Did IQs just drop sharply while I was away? – Ripley (Aliens, 1986)
Unfortunately, this is a question I ask myself everyday since after the Election. The more I see how Trump supporters are outing themselves for the misled minions of a mutant Cheeto with a toupee, the more I wonder how far has the national IQ dropped. People, Idiocracy wasn’t supposed to be a documentary of what is to come, but rather a funny movie. No longer is it funny. It’s depressing because the very aspects of the culture of Idiocracy is becoming more prevalent these days than ever before. Trumps election to the head seat of the United States just proves how close we are to an Idiocratic dystopia.
I leave you, my wonderful readers, with this example of anti-science rhetoric we will most likely have to deal with for four years. Buckle up, it’s going to be one hell of a ride!
Jill Stein for President, some Libertarian for either Senate or House, and for local government I wrote in Aleister Crowley, Ragnar Lodbrock and myself. I kept true to my plan of NOT voting for ANY of the Kleptocrat party or commonly known individually as the Democrat and Republican parties.
Of course, there will plenty of people saying that I wasted my vote today. No, I didn’t. I voted based on my conscience rather than the rehashed nonsense of voting for the “lesser of two evils”. If more people surpassed that mentality, we would have more Third Parties in seats of government today. However, the Republicans and Democrats work in tandem to make sure that Third Party voices, such as Jill Stein, be drowned out. In fact, both Obama and Romney in 2012 both had NOTHING to say when Jill Stein was arrested for demanding that she be able to debate the Kleptocrats. She has that right as do ALL Third Parties have that right to debate the Kleptocrats on the issues at hand. This is why real change will never occur until people in this country change their mindset from lesser of two evils to Third Parties can create that change.
So come 2020, we’ll see if more people wake up instead of slumber peacefully ignoring the Kleptocrats stranglehold on power in the United States. The more ignorant people remain, the longer the hold on power is. Unfortunately, my optimism 8 years ago has waned. Now, pessimism reigns supreme as I watch people debase themselves with classless acts like booing a candidate they dislike on their way to vote to out and out violence or threats there of. Maybe, just maybe I’ll pleasantly surprised, but I’m not counting on it.
May the Gods keep our country peaceful during this heated time.
