You might be a boomer if you are convinced that it is Republicans or Democrats who are cause of all the problems in the world.
To all of my brainwashed, older friends, I offer this as something to ponder while you are doing your crosswords:
It's pretty simple.
Seems how you are one of the older boomers who really can't grasp how the system works, I will try to explain it to you. Although I think I have before. But I've done a lot of drugs, so maybe I'm thinking of someone else.
When you follow your strategy, it makes turning things around impossible. This is because despite focusing on the "lesser" evil, you are indeed then endorsing something that is more evil than the previous evil.
The scale of corruption can be ever increasing, while still giving you two choices that are not on the same scale.
So while you are attempting to remove something corrupt from office, you are actually endorsing the overall corruption because its a system based on precedents.
You felt that Obama was less corrupt than Romney. You are most likely right. However, but endorsing the less corrupt, you are still lowering the bar on what is acceptable (as proven by "liberals" now voting for war criminals, never ending bombs, torture, wall st bailouts - to me that is most ironic. A group marching and protesting bailouts and then people coming on their websites and telling them to vote for the people who are forcing the bailouts.)
Hope that clarifies how the system works when the people don't participate.
To the small percentage of older women and men who DO understand this, this obviously doesn't apply to you. Rock on my friends, rock on.
