Hillary, Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump — whether we like it or not — absolutely throw into question the very legitimacy of the concept itself of democracy as a governing system.
- Hillary Clinton is a felon. Nothing less. What she has done, if she were a Republican, would have disqualified her from public life more than twenty-five years ago. If she were a Republican she would be in prison for any number of things she’s done while on the loose in America. More to the point: she’s an idiot. When was the last time you heard her say something even vaguely intelligent?
- Bernie Sanders is an enthusiastic adherent to a belief system that’s so stupid, so incompatible with basic human decency, that his nitwittery and buffoonery should have disqualified him from public life, again, more than twenty-five years ago. If Hillary Clinton is an idiot, Bernie Sanders is an idiot’s idiot. A true 15-watt, dim bulb special.
- Donald Trump is a smooth-talking carnival huckster, who has said nothing whatsoever of substance concerning the vastly important questions, issues and problems that confront us as a result of the awful Obama Administration.
These three buffoons are nothing less than the three leading candidates to succeed Barack Obama, who is, himself nothing more than an empty-suit carnival fraud, who was willing and able to play off his skin color to seize the American Presidency, the most powerful position in the history of the world.
Clinton-Obama-Sanders-Trump — COST — are the ones the people have chosen, and are choosing — as happens in democracies — to occupy the Presidency. In other words: COST says one thing: The people (“democracy” means: “rule by the people”) are blithering idiots.
At this point, I can think of nothing in all this to indicate that democracy is even one tiny jot superior to a system in which shadowy men choose charismatic, attractive figureheads to “lead the people,” while they, the shadowy men, hold all the real power.
