Can more consecutive mal-election seal the doom of decent governance by the election route?
Other than perhaps by dint of gross stupidity or masochism, it is difficult
to comprehend why and how "the great American electorate" votes for such ilk as
we've witnessed for the past thirty years. One more consecutive mal-election
may impel the choice for revolution (one such a "treason" already highly honored
and deeply revered in our history) which does not require majority support,
merely a small minority intent upon urgent correction the indentured system does
not offer, a correction that could in fact be realized peacefully and
productively if Dimocrats could desist from parading strawmen/fems for Greed
Interests upon the People's stage. "...and Lo! the bird is on the Wing" with
Lady Hillary Macbeth ads already appearing three full years in advance of "the
While on the subject, it's high time also to trash the "lesser-evil"
copout. (Stalin better than Hitler! Oh no! Wait! Wait!) The arena of the
Of course the Repukians are a wretched choice, but there is some merit in
the position that they are more straightforward, however treacherous in their
advocacy. In any event, the Clinton and Obama misrepresentations should finally
have discredited the "lesser-evil" rationale for the charade of any scintilla of
intelligence or morality it ever may have enjoyed.
One wants desperately to believe there is still a (just one more?) chance
in 2016 for recovery of a republic that actually represents the best interests
of the People. That chance may be wasted, perhaps destroyed if we revert to
family hierarchy: Bush, then Bush...Clinton, then Clinton. Shades of the
Divine Right of Kings! And all wretched by dint of performance and blatantly
It is indeed up to us -- those to be governed -- to summon
the determination to examine the actual qualifications, the true record, the
character and the credibility of those who propose to lead us. The guide of
partisanship having been discredited by thirty years of mal-leadership, we
must reject further such misdirection by either Republican or Democrat
persuasion, most especially such nebulous mantra bullpucky as "Hope and Change,"
and further to take a hard view at a candidate's actual
performance record, such as a Secretary of State (of all
positions!) leaving a trail of slaughter in the Middle East in the wake of her
Yes, 2016 may be our last chance for decent governance by the election
route. We must not squander it to the wretched partisanship and
lesser-evilism we have largely unconsciously allowed imposed upon us for the
past thirty years.
Leaving behind a treacherous government now addicted to perpetual war, its limitlessly greedy and power-lusting masters, as well as the retarded albeit smirky Republicans and their evermore clonish Democrat colleagues, a braindead electorate (more...
