Enjoy what's coming

This has been a glorious election. In a way, I wish it could continue for a couple more years! Trump has managed to scare the everloving hell out of people, forcing media bias to become utterly obvious to everyone in a blatant attempt to change the election outcome. (Gotta love the way Trump's rallies are so large, filled with people who openly despise CNN and the MSM in general.) The corruption by the government was on center stage, with the FBI blatantly declining to prosecute the clearly criminal Clinton out of fear and toadyism. Wikileaks has shown the Democrats to be beholden to Wall Street, corrupt beyond belief, and the amount of election rigging that has gone on has been absolutely priceless.

This is a genie that won't go back in the bottle.

Let's say Hillary wins tomorrow. There will be lamentations - well deserved! - but she'll hobble into office as a crippled candidate - morally, politically, and given her penchant for passing out like a drug-addled senior citizen, likely medically as well. Trump delivered exactly what he promised during the primaries - a savaging - and that alone makes him the most honest candidate we've seen since Reagan. What has been necessary to shove Hillary within grasping distance of the finish line has been amazing; tell me that Jeb! or Rubio would have done better, and I will have one hell of a laugh.

The electoral process - the government, the media, even the corporations - have all been exposed as corrupt and tainted. The only possible way to vindicate it, if only for a moment, would be for Trump to actually win tomorrow. Which means, if in drastically different ways, this entire process has turned into a win-win one for those with my sympathies.

Of course, time's going to march on no matter what. But Leviathan itself took a savaging this election, and the wounds aren't going to close quickly. Granted, that doesn't mean happy times are right around the corner - wounded beasts are dangerous. But after watching the GOP, along with conservatives, squirm and wiggle and whine and cry for so long, and so pathetically? I've come to enjoy a bit of fire and ferocity. I enjoy the fact that now, more than ever, it's easier to see who's on what side.

I do not think I am alone in that.

You aren't alone in that, but... what good does public recognition of how the electoral process is corrupt do if it's so corrupt that the Left can guarantee itself permanent electoral victory anyhow, not to mention permanent elimination of any legal recompense or recourse? If the realization means that we're finally going to take up arms against them, I'd call it worth it (and I'd sign up!), but I think we're quite a ways off from that.

Because recognition of corruption robs processes and institutions of legitimacy. Being robbed of recognized legitimacy either means reform (unlikely) or circumvention (we'll see).

I've said from the start of Trump's candidacy, I see him as valuable in a cultural sense more than anything. Politically he'd be great, but what he's caused culturally is tremendous - and his willingness to make 'RIGGED' a central claim of his candidacy was, quite literally, something I was praying for. When people recognize the media, the federal authorities, even the political parties all as corrupt and in the service of powers that are working against them, I think their approach to the world changes in a way that will benefit them.
