Forum Post: Non-Voter 2014: One Small Step for 1% Fascism, One Giant Leap for US Idiocracy!

The Politician ~ Voter, Information Gap: The Gap that screws us!

Just as Prog-Talk (Progressive Talk Radio -- do any of you know about it?-- the descendents of Air America Radio) has been censored (censorship gone wild after the 2012 election) from the Public Airwaves, MSM reports just enough news to maintain commercial viability, RW Hate & Lies blasts 24/365 with derelict impunity, rendering the public MUSHROOMED (kept in the dark and fed shit), so it is with Dem Politicians when the electorate does what it did in 2010 and now, in 2014 (lowest Voter turnout since the height of WW-2). Who could blame Dems for thinking the American People are Crazy or Idiotic, or BOTH?

The American People are largely ignorant of the Political-Government World. With the ubiquity of anti-Politics and anti-Government jokes, conjectures and resolves, false conclusions are the Norm. "They all wear suits and talk about the same stuff, they must all be the same." "You hear it everywhere and everyone knows, they're all the same." "So what's the use? They're all corrupt!"

And:

Politicians (mostly Dems, because the Con constituency does what their Authority Figures tell them) are ignorant of the American People. Dem-Pols don't realize that the People can't see or comprehend what is happening in Government. "Can't they see that RepubliCons are lying, sabotaging and only working for the 1% to disable government?" "Is that what Americans want?" "Don't they see what we are up against?"

Neutered NPR no longer has a Senior News Analyst like they had with Daniel Shorr. CBS's Dan Rather was fired for a Font error, while telling the truth. Keith Olbermann banished for being Keith Olberman. Smug Ys/millennials get there politics from satire and parody and it never gets reinforced with serious news, so even enlightened political knowledge is relegated, quarantined, to comedy. Try talking to a millennial about politics, they can't do it with a straight face. It's all a joke to them. They take New Age (Sweet World) conformity more seriously than politics, because it makes them a more compatible, stress-free and successful employee. Fighting and bickering for politics or unionized labor are as foreign to them as a Dan Shorr on NPR, a News Media that informs, investigative reporting, penalties for lies and propaganda, monopoly breakups, a thriving middle-class, free college, free phones that always work, radios that offer real diversity for free, and as foreign as VOTING As Civic Duty!!! They (millennials and the disengaged) are turning their focus on politics around toward themselves, they can only do something about their own individual selves. Democracy is a fairytale to them. And they get NO information to the contrary.

Dem Politicians see a mirror image, reverse negative, picture of the American People and what they can do about it, and they, too, get NO information to the contrary.

This Information Gap is real, and the consequences are deadly dangerous. How many people died and/or suffered from the consequences of the W-Cheney reign of laissez faire, shock and awe and 1%-GOP Obstruction & Sabotage? How many are still dying and suffering? Uncountable, poverty, homeless, war, healthcare and violence effected Millions!! The Cons understand, embrace and have made Progress by building on their win in 2010, gerrymandering, blitzing the media with lies, and sabotaging any and all Progress by Dems and Obama (their easy, black bulls-eye in the White House). And the only consequence 1%-Cons care about is winning.

Meanwhile, People don't know what progress even is, what the Parties stand for, what the political Philosophies are, or what vast and glaring differences there are between them, so they disengage and/or turn inward. They just Sit, sometimes in non-partisan drum circles. Which is NIRVANA for Cons, Dismaying for Dems, and Self-Fulfilling for the Oblivious and Snotty American Non-Voters ~ who in their fathomlessly arrogant ignorance have enabled the political equivalent of Ebola and ISIS to run roughshod all over and through America's Political-Governmental world. Way to be played and make the rest of the country pay for it, ASSHOLES!

So how do we bridge this terrible Information Gap? Education? $100 fines for not Voting? Replace Eric Holder with Ralph Nader? Have Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders video tape PSAs threatening to kill themselves if Non-Voters don't WTFU! Small surgical Civil Wars held in stadiums around the country? All of the above? Disturbingly, if you ask both 1%-Cons and 99%-Non-Voters what to do, the answer is exactly the same, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

Well now the master purchased zombies have both houses they can expose their stupid agenda, and we can shed light on it here, and have some reason to try to wake up the slaves who have been shackled by a media and journalists that have lost their cojones and traded responsibilities to a higher master, money.

Oh yea, when may wages, minimum wages go up, only by unionizing, workers need to value themselves once more.

Oops, what will their agenda be?

Perhaps having a disinterested and disengaged majority is as inevitable as death and taxes. All any one individual can do is to keep making an effort.

Let's get real on this web site and start advocating politics that will change this spiral into Idiocracy!! Nonpartisan is Unicorn Logic!!!!

