Well, the great tragic-comedy that plays in the United States every two years is back again. It's election time in America. Did I say tragic-comedy? Perhaps I should have said "Theatre Of The Absurd."
Every two years, not counting special elections, career politicians come out of their offices, senate chambers, governor's mansion, and of course the White House (although not this year of course) and lie to the people.
They promise this will get done and that will get done, and as usual, nothing ever happens - at least not to improve the lives of American workers, and most especially the White Workers. Indeed, things constantly deteriorate.
Here in California, we have a very important senatorial race. The two candidates are Republican Carly Fiorina, and 28 year incumbent, Democrap Barbara Boxer. So who's the better choice? If you ask me, it's neither. As a wise man once said, "Voting for the lesser of two evils is still voting for evil." Let's examine them. I don't need to elaborate on 72 year old Boxer. Her record of liberalism and Obamaism is well known. You may not know who the senators from New Hampshire are, but most people know who Boxer is.
Her opponent is Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlitt-Packard. She has quite an impressive track record. She went from a secretary to CEO over the years. This is what makes her actions towards the workers even more unconscionable than someone who was born wealthy. She used to be of the White Working class. Yet she laid off thousands of her employees, and outsourced their jobs to China. That same year she rewarded herself with a 300% raise, and a new yacht. Absolutely reprehensible. Maybe I shouldn't be so hard on her. After all, she works hard. She deserves a little raise, right? When have any of you had your pay tripled in one year? Not me. I don't know anyone else who has either.
Do you think Fiorina is going to work in the best interests of the people? Damn right she won't. She's going to work in the interests of other Judeo-Capitalists such as herself. Now she might say that what's good for big business is good for America. Ordinarily she might have a point. But all big business will do is to continue to outsource our jobs to Turd World Countries and increase their profits.
The California Governor's race is no better. We have liberal Democrap Jerry Brown, who has already served a term as California governor. He bankrupted the state with his overspending. Now, the sheeple of California seem willing to give him another chance just because California is a Democrap majority state, and everyone is mad at AHnold for doing so bad a job.
How about hypocrite Meg Whitman? She says she will fight against illegal immigration, yet she hired an illegal as her housekeeper. She claims she didn't know. This Mestizo girl worked for her for years. Whitman knew. She hired her as a source of cheap, exploitable labour. If elected, she'll do little about the illegal problem. She and her sort want them here so they can hire them instead of American citizens and pay them slave wages.
The candidates are a joke. As far as I'm concerned, they are wasting my time.
On the other hand, there will be many propositions on the ballots. These are not a waste of time. For example, here in California, we have one propostion that if passed, will stop the paychecks of all politicians until they can agree on the annual budget, which is late every year without fail.
There is also one that will prevent state leaders from using state funds to pay for things that they were never intended. For example, it is common for the state to "borrow" from the education fund, to pay for expensive social programs. If passed, they will no longer be able to do this.
One of my favourites is the one that would strictly define what a tax is, to keep our leaders from misslabelling taxes as fees. What does that matter? Well, if the state wants to impose a new tax on us, they need a two thirds majority vote. A new fee only requires 50% plus one vote to pass. The state loves to levy new taxes on us by calling them "fees". The people of California can stop this on Nov. 2.
There is one that would legalise Marijuana. This one must be defeated. The legalisation of pot is just the first step towards the legalisation of all drugs.
For those of you who say these propositions are meaningless, let me remind you that California has term limits because of a proposition. Because of Prop. 8, Gay marriage is still against the law - for the time being at least. There are many other examples, but I won't list them all.
I normally don't waste my time voting for these lying, hypocrital weasels called professional politicians. They all help support an evil, corrupt system that does nothing except to continue to widen the gap between the rich and the poor. I usually put in a write-in candidate as a gesture of contempt. In 2008, I voted Homer Simpson for president. But the propositions are a different matter. It's our chance to let the politicians know that we're fed up and not going to let them get away with ripping us off any longer.
If you are registed to vote, I urge you to get out to the polls on Nov. 2 and through the various propositions of your state, let these vipers know we're not letting them get away with their crapola any longer. If you're not registered, do so by Nov. of 2012. You can vote for Peter Griffin for president for all it matters, but you need to research the various propositions, and make your voice heard.
