a poc-mark meaningless
We shop and our parking
is validated by a disillusioned merchant.
This dilludes our truth,
the epidemic that is
seething, seeking of other’s validation.
“My Big Fake Breasts!
Validate me pigs!”
“My freedom to poison,
Validate me society!”
“Validate my fear!
Validate my anger!
Make me valid…”
That is the trick of a slaver,
whip into compliance,
Don’t do it for yourself,
remember you are not enough!
You are never enough!
You need my validation.
The mantra of the American upstarts,
Don’t fire until you see the whites of their eyes.
The eyes belong to someones child.
Those eye once cried over a scraped knee.
Those eyes once looked at someone and loved them.
Those eyes once had a soul behind them.
Those eye look down at hands that hold a gun now.
Those eyes look down at hands that hold a pill in one hand
and $700 dollars in the other.
Those eyes will soon close forever,
for when I see them clearly enough
I have no choice but to pull a trigger.
Ah, to wander lonely like a fool,
stuck in ancient, new politic blind.
We are a generation of revolution,
revisionist in truth and name.
We apologize for our slaughter
and will not take kindly to condesending frames.
Mistakes humanize authority, but only when there is room
We are the permenant revolution,
but we are not a commodity.
We are people,
We are human beings.
Sorry Clinton people but she will never win over millennials the way Bernie can because we remember her in 2004 too well. I really want people, especially Hilary supporters, to understand something. DOMA & the Iraq War were my generation’s Vietnam, most of us were coming of age when they were dominant issues, ie developing sexually and becoming conscious of our political situations. when she made those two blunders and I cannot tell you how rampant homophobia became that year, how many of my friends had their lives ruined because they felt their love was wrong, and how many people I have seen come back from Iraq never to know sanity again.That ladies and gentleman is what will determine the votes of my generation for years to come. I feel that people, especially Clinton supporters, should understand that votes for DOMA & the Iraq War literally ruined peoples lives, and while most democrats at the time put political popularity first, Sanders maintained INTEGRITY and stood against these atrocities that molded the perspective of my generation.
I do believe Clinton is on the right side when it comes to LGBT issues, I want that to be clear, but her silence on the issues until 2010 is not forgivable to me. If she does win Im sure she will now do the right things when it comes to those issues but only because it is no longer a political inconvenience to her.
That ladies and gentleman, is why I want Bernie Sanders. I do promise to vote for Clinton if she is the nominee because we must stop the GOP attacks on women, however because of my reasoning above I will not actively campaign for Clinton. (tbh its not like she’ll need it either Im kinda convinced no matter who wins the Dems kind of got this locked)
Look folks, I actually want to like Hilary, I really do, and I do think she’s unfairly and sexistly criticized. That being said, I can’t. I just can’t support her. I just cant fucking stand her, I find her inconsistent, pompous, out of touch with all demographics accept white women and seniors, overly capitalistic,no politician should ever accept money from private prisons, her stance on legalization is pathetic and I refuse to forgive any democrat who voted for DOMA or Iraq. If I’m ever going to rejoin the Dems they need to truly become the progressive party they claim to be and the only way to do that is to vote out the Dems who supported DOMA & Iraq and replace them with real progressives.
If Bernie wins the nomination I guarantee it will create the ripple effect needed to get those candidates nominated.
