We do not vote anymore. We consider the system completely broken. And we do not pay particularly too much attention to politics. We think politics is a big playpen to keep many millions of people busy and entertained and pouring their money and energy into activities that will never actually benefit them. We also consider that politics keeps a much smaller number of people EMPLOYED off of these many millions who don't actually benefit.
Before people consider voting, we think they should make some effort to DISCERN the judgment of those seeking power.
Are they weak? Are they corruptible? Are they narcissistic? Are they sociopathic? If so, why vote for them? If you can't find someone worth voting for, why vote? Voting affirms the system, and the system is totally broken. Do you patronize businesses that abuse you as a customer?
Do you want change? Stop voting. Stop giving your attention and time and money to corrupt politicians. Stop watching teevee. Reclaim that time to do your own research. Use your Google-fu.* Get a grip on what's really going on.
Only a person of strong character can have a chance at standing up to the MASSIVE SYSTEMIC CORRUPTION endemic in our society. If you don't understand the scale of corruption, you won't see the problem. That is why the controlled media does not talk about the true scope of corruption. They prefer to keep as many people in the playpen as possible. People stay in the playpen as long as they think that voting will make a difference in their lives.
That is why we write about ORGANIZED CRIME -- to reveal the scale of the problem. If you don't understand that the entire system is MASSIVELY, SYSTEMICALLY CORRUPT, you won't understand that politics is a complete waste of time. Organized crime means that there are corrupt politicians, and corporate executives, and bankers, and judges, and priests, and doctors, and social workers, and military people, and police officers, and intelligence operatives, and customs agents, etc. who work together to conduct human trafficking, and drug trafficking, and weapons trafficking, and organ trafficking, and money laundering, etc.
See: spectacular unforeseen disaster
If you don't understand the scale of the corruption, you won't understand that powerful people don't want anyone with good character ANYWHERE NEAR their control centers. A person of good character might blow a whistle. Therefore, any person who makes any political progress must be completely controllable, or else they will be taken down, or if necessary, taken out.
Therefore, we assume there is some spectacular dirt on EVERY SINGLE SENATOR, and probably on EVERY SINGLE REPRESENTATIVE who has been in office for a few years. Compromise = control.
We assume that anyone new to the system will also be either already corrupt or else readily corruptible. Otherwise, they won't BE ALLOWED to get very far.
Anyway, what draws people to run for political office in the first place?
- To HELP other people?
- Or to HELP themselves?
We think people SELF-SELECT for a life in politics. We think they tend to be legends in their own minds. We think they tend to be easily corruptible.
Christine O'Donnell. We wrote about Christine before. See: process of analogy.
Christine O'Donnell has a familiar face and a nice smile.
Aangirfan calls to our attention that the Tea Party seems to be run by the CIA?
And we learn more disturbing things about Christine O'Donnell.
"I had a one-night stand with Christine O'Donnell" ~ We will spare the details, but there are many photos to back the story up.
Wilmington, DE – Communications Director Doug Sachtleben stated in response to the universal condoning of the Gawker story:
"This story is just another example of the sexism and slander that female candidates are forced to deal with. From Secretary Clinton, to Governor Palin, to soon-to-be Governor Haley, Christine's political opponents have been willing to engage in appalling and baseless attacks — all with the aim of distracting the press from covering the real issues in this race. ...
The National Organization for Women (NOW) on Thursday condemned the tabloid website Gawker for publishing an anonymous account: NOW issued a statement late Thursday stating that "sexist, misogynist attacks against women have no place in the electoral process, regardless of a particular candidate's political ideology.""NOW repudiates Gawker's decision to run this piece. It operates as public sexual harassment. And like all sexual harassment, it targets not only O'Donnell, but all women contemplating stepping into the public sphere," said NOW president Terry O'Neill.
Talk about changing the subject. Christine's campaign would like people to see her as a victim of sexism. They would like you to think that the question of her character is a DISTRACTION from the real issues.
But in fact, character is all that matters, whether male or female, young or old.
Foolish and easily corruptible people will never bring about change in the system.
If you want change, don't vote for silly people.
If they are all silly, don't vote.
