So, I was at the ol' community college campus today, and I saw a man campaigning to get on the ballot.
So there he was, trying to get signatures. Some folks agreed, some folks didn't.
Now, I agreed with the idea that anyone should be able to run for office of congress, so I signed.
Frankly, there were parts of his politics I didn't agree with, but he looked crazy enough to be a politician, and therefore, I wished him well.
He was having a discussion with a very young military veteran, and by Jove, I saw people refer to socialism and redistribution of wealth without a
hint of irony in their voice.
I'm of the opinion that these words have almost entirely lost any meaning they once held, and that they're buzzwords as of current.
You ever notice that no one's opposed to the redistribution of wealth up towards the rich? Everyone's perfectly fine with the CEO of Bank of America
having millions and millions of dollars. It's only when there's been a huge protest that the people of America get rebound psychosis and start
having flashbacks to the McCarthyist fifties. Then they become extremely concerned with the well being of millionaires. They cry out, "Communist",
or "Nazi", or just plain, "Lunatic", to anyone who disagrees with them. It's a real laugh and a half to see all these temporarily downtrodden
millionaires come out to defend their more fortunate brothers in arms. Do you think the wealthy will reward those less well off folks who champion for
them, against their own interests?
I don't give a damn what political alignment a person is, republican and democrat are just puppets of the same wealthy business interests.
Where's the president of the people? Where's the president that embodies the deranged, malnourished American that exists more and more these days? I
want a politician who's as crazy as I am. And so I guess I'll have to run for office myself. If you want something done right, you have to do it
yourself, I guess.
