The Voting Booth – A Suggestion Box for Slaves

“If you don’t vote, you can’t complain” is one of the most ridiculous, illogical statements I’ve ever heard. The only people who rightfully can complain are those who choose not to be a part of the political process.

Many people who have decided not to vote have awakened to the realization that the people they “elect” will be expected to initiate force against their friends, family and neighbors–a criminal activity–and those non-voters have chosen not to be an accessory to crime.

To those who claim to be a part of the “freedom movement,” please understand that you shouldn’t have to band with others to petition ‘Master’ (government) for your freedom. The system’s very nature is to control; that’s what government does. So, to ask people who gravitate to positions of power and control to please not exercise power and control over you is a waste of time–actually, it’s dangerous and counterproductive.

When you cast a vote, regardless of your intentions, you are helping to perpetuate and legitimize the system. By doing so, you are giving other people–typically an unenlightened majority–the opportunity to vote for things with which you disagree. Also, the votes cast may not even be the true results, but as long as masses of people show up to the polls the outcomes can be manipulated fairly easily.

And what has voting gotten you, anyway? Do you have more freedom than you parents enjoyed? How about less taxation? A stronger economy? More opportunities for enterprise and prosperity? More privacy? Less government intrusion into your life?

Every election cycle, we hear the people cry to “Vote the rascals out!” What has that done for the country? It’s given us increased taxation, a destroyed economy, a worthless currency, more surveillance cameras, militarized police, Homeland Security, email and Internet monitoring, cellphone tracking, more required licenses and permits (permission from a pay-off), molestation of our kids and spouses at airports, more checkpoints, more wars, more invasions, more murder, more destruction, more angry world neighbors…and on and on.

Because you voted, this is what you have received–regardless of what you wanted. YOU are the only one who cannot complain, because you enabled it by participating!

Voting doesn’t ensure success, anyway, regardless of the vote total.

I’ve sat through meetings and watched government officials hear 95% of people in a room say “No!” only to watch the officials vote “yes.” They know you’ll just complain to your friends, write an angry letter to the newspaper editor (which probably won’t get printed, anyway), and post an angry status update on Facebook–and then you’ll get over it and forget, because your kid’s soccer game, or going clubbing, is more important than the risk involved with running these officials out of town. As a politician once stated, “You can complain all you want, as long as you pay your taxes.”

The only way to truly bring about change is to STOP VOTING and participating in the system. Operate outside of it, as much as possible. End all support for it. When support is gone, there will be no system left to manipulate.

And Libertarians should take note: Government is borne of an entitlement mentality. Even if you want a “small,” “limited,” or “Constitutional” government (something that has never been and never will be), you are saying that you feel entitled to some government function and you feel that others should be forced to pay for it (taxation). Sorry, but that’s a socialist mindset–certainly not freedom–and it makes you no better than the other socialists (Rs & Ds) who are destroying the country. You all want to steal and spend the wealth of others; you just differ on how much to take, from whom to take it and where it should be spent.

Break free from the Matrix. Think outside the box. Overcome your conditioning. Be what you want to see in others. And, please, stop helping to perpetuate a slavery system!

It’s hard to look at this list and realize that people view this stuff–slave driving (law enforcement)–as entertainment.

For those who say this isn’t slavery, can you speak freely without consequences from the State, work any kind of job you desire, travel unimpeded, start a business, freely exchange goods and services, eat what you want, smoke what you want, marry whomever you choose, build without a permit or license (permission), and not be forced to give your wealth to other people, etc.? No, you can’t, and just because you don’t have physical chains on your legs doesn’t mean you aren’t a slave to the will (“law”) of others.

The worst part about all these cop and emergency shows is that they are being used 1) to psychologically condition you to obey your law enforcement masters, and show you the consequences that may result if you don’t; 2) hopefully make you think that these people are just regular good guys, like you, who are just doing their jobs (jobs that they voluntarily signed on for, I might add, so them trying to hide behind that excuse is ridiculous); 3) condition you to understand and accept that law enforcement will be in every area of your life, from womb to grave, and you should accept it as normal; and 4) as a recruiting tool for authoritarians.

Even National Geographic and Syfy have introduced cop shows into their channel lineups. Is nothing sacred, anymore?

