The Donald Rally

The Donald Rally

A Poem by Gandré
"

Stupidity is everywhere.

"

 

Fork-tongued easy snake oil

spruikers

no-neck swindlers, pimps and

hookers

cooperate raiders, inside-traders

lotto-dreamers, Ponzi-schemers

restless hustlers, gangsters

cheats, recidivists, felons

mobbing the streets;

 

the danger is in our minds

it's the frequency of our time

theft, corruption-crimes

and all by greed designs.

So, today is the big day, and I woke to find that the circus is in town and here to stay for at least 4 years. Being from a circus town myself (Sarasota), I love a good show, but I'm not fond of clowns. They're disruptive. "the danger is in our minds, it's the frequency of our time" is spot on. This entire show has been bolstered by preying on the fears of Americans, and it has unfortunately been very successful in it's endeavors. Good write, and perfect for me to read today.

Politics is the art of finding out what the public wants and using that information so that politicians and not the public benefit from it. I think the left wing and the right wing belong to the same bird and it's a vulture, not an eagle, feeding on the carrion of believers and voters alike. Good to read your words again.

The update to this would be the Donald Presidency - and the your words would remain as poignant now as it did then ... :-) Nice to see you are still around .. !

Missed this, found it, and now cheer its every word! You've always defended your opinion without apology and here continue on all cylinders.

Now in hindsight, you could.. as many others did, see what was more than likely to land on every rooftop. Imagination and fortitude have always gone hand in hand in your nation, but.. seems they're now being diluted by hot air and a complete lack of respect for the population. Fool a great many, cheat as many, then - prove the others right. What a way to be remembered in the history books.

What we have here is a superb summation of the whole series of events. You are quite correct there is a danger.

A hell of a year.. exactly...It's like a nightmare becoming true.
you've certainly (and colorfully) pinned the tail on that donkey, which finally (i think) is most of us

It's not about helping them; it's about using them.
Now this is vintage Gandre! Vintage in the matter of the sentiments, adventurous in the tempo of the meter! The pace reminds me of a neo Beatnik feel...more pointedly a Hip-Hop feel...Gandre, American Black culture suits u well!!! Nice added dimension to your voice. Brava

I hope this man will help SOMEONE, someone who is not the Upper Class?!

I'm not very politically minded I'm afraid. I tend to believe politics are mostly a charade too many take seriously while dismissing the fact that politicians do not represent the masses. I'm reminded of a story about lemmings. Many people believe lemmings march to their deaths because of a story. But in fact, they do not.
Many people believe in one candidate over another because of a similar story via news or propaganda. But I believe the fact is something very different...something like wealth represents wealth to make the rich richer and to keep the poor uneducated and believing in myths. At any rate, it leaves them no alternative and thus, no viable means of shaping their own destiny. Yes, "greed designs"...and by the wealth won by their greed they bring those designs to fruition. Saddening actually. I enjoyed your viewpoint here. But I believe it evenly applies to the entirety of the political arena. Which is why I tend to dismiss politics in general.
