President Camacho is a better president than Trump, and here’s why

donald (that’s what I call the current illegitimate president of the United States, he doesn’t deserve for his name to be capitalized even at the beginning of a sentence) is an idiot. You might say that he’s just like President Camacho from Idiocracy, but you’d be way off.

President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho inherited a mess. An actual mess, that is. Not the good economy that donald called a mess that he inherited from Obama. Crops were dying, the economy was failing, and people were starving. Rather than fill his cabinet with idiots, morons, and more idiots, he sought out the brightest people his world had to offer. One guy had won a contest. They didn’t say what kind, but since he tested all prisoners’ intelligence and got Joe out so quickly because of his results, it’s safe to assume it was some kind of intelligence assessment. So the first thing Camacho did that donald didn’t was go to great lengths to surround himself with intelligent people.

The second thing he did was listen to the smart people. When Joe said that the plants needed water, even the other cabinet members thought it was ridiculous, but Camacho implemented his solution without hesitation. He got some toilet water and sprayed it on the crops.

The third thing Camacho did that donald wouldn’t was keep his word. When he saw that the water worked to make the crops grow, he saved Joe from rehabilitation and pardoned him just like he said he would.

President Camacho was probably the most intelligent person in the world before Joe woke up. He was committed to solving the world’s problems, and he put the needs of the people ahead of the needs of corporations like Brawndo. We should be so lucky for Idiocracy to come true, because right now, it would be an improvement.

Not my president

I once called myself an anarchist. I believed that taxation was theft, that the nonaggression principle was the only rule society needed, and that, left to their own devices, people would self-organize into societies that more or less avoided using coercion against each other to get what they need.

I don’t think that any more. I believe that government is necessary to establish laws for the good of society and to organize it in a way that allows everyone the opportunity to have a good life. The government of the United States has never done that particularly well, but it’s a work in progress, and plenty of other governments do much worse.

But the current administration seems dedicated to doing exactly the opposite of what a good government should do. Donald has found the absolute worst people possible for every cabinet position in an obvious attempt to ruin everything that his predecessors have worked to create. He himself is the worst possible person to be president.

I’m not an anarchist, but the Trump regime is clearly illegitimate. We know Russia interfered with the election, we know Hillary Clinton got more votes (never mind that she pulled some shady tricks to win the nomination, that’s immaterial now), and we know that Donald is in way over his head. He can’t do the job he was installed to do. He can only make a mess that gets bigger and bigger every day he’s allowed to sign executive orders that he’s too lazy to actually read and too stupid to understand.

Donald cannot be president. For the good of the world, we need someone else. Anyone else.
