WhatDifI used to think, vote your conscience. Vote for the best person you believe will do the best job. I don’t believe this anymore. “What difference at this point does it make?”

Our founders, in their wisdom knew that all of us are imperfect beings, corrupt and can often, easily be manipulated and corrupted. They understood that government is, a necessary evil. But they also, realized that the lust for power and control would attract certain types of people and personalities that would desire to— run everything, law everything and interpret everything.

So, rather than put the whole bunch under one tent, they purposely constrained, restricted and limited government, to three branches.

This has worked out pretty well for the last 240 years, except? Except theses power-hungry people have always been trying to find loopholes or language they could interpret to gain, maintain and expand their powers.

Our founders knew these three branches would each try to take over the others. They made making changes to the Constitution NOT easy, but hard, to limit the government from taking over our unalienable rights such as, Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness! It was a limited government, NOT an UNLIMITED one where the president executes, legislates and judicates or adjudicates; the Legislative executes and judicates; and the Supreme Court executes its own interpretations and legislates from the bench. Is this limited government? I think NOT!

For example, baring in mind the original intent was to limit government, the Supreme Count decided long ago, to interpret that the, “under good behavior” phrase from the Constitution means, they can keep their jobs for life? I think NOT!

Do you really suppose the original intent for representatives and senators was for them to make lifelong careers? I think NOT!

If congress won’t go along, isn’t this what executive orders and presidential proclamations are for, to circumvent Congress? I think NOT!

Should not the president tell the Supreme court what is and what is not the law? I think NOT!

Then what about dynasty families like the Kennedy’s, the Bush’s and the Clinton’s? Is this the real limiting of government as was intended? I think NOT!

Do you really think our founders ever intended a 3-term president like  Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR), who might have had four had he lived? I think NOT!

I think that presidential term of only 8 years was amended in the Constitution?

Government has even tried to regulate elections, if they can’t outright control and eliminate them. What a pain in their collective arses to be subjected to the humiliation of having to get elected or re-elected again? Too bad, not sad, deal with it!

Well, obviously, for them to have to deal with it, there has to be elections. This means, voters and actually voters, voting! If we don’t like that jerk or jerk-et (feminine equivalent of the masculine jerk), we can vote for the lesser of two evils and maybe get a whole new box O’ rocks (or dumber than) and have a whole new crop of jerks and jerk-ets?

“What difference at this point does it make?”

So, yes, WE the People must vote, for the lesser of two or more evils. Well, in this presidential election year (2016), there is one presumptive nominee for the Democratic Party and one for the Republican Party. Not everyone likes either one. What to do?

“What difference at this point does it make?”

“With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?”

former secretary of State, Hillary Clinton

I’m not sure, but maybe the families of those that died Sept. 11, 2012, from the bombing at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, by Islamist radical terrorists, might want to know why you lied, why you never sent help, why you were sleeping, why over half of the country do NOT trust you, trust or believe your answers to your handling of email, trust the Clinton Foundation or believe you are qualified to be president of the United States? But all that aside, “What difference at this point does it make?” I want alternatives! Okey-doke.— see later in this post

1. Vote for Bernie Sanders (Hello, he can’t, cannot, nope— he absolutely can’t win, unless of course he is the only one left standing at the convention)?
2. NOT vote at all (stay home because I am bitter or a baby (didn’t get my way), an idiot or an idiotic illegal alien and can’t vote or am not supposed to be able to anyway)?
3. Vote for some third-party candidate? see: #’s 1 & 2 above
4. Vote for Hillary Clinton (assuming she is not indicted and/or jailed, prior to November 3rd, 2016?

“What difference at this point does it make?”

THERE IS, NO DIFFERENCE, WHATSOEVER!!!!!

A vote for Hillary or no vote, is still a vote for her! Well, what if?

What if Trump becomes president and he’s been lying?

WhatDif2

This could equate to four more years or more of SOS (same ole’ sh-t) until— we run out of sh-t, which is about yesterday anyway!

What if Trump Becomes president and he’s been telling the truth? Is his motto anything new or something we have never heard before?

