Day 298:

Pull Back The Mask, See The Truth

For the last 8 years Obama was the classy well spoken wholesome face of a system that was deeply deeply fucked up. Now that trump is in office the mask is off and the people are starting to see what is really up.

Power corrupts, money corrupts, put the two together and you get The Congress.

Clean the lot of them out, start over if you have to. I am sure we can replace all these fuckers with better people. There are 300 million people in this country, this is not the best we can do.

Keep thinking like a Utopian.
