The culture of corruption within Government is implicitly direct to the proportion of the ineptitude of those people within Government actually
governing over to begin with, this meaning of course that in essence the mass of society itself is so ignorant in knowing how to stop this flood of
corruption that they have in essence given up trying, or think that they have it down through voting that person out of office, but what of the
politician who gets into office who knows how to play the game by getting lobbyists to pay for various types of assistance to stay in office and
cannot get thrown out unless they go against the very people who in essence hold their financial leashes of control?
SkepticOverlord’s trip to Washington D.C. is no surprise to me, not that he went, but the response of the politician was absolutely no surprise to
me to say the least, because to politician’s this is all a giant game of getting theirs and screwing the public, in essence they know they can get a
paycheck and to Hell with John Q Public and Jane N Voter in the end, because after they get into office, whether they had assistance getting there or
were truly voted in to begin with, as long as they “play the game” they can keep the ball of corruption rolling in keeping up appearances that
they are in fact doing their job. Some would decry the answer Bill was given as corruption itself or that this just is not fair but what got the
system to that point to begin with really?
I know the simple answer to this of course because I have studied politics for all of my life and it is quite simple in the explanation as it is in
the decision of who did it to begin with, the reason why as well as the reason why it can never be stopped. Are you ready for the answer because it
will shock you and might just piss you off to hear it? The answer as to why this political corruption is allowed to continue and multiply ten-fold
every time some idiot gets into office is as follows :
You let it happen
Yes, you, you’re the one who let it happen to begin with, you are to blame.
You forgot that television distracts you from the events within politics because you would rather watch the Super Bowl or World Series than C-Span and
know exactly what Government is up to at all times.
You forgot that alcohol lowers your inhibitions so you do something stupid and wind up in jail.
You forgot that wrestling is fake and is meant as entertainment as an illusion to distract from reality.
You forgot what it means to actually give a damn about a cause and fight for it tooth and nail, politically.
You forgot that looking good in a hot car is not as important as the good gas mileage you should be getting, using it instead as a image enhancer
instead of transportation from Point A to Point B, being a tool and instead you became the tool.
You forgot that politicians will say anything and everything just to get into office, anything but the truth.
You forgot that you like to bitch, whine, and complain about Government, instead of getting behind the podium yourself.
You forgot that smoking weed is less important than the criminality of the action whether you believe in it or not which led to, or eventually will
lead to your arrest and discrediting yourself, because you became a convict and are not a victim to the system but a victim of your own stupidity.
You forgot to get off your round bottom, and quit acting like a square peg, and fit into the round hole.
You forgot to get out there and vote for someone, anyone, even if it was Garfield so that the other guy would not win when you did not want the lesser
of two evils.
You forgot your real voice and as well forgot how to stand up and question authority when it is incorrect, wrong, or salaciously criminal, instead of
just reading about it.
You forgot to log off of ATS and actually go about getting into a political office yourself because you defeated yourself into believing it is just
You are to blame whether you want to admit it or not, you, yes you reading this, but it is not too late for you to change all of those things above
and actually get off your collective keister’s.
So, the question is, are you just going to post a comment here and bitch at me, and go back to perusing ATS threads, or are you going to go educate
yourself in how to get into politics, how to defeat a lobbyist who approaches you, how to defeat someone who finds that skeleton in your closet and
intends to blackmail you to vote for their bill sitting on the House floor?
You see, I have been on here at ATS for heading on four years now, and among other things I actually read books which support the thoughts I spread
out here for the online world to see, not just some often propaganda laced or propaganda filled “news” website, say for instance Alex Jones,
nothing against the man but he’s your only source you are far off the margin and in for a rude awakening, but actual technical manuals on how the
military is set up, how Law Enforcement works, books on the Central Intelligence Agency, written from various perspectives, books on politics and how
to get into them, books on forming non-profits in order to form a collective business that will positively affect the world, I joined the Boy Scouts
of America in order to practice those things in a manner and through that have gained experience immeasurably in the “politics of politicking” as
the saying goes, I write on various topics and commit my thoughts to actions.
