What Tomorrow May Bring
Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 6, 2012, is election day, and the myriad of prognostications being made, as to whether Romney or Obama will be elected president of the United States, is rivaled only by the number of leaves fallen from the trees in this Fall season.
While there are, already, various scenarios imagined as to what will result from an election of Romney, or the re-election of Obama, in reality, not much will really change in the unseemly world of politics, a world of favor and vote buying, outrageous campaign promises, and wholesale pillaging of the American people by their supposed political betters.
The best result the American people can hope for tomorrow, or pray for if they are so inclined, is that the dissatisfaction being expressed at the overreaching role of government in their personal and business lives is not some shortlived, presidential campaign soundbite induced illusion of change in what government’s role actually will be in their lives. Unless the American people clasp, with their hearts and minds, with the same fervor as they would clasp their child to their breasts to protect them from harm, the ideas of limited government, individual liberty, and compulsion free societal interaction, this election, as with many of our past elections, will have been simply a really big show, a Beltway production which had a good run, but changed nothing. The politicians are not going to change a thing in the political arena unless the American people, individually, change themselves first and foremost.
Why are “Patriots/Constitutionalists/III%‘s voting today?
Kool Aid, kool aid, kool aid, so red
As the Patriots who don’t partake of
Jim Jones have said time and again, “electoral
politics will not solve the crisis of our Republic”.
Damn it, that was supposed to be “sweet.”

That really is at the heart of the matter, the individual choice, thought and action, however, there is also what I call “political inertia”. To a certain degree the thing powers itself.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe less than 130,000,000 voted in the last national election. That is less than 1/3 of the population of 312,000,000. Yes, I know about all the people unable to vote for various reasons. But still, 1/3 set the political tone for the full 3/3 of the people. This is not a democracy, the majority do not vote.
You can rationalize your immoral behavior anyway you want but I’ll have none of it.
Voting got all of us into this mess and only a blatant idiot thinks continuing so will undo it.
Change thy name is destruction. The system as pure as we can imagine it is surely broken. At best, most of those in office can be called flakes.
Still that does not mean I wish to see it drawn and quartered before my eyes. The system has been broken for a few decades but still America went on strong as ever. Only now do I feel it is safe to say that that resiliency and ability to overcome has finally met its match.
I hate to think it could be so. Change thy name is destruction. Change will be the destruction of America but can it also be called upon in the future to destroy that destruction itself?Posted by Drama on 11/06 at 09:23 PM
he American people, individually, have changed themselves. they are now socialists and communists.