I want to be clear that I do not support any kind of activity that harms another person. But in this case, all types of “criminal” activities are being used in TV programming to condition you to a Police State. Don’t fall for it, and see these shows for what they really are–and turn them off!

Government is like a Casino

In a casino, the odds are stacked against gamblers; the House is going to come out on top, at the end of the day, overall. There are some winners, here and there, but there are many more losers so the casino makes the most money.

Informants are hired to look and act like regular gamblers, in an effort to keep tabs on the regular folks who are gambling. If someone regularly beats the House, and amasses a considerable amount of wealth, the casino is alerted and the goon squad is dispatched to find out why–and possibly (forcibly) eject the person from the premises. Their business model is based on the idea that the House is the only one that should be making any serious money.

It’s the same with government and politics. With electronic voting machines, scare tactics, back-pocket media and an ignorant Electorate the odds are stacked against The People.

Any time a “third” option or activist group mounts a serious challenge to the Establishment Parties (RepubliCrats), the attack-dog media outlets go to work to discredit the candidate and cast doubt in the minds of voters: “It’s a wasted vote,” “People who associate with that group must be hate-filled or racist,” or “If you don’t vote for our candidate the [other “major” Party candidate] will win!” It’s all about dividing, conquering and advancing agendas through compromise and fear–and making sure no alternative can gain any type of ground to upset the balance.

And don’t get me started on the widespread ballot access laws, reporting mandates, contribution caps, etc. that seriously hinder any “third party” upstarts, but don’t really do much to hinder the “major” Parties who are already large and powerful. To me, it’s akin to the lopsided tax on the Southern states that led to the Civil War.

Infiltrating one of the other Parties– to try and win an election, based solely on the fact that some (idiots) blindly push an “R” or “D” button at the polls, without even knowing who the candidates are–will get you nowhere, either, because those Parties carefully vet their members and candidates. If you don’t play along with the Good Ol’ Boy game, you will never even make it through the nomination process. (Ron Paul is a good example of how these groups will cannibalize their own, if their agendas are threatened.)

By now, you’ve probably heard reports and seen evidence of vote tampering on electronic voting machines–everything from vote totals being switched, artificially casting votes for one candidate based upon the votes received by the opposition, etc. There is even video footage of a chimp hacking one of the machines. To put it all in perspective, Russian dictator Josef Stalin once said, “It’s not the people who vote that count. It’s the people who count the votes.”

With all of those things stacked against you–those who want real change and real freedom–why do you continue to try and work within the system to try and change it?

I guess it’s like playing the lottery, even though a player is more likely to be struck by lightning–twice–than win the jackpot.

And the local government council meetings, where “public input” is permitted–but usually at no more than 2 or 3 minutes per person–are just dog and pony shows, too. Listening to the citizens is just a formality to most of these people, and necessary to keep you thinking that you actually have a voice in government proceedings, so you don’t rebel.

I’ve seen too many meetings where citizens packed the house, and overwhelmingly disapproved of a certain measure that was up for a vote, only to watch their local officials completely ignore the voices of the People and approve it, anyway. It was almost comical to watch these officials pay little attention to what the People had to say, knowing how they were going to vote before the first person even stepped up to the mic.

Threats to vote them out don’t work, because they know that most people don’t even know what’s going on with their government and will vote to re-elect them–and if that fails, there’s always those wonderful, programmable, electronic voting machines…

Stop putting your faith and energy into a system that is rigged to keep outsiders from succeeding. Don’t be fooled by the illusion.

It’s time to remove all compliance and support for this corrupt, freedom-destroying Establishment. Doing so is the only way we’re ever going to get things moving back in the right direction.

That’s some real “hope and change.”

Freedom and the Constitution

I frequently hear people use “freedom” and “Constitution” in the same sentence, as if freedom is dependent upon the document. I hate to burst a few bubbles out there, but it just isn’t true.

Now, before anyone jumps to conclusions and gets their panties in a wad I want you all to take a deep breath, calm down, open your minds and try to think outside of your conditioning.

Here are a couple of things to keep in the back of your mind as you read further.

Webster’s Dictionary online says that “slavery” is “submission to a dominating influence.” It also says that definition of “free” is “not subject to the control or domination of another.”

So, to recap, if you are forced to submit to a dominating influence you are a slave.

By its very nature, government is a “dominating influence” to which you must submit or suffer loss.

