So, I know we're all sick of the politics at this point. I'm right there with ya. But there is one ludicrous thing to remember of what's going on right now: It's all completely real. Yes folks. That's right. We're not waiting for Candid Camera to come out of the woodwork and tell us it's all an elaborate hoax. This is the reality of the world we live in.
A world where are choices in leaders range from idiotic to downright psychotic. But we're all still really hopeful for the future. It's quite funny actually. True Trump or Hillary supporters genuinely believe that things will start looking up once their candidate of choice is in office. I can't begin to comment on whether that's true or not, but the whole thing seems like a really crazy cultural ritual.
Now, my perspective of this whole voting thing is I don't even know all of the people in my small town, let alone county to trust giving someone else the task of handling social affairs. Even the smallest of small town problems require a lot of co-ordination and communication between everyone so that taxpayers don't wonder where their money went. So how can we possibly trust this on such a massively ambitious scale?
I think at this point regardless of where your political affiliation lies, you can probably say you're tired of politics. So where do we go from here? Well. Just vote I guess. At this point in the game we may as well push forward and try to learn from our mistakes. And also hope that the rest of the world doesn't decide to just tell America to deal with it's own problems. Because we're not really that good at that.
All jokes aside, I do think that regardless of outcome we have some rough times ahead. Not unlike when you kick your loser friend out because he didn't have a job and believed he had a right to live there even if he didn't have "dirty money". There will be growing pains and bad times. But it's all(hopefully) going to lead up to the inevitable us learning from our mistakes and(I can't stress hopefully enough) start trying to understand how to fix our problems in our own communities.
I can't really say where the future will take us. I can't really say if one candidate is better than the other. I can say they both make very good cases for examples of people I really don't want to have the kind of power and responsibility that being a president calls for. But when you have no other option to seek the correct leadership, then doesn't it seem like a silly system to allow when you can completely bottleneck your entire community because the only people seeking to do the job are people who are a disturbingly wrong fit for the position?
Look, all I'm saying is the whole federal government shouldn't be as big of a thing as it is. This is why. We are living out the reasons why Federal Government should not be as powerful as state and local. Oh dear god America the signs are all in front of you! Please see them!
