What is a leader? Here is my definition of what a leader is… A leader is someone who both inspires others and commands so much respect from them that they choose to follow him or her. A leader is someone who is honest. Someone who fights for what he or she believes in and someone who fights for those who cannot fight for themselves. A leader is classy. Intelligent. Honest. Well spoken. A leader does not waver. He stays true to himself and true to those that follow him. A leader has strong morals and great character. So what the FUCK happened to all our great leaders in this country?
Somehow we have gone from great leaders like John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King who have guided the people…led the people…fought for the people…bled for the people and died for what they believed in to sub par politicians and wannabe reality show celebrities trying to make themselves “important”…richer and more famous instead of being leaders. This is terrible. This is embarrassing. This is sad. I want my President of the United States to fucking inspire me. To make me proud! To make me feel safe. All our politicians should be leaders. They should look to be the voice of those who cannot speak for themselves. They have that power but should not be punch-drunk off that power. My President should not be arguing on fucking Twitter. My President should not be the joke of several memes. Picture JFK tweeting nonsensical bullshit or being the brunt of late night talk show hosts’ jokes and opening monologues. I voted for Obama…twice. The first time he inspired me. I felt that he received a lot of opposition his first term and then I gave him 4 more years to make something happen. Anything. But he did not. Obama was not a good President. He tried. He tried to be a politician. He did not try to be a leader. I voted for Hillary because I think that Donald Trump is neither a politician nor a leader. That’s for damn sure. But now he is going to be my President so I have to give him his chance because the majority of America voted him in. And that’s how it works…for now. It sucks yes, but let’s face it…Hillary was NOT going to be our savior. She was just the lesser of two evils and it sucks even more saying that. Our presidential candidates should be such strong and inspiring candidates…leaders…that it is so difficult for us to choose from but instead we are just voting for the one who we think “won’t fuck things up as bad as the other.” Because we DO NOT have any true leaders today to choose from…to vote for…to lead us. We do not have a JFK. We do not have a MLK. But that doesn’t mean that there are not any true leaders out there. I’m sure there is. This is America. We were founded by and built by great fucking leaders. They exist. They just need to step up. To give the people hope. To make us believe…again.
These last 5 T-pisodes were MY take on the state of things in this country and in this world inspired by both the presidential election and recent events. I had a lot to say, as I usually do. And I came here to unleash my thoughts out into the world, as I usually do. I hope I made a few of you think. Laugh. Feel. I hope I captured some of your voices. I hope someone, somewhere maybe learned something. And if you need a leader…I’m here. Fuck it, I’ll run in 2020 and you can bet your ass I have what it takes to make things happen. You all know my story. You all know what I’m capable of.
Next week I get back to usual T-blawg shit! It’s that time of the year again people. It’s time for the longest running T-blawg tradition. It’s time once again for Festivus!!! And I got some grievances and they SHALL BE AIRED.
Until next time. Always take it there.
