Race to the Bottom: Thoughts on the GOP Presidential Elections (Part One)

February 25, 2012 3 comments

The full title of this article, actually, would’ve probably gone something along the lines of “Race to the Bottom: Thoughts on the GOP Presidential Election and the Sociopolitical State of the United States (Part One)”, but I decided to spare WordPress’ URL system from such a taxing name.

I rarely make it a secret that I’m not exactly very impressed by the 2012 elections for the next president of the United States. Actually, if you think about it, it rather resembles a rather poorly-done MTV show (in the manner of all MTV shows) involving spoiled, rich, suburban South Californian teenage girls doing their utmost to out-brat each other on national television for their sweet sixteen by making the most outlandish, offensive comments as possible. Not having watched MTV with anything approaching regularity, I naturally do not know whether or not this concept has actually been explored before on MTV, but I suspect it would not be terribly different from the current presidential elections that we’re seeing, and probably a whole lot more entertaining, if only by the virtue that the audience is not terrified by the idea that one of these persons may eventually win and become the president of the United States.

An Introduction

Well, let’s try and get a bit of this out of the way.

I’m a currently twenty-two-year-old globe-trotting, stupidly-dreamy, academically-eager, and criminally-lazy writer-in-training having graduated in hospitality management, tourism, and geopolitics. Or, to put it in more concise terms, I’m a fairly worldly nerd.

I am currently working as a government slave for a certain county government that shall remain unnamed for the sake of my own personal safety and security. When I am not engaged in translation work or running errands, I am writing fan fiction and/or original fiction, ranting about society and politics, roleplaying, chatting, gaming, and otherwise pursuing largely sedentary activities that require as little sweat and sunlight as possible. I’m rather fond of white chocolate and vanilla ice cream. I am also agnostic and politically moderate; for the academically-troubled Americans easily influenced by propaganda who were just tripped up by those words, it means I’m “a godless Communist, but not as bad as those godless Communists”. Oh, and I love kittens and yuri.

This blog will largely serve as a scrapbook of sorts, sharing my thoughts, rants, muses, and just about anything under the sun that I 1) am comfortable sharing with a public audience, and 2) can actually remember to put here.
