If voting made any difference they wouldn't let us do it.

Mark Twain

Don't Vote, it Just Encourages the Bastards

I am disgusted with the 2016 election.  I am even more surprised at friends reactions.  And positions.  When will people realize that it’s all the same.  The politicians are playing the same game,  The media is cheering them on.  And the rabid fans call in to the sports talk shows like they’re an authority.  But the two sides just have different jerseys on.  They are the same. And you are rooting for your side to win, and the other to lose.  When it’s THE SAME on both sides.

After it’s all done, we’re still screwed.  We each owe over $56,000 per person to all kinds of countries.  Sovereign debt. That’s $56 k for every man woman, and child in the US.  Imagine that number on a per taxpayer basis.  It’s more than most of you make in a year.  To support war in the Middle East, build a police state, flush money down the drain while the politicians, and corpratists got rich.  You and I have been sold into debt by stupid, venal, corrupt, politicians (well, except my politician)  NO, all of the politicians. And it was endorsed by the voting public. and reported by the corrupt media.  It is beyond shame.  And it’s time to end the charade.

Read the Zero Hedge article at the link on the bottom.

Notice no opposing argument.  I am pretty certain about this.  Especially after this last “Weekend at Hillary’s” adventure. Completely shameful.

Politics is the institutionalization of envy, a vice which proclaims "You've got something I want, and if I can't get one, I'll take yours. And if I can't have yours, I'll destroy it so you can't have it either." Participating in politics is an act of ethical bankruptcy.

  1. "Participating in politics is an act of ethical bankruptcy."
    And that there is the problem... that good people think this is true.

    It wasn't always that way... unless you have some disparaging remarks to make out our Founding Fathers?

    We need to make politics something GOOD people get involved with if we want to improve matters. This is a country By the People... we need the RIGHT people to run for office... and the rest of the people to VOTE for them!
