YOU BE THE JUDGE AFTER READING THIS
Everyone is partying, happy, and claiming victory since Republican victories dominated the elections and they took back control of Congress.
Everyone thinks that by voting the R's back in it will be the answer to many of our problems.
Even alot of the Tea Party groups are claiming victory as they have backed establishment R's who have won their positions. It looks like these Tea Party groups are starting to postitute themselves by backing R's who have shown no history of adhering to the Constitution or defending the people. Isn't this contrary to what they stand for? What's wrong with just not backing either candidate if neither is good? For some reason people can't do that....they feel a need to back SOMEONE.
I'm not saying there aren't ANY established politicians who defend the people's rights, but so dammed few left, that in alot of races there is no good choice.
So, are we to vote for the lesser of two evils? I have very strong opinion on that. It still begets evil but people keep doing it because they have been trained to think that way by the Party system. Click link for excellent info on that: THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS IN VOTING
People continue to get caught in that same old Dem/Repub trap. They have been so indoctrinated to "Party" line thinking, a vicious cycle they know not how to break. "Be loyal to the Party"...."Be loyal to the Party". Have you ever used your brain to think and ask yourself....what does the Party have to do with freedom and the Constitution? NOTHING!! The Party's are only interested in self preservation, control, power and influence.
People seem to have this dependence on politicians to solve all of our problems....a sad commentary that will never happen.
Don't people see that the answer is not in government but in the people themselves, yet they abdicate their responsibilities to the government, the very one that is removing their freedoms and taxing them into bondage. Have people lost the ability to help themselves and each other? Do they not know how to go about the process of returning to a government by the people? Do they not know how to go about the process of regaining their freedoms, protecting their families? Why are there no neighborhood groups in perilous times like this, all across the country, banding together to protect each other from out of control unlawfull government?
From my observation, it seems to me that people think their chronic kneejerk reactions at the voting polls will accomplish something. The masses are like a pendulum swinging from left to right, right to left. They get mad at the Republicans for ignoring their will, violating and over taxing them. They react by voting in the Democrats to punish the Rep, thinking they may find some sympathy and relief. After a while of abuse at the hands of the Dems they do the same thing in reverse....voting in the Rep to punish the Dems, again thinking this will make some kind of difference.
Is this the reaction of intelligent, well informed people with some backbone? HARDLY! Or is this the chronic reaction of a lazy, brain dead populace?
Have people lost the ability of discernment, to see through lies and empty promises? OBVIOUSLY SO!
So people think the conservative Republican Party is going to save them, but that Party has been hijacked nationally by R.I.N.O.'s (Republican In Name Only). The Rep Party only gives the appearance of conservatism and these R.I.N.O.'s are not the conservatives they claim to be. The R.I.N.O. chairman of the Geauga County Republican Party in Ohio is a good example of that.
People think voting makes a difference. It hasn't at the federal level for quite some time now. The only place it COULD make a difference is at the local level, but ONLY if the voters are truthfully informed and dilligent as to their freedoms and candidates....this is not the case.
People have been manipulated by the government for many decades without knowing it because they are not paying attention. They have transferred their faith in God to faith in politicians....a very big mistake!
The manipulation and brainwashing has been so great and effective that no matter what options or solutions people use, they don't work....because these are the ONLY options presented to them by the system....we listen without thinking....there are more options....we don't know about them or use them, as we have been dumbed down about the natural rights our Creator has endowed us with....that has been replaced with government privileges.
In light of all I have stated, I ask you, has voting made a difference in all these decades? I don't see it. Maybe one of you out there can enlighten me.
Voting alone will not do it. Voting has to be combined with action, intelligence, a truthfully informed electorate, dilligent watchfullness of freedoms.
Somewhere along the line, all these other things that should be combined with voting, have slowly but surely vanished in the general populace, and now, THEY JUST VOTE.
Finally, to answer the question....Is the general voting public stupid? Are you one of them? I don't think anyone will admit to the last one.
I know what my answer is....what is yours?
