The Other Side Of The Coin

Just to show that I am not simply a Russiophile, doting on Putin, always knocking America (and let’s face it, there’s plenty to knock about there), I want to show you something that I think is important for America and for the rest of the world.

Donald Trump.  Hilary Clinton.  Is this, or is a choice between this or that, the very best that America has to offer?  That would be a very sad state of affairs, if either one of those two elitist clowns, buffoons and bitches got to assume leadership of the United states at year’s end.  Sad for America, and sad for the rest of the world.  We need to see a strong nation in the United States.  A strong nation but not an aggressive one along the lines that it has pursued for the past several decades.  We do not need an America that aspires to be world supremo.  I think I may have mentioned that before, several times.

So, is there any hope of achieving that?  Is there another leadership choice who could possibly float to the top of the heap of deadbeats lined up for the job?  Thankfully, I think there is.  And that has only really emerged in recent days, having just been revealed as a real contender by the diminishing of the shadows of the previous top two.

Have a look at this, and see if it doesn’t grab you.

For me at least, he is saying all the right things here.  He may have been doing that all along.  I just haven’t been paying all that much attention, but it seems that Americans have, and are warming up to his down to earth positioning.

You can read more in this RT article: ‘Shame on you’: Hillary Clinton flip flops, attacks Sanders on healthcare.  It is always best to get a more or less independent view from a distance on these things.

The Sanders plan would destroy private insurance and drug companies, who have donated millions of dollars to Hillary’s campaigns for senate and president.

He also wants to tackle pharmaceutical companies who have been accused by doctors of letting patients die for the sake of profit and donated more money to Clinton’s campaign than any other candidate from either party.

Drug and Pharmaceutical Companies are like a red rag to a bull to me.  Good on him, and stuff her.  That’s not to say that I wouldn’t mind seeing a female President.  It wouldn’t be a bad thing.  Just not that one.

So, Bernie Sanders?  Is he the man?  Is he the one who could lead America back onto some sort of straight path, make an honest woman of her, and turn her into a useful and helpful global citizen?

I would go so far as to say that if Bernie (no, not me, Bernie Sanders my namesake) is not elected President this time, then there is no hope whatsoever for the United States, or the world for that matter.

And, if he is elected?  Well, of course, America is still going to crash and burn just like every other modern economy, but it could be a fairer, more humane, more humble America, or whatever they call themselves afterwards, that rises from the ashes of the present bumbling monster.  And they may not be literal ashes but only figurative ones.

I do hope I will be around to see at least some of that play out.

  1. Yes, but he still wants Power. I distrust anyone who wants power. He might be saying all the right things, but Obama did that too and look what a wet rag he’s turned out to be.

    • Can’t argue with that, and I have no great hopes of him either, but he is the only ‘horse of a different colour’ in the race. I have a strange feeling he might make it, but a year is a long time, and assuming he doesn’t get himself scratched from the field (with a bullet or bomb, or something more subtle) in the meantime. A lot of people (and corporations are people we are told) have a great deal of money invested in the game.
