Michael Bloomberg Fucking Sucks

It's so weird and annoying to have Democrats attack Bernie Sanders for not being a "real Democrat" while you're sitting there being like "yeah that's a huge point in his favor for me" and knowing that a ton of people feel the same way and having to remember that there are so many humans out there in the U.S. who think that Democrat is as left as it gets and that everyone left of center must be a Democrat like what a weird way to live.

Meanwhile Michael Bloomberg is an actual fake Democrat who was a Republican just a few years ago until he decided that the best way to buy his way into the presidency was to go through the Democrats even though he's basically a slightly more discreet Donald Trump with better business sense but is worse at playing the public.

Please don't let his relentless ads convince you or your loved ones to vote for him, he's awful.

All this also has me thinking about the Vote Blue No Matter Who crowd, and it's such a seductive slogan that makes so much sense on the surface and has the entire horror and trauma of the Trump presidency propping it up, but I still feel like it's an insidious thing. People are using this "better of two evils" logic to try and convince people to support Bloomberg by claiming that he'll have the best shot of beating Trump against all evidence.

Most polls on the subject show Bernie, the leftiest candidate, has the best change of beating Trump. But they're telling you that Bloomberg has the best change like it's objective truth and like it's obvious, preying on this false idea that the middle is the best. But the U.S. center isn't the center, it's to the right, and in between "nobody deserves to die from poverty and we should take care of each other without judgment" and "poor people should either be our slaves or fuck off and die" is not the ideal place to be.

I'm also remembering the compromise of the "Vote Blue No Matter Who" thing that was like "hey you can go ahead and support whoever you want in the primaries, just vote for the Democrat in the general election!" But whoops, now I'm seeing demands for various candidates to drop out to give other candidates a better chance to get the nomination because they have a better chance in the general election. So much for that, I guess.

And yeah, Bernie supporters are doing this, too. A lot, in fact, and at Elizabeth Warren. Which is really annoying because it was primarily the Bernie supporters who were like "we should be allowed to support who we want without compromising for political strategy" and look just pick one or the other, I can't stand hypocrisy, people.

Which is best? I honestly don't know anymore. All I know is that the fact that we've been forced into this choice between following your heart and maybe not letting the country continue to shift to the right in the long run and preventing another four years of child concentration camps and all the other horrible things that have already been caused by Trump as well as the ripple effects that could occur from another four years of him makes me feel like THIS COUNTRY IS FUCKED.

This is not a good choice to have. So many potential outcomes are really bad. This is why people say we need a revolution.

This has been a collection of random thoughts I've been having around the election but in conclusion Michael Bloomberg fucking sucks DON'T VOTE FOR HIM.
