One of the most difficult concepts I try to get across to people who are still heavily invested in voting, is to stop fueling the political machine. Here we are in April of 2015 and everyone's declaring they are running for office. Hillary and Jeb and Chris Christie. Isn't it great? Look at all the choices we have.... actually we don't. They are all the same.
Then we had hope and change Obama. Sigh... even John Stewart from the Daily Show called that "heartbreaking" It’s generally heartbreaking – that’s what the gig is.” If that's what the 'gig" is, we need a new "gig"
Almost every person I know, doesn't vote. Most of them never have. I can't blame them. I did talk to a woman on Friday, who clearly was invested in Hillary Clinton and can't wait to vote for her, she got all irate with me, because I had the nerve to call Hillary; "Nixon in a pantsuit." She was probably 70 years old. When I talk to others who don't vote or just don't care about politics they laugh at that Hillary joke.
I don't know anyone who's life has turned around for the better, as a result of voting. For me, the economy is unchanged.The housing market still sucks. Everyone I know is still struggling.
Billions of dollars will be spent on this election, all I read about is Chris Christie saying Social Security is broke and he can fix it by making everyone work till their 69 years old. After Destroying His State's Retirement System, Christie Sets His Sights On Social Security | ThinkProgress
Yeah, Christie has worked wonders here in New Jersey, Another downgrade for NJ's credit rating
Rand Paul (#CantStandRand) is worried about "radical Islam"most people are more worried they'll be shot in the back by a domestic policeman than terrorism. Jeb Bush is supposed to be "the smart one" maybe he is since he's being advised by Karl Rove and his cronies. He has all the defense contractors behind him and the Saudi's, he's ready to go to war with Iran the way his daddy and brother made war with Iraq.
When all you have to choose from are people that have not done one thing to improve Americans lives while they've been in office and you're expected to believe that their behavior will magically change once they become president, that's delusional. It's a fantasy, if you want fantasy, go to Disneyworld. I am not voting for these fakes anymore. I will not support the colossal waste of money this election will bring on. Millions of Americans need help, their quality of life is slowly degrading, none of these politicians are going to do anything about it. The only thing that you can be sure of is that corporate welfare will be the order of the day, but welfare for struggling Americans will continue to be demonized. Our bloated military budget will grow, while we have to privatize Social Security until it's just gone. Nobody cares. Until people decide to throw off this yoke of unjust oppression, we will continue on this journey of a race to the bottom.
