I could go on, but why bother? No one is reading this blog. No one is reading the headlines that really matter. Thanks to the foreign policy ineptitude of Barack Obama, the incompetence of Hillary Clinton during her time as Secretary of State, John Kerry's inability to reverse the deterioration in international ties, and Samantha Powers invisibility at the United Nations, the magical detente achieved by President Ronald Reagan has ended. Once again we stand on the brink of global thermonuclear war, a three-way suicidal last hurrah by The United States of America, The Russian Federation, and The People's Republic of China. North Korea and Iran are both prepped and ready to do their part as well. As of this morning, Pakistan has jumped on board the Russian juggernaut.
It no longer matters who wins the election on November 8th. If the boys with their hands on the big red buttons have restrained themselves long enough, then I will still vote for Donald Trump. Whoever wins, if war does not start in November it will most certainly start in February. A year from now I will be dead and you will be dead while the United States of America and most of the Northern Hemisphere will be a smoking, radioactive ruin. Clouds of radioactive dust and debris will fall from the skies for the next decade. Almost all forms of life as we know them today will be dead long before that decade ends. It is fitting that scary clowns are terrorizing the American countryside. Sending in the clowns has always been last act of every good circus.
So thank-you, liberal progressive America. Gays can now marry, armed black street gangs have more civil rights than the unarmed innocent blacks they prey on, our police are afraid to shoot deadly felons, radical Islamic terrorists and Mexican drug cartels have formed deep alliances, Chinese slave labor is the foundation of the modern industrialized world, Swiss bankers can no longer keep their secrets, and solar panels are everywhere even though their best conversion ratio is around .07%. You have achieved your liberal progressive, neo-Marxist global utopia just in time to watch it all get blown to hell!
But hey, don't stop now. Keep railing against Donald Trump. Don't back off those cries of "bigot", "misogynist", "greedy billionaire", and all those other delightful labels you love to apply to anyone who disagrees with you. Your Kenyan-born messiah* has brought in your new world order and if we are all really lucky, it might last until June. I'm betting not. My money is on global thermonuclear war in the middle of November, February 2017 at the latest.
It was good while it lasted. Thank God I was born in the United States of America. Thank God I had a chance to help Ronald Reagan become president. Thank God I was able to visit a dozen different countries and raise a family before it all went to hell. Now, if you'll pardon me, I'm going to sit over here on the sidelines and strum my ukulele while the world burns. I did the best I could, but no one was listening.
(*) Yeah, yeah, I know. He was born in Hawaii. Despite his long educational career as a foreign student, his Malaysian passport, and the Time Magazine article that declared, "Kenyan-born Senator Barack Obama visits his birthplace in first major overseas trip!" Funny how quickly that headline disappeared when he decided to run for president. Sure, he was born in Hawaii, but his loyalty has always been elsewhere. What other honest conclusion can I reach when he drags us to the brink of nuclear war in order to protect a small army of terrorists in Aleppo who call themselves, "Al Nusra Front"?
