A Love Letter to "Minorities" [smirking]

Do We Need to Obsess Over “Minorities”?

If America was living up to its full potential, or even half so, there would be no use for the term “minorities”.  What thinking human being gives a hot goddamn what color your skin is, who you have sex with, whether your name ends with a vowel or a consonant?  In modern society, with all our technology, what is the fascination with a man in a wheelchair as opposed to out of one?  Is there anyone left who thinks tits interfere with one’s ability to understand a periodic table?  If you are struggling with any of these questions, you are part of the problem I am discussing today.

I know none but the least intelligent business owners don’t care about these things.  When they shake your hand, the only thing they want to know is what you can do for their bottom line.  If the relationship works out, it has much more meaning than that, but at first blush, it can’t be other. That’s why first impressions mean so much.

I know people with well-rounded social skills don’t have a problem with these things.  They want to meet people who bring an improvement to their quality of life.  That’s what a friend is.  Again…first impressions.  Sometimes a person can grow on you.  But they can’t if they see you or themselves as alien to the relationship.

Just who ARE the Racists Out There?

The government is certainly obsessed with your sir name, the color of your skin, your relationship types, your genitalia, your use of a wheelchair….  When hiring especially, they are often less concerned for your ability to do a job as they are the bullshit matrix they’ve assigned you to.  Even if you don’t have any hangups about such things.

In real America, there are only three basic groups; Americans, immigrants and illegal immigrants.  More about the third in a moment.  But in recent years, employers, friends and others who will interact with you will usually find immigrants to be more “American” than Americans.  That’s because as Americans we have a) been broken down into so many mutually resentful  subsets many of us no longer know what an American is, and b) we’ve become so spoiled, lazy and distracted we’ve forgotten what it means to be American.

I find it depressing to watch as so many members of what we refer to as “minorities” give their blind allegiance to those who have created their status as a “minority”.  In the process of doing so, those same people have done serious (irreversible?) damage to those they insist are minorities.

I am speaking, of course, of the political Left.  But feel free to add people who call themselves conservatives but pander to “minorities” for fear the liberals will make them look bad for not doing so.  These people are the most irritating.  They don’t even know what “conservative’ means.  If they did their approach to Americans would be characterized by the first paragraph of this post.

Think about it.  What the hell has the American Left – for simplicity’s sake we’ll just say Democrats – done for you lately? Ever?  Would a member of a “minority” group in Detroit, Pittsburg, New York, Philadelphia, Harrisburg, Chicago tell me what the Democratic Party has done for you?  I will qualify the question thus: You don’t work for the government and you haven’t broken from the expected mold and started your own business or studied.  And don’t say schools or welfare.  You can get those things anywhere. And too much “welfare” hurts you more than it helps you. (With that final qualification, I have pretty much destroyed any valid answer you might provide.)

So when I hear that Hillary Clinton has the “minority” vote locked up, I cringe.  Look at any long term news cycle.  Hillary Clinton develops an interest in “minorities” on the exact same level she did her job as Secretary of State. As SecState, she had requirements for things that were to reach her attention. Photo ops/good press, face time with Obama and the Clinton “Foundation”.  Anything else was assigned a lower priority.  You can draw a dividing line at the point where Libya issues stopped getting her into high-profile meetings at the White House.  At that point she went from tens of thousands of documents per year on the Lybia, to a few hundred.  Sadly, for Stevens and the others in Benghazi, they were on the thin side of that line.  Sorry Chris!  Putin needs to buy up our uranium and I get money for the Clinton “Foundation”.

And so it is with American “minorities”.  During election years, the Queen of Wall Street suddenly develops an affection for people she would otherwise ignore.  Hell, she’ll occasionally go all ebonic or acquire a faux Spanish accent just to show you she’s your gal.  But she’s not.  She never will be.  Nor SHOULD she be under this pretense of caring for “minorities”.

Metaphoric show of hands; who is sick of being treated like children, intentionally divided into mutually resentful cliques?  Me! I am!  How about you?

Of what I’ve read, Stein is the only candidate who talks a game about “diversity” and “people of color”.  The only redeeming grace I see here is I believe she means it.  She doesn’t have a public policy and private policy, as Clinton does.  Clinton has one policy for her rich, connected allies and one for those who she considers her lessers; specifically the poor and “minorities”.

I mentioned illegal immigration.  This is one of the most spectacular accomplishments of those who exhibit the racism of low expectations.  They have convinced Americans of Hispanic decent or origin that letting illegals into the country is a good for legal Hispanic Americans because the illegals USUALLY share common sir names.  Talk about cynical!

“Minorities” Might Vote for Clinton.  Americans Won’t!

If you are considered a “minority” and you are considering voting for Clinton, you are sealing your own doom for the foreseeable future.  It will require a sense of self that goes beyond racial/ethnic/gender obsession and a sense of pride to break free of the Democrats’ plantation/ghetto/sorority.

Nooooo! That's NOT what I meant!

