A Nation Fixated On The Blue Pill


Politicians Just Don’t Get It

Sponsored by CrisDental Family Dentistry


I’m disgusted with…….

I ran for public office in 2008 in Oregon so I have an understanding of what it takes to be a politician.

I watched the second hour of the Republican Debates and am still highly disappointed.


I didn’t hear a lot of ideas what I heard was lots of arguing, bragging and the use of the words I, me, my never a we.


These candidates are out of touch with what many of us are looking for.

Most of them came out punching in an effort to stay viable to the pundits and political players. I felt like I needed to plug my nose to avoid the stink of what was pouring out of my television screen.


But what they did, I think, was make themselves even more irrelevant.

I heard some good ideas but none worthy of printing on computer screen because once elected they probably won’t do what they said anyway.

I heard lots of blame but never a mention of the number of fingers pointing back at them as they raised one to this or that.


Not one of them impressed me.

For those on the “D” side who are excited about that, your candidate is no better, in fact he’s a joke. Your man is embroiled in a controversy that is just as horrible as the Republican’s main man but you just refuse to look at it and the media ignores it.


Polls show few of us are happy with the choices.

By the time November of 2024 rolls around most will jump to their side of the isle, plug their nose and vote.


If I were in my 20’s, 30’s or 40’s I’d be pretty apathetic watching our system turn into what it has become.

Apathy is a killer and no excuse but come on America, can’t we do any better than this?

What happened to our vision?

What happened to fairness and the importance of the truth?

We claim diversity but the best we can do is come up with two old white guys who appear to be the front runners.


I feel like I’m living in the matrix.

Rather than taking the Red Pill that exposes one to the reality and hard truth about the world we live in….America will swallow the blue pill to dull their minds, wipe away their shame and put them into a comfortable, deep sleep.

Just the way those in charge want them to be.

Biden is NOT "embroiled."


The media is not ignoring it.


What the hell are you talking about? Have you been watching the "Impeachment" Inquiry? Even the first Republican witness (Jonathan Turley, a George Washington University law professor who is an expert in impeachment issues) stated there is no basis for proof that Biden did anything wrong - only a need for an inquiry to show America they investigated Biden.

Wayne, turn on some source other than the one tickling your ears. The guy is going down. Have you seen the polls? Even your own side is abandoning him. He's old, a crook and because he has a D in front of his name you back him....Wow.....you're a hell of researcher LOL

Rick, you nailed it!

If boomers like us are getting glazed over eyes from 2 terrible choices, how are we going to convince the next generations that this system, though flawed, is the best out there?

Unfortunately, this is what the ones profiting from this morass want. Follow the money!

No sane person will put their hat in the ring as long as this is what the system expects them to subject themselves to. Hence more of the same old crap.

Sorry to see you summoned up the old and tired red pill-blue pill theme. Life is more complicated.

Last night as with the first debate, it was an embarrassing shit show and just another example why the Republican Party is in deep shit. They cannot work together, stand together or unify anything. Rather than answer the questions, they did what politician do, tell people what they want them to hear or think they want to hear. Not one of them said hoe they would fix anything only "if elected" which means nothing, because as we all know when elected everything changes. Just one It would be great if and when a politician was asked a question, they actually answered the question. No one on that stage with perhaps the exception of Nikki Haley advanced their position o…

I think they all did poorly. Haley came across as angry and bitter...but she was better than some of the others. Still, it was embarrassing, almost as embarrasing as our current presidents performance on the job and his VP who can't think her way out of a wet paper sack.
