Independent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog, as always, welcomes everyone no matter who they vote for. Revelation after revelation keeps surfacing from the way Elon Musk has overturned a figurative rock, thus exposing all of the corrupt, fascist behavior by the former regime at Twitter and their allies in just one political party.
Moreover, the past several years have also seen de facto Third Party President Donald Trump overturn a figurative rock exposing the cesspool of corruption that career politicians have made of America’s political system.
Ironically, both figures have, apparently through a sense of noblesse oblige (and no doubt the ego that all history-shaking figures possess), done far more to expose and combat the deeply ingrained corruption than ANY of America’s career white-collar criminals. The bought and paid-for whores who hold office in the United States will apparently never forgive either Trump or Musk for rocking the crooked boat.
Both of them are in the sights of the powerful totalitarians they have angered, Trump for far longer than Musk, of course. Those two non-politicians have exposed the Banana Republic conditions in which the Joe Bidens and George W. Bushes of the country have mired America.
Now, obviously, no nation should have to rely on a pair of maverick billionaires dropping from above to perform such civic duties, and regular readers know I sure as hell don’t advocate for such action, but there’s no denying that Trump and Musk are waging the kind of battles that our elected officials, judicial appointees and “law enforcement” (LMAO) personnel should have been waging long before the corruption spread as far as it has.
The rot is even deeper than someone as cynical as I am used to suspect. Hopefully, we won’t make the mistake of making heroes out of often self-interested billionaires. It’s just sheer chance that two such wealthy men happened to become the catalysts for so many bombshell revelations that demand public discussion. Decades ago, people made the mistake of making heroes out of reporters just because a pair of self-interested men in that line of work happened to play key roles in public discussion of the Watergate scandals.
In the years that followed, reporters’ ever-growing love affair with themselves helped lead us into our current mess.
