It was to be expected, I suppose. Trump just got even more insane this last week. I mean, he’s totally nuts and he’s under a lot of pressure and his usual defense mechanisms (lying, distracting and making crap up) are now fully engaged in almost everything he does. So, he’s got nothing more to work with. We can SEE him even more clearly now. He’s getting stretched tighter and tighter and getting crazier every day.
I confess that suggesting injecting Lysol and drinking bleach achieved a whole new level of crazy but, honestly? How much more madness needs witnessing before they call for the straight-jackets? How much crazier does he have to get?
So, I am encouraged. Why? Because incrementally even the right-wing lunatics are seeing the scribbling on the wall. Even Fox has lessened their support. His ‘base’ is becoming less. According to some sources, and as determined by mid-term and congressional election results, his base has fallen officially by at least 5%. Given that he scraped into office by the skin of his teeth when he won, losing five percent almost guarantees a loss in November.
But it is NOT the official 5% that makes me feel better….it is the estimated 10 – 15% that are quietly re-thinking their allegiance and loyalty to such an incompetent POTUS. This guy is now acting crazier and crazier every day during his televised Covid-19 speeches. Even Bubba has to see Trump’s ‘distancing’ mentally on stage from his normal gang of stooges. The guy paces behind when someone else is speaking and looks like he isn’t listening one bit. Even Bubba has to be wondering if drinking bleach and injecting Lysol is really such a good idea when the top doctor follows Trump and immediately contradicts him on that same stage. Even Bubba (inside that thick, uneducated skull) has to be rethinking…..
The point: we may want to re-start our own inner-Bubba and review our acceptance of our own great leaders. You can always count on some deeply bigoted Conservative to jam both feet in their mouth with racist crap. Canada’s Lynn Beyak will give any Bubba a race for a swastika tattoo. As will Derek Sloan an MP from Ontario. But they are NOT real leaders. We have no REAL leaders. We really should get some, don’t you think? NOW is the time to make changes. NOW is the time to demand changes!
As the US moves to Ex-lax Trump in November, 2020, shouldn’t we be at least reviewing OUR choices for Canadian Grand Poobah? Our next election is in 2023. That is a bit far off but it would be good if we could use the time to do what Justin promised from day one – electoral reform. The system we have is simply NOT working. It didn’t work for the poor, dumb US Bubbas and it doesn’t work for Albertan or Ontarian Bubbas either. And it sure as hell doesn’t work for me.
Covid-19 exposed us to more than just a virus. It exposed the incompetence, elitism, ignorance and waste of resources our respective governments wallow in every day. We need to change that. If we employed just one electoral reform every election, we might have a chance at rescuing a system that has gone so far off track…..so far off track that the President of the United States is the official Clown Prince of the World and our own grossly inept Prime Minister looks good in comparison.