1980 Campaign Button for Ronald Reagan Republican

This slogan uses just six (6) words (counting the word Let’s, as 2). It is a complete sentence. “Let’s Make America Great Again. ”Let’s…,” let us, (implies a suggestion). It is an all-inclusive vision. “Let’s… (let us)…Make America Great Again.” It is an appeal for help, from US, us being, WE the People. It is suggestive of, permission. It implies that at that time, America was not great. It also, implies, that WE or US, might NOT (did not) make America Great Again.

WhatDif4

From a 1992 campaign video, Bill Clinton Democrat

This campaign slogan was most likely borrowed from the Reagan campaign in 1980. It uses 11 words. It is also, a complete sentence. “I want to attack these problems and make America Great Again. It implies that at that time, America was not great. “Notice the personal pronoun “I,” “I want to attack these problems and…,” and by following the nearest noun (personal pronoun) as its antecedent, I want – “…to make America Great Again.” Absent in this remark, is WE, US, you and I. This statement is exclusive of all others except, for the one making it. In other words, all we poor pathetic peons needed to do was vote for him and he “wants” (wanted) to, “attack the problems,…” and he, “wants…” (wanted) “to make America Great Again.” There is nothing in this statement that he either did or did not attack the problems or make America great again. But maybe he will become the  ‘First Man’ and economic adviser to the president, his wife? Then he could finish the job and make his America great again. “Giant Sucking Sound,” said opposing candidate, Ross Perot in a 1992, Presidential Debate.

“We’ve shipped millions of jobs overseas and we have a strange situation because we have a process in Washington where after you’ve served for a while you cash in and become a foreign lobbyist, make $30,000 a month; then take a leave, work on Presidential campaigns, make sure you got good contacts, and then go back out. Now if you just want to get down to brass tacks, the first thing you ought to do is get all these folks who’ve got these one-way trade agreements that we’ve negotiated over the years and say, “Fellows, we’ll take the same deal we gave you.” And they’ll gridlock right at that point because, for example, we’ve got international competitors who simply could not unload their cars off the ships if they had to comply — you see, if it was a two-way street — just couldn’t do it. We have got to stop sending jobs overseas.”

“To those of you in the audience who are business people, pretty simple: If you’re paying $12, $13, $14 an hour for factory workers and you can move your factory South of the border, pay a dollar an hour for labor, hire young — let’s assume you’ve been in business for a long time and you’ve got a mature work force — pay a dollar an hour for your labor, have no health care — that’s the most expensive single element in making a car — have no environmental controls, no pollution controls and no retirement, and you don’t care about anything but making money, there will be a Giant Sucking Sound Going South.”

excerpts of Transcript of the 2nd TV Presidential Debate, comments by candidate Ross Perot, in response to a question from the audience and the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which later, president Bill Clinton signed into law

Perot was right! Now, government wants to expand this crap. Clinton helped Clinton pass NAFTA. She/they, HillBill-y are globalists. Remember ‘It Takes a Village’, Hill’s book and Obama’s statement, “You didn’t build that,” (business)?”

“What difference at this point does it make?”

2016 Donald Trump campaign slogan – Republican

“Make America Great Again.” This statement is, a complete sentence. It is visionary. It is inclusive. It is inclusive as it does not single out anyone(s) nor excludes anyone(s). It is not an appeal, a suggestion, a desire, a hope or merely something that one person wants to do. It is an imperative statement, as simple as, JUST DO IT! It is left as the responsibility of every man, woman and child that are citizens of the United States of America or those seeking to become citizens legally. It is the responsibility of all that have the power to make it great again, to make it great again! One way is to vote, by all those that are eligible to vote! As long as the USA remains, this is a timeless statement, for as long as, America is not great. The statement suggests that America is not presently “great.” Is this true? You know it’s true because, we are NOT presently great.

I have never seen nor presently see a campaign slogan that says something like the following:

Four years or more-y of Hunky-dory

And with all due disrespect to president Obama’s speech in Elkhart, IN, on June 1, 2016, no one is running on a campaign of “Okey-doke,” either! “Okey-doke” or okey-dokey is an urban language term for the reduplicated, reduplication of OK. It also suggests that anyone that believes in okey-doke are just witless wonders. The pres said that, “…Okey-doke, on June 1, 2016 in Elkhart, IN. He went there to take credit for Indiana’s economic recovery, when in fact, it was not his policies that made the difference, but it was due mostly to fracking and the recovery of shale-oil! News Flash, soon to be, ex-president, not everyone believes you or in you; and many can’t wait for your bye-bye and could care less about your legacy! We are more concerned with making America great again!

