Something Which Eats Itself: Why We Must Vote Trump Out in November

We have become something unspeakable. Something which eats itself.

The current President of the United States of America is driven only by one thing: greed. And greed, by its very nature, can never be satisfied, it can never be filled; it will always be empty, it will always be starving, it will always be on the take.

Greed knows no other way.

Donald Trump knows only greed, and greed knows only one thing: ‘more.’

The insatiable need for more power, more money, more attention, more fame, more horror, more destruction, more chaos, more shock, more trauma, more ratings, more more more more until, ultimately, nothing more exists because greed has eaten everything.

And so it is forced, by its very own nature, to eat itself.

If left unchecked, unchallenged, undefeated, the only end to greed is the end of everything.

Donald Trump is not in the highest office in the world in order to serve or protect the American people, or any people at all in fact, except for him and his family. He stole the office because of greed, and because he is aligned with all of the very powerful people all across the world who know only greed, only acquisition at any and all cost, including, and sometimes centered around, the loss of human life.

Nothing is personal to the greedy, and yet everything is.

Entire lives lived out on full display devoted to a single insatiable sadistic relentless craving for more. Money. Power. Chaos.

Destruction, panic, and suffering for entertainment.

The fewer people on the planet, the less bothered these powerful people have to be with the inconveniences humanity as a collective pose to the obtaining of more land, more resources, more. Hence the denial of climate change. Let us burn and drown.  Let us fend for ourselves. Let us be extinguished by ignorance. Perish by smoke and mirrors.

And so they push ‘herd immunity’ and let the virus ‘run its course.’ It’s all a game. It’s one big worldwide episode of Survivor. 

Tell us patriotism means being willing to die for the economy.

It means to die for the NRA.

The people Trump has put in charge of the vital institutions of our democracy have been put there precisely because they are hellbent on destroying these very institutions. Placed in charge of the educational system, disease control, healthcare, mail delivery services, legal systems.

The ones who are supposed to protect us want only to annihilate us.

The country is being dismantled from the inside out. It goes on because there is no accountability. No force greater than greed has sufficiently challenged the greed, and so it goes. The threat is grave because it is invisible yet evident everywhere, it is hiding in plain sight. The call is coming from inside the house.

The flaunting of the corruption, the indignities, the lying, the deceit, the cruelty, the anger, the fear, the pardoning of cronies and criminals.

The refusal of even reputable media to call lying and cheating what it is. To speak truth to power. Even as the stakes have never been higher to do so.

It is not politics. The cleverest thing they have done is to convince us this is about politics. Fuck politics. ‘Politics’ is an illusion. It pretends to have lines you can cross or not cross, no. This is about the very basics of human decency, honesty, integrity. The value placed on human life, or the lack of value placed on it.

Basic human decency versus the vacant vacuum of greed which will never be satisfied until it eats everything and then is forced to eat itself.

If we do not vote Trump out of office in this election it is Game Over for our democracy. The ramifications will last generations and will decimate not only America but the world. There will be no stopping it. Already we are cut off from our allies, deliberately and recklessly, we are being systematically isolated, lied to, terrorized, bullied, abused.

It’s like the abused spouse who is cut off from anyone who may be able to help her. Made helpless, gaslit, and left alone. Much easier, therefore, to control.

No one is coming to save us.

So we have to save ourselves.

We get one last shot. We have got to make it count, we have got to win this thing and the only way to do it is in massive numbers that leave no question about the overwhelming outcome of this election in Biden’s favor.

But we won’t, unless we see just how very dire a situation we are currently in, and how very bad it will become if we do not shut it down in November.

It isn’t just that Donald Trump doesn’t care if we live or die – it’s that he is actively pursuing the latter.

We must vote Biden into the White House this November like our lives depend on it because they absolutely do. I do not write this to convert anyone who is already committed to Trump. There is nothing in that for any of us.

I write this for anyone in America who is thinking of sitting this election out for any reason. Please VOTE.  It matters. Vote while we still can. Vote while we still have a voice and a way to make damn sure it is heard. Make your plan, get registered, make sure all of your friends and family do the same.

Lastly, to my fellow Pennsylvanians, we are a CRITICAL swing state this year, in fact it was stated on fivethirtyeight.com that we are THE critical swing state in all of the USA. If PA goes red, Trump has an 84% chance of winning the Presidency. If we go BLUE Biden has a 96% chance of winning the Presidency.

We have become something unspeakable. Something which eats itself. The only way to stop the greed from destroying everything in its wake is to remove it, like a cancerous tumor, from the host.

  1. I love this so much. These words are incredibly important. It’s not about Right or Left. It’s about greed and accountability. It’s about what can happen if we let greed win, and if we are not held accountable for our actions and behaviors. Thank you for writing this. I hope people can see beyond politics and do what’s right for humanity.

    Indeed, Miss Allison. Indeed.

    Funny thing, I’ve been working on a post regarding the Election for the last couple months. Trying to sift through the wreckage of the thoughts and topics I want to discuss. I, admittedly, am one of the one’s you are writing to who are on the fence regarding whether my vote matters or not. I’ll continue this privately as I’d really love to hear your thoughts on my jaded view.

    Thank you for writing this. Keep up the good work, as always.

    1. Thank you so much, Tom, for reading and taking the time and care to leave such a kind and honest comment. I would very much look forward to reading your thoughts and having a conversation. I understand feeling jaded. What I ultimately asked myself was … does my vote (voice) matter …to me?

      1. Thank you so much for your well wishes, Dear! I am safe and healthy. Hey, I’m a supporter and Cheerleader. I’m following the handbook but would do it on my own without it. I am very happy to know that we are pulling in the same direction. I’m so waiting to be able to shout at the TV – “You’re Fired!”! LOL

  4. I don’t know my friend. Both are crazy and odd. Biden want to close down the country for three months, only concern for the black vote. I am Native American/Mexican and white. He doesn’t offer anything for me. How about the old people, health care and the fix for the coronaviras? Hard election. Just like last election. I voted for Hillary, who I disliked. She isn’t a soldier’s favorite. So far, Biden offered me nothing and Trump is being Trump. I do believe we need our guns. If we don’t protect ourselves. Who will? We don’t need automatic weapons but home defense is necessary. The dangerous people already threating riot over Judge selection and the election. My dear friend. We need better candidates. The people in power now, including Biden. They went on Summer break without affirming the coronavirus money. All of them, all house and senate men and women should be voted out. The President is the final vote and the House and the Senate. They are terrible. I won’t tell you who I shall vote for. I believe, voting should be private. It is terrible when we have limited choices. The truth is simple. The men and women who run our country are wealthy. They do not know the burden of not knowing when the next meal shall come? Can you pay your home payment? I pray we survive this election. I write for common sense. I want us to fix our country without violence. The leaders who accept riots as okay. They are wrong. I will demonstrate for peace and calm. I would stand with many and pray for common sense. I pray for the sake of my children, my grandchildren. The people listen to what these men say. Are they talking to you? Or me?

      1. It would be a good place to know dear Allison. I lived in downtown Detroit in the riot and I saw soldiers, tanks and armed vehicles. We do not want the federal government involved in State security. 1984 book would become true. Look at Great Britain. Will fine you 1200 dollars for going outside with the viras. I have three grandchildren doing home school. Poor children are confused and paying the price of the madness. I am praying for better days.
