2. Much of what he says about Trump and his cult is right on, but then he goes too doom and gloom.

 

He says precious little about organizing the kind of movement needed to "overthrow the corporate state", and bashing the Dem Party, which is a 1000 times better than the ReSCUMliCONS, is STUPID. We have the House, and Trump WILL be put in check.

4. and he goes on to encourage voting third party

such as Ralph Nadar and Jill Stein. This is after he describes the Trump cult so well and even points to Mexico which has dozens of political assassinations as being the future the cult may lead us to.

I admit to not understanding where he's coming from. Yes, I understand he wants to overthrow the corporate society, and perhaps you could make the argument that in that regard, there isn't a big difference between the parties. Or perhaps you could say that as the restructuring of society is their main goal, then all energy spent on working for the Democrats is wasted. But after describing the horrors of the cult with its violence and lies and ecocide, he has to admit there are HUGE differences between the parties. And why would he think that it's easier to reform the corporate society under the fascist regime the GOP is becoming than to do so under the imperfect but not coltish Democrats?

So I'm very confused.

3. A great speech

Listened only to half of it but bookmarked to finish later.

Thanks for posting this.

Trump is a leader of a cult of people with personality disorders.
