POLITICS IN PRISON

I’m talking about actual politics (like what is happening in the presidential race), rather than “prison politics” (like what the latest gossip on the yard is). I always here the same thing from the people who like Donald Trump: he says what he means without fear. Yes, well, so does a five-year-old. And so does every asshole bully that I’ve ever met (and I’ve met a lot). The point is WHAT he’s saying. And all I here is blatant, nativist fear-mongering: going after immigrants and Muslims, and promising manufacturing jobs and trade protectionism, will make your life better. Well, it won’t. And people are going to be continue to be disillusioned with the politicians they elect until they realize that their own views are faulty, and their politicians are just reflecting that.
