I want you to know, right from the get-go, where I stand on the current political climate, especially as it related to the United States of America, where I reside. It’s pretty simple, really… Just see if the following commentary relates to you, and if it does, you should probably follow the advice given:
- If you support President Trump, fuck off.
- If you are still a registered Republican as of this date, fuck off.
- If you have any excuses on your tongue as to why you shouldn’t fuck off, regarding either of or both of points 1 and 2 above, fuck off.
Like I said, simple. President Trump is corrupt, a serial sexual abuser of women (which he has bragged about), with absolutely no sense of shame, let alone anything resembling Presidential. And if that weren’t bad enough, the Republican Party is hell-bent on hurting lower and middle-class Americans, though raising their tax burden and cutting vital “safety net” services for the poor and elderly, just so they can give their ultra-rich donors a massive tax cut. First they tried to do this by abolishing the ACA (Obamacare), and when that effort failed, they set about doing it through their budget. And now, when that effort has failed, the Republicans are trying to do it through revising the tax code itself. At least that effort is fairly straightforward in its blatant Evilness.
Of course, this all is apart from the serial pedophile Roy Moore running for the US Senate as a Republican, who has been publicly endorsed by President Trump. Why am I not surprised? Many of the Republican and White House flunkies who comment upon Moore’s run for Senate won’t come right out and say they prefer a pedophile to a Democrat taking that seat, but they all say they can’t have a Democrat get elected to take that seat, so it’s basically the same thing.
But is this really surprising, since Republicans chose Donald Trump, a man who has publicly stated multiple times that he has sexually harassed and assaulted women and girls, to be their candidate for President? That should have been enough for any reasonable person to turn away from the Republican Party, and for some, it was. But with everything they have done since Trump was elected, and continue to do, anyone who continues to support this party can (say it with me) fuck right the hell off!
So, does that make me a dirty, rotten Democrat? No. I’m a Democratic Socialist, a Progressive who stands for Human Rights, Economic Equality, and seeing our country drag itself out of the 19th century. I want to see us adopt Universal Healthcare, equal rights for all (regardless of their skin color, race, gender (whatever that means), sexual orientation, and so forth), and seeing an end to the Oligarchy that has taken grasp of our political mechanisms. Corporations are not People, we need to remove money from politics entirely through publicly-funded elections, and we absolutely need to return to the 1950’s and 60’s… when it comes to taxes. The top tax bracket should be 90%, like it was when our middle-class grew at the fastest rate it ever has. I am also a gun owner who supports the 2nd Amendment, but also supports common-sense gun control.
With all that in mind, I’m just going to say this one time: If you are a Republican, or support their evil agenda, this isn’t the website for you. Kindly do fuck off.
