If You Vote, You Have No Right To Complain

Yes, you read it correctly: if you vote you have no right to complain. I know that the old statist saw is that you haven't the right to complain (or have an anti-statist opinion, etc.) unless you take part in the election farce, but it's time to put that one to rest permanently. And with Barry Obomber and Insane McCain competing to claim the mantle of Harbinger of Change, only the most thoroughly brainwashed idiots have a right to pretend to believe in dumbocracy and its various specious claims.

If there's one thing we know for sure, it's that neither wing of the ruling DemRep Party is for changing anything but faces. Voting only endorses four more years of the same violation of the U.S. Constitution, theft of property and earnings, meddling in the private lives of citizens, police statism at the airports and the borders of the imperial State, and war, war, war.

The recent "Republican" party convention and the attendant fascist raids on St Paul citizens' homes and theft of property from all suspected of opposing the McCain circus is a good lesson in dumbocracy. Even legitimate delegates to the farcical convention were robbed of copies of Ron Paul's books. leaflets, lapel pins and other things feared by the thugs who run the Ghoulish Old Party.

The "Democratic" side of the counterfeit statist coin is just as evil; Barry Obomber has led the charge to slaughter even more Afghans and Pakistanis—although, like all good statist warmongers, he "leads from the rear". A tour of Kandahar is out of the question for as long as there are live Afghans there. And don't even question the intention of this wing of the vulture party to keep raising taxes—they're actually proud of it!

The Reagan/Bush Sr/Clinton/Baby Bush/ [place any statist stooge's name here: ________] Dynasty will never be ended by playing the elections shell game. The same oligarchs who pull the strings on the political puppets also own the MainSewerMedia and control the government schools. If you think this will lead to any kind of honest debate of real issues or even fair coverage of the candidacy of the occasional maverick like Ron Paul, then you have not been paying attention lately.

Besides, in our glorious western dumbocracies, every illiterate who is capable of swilling beer and marking an "X" has the same ballot "power" as you do. With the average I.Q. being a mere 100, and with the average man not making much use of what little potential intelligence he has, any demagogue can manipulate the broad masses, comrade.

Now those few American people capable of analytical thinking have to decide whether they want to continue choosing Statist A or Statist B, or if they wish to oppose the increasingly fascistic imperial socialist state which brutalises the world with their sons and their confiscated wealth. At least the Ron Paul Revolution showed them that there is an alternative to statism.

I hope that the American people finally learn the election lesson. I hope that a serious opposition movement grows up in the USA. I hope that it exposes and opposes every move made by the State at all levels. I hope that the American people boycott the phony elections, home school their children, and read the books and websites that the MSM don't want them to even know exist. I hope that a new generation of MeetUp groups arises; one for the purpose of promoting and participating in a new American Revolution—a revolution unlike any the world has seen before.

It's possible. If the Ron Pauistas and others don't become discouraged and/or intimidated, they could plant the seed of that Revolution. It starts with learning the lessons of the Ron Paul candidacy. It could end with an era of...

Peace and Liberty.

He is a writer and itinerant pedagogue from Edmonton, Canada whose professed ambition is " trample everyone's sensitivities, regardless of their race, creed, colour, political persuasion, or what-have-you."
