Nice guys finish last
Hello folks! Okay, I just read a great article which I think makes correct observations of what the nation is and has been going through … and why.
Here’s a lead-in to the article and a link to the piece:
‘Nice’ losers, nasty winners in 2016
The presidential candidate of Midwestern nostalgia, Ohio governor John Kasich, is a nice man. Unfortunately, the 2016 election cycle is a meat-grinder: equal parts unpredictability and contentiousness, not decency. Therefore, “nice guy” candidates like the highly likable and eminent Dr. Ben Carson, in the same Kasich mold, trail badly in the polls.
In any case, the electorate is disillusioned by the establishments of both political parties, as well as the propagandist, one-sided MSM that carries the Democrats’ swill of half-truths, misleading statements by omission, and outright cover for lies (like Joe Biden’s 1992 “misunderstood” objection to an end-term Republican president making a Supreme Court nomination.)
All under Mr. Obama’s golf-playing watch: 10 trillion in additional debt; almost 8 more years of economic downturn; 93 million able-bodied Americans unable to find employment; Democrats’ pandering to Radical Islam, illegal aliens and Black Lives Matter; Europe awash in 60 million migrants and the Middle East on fire with terrorism. And lest I forget, our pro-Islamic president‘s crowning legacy: the high probability proliferation of nuclear weapons in the Middle East under the control of Iranian ayatollahs.
To any clear thinking person, is it any surprise that everything is “throw the bums out?” (This means you too, House Speaker Paul Ryan, with your “fresh start” 2 trillion dollar budgetary capitulation to Democrats.) In 2016, it takes no genius to realize that voters are fed up to their eyeballs. Consequently, Kasich’s fond Americana of homemade apple pies or “I Love Lucy” reruns is out-of-step with the timbre of the country.
