Dear #Hillary2016 aka $2.5B Scooby Van Chipotle Champion:
We, the people, need all the help we can get.
We do need our interests represented in the power grid.
We need a President of the United States of America.
We need a President who will not easily and happily compromise on our interests.
You are running for the Democratic Nomination for President.
You are not running for Champion of the working people.
We need a President who understands how democracy works.
We need a President who understands how to develop a culture of democracy.
We need a President who understands that citizens need a system of self-government.
We need a President who understands how much systemic change needs to happen for viable self-government to be sustainable.
We need a President who understands how much time it takes to engage in self-government.
We need a President who understands how much practice we will need at true self-government.
We need a President who understands how much we need to not be dependent on a champion to manage our affairs for us.
Yet, we sure as god-damned hell are not democratically competent to manage our own affairs.
So, for now, we need an honest broker who knows political Kung Fu. This is true.
Sorry, but, champion just smells cheesy & sounds tinny & it just does not resonate in any good way on any level.
We have a cheesy & tinny Democratic Party gunking up inboxes with cracker crumbs & spray-can cheese ... what's it called? ... "cheese whiz"? ... "snack-mate"? ...
But, there's a solid gold money-machine that sucks everything! It would vacuum under America's car seats & sofa cushions via our inboxes if it could! It sucks! Bullshit petition pretenses for money!
Honestly, I think you are out of touch and in for a schooling.
By all means, run, fight, win! Someone sure as hell better!
You can do the money math & the vote math.
You know you need every god-damned dollar and every god-damned vote.
That should be enough to keep you honest and keep you off the streets & out of trouble.
...unless you get too desperate and get in over your head in unfamiliar water...
Hearts & minds! That's the difficult math!
We have had Hope & Change turned to Nope & NO Change!
Yes, those mean SOBs started right in on November 9, 2008: NO! NO! NO! Nothing for Obama! Nothing! Ever!
... and the sick bastards cannot stop to this very crazy second!
That Obama has done as much as he has and is still fighting is more than a grownup could ever have hoped for.
A grownup knows this is about as good as it gets without real true democracy. I thank President Obama for his service He certainly has earned this citizen's respect and loyalty.
But, the kids thought we had a champion - even though he never called himself our "champion" ... of course, that would have brought to mind the movie, "Black Knight" with Martin Lawrence - very, very funny! ... just not Presidential... & cheesy & tinny, anyway...
The grownups knew that champion after champion will get mowed down by this system one after another - forever! Even a Chicago champion with a Chicago crew would do well to fight to a draw!
The grownups know the facts of life.
The grownups know how little we really know as a culture about true democracy.
The grownups know how little hope & change we will ever have unless & until we achieve true democracy.
The grownups know how little any number of champions can do to get us true democracy.
The grownups know how only, we, the people, can achieve true democracy for ourselves by practicing & fighting & practicing & fighting & never ever quitting until we achieve more true democracy and until our children keep practicing & fighting & practicing & fighting and never ever quit until they achieve more true democracy and until their children keep practicing & fighting & practicing & fighting and never ever quit until they achieve more true democracy...
The grownups know how few people really know this and how even fewer know enough to care and how fewer still have the skills and the time to practice them let alone anyone to practice them with.
Please, lose the champion crap!
Just run, fight, and win!
Beat the mean-machine and give us a fair chance to develop the democracy we need and that our children need even more!
