Voting for President – 8 Reasons Why Your Vote Doesn’t Matter

Soon the U.S. will elect a new president. November’s fast approaching and approximately everyone in the universe is encouraging you to register, let your voice be heard and rock the vote. Everyone except for me. No, I’m here to pour some much needed sanity water on this out of control pro-voting fire. Why? Because your vote doesn’t matter. I know they’re telling you that it’s your responsibility, that you have a civic duty to vote in national elections, but voting is a right. It’s, by definition, something you can do if you want, but you have just as much right not to. Now, some people will tell you that soldiers died in the forming of this country and many since protecting that right to vote, that is another story for another time, but if their sacrifice means that I have to do everything that I’m allowed to do by law, then I think I also have a civic duty to worship a deity and buy a gun and protest peacefully. Those rights were died for as well, correct? Oh, and by the way, voting isn’t even a right in the Constitution. It doesn’t have its own amendment or anything like that, just FYI. It’s mentioned as something that can’t be restricted by race or gender in some of the post-Civil War amendments, but it’s not explicitly stated as its own right, no matter who died in the founding of this country. Reason number one your vote doesn’t matter: electoral college. The electoral college is part of the U.S. government’s longstanding traditional of over complicating staggeringly simple processes. The electoral college is to voting as social security is to taking care of old people. The electoral college is to voting as the TSA is to a rapid and smooth air travel experience. The electoral college weighs each state’s importance in the elections based on population. The result is that California, Michigan, Ohio, and Florida get 90% of the candidates’ attention, while Nebraska and their five electoral votes get told to [censored] off. Don’t worry. Nebraska’s used to it. When you vote for president, you’re actually voting to elect a delegate who then goes on your behalf to the electoral college, where he isn’t even required by law to cast his vote for the candidate he said he would. A popular vote would at least be more representative. Your one vote counts for one vote; the candidate with the most votes... read more

The Way To Save America Is To Wake Yourself Up – Then Wake Up Others

The Way To Save America Is To Wake Yourself Up – Then Wake Up Others If you want to know the destiny of a business, or an institution, or a society, you only need to look at one thing… The values held by the leaders of those organizations. Freedom, liberty, honor, and the rule of law… These were the kinds of values that America was founded upon 300 hundred years ago. And yet in the past 20 years, We’ve watched those values disappear with our very own eyes. When we think of America today, and look at the leadership found in Washington, words like deception, corruption, greed, treason, and secrecy come to mind. Am I wrong? Today our leaders do not do the right things for the right reasons, they do what’s right for them, and when those are the types of values demonstrated by a societies leaders, that society is doomed. And so we have a choice… We can sellout and follow their lead and drive America into a leaderless, valueless, nation of corruption where it’s every man and woman for themselves, or we can turn back toward the principles that directed this country to greatness. Humanity is standing at the threshold of a monumental transformation, a shift of epic precedent. At the very least, you probably sensed this on some level. But if you’d been paying attention, you can already see the changes beginning to unfold and it’s accelerating at an amazing rate. More and more people are opening their eyes and reaching for the courage to stand up. It’s still a struggle like a child making its first steps and in these early stages as the wool is pulled from our eyes, what we see can be terrifying. People all around the world are beginning to open their eyes and make their first steps towards freedom by awakening their courage to stand up and speak. With great hardship and struggle we start to see our world as it is, though the sight may be terrifying, and we start to make our first steps towards a better world. You are not a slave. You do not have to feel powerless and insignificant compared to those who claim to be your earthly masters. You are more than a servant, born to kneel and bow when a great man approaches, forever doomed to a life of debt and the chains of serving the needs of others. You have your... read more

We’re There Any Wars Truly Fought Over Freedom?

Can you name one war, besides the Revolutionary War, that was fought over freedom? No idea is more fundamental to Americans’ sense of ourselves as individuals and as a nation than freedom. The term in our political vocabulary, freedom—or liberty, with which it is almost always used interchangeably—is deeply embedded in the record of our history and the language of everyday life. The Declaration of Independence lists liberty among mankind’s inalienable rights; the Constitution announces securing liberty’s blessings as its purpose. Freedom has often been invoked to mobilize support for war: the United States fought the Civil War to bring about “a new birth of freedom,” World War II for the “Four Freedoms,” the Cold War to defend the “Free World.” The recently concluded war in Iraq was given the title “Operation Iraqi Freedom.” Americans’ love of freedom. Obviously, other peoples also cherish freedom, but the idea seems to occupy a more prominent place in the United States than in many other countries. Despite, or perhaps because of, freedom has never been a fixed category or concept. Rather, it has been the subject of persistent conflict in American history. The history of American freedom is a tale of debates, disagreements, and struggles rather than a set of timeless categories or an evolutionary narrative toward a preordained goal. And the meaning of freedom has been constructed at all levels of society—not only in congressional debates and political treatises, but on plantations and picket lines, in parlors and even in bedrooms. Founded on the premise that liberty is an entitlement of all mankind, the United States, from the outset, blatantly deprived many of its own people of freedom. Do you feel free? So this brings us back to our initial question. Can you name one war that was fought over freedom? Well… can you? You need to understand that it is no such thing as a war being fought for “freedom” That is just a phrase that government gives to unite the country under the cloak of patriotism. Wars have always been fought over territory, trade or power . Back in the olden days, and there is a resurgence of it lately, wars were fought over religion. The war in Iraq , for example, is being fought for access to the middle eastern oil supply. It’s working rather well, I might add. We now have bases in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Iraq, and if we hadn’t got bogged down in Iraq,... read more
