I know that I’m not the only one suffering from this. I don’t need a poll or survey to validate the results either. There has to be an easier way to conduct an election without all the crap we have to deal with.
One could say that this particular election has been debated for almost 30 years. That’s taking into consideration the never-ending assault on Hillary Clinton from those on the Right who are obsessed with finding some conspiracy or scandal to take her down. Those attacks started on her from her time in Little Rock, AR as First Lady of Arkansas and they continue today.
I understand that people are angry, and this is an angry election. That said, don’t expect the change you want to come from someone (anyone) who is campaigning to run that very system you want changed. If there’s one thing we’ve seen, it’s that people are not going to willingly give up power once they’ve received it. Donald Trump isn’t going to change it, and neither is Hillary Clinton. Instead of trying to change the system, Americans need to learn how to manipulate the system in the same manner that politicians have.
We have elections every two years. If you don’t like the way things are going, then quit voting for incumbents regardless of the party. When Congress has an approval rating that hovers near single digits while also having a historical rate that hovers between 80% and 90%, then there appears to be a serious disconnect between the attitudes people have towards the politicians and system vs their actions on actually trying to change things up.
Quit complaining about the system and put forth an effort to change it. Otherwise, we’re going to be subjected to continued election seasons like this one. I, for one, am really tired of this crap and will do what I can to bring it to an end.
