I thought of this when watching Donal Trump slag off Hillary tonight. I say watching but I was looking and not listening at the time, I was waiting for the news to start. The US elections of course differ from ours in that they speak only to their hearers, that is those who support them. There are no awkward people asking awkward questions like there ought to be, no one disagrees, all merely attend, scream and shout and wave their placards when the moment arrives and like sheep speak the words offered by the great leader.
Interestingly the Soviet Unio...sorry, president Trump has all Russia rooting for Trump and he has had contact with him before, this is just what we need, an all American guy obeying the Ruskies! peace on earth at last - unless you are in Ukraine of course.
Not long to go now to discover which lying good for nothing has bought their way into the White house. I was reading in an Alistair Cook book a broadcast he gave during Regan's second election victory. This man was considered unstable by the population of the world at the time, and they were proved right, yet vast numbers of Americans voted for him! This makes clear to me that the people of the US, especially in the backwoods, will vote for Trump and I suspect he will gain a huge victory!
Now I will not sleep tonight!
Now for something relaxing....
