Americans: Discouraged and disillusioned with the current corrupted political climate and system.
Congress: All-Time-Low approval ratings.
The System: All but an Oligarchy, Controlled by Billionaires & Corporations with limitless Dark Money.
The Media: Scrambling for ratings with Clown-Car Cage Match debates, Fact-Checking cast to the wind.
It's no wonder that the political outsiders are leading the pack. However, these outsiders are also outside the realm of reality. Spouting out-and-out lies, threadbare truths, xenophobic rants, fractured history, and denial of centuries of scientific achievement and discovery; their diatribes are masked as "refreshing honesty" despite basis in truth or real solutions. Bombast replaces substance in the reality-TV world of today's national politics.
Although a comedic delight, we can't afford the "None-of-The-Above" notion to ignore qualified candidates and propel an entertainer, book-promoter, or other anti-political force to the nomination for the highest position in our country. Politics as showbiz is only really funny when it's fictional!
If you don't want our democracy and citizenry reduced to the rubble shown in the movie "Idiocracy", be sure to VOTE and please, VOTE RESPONSIBLY! #UniteBlue
