I read about USA every day. Why? Because the world needs America to be rid of the person who promised to “drain the swamp” but instead filled it with worse people instead. The rot, promoted by the current resident of the White House, needs to be purged. He has re-defined the swamp. I suspect the Republicans will look back on this part of their history and hang their heads in shame. Principled conservatives must wonder what is happening to their once great party. We are living in a world where principles reside in another place than power.
I acknowledge that politics is the art of the possible. However, now days there is very little “art” in politics. It’s more “arse” than “Class”.
I am finding it depressing watching the Democrats scrapping because they also appear to have completely lost their political antennae. A close look at American politics and you realise that it’s the resting place of lobbyists. The big companies and the states all buy the votes around tables. With both parties.
In my state of despair, I was intrigued to watch this ad and think “this is very smart. I wonder if he is the real oil?” Have a look at it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_1T_xPpAwo&utm_campaign=wp_the_5_minute_fix&utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter&wpisrc=nl_fix.
Then, if you want a bit of a laugh, watch this video of a comedian pretending to be Donald Trump and ringing Michael Bloomberg.
