Fear and Loathing this Election Cycle!

By Alberto Pupo

Last night’s Presidential debate, was an exercise in futility. This is the culmination of almost two decades now of a country which has been soaking up Reality tv, combined with a never-ending war of error. Now after last night it is clear that this election cycle is an 14264908_1219415344798946_1590424831154924402_nunmitigated disaster and we the people have let it get to this point.

Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton is a gift handed to us by the 1% that runs this Nation. Because it is a long running joke among the “elite” that Americans only want to engage in their viewing of the Bachelorette, Dances With Stars, Survivor, etc. That the game of politics is something that they have no time for.

Do Not Give in to the Fear in 2016…

By Alberto Pupo

The new year has arrived. After a long drawn out orgy of polls and Trump madness, this year an ultimate decision will be made as the Obama era comes to a close and we begin anew with a blank slate. The choices this year are interesting because for the first time in forever? (Don’t sue me Disney), the Progressives of America finally have a legitimate 12230914_1651822955086556_1989907803_ncandidate who wants to serve the people for a change. However all is not rosy as there are still pockets resistant to change and a “safe candidate” standing in the way of true positive change coming to America.

Bernie Sanders must prevail. Some way somehow the United States cannot afford to allow the golden opportunity to slip away.   If things go well at the ballot box we have the possibility to have a Middle Class resurgence in America. With a resurgent Middle Class (while this will not herald the end of inequality), it will be a shift in the right direction after Continue reading

The Muslims are coming quick hide behind the Donald’s wall!   It started in Paris and really picked up steam in Cali, What was once just  a varsity league Al Queda” has now become a bonafide threat… the Country is in Defcon 6 and the Neo Crusaders are chomping at the bit to invade the Holy Land for more crude. Meanwhile the Media is engaging in what they U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks at a rally in Sarasota, Floridado best fear mongering and polls about how we have been fear mongered? Is this the new normal in America? To see a Caliphate underneath every bed? Meanwhile America crumbles and Corporations continue to their own brand of domestic terrorism.

GOP Debate or Funeral?

By Alberto Pupo

The show is officially underway. The GOP debate kicked with a bang. In a stage with 10 men there was not a single valid idea. As each man involved tried to pander to a different segment of the base. This debate however did prove that the Republican party is not a rising force, but it is a party that is clearly going the way of the Whigs right into extinction.

 

The debate was full of bluster and Hilary bashing. Among the verbal fireworks the substance of any sort of coherent governing policy was lost amidst the sea of bragging and vague promises. Conservatism as a philosophy inherently demands that nothing changes therefore we continue to get a retread of tired ideas sometimes interrupted by the dead_gopnaive and contradictory talk of the non-politicos in this case Ben Carson and Donald Trump. The average American however was hard pressed to find any new ideas or policies that may actually prove to be helpful. As a party though it is clear that the unity which is a Republican characteristic was not evident in any sort of coherent party plank and this can prove to be fatal in a general election.

 

Pundits will try to declare winners, but on this evening there were no winners but instead degrees of losers. Which individual managed to have the most credible responses to Continue reading

What is behind the “Trump Surge”?

By Alberto Pupo

Trump leads the polls! Trump continues to gain a following! The Donald Trump lead and surge is indicative of a couple of realities when it comes to the current state of the GOP. The first reality is that it shows that Americans will do whatever it takes to move away from a politician. The second reality is that the GOP is a party that is truly on its deathbed as it cannot unite under any sort of leadership. These two realities are part of the New America where being a politician is a liability and where it might be necessary to establish I-Hate-Politicsanother major party.

 

Politics, the word itself creates instant nausea among the average America. It conjures images of wealthy, well groomed liars making elaborate promises that they never keep. Our Nation has had a long falling out with politics and every new generation politicians become more reviled. Instead heroes and idols are sought in different industries and fields, Movies, sports, music, business, science our society looks to certain individuals from each of these fields in hopes of some sot of guidance in hope of “straight talk”. Trump is a man whose political ideology is ever changing with the wind. A narcissistic individual whose basis for policy ideas is to rely on his “gut” rather than any coherent sort of philosophy. This speaks to the average American who lacks any Continue reading
