Normally in a wrestling or boxing match we have the champ (Trump) in one corner and the challenger (the Democrats) in another corner waiting to square off to fight which is our two party system. Now we have another challenger in this tag team match, billionaire Howard Shultz the former CEO of Starbucks. The gloves are off and trash talking has begun to hype the fight. Trump said Shultz " doesn't have the guts to run for president" Newly elected congresswoman, democrat former bartender Ocasio -Cortez says Shultz should work his way up the ladder like running for city councilman before running for president. lol...so funny. Actually there is no qualifications to run for president or congress just age and citizenship. Shultz says he's running as an independent because he is sick of the the democrats and republicans party's shenanigans. By the way Schultz is a Democrat. One reason he gave was Ocasio- Cortez trash talking of her wanting to raise the tax rate to 70%, by the way that's not going to work because most super rich are already taxed at a high rate on yearly income and capital gains taken in a particular year that they cash out of in a particular year, but not on the value of their assets that continue to go up in value, which still won't matter because they use other peoples money called leverage. His other reason is he is tired of career politicians and those in Washington who won't admit there is a problem with how they govern and spend. He goes on to say the government shutdown is a clear example that our two party system is a failure, it's all about one-upsmanship not what is good for the people or our country. He then goes on to say that people are tired of Trump's mouth and his tweeting.
Could the people get tired of our two party system foolishness ? Can an independent win in 2020? I believe the Deep State is worried. The ruling elites are painfully aware that the foundations of American power are rotting. The outsourcing of manufacturing in the United States and the plunging of over half the population into poverty will, they know, cannot be reversed. The soaring government deficit, now almost a trillion dollars a year thanks to the Trump administration’s massive corporate tax cuts, cannot be eliminated. Just as ominous as the visible rot is the internal decay. Among all social classes there is a loss of faith in the government, widespread frustration, a sense of stagnation and entrapment, bitterness over unfulfilled expectations and promises, and a merging of fact and fiction so that civil and political discourse is no longer rooted in reality. George Orwell wrote. “That is when its ruling class has lost its function but succeeds in clinging to power by force or fraud.” Our elites have exhausted fraud. Force is all they have left before the worldwide financial collapse.
The wall has to be a smokescreen for something else? Hmmm I wonder what it is? Could it be a way to pair down the rolls of the government? Time will tell, These shenanigan's in congress was a symptom of the fall of the Roman empire. See one big problem we have is there are no reasonable adults, just grown-ups acting like little kids, but a bigger problem is there are no adults who remember how we got into the Great Depression, and how the Great Depression felt, the generation of that time period is gone, just like God had to let the Israelites wonder in the desert for 40 years before entering the promised land for their disobedience and unbelief this time we can add pride and arrogance.
