I can’t figure out what’s more sad.

That millions of people sincerely, deeply, and passionately support Donald Trump, and think he’s going to make things better, and that he represents their values and worldview.

Or that there’s a ton of media fucknuggets who will turn to us and say, apparently expecting us to actually believe these things, that Both Sides Are Equally Bad.

Or that half the country, just,  half or more, is just asleep for all this. Oh, they know there’s a lot of noise, they can hear the explosions, like distant thunder rumbling. But they have a mountain of excuses to fall back on. Oh, I’m too busy. Oh, I don’t want to look stupid so I’ll just condemn everyone. Oh, I’ll look smart if I go ‘both sides are corrupt equally’. Oh, my vote won’t matter anyhow.

Or that the moment after Donald Trump failed to affirm he was capable of respecting the outcome of a democratic election, that he wasn’t disqualified to be President on the spot.

Or that in this moment, this election itself isn’t about philosophy, or ethics, or policy. It’s about sanity versus insanity. People, conservatives to ultra-liberals, have had to gather around one of those tents because it’s the one that’s not currently on fire.

Or that we stiill haven’t even made a dent in the ruins of our last Republican presidency, and here comes another freight train loaded with dynamite at 300 MPH.

Maybe we’ll dodge it, that may even be likely, but never doubt that it’s very possible Trump could still win. If we let it happen, if we falter, if we fail, it’ll happen.

And if you thought George W. Bush was a fuckup, then oh boy, you’re not going to believe the next act the Right has lined up for us.

  • 2016:Trump wins both Republican primary and general election.
  • 2017:In a few months, tensions with China escalate because of Trump's fierce anti-China rhetoric. Trade relations between the two countries deteriorate. Trump uses this to push his popular mercantilistic schemes on the public. The American populace loves it.
  • 2020:Trump consolidates all power by turning the GOP into a centrist party that both the Republicans and Democrats have a hard running against. He wins a second term.
  • 2022:Our relationship with China deteriorates to the point where the US is again in a cold war. Trump, starts his own project called 'Trump Shelters' which he promises, will keep the American populace safe.
  • 2023:Trumpite GOP senators control both the senate and the house. They vote to expand the Presidential term limit.
  • 2024:Trump wins a third election against the Democratic and Republican remnant parties.
  • 2025:With tensions between China and the U.S increasing, Trump elects a new 'cultural policy', to bolster American moral. Architecture, style and culture will be returned to the style of the American 50's. While there are protests, the American populace largely accepts the new measures.
  • 2027:Chinese are considered enemies of the state and Chinese Americans are taken and put into internment camps.
  • 2027:Under the Trump administration, genetic experimentation goes further. The Chinese largely focus their efforts on stealth technology
  • 2028:President Trump tries running for a fourth term, but dies of natural causes in office.
  • 2029:A large private industry called 'Vault Technologies' buys up Trump shelters.
  • 2032:Trump's cultural incentive has been taken up by the vast majority of people and becomes the foundation of culture for the era. The entire world looks like something straight out of 'Leave it to Beaver'.
  • 2040:Europe, which has also been affected by Trump style leadership, starts persecuting the growing Muslim population.
  • 2044:Under the pressures of the times, Coca-Cola changes its name to 'Nuka-Cola'.
  • 2050:European economies collapse causing Europe to invade the Middle East for resources.
  • 2070:China invades Alaska.
  • 2072:US annexes Canada.
  • 2074:US reclaims Anchorage.
  • 2077:Total Nuclear war breaks out between the US and China, destroying civilization as we know it. The only people who survive do so in great underground vaults. Fallout is real.

Hey Trump, not all black people live in “inner cities”

For someone who says he wants to be “a president for all of the people,” Trump sure has a limited understanding of minority groups in the U.S. Trump’s disturbing talk of inner cities was marred in racist stereotypes. And by the way, Trump’s statistics on poverty in inner cities are wrong, too.

In the November election in the USA, vote for your Senator & Congressperson. It’s more important than who is President.

Hey, so, more important than who you’re voting for as President of the United States in the general election: vote down your ticket. Meaning, vote for your Senator, your Congressperson, and your local state & county representatives. This is actually FAR MORE IMPORTANT than the President. While most of us are gerrymandered to all hell (maryland absolutely is x_X) we still need to try.

Here’s the deal: the reason Obama hasn’t gotten much done in the past 8 years is because we’ve had a Republican majority in the House & Senate, & they’re a bunch of whiny babies who block every SINGLE piece of legislation Obama proposes, regardless of how beneficial it is for everyone. So, let me break it down for you:

1. Regardless of if Hilary or Bernie is the democratic nominee, if there’s a Republican majority in Congress, *it won’t matter*. No legislation will get passed, we’ll still be stuck with them refusing to nominate a new Supreme Court Justice, we’ll be stuck with a bunch of bureaucratic nonsense. We NEED a Democratic majority, even a tiny majority, to get anything done.

2. If, gods forbid, Trump is elected, a Democratic congress will be able to mitigate a large amount of the damage he will inevitably try to do. He wants to build a wall around Mexico? Well, he won’t get to do that if Congress tells him to fuck off and they won’t give him the funding. He wants to deport all Muslims? Congress says no, fuck you Trump. We inevitably find that he’s a tax-dodging cheating bastard? Congress goes “lol hey time for impeachment proceedings!” If we have a Republican congress, enough Republican reps are actually on Trump’s side that he WILL get his stupid way.

3. If you’re a socialist / communist and you hate Hilary Clinton a lot, and the REASON you hate her is because you feel that honestly she’s more of a Centrist / 80’s era Republican than she is any sort of leftist or democrat, again, remember that a Democratic Congress will be able to shut down any of her more idiotic Republican-esque legislation. Worried about her entangling us in more goddamn wars? Elect Congressional representatives who will vote against that, and they will keep her on a leash. THAT IS WHAT CONGRESS IS FOR. With a Republican congress, however, you’ll see all the things you hate about Clinton getting through as she ~compromises and negotiates~ with them. With a Democratic Congress, she’ll ~compromise and negotiate~ with THOSE people instead, and thus her legislation will HAVE to become more left-leaning.

So, EVEN IF YOU ARE A REPUBLICAN… if you are a Republican who (rightly!) is terrified of a Trump presidency, PLEASE bite the bullet vote for Democratic delegates in the House and Senate. You know as well as we do (perhaps better, even) that a Trump presidency with a Republican majority will be far, far, far more disastrous than a Clinton presidency with a Democratic majority. If you’re that concerned about it, then get your act together as a party and in 4 years field someone who isn’t a raging lunatic.

If you are a socialist who balks at voting for Clinton, AT LEAST vote in democratic (or hell, socialist! green party! COMMUNIST) representatives for Congress.
