I have in a number of posts advanced the theory that given the current crop of presidential candidates, I would like to see Hillary Clinton win.
This is not because I think she is better than the other candidates, I think they are all horrific and I wouldn't put my support behind any of them. I would never tell anyone that one is a superior candidate who may hold okay positions on some topics that somehow outweigh that candidate's horrific positions on other subjects.
Face it, it is not going to be fun in America regardless of who the next president is.
That being the case, the only thing we can hope for is that the most incompetent and ineffectual leader gets in.
That is not Donald Trump.
Anybody that can get a large group chanting like this in almost any city in America is not an ineffectual leader as far as getting the crowds to follow.
This is not what I want. I want a president who couldn't even get a wave started in a packed baseball stadium.
Keep in mind, this is a woman who couldn't gain a presidential nomination against a community organizer who had only four years earlier failed in a bid for a house seat (!) and had only junior league experience in the Senate.
This round she has a self-described socialist nipping at her cankles that she seems incapable of dog spraying.
She is incapable of shutting down an absurd email server investigation.
And Brad Delong has wonderfully described her lack of skill as an administrator.
Despite repeated coronations of Saint Hillary by the media, she has a horrible time of riding these coronations to victory. The coronations in a way hide the incompetence of the pantsuit lady.
If I must face evil, please make the evil the bumbling, disoriented bum, not the calculating, bodybuilding bully.
I also hasten to add that my position is not that incompetency will rush America through a painful collapse and light will emerge from the other side of the tunnel. Those who advocate measures that will bring us closer to collapse, fail to understand that collapse is not necessarily followed by fresh air and Spring flowers.
It should be remembered that the crushing of Germany by way of the Treaty of Versailles did not bring free markets to Germany but rather the transforming of the Weimar Republic into Nazi Germany.
The American people, indeed the world, is not ready for a liberty revolution, be it via pain or peaceful revolution. Don't full yourself into thinking that a great social and economic collapse brought on by evil government measures will necessarily result on the other end with a bunch of Tom Paines leading us toward a new free world. Movies, these days, always end with happy endings, real life is not always that way. And it is certainly not guaranteed after a terrible collapse, if the masses have no clue as to the tremendous importance of liberty.
In other words, in no way do I want to see the "worst candidate" win on the idea that the country will be crushed and phoenix-like rise from the ashes, that is a pipe dream coming from a pipe I am not smoking from.
I almost must add because of this comment:
