i don't do editorials often, but there's plenty i have to say: know this. (suck it up. this gets no cut for your convenience.)
i finally checked my voicemail today (as most of you know i don't do with any amount of regularity) and along with messages concerning the halloween party i threw a couple of weekends back, i had two messages regarding voting. yes, you can see my previous posts on what i didn't do election day. i tried to sleep through most of it. for me, there was no nail-biting or watching CNN or staying tuned for anything. it was a given: democrats were going to take everything they could, and it would still do not much good.
on a personal level, i realize that with democrats in office, those dear friends of mine who are overseas will get to come home for longer than a span of a few weeks' time for leave, and for that, i'm very grateful. what i'm not happy about is that DEMOCRATS winning over REPUBLICANS just shows how america is still RETARDED.
we are cowed into believing that it's ONLY the dems who are an option versus the old, warmongering, pockets-lined GOP. since they've had their chance to screw things up, we've now ponged ourselves right back over to the other side of the same court.
what if there is no court and it's simply a box that everyone's thinking is stuck inside of?
the meaning of this metaphor is that donkeys and elephants have failed us time and time again. why keep going back and forth between the two? who in their right mind would really expect them to be so different when all they do is play into one anothers' agendas and pockets? does anyone remember from their history classes that there used to be the Whig and the Federalist and the Anti-Masonic and Greenback parties? the list continues. at some point, ALL of these were major contenders. where did we go so wrong!? today you can barely google search political parties and be able to get a hit on anything listing more than Democrats and Republicans.
now, i have a friend and coworker who did go cast his vote for libertarians. probably two who did that exact thing. what frustrates me is when someone who voted JUST to get republicans out of office (which translates to "they voted for the democratic candidate whether this person believed in that person's politics or not") he or she looks DOWN upon those who cast their vote for an ACTUAL chosen candidate. they'll say things (especially in this buckle of the bible belt RED state we call Georgia) like "you're just wasting your vote!" or something equally as debased as "democrats probably could have taken georgia if you had voted for them!"
listen, there's no way Georgia will ever, Ever, EVER be one of those treacherous, haphazard "blue states" until an election comes after the supposed return of Jesus. got it? i'll just as soon wait for santa claus to come visit my christmas tree with presents as i will for this "Rapture".
so, basically, we're given only two options: death by quick torture or death by slow torture. which will you choose?
when someone chooses something that is NEITHER of those... well then. they're just UNPATRIOTIC *and* hurting the democratic process by THROWING AWAY their votes!
please tell me you understand sarcasm.
so, then there's the idea that dems are going to do soooo much better than the gop and it's time for all of us freedom fighters to relax and put down all our signs, stop organizing any sort of truth movement, and just let the dems handle it.
WRONG. never has a more wrong sentence or idea been uttered.
what people have to come to understand is that if federal funding is behind a candidate, chances are both your supposed "choices" for candidates answer to the same master.
yes, that's right. they are thinly veiling their MASS amounts of similarities with a few little tiny differences. again, i say, it's the main principles by which you rule a mass of people: divide and conquer.
never has there been a better example of this than within the realm of CHRISTIANITY alone! we have methodists and baptists and presbyterians etc etc etc. each one has their snide little comments about the other because "methodists are just baptists who are afraid of water uh huh huh" and so on.
you divide the people on small issues and thusly they are too busy fighting amongst themselves to notice what you're doing at the top. it is THE way to rule people.
truth is that Democrats don't give two shits about what happened on 9/11 any more than the Republicans do, they just might not politicize it as much in the name of war now. oh, well, great. that's ONE for our side, but then again, we still have a government who is IGNORING that there has been government complicity in the MURDERS OF 3000 AMERICANS IN AMERICA, NO LESS! fucking Pelosi sits up there saying "we're not going to waste time on impeachment because of course that's the last thing we want to do is spend all of our time in office talking about the republicans!"
IS THIS FUCKING HIGH SCHOOL OR IS THIS OUR SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT?!
you have to be fucking CRAZY lady! i know she's up to be the first female speaker of the house and that's all well and good, however, if she's not going to have the testicular fortitude (no pun intended) to go after treasonous bastards, then she's NO BETTER than they. she should be concerned about how to try and convict every single one of the people who assisted in making 9/11 happen and then in trying and convicting every single person that helped kill 3,000 more of our men and women in Afghanistan and Iraq. these are not just NUMBERS, people. these are FACES and don't you forget that. every single one of them have families mourning their loss just as every single person blown to bits because of exploding buildings on 9/11 have families who, too, mourn their fallen.
i couldn't even get past the second page without having to go outside and cry. no one understands the severity of the situation. DEMOCRATS WILL DO YOU NO BETTER JUSTICE THAN REPUBLICANS.
my friend brandon made the astute call of saying now that the democrats have the house and senate, they're probably going to take away peoples' guns too. i mean, no republican could do that while in office because it goes against their hard *PARTY LINE*. well, they still get the job done one way or another - disarm the masses - and that suits ALL the bureaucrats. what can't be done by one party gets passed ("miraculously" by the "voice of the people being heard" at the FIXED polls) by the other party... when in reality: they are all working toward the same goal, and it's certainly nothing you as an average citizen would want.
so, there you have it. now we have a governmental system that we're going to be in awe of for two long years of programming on CNN about them locking horns on issues being vetoed left and right that's better than any reality tv programming you can get today. congratulations.
it's just like the american people to all be sitting there on election night, grinning from ear to ear that the democrats won. well woopty fucking do. it's SUCH a victory. not for THE PEOPLE, but for the bureaucrats.
see if you can make a difference in the truth movement with dems in office.
see if you can make a difference about the sanctions placed on Iraq fifteen years ago (desert storm-era sanctions) that were still in place causing all of the people of Iraq to not have proper medicines for their babies that our government is still seeing to killing today with dems in office.
see if you can not just LOWER but ELIMINATE the illegal application of the 16th amendment to tax our personal wages with democrats in office.
see if you can stop the fearmongering and fingerpointing of our government at "all those evil terrorists of the world" with democrats in office.
see if you can change the inaccuracies at the polls and the fraudulent "elections" we have currently in place with those good old democrats in office.
see if you can change the system of always needing FEDERAL FUNDING for a political party to even be RECOGNIZED in elections or televised debates with donkeys in office.
see if you can recover some of your civil liberties that are INHERENT and ALLOWED by the constitution and bill of rights with the jackasses in office.
see if you can get a look at the bigger picture with democrats in office, and see that they're just another pretty puppet set out there to distract and divide the people and for their masters to then conquer all.
