40% of Us Can’t be Totally Wrong!
If you are one of that 40% or so who doesn’t vote, as I am, it probably pleases you no end, as it does me, that the “pundits” are so completely unable to understand why we didn’t vote that they have been reduced to name calling.
Every time I hear one of those poor benighted dorks call me (us) slackers, lazy oafs, unappreciative of those “who died for our democracy to exist”, and all the rest of that horse-pucky, I want to grab him by the “you-know-whats” and squeeze hard until I get his undivided attention!
And how about that lame, old attempt at making us feel embarrassed for not voting, “If you didn’t vote - you’ve got no right to complain”.
Well for those of you who are so slavishly obedient; so doltishly unintelligent, as to try to insult good, honest, decent people whose only ‘crime’ was in not taking part in a farce, engineered by politicians, designed to give one political party an advantage over the others, let me smack you right back in yer stupid faces.
“If you did vote - YOU have no right to complain”!!
You are part of that farce. A willing part, no less. You put every one of those two-faced, lying, egotistical, slurping-at-the-trough, sons-of-guns in there to have a go at emptying our pockets to the point where soon we’ll, none of us, be able to feed, clothe, and provide shelter for our families. You get down there and wallowed right in the muck of deceit, chicanery, and out-and-out lies, spewed by the ton by those arrogant, would-be Masters-of-us-all. You help them to get into positions where they will continue to fill the pockets of themselves and their favoured few with OUR hard-earned money!
And you think YOU have a right to sling mud at US?!! You think you can tell us that WE have no right to complain. To imply that we are not good citizens because we can not, in good conscience, endorse, by our presence and participation, the nonsensical, humiliating, debasing and totally unnecessary rigmarole of VERY expensive “elections-to-gratify-egos!” Which basically change nothing; as anyone with an I.Q. of at least two digits could, and probably did, tell you.
I’ll tell you who has absolutely no right to complain, butthead. It’s YOU. You and all those other mutts who join right in and chose one of a bad lot to throw your vote to. Did you ever, for one moment, stop and THINK about what you were doing? Even once? NO you did not. You got all revved up on ‘patriotic-duty-to-vote’ and off you went like a good little automaton. You disgust me! I want to toss my cookies every time I hear one of you mealy-mouth brown-nosers babble your despicable nonsense.
Many fine, upstanding, honourable, thoughtful citizens of this country stay out of it. They recognize it for the mockery of democracy that it is and chose not to participate in it. They choose to make it clear, to the politicians and their Political Parties, that the old adage, part of which says, “You can’t fool all of the people all of the time”, has a great deal of truth in it. They also indicate that they are no longer fooled by the admonition to “work for change from the inside”. Far too many good men and women have broken their heads on that particular rock. And their bank accounts. And, saddest of all, their good, decent hearts.
The rot within is all pervasive and the clearest sign that this is so is the fact that the ballot does not have a place on it for the voting citizen to express his dissatisfaction with all parties and/or candidates. There is no N.O.T.A. (None Of The Above) place for him to put his ‘X’. Politicians are, quite understandably, disturbed at this idea. Their egos would suffer terribly if the electorate expressed its opinion of them in this manner.
As things stand at present, all we can do is “vote with our feet”. Stay away. Make it clear to the politicos and their hounds that they don’t have what it takes to represent this very large portion of the population. We do it in the only way allowed to us. (Allowed for now, anyway.) I expect the pols to soon close off that means of ‘communication’. Any day now they’ll pass a law forcing us to feed their egos with our “free” votes!!
