- Please let this be
over tonight. Please let this be over tonight. Please
let it be clear with no room for a recount. Please.
I've never, ever, ever been more annoyed at an
election cycle in my fucking life. And as I've been
telling anyone who'll listen online: Trump losing
tonight simply kicks the can down the road a few more
years. We have entered a very, very, very bad phase in
our union with a broken media and complete fucking
idiots running the show. I have no hope for that
changing in the future, I do truly believe
I will not end my life in this country.
I will move and my final sunsets will not be in
the United States. That is not a "threat" if
Trump wins, it's simply a statement of how I feel
about this country. I don't believe any one candidate
will destroy America... no it will be a movement of
idiots armed with fake news that will be our downfall.
We're here. Trump shouldn't be a candidate let alone
the nominee. Alas, we are here. An obvious con-man
tricking every supporter who actually isn't even that
good of a con-man. So, the election...
- I find myself
playing devil's advocate with everyone. Democrats are
far too certain this will be a landslide and Trump
supporters are literally being lied to. The same thing
happened in 2012. I watched Fox News and all
of their polling was skewed and their pundits were
predicting a ROMNEY landslide and it ended up being
only 2 states going red in comparison to 2008. The
core voting blocks don't change that much. That should
continue here... but there's a huge issue: the very
fact that we're talking about a Trump presidency means
absolutely FAKE news works. The things people
hate about Hillary are largely bullshit. I don't like
Hillary as a candidate, as a politician, etc... but
she's clearly qualified and will be a great president.
She does her homework, she knows her
- ...but when you
talk to Hillary haters? They quote actual bullshit.
Just made up buillshit. And Trump gains traction on
that SAME bullshit. He says whatever the crowd
wants to hear, then says the opposite to the next
group. People compare the FUCKING VIDEO and it
makes no difference. Facts don't matter... nothing
matters. The media has made a very
SERIOUS position into a reality show, therefore a
reality show spokesman somehow fits. It's dangerous to
such a degree, I'm exhausted saying it. I'm just
watching it unfold now. Saving my pennies and mentally
preparing to move on. It's like being in the midst of
a bad relationship: you may not be leaving now, but
you're watching some shit unfold that ain't gonna work
out too well. This broken media system is the death of
all of us, but it's hitting the US first and foremost.
You have an entire party intent on breaking the
government to prove it doesn't work. Breaking public
schools, breaking every program, breaking diplomacy.
This doesn't end well. And you have an electorate who
thinks Donald Trump is gonna "drain the swamp" and
help the working class. Really? This New York
businessman who LITERALLY sits on a Golden Throne? I
almost want him to win just to watch their faces when
he DOESN'T do ANYTHING he said he would and just helps
himself and his business interests. Duh.
I don't believe he will win. I can't see him
running the table on the states he needs to win. I
think the Comey bullshit this past week will keep her
from getting a strong 300+ electoral college win, but
I still think she wins it with a couple states to
spare... but I'm not even excited about this
reality. The GOP will run a normal candidate in 2020
and Hillary is gonna get eviscerated. The economy is
gonna do a downturn (just the cyclical reality) and
she will bear the brunt of that. And what happens if
someone comes along who is actually evil and not just
a con-man saying stupid shit? Someone with an actual
agenda and who can put a team around him to really get
things done? That's what scares me, not Trump. In
fact, I could argue that Trump winning might actually
be a wake-up call to his supporters because he
WILL let them down almost upon
- ...then again they
would find a way to blame everyone but him. There's
fake news to comfort them and it's not going away
anytime soon. Politics is like sports now and it's
just awful. Actually that isn't even true. How the
fuck did the GOP get away with not even addressing the
Supreme Court?!?!?! How the mother-fuck is that
possible? Someone died, Obama nominated someone and
they ignored it.
- ?!?!?! And if
Trump somehow wins they will be rewarded.
Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat? If this had happened in the 1950s
there would've been a COUNT on the screen every
goddamned night. For every fucking day they didn't do
their job. There would've been no fear that they would
be called BIASED, they would come back with:
WE REPORT THE JOB YOU'RE DOING.
AND YOU'RE NOT DOING YOUR JOB.
Period. End of story.
- Now? Can't do
anything that might looks partisan. Can't
report what's ACTUALLY HAPPENING if it makes
ANYONE look bad. Even if one side is bad.
FUCK YOU MEDIA. I can't even be mad at
the GOP! They figured it out! Now, it may bite them in
the ass when Hillary gets elected and they lose the
whole goddamn court but knowing them? They'll find a
way to politicize that to their advantage too because
the media (and the Dems) are a bunch of fucking
pussies. It makes me absolutely crazy.
- Even crazier? I
have barely mentioned a word about the candidate I'm
supporting for president in the election, tonight.
Wow. I do it periodically on Facebook, but
I guess for The Journey I'm doing more of a time
capsule of feelings for all-time and I have very
little feelings about Hillary Clinton. I don't
hate her, I just don't like her. I turn the
sound off during speeches. I turn it back up for
interviews! But then she says some formulaic shit
(which yes, I understand why she is stuck in that
cycle - she's put up with her words being fucked with
her whole life, in a man's world, etc) and I zone out.
It's her time, and I'm ok with that and I know
she'll at least fight for the most BASIC human
rights but the bar is so low now. We aren't
progressing anymore. We aren't achieving. We're trying
to hold the fabric of this union together in the midst
of absolute Idiocracy. THAT is what concerns me far
more than who holds the position of
- But I am
passionate about this:
LET THIS FUCKING END TONIGHT.
I can't do any more of this shit. It has to end.
If there's a recount or if Trump doesn't concede oh my
fucking GOD. I think he will probably do it
tomorrow and start Trump TV or some shit. He ain't
- ...but yes, we
should be able to avoid insanity this time. And with
that rousing endorsement, I'll end this entry with me
- No inspirational
music. Nothing fancy, just the file. This is the most
obvious fucking vote in the history of being
Americans. Literally everyone who doesn't fill
in this hole is so woefully ignorant to the job of
presidency I weep for our future. And as
I just explained, I'll be doing that no matter
what, because this will still be an issue in
