American sport is politics. Even when the maddening crowd says they hate
it, they can’t get enough. Reality TV seems pale in comparison, full contact
football looks tame in contrast and GPS bombs test safe, as the duds and
blanks of representative democracy unfold for all to see. The ravage caused
from the process not only spreads collateral damage, it inflicts terminal
carnage. The notion that a two party system produces opposing options stretches
the limits of hallucination. Nevertheless, people cling to the illusion of
choice when the reality is unanimity.
In the midst of the racket is the fallacy that either party stands for anything.
But at the core of the scheme is the fact that the anything is reducible
to the same thing. The anything is what works for the moment. The craving
to gain and retain power is what bonds the political class. The ins and the
outs are merely determined by whose turn it is now! The loyalty that is displayed
is to close ranks, when the organized crime syndicate is under attack. The
system invariably rescues the faithful, the game is always protected and
the courts predictably give relief and atonement to the most prominent crooks.
Only the outsider is driven off the reservation, while the taxpayers are
kept on the plantation. By now, you should know it is all so sadly true.
That’s why nothing meaningful ever changes. The myth that policies alter
with different administrations or shift with a turn in majorities is pure
fiction. So what, if anything, can be done to transform this shell game?
Public outrage is seldom sustainable, and surely rare even when the most
scandalous abuses tap the morbid submission of the sheeple. What is the alternative?
Most habitual readers know that the "Strappado Wrack" touches the torture
cord of the absurd. The inane process of elections is pivotal to maintain
the artifice of a “so called” democracy. Allowing citizens to delude themselves
into thinking that real choices exist, when casting a ballot, is plainly
a device to deceive. The queasy sedative has an alluring beauty for the unworldly
boobs who feel good after they register their vote. The scheme works, because
most people are unwilling to face reality, and believe in the illusion of
benevolent leaders or are simply too stupid to understand the adverse political
results that inevitably follow every election.
The nature of this macrocosm problem is the existence of a political class
and their control of the process. They view themselves to be an aristocracy
- a privileged elite - when in actuality they are bloodsuckers. No reform
of a broken system will correct this phony sleight of hand. So why not adopt
a clear, uncomplicated and incorruptible selection option for office holders
that displaces the entrenched political class?
The civic duty of citizens obligates involvement and maintaining accountability
for their governmental structure. Constitutions are written to protect natural
rights and to confine the State to limited functions. Office holders have
the responsibility to preserve the preeminence of the individual, and the
subservient role of bureaucracies. Laws reflect acceptable moral conduct
within society, not compliance to administrative dictates. Change is inherent
and people retain their purpose to seek Liberty and their pursuit of happiness.
In order to advance these objectives and to fill recognized public positions
of civic administration, a rotating selection, based upon accepted community
standards from qualified property owners and constitutionally educated citizens,
would be chosen by lottery. Defined and limited terms in office, with no
pay, pension or benefits would be the condition for serving the public.
Social democracy has proven to be an utter failure. A replacement for sham
elections with a system of random selection could hardly do worse, than the
present orchestrated fraud of permanent political clones. There is nothing
sacred about voting when identical twins are the only choices.
If the DemocRATS sound sensible when they are in the minority, just give
them majority power and see how quickly their tune changes. When RepubliCANTS
fail to dismantle the welfare society, when they hold the plurality, just
wait when they become the minority to sound the reform theme. The hoax doesn’t
change, only the respective roles that the ‘ins’ or ‘outs’ play and who is
using the reformer talking points. All that ever happens is a switch in rhetoric,
while the direction of STATE tyranny progresses to the next level. Each cycle
of elections never offers a plebiscite that brings sound government. You
are never allowed to register - none of the above . . . but are compelled
into choosing the lessor of two evils.
Do you really want to end this fracas or are you too lazy to enter the citizen
lottery corp? Winning a spot in a taxpayer administration that offers the
ability to reduce, restructure and reshape your local destiny too much for
you to handle? Are you just content to leave the heavy lifting to the other
guy, or worse yet, the professional politician?
The devil is usually in the details, but the principle of replacing a confidence
game run by an oligarchy alliance, offers the only real chance to free ourselves
from the boot of despotism. Do you have more faith in the decisions of your
neighbor than those made by the Potomac charlatan class? If expertise was
essential to rule, why is it necessary to ban common sense! If government
justifies revenue enhancement through a lottery, why not allow nourishing
the public sector through providential assortment? Do you feel lucky or are
you just resigned with shooting 'snake eyes' at the crap table? Give us all
a chance; abolish, shun and neutralize both political parties.
