The Establishment VS the Mighty Little Guys
Dear Wise Readers-
The election of our lifetimes ? Most elections call themselves the most important ever. Much like the latest hurricane threatening Florida or Louisiana-- "it's just the biggest in history !!!" I will say however, that this election, more than any one before, is about the mighty and powerful against the average American citizen and it could have a serious effect on our government and its privileged.
I first voted in the election of 1984 and voted for Ronald Reagan. The only Democrat I ever voted for in the presidential election was Bill Clinton in 1992. The only non-mainstream candidate I ever voted for was Gary Johnson, the Libertarian in 2016. I was a registered Republican from 1984 to 2004. I was an Independent from 2004 to 2016. I changed back to the Republican party as I realized the two parties had such a lock on power in our country. It was admirable, but futile and naive of me to think the Independents could gain power in the "swamp". There's too much to overcome; lobbyists, powerful party members, the corporate media, Wall Street, international conglomerates, high tech, big Pharmaceuticals, etc......they all are vested in the traditional party system because it suits them most. One day we will have candidates that are Independent or of a third party but we must first remove the maggots feasting on the rotting corpse of political decency.
Everything changed in 2016. Donald Trump ran away with the Republican party and went "rogue" as the presidential candidate for the GOP. I despised Trump for the same reasons most people despise him. He's course, rough, rude, insulting, bad mannered, conceited, self absorbed and egotistical. He's orange. I even had a letter published in the Orlando Sentinel highly critical of Donald Trump. Then I had a change of mind. What changed you ask ? I watched the mainstream media go into meltdown over Trump's election. All sentiment of unbiased coverage and professionalism left them like the professionalism that had just left the White House. Their disguise was stripped for all to see. I then watched as they and the Democratic party worked tirelessly to remove the duly elected Donald Trump from office. A bogus Russian investigation led by a platoon of Democrats investigating for a year-- ultimately finding nothing. An impeachment over one perfectly legal phone call. Spying was revealed to have occurred during President Trump's candidacy. The media ignored all of this and anything good about Trump and attacked everything about him. They worked tirelessly to get him out of office. Why ? I understand not liking him, but the reaction was and is above the fray. Something is odd about their hatred, as if they stand to be in big trouble if he continues to rule. Not the American people, but them, the privileged, the DC elite, the swells of Manhattan, the lobbyists, and the one dimensional vapid Hollywood stars.
Something has been revealed this past four years. The swamp is much worse than any of us thought and everyone is involved in it; the Democratic party, what's left of the establishment Republican party, and everyone that benefits from their rule in DC have been feasting at the pig- trough of American work ethic and decency to feed themselves. Actually, they've gorged themselves on special privilege and the never-ending money machine that is Washington DC. While he's surely not perfect, Donald Trump is the only human being on earth that has any chance to stop them. Therefor, Marshall in the Middle endorses Donald Trump and Mike Pence for President and Vice President of the United States of American. May God bless them and protect them from the sharks of our government that continue to bite chunks out of our American republic in blood filled waters - eyes rolling back in ecstasy as they feast. Stop them now you old SOB.
"Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us, for we have had more than enough contempt. Our soul has had more than enough of the scorn of those who are at ease, of the contempt of the proud"
Psalm Chapter 123, Verse 3 and 4.
