The American Political Circus

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following status update here, posted by Voluntaryist, Larken Rose, and originally shared it to my own wall, along with commentary…

Larken Rose: When people believe the circus that is paraded in front of them, they are constantly complaining about how one PARTY, or one POLITICIAN, did something nasty, evil, etc. And as long as the puppeteers can keep people thinking that way–instead of seeing it as THE RULING CLASS doing evil crap–then people will keep focusing on handing the power to some OTHER party or politician. And when they get their way, they will then make excuses when their “own” politician or political party does evil crap.

The end result is that almost everyone in the country bitches about the evil crap done by the ruling class, while at the same time VOTING for it and making EXCUSES for it. Meanwhile, the ONE ruling class, with all of its puppets (“right” and “left”), is laughing at all the dumbasses who keep falling for the game.

If you are a Trump supporter today, you’re the exact same kind of pathetic dupe that was cheering for Obama back when he was the Puppet in Chief doing evil crap. And your excuses and attempted rationalizations don’t change the fact that YOU helped to further move authoritarianism along by cheering for yet another puppet. You can either continue with the delusions and psychological denial, pretending that Trump is gonna save us all, or you can stop being a total dumbass, acknowledge that he is just another puppet, and stop acting as a useful idiot for the most evil people on the planet. Your choice.

My Commentary: What up, marionette?

Your Masters Are Counting on Your Vote!

“If you vote, you cannot complain. You wanted a master and you got one.”

My Commentary: Vote harder, suckers! Your masters are counting on it!

Discussing NY Assemblywoman’s Introduction of Tyrannical Legislation to Enforce Mandatory Voting Through Use of Penalty Fee

The following correspondence originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post, “NY Assemblywoman Introduces Tyrannical Legislation to Enforce Mandatory Voting Through Use of Penalty Fee“…

Democratic Assemblywoman and tyrant, Deborah Glick

Rayn: Manufacturing the “consent of the governed” through penalty fees… Seems legit…

Steve K.: If true, it would be unconstitutional, violates the 1st amendment for one thing. Not voting is one way of protesting.

Rayn: Indeed! Penalizing those New Yorkers who choose to Vacate The Vote in an effort to Withdraw Consent is not only an assault against free speech, and freedom of choice – it also represents a shameless effort to run an extortion racket, too! These political parasites are nothing more than a legally-protected criminal caste!

() A state lawmaker from Manhattan wants to make it costly for New Yorkers not to vote.

Assemblywoman Deborah Glick, a Democrat, introduced legislation this week that would establish “compulsory voting” in the state and punish those who don’t vote with a $10 fine.

“Mandatory voting would drastically increase civic participation and transform the political arena by making politicians more reflective of the constituents that elected them,” Glick wrote in a memo submitted with the bill.
