The Forces Of World Destruction In The United States Have Become Mainly Concentrated In The Republican Party

Over many years the party of Lincoln, once the party of hope, has done a one eighty. The radical abolitionists Republicans of the 1860s have meandered lock, stock and barrel into the dark corner of the Universe. From President Herbert Hoover feeding the Great Depression, to President George W. Bush (actually it was Dick Cheney) blowing up the economy and the Middle East, to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell fighting, every step of the way for political reasons, President Obama’s valiant effort to pull the economy out of the ditch, the universal offset of destruction has come to reside in the Republican Party.

Indeed, the Republican Party has become a beacon of encouragement to the KKK, Neo Nazis and every sort conspiracy nut job floating about the media biosphere. Pandering to tribal fears and grievances is the primary calling card of today’s Republican world.

And now the most reckless and stupidly fraudulent con man on the face of the planet has crawled into the party of misery, trailed by a host of creepy villains to infect and destabilize our government and the planet altogether. Wise men, men of good faith everywhere, despair of Donald John Trump’s ascension to power, while the hopelessly depraved and innocently gullible frantically cheer him on.

But we must not blame the wicked. They are the inevitable product of the universal law of probability balance. The universe, you see, has dictated that they must exist. They are what they are because it has always been written as such. Creative good, because of the greatest law of nature, must always at some point in time be offset by destructive evil. It is a dirty job, but poor folks like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and their hate mongering ilk, along with a fleet of poisonous politicians of the Republican Party — and now lead by the Donald — have been designated to be the bad guys.

So as all planetary hell breaks loose to new highs of awfulness you can blame it on the screwy universal system of probability balance.
