That says it for me, as well. I'm disgusted with the whole political process at this point. I guess, as they say, I'm awake now.

I've always been such an optimist...now I'm starting to realize that maybe my pessimistic husband has been right all along.

But the left is out to get you that is my story and i am sticking to it.

See, just as I was considering this, I saw Neo's avatar and wondered if I wanted to belong to anything with him in it, then, I scroll to his post and booya. How can a group unite when members of that group broad stroke anyone holding a position left of them?


There are now seven billion people on this planet.

Every single one of them is to the left of me.

I am the single most rightward individual on Earth currently, and throughout history comparatively. From my perspective, Atilla the Hun was a burning, raging, commie.

I am so far right that I wrap back around to the left.

Even I can get behind this movement (after a day of rest, that is).

Anything for a big-assed block party involving the whole planet!

Not so long ago. I'm still here. I'm OLD, but I'm not THAT old!



The haven't created those and they are all sacred cows that can't not be touched because those congressman value their jobs more than doing the right thing.


*Scratches head*

See, now you've gone and said THAT, and I've got to reassess all my priorities. Their jobs wouldn't be in danger if that wasn't what voters wanted.

Voters WANT self-destruction. They prove that by voting for it, and threatening jobs if they don't get it.

We're doomed, man. I got some spare room in the bunker, but you'll have to bring your own bullets - I can't stock up on EVERY caliber!

I've already determined my strategy for this election cycle. I'm going to crunch the numbers, and vote for whoever spends the least on their campaign. My theory is that they spend less because they have less to spend, and that means they have less corporate donations - and influence....

Jeez, I hope it doesn't turn out to be Commie Gus, but then again, he COULDN'T be any worse that Obama or Romney, who will be the main choices, and he will at least be more obvious in his agenda!

Benjamin Franklin once said the death of the "democracy" is when the citizen started voting themselves money.

Think we are long past that.

No doubt!

We can gain more converts with the ATS hand:



than the one the opposition uses:




Ours looks so much friendlier!

Personally I have been inspired to run for "office". Not ready to make any announcement yet, as I am currently investigating the "running for office rules".

And yes, I am serious. I'm praying for the time I need to devote to this, as it will take me away from my family. But my country's calling and I have a plan. But this plan is dependant on other "like minded" candidates in other States running as well.

You might call it the "occupy the White House plan",
I say vote "em all out".

The platform is easy - basically the Ron Paul platform.

Keep it simple.

Aye, We're DOOMED, I tell ya!

That might never have been possible, or it would have at least taken a lot longer to accomplish the destruction, if the legislative balance of power between the states and the people had not been destroyed by constitutional amendment, and the STATES were still selecting senators instead of popular vote.

That was the beginning of democracy and the end of freedom in America.

Yes, I said that just like I meant to. The beginning of democracy marks the END of freedom. It's just another form of self-destructive collectivism. I'm not any bigger a fan of democracy than I am communism or any of the other "isms".

I TOLD you I was way to the right of Atilla the Hun! I believe in Freedom... Liberty... Individuality... to HELL with collectives!

No earthly reason the people should have representatives in BOTH houses of the national legislature and the state have NONE. That's not the way it was meant to be. Balance was destroyed, and we got what we have now - an accelerating destruction.

We, the People, will EAT OUR YOUNG if given half a chance, as recent history proves.

This thread should actually be mandatory,for anyone who believes that our political system is working A-OK.

Make your Vote count this time,is my motto. Don't fall for rhetoric,dreams,or hopes.

America is a great country,with crappy politicians. Slayer is 1000% right.

You've done it now, Slayer, as I've made a thread on your very beef. You just had to start the movement.

Here ya go.

What liquid would you use for the enema? Warm water with Epsom, or perhaps a statistical analysis of people's opinions?

I think the latter fits.



It's all fun and games until reality sets in.

I am searching for e thread, Skeptic Overlord posted once, about his personal experience in Washington DC (couple/few years back)........that was VERY telling as to MANY problems within the current system.......it seems apropos to this thread here. One of the most enlightening threads I ever read on ATS to be sure...as it was a first hand account of what he saw going on all around him.......but Im not locating it (thus far)
edit on 3-12-2011 by theRiverGoddess because: LOOKING

cant FIND IT for nuttin' man........I suck at finding 'way back machine' type threads, MAYBE I will get lucky and he will see this post and give a link??

If he does, Im just 'wet blanketing' the fun in this thread here, but I DO think we all handle the stress of whats REALLY going on very well via humor.......and within ALLLL this funniness is a real seed of an 'idea'.....

www.abovetopsecret.com...
well GOOGLEdY DO!
anyhow he was fresh back from his visit and chilled by his new insights..........
I think a CHANGE I want to see is NO MORE LOBBYISTS .........just a few 'normal' aides to help in sorting out the what and where of questions.......NO MORE CORPORATE MONEY IN WASHINGTON, for ANY reason PERIOD.......

Great animations Slayer and a pretty funny post.

But something did occur to me, after reading the posts, almost every single person who posted here has a right wing perspective - I just wanted to point out that this group so far isn't as representative of ATS's as much as it is disgruntled conservatives.
