Voting is Not the Problem… Americans Are the Problem

People vote for too many things.


Mostly they vote to take things from other people – either their
property or their freedom of action. Each election in modern America is
for all practical purposes a no-reserve auction of other people’s stuff.
Vote for me, says The Candidate – and I will give you some of their stuff. Or something even worse: Vote for me and I will force them to do This or That.


It is never phrased quite so honestly, but this is the essential
character of what goes on. Everything is up for bid. There is no
off-limits. No “not for sale at any price.”


Apparently, the idea doesn’t appeal to most Americans anymore. Most Americans view their fellow man with proprietary interest.


And they, he.


But the vote is just a mechanism. A tool. It is neither good nor bad in itself. It is people who are bad. Envious, malicious, vengeful, controlling people. Or simply ignorant people. Give them the franchise and nature will take its course.


Envious, malicious people vote for wealth transfers to themselves – theft by process, rendered lawful. You have more and I have less. Give me more.

Voters with the itch to control their fellow man – but lacking the
courage to do so directly – get proxies to do it for them, via the
ballot box. It makes them feel good without requiring them to confront
the nature of the thing – and of themselves. People who would never in a
million years march over to their neighbor’s house and knock a
cigarette from his lips will self-satisfiedly vote to have someone else
do it for them – never stopping to consider that they have just given
license for their neighbor to exact revenge using precisely the same
method.


The simply ignorant, in their naivety, vote for laws that seem to
them humane and “liberal”- never following the sequence of events down
the line, to the unfriendly end of the gun that will impose their
“humane” and “liberal” policies. Or, if they are “conservatives,” for
laws they may genuinely believe will “keep us safe.” Likewise never
following the thought-chain to its necessary conclusion. Never realizing
what they’ve just endorsed and how it will inevitably be used in ways they may not like very much at all.


But the franchise is itself morally neutral. Like a gun. A gun can save a life – or take one. The gun itself is neither good nor bad. It is the hand that wields it – and the mind that controls it.


And it is the minds of millions of Americans that’s at the root of
our predicament. Minds that have been molded (twisted) by great
historical forces, embodied by a few very specific persons:


Abe Lincoln taught Americans to fear the government. He laid
waste to the South as an object lesson: Washington’s authority is
unassailable – and eternal. The union, at bayonet-point, forever. Like a
bad marriage from which there can be no escape save death.


Prior to the war, most Americans still held to the curious notion that government existed by their leave. It was their mere representative, charged with a few specific tasks and no more. When this representativeexceeded
its mandate, it became immediately illegitimate – a tyranny. The
Southern states took this literally, attempting to withdraw on the
principle that legitimate government exists by consent only – and what
was being done to them by the rapidly growing Leviathan in DC was being
done manifestly withouttheir consent and very much against their will. Hence, they exercised their right as sovereign states to withhold consent – and to sever the relationship. To depart.


Abe educated them.


The principle of unlimited federal supremacy was established at Appomatox. The formerly sovereignstates (plural) became little more than fiefdoms ultimately owned – because utterly controlled
by the “monarch” in Washington. The formerly free people of the several
states became citizen-subjects of the United States (singular) -
subject to its universal authority. Oh, they were allowed to vote. But
never given a choice.


Millions of Americans, though beaten on the field, still denied the
right of Washington’s rule in their hearts – where they remained free in
spirit, at least. They resented the new massa in Washington –
regarding him (rightly) as a usurper, a tyrant, a fiend. It was
understood they were ruled by force – and very much without their
consent.


Roughly four score and seven years later came FDR – and another
pivotal moment in the changing (the warping) of the American mind. FDR
taught browbeaten Americans to love the government. To look upon it as a benevolent source of Manna (source of
the Manna always left unspoken). Hard times? Bad luck? Washington can
“help.” Over the ensuing decades, this became institutionalized –
leading us to the present debacle of annual, every other year and every
fourth year auctions presided over by the most loathsome characters
imaginable – politicians – made possible by an increasingly loathsome –
because degenerated – mob.


Up for bidding: The property of your fellow man – including even his physical person. And as he bids you, you in your turn bid on him.


The auctioneer, meanwhile, collects his commission.


Until enough people to make a difference recover their moral sense –
and decline to partake – these auctions will continue. More, they will
increase in rapacity as the crowd loses all scruple and demandseverything – which it inevitably will. Because nothing is off the table. Then, of course, there will benothing.
At least, not for the screeching crowd. Everything will have been
consumed – and not one of them will have a rightful reason to complain.
He who victimizes cannot object to being victimized in turn.


And the auctioneer? He’ll end up owning everything – including you and me.


Throw it in the Woods?

    There are over 300,000 Ron Paul supporters and probably more in the independant, democrate, libertarian parties just waiting to see if he runs thrid party. He is not as unpopular as the Main Stream Media wants you to believe.

    I don't like Rush he is a blow bag as far as I care. He won the Virgin Islands primary and took half of the delagates in Nevada and all the delagates in Missori. Don't tell me he isn't popular and has no support. That just makes you look like a dumbass.

    Ron Paul Wins Popular Vote In U.S. Virgin Islands GOP Caucus

    Ron Paul Wins

    Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul has finally won something -- sort of.

    The Texas congressman has not won a single primary or caucus this election cycle, but he pulled out a win last week in the popular vote in the GOP caucus in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Paul was able to rack up 112 votes, more than Mitt Romney’s 101, Rick Santorum’s 23 and Newt Gingrich’s 18.

    Unfortunately for Paul, under the complicated rules governing the U.S. Virgin Island caucus, he won only a single delegate to Mitt Romney’s seven -- which in the fight to win the presidential nomination is what really counts. One other delegate has not yet committed to a candidate.

    In the U.S. Virgin Islands, voters first cast a ballot for a presidential candidate and afterwards vote on delegates to the national convention. While a candidate may obtain more popular votes, the elected delegates may not support that same candidate. Although Paul won the popular vote, three delegates supporting Romney were selected along with three Republican National Committee “member pledge” delegates, totalling six for Romney. In addition, one uncommitted del...

    In the U.S. Virgin Islands, voters first cast a ballot for a presidential candidate and afterwards vote on delegates to the national convention. While a candidate may obtain more popular votes, the elected delegates may not support that same candidate. Although Paul won the popular vote, three delegates supporting Romney were selected along with three Republican National Committee “member pledge” delegates, totalling six for Romney. In addition, one uncommitted delegate announced he would also support Romney, bringing the count to seven.

    Despite the confusion Paul’s campaign site is calling it a victory for their campaign marking the end of a long losing streak for Paul, who also failed to win a primary or caucus during his 2008 presidential run.

    "The AP and others reported yesterday that Mitt Romney won the Virgin Islands caucus. And they aren’t entirely wrong, because of the crazy rules that are around caucuses, Mitt Romney was able to qualify for more delegates, and win them. One of the uncommitted delegates also went to Romney," Paul's campaign said.

    It is 2 fold. There is mass evidence of voter fraud. But it's the dumbed down people who are the biggest problem.
