This frightens me….

index

It concerns me that Trump is being taken seriously by so many people.

It disturbs me that he could be the Republican candidate in the 2016 presidential race.

But THIS is what REALLY frightens me.

US voter participation is low compared with other developed nations – around 54% – which means that out of 235,000,000 elegible voters, only around 129,000,000 are bothered to cast a ballot.

Given that voter participation in the lowest soci0-economic quintile is even lower – around 40% – there’s a massive untapped voter population who have no or little high school waiting there for Trump.

And he appeals to this segment of society – they feel disenfranchised, neglected and fucked over by politicians.

“But look!” he cries “I’m not a politician! I’m a self-made man! I’m in nobody’s pocket!”

Let’s just say that the margin under “normal” circumstances is 55%:45% in favour of Hlary Clinton (if she doesn’t get indicted by the Department of Justice).

Around 13,000,000 votes separation.

All Trump needs to do is to get 15% of these non-voters – the people he REALLY appeals to – to vote and he’s a shoo-in.

THAT’S what frightens me….

Them tea towel flag blues

index

That nice Mr Key
He do hate that Union Jack
Yeah that nice Mr Key
He just loath that Union Jack
Goes for tea with the Queen
Ain’t never getting invited back

Jenny Shipley
she do hate that colonial flag
But Jenny she a Dame
And she do like that tag
Can’t hate the flag and be a Dame
Ain’t no truth in THAT game

That nice Mr Key
He do love that silver fern
That nice Mr Key
You think he’d never learn
He ain’t no All Black
He just a political hack

Richie wear that silver fern
Dan Carter wear it too
Look real good on an All Black jersey
And on a tea towel too
My tea towel dries them dishes
My tea towel shines that glass
Turn that tea towel into a flag, honey
Baby, you can kiss my ass
