i am here only to post once and after that i am going to zip it as i am not here to debate politics or question anybodies opinions as it is a free country and individulism is important so it would be wrong to think that all should think like me. so i am going to spill my rant and then just move on.
there is no wrong answer here people, the issue is the general public has given us a shitty choice, the idiot buffoon, or the idiot moron ..... oh yeah or apparently the rapper who will save everything smh.
I do not swing left or right (unless i am not wearing pants lol) I swing in the direction of minimal government interference in the lives of the American people, and right now there is no party with a chance to win in existence that can give this too us. Unfortunately we have nobody to blame but ourselves. We all sit there and blame the government for all our problems and how they are the problem when they are a problem we created. It kills me to think that anybody would want someone dictating what we do how and when and if anything came out of this pandemic (not downing the seriousness of it) it is how quickly they can take over our way of life.
The federal government in the form it is supposed to be in is minimalistic not this great machine we have now. a great percentage of what is now done on a federal level was never meant to be. the powers of the state seems to have disappeared over time, which i guess was inevitable as the general public is submissive in nature and need to be ruled by a greater power.
The whole idea of "of the people, by the people, for the people" is long gone while we sit back and gloat about which side of this so called great two party system is better. I am here to tell you they are both broken beyond repair and the system is to a point to where i believe there is no recovery. Again nobody to blame but ourselves.
The right has swung so far right and the left so far left there is no middle ground anymore where we need to be for this system to survive. we the people have drawn hard lines in the sand that cannot be erased, and without compromise this republic will not survive. This is how Trump made into office, it was the beginning of a mini revolution, a F%*k You to the government if you will.
We are now left at a point in our short history where there is no good choice there is no right choice, there is not even really choice at all, and this saddens me deeply as i love my country and what it is supposed to stand for.
“I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.“I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies."

this idea has faded to black
I will continue to stand my the creed i choose to live by which was penned by someone unknown and slightly modified by yours truly ....
I do not choose to be a common man
It is my right to be uncommon
I seek opportunity… Not security.
I seek dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery
I do not wish to be a kept citizen,
Humbled and dulled by having the state look after me
I want to take the calculated risk
To dream and to build
To fail and succeed
I refuse to barter incentive for a dole.
I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence
The thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia.
I will not trade freedom for beneficence
Nor my dignity for a hand out
I will never cower before any earthly master nor bend to any threat
It is my heritage to stand erect,
proud, and unafraid
To think and act for myself
To enjoy the benefits of my creations
And to face the world boldly and say
“This I have done with my own hand"
I apologize if i have interfered in your debate, just after reading through it i felt the overwhelming need to vent this out.
so love me, like me ,hate me, loathe me, or ridicule what i have to say but understand i respect all your opinions and do not judge people by there choice of politics, and if I voted for anything in 2020 it would be to disband the entire lot of em and start over which we all know will not happen.
if anyone is interested this is a good read ... https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/317782/our-lost-constitution-by-senator-mike-lee/
