I normally spend my Sunday evenings regrouping from the weekend’s excesses but this week I am occupying myself with this. I was listening to Europe is Lost on Kate Tempest’s new album walking home ankle deep in the decaying red leaves of early November. I couldn’t stop listening to the track thinking fuck she is on the money with this one again. Impeccable observations. Instead of thinking about the week ahead, the meeting with Carol who keeps flirting with me and she’s fotty nine I’m thinking about the impending election across the pond in the home of the brave.
You know the game is bent when you are waving goodbye to one of the best commander and chiefs young American’s have ever seen. A leader. A winner. A man who is absent of ego and in his place come Wednesday you may be ushering in one of the biggest handpumps I have had the displeasure of hearing on my daily news feed.
I didn’t vote in Brexit. You chuffing what? You’re posting that shit on my Facebook and you didn’t bloody vote. It’s bad I know. I didn’t abstain, I intended to vote for Remain but I was delayed on a flight back from Nice and the polling stations had closed come 11pm when we landed. Striking air traffic controllers, the irony. A French Thatcher would sort that right out.
Walking at a leisurely pace listening to a song on social deprivation and my nation and continent losing its identity, losing the planet to what feels like an insatiable thirst for trivial pursuits I thought I could do a bit maybe help my pals in America. I like America. I like the people. Shoot me? One of them very nearly did one night in Houston. If even one person reads this and rethinks a vote for the Republican nomination on Tuesday then it will have been worth my while. I think we should get it out of the way early here the Republican presidential candidate is a disgusting egotistical, sexist, racist cunt.
The word cunt gets overused and my Gran reads this, but in this instance, it is the perfect description for a man, I wouldn’t piss on if he was going up in flames. Now, we all make mistakes from time to time that’s why pencils have rubbers on them. No not jonnies although that might be a good way of stemming the alarming tide of teenage pregnancies in my hometown. This mistake could be catastrophic not just for America but for us as a planet, as a team. When America gets angry people in other countries tend to die. That is a fact. This has happened for generations, what happens if a man who insights hatred in his own country when campaigning for president is successful? What if he is the person responsible for pushing the button? I for one have been researching a potential trip to Mars, I’d rather take my chances there. Unfortunately, Virgin don’t fly there yet. Pull your socks up Richard.
How in the modern world when we learn from mistakes of the past can we not see that this gobbler is in it for one reason only. For himself. A protest vote is a dangerous animal. I’m not clever enough to foresee the fall out from Brexit but personally from the information available to me I think the UK as a whole has scored an own goal. How can leaving the third biggest trading block in the world be a good thing? This came about partly because a lot of people were angry with the political class I understand that what I can’t understand is manipulating people for votes. Lying to them and pinching, stealing their vote. He is doing this everyday. How can electing an unstable bigot, sexual predator and compulsive liar be positive?
When I watch Trump at his rallies and in debates I don’t see a leader. A man who wants to improve the lives of everyone in America. A man with strong ethical values. A man who wants to address the poverty gap fund. No instead I see an absolute shower of shit. This is a man who does not pay his way, avoids tax and fucks up investments despite being given a war chest from his Daddy. He says he will be a good president because he’s good at business. Go suck a bag of dicks. He isn’t a self-starter. He didn’t work his way to the top. He didn’t invest and innovate. He inherited millions that his father made on the whole from governmental financing programs on the back of The Great Depression. You would think knowing this and being helped by his government, by the American Tax payers he would happily return the favour and pay his way. Only fair, right? No, instead he dodges tax and will not release his accounts to the public? You will be working for the hard-working people of America you soft cock. Fraud.
People of America. Who looks after people when they can’t look after themselves? The state has to be that person. I’m not a staunch lefty and I’m definitely not sat writing this in my Lenin pyjamas drinking my tea out of my Stalin Mug. I do though recognise from my own life experiences that people need help at times and sometimes they can’t help themselves. I do predict that a vote for the fuck trumpet will marginalise the most vulnerable people in American society further. He will not support increases in public funding his ‘excellent business skills’ suggest he will promote privatisation where he can and this is not a perfect model, it might make the rich richer but at what cost? I’m not advocating expanding Obama Care (although I think this would be a good idea), baby steps forward though not backwards. I’m not too au fait with all the issues America is facing at the moment as I do have to fit in 8 hours of football a week but I do know that this clown couldn’t give two fucks about helping rehabilitate people, improve the employment rate or addressing America’s piss poor record on the environment.
The only option in this amateur’s opinion is Clinton. She isn’t perfect and to be honest I feel sorry for the poor fuckers having to sift through her emails. Bet the agents doing that thought working for a government law enforcement agency would be more fun. Can’t imagine Bill will be in there saying he’s forgot his dry cleaning again. She is a sock puppet but not a criminal. Its either her though or the morally baron muppet.
Well that’s all I’ve got time for it’s hardly highbrow but it’s a plea from a lad on The Albion. It may feel like hate but it really is pity and frustration. Don’t let this pathetic excuse for a human win. Don’t let hate win. God willing he won’t.
