I am going to head on over to my local polling place after I finish this newsletter. I am going to stand in front of some kind of device and flip a few switches or touch a screen a few times. I will be pretending to select people to whom I want to grant authority over my life. Yes, I am going to go and supposedly select people who are going to tell me who I can marry, who can take my possessions away and who can pollute my planet.
I am also supposed to believe that I am really selecting my own choice. The truth is we donâ€™t even have the right to choose the candidates who can run for these positions of power! When was the last time a $26K per year school teacher successfully ran for president or a senate seat? The truth is that vote counting fraud aside in most cases the system is rigged before we even enter a voting booth. If you are not pre-approved by the establishment you donâ€™t get the financial backing required to win an election; even if the voting process is legitimate! Thanks to Ronald Reagan the media no longer has to provide equal time to covering candidates. This is why you only know about two candidates for each race until you get into the booth and discover a laundry list of real candidates.
So, I am going to vote anyway. I am probably going to go down the line and vote for independent candidates. And then Iâ€™ll leave the booth thinking of the immortal words of NY Republican Representative Peter King; the words he uttered as he stood next to George W Bush PRIOR to the closing of the polls on election day 2004: “It’s already over. The Election’s over. We Won. It’s all over but the counting. And we’ll take care of the counting.”Â My only questions are who is â€œweâ€ this time? Think about it!
