Political Satire, The American Presidential Race 2016

Lingering Question

How are these two people the only two choices for a country that has been the dream?

How would the court jester of the royal courts of earlier centuries straddle the fine line of opportunities to expose real instances of the absurd, the immoral, the hypocrisy, with out ending up with his head chopped off or imprisonment.

The Constitution.

The United States of America, may have a lot of things wrong with it, but it is still the best place to live in the world, because of the freedoms it holds for all those who wish to grasp them.

The constitution written by men of their time showed brilliance, resolve and a sense of a country's destiny that is a model of God's idea for bringing all people's together for one common goal.

To love and embrace all human kind.

What happens after President Obama

How does eight years of President Obama, an American whose biracial by genetics and birth but lives as a black man, produce only two candidates of such quality, now running for the greatest leadership role in the United States.

What makes it possible?

We witnessed an impossibility take place in American history, nay in the Western world of superpowers when President Obama took office not just for one term but for two terms as the first black (biracial) male president.

Facts to ponder.

Martin Luther King, the author of the acclaimed, 'I have a dream speech', was shot dead in 1968 -40 years before he was first sworn into office, 48 years at the end of his two terms.

John F Kennedy, shot dead in 1963 - 45 years before he was first sworn into office, 53 years at the end of his two terms.

Malcom X was shot dead in 1965 - 43 years before he was first sworn into office, 51 years at the end of his two terms.

After the Civil Rights Movement of 1954-1968 at it height, approximately 40 years.

Observations as to why he was elected.

President Obama's racial makeup endeared him to two major races in America and the world, and those who wanted to vote for a black man did so and those who wanted to vote for a man with a white parent did, since he could identify with both races through first hand experience..

The fact that he was a lawyer and went to some recognizable schools for higher education endeared him to the folks that wanted brilliance in the White House to represent the country around the world.

The fact that he was relatively a young man endeared him to those who wanted to be able to say a man who could relate was in the White House.

Why do you think after President Obama, America seems so divided?

  • We swept it under the rug
  • It was just under the surface and seething all the while
  • It has nothing to do with President Obama
  • just the nature of politics
See results without voting

Memorable

What is the uppermost memory of either one of these two candidates for office?

Hillary, falling down and knocking herself out when giving testimony at the hearings, conveniently having amnesia.

Donald, wanting to patent "you're fired"

There are others like,

Hillary assuming she had the black vote 8 years ago because of her husband.

Donald about the pageants he financed

Hillary on standing by her man after the public cheating relationship with an intern

Donald on building walls and immigration but most 2 of his 3 wives were / are of immigrant birth and naturalized US citizens

And many more, just listen to their debates and speeches.

But will they like JFK quoted be asking, "What can I do for my country".

What do they stand (would die) for..

Hillary Clinton versus Donald Trump

What do these people stand for, who do they represent and what is their philosophy in leading the United States of America forward into the 22nd century and beyond.

These two candidates are well into their sixties, retirement age, yet on the American political stage they behaved like teenagers with bad manners and disrespectful not only of themselves but to the American people.

Does anyone really know what they will be capable of in the White House?

What platform's have they made memorable other than we will make America great again?

  • How?
  • What makes America great?
  • What will they do?
  • Will they be allowed to do it, once elected to office?
  • What's in store for the future?

Hillary Clinton has been in the White House before as the spouse of a former president and knows the political maneuverings of a politician and Donald Trump is an outsider that does well in business but has no finesse when it comes to the political arena.

So what makes these two people suitable for the highest leadership in America?

People keep talking about their personalities, but do we care that Hillary doesn't seem to become open and endearing? Do we care that Donald has a great business sense?

Will these traits make any difference to the poor on the street, to inflation, the cost of living and education?

Personally, I want a leader, not an entertainer who only knows how to insult others or a woman just because she is female.

Clemens, Mark Twain Quote

In religion and politics people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten second-hand, and without examination, from authorities who have not themselves examined the questions at issue but have taken them at second-hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions about them were not worth a brass farthing.

The political and commercial morals of the United States are not merely food for laughter, they are an entire banquet.

Political Subtleties

Subtle issues between what makes one a Republican and what makes one a Democrat is always something worthy of discussion and examination, yet I have seen these lines blurred publically because of what it means to someone privately.

  • Taxes
  • Foreign Policy
  • Social Issues
  • Free Trade / Labor
  • Health Care/ Social Programs
  • Energy / Environment
  • Education
  • Crime and Capitol Punishment
  • Individual Liberty
