State of the Union - Disgusting
The lies. The two farcical political parties and their idiotic fucking clapping and sitting and standing and the ties and the greedy old white men. The asshole president and the robotic vice president behind him looking like he needs some Metamucil. The people who watch it and analyze it like it's some kind of democracy or something. The talking heads who try to tell you what shit means.
I'll tell you the state of the union in one word and in much less time - disgusting.
Our government is disgusting and that's where it starts, unfortunately. That what's defines the State of our Union. It's not you, it's not me, it's this fucking political system.
I should make it clear however that I just got home, did not watch any of it and haven't read any summaries, critiques or comments other than a few on Caucus99Percent.
But it doesn't take a brain surgeon as the saying goes.
It's not just Trump. It's not just the two parties. It's the entire system. The lies tell the story. EVERY single politician of both political parties accept and perpetuate the big lies. They ALL pretend this is democracy, they all support war and imperialism, they all know this political system serves the rich and powerful and their corporations, banks and financial scams.
And they have the nerve to sit there on national television in front the world and make fools of themselves and every one of us that calls the United States of Amerika home.
To those still thinking the democratic party is the lesser evil and can be reformed, or even moved to the left - electing so called progressives who support U.S. imperialism and the BIG LIES won't change a thing. And EVERYONE OF THOSE CANDIDATES do just that, they support U.S. imperialism and the BIG LIES, because they have to. And it not just that they have to, it's that the only ones who can get close to the Holy Grail are those that are too chickenshit to challenge the BIG LIES.
I've had people tell me, trying to excuse democratic party politicians, that it is political suicide to be anti-imperialism and bring up the BIG LIES like 9/11, the agenda to rule the world and the fact that we don't live in a democracy.
Are you kidding me? That's as Orwellian as it gets to accept a system that prevents the truth and encourages lies.
It's nights like tonight that should prove to sensible Americans that the political system in this country needs to be replaced with one that actually represents democracy. Because this one isn't democracy, it's a fucking joke.
