Dude when I was living on the tundra in Alaska I met a guy who straight up told me he was going back to Africa to shoot another elephant because he "needed some more elephant foot trashcans"
Out of interest, do you ignore everything you don't agree with?
Give me your president saying horrible things in public. Give me your president banging interns and lying to congress. Give me your presidents getting caught spying on their rivals.
Because for some reason those things get people more mad at the government than starting wars, toppling foreign governments, locking up hundreds of thousands of nonviolent drug users, running up unfunded liabilities that are as big as the official debt SQUARED, picking and choosing winners in the corporate world to the detriment of the consumer, etc.
Way, way less than half of the people in this country even voted in the election. Even fewer voted for Trump.Difference is people voted for those things.
Don't think people dislike the notion of war. People dislike the notion of losing a war.
Don't think people dislike the notion of fucking with other people's governments. People dislike the notion of fucking with other people's governments backfiring.
Don't think people who don't take drugs don't dislike drug users and don't want to see them locked up for having a different mindset to them.
Don't think that half the world lives on the never never, pushing their financial obligations further down the road.
Don't think that people don't mind seeing an unfair corporate world because they think it's ok because they're on the inside so they can benefit from it.
In short, stop being so pissy about the government when they're doing exactly what people want them to do. Be pissy with the people who put them there.
But, they don't vote for them to make them look stupid. That's Trump's cardinal sin.
