Reagan and Trump

So far, The Libidinous Visitor has done nothing and has said nothing in his campaign that the untouched Republican saint, Ronald Reagan, didn't say or do in either of his campaigns. The people quoted above could have been talking to a reporter in 1980. In its perpetual campaign to cast Reagan in marble and set him atop a shining city on a hill, the "Republican establishment" has sancitified amiable duncehood, smiling deceit, and personal political nihilism presented as patriotism of the highest order. And now Luntz is nervous because people have taken this entire beatification process to heart and applied it to someone Frank Luntz thinks is an impure vessel?

So I guess we have to vote for Democrat fascists.

Get two-point simple score voting and get rid of the murderous mafia two-party. (You really want "Jeb" vs. Hillary?)

Give five or four votes to as many candidates as you wish!

Vote artfully, not "honestly".

(No more than 20 candidates. If you mistakenly give both a four (4) or a five (5) vote, it gets counted as a four (4)).

GET RID OF THE MILITARY/MAFIA two-party (really one-party).

NO FUCKING MORE!!!!!

Biden vs. "Jeb"? Really???

Well wtf do you expect? You're playing in a rigged game; this blog refuses to acknowledge that fact.
This blog continues to extol a functional "2" party system. And, claim to be progressive!
This defies all reason in lew of the evidence.
But then the body politic defies all reason and reality extant, no?
I only remain to be an irritant and provocateur to reason and reality...

They don't need to be "promoted." They need to be made possible.

You do know that, right?

This blogger spent much of 2012 blogging the virtues of Jill Stein, this year I am for Bernie, but I assume that everyone will vote according their best judgment. Nobody at Corrente is playing enforcer.

It turns out that emergent party candidates CAN win under our present system, which explains how Richmond, CA is controlled by the Green Party, there are local Green Party elected officials scattered across the nation, there is a Socialist Alternative member of Seattle city council, and Independent Party officials scattered across Connecticut.

You want to blog about some emergent party candidate? you are free to do so, or you can continue to troll my posts, whatever you prefer.

Thank You, I think he's just cranky today;) Then again he doesn't live in the New Amerika. I'll be voting Green myself.
