I don’t normally like to discuss politics but a friend recently inspired me to tackle the current political landscape from a rather partisan but fair angle. Donald Trump is supposed to scare you. If he doesn’t, you probably have mental issues. Let’s just be honest. Bernie Sanders is also scary. They’re both radicals on two sides of the same aisle. To be perfectly honest, I’m scared by all the politicians. I think they’re corrupt and power-hungry egomaniacs. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. I have great hope in the American people to elect someone that is the least amount of crazy. I’m biased towards Bernie Sanders for a multitude of reasons. For example, I believe the growing income inequality gap needs a radical solution. Not to mention global warming, which is an issue of paramount importance for the sake of future generations. I’m worried to bring children into this world because of their uncertain and perilous future. Free college education is also a fantastic idea, although I’m not sure how he proposes to achieve such a difficult task in four years. Tax the rich and corporations to provide for aspiring young minds? I’m in favor of this goal, but it’s still a mystery. Only time will tell who ultimately wins the election. And it’s still many months away. To be honest, I’m not informed on all the issues but I certainly have my radical opinions. I honestly don’t believe Bernie Sanders stands a chance in today’s society. The country as a whole is too divided politically and the majority of young people don’t go to the polls and vote. Hopefully this time it will be different due to the overwhelming support of Bernie on social media. However, when it comes down to the cold hard truth, I believe politics is all about money. Whoever has the most financial support and political clout ultimately wins the election! It’s a rigged game. Clearly, Hillary is the clear winner in this scenario. Trump has billions of dollars, of course, but he doesn’t have the support of high-up officials in the government. Hillary has all of the necessary ingredients of a winning president. I think she’s corrupt as hell and she scares me, but it would be awesome to see the first woman president in my lifetime! I’m all about women’s empowerment! We’re all just humans living on a tiny blue sphere floating through space in a universe trillions of years old. Why does any of this even matter in the grand scheme of things? That’s a great question. The only purpose in life is what you create. Choose to fight on the side of good. Use the force. Do not be lead into darkness. Follow the light until your death! But now we’re getting off-topic. I’m an entrepreneur. I think different about issues and refuse to look at things from a single angle. We could use a lot more of this critical thinking in the current world. Politics is the same way. We’re not simply a collection of liberal and conservative people. We’re just people with different opinions. Why is it not easier to come together and reach a mutual understanding? Trump uses this weakness to his advantage. His campaign seeks to inject fear and division into the American people. Build a big wall to keep those nasty immigrants out. China is the enemy because they’re stealing our jobs. Ted Cruz attacked me and he’s an asshole who doesn’t get along with anyone. He’s basically a big cry-baby if you think about it. Money really doesn’t buy happiness! He’s living proof. If you let him control you with hate speech, he’s already won your mind. Vote against the propaganda machine that is Trump with disrespect and contempt! But to be fair and balanced, unlike FOX News, Bernie is clearly a left-wing radical. Quite likely an atheist socialist. Why is that a bad thing, you ask? I believe any political ideology or belief system can be taken too far. He wants to tax corporations more which will result in a net loss from investors and possible bankruptcy. Less companies, fewer jobs, more poverty. That’s certainly not good for the country. Now, it’s not clear that this is the actual outcome but it’s entirely likely. It could be argued that he doesn’t have as much experience in government as Hillary. She was Obama’s Secretary of Defense for awhile, not to mention the First Lady all those years ago. Hillary has more experience in the political arena. Bernie is also 74 years old and stands a good chance of dying in office. That persistent cough during the previous democratic debate is not instilling me with confidence in his health. If Hillary were to win and nominate Bernie as Vice President, or vice versa, that would be the best scenario of two lesser-evils. Again, only time will tell who wins, but it is most assuredly not Trump. He would be the laughing stock of the primaries. Thank you very much for reading this post.
