You know growing up in the South, in small town America afforded m a view of the world (good & not-so-good) that many missed out on…..A lot of it a local…gossip, people talk kind-of thing……And With that you had the LOCAL POLITICS & how people talked about it….publicly & behind the scenes…..And being a Baby-Boomer we had on Saturdays a vast array of WESTERNS to choose from…..An invariably the plot often centered around the CROOKED TOWN SHERIFF or MAYOR……
Well as all scripts from those days were written with a prevailing moral to the story….it was more often than not ….GOOD verses Bad……And invariably the GOOD GUYS won 99% of the time….Well you grow up, you become a little more street smart & jaded….And too for my GENERATION there was LBJ & the Viet Nam WAR…… A HOLLYWOOD ENDING ISN’T REALITY….
My first year of college a reading requirement was Huxley’s , “BRAVE NEW WORLD”……So I read that & Orwell’s, “1984” & later Rand’s, Atlas Shrugged……I haven’t trusted a politician since……And let me say this…these people were not prophets…they were just smart people……
Let’s start with this premise or question; what do liars do better than anyone? They sell the lie……what do Politicians do better than anyone else….at least with expectations? Ask anyone on the street…..The general consensus will be they LIE with IMPUNITY…..and with no regard to adverse consequences…to them it’s just a MEANS to the END GAME…..
Sadly these days people are apparently too stupid to realize that…..Hell, I was taught that lesson early….You have to look at what they do. Not what they say…..
Well we Elected a P.O.T.U.S. (twice) for all the wrong reasons….. He was Black, Muslim & could read a teleprompter like no other before him….He had done drugs, lived in foreign lands & it was widely rumored to be AC/DC……Well in this American Idol culture that made him a SURE THING….Mr. NARCISSISM was going to bring this world together in perfect harmony…..he/she or it was considered by many to be a Messiah (Anti-Christ)…..Well look at his promises & look at what’s been delivered….. Well no promises, but a lot of hate….
There is the old cliché, United we stand & divided we fall……Well when the message of HATE is used to divide, how do you counter with TRUTH when no one is listening…..You have no podium , no microphone & there is absolutely no “Freedom Of The Press”
In the last week there have been instances after instances of the LIBERAL COMMUNISTS calling almost everyone who disagrees with them RACIST…..To me that’s kinda like the pot calling the kettle black….
And there’s the Land Grab fiasco in NEVADA that everyone says is about back rent & Endangered Turtles….Well that is total 100% BS….a lie….And the background truth is it’s a land deal For a CHINA SOLAR COMPANY…..brokered by the SNAKEHEAD Harry Ried, his Son & a judge the corrupt Senator bought off with an appointment……NOW REALLY, WHO WOULD HAVE GUESSED????
This is the crux though….When you’ve brought your EXPECTATIONS down to the level of accepting the LIE, the CORRUPTION & the CIAOS that ensues, who bears at least SOME OF THE RESPONSIBILITY…..You know it is a two-way street….Or it’s supposed to be….
BUT, WHEN YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO BELIEVE A WORD THEY SAY & you elect them over & over again….And you don’t hold them accountable for anything because that’s what you expected…..then buddy your own stupidity got you into this mess….And do you REALLY believe that the thief, the LIAR, the sociopath & the now-a-days Professional Politician are going to RIGHT all the WRONGS??? We all should know better, but we allowed this cancer to spread…. Where was the DOUBTING THOMAS when we needed them…..They were silent or were silenced….
