SoCS: Election

I  journal mornings with stream of consciousness exercises,
and participate in Linda Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday  whenever
I have time.  I write to a timer, 15-20 minutes, no editing except spelling,
and of course I add my art!  You can join us!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ect.” Find a word with the letters “ect” in it, and base your post on that word. (Not to be confused with “et cetera,” which is “etc.”) Enjoy!

“perfect misdirect reinfect subject respect suspect deflect reject direct elect”

these words were chosen by mitchell… elect is a good place to start.

i’m disgusted by everything in our country lately… lost respect,
and can barely manage to write this post about the election.
in a humane decent time candidates would want us to vote for them based
on their platform being popular with the people.
now, mostly, they deflect their truths for bullshit and misdirection…
i am suspect of anyone who suddenly comes up with an entirely different
way of being than their years of experience have revealed.
i don’t mind some changes —
a candidate may decide climate change needs to be front and center now
because their home is about to go under due to rising seas and they get it…
so those kinds of changes are not suspect.

but billionaires buying their way into the ballot box
(as opposed to the millionaires who ran as a normal person might)
and deflection instead of truth-telling or the dnc rejecting what the people want
because it is not in alignment with their corporate sponsors —
shit
it is no wonder young people walk away from these elections.

rigged… when your own party is rigging the count what can you say?

the last debate as so over the top rude and screaming,
and the moderators so bad i rejected the entire debate, turned it off.
news castors can’t differentiate between spin and editorializing and reporting.
and no one respects the constitution.
ashamed to be an american.
said that too often in the last decade.

For the rules, go to Linda’s blog;  feel free to join the fun!

    I thought election then stopped myself. I couldn’t have remained civil. It’s a circus out there.
