Oprah, Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump, #POTUS

i, personally wanted Bernie Sanders to be #POTUS and agree with his ideas on healthcare and reducing the defense budget and ending all the financial hoarding and greed and money embezzling the top 1% who run things do. more of an actual democracy by adding democratic socialism into the mix here in the States….i think #Oprah is way more than a “celebrity. shes very political in her opinions and shes humanitarian and very philosophical in her thinking. she seems grounded and spiritually aware to me and very international in her large open mind-
i think she appreciates other cultures and would be good at international diplomacy and negotiations. she’s a good speaker and has a very sharp mind. i believe in not throwing the baby out with the bathwater. i believe in seeing what is a of value in every person and then discarding the BS. every person has some wisdom somewhere even “Donald” i am sure… i see Oprah as grey- not 100% “good” or 100% “bad” everyone is complex…maybe everyone is partly Luke Skywalker and part Darth Vader, Part Gandhi and part Hitler? i admire Oprah and find her intelligent and inspirational. and it it amazing that in this culture in the USA an “overweight black woman” can be so successful! i see Oprah as positive and authentically living her potential pushing her dreams as far as they can go and hoping others will be uplifted and want to do whatever their own dream pursuing is-
i don’t think she assumes everyone wants “wealth and fame” everyone has their own desire and path. i don’t think her message is shallow and materialistic but if someone wants to chase material wealth and is just playing an ego trip game that is their choice….i think her message is EMPOWER yourself, do what you Love and don’t let anyone discourage you including YOURSELF. i am personally thrilled that Oprah made Eckhart Tolle’s message of “the power of now” more widely known and more mainstream- the idea of being present and meditating on the present moment awareness is tremendously helpful and valuable and healing in today’s stressful world with so many feeling suicidal and living in poverty etc. struggling to survive etc. people love to fight and argue. DRAMA drama DRAMA, i’m tired of this “us” verses “them” when someone is rich and or famous no matter what their skin color they get heavily judged and scrutinized and projected onto. back to focus on whatever i can do in this world that is hopefully helpful.
to each their own! and i’m not perfect either i have a big dark side along with my wonderful traits. just loving and accepting myself and others and not judging is one of my biggest goals right now. can i appreciate life as it is? etc. and make the best of this life- while i am here on planet earth? this is all temporary. and truthfully in the USA to become president one must have access to millions and millions of dollars or be good at raising huge funds- it’s a bizarre money corrupt system in politics these days. i do wonder and would guess that Oprah’s platform would be to fight for medicare for all #singlepayer healthcare for all citizens equally in the USA and she would hopefully fight for the rights of POC, women and mentally ill and low income citizens. but who knows? just my thoughts as of today.
the only thing i can think of that i like about Donald Trump is that he is a “rebel” and likes to break rules- it’s just that the way he believes in rebelling i disagree with. i see Bernie Sanders as the good kind of “rebel” wanting to fight to medicare for all and higher wages for the low income (and lower wages for those who hoard money and make too much while paying low end workers poverty wages that have been stagnating for over 20 years) and for the equal rights of women and #poc and to lessen the military budget AND take better care of the veterans and protect the environment and invest in solar power= shake things UP IN A GOOD WAY.
