Ever been to a football game and watched two morons duke it out, all in the name of some millionairs on the field that are on "opposite sides" even though they realize its a game and they all go out to dinner with each other afterwards?

Ever wonder how people can become so passionate over people they have never even met, that wouldn't piss on them if on fire?

Our political system is much the same. People root against the other one, hoping to "win" and claim victory. The fans of the other team are the enemy. They must be destroyed.

Of course, just like in sports, most of the morons on the sideline of the political sport in Murca don't realize the players realize its just a game, they are all millionaires, and they actually hang out with each other from time to time as associates.

Again, they realize its just a game. To them, watching the commoners go nuts on the internet- or the stands- is completely hysterical. They watch as people verbally and physically assault each other all in their name. But again, they realize its just a game.

Now imagine that some of those football players out there on the field weren't even that talented. Imagine that the coach was actually putting shit players on the field, as was teh other coach, because controlling the game is much more important than actually being competitive, giving the fans the best product, etc.

Thats the Dem vs Rep shitshow in the USA. Total losers with no skills up there taking advantage of weak minded imbeciles, all in the name of something they themselves sort of understand but really don't want to get too deep with.

And both teams lose. And the fans lose. We all lose. Every time. For decades on end.

And yet every game is a sell out. Its advertised as the Super Bowl. "the most important election of our lifetime"... "its a different world now" etc etc etc. The marketers have a gift that keeps on giving. No matter how shitty the product, you can charge 1 billion to make a website and 100 million to make awful ads promoting it to people who don't understand it to begin with.

And it never stops. The machine works 24/7 while Murca patiently waits for that magical night, vote night. The miracle night where we all decide which stooge to give our power and control and voice to for years at a time.

And then a new cast of bumbling bimbos takes the stage and attempts to use their C level skills to achieve some very low level victories....

It never stops.

It never stops.

It should stop, but it doesn't stop. Does someone like it that way?