Citizens are forced to get permission for everything under the Sun, including but not limited to building a house, getting married, starting a business, driving a car, selling certain types of merchandise, etc. In addition, your wealth is forcibly taken from you through taxation and fines.

“How does the Constitution fit into all this,” you ask? The Constitution is the foundation of the United States’ system of government which basically enables these types of things, either directly or indirectly.

Examples include:

“Legislative power” (control): Article 1, Section 1

“Taxes” (theft): Article 1, Sections 2, 7, 8, 9 & 10

“Regulate Commerce” (interfere in the marketplace): Article 1, Section 8

“Bankruptcy” (using government power to get out of repaying all or part of a person’s debt): Article 1, Section 8

Manipulate the value of currency: Article 1, Section 8

Hold you against your will when they determine emergency conditions exist in the country: Article 1, Section 9

Inspecting your imported or exported goods, and taxing you to fund it all: Article I, Section 10

“Executive Power” (control): Article 2, Section 1

President’s salary (funded through theft): Article 2, Section 1

Presidential Oath (he must swear to uphold this document and all of its slavery-enabling clauses!): Article 2, Section 1

President’s job to make sure all laws are “faithfully executed” (control): Article 2, Section 2

“Judicial Power” (control): Article 3, Section 1

Drag you into court and deliver punishment for crimes: Article 4, Section 2 (and some examples of “crime” around the US include walking down the street with an ice cream cone in your pocket (KY), putting a couch in your garage (FL), or conducting a puppet show from your balcony (NY).)

Guarantee a Republican form of government (promise of the manner in which they will rule you): Article 3, Section 4

Constitution will be the “supreme Law of the Land” (control): Article 6

Soldiers can be quartered in your home if “prescribed by law”: Amendment 3

Government can break in and search your belongings if it feels the need: Amendment 4

Government can kidnap you and force you to stand trial: Amendment 5

Government can take your property for a public use, if they give you what they feel is “just compensation”: Amendment 5

If government kidnaps you and forces you to stand trial, they will make every effort to give you a speedy trial and allow to bring witnesses to testify on your behalf: Amendment 6

No slavery or involuntary servitude, unless you violate one of their laws: Amendment 13

Government can deprive you of “life, liberty or property” with due process of law: Amendment 14, Section 1

“Public debt” (they spend, you pay): Amendment 14, Section 4

Stealing your money (income tax): Amendment 16

Prohibited alcoholic beverages: Amendment 18 (eventually repealed)

And let’s not forget that owning slaves was recognized and permitted under this Constitution.

As I was saying, “Freedom” and “Constitution” should never be used together, because they are incompatible–and (police) actions always speak louder than words (on paper).

Adulthood and the Law

I have a serious problem with the so-called US Justice System’s handling of adults and juveniles.

According to libraryindex.com, “By the year 2000 all 50 states and the District of Columbia had one or more laws permitting the transfer of youths to criminal courts to be tried as adults. Many states have also expanded these laws in order to make it easier to prosecute juveniles as adults. For example, a 1995 Missouri law removed the minimum age limit, which had been 14, for trying children as adults in cases involving drug dealing, murder, rape, robbery, and first-degree assault. The law also permits children 12 years old to be prosecuted as adults for other crimes. A Texas law allows children as young as 10 to be sentenced to up to 40 years’ incarceration.”

A 12-year-old child can be tried as an adult, and sentenced to years of imprisonment for committing certain crimes, but NOT ONE SINGLE PERSON in the “Land of the Free” United States under 21 years of age is enough of an adult to consume an alcoholic beverage, according to government. (The age limit of 21 is the highest of any country in the world, by the way, and the US has the highest prison population of any country on earth.)

A person can join the Army, and put his life on the line in war, at 17–and operate heavy artillery, assault weapons and vehicles–but is prohibited from going into a bar and having a cold beer at the end of the day.

The double standard is completely illogical and unacceptable. It is used by prosecutors to increase their number of “successfully prosecuted cases,” so they are perceived to be “tough on crime,” and used to increase the overall power of the State.

I don’t care for alcoholic beverages, or court systems, but to make a small improvement in all of this I propose a new, logical standard for determining whether or not someone is an “adult”: If the person in question is not adult enough to enjoy a few shots from a bottle of whiskey, they cannot be tried as an adult in court.

This ridiculous court practice has got to end.
