This is the last anything I'm going to say about politics in public.
Yeah, we'll see how that works out. Psh.
Well, anyways, these aren't my words, but they reflect my thoughts
fairly accurately. Well enough.
Last night, I had a dream that Ron Paul was introducing the new
President of the United States, who was McCain. Prophetic? We
shan't know until November 5, assuming the machines work properly.
In other news, Facebook is still on Daylight Savings Time.
Throw your tomatoes all you want.
Ignore the Election
These days, you can hear or read all manner of rantings about how
we simply must prevent an Obama presidency, or how we simply must
prevent a McCain presidency, depending upon who is doing the
ranting. And lots of people have lots of bad things to say--most of
them true--about the candidate they hate the most. But what they
fail to see is that, having accepted the cult of "democracy" as
legitimate, 99% of those whining about how bad one candidate is are
then stuck supporting someone else who is just as bad. They are so
indoctrinated into the mindset of slaves that the only choice they
can even comprehend is "WHICH slavemaster do we want?" They are
incapable of backing up and saying, "Who says I have to support
EITHER of these psychotic jackasses??"
Oddly, those same people then project their own stupidity onto
people like me, who actually want FREEDOM. If I point out that
Obama is a nationalist socialist, they say, "So you like McCain?"
And if I point out that McCain is a nationalist socialist, they
say, "So you're a democrat?" Better yet, they rely on the ever-
popular, "If you don't vote, you can't complain." When the choices
are Hitler and Stalin, the ones who don't vote are the only ones
who DO have the right to complain. And yet the American peasants
continue to be vehemently partisan, one group insisting that we
should be the slaves of Obama, and one insisting that we should be
the slaves of McCain. If you suggest that we shouldn't be the
slaves of either one, most Americans will be unable to even
comprehend the concept.
Let me make this perfectly clear: The outcome of the upcoming
presidential election DOES NOT MATTER. Not in the slightest. Either
way, a collectivist, nationalist socialist is going to win, and is
going to advocate more power for government and less freedom for
you and me. You might as well have a national debate on what
species the First Dog should be, for all the difference it will
make. Whichever lying crook you defeat, his identical twin will
If only King George III had understood the trick, we'd still be
under British rule. All he needed was some other control-freak
doofus like himself to run against in an election. Then the
colonists would have been so distracted over the pointless debate
over which aspiring tyrant was worse, it never would have occurred
to them to tell BOTH would-be tyrants to get lost. If you want to
get bummed out, do a little research, and find out the level of
oppression, taxation and regulation that was inflicted upon the
colonies by King George III (which triggered a revolution), and
then compare it to the level of oppression, taxation and regulation
that today is inflicted upon us by Emperor George (Bush). How did
our glorious and noble revolution end up making things so much
WORSE for us?
Simple: "democracy" is the best tyrant scam in history. It gives
the illusion that the people have power, and so keeps them
perpetually wasting their time and effort on things that have never
and will never achieve freedom, instead of doing anything that
might work. And 99% of Americans worship "democracy" as if it is
the ultimate salvation. And they continue in that goofy belief,
even when they admit that they really aren't happy with the
politicians they have to choose from.
Ironically, in one way the candidates being as bad as they are
HELPS the tyrant trick. Plenty of people say, "Well as bad as
Barrack Obama is, we just HAVE to defeat him!" And of course, that
implies supporting his identical twin, John McCain. And on the
other side, people are insisting that McCain and his fellow neo-con
crooks must be stopped at all costs! And that, of course, means
People are so determined to vote AGAINST the guy they're scared of,
they hardly notice who they are voting FOR: someone just as bad--in
fact, someone exactly the same.
My advice? For starters, don't vote. Don't legitimize your own
enslavement by agreeing that ANYONE should rule you. Second,
completely ignore the election. Turn off the TV and the radio. The
election means NOTHING. It is a show, designed entirely to keep you
distracted, and to keep you thinking and doing things (like voting)
which will NEVER achieve freedom for you or anyone else. Trouble
is, people are so indoctrinated into democracy-worship that if I
tell them not to vote, they respond with, "So I should just do
nothing?" That implies that voting is the ONLY thing us peasants
could ever do about the situation--an idea which is, of course,
trained into the peasants by the tyrants' propaganda.
Now for the punch-line. For 99% of people, the political problem is
not an external one. The politicians are not the problem. YOUR
belief in the system, and in their "laws," and your belief that
"government" has the RIGHT to impose upon you any arbitrary command
it wishes, is the problem. You view yourself as a slave, beholden
to your masters, and believe that your overriding obligation is to
obey politician scribbles ("laws"). As long as you believe that,
why shouldn't the megalomaniacs fight over who gets to enslave you?
If the only question is WHICH master you should have, then you're
doomed either way. If, on the other hand, you start to entertain
the radical and extreme idea that you aren't the property of the
Republican crooks OR the Democrat crooks, you might start to see
new possibilities for freedom.
