I guess it is necessary for me to take a moment, and comment on the election that just went under the bridge, and right into the sump hole. There is no way to express my frustration, and I’m not even a tea party member.
here I live, in a trashed out little town, inundated by foreigners, that is, out-of-state people, and we live in a cantankerous political environment here. That’s putting it mildly; we lived in the deepest southern part of Georgia! – Of the Pacific Northwest. We’ve got carpetbagage and porkbarrel politicians, right along with the rain and freezing weather. So how did all that voting affect us? How did it affect me? And how is it going to affect you?
the answer to these mysterious metaphysical question is, how in God’s name could Jesus Christ figure that out! No, he couldn’t. He was only the son of God. So they say. But trying to figure out how to vote nationally, and how it would affect us here is such a headache, I decided maybe I better never vote again for a president.
Why is that? – I asked the squirrels outside my window, who were running up and down the trees carrying acorns still. It’s a question of dynamics. Who is on your side and whose side are you on? Who is going to do the best job for you, never mind the government or the economy and screw all those other people!
supposedly,we Americans are supposed to vote the person and platform that is the best for the country. The healthiest, for the economy; the best that would fix the deficit problem of the government. But wait; there is a big fat raccoon in the woodshed.
because voting for what’s best for the country, and the federal deficit, may not be what is best individually for ME.
We have a problem in the United States; we are not UNITED. We are a bunch of groups all in the same landscape, and there is no such thing as “the United States” of America.
The state of Texas is out for Texas; ditto the states back east look out for the Easterners; politicians look out for themselves, and we vulnerable baby boomers and elderly know that we have to look out for our selves.-because no one else is going to, including our familys.
so when we all go out to vote nationally for president of United States(of which quite a few states have decided they wanted to secede from) how in heck name, is this bunch of divided people going to vote altogether for what is best for the country?
The answer is,-TAH-DAH!!!they are not going to. No matter what all the advertisement say, and if the Republicans earnestly tell us that we are going to fall off a fiscal Cliff, if we don’t do something to balance the budget, and cut all the “so-called entitlements” (which is code for Social Security and Medicare that you worked and slaved all your life for, and were taxed incredibly for by the federal government)that the federal government and the country are going to go POOF!!!!!—
and all because you nasty old people were selfish enough to want your retirement money back, that you paid for, from the feds, when you needed it. Naughty naughty! That is an “entitlement”, and you’re only a taxpayer so you are not “entitled”.and supposedly president Obama is on your side against the nasty Republicans who want to cut entitlements.
But Hark! What is that trumpet blaring, announcing Pres. Obama cutting $700 billion out of Medicare, so he could give it away to people in Obama care!
How does that figure in? So who is on your side? Obama doesn’t seem to be. And the Republicans don’t seem to be. They all want to do away with your retirement money, and trash your Medicare and Social Security!they can call it an “entitlement” all they want, it’s actually an “RETIREMENT”. And you already paid for it. BLAH!
if you voted in this election nationally, many of you came to this conclusion; “next time I will sell my vote for president on eBay instead.” That’s how valuable it is. Particularly for me.
and I won’t even care if the secret Arab terrorist buys it, my little vote will not do him any good either. The secret to voting nationally is this; the only way it will influence the White House, at all, if it does that, is for the votes and the voters to come in a huge wave, a tsunami, like a massive herd of thousands of cattle sweeping into the oval office, tearing up the carpet with their hooves, and finally getting cattle excrement all over the green room, in their desperate search for green stuff to eat.
That is the only way that your vote will influence the White House;there has to be a BILLION of you.without any hanging chads.
The other method which works very well and is often used in national elections (like JFK opposite Nixon) is this; you take thousands and thousands of ballot boxes and envelopes and voting machines, and you stuff them all full of one particular candidate and dump out the others. Very diplomatic. But, it works and it has worked, and it’s going to keep on working.and they know how to do this in Chicago.
So what does that leave for you, the frustrated and irritated national voter?individually, you are nothing. But if you are in a gang of Chicago hoodlums, then you’re really something.then you’re on the side of “change and hope.” Oh, and also dope.
the answer to “who’s on your side so who do you vote for?” Ultimately has nothing to do with the well-being of the federal http:// Me and my family, me and my group.government, the well-being of the federal deficit, and the well-being of United (supposedly) states. If you don’t vote in 1 billion herd, your vote counts for nothing; and if you don’t join the gang of thugs and stuff all the ballot boxes, and voting machines, then ditto you are a frustrated single voter.
Yes, frustrated voter the answer is “nobody is on your side except you.” That’s what you have to remember. Obama is not on your side, the Liberal Democrats aren’t on your side, and the Republicans aren’t on your side.
And if you’re a native Oregonian, even your legislature isn’t on your side; they are busy breaking a compact that they made with a big company, corporation to legally play by their rules when figuring money; and your own legislature has broken the law, and could be sued for millions of bucks.
Oh, excuse me millions of YOUR BUCKS!!AND your local power company, EWEB, which has lost money to a different type of power source, has decided that you are going to make up for their losses; and your power bills water bills will go up $15 a month, and 20% for water.WHOOPEE!!
I know this socialism has decided that everybody is going to share in a loss, of money, when there is a big loss, but why does EWEB the local power company, have to decide that it’s a socialist government, and you have to suffer for its losses? Are we really way beyond Russia and mainland China?
now you understand; your vote is not on your side. Your legislature is not on your side. Your president of whichever party, neither one is on your side. And your local government, which is stealing money out of the till of Lane county,and Eugene, is releasing dangerous prisoners into the population, because it’s trying to force you into passing another tax. Boy, they are really not on your side! Start digging the bunker!! Me and my family, me and my group. Me and my family, me and my group.
So who is on your side and who do you vote for? The answer is, you’re on your own side and you better vote for yourself. Whatever you have to do, to survive, do it, vote for yourself and your family, and screw all the rest of them, because none of them is really on your side.
Anyone who is paid years of taxes into Social Security and Medicare, and now is hearing that “it’s an entitlement” understand completely that it’s not your government, it is not on your side.Obama is not on your side; the Republican are not on your side.
in this “very un-United” states, even the other states may not be on the side of your state. Even races have got boundaries; black ghettoes in Michigan hates rich whiteys who come in, and Hispanic neighborhoods don’t want other races moving in, and riding their buses.
It’s a far cry from the years of that “melting pot of America” they promoted in our civics textbooks. And white people protesting against discrimination with blacks, in the South.Whatever happened to “United we stand! Power to the people!”
But, to end, you got your answer, Be On Your Own SIDE. And Only Your Own Side. Be as paranoid as a psychotic Phillip K. Dick, or a drugged out Stephen King, ; be suspicious of everyone, it’s not a mental disease, it’s a sad consquence of “The Divided States of America”, and it’s real.
Watch out for your side, and even be suspicious of ME. 🙂 Cause i’m watching out for yours truly myself. 😉
