Remember this week as one of the great moments in United States political history. A truly great American was revealed in the wake of all the more renowned losers and failures of our dubious past, of both major parties. Due to his courage in resigning his office in the Congress of The United States, Jesse Jackson Jr. will go down in history as one of the most important and relevant figures of our time. In classic Shakespearean “mirror up to nature” fashion, Mr. Jackson revealed the end of the relevance of the individual vote. I must quote the late great Gore Vidal when asked about the importance of voting, he replied: “No it only encourages em”. The Sheeple re-elected Mr. Jackson with 60% of the vote despite the fact that he missed more than 200 votes and was under medical care apparently due to his guilt in a criminal investigation. These allegations were confirmed with his brave resignation this week. No doubt several Republican and Independent voters voted for Mr. Jackson. Does anyone seriously believe that cloning Bernie Sanders would solve all of our problems? Virtually all politicians do as Mr. Jackson did, such as our present president, but only Mr. Jackson had the courage to resign. OK, so we have proven that voting is pointless and in fact detrimental to the nation, so what to do?
Though secession has been filed in all fifty states, too many Americans have been addicted to freebies for such a movement to work. All of the hard working individual Americans have to figure out a way to stop subsidizing those other citizens who have chosen the unlimited entitlement path for their unambitious futures. Perhaps some sort of “Direct Citizen Action” is the best response. We all know of anecdotes of abuse such as individuals in wealthy neighborhoods paying for groceries with food stamps and driving away in a late model Jaguar. It is also common knowledge that food stamp and welfare recipients repeatedly spend their funds on alcohol, drugs, cigarettes and buying lottery tickets. In the future when asked how many children you have or if you occasionally gamble, though the answer on both counts is negative, you should reply by adding two children to the “real” total and admit to occasionally gambling, though you may never have done so. The government will never solve these problems. It makes me laugh to think how easily it will be to pry these entitlements out of the hands of the “freebie junkies”. In reality, we may have already “out-Greeced Greece”.
You should have seen my shocked face when the Sheeple again responded to early press hype that the president-elect showed great leadership in his handling of the hurricane Sandy crisis, yet 13 days later we were still without power in Elmont, New York. I can’t imagine the powerful ambivalent feeling that many of my neighbors no doubt felt when they awoke in the several mornings after Obama’s re-election with a sense of profound satisfaction and pride, but when they opened their eyes had to see their breath in the bone chilling cold that Obama promised to resolve. Government cannot and will not help you. They will help themselves and friends, with your forced help, thank you. It is your responsibility to stop them.
Are you a Sheeple? Do you vote? Then you are contributing to the problem. Go walk to the nearest mirror. Take a long look. Shakespeare will tell you what to do.
