1. I don't like it.

Although the video is edited to be Trump-centric, Carlin's words unfairly engage in the "both sides" attack that also smears loyal, true, honest and stalwart Democrats.

4. George Carlin was one of the greatest stand up philosophers

Of all time. His use of language, His poetic musical delivery of His ideas is beautiful
Words matter I want my habeas corpus back.

5. This is nothing more than cynicism that's passing for wisdom.

His poetic musical delivery of His ideas is beautiful
I guess I just have higher standards. For the ignorant and weak-of-principle, things like this create an atmosphere of negativity: Negativity generates apathy. Apathy discourages voter turnout. Low voter turnout gives Republicans a chance to steal the elections.

Even though the video is "Trump-centric" ... Carlin is engaging the the "both side" bullshit and the New England-style "criticism" which accuses the Democrats as being just as bad as the Republicans. Nothing could be further from the truth.

This isn't helping. It's just giving a certain element an excuse to not vote... again.
