Inside vs. Outside: the Presidential Finale

The incumbent verses the elite ruling class, who wins is paramount for the future.

Let me start with a few assumptions. People really want an insurgent candidate. It is the year of the insurgent, if ever there was one. Now that change order is not like a celebrity getting a little “nip and tuck”. It is a major event with major consequences.

There can be no doubt about who the elite ruling class are, the establishment has its fingers into all the incubators of freedom or the wave of movement politics, just to hedge its bets. It’s been working overtime to preserve the ruling class reign.

It was validated by people across the spectrum that they want change and prefer an insurgent candidate. So the dynamic, though appearing fluid, is one of the entrenched establishment verses the outsiders — the tar and pitchforks. The elites don’t know exactly how fed up people are csince they haven’t got the message so far. Face it, I can’t think of a lot of fans of status quo politics. It’s not like they have a cheering squad out there.

They’ve always assumed they can corral people back into the cattle chutes in the end. This time seems to be the exception to that rule. Too much has happened, too many lies, too much distrust, too much arrogance…too many lectures, too much failure and at what cost? Put that together with related factors. People don’t trust government anymore, they don’t trust Congress, they don’t trust the media, and they are not predisposed to trust politicians (putting it mildly). And they have the scars to prove their reasons for distrust.

When the election began, I wondered what the narrative would be and what the eventual election would really be about? Wonder not. Very early on, the establishment boldly tried to declare the terms, whatever we thought about it.

It is surprising that there are still a lot of big-government people out there. And they believe that magic dust sprinkled on everything under big government will solve whatever ails the country. It’s not the time or place now (if there ever is) for it but that is their view. They simply vote for more of it. The string of failures don’t seem to matter. Enter Hillary.

Notice with Leftists’ progressive world view that the 2016 campaign is only about a couple things. They talk about some plans — lip service keeping the status quo going — and then there is the vote. Guess which one they care about? The plans are pie in the sky if you can believe anything they say. But the real point and their emphasis is just on the vote and that is all that matters. Any way they get it. It’s a giant registration program(s) and then they talk about the vote, and then they talk about getting out the vote. That is their message. It’s really not about what they’ll do, or what the people want, its about the vote.

Then it is any means to their successful ends. Yet they mock the idea of rigged process or fraud in elections. That doesn’t matter to them as long as they win. Al Gore proved what happens when they don’t. Just stir the pot and get people to vote, then back to business as usual — screwing the public. So public service means served by the public for self-interest.

And people on the Left actually think they are voting for something? The DNC leaks and Hillary show what they think about that. “It’s just the vote, stupid!” To them it’s the vote, to us it’s inies vs. the outies.

“Freedom’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose.”

A nation in crisis

Whether you see it as a Constitutional crisis or as the many individual scandals the current Oval Occupant has, one thing is clear we are a nation in crisis.

Scandals now too numerous to list: a border being trampled on, our laws being selectively enforced or ignored, accountability at an all time low, and a WH resident that many see as impossible to impeach. It’s like one of those steamy soap operas that ‘has it all’.

This twisted scenario plays out while the national press, media plays Tiddlywinks. TiddlywinksIf they need a story, which can occasionally happen, they can just ask someone in the administration or their shadow press relations for a recommendation. So much of their coverage could be programmed by the administration. What’s the problem with that?

As the nation is mired in one scandal after another, it is strange how the narrative becomes about those “nuts” talking about so-called “phony scandals”. It’s a surreal place even Orson Wells couldn’t have imagined. Equality is a euphemism for get your share, and some will naturally be more equal than others. Everyone demands their share except on accountability.

We go from one election to the next, with a pause for intermission between where nothing can be done because this or that is reserved for the next election. Can’t get ahead of ourselves. And “we the people” are always trying to keep up but predictably wind up a few steps behind. Nothing is what you see in front of you, and there is always a plausible explanation — okay, not so plausible.

For their part, the elite ruling are always running to try to stay far ahead of us, or our wrath…whichever seems the greater threat at the moment. We are asked to participate in the election process but cannot be expected to understand the issues correctly. That’s why we need their interpretation for us. We could not get the proper perspective without their enlightenment. It’s all very complex, you see.

If we are as dumb as they think, then it is an indictment on electing them. It’s a double-edged sword. “We the people” get lectured about accountability and tolerance, while their ruling class has neither. Sound sort of depressing? Well, welcome to 2014, and the long range forecast is no better, since things do not change. Maybe the cast of characters is altered from time to time but the script remains the same.
