I’ve had about all I can take of corrupt party politics drowning out the voice of millions of people in favor of corporate greed and warhawks. I’m done toeing the line and bowing my head to a party that doesn’t give one flying red fuck about me or anyone like me, and merely pays us lip service while sucking billionaire cock for campaign contributions. I’m over the Democratic Party. They can go to hell!
I haven’t decided exactly when I will do it, but I plan to change my party affiliation to No Party Preference. I keep seeing people on Facebook saying to stay until the DNC in Philadelphia in July, but I fail to see how my name on their membership roles will make more of a difference than my name being missing after so many years of it being taken for granted. So, I’m still going back and forth over whether to wait or whether to do it now.
You can probably already guess that I do not plan to vote for Her Royal Bitchiness in November. Call me sexist all you want, but I call it as I see it and she’s a lying, cheating, conniving bitch. I haven’t spent the past year preaching the virtues of being true to oneself to my ten-year old son only to bow my head and compromise my convictions just to vote for a woman I believe embodies everything that is wrong with America and the Democratic Party. What would that tell my child, if I were verbally telling him to do one thing and then my actions spoke the opposite? I want him to know that even when the consequences for doing the right thing are painful, you stick to your guns and do it anyway. Only chickenshit cowards cave to peer pressure to compromise their moral integrity for someone who does not deserve it. One thing you can’t call me is a coward.
I am more than slightly pissed at our President. Of course, that’s nothing new. I’ve been upset at him a lot, lately. This man who preached a lot of the same things Bernie did on the campaign trail was willing to put elderly people’s Social Security up to be cut all to appease the Republicans. This man who preached “radical” leftist ideas in 2008 nominated a conservative Supreme Court justice in an effort to assuage the Far Right. Now, this same man has compromised his integrity once again to place his support behind the most corrupt presidential candidate in American history. I have absolutely zero respect for him, anymore. I only have one thing to say to him: “Fuck you, Mr. President.” Actually, I’d probably have to revise that: “Respectfully, Mr. President, FUCK YOU!”
