My ONLY Thoughts About the 2024 Election


CEDAvsFan

Ironically, I will use the immortal words of Richard Nixon:  "Let me make one thing perfectly clear."

I HATE politics. I would rather relive all of the worst moments involving my favorite sports teams than get into ANY form of politics. I can't stand it. I'm not a Republican. I'm not a Democrat. I'm not red. I'm not blue. I'm not conservative. I'm not liberal. I am a Woke Centrist. I find both parties repugnant. Lewis Black said it right in a comedy special 20 years ago. The Democrats are the party of no ideas, and the Republicans are the party of bad ideas. Really, really bad ideas. I think both parties aren't trustworthy, but I will say this:  the Dems are the lesser of two evils, because at least they appear to care more about the important civil rights issues:  race, LGBT rights, immigration, and a woman's right to choose.

I am venting about this because, yes, it's an Election year. Great...

I've spent years avoiding election talk every four years, and with who's involved this year, I am REALLY dodging it. Let's face it:  the election is Biden vs Trump--the rematch nobody wanted. Nikki Haley is nothing but background noise who thinks the half millennium of oppression that Black people have faced is all in our heads. Let's get one thing straight:  Biden is a better choice than Trump, but that is not f**king saying much. Being better than Trump is like being better than the Carolina Panthers this NFL season--who the f**k isn't? Biden only won in 2020 (and yes, he won; the MAGAts need to get the f**k over it) because he's not Trump. While it's good to be "not Trump," that's not enough.

And no, I'm not that crazy about Biden either, but I'm not going to go into baseless attacks against him. The two main things that I don't like is when they call Biden "senile" and when they blame him for the current round of inflation. About the latter part, prices go up all the time. That's not caused by any sitting President, that's caused by the law of supply and demand. I guarantee you, had Trump won, the prices would still be skyrocketing. Prices have risen in everything bit by bit forever. And about the other thing, the same people who make the "Sleepy Joe" comments are the same ones who support a guy who actually thought Frederick Douglass was still alive, and thought Nikki Haley was Nancy Pelosi. Seriously, Trump makes Grampa Simpson look sharp as a tack!

It's appalling that we went from a voting in a young Black President in 2008 to an election with two elderly White men who were both born during a period where Curly Howard was the third Stooge. One step forward, about 100 steps back. As for me, I'm going to do my best to block out the next nine months of Election talk with some sports, some TV programs, and LITERALLY anything else.

I think I see where you're coming from. In simple terms, you decide for yourself. You don't swing one way because of this political side or that political side. Your choices are your choices.

 

In regards to a woman's right to choose, I agree with you. Mostly because when our right to choose is taken away, it creates chaos and discord on an epic scale. It creates a war of beliefs. You've heard of tragedies happening during protests when the right to choose was taken away. Also I think we would have less abortions if we had the right to choose. People tend to rebel more when something is taken from them. 

 

In regards to Trump, the only thing I appreciated about him was foreign relations. They were a lot better when he was president. Biden does have a lot of issues, but he has done some good. He's made a lot of mistakes. I believe he has some good intentions, but maybe the job is a bit much for him at this time. 

 

As for skyrocketing prices, I noticed it's gone up a lot more in recent years. I remember about 6 years ago I could get a Big Mac meal large sized and 2 McChickens with cheese for $20. Now it would cost a little closer to $30. Minimum wage has just about doubled. Bulls have gone up. People are now in the fight for $20 and $25 an hour. Too bad we don't have a president like the one portrayed by Morgan Freeman in Deep Impact when he froze prices.

I don't care about politics. Period. To me it's all just hot air. Politicians claim they wanna help out our world, yet we get the complete opposite. Your new blog definitely hit home here.

Trump didn't do much for foreign relations.

I understand what you're saying. But Joe Biden is terrible with foreign relations. Trump is better. If Biden doesn't learn when to shut up, he could start a few wars.

Why can't we abolish political parties and those who are most qualified, just run?
