your stance on this reminds me of a conversation i was having with a buddy of mine a couple of weeks ago about how he still wasn't sure as to who he
was going to be voting for in November. the moment he said this my mind started racing back to what happened in the 2000 elections, and what has
happened since the 2008 elections in which i myself voted for obama.
my take on it is quite simple - i'm not voting until i feel confident that my vote will a) be counted and b) go towards a candidate which isn't
propped up to the podium by wells fargo and friends. i thought this was going to be the case with obama, but surely enough some of his biggest
contributors were exactly what i was looking to vote against. the game is rigged, and "their" collective fate of going down with the sinking ship
has been sealed.
surely enough, though, i was quickly criticized for being a conspiratorial maniac. this has been happening to me quite often as most of my friends
have no interest in figuring out what the truth of the matter is, so they just go along with what i like to call the "official life narrative."
worry about the pretty candidate (that has been picked out for you), not about the state of the country. worry about when you want your favorite show
to come on, not about your favorite elected official - that's all been taken care of.
it comes to a point where i just don't want to vote. it's like asking me to choose between a coke or a pepsi. if anything, it feels more right to
not be a participant in this government takeover by choosing to not vote. in fact i feel worse about voting for obama in '08 than not voting for
anyone at all.
what's worse? not taking part of a disaster because you don't want to become a catalyst, or taking part in a disaster only to find out that you're
a contributing factor as to why it's so disastrous?
