Debating the 2016 Elections

The following debate took place upon my Facebook wall, after I posted artwork being shared by an acquaintance from here

Rayn:

“I hope my team wins so my point of view will be forced on the other half of the nation, or I’ll get angry.”

Johnson J.: What if one simply doesnt like liars?

Rayn: Then, there’s very little reason to vote.

Johnson J.: u know….. we already lost. Democrats wont do anything but the bare minimum.

Rayn: Both of these murderous control-freaks support the “war on terror” and the “war on drugs.” Their efforts to colonize and imprison the planet make them both enemies of humankind.

Johnson J.: well.. at least the dems arent running people over with cars and sending bombs to people’s houses…..

Rayn: As I already stated, Democrats ARE “sending bombs to people’s houses.” It’s called the “War on Terror.” Or, do you really believe that these foreign victims don’t qualify as “people”?

Rayn: And, even if you are like many leftists I’ve debated, and really refuse to acknowledge African and Middle-Eastern civilian targets of American imperialism as “people,” does this level of apathy extended to all of the victims of America’s bipartisan “War on Drugs”?

These institutionalized, force-tax-funded systems of legalized violence and murder far outweigh any of the combined damage done by private citizens, by leaps and bounds. But, even when examining the private sector, Republicans are not the only incompetents using violence as a political tool…

Israel Interferes in US Elections Much More than Russia

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

(Andrew BuncombeVeteran activist Noam Chomsky has accused Israel of “brazenly” interfering in US electoral politics in a way that vastly outweighs any efforts that may have been carried out by Russia.

In comments in which he accused much of the media of concentrating on stories he considered marginal and ignoring issues such as the “existential threat” of climate change, the 89-year-old linguist said in much of the world, the US media’s focus with Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 was “a joke”.

My Commentary: Shhh… They’re our colonial “allies,” receiving massive US foreign aid, and holding major lobbying power, so they meddle only at the behest of American interests.

Keep Voting Harder!

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Vote Nobody 2020,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

“Remember this November
This guy’s vote counts the same as yours 🤣

My Commentary: Vote harder! Then, it’ll really count!

College Students Bested By Postal Stamp Needed for Absentee Ballots

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

College Students Say  They Can’t Send in Their Absentee Ballots Because They Don’t Know Where to Buy Stamps:

() Democrats are counting on Generation Z, many of whom recently gained the right to vote, to help turn Congress blue in the midterm elections.

But 49 cents may be all it takes to keep these post-Millennials from exercising their civic duty.

On Tuesday, a Fairfax County, Virginia official said they are noticing a disturbing trend: young people failing to mail in their absentee ballots because they don’t know how to get a stamp.

My Commentary: Vote harder!

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?
