But Beez....it all boils down to the fact that we keep voting the other party out of office every decade or so....but we will always go back to the
same pile of vomit we left behind 10 years prior. Like a dog.
I get that there is a thin layer of loyal folks on one side or another. Group think is a trait that people sometimes have. No biggie there. But
what is that, maybe 15% on either side? The majority are moderates. Its the "moderates" or undecideds that unseat incumbents. Its the moderates
that don't seem to really get it. THey aren't loyal to their brand. That particular group has no real loyalty beyond how they are or how mad that
are at the moment the ballot is cast. Things are going well? Vote for the incumbent. Things aren't going so well? Vote for his rival.
You get a choice of either Nacho Cheese flavor, or Cool Ranch flavor. But there is no "regular" flavor.
We all tolerate and accept that anyone outside the two parties really doesn't get a chance to run. They get blocked. And when that happens, it
makes national news. Everyone knows about it (remember Perot....not like it was hidden that he was being blocked in some states). Yet like most
other scandals of real import, nothing happens.
WHen you are a "made man" you get some perks of the job. Politics used to be about running a country. Now it is about making as much money as you
can under the banner of "official" government business, while hiding it from the awareness of the people.
And if you really think about it, the irony of the whole thing is just absolutely ludicrous. The entire planet will get behind a government against
an individual solely because the government legitimizes their own criminal behavior. For them its called "tax". For the mob its called "a
protection racket". For them its called "tax seizure". For the mob they call it a "bustout". We could go on and on, but it can be summed up by
stating that government in the US has become nothing more than a legalized mafia operation.
And I am not the first to say this. Smedley Butler was fairly damning in his assessment. Which brings up my final point: i am 40 years old. in my
lifetime there has yet to be a man worthy of the Oval Office that has presided there. Why would I think any different? In the 20's the top ranking
goon for the US Gov. admitted to being the top ranked good for the US Gov. Thus, there is no blame for what any of us support. It is WHO we support
that I take issue with.
