Laugh about it, shout about it
When you’ve got to choose
Every way you look at it, you lose

–Simon & Garfunkle, “Mrs. Robinson”

On the one hand you have a lying, war-mongering, win-at-any-price, hypocritical, hubristic  narcissist who’s a servant of the 1%.

And on the other hand you have a lying, war-mongering, win-at-any-price, hypocritical, hubristic narcissist who’s a member of the 1%, and is also a racist bully, a would-be Mussolini, and a sexual predator.

This is what, 240 years on, passes for American democracy: this dog’s breakfast of a “choice.”

There is no good outcome to this election. Every way you look at it, we lose.

    Democracy is nothing more than pandering to minority groups to get votes for power. It’s nothing to do with making USA a better place.
    Narcissism is a fantasy word meaning ‘I wish to insult you’. Narcissus was in love with his facial features and drowned looking at himself, these two are hardly lovely looking.
    Racist is a silly word that originates in ‘unfair racial discrimination’, and discrimination is natural for everyone.
    One wants highly paid jobs in America, the other globalization by outsourcing labor.
    One wants wealth creation so there are more funds to distribute, the other wants to rob those paying 90% of the taxes and redistribute a much smaller wealth pool, making all people poorer.
    I don’t care about the media biased personality opinions that so many people make into beliefs that matter in government leadership, I want the most competent person.
