Huh? Is that English? It sounds like Dutch to me.
“There is no voting our way out of this”-The Free Dictionary
This is a pretty contentious topic on our side of the aisle. I constantly hear people saying, “If you don’t vote, you don’t get to complain” and “If you vote for X, you’re throwing your vote away.”
First off, let me say this. I am not telling you not to vote. Whether the process has been corrupted or not, it’s still important to have your say. What I am saying is, the process HAS been corrupted and there is a good chance your vote didn’t get counted or got canceled out by a fraudulent vote on the other side. My current opinion of voting in the United States is this:
-Federal elections are completely corrupt. You no longer decide who becomes President, the elite do.
-State elections are mostly corrupt. Your vote MIGHT make a difference, depending on your state.
-Local elections have corruption as well, but are generally able to be effected by a vocal minority.
This is why we need to focus completely on local, local, local. Making changes in your own community has the highest return on investment. Stop worrying about trying to “Make America Great Again”. No country in all of recorded human history has ever made themselves great again after their fall began. Face the fact that the United States may not exist for much longer. Even if it does, it will be in name only, much like when the Roman Republic became the Roman Empire. Your family, friends and neighbors are all that matters.
A good example from Oregon that voting doesn’t really matter is the ongoing congressional redistricting. Oregon gained an additional district due to the recent census and the Democratic party is ramming through their redistricting map even though they promised to allow equal input by the Republicans. They reneged on that promise because they have a super-majority. All of you have been voting Republican for the past 40 years and look what it’s got you. You’re outnumbered, period, end of story. No matter how hard you vote, you will never reclaim this state. What makes it even worse is when people on our side get fed up and move to a more conservative state. That just means those of us who stayed are outnumbered even more.
The basic problem is this, people put too much faith in the political process. Our side in particular wants to follow the rules. They exist for everyone’s benefit right? The rules keep the peace right? Sure they do, when both sides still follow them. Let’s look at a basic example of this…
Four people sit down to play a game of Monopoly. At first everything seems to be going fine. Two of the players team up, so the other two do as well. Team 1 versus Team 2. At some point in the game, one one of the Team 1 members, who also happens to be running the bank for the game, decides to start giving himself and his teammate free money from the bank. The players on Team 2 complain but get told “Tough, we’re making the rules now”. Team 2 now has two options. Continue to play a rigged game, or quit.
The sad truth is, that our side has mostly chose to continue playing a game they know is rigged. They don’t want to admit it publicly, because that would mean the game they loved to play for so many years is now meaningless. Their cognitive dissonance won’t allow them to truly believe it.
All you have to do is watch the news on a daily basis. The opposition gets to do whatever they want, with no repercussions. Riots in major cities, election fraud, lies about COVID-19, treasonous behavior in Afghanistan, welcoming invaders across our border. It just goes on and on and on, yet no one has to answer for it.
I have twice taken an oath to the U.S. Constitution. Not because I worship the document, but because I believe in its principles, however imperfect it is. I will never renounce my citizenship. However, it is my stated position that our government has become wholly illegitimate. Our country is now corrupt to its very core. I only care about my family, friends and neighbors. I encourage you to focus on the same things. There is no voting our way out of this.
