Our government and country is so far gone/divided I don't think we are going to come back from this for many years. How is one to trust the
representatives/establishment when they are the most corrupt. These aren't leaders. Not even close. This is sad, very sad.
Its funny how hate can blind people and consume them at the same time.
Best post. My guess. Politics mimics the entertainment industry but appears to be much more addicting, like crack or sugar. People consume politics
like they would football or the movies, they get to shut their brain off and be told what to think, how to think and when to think it. There are 2
entertainment industries that pretend to be separate, on opposite sides but they really are the exact same thing and same people steeped in illusion.
I mean look how all of the media companies applaud the participation in politics. 'oooo, you are an informed voter' ... 'you make a difference' ... '
you are wise and part of the winning/right team'.
What would people do without this form of entertainment, this american pastime? Don't you realize how difficult it is to fill up day already? Where
will I get my emotional, irrational fix? This is us against them dammit and WE ARE GOING TO WIN!!!!!!
As long as they have our attention, our support or anger (it doesn't really matter which) they know they have us hooked. We will eat up whatever they
are currently serving, even if they run out of new ideas, things from several years ago will regurgitate nicely. We will hang on their every word,
their every action and theatric. We will refuse to look behind the curtain because again, what are we going to do with our free time if politics
weren't so addicting? As long as we are bickering like there are two sides to this evil system, they are winning.
But hooray for MY side....the RIGHT side ... the side of GOD ... if we can just defeat the evil 'other' side, life will make sense again like it did
when we were children.
