Now, at Prepster Punk, we are some liberal mofos, but I do not subscribe to one party or another exclusively. I like President Barak Obama because he is noticeably and exceptionally intelligent, grasping not only the constitutionality and morality of things, but also the practicality and feasibility of things. I liked Colin Powell for the same reasons. This, everyone, is why so many bleeding heart liberals are disappointed. They thought President meant Most Perfect King of the United States. I did not. I understand how that mistake can be made though. Kinda. Well, not really, but I’m a Dem supporter, so I guess I have to cut them some slack. Hey, George W. Bush thought Emergency Security Brief was the new Hanes x DOD collaboration G.I. Joe drawls for grown-ups that he had so eagerly anticipated, but much to his chagrin, he later realized that it was a set of documents that meant read now, or read later, if you really want to, or have some else read it to you before bed because all of the big words are difficult to understand. So, nobody’s perfect.
Now, Bernie Sanders. is exceptionally bright, and seasoned, as noticed by the way he handles his floor time. Love him. Hate him. Whatever. But how can you honestly disagree with this at its base? See, C-Span is good for something. And while I disagree with some of the points, like the statement that the CEO of a firm, whose primary responsible is to shareholders and firm, should also be expected to act simultaneously be a public servant, I do believe that, as is historically the case, it is the government’s job to influence pro nation behavior. An while I also wouldn’t go as far as to call it some wealthy vs. everyone else conspiracy, logically speaking, I can’t completely discredit him with the state of politics as of the past couple of years. More big money has entered the political process than ever, and more stupid people are being convinced to vote against their own interests than ever.
OK. Skip the fact that he opens his time on the floor like Prodigy in ’95 and bask in the happening. Yes, people still have real shit to say in the Senate.
Eliminate in part or whole, or privatize Social Security (yea, that would have worked brilliantly in 2008 and 2009, wouldn’t it?), eliminate the estate tax, offer higher end tax breaks, offer no means by which to pay for them besides the reduction in health care, social programs and unemployment benefits, but pretend that its all about the deficit and debt and you have the minority far right position. It is ruining the Republican Party, and as Bush would say, trying to dummify you. Don’t be dummified.
