At LewRockwell.com, Gary D. Barnett explains the hypocrisy of so-called democratic government and what he believes it means for those who participate. He begins by recalling the words of Hunter S. Thompson, writing:
“The main problem in any democracy is that crowd-pleasers are generally brainless swine who can go out on a stage & whup their supporters into an orgiastic frenzy—then go back to the office & sell every one of the poor bastards down the tube for a nickel apiece.”
~ Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72
I hate politics! Period! Politics is nothing more than the lowest form of human seeking power over others; liars, cheats, attention-getters, murderers, and psychopathic maniacs, who will say anything to get elected, and then act as their immoral normal selves once in power. This is inclusive of ‘almost’ all of them regardless of their rhetoric-spewing. But as always, the masses gather round, and find their choice of slime to support. It matters not what history has shown over eternity; it matters not that the outcome is worse every single election cycle; it matters not that they are lied to over and over again perpetually; it matters not that their freedoms are endlessly destroyed, and their families harmed.
All of these ‘candidates,’ are making speeches, going on major platforms, ‘debating’ each other, announcing their candidacy to crowds of revelers, and it is all a show; a fake show that goes unnoticed by nearly every single group, including those who claim to believe in freedom, while at the same time stumping for a new ruler to be their political boss. Almost none are exempt from this magnificent hypocrisy, except those who refuse to participate in this process for fools called elections, and understand the absolute idiocy of voluntarily choosing rulers to lord over your accepted enslavement.
Politicians are not bound to do anything, regardless of what they say or claim. They are not under any legal obligation whatsoever to keep promises, as has been evidenced throughout this country’s entire history. None of these congressional politicians can even be arrested for not doing as they promised to do; that per the heinous constitution in Article 1, Section 6, Clause 1. This is called a political ‘privilege,’ but in essence, is just a get out of jail free card.
So go out and scream and yell, clap your hands, hold stupid signs, march, sing, worship your political savior of choice, publish articles about the greatness of your pick, vote as many times as you can, and see how much better off you will be after the bell tolls, as your new master, no matter which one is selected, is now your new king.
“Democracy is also a form of worship. It is the worship of jackals by jackasses.”
~ H.L. Mencken
