The People Who Dictate Your Affairs

Jay says:

Jerry Springer nation is voting your life away one hoof-marked ballot at a time.

Billy adds:

Why on earth would you submit anything remotely having to do with your rights to these peoples’ opinions?

Indeed; why on earth? Whatever for do you see the necessity? Now, I’ll stipulate that I care not a wit how clueless, shallow, and ignorant these morons are, or remain. I couldn’t care less how they manage their peaceful affairs. What’s more, I don’t care that you seem to see the necessity of making these idiots the managers of your own affairs — knock yourselves out. I can’t on earth see why, but it’s an inescapable logic that you indeed want them to run your lives each time you fill out a ballot.

Go ahead and deny it, but your plain actions belie your words. It’s Jerry Springer nation to be sure — a nation of morons — and if you vote you’re enthusiastically going along for the ride.

I will never, ever waste my time with voting again. Even if it were a morally valid way to "run the country" (a phrase I loath for its implications) — which it’s not — you’d still have to contend with the reality that even if you’re a smart and informed person that would generally make the "right call" on matters of "public policy," there is simply no way on earth that you will ever be able to out-compete the moronic masses. (Just look at the evidence over the last two hundred years.)

Consider the often quoted and alluded to idea: "voting empowers the people." Question: why on earth do you want to "empower" fucking idiots? Huh?

I don’t know what’s worse, fucking idiots who believe themselves worthy of a general opinion because they carry the moniker of "voter," or the minority of seemingly smart and informed folks who "empower" them.

    That baseless presumption demonstrates that you don't know what the fuck you're talking about. Dipshit.

    Go to hell.

    Oh my, so by your own admission by taking a "stick-my-head-in-the-sand" approach to voting, you are not only willing but encouraging these "idiots" who vote to dictate the events which invariably control your life. So, which one is the moron again?

    Go fuck yourself.

    This is the state of the popular delusion: one steps into a voting booth to absolutely no effect to change anything, foists guilt on other who, for one, aren't FUCKING STUPID enough to fall for the scam, and second, are HUMAN enough to not want to take moral part in collectively dictating the affairs of others, and they just need to "grow up;" to get mature.

    You'r a miserable fuck and I hope you die soon and hard. I'll laugh. Fuck off.

    Tsk, tsk. You are a petty little boy. Grow up.

    An interesting follow-up video would be the Ron Paul supporters getting more time than a single shout-out. I bet they'd have something
    a bit more substantive to say.
