Join the Democratic election and choose your SIDE! If neither of the two front-runners fit to represent you in government, there are two other options at a voters disposal. Vote third Party?? After all there are plenty of other party’s who have held office in other developed nations. ie. Socialist in France, Greens in Australia or the Separatists in Quebec. Or you could sit back and have others choose your fate?? In the words of the late, great George Carlin:
“I don’t vote. Two reasons. First of all it’s meaningless; this country was bought and sold a long time ago. The shit they shovel around every 4 years *pfff* doesn’t mean a fucking thing. Secondly, I believe if you vote, you have no right to complain. People like to twist that around – they say, ‘If you don’t vote, you have no right to complain’, but where’s the logic in that? If you vote and you elect dishonest, incompetent people into office who screw everything up, you are responsible for what they have done. You caused the problem; you voted them in; you have no right to complain. I, on the other hand, who did not vote, who in fact did not even leave the house on election day, am in no way responsible for what these people have done and have every right to complain about the mess you created that I had nothing to do with.”
America the Greatest Country in the World…???
As the nation reflects on the past four years, some have gained a stronger admiration for the Head of State while many understand the system, and have grown tired of the illusion of a false choice. Obama? Romney? Is there any difference? Are we actually given options? For those who hold the real power (ex. the Federal Reserve) are their influences really at stake? These are just a few of the questions one must reflect on and assess to determine if we are truly living in a democratic society. After all if every fed up citizen got out to the poles just to “throw their vote away” and vote third-party the two horses in the running would fail to finish the race. Wouldn’t they??
Obamney the Illusion of Choice
Techniques such as the expensive Robo-call scandal in the 2011 Canadian Election where the Tories allegedly used campaign money to make illegitimate Election Canada calls to inform registered voters their ballot location had changed.
Regardless of the results of the Election, citizens need to demand the changes from our leaders (politicians and corporations) necessary to hand this world over to the next generation in tact. If everyone cared half as much as they do about politics and how tax dollars are spent as they do about Sports and Reality TV shows, there would undoubtedly be more political activism. But that’s the kicker, the masses are so mislead by media and are constantly bombarded by propaganda at every turn that many have been lead astray, zombified, disengaged and too distracted to care.
Quick change the channel there’s a presidential election on T.v. Oh wait here’s more campaign rhetoric plaguing every second leading up to this momentous event!
