Ronald Reagan was the last lion.
He radically changed the tax system, defeated communism, cut the price of oil by 60% and made the US the most powerful country the world has ever known.
As much I loathe Winston Churchill, at least he wasn’t a pussy without a clue. The guy at one point carried a rifle. He may have been a racist but at least he wasn’t a fucking baby. He smoked incessantly, drank scotch all day long and reviled in insulting his political enemies. God do we miss the guy.
Now, a US senator resigns because he put his hands over a woman’s breasts on a flack jacket.
Another is told to resign over a high school Halloween costume.
A German Chancellor can’t figure out why admitting a million male Syrian Muslims that can’t speak German might be bad for Germany.
A French PM can’t stop Moroccan hordes from destroying southern France. His own citizens tear Paris to pieces, Jews are run out of a country they’ve lived in for 10 generations and he hides.
In the US, politicians hide while high school kids are assaulted…
their school’s targeted and their lives endangered. Meanwhile, around the world, these same leaders cower from even the smallest problem.
The number of countries that balance their federal budgets can be counted on your left foot.
Even with a literal flood of money, these same governments can barely function. Welfare is handed out by the boatload, the people suffer from obesity, uselessness and diabetes and nobody can figure out why this is a bad thing.
And as people get fatter, lazier and more useless, the worldwide whining hits a fever pitch in a chorus of WHAT ABOUT ME!
The simple fact is,
If Vladimir Putin ran in any western country, he’d win.
The last President of the US went on television to announce his March Madness basketball picks while we were at war in five countries. He did an interview about politics on Comedy Central. And while the Navy Seals were killing Osama bin Ladin, he was in the White House kitchen playing hearts with “the body,” a man the White hired “to keep the President company.”
The President before him was so stupid he couldn’t pronounce the word nuclear.
On 911 he was reading children’s books to a grammar school class. During the Vietnam war, he joined the “Champaign unit” of the Texas national guard and learned to fly a decommissioned plane while there was a pilot shortage. Then he went AWOL and had it covered up by his daddy. His first major campaign stop was the Little League World’s series. He was given a baseball team and a massive middle eastern oil concession and couldn’t make money on either one.
America’s current crew of candidates…
include a slut, a communist, a spoiled, suburban socialist, a man who drew a grand total of 65 supporters at a border wall protest whose previous occupation was nanny. Then there’s a 76-year-old groper and another 76-year-old media “icon” who 95% of the population wouldn’t recognize in a police lineup. And to make matters worse, no one seems to know why a secretary of state who shared confidential information with people with no security clearances and took in $230 million in “speaking fees” might be doing something wrong.
Most of Europe is run by hedge fund managers for the benefit of banks.
They’re so inept they can’t even agree on what language should be used on bathroom doors. The only leader in all of Europe with any cojones’ is the 92-year-old Queen Elizabeth.
As I said, if Vladimir Putin ran for office in any western country, he’d not only win, he’d win in a huge landslide.
Thomas Jefferson once said that the people will end up with leaders they deserve. Let’s hope to God he’s wrong.
