There have NEVER been FREE
elections on this planet and if there has been one that was honest, it was
probably an accident.
When the presidency in a land of
300 million can be won with 527 votes, something needs to change.
Like SOME religious doctrine,
SOME political doctrine is sound until men (usually wealthy) of marginal
morality (that's how most get wealthy) begin making modifications to fit their
Money is power, power
corrupts, too much of either, in the hands of too few, will destroy any system
of government. That is a historically documented statement of fact.
THOSE WHO CHOOSE TO IGNORE
HISTORY WILL REPEAT THE MISTAKES OF THEIR PREDECESSORS, THE DESTRUCTIVE RESULTS
OF WHICH WILL BE COMPOUNDED BY PROGRESSION OF TECHNOLOGY, MILITARY POWER,
FINANCIAL ASPECTS AND GROWTH OF THE POPULATION EFFECTED.
A nation is a grouping of people
who share a COMMON, history, language, culture and ethnic origin possessing or
seeking their own government.(Go Based on that definition the
United States of America is not now and never has been a nation.
We are a confederation of states populated by many
ethnic groups with many historical and cultural differences allegedly operating
as a Federal Constitutional Republic though there have been extended periods of
inconsistency in the application of that philosophy. The only thing democratic
about our political system is the name of one of the two parties APPEARING to
compete for control.
There has NEVER been and NEVER
will there be a true DEMOCRACY on this planet without a quantum shift
THE FOUNDERS OF "OUR" GOVERNMENT
CONSIDERED DEMOCRACY MOB RULE. That is the reason the elite, who have
controlled government and business since St. Petersburg was established and
later, after the Mayflower landed, denied the vote to all but land holding, tax
paying white males until the late 19th century when adult white
males who owned no property, but paid for the right, were allowed to vote. From
then until 1920, when women were entitled and their husbands decided for whom
they would vote, state governments could still set requirements to control who
did and could not vote
Several tomes could be filled
with court records of all the legal actions filed and contested over what so
many today take for granted then sit on their dimpled butts watching returns on
Fux news who predicts the outcome with 2% of precincts reporting. Well the u
isn't very far from the o so it was an honest mistake, not to mention apropos.
If I offend anyone let me know and I will explain why I am not going to
Restrictions based on race,
Gerrymandering, poll taxes and literacy tests were some of the most effective
controls. LITERACY SHOULD BE REQUIRED since it would be rather difficult for someone who
couldn't read the ballot to vote unless someone else told them, and/or paid
them, to vote for a given individual.
Our last three elections saw
shortages of voting machines that caused lines long enough to discourage many
inner city poor, machines that didn't work also causing long delays or machines
that cast votes for a candidate other that the one the voter selected on the
machine and there was the least subtle corruption involving the infamous
hanging chad in Florida which corrupted that election. When the obviously
BIASED Supreme Court stopped the purposely slow recount and declared the winner
even though, and this is the item that exposes the arrogance, the absentee
ballots from the TROOPS FIGHTING, DYING AND BEING MAIMED in a CORPORATE WAR
being waged in the middle east-at the expense of the taxpayers-HAD NOT BEEN
COUNTED!!! I knew, after watching those, (string of obscenities), election
results slither through our system that this country was on a slope too
slippery for even the best mud and snow tires to find traction. An applicable
analogy given the stark reality that our election process has become a mud
slinging battle between ALL parties involve and a SNOWSTORM of rhetoric that
could blind and has blinded many of the already apathetic voting public.
Both of our "competing" political entities think most of the
voting public shouldn't have the vote though they still make empty promises
(LIE) to the poor to garner theirs.
