No one has a clue who won the Presidential debate

A Winner? No One Knows

By Gary;

The dirty little secret of this thing we call "democracy" is elections are decided by people who could care less about public affairs.

I was camping this last weekend with a group. Try as I might many of the folks I spoke with did not have a clue what the Hell was happening in the world.

Talking to friends about NSA spying or the CIA running guns to Islamists got reactions ranging from "Get the Hell away from me" to "I don't believe you."

Simply, people only hear what they want to hear and block out all other data.

It is not that people are stupid (though I am open to that argument), rather they simply don't give a crap about the world outside their front door. As long as there is beer in the fridge, hot pizza and a game on TV the big events of the world have little to no interest to them.

So as to the debate. I felt Trump was a bit off his game and the Hildabeast did not have a seizure on live TV.

And there I stop because it does not matter what I say or what the Talking Heads say.

Sadly the debate largely does not matter. The election will be decided by voters who could not find Syria on a map and who think NAFTA is a new brand of coffee.

The uninformed will elect the next President.

How those people living in their isolated bubble view the debate and the election is beyond my power to fathom.

Perhaps the best appeal ever



Social Media is funny...
It’s often said not to talk about politics, or religion when at social gatherings…

However, during the election seasons people go crazy about people like Sarah Palin and Donald Trump. go figure

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told Fox News Friday that all of his policies were just “suggestions” that were subject to change once he actually became president.

Gary said...

Not ALL. He has been ultra firm on exporting jobs and immigration.

The GOP Congress has back-stabbed us. I do not trust any of them. They had their chance.
