The Pessimist

I’m tired of people making excuses for their behavior.

It’s not out of our control… I’m fat because I eat more than I need to.  I’m sober because I don’t drink enough.  I’m not as cool as “occupy” protesters because I bathe.  My representative is an idiot but I vote for him every time because I refuse to pay attention to what he actually does versus what he says he does.

I’m in control… and what I decide to do matters.

See how easy that is?

It’s time to simply be honest first with ourselves, then with others. This brings me to a brief conversation I had with a friend.
We, of course, were talking about politics.  His position was that it didn’t matter who we voted for because they are all corrupt, or will be, and that’s just the way it is. I have heard this referred to as being cynical… which has always bothered me at some level. It was then that I realized why.

The above attitude is Pessimistic, not Cynical.

I’m cynical and happily so. I revel in my cynicism.  I subscribe to all definitions of the word. I am not, however, pessimistic.

The Pessimist uses his title to know nothing. The Pessimist seeks to appear informed while making no effort to be informed. It is an attempt to position himself above the conversation while not actually having to participate in it.  It is also this belief that allows the grifters in government to get away with exactly the behavior the Pessimist thinks is unavoidable.

My friend then followed up that statement with the fact that he see’s voting as his “duty”.  I almost fell out of my chair.  I should not have been surprised.

This is what we are teaching our entire population. The Left loves this because it gives people a pass to vote for the “coolest” candidate rather than calmly exploring what they stand for. The Left certainly does not want educated voters… they get to continue their march to Statism as long as enough voters look at it as if it is a game show.

This is a frustrating situation as these are exactly the people we need to reach out to and educate. While I would prefer that they embrace limited government, if all I can get is an educated Socialist then fine. At the very least, be the best Statist you can be. But if you’re ignorant regarding the different philosophies and you can find a shred of intellectual honesty then be true to yourself and admit you are not prepared to vote.

In fact, please don’t vote.

Instead make an effort to get educated and join the conversation. Then and only then should you consider it your “duty” to vote. There is nothing “cool” about screwing up life for the rest of us because you want to “rock the vote” or because the person you want to have sex with thinks they have an “enlightened” opinion so you vote the way they do. It’s also not your “duty” to vote the way your parents do.

Spare us the electoral static that you bring to the table with your inane actions!

Try being a Cynic and educating yourself.

I have faith you will for your own good.

But I suspect you wont.

Everything We told you Would Happen with Obama Care…

…is Happening.

We told you They were Lying about you getting to Keep Your Insurance Plan while you still had a chance…

You Lost It. And if you haven’t yet, you will.

We told you They were Lying about you getting to Keep Your Doctor while you still had a chance…

You Lost Them Too. And if you haven’t yet, you will.

We told you They Were Lying about all of it getting Cheaper while you still had a chance…

It Hasn’t. And It Won’t, Ever.

We’re Telling you All of This wasn’t about Healthcare while you still have a chance…

Because It’s Not.  It’s about Control.  It’s about a Progressive Socialist Dream.  It’s about destroying the Free Market System that was the Foundation of the Finest Health Care in the World.

And You’re Finding out.

Isn’t it time you starting thinking about who you really believe?

Or are you so Addicted to People Who tell you the World is Going to End every 10 years because you Drive an SUV that you just can’t find your Way to the Truth?  (It could be that you’re so absent critical thinking that you believe Corporations are Bad but Government is Good… as opposed to knowing that Both are Bad with Government being Worse because it can apply Force to make you do what they want.  You are taught to forget that Government is made up of the same people Corporations are… just as fallible and just as capable of evil.  You are taught to be cynical only of Business… and never of Government.  As every Mass Evil Committed on Earth has demonstrated, Only those humans in Government have the power of Force without you having any recourse..  To keep this simple and stated in an easy way to understand, You can always Sue Google but not the DMV.  Do you really want the DMV in charge of Your Health?  Because that’s where your vote has taken us.)

The “Fix” to Obama Care is returning to the System as it was just a few short months ago…

When you Had all the Things Above… Before The Liars in Government Took Them All Away and Told You how it’s All Working Perfectly.

So America, what will it take?

What will it take for you to reconsider your politics?

It’s time to Take Responsibility for your Vote.

If you voted for this, then it’s your fault.

Accept it like an adult, and change your behavior.

Your Options are limited:

Keep voting for it, then be Honest and make sure your friends who are losing everything they had; Their Plan, Their Doctor, Their Hospital and Their Money, know you’re doing it to them

Change the way you vote and help get us back to where we can address the very Few short-comings our system had before this debacle…

Or, just don’t vote and let the rest of us do the heavy lifting…

Please.


Don’t Vote Against Barack!

Do Not Vote For Mitt…

And… Do Not Throw Your Vote Away on Gary!

Please take a moment to think this through…

It’s not enough to vote the “right” way, unless it’s for the “right” reason.

It is not Obama, the man, that we are Fighting Against. It should not be Romney, the man, that we are Fighting For… And, while I like Gary Johnson, I don’t need anyones permission… or approval… to get stoned if I choose too.

The 2012 Election is all about the War between Capitalism and Socialism (plus all its variants) with the future of the United States hanging in the balance. The Ideologies are mutually exclusive.  The choice is Clear.  It is as simple as that.

The election is not about Abortion, Special Rights for Minorities or Big Bird. While these are issues we should be discussing… like, why should one person have more rights than I do… no matter happens with these “Paramount Problems” it will not result in the complete and total collapse of the Greatest Nation on Earth.

You Are Being Distracted.

It is Intentional.

The Socialists cannot argue ideology because they know you’ll start gathering wood for the ensuing stake burning.

The Capitalists will not argue ideology because, most of them have no idea what it means. And those that do, know that you have been subjected to 60 years of programming, confusion and outright misinformation provided by our government schools… so you don’t know what it means either.  Those “in the know” could come out of the closet and preach the gospel of Voluntary Cooperation… but you would look at them like they have three heads and were speaking in tongues.

Instead…

You are being asked to reduce this election to a beauty contest between two Men who cannot tell you the truth.

The Truth is you have a choice between a genuinely Crappy Socialist (who like’s beer…) and a Squishy, Vacillating, Poorly Grounded Consitutional Conservative (who does not like beer… not a plus.)

On behalf of Mr. Squishy and Vacillating, I would offer that Constitutional Conservatives have yet to destroy any economies… oppress individuals… subjugate peoples… enslave populations… systematically starve their enemies… etc.

The Socialists have, and continue to, perform all the above tasks with alarming skill.  With only the best of intentions, and preaching “Fairness” while doing it.

This election comes down to a simple question that has nothing to do with the likability of the individuals running. Instead, it has everything to do with the Ideology they support.

So, I ask you… Do we put the final nail in the coffin of Free-Market Capitalism and Individual Liberty that this country has the opportunity to return to by Voting for Force, the ideology embodied by Barack Obama?

Or…

Do we elect the only option we have that may slow the decent and, hopefully with our relentless engagement, begin to undo 100 years of Fabian Socialist policies?

We have seen clearly the illustration of that old adage “Once you go Socialist you never go back.” And contrary to the 1%, like the Kennedy’s/Kerry’s/Reid’s/Pelosi’s, we are not better off for it.

Please make an effort to understand the stark differences between the ideologies.  Then, and only then, go vote.  After that… stay engaged and don’t let these people get away with turning this great country into Greece.  I don’t think it’s too much to ask.

Have you ever had Retsina?  Not good.