Move to Amend has real possibilities as a starting point for direct democracy action to be developed/implemented. Overturning citizens united would be a good start - but would not even be scratching the surface of what else could get accomplished in the same manner (IMO).

When 2/3 of Voters are conned into not Voting, overturning a million CUs is not going to change the outcome.

We have a populace hurtling toward apolitical, non-Voter Idiocracy. That's the problem. No amount of CU dark money can withstand the united will of the People.

"In whose delusional mind,” to paraphrase Jon Stewart, “Is democracy made better by two thirds of the electorate forfeiting their right to Vote in it?”

When the voters only choices are bad and worse. When both major parties are sell outs who whore and pander their loyalty to big money. Where is the motivation to vote for sell out choices?

When you vote in the USA you're voting for a corrupt party that has proven it will inflict harm on you. It's like going to vote to have either you left leg or right leg cut off. Both choices suck.

Hey Unicorn chaser, ALL CHOICES are "bad or worse," or the lesser of two evils, ALL of them. Perfection is a lie and/or delusion, it DOES NOT exist.

What you seem or pretend to miss are the humungous differences between "bad and worse." Dems don't want to Privatize Social Security and Medicare. Cons don't want to legalize pot, marriage freedom, or equal workplace rights for women. Dems don't want to suppress anybody's Vote or exempt the rich from taxation. Cons think only the Rich should Vote and the 99% should pay all the taxes. And on and on and on...! Knock on your eyes and ears and chant "Open, Open, Open..."

WSmith quote "ALL CHOICES are bad or worse".

With a belief system like that no wonder you're so easy to please! You must be part of the Bottom 1%, because the Top 1% think there are only Good and Better choices.

You must have some derivitive of Stockholm syndrome to want to defend our abusers.Did the DNC kidnap you when you were a child? Also, you should get some therapy about your Unicorn fixation. Freud would have a field day with your phallic obsessions. Why do you keep talking about chasing phallic symbols? Sadly for you, It's all too revealing.

And another thing, listening to you it is obvious that pot is legal in your state of Oregon. Anyone would have to be stoned off their ass to think like you. But Geez, Take It Easy !!! Save some for the rest of us. You give legalizing Marijuana a bad name. Put your bong down and let your head clear out. Maybe you'll snap out of your delusions about the Democraps being wellmeaning.

Oooh, the quote, I see you called into the 1%-Con Talking Point Hot Line, but it sounds like you got an intern, or BW. Or maybe you just don't rank for the good BS that SSS gets.

Here's my open question to relate to your rw superiors, do liberals and progressives ever troll rw websites? And/Or is this really a rw website in disguise?

You know that term for stupid people, half-wit? That's not you. You're like a fifth wit. Or worse. Alias.

Those 2/3's that opted out - could be all that Move to Amend needs to succeed - that is if they can understand their ability in taking part would largely force government to comply.

And Self-Fulfilling for the Oblivious and Snotty American Non-Voters ~ who in their fathomlessly arrogant ignorance have enabled the political equivalent of Ebola and ISIS to run roughshod all over and through America's Political-Governmental world. Way to be played and make the rest of the country pay for it, ASSHOLES! CU money is nothing compared to 2/3 stupidity!

The American Non-Voter sees the Dem vs Con fight as a game with all the players wearing the same uniform & name: POLITICIANS. This was contrived by the 1%-Cons and succeeded. The Both-Same MEME overwhelmed reality. AMAZING! ASININE!

CIVICS EDUCATION!!!!

"Why aren't Dem haters gloating? Cons are terrible on global warming."

There is no legitimate argument that Cons aren't awful, disastrous and/or evil on science, pollution, externalities, the environment, and the subsequent CLIMATE DESTABILIZATION. On that deficit they have no equal. In fact you can't name an issue, policy or philosophy that Cons aren't awful, disastrous and/or evil on.

Dem or liberal or progressive issues in Measures or Propositions largely WON ~ legalization of Pot, higher minimum wages, etc..

But people who Vote Dem largely didn't bother to participate, allowing Cons in some districts to win on Votes as low as 18%. The Voter Turnout has not been this low since the height of WW-2.

The reason for the silence is twofold: the transparent success of the 1%-Cons at Playing the Left, undecideds and easily confused to abandon the democratic process; and the terrifying realization by Non-Voters that they just fucked themselves BIG TIME and/or that they got so totally Played!

Of course to some quiet unicorn chasers, having a 1%-Con controlled Congress and Judiciary can only be improved by a Jeb Bush POTUS, "because THEN people will finally see the need for UNICORNS!!!"

Non-Partisan drum circle anybody?!?
