PUBLIC NEWS IS FREAKING BACK
2016 was a mess to a lot of folks, 2017 is going to rock!
Normally this column, Letter Rip, is the last thing completed before it goes public, or to “press”. Restarting the Public News has been as exciting for us as much as it will be for you, our fine readers, to consume.
The latest delay was due to me, the publisher, also known as the guy who writes this column. It was not so much about writers block, which is was probably 40% of the problem, but about political block. The fear of pissing off our readers who do not like our politics. Granted I did not vote for Mr. Trump (giant sigh of relief from the left) but at the same time I did not vote for Ms Clinton either (massive knawing of teeth from the left). Was this a surprise to you? I did vote but not for the two very flawed candidates that the major parties were able to fling together. Come on, Bernie Sanders was the only other Democrat to challange Clinton?
So what is our political bend, if we had one? It would be as a Constitutional Conservative. Notice I did not say Republican or Democrat? The reason being is the both parties are bought and sold to the highest bidder. They are establishment parties, existing only to enslave the masses via excessive taxation and regulations. That is taxation and regulations that the establishment excempt themselves from. After all, the elites (slang for the establishment) believe that all are equal, just some are more equal than others, meaning the rank and file, little people (or as Clinton called us all, the deplorables).
We have got to get a clue and stop voting in these wolves. Congressmen Kevin Brady and Congresswoman Shiela Jackson Lee are two stripes from the same zebra. Some are getting the hint and did two things, stayed home on election day or voted third party.
Now that the Commission of Presidential Debates got their hands slapped for stacking the deck against third parties, maybe there is still hope for this country.
For the record, we bend Libertarian.
