I hate this asinine saying. It’s a thought process brought upon by a broken and corrupt two-party system. With a government full of career politicians in both major parties whose sole purpose is to retain power, what makes you think that compromise is the answer? The practice of actually serving citizens in government is long dead.
Compromise isn’t true compromise anymore…well, for citizens at least. And remember the word ‘constituent”? A constituent hasn’t existed to a federal bureaucrat in God knows how long. Laws no longer help the public as a whole. Laws are designed to strengthen federal power, buy votes from a certain voter base, and keep citizens divided. It really doesn’t matter who wins the White House. Checks and balances are dead, and the President’s agenda is no more dangerous to us than that of both houses of Congress, or federal judges.
There are so many different groups that facilitate the establishment’s agenda. The two-party system is now one of the greatest tools of the career politician. The masses stay divided. That’s all that’s needed to retain control over the public. Right-wing voters attack left-wingers, and vice-versa. Moderates on both sides who consider themselves neutral cry for bipartisanship. In the end, we’re still left with politicians eroding the Constitution at a rapidly growing pace.
As I’ve stated many times before, there in not one member of the federal government who is not part of the establishment (and has not in some way infringed on our rights.) Government continues to grow stronger, as the private market keeps suffering. Rights continue to be taken from some, and favoritism is shown towards others (non-citizens in a lot of cases).
What is it going to take for the divided to wake up and realize the dangerous path they’re bringing us down? Will government continue to do just enough to keep the masses in their hypnotic trance? For any who calls this post “doom and gloom,” guess what? You’re part of the problem. It goes much deeper than just voting. Unwitting voters support government intrusion into our education, health, energy, personal safety, food supply, and our child care among other aspects of our life.
Suicide voters are groomed to attack those who don’t agree with them…which translates to those who don’t agree with the government.
Individual responsibility has become taboo, and like-minded libertarian thinkers need to start coming out of the shadows in mass numbers. We need a new mainstream, and we need to vote for anti-establishment libertarians who believe in personal freedom. That’s the only plan I can think of that will turn the tide against tyranny…and it seems pretty easy to me.
