A fine proposal

Just because stuff                  


Jonah Goldberg writes:

“For many years,” Donald Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon, “our country has been divided, angry and untrusting. Many say it will never change, the hatred is too deep. IT WILL CHANGE!!!!”

As persuasive as the ALL CAPS are, I have my doubts.

Put aside Trump’s specific shortcomings for the moment. The presidency has become ill-suited to the task of unifying the country, because the presidency has become the biggest prize and totem in the culture war. Like the religious wars between Catholics and Protestants in England, if one side controls the throne, it is seen as an insult and threat to the other. And whoever holds the throne is seen as a kind of personal Protector of the Realm.

The political parties have been utterly complicit in the process. Exploiting social media and other technologies, Republicans and Democrats shape their messages around the assumption that they — and they alone — have legitimate ownership of America’s authentic best self. That’s why whichever party is out of power promises to “take back America” — as if the other side were foreign invaders.

Barack Obama was elected in 2008 in no small part to fulfill the promise of his 2004 Democratic Convention keynote address: to banish the slicing and dicing of America into Red States and Blue States.

The colors of the electoral map may have been smudged and scrambled over the last eight years, but the underlying polarization Obama inherited from George W. Bush only intensified on his watch. Trump will be the third president in a row to promise to unite the country, and he will almost certainly be the third in a row to fail. [ETC]

I have, a few times over the years, hyperbolically offered that what this nation needs is a benevolent dictator, and volunteered myself as being ideal for the job.  Like, for example, since California's prisons are choked with felons sporting gang tats, which membership require that newbies murder someone, I promised to use that prima facie evidence and execute them all for murder-one.  Now!  Stuff like that.  Harsh for the perps, good for the commonweal. Well, guess what?  It's like I've invoked string theory and created  that very world in the multiverse (which is where we are right now. Else you wouldn't be reading this, and Donald Trump wouldn't be President elect) Oui?

So, what Jonah says makes all the sense in a world
a world that had not yet experienced the horrors of Clinton, and Obama occupations.  Nor been dragged into a one world government vortex by the Bushmen.  This, today, is that world.  I will posit again that Mr. Trump is the only person on earth who can assume that roll of benevolent dictator, and save our nation from governance by the United Nations (again, hyperbolically). Even if he doesn't clean out Cally prisons.

You know I'm right. That very moment when the final election results were announced we witnessed an explosion of green slimy ectoplasm—the very personification of evil— Hillary  adherents writhing in twisted agony just like ... like in Ghost Busters.  You know I'm right. So, this avenging angel, Trump, will hopefully do what he has to do.  Eviscerate the infrastructure that's allowed people like Obama to seize power behind a bodyguard of media lies, misdirection, and pure evil. 

Sunshine is just around the corner.
