Whoa! That didn’t take long. A friend has already objected to my using the term buffoons to describe the folks to the south. Fair enough, but I’ll stand by the word because there are way too many blockheads in the U.S. today – sorry folks, but most of you dolts are voters siding with the Republican Party these days – and it’s clear you’ve given up on your country. That makes you a buffoon in my books.
Why should I respect you or show you any admiration anymore? And I say "given up" because no one seems to care about the once mighty and formerly important USA. All you chumps seem to do is argue over what party should be in power. And that is so sad. You’ve devolved to a point where you place cash before country.
Let me ask you a question. Has anyone on either side of the political fence stopped to consider: so, what happens if the other side does get in? I mean seriously. You ought to stop and think about that for a second or two. If you’re a Republican, will your country up and die if a Democrat gets in? Don’t think so. And if you’re a Dem, will the GOP destroy the U.S.A? Nope. Seems to me that history shows there have been periods of great growth when both Democratic or Republican presidents ruled the land. So what’s the worst that can happen, folks? And based on that, why don't you start considering your country, not your party.
Sadly, this is a question that’s avoided by stalwarts on both sides. And the fight goes on while the country’s reputation sinks further and further. In my nation, Canada, a new poll has just revealed that our view of the United States has sunk to its lowest level in years. Seems I’m joined by my countrymen who don’t like buffoons either. The poll tracks a similar trend in the U.K., France, Germany, Japan and Australia.
The U.S.A. is clearly going to “hell in a hand cart”, and this journey is aided and abetted by the dunderheads who rule the land, like Trump and McConnell. I can only hope that sane people in the GOP (please tell me there are some!) will see the chicanery being offered for what it is and decide to put their country before their politics.
Oh, and by the way, while I confess to being a political junkie, I must acknowledge I don’t know where the rule is harbored that confirms a U.S. president may support the nomination of a justice entering the Supreme Court and then have that individual stay in power for the rest of their lives. These days, that can mean 40+ years. That’s a hell of a long time for the mood of a president - liberal or conservative - to dictate. Isn’t it time to re-write the rules? Like, maybe having Supreme Court Justices only having an 8 year term, beginning when a new president takes over. Then, at the end of the President’s term in 4-8 years, they must vacate their seat. Now, at the risk of losing good, experienced men and women, I also propose that they can run again, attempting to re-up their seats on the bench. Not only will this limit the silly 40+ year potential reign, but cause the justices themselves to be more diligent, knowing they'll be voted out in less than 8 years if they're not on top of the nation's mood. And along with this will come re-solidified respect for an important American institution.
I’m just saying…