Yesterday, I wrote that this was the perfect time for third candidate in the general election. Today I wake to find the Romney is trying to talk John Kasich into being that third candidate! Nooooo! Do these guys actively try to find ways to keep the country off track?

Don’t get me wrong. Kasich seems like a very nice man. But as a “Republican” and a “Conservative” he is the very same poison that has led to the emergence of a semi-articulate clown as the Republican nominee. He would also have the effect of peeling off very few voters, and all of them from Trump. That is because he is as boring as dry toast. He will not draw a following away from the Democrats.

No, dummies. The whole point of running a third party/independent is to get rid of Clinton and Trump and at the same time put a man in place who will thwart the Four Morons! The Four Morons will abet Trump or Clinton, both of whom think it is the President’s job to “run the country”.

We need a President who will shame Congress into doing their job and not one who will appoint federal judges who believe in safe spaces and the tooth fairy.

At the moment, there are only two viable candidates who can do that: Ted Cruz and Gary Johnson. Johnson has the greatest chance of pulling from both parties, but both could conceivably reach the 30%+ threshold to at least deny the election to Trump/Clinton.

Mitt, I went easy on you when you first stuck your foot in it this year. But it is time for you to shut up! Your good intentions won’t be worth a bucket of poop with Clinton sitting in the White House.

A Shocking Shift of Realities!

Street Politics will provide much more about this and even outline ways to make it happen. In the meantime, I’ll ask the reader to share this link and get the conversation going. Seriously, this could change the American political landscape in ways we couldn’t have imagined just last year.

As of a few months ago, I was still telling people there is no path for a third-party victory in presidential politics. The reason, I would say with professorial certainty, is that we need to build third-party viability starting the day after a general election, fill state and local offices with third-party people and then build a known entity into a realistic presidential candidate over the entire election cycle; maybe two cycles.

 To achieve wide-spread success for such a party, this is still a true assessment. HOWEVER!…

There has never been a more perfect moment for a new insurgent to WIN a presidential election in more than 150 years. Right now, the stage is set for a sober and honest politician to emerge and pull the rug right out from under the smug and incompetent candidates and handlers in the race.

Remember Lincoln! He was a relatively unknown member of his own party and utterly unknown in the US when he took the nomination and won the general election. He did so as a member of a party that was far younger than the Libertarian Party we have today. He was likely the most lampooned man to run for the presidency next to Richard Nixon. His success in the nominating process was a matter of circumstance which very much resembles the elements at work in our present-day general election. More important, his opponents were far more worthy than the silly lot our insurgent would face today.

And there is the critical word. It is the year of the insurgent candidate. Presently, according to the media there are only two choices. A man who ONLY knows how to finance real estate deals and blurt out populist concepts he barely understands himself, stands on one side. A corrupt felon with ZERO regard for national security faces him. These are the two main choices we are supposed to go along with. It’s like being asked, “Which has lovelier scent, the bleu cheese or the Limburger?”

When you look at the solid support both the leading candidates have, and I use the term “solid” advisedly, it comes to about 35-40% of the entire electorate. That leaves 60-65% of the population available for an independent or third-party candidate. Keep in mind that in exit polls, among those who voted for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the majority usually said they disapproved of them anyway.

Right now, we have at least two candidates available to fill the void. One is Cruz. He has a huge following and could easily gain the support of many of those who supported his primary opponents.

Even better, we have Gary Johnson, former Governor of New Mexico. His resume is superior in every respect to that of every other candidate and potential candidate under consideration right now. He is running as a Libertarian and espouses ideas that would not only attract many conservatives but a lot of Democrats. Many Democrats and independents understand wide-eyed socialism and untrammeled corruption are not what is good for the country.

If this idea takes hold, the talking heads and political class will scold us. They will tell us (with a smirk) that little people cannot emerge and take on the sacred cows of DC or the media darlings. There is NO WAY a third-party candidate can win. They know this is no longer a true statement. They hope that enough of us will continue to be mindless lemmings and obey their implied command to fall back into line and stay there! I am betting that ship has sailed. American voters are starting to think for themselves again.

But here’s the best part. If we reject the reality TV clown and the criminal, we don’t have to have 50% of the vote to win an election, although we could achieve it.

This may be the year legalized marijuana advocates and small government conservatives BOTH thank their personal god for an electoral college; and maybe even an election forced into the House of Representatives.

At this moment, Gary Johnson is at 11% in the national polls, with almost no mention in the media. This number WILL go up. Cruz would hold sway with huge numbers of the 60% of Republicans who would rather vote for their dog than for Donald Trump. In Cruz’s case that is almost 30% of registered voters. For Johnson, his appeal to millennials (legalized marijuana, less military intervention, etc.) would resonate wildly. He would do more damage to BJ Bill’s wife than to the Donald.

Not only could Cruz and Johnson make enough of a splash to justify a realistic run, if the election were forced into the House, the congressional electors would be blessed with two choices which wouldn’t actually cause them to vomit; two candidates we could take pride in as citizens.

And, for the record, Johnson is running on the Libertarian ticket.
