Now that it’s election time you’ll hear a lot of words that get repeated a lot. “Muslim” “Socialism” “Deficit”. These are called hot topics. Politics use these words to get uneducated voters to get riled up but generally they don’t really know what they mean , or the meaning is misconstrued to mean something bad, when it’s actually not depending on the context. When you think of Democracy what comes to mind? The flag, maybe apple pie, but I doubt it’s anything negative. That’s because since we were 5 we were taught Democracy good, anything else is bad and to associate anything negative with Democracy means you’re a Communist. There are documents about this The Red Scare had people locked up merely because they allegedly thought a different form of government was bad. We’ve all been brainwashed into thinking Democracy is the, best, only way to be governed, and up to a few decades I would completely agree.

Another hot topic politics use is Dictatorship. Even when I associate Democracy with a  color it’s red or white or blue, and when I think of Dictatorship a murky grey or brown comes o mind. A clear case of the School System doing it’s job. But is democracy all that effective? America isn’t exactly the same it was years ago. I do believe the average IQ has dropped significantly, I blame Jersey Shore and American Idol. Any body remember as a kid the teacher would give the class a Ultamatium? Sometimes Choice A was a better longterm decision and Choice B had a quick reward. My second grade teacher asked if we’d rather have a full hour of recess and then no recess the next two days or a 30 minute recess for three days. I being ahead of the curve chose option B, but the rest of my class, looking for a quick fix chose option A. Clearly the majority isn’t always the best choice. Most people are idiots, and the smart people are too smart to vote. That’s how you get Bush in office.. twice, who turned us from on top of the world to on its way to a third world country. This isn’t a slant on Conservatives, but if you think Bush was a good president then wow just wow, but now poor Obama has to pick up the pieces of a still great nation that’s divided 3 different ways.

I think we can all agree Obama hasn’t been the best president and hasn’t been the most effective at fixing the economy and a few other issues. But think about it, he has to deal with The Senate, which is now majority Republican, and the people who aren’t that aware. Now the question I present is, is it Obama that’s ineffective or the system? I do believe the right Republican can fix the economy, I even think Obama could easily fix it. But instead of getting somewhere, they’re pulling a rope in different directions and we’re going nowhere as a country and both pointing fingers, nobody blames Congress who can pretty much Negate anything Obama tries to pass.

In the Great Depression Franklin Roosevelt pretty much became the king of America and rebuilt the country to the ground. He even served more than two terms, and in my mind is the best American president, who worked with Congress to get work done and help the people. Now same shit, basically, except nothing can get passed because the Republican party is focused on getting Obama out of office and Obama is worried about getting back in office. The difference was FDR had little to no resistance. He passed what he wanted, and clearly the results where positive. FDR was pretty much a Benevolent Dictator. Did I just say Dictatorship was good? I’m just getting started.

Now even though in my last article I slammed people who thought the government lies about Everything, fact is the government is extremely manipulative. Politics are just a popularity contest, as opposed to whose the best candidate, or even working together between parties to get shit done. You only really have two choices.  And while they can’t directly tell you what to do but they can influence how you think and how you live. Now I’m going to explain why, purely in an economic sense, that Democracy isn’t always that great. If you look back at the richest, biggest nations almost none of them are Democracies. They’re either Dictatorships or ruled by a King or Queen. Imagine a store where everybody had a say in what would happen. In some cases it could prove helpful, but in a lot more cases it’d ruin the business. You need a boss to come in and put some foot in some ass so that shit goes smoothly. When Hitler came into power, Germany was in the shitter, The dollar wasn’t worth shit, there was no real government, the cities were filled with trash. He was elected and then in two years turned it into a world power. Two years and Elected.. If Hitler had gotten shot during a speech right before he invaded Poland, He’d be a hero, and be held in history as one of the greatest man alive. Ant that’s the worst case scenario for a Dictatorship. THE WORST CASE, a man rebuilds an entire country. I’m not making a point for Dictatorship, Democracy is cool, but we as a country need to open our eyes, and see things for the way they really are there should be an alternative choice at the least.

I have recently witnessed a surplus of idiots who love to think they are intellectual or deep. This is usually because of Youtube or psychedelics. While talking to one of these smart dumb asses, America might come into the conversation. I usually don’t like overly patriotic people who have a “Fuck every other country” mentality, because they’re kind of naive and annoying, but you can tell their heart is in the right place.

What I absolutely hate, are people who don’t watch C-SPAN, don’t listen to debates, and don’t even read the newspaper, but love to tell you how shitty America is and how the Government lies about EVERYTHING. Just to make things clear There’s nothing wrong with loving your country, and there’s nothing wrong with hating your country. Everyone is titled to their opinions, BUT there is a such thing as an educated opinion. If you got injured on the job, and Medicaid won’t help you, The Court can’t help you out, and you can’t get disabilities, i more than understand if you are less than pleased with the way things are going. But if you just sit at home all day , smoking weed and watching anti-illumunati videos, you have no idea what you’re talking about. You don’t work, you don’t really help society other than the 3 cents of tax money out of the dollar you spend on your Arizona. Like I said, Educated. Really, yes America is not what it used to be , economically of course I haven’t been here long enough to really know what ” the good old days” were like, but even in our recession things are much better here than say .. Russia or Africa. I would love to drop these dumbasses off there and tell them they’re free from the oppression of the United States Government.

Ask one of these idiots if they vote. Nah man I don’t vote bro it doesn’t make a difference it’s all corrupt man a YouTube video told me so. Wow so you have the power to pretty much influence the government and get your voice heard, but you refuse because it doesn’t matter. If you vote you can bitch about the government all you want. If you don’t vote Shut the Fuck up it’s your fault you had the power and blew it. Basically If you don’t like the country get the fuck out. We’re really better off without you. And since the government is evil, don’t apply for healthcare, student loans, none of that shit it’s dirty money you’re smart enough to where you don’t need the help..
