Are Americans Screwed?

We don't have much of a choice in terms of the candidates presented to us in this upcoming presidential election. We have to choose between a corporate sellout who pretends to care and a corporate sellout who says we don't need to care.

Then there's the third party candidates that no one has ever heard of, and that no one is ever going to vote for, because no one wants the OTHER corporate sellout to be elected to such an extent that they are going to vote for the corporate sellout. It really is a sad situation.

The economy is going down the pooper, and the challenger sellout is blaming the incumbent sellout for it.

Each one of the sellouts is promising fantasies they will never fulfill. Meanwhile, we the working serfs are stuck paying taxes to support corporate welfare and probably pre-funding the next foreign war of aggression, while the ultra-rich pay a lower effective tax rate. As a result the wealthy are getting wealthier and the rest of us are getting poorer.

What can we do? Not much. We are just screwed.

Bread and games. We need bread and games.

  1. I'm not worried, because it's only when people don't see it coming that something horrible happens. We've survived sub-par presidencies before.

  2. Or Canada. Even when Canada is doing better than the US, it's still Canada.
