I cannot wait for these elections to be over with. We’re fucked no matter what. This country has been turning to shit for a while. Having said that, it is still the best country in the world. A lot of it has to do with the uneducated youth of today. And by “uneducated,” I do not mean school/college wise. I know many people who have a PhD but are dumber than a box of rocks when it comes to reality. When having conversations about Obamacare (before and after it was passed), I told people exactly what was going to happen. Guess what? I was right. It wasn’t hard to figure out either. I just applied logical common sense to a situation where people’s behaviors are predictable. Having a son with disabilities, I had a stake in that law. I wanted something to happen, but I knew the law, as passed (which law makers didn’t even read beforehand) was not going to be the savior people hoped.
This election is the same deal. It does not matter who wins in regards to the world going to shit. It’ll still get there, but it just might be how entertaining it is on the way. Young people tend to go off emotion and what people say and what it means for them. They do not look at the fact that all candidates lie, cheat, and steal to get what they want. They do not see that candidates can make all the promises in the world, but in actuality, they do not have the power to enact such promises. Sure, Hillary can say free college tuition, and that might make college students vote for her because they are dealing with debt, but they haven’t read how she will make that happen or if it is even possible. Trump can say he’s going to build a wall or repeal Obamacare, and some people might vote for him because of that, but they have no clue how he’s going to do it.
The world is turning into a shit show. There is nothing I can do about it, so I am just going to grab my lawn chair, a six-pack, and watch the shit burn while roasting hot dogs over the fires of Hell.
