Once again our corporate controlled media set a conveniently flexible (flexes towards the rhetoric side, at least) standard for participating in the next presidential debate that excludes Gary Johnson – and yet somehow allowS the likes of Huntsman and Cain in. It’s bullshit. Pure, unadulterated, slanted Bullshit. The only purpose of including so-called ‘candidates’ like Herman Cain is to guarantee that there will be plenty of inflammatory sound-bytes that can be replayed endlessly to increase partisan division and hype for 3 days worth of out-of-context ‘news’ stories. I did mention the bullshit factor, didn’t I?
It is insanity, folks. We no more have Free elections any more than we live in a Free country. Why can’t more people see this game for what it really is? It’s a staged show; a circus…KISS is no longer ‘The Greatest Show on Earth’…our elections are. The thought that any of these life-size, walking, talking, caricature(s) of a bad political cartoon are being considered serious choices for leader of this nation makes me ill. You decide which candidate I’m referring to because that broad stroke easily covers several of them, up to and including Obama. It’s embarrassing to know that large parts of the world probably believe that ‘We The
Peons, People’ actually take ANY of the jackasses being included in the debates, seriously.
And every time I see someone say how much they are voting for X because they ‘would just love to have a beer’ with them, I want to give into my base desires and smash something (usually my monitor as it brings in the most of these comments) to smithereens with my battle-axe.
“I WILL CAST MY VOTE FOR LEADER OF A POWERFUL NATION BECAUSE I THINK THAT IT WOULD BE FUN TO DRINK BEER AND/OR HAVE SEX WITH THEM.”
Doesn’t it make you want to cry over what we’ve lost and how far we have fallen?
It doesn’t have to be this way. WE HAVE CHOICES. There are other options besides giving in to the corporate interests and politicians. TURN OFF YOUR TELEVISION. Do not participate in the commercial tactics and don’t buy tickets to the Insane Political Posses. Go hunt for your own news and knowledge; ween yourselves off the FOX-CNN sweet pudding and try some real cranial nutrition for a change. Stop supporting the system and the people who want to own and control you.
Please, please, please…cast your vote outside of the corporate circus tent…help prove to the world that the media whores and political puppeteers are not representative of who we really are. Vote Gary Johnson, Ron Paul and any other non-corporate sponsored (re: owned) and promoted candidates with views that align with yours. Donate. Blog. Promote. But above all…take back your right to honest representation in Washington and squash this media fueled and politically supported, circus filled with clowns and high-wire walking jugglers.