The statement suggests that America is not presently “great.” Is this true? You know it’s true because, we are NOT presently great.

So, if we are NOT great, then it’s up to you and I, all of US, WE the People (including Trump), to make it great again! Why would this statement also, include Trump? Because he is running for president, to do his part in making America Great Again. He’s campaigning on better trade deals, winning again and in essence—AMERICA FIRST!

“What difference at this point does it make?”

Make America Great Again?

OK, so you don’t like being told what to do, being told to, Make America Great Again? Maybe you don’t want us to be great again? Maybe you just want the return of “business as usual?” A vote for Trump might help make America great again? Maybe not and if not, then maybe if he’s lying, we would all just return to, “business as usual?” So, we have a 50/50 chance of being right or wrong with Trump. Don’t like those odds? Then by all means:

1. Vote for Bernie Sanders (Hello, he can’t, cannot, nope— he absolutely can’t win, unless of course he is the only one left standing at the convention)?
2. NOT vote at all (stay home because I am either an idiot or an idiotic illegal alien and can’t vote or am not supposed to be able to anyway)?
3. Vote for some third-party candidate? see: #’s 1 & 2 above
4. Vote for Hillary Clinton (assuming she is not indicted and/or jailed, prior to November 3rd, 2016?

“What difference at this point does it make?”

THERE IS, NO DIFFERENCE, WHATSOEVER!!!!!

After all the votes are cast and counted, it’s still up to You and I to:

Make America Great Again!

I’m willing to make a difference! What about you?

I will end this post with two videos. The first is an editorial, by a real judge.  The Last one is fiction, by a real actor.

5-Minute Speech that Got Judge Napolitano Fired at Fox News

The most honest three and a half minutes of television, EVER…

Make America Great Again

MakeAmericaGreat_med

Well sure, for what it’s worth, you could say that this is an endorsement of Donald Trump for president. I endorse the slogan, and all it could mean, and the ability to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! But this post is even more than this. There’s lyrics below to a potential song. If you do not want to read this entire post, then scroll down to bottom of the page, for my song (lyrics) or first—

Political campaigns or politicians (even if they are only about 6 months old like Trump) using songs by musicians who do not support them has been a thorny issue for decades.  But people need to get on the facts train and get off the band (opinion) wagon. Yes, band, that was a pun, a little punny’ or funny, if you will.

Facts:

Does a songwriter/singer/musician/group etc. publish music for profit? Of course they do! Would they like as many people as possible to purchase their music? Absolutely!

Now if you or I purchase their music, we can play it anywhere and at anytime we like (almost) and that includes at home or work where other people hear it that have not paid for it.

Public performance require additional licenses (legal permission with financial payments being made). If this is not what the artist intends, then they should not publish their work, sell their work and perform their work in public. These things are all supposed to be spelled out in the contracts, between the artists and their record labels. Unless the artist spells out in the contract that their music cannot be used ‘politically,’ like the artist Prince has been known to do, the artist really has no legal legs to stand on, as long as their music has be legally licensed.

Why would an artist object to their music being played anywhere, at anytime, by anyone for any reason, as long as they are being paid or the music is being heard, which could potentially get them more money? Because, they don’t like the politics, the person(s) using their music? OK, that is a legitimate response, but is that spelled out in their contracts? USUALLY NOT!

And if offended, so often they send messages, cease-and-desist letters and etc. to try and stop those they think are abusing their music or using their music, for any thing other than what they have intended. Still, they really do not have the U.S. Copy Right Law in their corner. But not wanting to offend the artist that has sent such a request or made such a demand, it will most likely be settled out of court and their music will cease from playing in political venues. And why not? If you offend the artist, you might also offend their fans. And I submit, therein lies another reason why the artists do not want to be associated with politics. Their fans might not like it and stop buying their music. That’s all about money under the pretense of political correctness!

