vote have. That's right, we are about to watch enough cash to fund healthcare, schools, housing or food for literally millions of people be tossed out the window like so much ticker tape. (archaic reference)
Money that could save hundreds of thousand of people from going in to foreclosure, money that would pay off most student loans. Hell money that could go for pay raises and hiring of new workers.
We do this almost every other year. We see that some people are more willing to waste that money than to spend it on the betterment of the nation in general because they are afraid that someone may use it to become more equal. They see only threats from the poor who they need to keep in line and subservient in order to keep growing personal wealth.
I have nothing against someone doing well or for that matter getting damned rich, it just seems like they are unwilling to get rich the old fashioned way and pay for the priviledge of having that wealth. When a business talks about why they are so worthy of being coddled and given preference they often speak of the "good" they do by providing jobs. Okay, let's just clear the air about this, they do not hire a single person if they can avoid it to ensure that profits are maximized. I've heard the phrase "give me a paycheck" until my ears bleed but the truth here again is that they make considerable profit from and employees labpor so they are not "giving" a goddam thing to anyone.
Okay, I titled this decisions, decisions for a reason, that is this. Is it worth the effort writing this crap? Really? Because few people read it, it will make no difference what so ever. Ideology rules the nation and those who believe one way refuse to even listen to any opposing opinions. Not that I'm any better, I am as guilty as anyone of this.
