The election is over, and I will be the first to admit that what I expected to happen, per a rebellion by citizens against the failing policies of the Biden Administration and the Democratic Party, failed to happen.
On the other hand, my expectation of surprising and unexplainable wins by Democrats in key elections materialized exactly as expected. I am not saying that there was corruption, but I am also not saying that there wasn’t, and I await the test of time to expose any corruption that may have occurred.
In response to the very middling election results, I am immediately reminded of two different quotes. I am unaware of them ever having been put together to conclude a single opinion, so I am claiming to be the first to do so, at least until someone can show me somewhere that someone else beat me to the punch. The first quote was uttered by our thirty-fifth president, Mr. John F. Kennedy, who stated that: “the ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all.” The second quote, that should never be forgotten, was uttered by the late, great Mr. George Carlin, who quipped: “think of how stupid the average person is, and realize that half of them are stupider than that.”
The Democratic Party was founded in 1828, and the Republican Party was founded later in 1854. Together, these two parties have held a death-grip on all politics here in these United States ever since. The Libertarian Party was not formed until 1971, prompted because of concerns regarding President Richard Nixon’s cancellation of the convertibility of the United States dollar to gold bullion and the introduction of fiat currency by the Nixon administration.
Beyond their concern for sound money, Libertarians stand fast upon the concepts of civil liberties, non-interventionism, laissez-faire capitalism, and limiting the size and scope of government.
The Libertarian Party has fought the corrupt two-party system for more than 50 years now, fighting against corrupt policies enacted at tax-payer expense and fighting for the recognition of the most basic human rights for all, something that should be reflected by the support of the multitudes. Yet the most recent election results indicate that the majority of voters apparently suffer from Stockholm Syndrome.
Many years ago, philosopher and comedian George Carlin did a bit that he called “The American Dream.” In that skit Carlin ranted several points, including (and cleaned up and condensed for print) that: it’s never going to get any better, because the owners of this country don’t want that. The big wealthy business interests that actually control things and make all the important decisions. … Forget about the politicians; they are irrelevant. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice! You have OWNERS! They OWN YOU. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls. They have the judges in their back pockets, and they own all the big media companies, so they control all of the news and information that you get to hear. …They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying to get what they want, more for themselves and less for everybody else. But I’ll tell you what they don’t want … they do not want a population of well-informed and well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That is against their interests. …They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table and think about how badly they’re getting (shafted) by a system that threw them overboard more than 30 years ago. …You know what they want? They want obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork and just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly poorer jobs with lower pay, longer hours, reduced benefits, the end of overtime, and vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it. And now they’re coming for your Social Security retirement money so that they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street. They’ll get it all from you sooner or later because they own the place! It’s a big club, and you and I ain’t in it! …It’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe, …with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. …The game is rigged, and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care! Good, honest, hard-working people; white collar, blue collar, it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on. Good, honest, hard-working people, of modest means, continue to elect these rich (#!&$%!#) who don’t give a (flip) about you at all, and nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue (phallus) that’s being jammed up their (hind-quarters) everyday; …It’s called the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.
We have been betrayed by both of the two big parties. It is time for we-the-people to wake up and be cognizant of what the two current parties have actually done to us and the devaluation of our money. It is time for a radical change. It is time for a revolution.
John F. Kennedy said it best when he declared that “those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”
The ball is in your court. What are you going to do with it, throw it back and keep watching the same game, or change the game to a better one?
