We are slipping into into a totalitarian/authoritarian style oligarchial regime, and who's to blame?
Us. No state action can happen unless there is support or a lack of resistance by the people.
Voting has deteriorated to a "lesser of two evils" despite the fact that better candidates are usually voted out somewhere in the process, by people who like the candidate, because "he can't win".
There is no lottery, if u pick the right war-mongering tax thief beaurocrat that the other 9% of fools pick, you receive no reward. In fact, you are punished for your stupidity and sheeplike attitude. Youget an authoritarian state who taxes your hard work and uses it to violate your ethics. Whether you oppose illegal wars overseas, government funded abortions, handouts to pharmaceutical companies who lobby against cures, or whatever side of the imaginary left-right battle line you sit on, your tax money will be used to do something you personally consider a crime.
And guess what, you deserve it. If you do anything less than research all the candidates, including those in third parties, and vote where your conscious lies, you are an accomplise to the crimes of imperialist america.
Remember in class, watching videos of Nazi Germany, wondering how that could happen? How could the people of that nation let this wicked government take control and destroy its own people?
Now look around. In the past fifteen years nearly all of our Bill of Rights protections have been squandered, our middle class is being eaten by banking interests, and the state is one National Emergency away from a lifetime president.
You guys are doing nothing.
I emplore you to step up. As a citizen you have a responsibility to govern, it is your duty. Vote your conscience. If you think Dennis Kucinich represents your values, or the Constitution Party, or Mike Gravel, or Pat Buchanan, vote for them. If nothing represents your viewpoint, then run yourself, on whatever level you feel you can compete. So what if you lose, you get to bring your ideas and voice into the debate.
This idea that voting is a gamble, and picking the loser has a negative consequence is a sham that takes the vote from the people and puts it in the hands of the corporate media. There are guys out there who are willing to die to save you from what's coming and you won't even go to the polls and circle next to their name because your afraid to 'waste your vote'. If the millions of 'probably wasted votes' hit the polls this year, we'd have our country back.
Vote your conscience, not who your amateur political pundits or "telephone polls" think can win. Vote for who speaks for you, not for who did well in iowa and might do well in florida.
A vote for the lessor of two evils is a vote for evil, and when this state falls to wicked men, and dies to a stronger nation... Will you too say "I was just following orders..."?
