We vote because we believe it will make a difference. We vote because we have been carefully steered through fictional ideologies, presented to us as “us against them”, the right v left, Democrat v Republican, liberal v conservative. It is all a ruse. Not one of the people who wave the party flags, who promote the party platforms on either side of the fictional isle belong to anything other than the ruling party of the District of Criminals. This one party system which has a death grip on the country isn’t about to let go; but I’m not voting for any of them. I’ve decided that I will not vote for the candidate most likely to cause the least destruction just because he or she isn’t quite as corrupted as the pretended opposition.
We have choices between two things….rotten, and not so rotten at the moment. If those are the only choices I have, I refuse to choose. I refuse to be forced to choose between the lesser of two evils. Evil is evil; changing the face of evil by rotating which faction is center stage, makes it no less malignant. I will not be forced to vote for candidates I firmly believe are set against us.
We need the choice of voting “no confidence” on our ballots. We need to be able to prevent anyone who cannot garner at least 50% of the vote, from taking an official office. We need to end corrupt politicians sitting in office who got only 20 or 30% of the vote. We need a means to convey our disgust at the lack of honesty, integrity and moral character that a vote of “no confidence” could provide. And we need to prevent career politicians from nesting up in government on a minimal number of votes.
Regardless of which camp you like to think you are in, voting will simply deliver you more of the same no matter who wins. Just as the Democrats picked up where the Republicans left off in 2008, the changing of the guard on congress will simply see a continuance of the agenda already in motion. The Republicans will simply pick up where the Democrats left off. But you are supposed to believe there is some great and vast difference between the right and left. We’ll get rid of those nasty Democrats and put the Republicans back in there running things…..yeah….that’ll fix it. Wait…Weren’t the Republicans the ones who set this mess up during Bush the Lessor’s tenure as Prez? And, weren’t the Democrats going to ride in to save us from the nasty Republicans?
What changed? Not a thing; and nothing will change after the November election regardless of who controls the House or Senate. Just as the Democrats swore they would repeal the anti-American Patriot Acts, which helped them win in 2008, and who then went on to expand and extend the Acts, Republicans are now promising to repeal Obamacare. And, just as in 2008, this election, should it go to the Republicans, will see the implementation and expansion of Obamacare under their watch. There is no intention to repeal or change anything.
