To prove my point, The American voting IQ now ranks with that of a mountain goat, I have included the infamous video. You know the video, the one of the Obama zombie stating emphatically that Obama would pay for her mortgage and gas and all her woes in life were going away. The idiocy of the American voter doesn’t end with this display. I honestly cannot tell you how many times in my life, I have discussed politics with someone only to be informed that they vote a straight Democrat or Republican ticket. I cannot tell you how many times I have been told, I haven’t voted for a Republican in 40 years and I never will!
Excuse me? Do you honestly mean to tell me, you have not found one candidate in over 40 years, that would not have been a better choice than the Democrat on the ballot?
Before I go any further, I want to emphatically state that I am not bashing Democrat voters. I am not being selective here. In fact; let’s be clear, the same holds true for anyone that picks a party or a cause and so narrowly mindedly sticks to that viewpoint when voting. Let’s trudge down the trail of the Christian Coalition for a moment. Let’s use the example of ” I am only going to vote for the Christian Right candidates on the ballot”. How many of you remember our former Attorney General John Ashcroft? Mr. Ashcroft served as Attorney General in President George W. Bush’s first term from 2001-2005. The very first thing the Attorney General accomplished when assuming his duties was to “Cover” several priceless statues that have been on display in the Great Hall of Justice for many, many years. Why? His reasoning was that the statues were lewd, because “they showed the bare breast”. Can you imagine what would happen if this gentleman were to be elected to the Presidency? Would he demand that the Venus De Milo be covered? I do not care that it belongs to the Louve in Paris, France; IT IS OBSCENE!
The point I am making or attempting to make is this. When we go to the poll blinded by an ideology of personal self-indulgence, we are NOT voting for what is best for our nation, district or community. We are voting for a cause rather than the candidate! That is not to say that some causes are NOT worth voting for. Of course at this point in time, the all to flammable topic of Abortion comes up. I recently wrote an article and posted here at the Tea Party Tribune entitled; Will Covetousness Destroy America?. This article pretty much sums up what is happening to our society in regards to self-indulgence and the ballot box. To elaborate on this topic for just a moment; I have a Facebook friend that lives in the Bay Area of California. The fellow is a successful Attorney and by all accounts is a fairly high income earner. He absolutely doesn’t give a rip about liberty, freedom, taxes or the crippling national debt as you and I do. What he cares most about is that Obama is re-elected because he is Gay and his gay rights mean the most to him.
Do you honestly believe that these politicians do not know this? When they show up at a LGBT event and only speak about gay rights? When they show up to speak to a group of farmers and only talk about trade sanctions or the government subsidies for farmers. How do you think pork became so popular? Yes America, it is because of your own selfish desires at the voting booth that gave birth to the hundreds of billions over years spent on pork projects. Congressman Smith (fabricated person) down in Florida is a thief and a crook because he gave out $230M in pork, but my guy here in North Dakota is a good guy. He only passed out $120M in pork projects, but those projects were needed, we got a new little league ball field out of it.
Let’s face it America, being a United States Senator is a pretty good gig. You earn a heck of a salary, get a ship full of great benefits, great health-care, fabulous food provided by world-class chefs at the Capitol cafeteria and even a driver to help you get around Capitol Hill. In the end, it is a pretty cushy job. And to think, all I have to do is, once every six years go down to my district, tell a bunch of self-indulgent zombies what they want to hear and I get to keep this really cool gig going for another six years.
Due to the fact that this has been transpiring now for the last 100 years or so, we are now TRILLIONS in debt, have corruption running so deep it would take a staff of 4000 accountants to figure it all out. It would take that many accountants or more just to figure out where all the waste is and begin trimming that back.
Do not complain America! Do not complain about the lazy politician or the crooked politician. Do not complain about Barack Obama and his corrupt administration or the Congressman that waste millions on pork. YOU INSTALLED THEM! YOU TOLD THEM IT WAS O.K. TO BE THIS WAY. YOU TOLD THEM YOU LIKE WHAT THEY DO BY YOUR REPEATEDLY VOTING THEM BACK IN. YOU RE-ELECTED THEM OUT OF SELFISHNESS AND APATHY!
Until your ready to truly educated yourselves about these candidates and what they stand for and until your ready to vote for America, we shall continue this cycle of less than stellar elected officials. The lying, cheating and theft will continue and we will continue to languish in debt and self loathing as a nation.
When you as a group decide to come together, work for a good quality candidate, support that man or woman and send the good guys to Washington, only then will this begin to change. When you hear your teenager say, ” Oh I don’t care about politics, it’s stupid “, it is at that moment in time, you need to sit down and have a heart to heart talk. When you hear your neighbor tell you, “ won’t anything ever change “, sit down, pop open a beer and have a talk! It is up to you America, it is up to you to act and take that first step. It all begins at home, which means, IT ALL BEGINS WITH YOU!
The platform is coming very soon for all this to transpire. I will keep you posted, but we at Tea Party Tribune and Political Innovations are about to hand you the answer to truly changing America. Keep up with the Tribune and you can make a difference. Again; it is up to you. We can hand you the key’s to the car, but you have to drive it!
