Summing up our choices for 2016 we have the choice between to ego maniacs who both love war and who both come with baggage that would normally mean prison time.
Normally, because politicians have become pawns of corporate and the 1%’s interests, we are at least given a choice of a lesser of two evils. But the shady and shoddy way Hilary does politics and the race baiting hateful way Trump operates have left us with a choice I can best describe as The Evil of Two Lessers.
As a filmmaker with a PBS show that led into the Bush-Gore presidential 2000 debates and a hit 2008 Youtube political series, I am something of an expert on the presidential elections and the usual gamesmanship. But the outrageous 2016 elections have left me mystified.
I base my harsh assessment of our wicked choices this November on the fact both Trump and Hilary are hawks and ultimately servants to our military industrial complex. This will mean more war instead of focusing on our troubles here at home.
For a time the opposing good of Bernie Sanders gave people that still believe we can right the ship of state some hope. This all happened despite a mass media that laughed Bernie off.
Meditating on the sorry state of our politics I am left with an old adage: Sometimes things need to get worse before they can get better.
So either Hilary or Trump as the evil of two lessers will serve to show American politics is broken. Life is a long song and maybe 2020 stands for the 20/20 vision we must develop.
In reaching out to my spirit guide Ohom he tells me that no matter who of these two opportunists we elect he and the ETs who watch over our world have our backs.
