Your President is Whack

It's official, Hillary is running for president again in what I expect will be one of the most controversial races in U.S. history. Barack Obama caused a stir with conservatives because of his politics but I feel like many people toned down their criticism to avoid being labeled as racists (a rant for another time). Unfortunately females in nearly every culture have been mistreated and maligned for all of history lending to an atmosphere where conservatives will feel more at ease to rail against Hillary. 

The point of this post isn't to endorse Hillary but to deal with the rage constituents work up towards opposing candidates as if it's an American past time. I'm not going to mince words here - shut the fuck up. A president does have a lot of power but is restrained by the Legislative branch. They are not monarchs who do as they will, nor are they capable of single handedly ruining the country. Most voters want to sit back at home and have everything taken care of for them by someone in Washington. When a candidate who opposes issues they feel are important it strikes fear because they feel powerless. But do you know why you feel powerless? Because you don't take matters into your own hands and instead have abdicated responsibility to politicians. If there is something you really feel strongly about, get out there and take some action yourself and then maybe you won't be so fretful when the "wrong person" gets elected. Grow up and act like adults that live in a free country.
