27 August 2016. Our FIRST Duty as Christians…

00 moscow bp panteleimon patr tikhon quote 280816

______________________________

“All are brothers”… that’s why all Christians… nay, all DECENT PEOPLE of whatever belief… must reject Chilly Hilly, Trump the Chump, and Scary Gary. None of them believe that.

NONE OF THEM.

Let that sink in. None of them think that we owe anything to anyone else. NONE OF THEM. Let this sink in, too… the candidate closest to the Christian POV put forth by Patriarch St Tikhon is Jill Stein, a secularist Jew. None of the others believe that we must help the weaker amongst us… they all believe that the only responsibility of the state is to help the rich and bloated.

Christians must vote for Stein as she’s the only candidate that enunciates even part of what Christians believe. All the others have capitulated to and wholeheartedly support objective evil (remember, HH labelled Capitalism a horrendous fraud). If nothing else, Christians can’t support that; we must support objective good whenever we can, wherever we can, and in what measure we can. Vote for Stein… the only objectively good candidate.

We’re Christians; that’s what we should do…

22 August 2016. Pogo Redux… “We Have Met the Enemy and He is Us”… DON’T Enable the Duopoly

00 putin national review cover 110816_1

Look at this cover… it’s proof that the “conservatives” and Chilly Hilly are on the same page. Do you truly want to vote for that? I’d say this, “The USA has thousands of victims from drone strikes in the Third World. Did VVP do the same?” Yes… did VVP do likewise? He did NOT… ergo, American conservatives lie on that… so, what else are they lying about?

______________________________

I saw this on FB:

By any reasonable definition, Democrats are now the more conservative of America’s two parties. They are more interested than Republicans are in conserving America’s international relationships, cultural norms, and political and economic institutions as they are.

Here is the article referenced.

Let’s keep it simple… the Democrats and Republicans are simply two sides of the same rotten Neoliberal coin. The worst of the lot are those who label themselves “liberal” and “conservative” (“progressives” aren’t far behind, though). It’s now at the point where there isn’t a tuppence-worth of difference between Rod Dreher and Hillary Clinton. NONE. Have a care with “conservatives”… they’re either liars or dupes. Look at the National Review cover… they’re ready to endorse Hillary. As for “Libertarians”, they’re nothing but anarchists in three-piece suits. They want to empower the rich and powerful, in hopes that some of the scraps may fall their way. The present American political apparat is broken. I have no bloody idea what shall replace it in the end. The country runs by itself… but that can’t persist. Power DOES abhor a vacuüm. Either the oligarchs or the people will win. Clinton, Trump, and Johnson are the candidates of the oligarchs. Stein is the candidate of the people. Yes… there are nutters amongst her backers… but one can put up with that far more easily than oppression from the One Percent. There’s no perfect faction or candidate.

Your vote does count. Vote for Stein…

20 August 2016. Have a Care With Self-Described “Greens”

00 cat dr jill 200816

______________________________

I intend to vote for Jill Stein in November. I believe that she’s the best out of the four major candidates on offer. However, most “Greens” set my teeth on edge. I find them pedantic, conformist, and intolerant of anyone with any misgivings about their movement. I ran an experiment… to be frank, I expected that those who call themselves “liberals” and “progressives” would be less than appreciative of any criticism of their movement (even criticism without negativity). To say that my expectations were correct is an understatement. I shall speak frankly… too many Greens march in lockstep… all too many are conformists (not to the Corporate Model, to be sure, but still conformists).

One of the major lacks in the Green Platform is that it’s clear that there’s been little (if any) input from white working-class people. I believe that most white working-class people reject Greens because of their stridency. Also, for “Liberals” and “Progressives”, we’re to blame for everything that’s happened to their “minority mascots”. Mind you, I intend to vote for Stein… objectively, she’s the best candidate. However, I remember a Green throwing water on me when I used to smoke (I was outdoors)… I remember their smarmy and self-serving outburst. I fear that Dr Jill may lose this November because her followers are too often pigheaded, judgemental, and intolerant. This is what I see from my vantage point…

I’d like to see a change… but there won’t be one until Jill Stein engages ALL of us as equals (and not as objects)… just sayin’…
