I actually had to stop watching the first third party debate hosted by Larry King after a few minutes because every single one of them kept repeating
that the US is a Democracy (read pure democracy) right from the get go on the very first question that was related to ballot system and the privilege
of the two main parties.
I am not even sure when this meme got started and took hold of apparently every single mind in the country. The US is a REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRATIC
REPUBLIC, or simply put a REPUBLIC, NOT A DEMOCRACY! The founding founders themselves qualified pure democracy as MOB RULE, and created the whole
system that we do have to specifically AVOID PURE DEMOCRACY, as well as tyranny (how funny that nowadays we have the illusion of first one and the
reality of the second one).
And the funny thing to me is that so many have bought the illusion that we have fought wars overseas to (beside other equally illusory reasons) spread
"OUR" Democracy (read pure democracy) to the rest of the world!!! If it wasn't so absurd I might actually laugh. And EVEN if you still want to think
it is a pure democracy, which it isn't and if you still are pushing for it you are clueless, but lets say even if you do, you would know that even
that misperception is full of holes because even if the fakery of the two party system (two sides of the same coin with puppets at the forefront) or
the paperless voting machines that have been proven over and over again that they can be tampered with (and quite easily and quite often) you should
by now know that the only true power in the "election" process is the power of MONEY (which itself is another illusion, but that is besides the point
for this current rant), yes the money that is dished out by the corporate/banking cartels and other equally corrupting interest groups. So anyway you
look at it, from the true historical perspective OR the realist perception based on a historical misperception, THE US IS NOT A DEMOCRACY, PERIOD!
Even if you only watched John Adams on HBO for a historic perspective you would know that the electoral college was to be elected by the people of
each state and they would meet to represent their states and cast THEIR votes as representative of the people of their state in order to elect the
President and the person that came in second would get to be the Vice President. So unless I am not aware of recent changes to the constitution this
is STILL the current system, and in fact obviously IT IS and anyone that has watched any election night coverage knows it is ALL ABOUT THE ELECTORAL
COLLEGE votes, NOT YOUR VOTES. They PRETEND that your votes determine how the electoral college votes get "allocated", but that is pure HORSE S@#$T,
so the whole bound or unbound ridiculousness that went down in regards to Ron Paul was PURE BS.
The Electoral College was and IS to vote their conscious since they were elected by the people to do EXACTLY that. And of course they have taken ALL
of the emphasis out of the process of electing the electoral college so they can guaranteed that they will in fact allocate ALL of their votes to the
candidate that "wins the popular vote on the state. They simply highjacked the whole process by creating this illusion that you accept and then are
able to deliver on the illusion! That is what RIn Paul was taking advantage of, because he knows all they had to do was get their people in there to
vote their conscious (btw I am not a RP supporter), and even that they were able to corrupt their way out of. They literally kicked them out of the
convention! Such a blatant use of brute mafia like tactics and it WORKED! Sure it would not have been enough to get RP in, but it shows how desperate
they are to keep the illusion alive and avoid any cracks in it, which that would have been a huge crack on the facade of the LIE. And by the way that
whole calamity of a stunt, called the conventions, are pure theater and they cost over 100 Million dollars EACH of TAX PAYER MONEY!
And lastly, for your viewing pleasure:
Sorry Ben, obviously we were not able to keep it.
