“Let’s finish the job!” – Joe Biden

Half the country thinks “Let’s finish the job” is a call for progress and unification. The other half would call it a threat. Isn’t it funny how one statement can be a promise or a threat depending on who you ask? Since Joe Biden became president, a few things have improved, generally speaking, yet evidence of that in our daily lives is hard to find. I could ramble on but about the Democrats, the Republicans, the swamp in Washington, D.C., but Russell Brand says it so much better, and clearer, than I can.

Both sides are corrupt. That’s probably not a surprise to anyone anymore. Maybe there are a handful of honest politicians out there and maybe there really is a Nigerian prince in need of financial help, you remember that one who emailed you a few years ago? But the truth is this, whether you send money to a fake prince in Nigeria or a narcissistic politician in the U.S., you ain’t ever seeing that money again. I’d say the return on investment is zero in both cases.

That sort of sheds light on how I feel about taxing the top corporations, too. While I agree taxes should be fair (flat tax, anyone?), the big push from Democrats has very little to do with the common American. Ask yourself this, if the government enacts some kind of new tax on Nike (a company I despise for these reasons), what good will that do me or you? Do you think if Washington gets a million dollars more from Nike this year it’s somehow going to improve our lives in any measurable way whatsoever? No. Not at all. Government will find some way to take that million and squander it or just send it to another country in the name of “defending democracy worldwide.”

Joe Biden wants to finish the job. I’m just very skeptical on what exactly is the job he’s talking about?