I have seen many people here on ATS I like and share view points with and some I would rather not ever hear speak in public let alone an online forum,
but when push comes to shove, I have not heard one American citizen do anything more than bitch, whine, gripe, and complain about the change they want
to see, or the wrong they want righted, or about the politician who is corrupt and they do not get out there and win that politician’s seat. I have
a wide view of the problem, seeing both the finite details as well as the bigger picture, and I can see some really interesting thoughts on Government
here on this fine website, but over all I have yet to have seen anyone actually take a step in the right direction towards becoming a part of the
bigger picture itself.
I guess in essence I am telling you that if you are not a part of the solution then you are a part of the problem.
So, bottom line here, folks, put up or shut the Hell up.
Voting is not the end of your resources to get someone in or even out of office it is the first step only.
Knowing what happened is just not enough, even combined with informing someone who is not in the know like you.
Hearing about something from someone and sharing it just is not enough anymore.
Writing to your Congressman or Congresswoman, while is a good thing, you are more than likely going to get a form letter reply, unless you make it too
overwhelming to ignore and follow it up with sending it onto a newspaper for comment.
Calling your local politician is going to get you through the runaround maze of polite requests to call again or set an appointment, unless you just
happen to luck out.
Protesting will get you some attention but because of the bias of media you have to watch out for the slant or spin they put on it.
I have only heard of one other ATS’er, who like myself has spoken about the possibility of going into politics and I gave him a bunch of
suggestions, website references, book suggestions to read and whatnot.
I have started my public platform right here on ATS in all of the threads I speak on, sometimes short and sometimes at length, without breaking the
terms and conditions I might add.
So, what’s your reply? Am I going to get some nonsense answer or am I going to get an excuse?
Did your dog eat your documentation you were about to submit to go into office?
Did an alien beam it up to their mother-ship so that they could peruse it and never returned it?
Did it fall through a wormhole and go through to another dimension where it is turned into a Constitution?
Did it jump in your car and run away with wife or husband because you just weren’t up to keeping it in check?
Perhaps Bigfoot stole it when you were out and about when you forgot your camera that one damn time?
I mean it here folks and I mean to get to the bottom of this because I am not going to be the only ATS’er who makes a difference for their country,
and I am not going to give you the excuse of waiting for me to enter politics and see how I fare, you need to get into politics with me and with other
ATS’ers instead of being a bitching, whining, complaining, excuse-giver here on a forum where the real world is only a mouse-click away.
I am not suggesting you join some group here on ATS, because that would be contrary to the terms and conditions, however I am suggesting that your
time on here might be better spent than being divisive and blaming the other guy on the other side of the political aisle from you, other than blaming
the politicians in office, other than blaming the Government itself, other than blaming anyone else in the entire world.
You have no one to blame but yourself, so how about you get over yourself and get out there and enter into the arena that is politics and possibly
make that change, possibly make that difference, possibly beat these idiots at their own game where politics is just about what they can get for them
and where you might actually change the flow of the stream of stupidity flowing out of Washington D.C., Capitol Hill, and the White House.
I keep hearing how people want to rise up and pick up their guns and “take care of business”.
Why not rise up together as a whole across America and every citizen simultaneously run for a political office?
I bet the Government would pay attention then and I sure as Hell bet a majority of the politicians would crap their pants.
And, here’s the best part, they cannot
do a single thing about that either.
Why you might ask?
Well, you’re not threatening violence, you’re not rioting, you’re not protesting, you’re not building a bomb, you’re not holding a rifle,
you’re not causing mischief, you’re not doing a lot of things they can retaliate against, and the best thing of all, you’re not doing a damn
thing illegal, so it’s on the up and up.
Why not instead of telling the man to stick it and only have one voice heard, instead collectively tell them to get the Hell out of office and make
room for someone who means to actually do their job?
Now wouldn’t that just beat all that you might actually beat them at their own game and get to win doing the right thing for the right reason at the
