Distraction. It’s a technique used in multiple applications: animal training, dealing with children, pick pocketing, magic, advertising. In politics it is even easier to use. The curtain is dropped, the wool securely over the eyes. How has this become so easy with a government led by the people, how have we become so easily distracted?
You could blame it on the media, but that is a vicious circle of a feedback relationship. Money, sure, but we the people allowed our representatives vote on and pass citizens United. Lobbyists, well anyone can be a lobbyist, just the ones that have the most time and money are more likely to get a meeting. The number of sources, the number of devices, the lack of time, the lack of interest, the overload of information, so many causes, so many issues, so little empathy, so much passion. So what to do.
I don’t have an answer, I struggle every day. Hell, every morning I wake up these days, my first thought is “who did he piss off now, what did the assholes do today?”. There is almost nothing that surprises me now (i’m still shocked about trumps comments on Monday), I almost anticipate waking up to a missile launch from North Korea.
Bottom line, we already know this guy is a lying, hot headed, ignorant, bigoted, misogynistic, well you know the description list. We also know the Russian collusion case is only getting more and more evidence and most likely has enough to throw his ass in a Siberian jail. We know he has pissed off the world. What should we focus on then?
Doing whatever we can, every day, with any tool you have to remove him from office. Aside from brinkmanship with North Korea, trying to dissolve NATO, insulting our immediate neighbours, praising dictators, this man has NO business having ANY power because he does NOT represent this country. A racist in the Whitehouse is not a sentence we should have to say.
Call you senator, regardless if they are an ass (i.e. mine is Ted Cruz), call your representatives, call your governor, call your mayor, call the Whitehouse. Make these six calls EVERY DAY AND DEMAND HE BE REMOVED NOW FOR MENTAL INCOMPETENCE!
THIS IS WHAT YOU CAN DO THAT CAN MAKE AN IMPACT!!!!
