Wondering Thoughts of a Native Knight

This this blog is about my thoughts on spiritual, political and everyday things that are going on in the world.  I thought I comment about the political mess this presidential race has become. I hadn’t posted until now because I am fully and completely astounded by all those who are running.

I know everyone is hollering about the Republicans and how they are making a fool of themselves and concentrating more on slamming each other than they are on the important things they should be putting their effort into and talking about.  However, if you look at the Democrats they aren’t doing much better.  They started out looking great, their rebates were very grown up and respectful of each other and as the presidential race has gone along their actions have gone down hill.  They are now spitting out hate towards each other, towards the Republican candidates, and concentrating less on the issues.

We started out with ranging from Trump who incited hate and violence, he never really spoke on any issue just spoke in circles about nothing, to Bernie who was love and peace covering as many issues as he can without slamming any of his opponents, even going out of his way to speak out to defend Hillery Clinton at one of their debates.

Now?  Now both sides are slamming each other and talking circles around the issues.  Even Bernie, who I like by the way, is talking smack about Hillery Clinton and Trump.  He is talking circles around the issues when asked questions.  Such as he was asked recently about his views Combating Climate Change to Save the Planet,  he started out just fine with a very logical; “The scientists are virtually unanimous that climate change is real, is caused by human activity and is already causing devastating problems in the United States and around the world. And, they tell us, if we do not act boldly the situation will only become much worse…”  went on to say we needed to tax fuel companies more and fine them harder for the errors they are making.  The interviewer asked him: “what that make truckers, who we rely on for our food and products here in America. Suffer and make our prices for products and our fuel prices go up.”  From their Bernie turned into a Bully, which I did not like.  He wouldn’t answer the question that was asked of him straight on, he would only repeat; “The scientists are virtually unanimous that climate change is real, we have to make drastic changes for our children and grandchildren so they have something to look forward too and a land to live on.  Climate change is real…”  He started getting red in the face over this.  Yes, it is an important subject, but does becoming a bully over a subject like this instead of answering logically and clearly any better then ranting and raving over “we are going to make this American better”?

So we have to choose between Trump = Hitler  – Bernie = JFK Because honestly if you do your research Bernie is very much like JFK.

You don’t have to take my word for it, Look up his voting record in the House and the Senate, where he supported civil rights, labor rights, federal aid to education, public housing, foreign aid, minimum-wage increases, extended unemployment insurance, Social Security expansion and – with few significant exceptions – the liberal agenda of his day.  Or Consider how William F Buckley Jr.’s National Review — which despised unionized workers, civil rights marchers, and every other liberal constituency — assessed JFK.

 

You can compare JFK’s issues with Bernie Sander’s Issues, just keep in mind the difference in era.

Compare Trump to Hitler?  You tell me –hitler-donald-trump

 

But, I digress – putting the two comparisons aside, what has American politics come to these days nothing more than WWF smack down minus the ring and entertaining moves, or a reality tv show that the American People glamor to watch every weeknight between 9 and 10 P.M because it is too racy to put on during prime time?

What are your thoughts on what is happening to the Presidential race this year?