Another curious thing is, the type of music being played. Although there are exceptions to this, for the most part, rock-n-roll, hop, hip, the so-called ‘cool music,’ the supposed ‘smart music,’ the live and living popular music, all seem to be associated with the Democrat Party. That leaves what they consider the dead, dumb, unpopular, country/western, hill-billy, redneck, country bumpkin or hick music that should only be used by the Republican Party. How ridiculous are these stereotypes? RIDICULOUS!

Music is, universal. It is NOT that I think it is, music IS, UNIVERSAL! Music transcends ages, culture, languages and countries. It is used for many things like: marching, patriotism, inspiration, mourning, comfort, dancing, happiness, political statements, social commentary and well, music may be, without limits and without bounds as to what it means  to people and how it is used. There is both a science and an art to music. It can be used to build-up and it can be used to tear down.

What difference does it make what kind of music I like, as long as I pay for it? The artists should be grateful that I like their work and that I like it so much, I buy it. Isn’t this kind of like I am endorsing them? I have never heard any artist that protests over using their music, where they reimburse anyone that paid for their music, to stop playing it!

I like many different kinds of music. Does that make me a Democrat, Republican or Other or does it just mean I like many kinds of music? There are artists whose music I like, but not them personally or their political slant. Does this mean I should not like their music or just that I do not like them as persons? If I still like, enjoy, purchase and play their music, does this make me a hypocrite or that  I endorse their political views? Of course not! If they discover that I do not like them or agree with their politics, have they ever asked me to stop liking their music, to stop buying it and stop playing it? NOT, as of this writing. And if they did and I agreed to stop playing it (“agreed to” not forced to as if I did something wrong legally because, I did pay for it), shouldn’t they then give me back my money? Well. none of this is going to happen anyway, but the point is, this is, all RIDICULOUS!

Now when it come to lyrics (if the music has them), and I don’t like the words, I won’t play it, even if I still like the music. If it’s just the music or the instrumental version I may, but if I don’t like or agree with the words, I won’t play it. And I may be, just referring to one song or even all, but one song on an album or CD/Download etc. Yes, I may buy an album just for ONE SONG or purchase just the one. But none of these things mean I like the artist or their politics, just their music.

In the future, artists should write their contracts out that their music is NOT allowed to be used by certain people and/or for certain purposes AND THEN ALSO MAKE IT POSSIBLE THAT THEY CANNOT PURCHASE THEIR MUSIC. Well, that ridiculous, but it does make the point. In the future, change the copyright laws to have all music excluded from all political parties, not just the the one you don’t like. That would be fair. Or just quit acting so offended and be grateful that your music is being played and purchased in the first place!

Now here is a wild idea. DON’T WRITE LYRICS that you do NOT want the public to read or hear and that even a child or a fool can’t understand and that in so reading or hearing them sung, the words don’t tear down people, but build them up! Wouldn’t this be acceptable to all parties? YES or YES IT SHOULD!

To Donald Trump, here’s another idea. Forget all those politically incorrect people and make your own music. People will still complain about that too, but it will still be yours. To follow are some lyrics I wrote. You may surely use them. I’d be proud if you do! Find someone to write the music, something that gets people excited (musically) and their hearts pounding, equal to the purpose of your running for president of the United States of America to—

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN

Lively Intro (music)

Verse 1

From sea to shining sea— you can hear it
And the powers that be do fear it
Rolling up, from the deep
The silent awaken from their sleep
And shouting, “We’re not gonna take it anymore
North, South, East and West from shore to shore

Refrain

“We’re not gonna take it
“We’re gonna make it
make it great again

Verse 2

And to the powers that be, you have taken our trust
Broken it, crumbled it and turned it into rust
Oh, NO, “We’re not gonna’ take it
Instead, “We’re gonna’ make it
So the angry chorus becomes a glad refrain
Make America Great Again!

Bridge

Verse 1 (partly repeated)

Rolling up, from the deep
The silent awaken from their sleep
And shouting, “We’re not gonna take it anymore
North, South, East and West from shore to shore

Refrain

“We’re not gonna take it
“We’re gonna make it
make it great again“

We’re gonna make it
make it great again

Make America Great Again
