Pushing Joe Biden is the last straw.
It’s as if they WANT another four years of Chump.
Screw the false bravado of a free country and democratic election process. Presidents are chosen by corporations and back door political gaming for the benefit of said corporations and lining the pockets of those whose pockets are already overflowing.
I’ve believed in the system. I’ve believed in the process.
I have struggled these past couple of elections to hold on to hope that issues would be resolved. Forced myself to think positive. Worked to encourage voting as a way to be heard.
It’s not. It’s useless.
Party primaries are pointless. The DNC pushes whoever THEY want without regard for what is good for the people. They push what is good for their corporate cronies. Screw everyone else.
And I don’t think this is any different than it had ever been. I think that all this time, all these years, all these elections – they’ve just offered us the illusion of choice. And that illusion has been shattered in recent elections. The curtain has fallen and people are seeing what’s really been going on back there all this time. And they are mad. They are disenfranchised. They are hopeless. And they are DONE.
And now, I am one of them. I am done now.
I’ve been a registered Democrat since I first registered to vote, save a few times when I switched to No Party Affiliation. But I am done now.
The two party system was never meant to be and it is a travesty that both of these parties put the party (and its corporate ties) above the country.
$1400 a month rent for a two-bedroom? $7.25 minimum wage? Who’s that working for?
I have a Bachelor’s degree. I have student loans. I grew up being told a degree basically guaranteed a minimum baseline annual income of $50,000. It does not.
What it does guarantee is a lifetime of servitude struggling to live while trying to pay down those loans (and getting basically no where on that goal). Not being able to buy a home because student loan payments destroy the debt-to-income ratio.
I don’t take vacations. I don’t buy the newest, greatest, latest anything. I don’t eat avocado toast. I don’t buy fancy coffees. I don’t fill my closet with designer brands. Hell, I don’t even get to the hairdresser more than once a year or so and that’s for a $15 haircut!
I believed it could get better. I really did.
