Depends Who You Are

If you are 20 years old, you are not thinking about who will be the next president.  Still stuck at 15, you’re thinking about your next text, sext and who you’re going to the mall with.  All this because the notion of getting a job takes you out of your “safe space” and mom yelling about a job is a “trigger warning”.

If you are 30 years old, you have been looking for full time work for about 8 years and blaming Geo. W. Bush for your go-nowhere part time job.  You are still driving your 1980 Ford Fiesta and living in your parent’s basement.  And in your heart of hearts, you know that giving Obama one more shot would turn everything around.

If you are 40 years old, you’re still clocking in at the job you had in the heady days of 2004, because you chose to waive a raise instead of going part time.  You’re 401k is in the shitter; you haven’t saved a dime; you are driving that 8 year old Volvo your dad gave you.  And your wife and two kids have you living week to week.  You’d like to chuck it all and go to the Caymans, but you can’t afford a ticket.

If you are 50 years old, you yearn for bell bottoms, leisure suits and Farah Fawcett.  You discovered too late that Al Gore’s life was the inspiration for Love Story and you will never forgive Lee Majors and Ryan O’Neal for letting Farrah die.  

 Through hard work and some shitty investing, you managed to go bankrupt in the 90’s but are doing well now with the death of your rich aunt.  Your third wife has the reins on your trust and you on a short leash, because she saw how you treated the first two wives.  She did let you finally buy that Mercedes roadster, but it was used and it is in her name.  Both your kids are grown and gone and your son will be eligible for parole soon.  Your daughter moved into a commune 5 years ago and keeps asking you to forward her trust to the resident Guru.   

Just like Joe Biden you had your bald frontal planted with plugs, and just like Biden the back forty is as bare as Kim Kardashian's ass.  You long for a Hillary presidency, but wifey is a Republican whose parents will leave her millions.  So Walker, Jindal, Fiorina, Christie, Huckabee, Paul, Santorum, Graham, Bush, Cruz it is in 2016.
If you are 60 years old, you remember Kennedy, Johnson, Reagan, Clinton and the Bushes.  Kennedy and Reagan because they actually made a difference, Johnson and the Bushes for getting us into wars we had no business in and keeping us there.  And Clinton for nailing his ‘server’ in the Oval Orofice.
You know who most of the political bad guys are and how they got there, by lying, cheating and stealing their way into the opportunity to screw the rest of us.
And while we have entered our third trimester of life, don’t think for a moment that we haven’t learned anything.  We all now know (except for Bernie Sanders) that socialism doesn’t and has never worked.  We know that Hillary Clinton will lie, cheat and steal, then kill anyone that gets in her way.  And we now know that the entire U.S. Congress and the Secret Service has violated their Oath of Office in that this president is a traitor, who violates his Oath almost on a daily basis and no one around him does a fucking thing about it. 
And given that Hillary has already demonstrated, on more than one occasion, that she is an incompetent liar and traitor, she will most likely replace the current Traitor-in-Chief, unless someone (not already violating their Oath) wins the Office through the will of the governed.  (Pray that he will not be removed one way or the other) 
In any event, the People will get what they either deserve or need desperately.
And if we are so lucky to get what we need, to remain a Representative Republic, we should expect a tsunami of changes to the size, direction and purpose of the government, that has been systematically bastardized into nothing our Framers intended.
