…one or everyone for themselves, I believe the American people will choose to build, not to destroy. But it’s a great shame for this entire nation that it has come down to this moment, with one of our two political parties standing in the middle of the living room, soaking everything in gasoline, and lighting a match.
It’s time to let the Trumpists have what they want
This is what it has come to. Yes, it is difficult to comprehend the effort to justify this. I’ve never seen any justification of this from anyone in the Republican party. Somehow this is what they think the voters asked them to do? How can that be? The only discussion I’ve seen is frantic concern with the national deficit but that is a result of tremendous military expenditures driven, yes, by the Republican party and, apparently, mindless tax cuts to drive those deficits higher. The only other stated goal is to eliminate affordable healthcare. My god, even if people asked for that would you give it to them? This is not rational as the population in general has stated over and over again that the general concern is with shoddy schools and poor education, healthcare costs that bankrupt families by the millions, and decent wages for jobs and, soon, what to replace those jobs with so people can surive. These are the issues. The current excuse for a budget will destroy what support people have on the issues that are most important to them. How does this make sense?
Yes, the only logical conclusion is that they simply want to destroy government. They apparently have the votes in the senate unless someone suddenly gags on that they have agreed to do or realizes they will have no answer for the people who elected them when they ask why what they need is taken away to give to Trump and the billionaires. But that doesn’t seem to matter. Ok, it doesn’t matter.
So let’s give them what they want. This country cannot survive with mentally ill leadership and greed driven scum suckers controlling Congress so lets shut it down. They’ve actually been trying to do that through the eight years of the Obama administration, an administration that implemented almost all of past Republican ideas on government that were viable. Since only destruction is left that is what they want. I’m ready and thought it would come to this since January. Insanity is not a viable way to run the most powerful nation state on the planet and ruling regime bent on self-destruction could destroy everything.
We need to break this country into regions and let the Trumpistan parts go their way. We know they are not financially viable but consideration and mindfulness for these people draws only hatred and violently racist attacks. So let let them destroy it . Their choice. They get to have the parts they want so they can have the military and all of the foreign wars (there are a number of them) and the rest of us will do without that. But they don’t get anything from the states or urban regions that agree to leave and let the government collapse. At least the parts of North America that leave the failed union can limit the damage and suffering to their populations. What choice do we have?
The good folks in Trumpistan can do without healthcare and education. I guess they have their churches that can teach the kids mythology and how to pray away their hunger. I suppose they will mostly end up in their military with a good socialist living. It is a bit of a problem that a military doesn’t produce anything but they will learn that soon enough. The Russians had a problem with a huge military that got nasty when they didn’t get paid or fed but they sent them to places they could live off of the local population. Not my problem because I am not going to be part of Trumpistan.
I think the sooner we get this over with the better . . .
