Politricks 2010: Voting To Keep Fear Alive…


2008 could have been a hundred years ago as far as the body politic of America is concerned. Actually, 140 years ago to be exact, during the height of the Reconstruction period. We were a nation divided then by race and class and we remain a nation divided today along those same lines.

The Stewart/Colbert rally in D.C. only solidified in my mind that no one in America is listening to one another. We are just ranters now, and I am here on a website ranting about it. Republican, Democrat, Conservative, Liberal are all worthless labels when you consider our debt and fractured economic system.

All we could do on Saturday at the rally was to laugh to keep from crying. I felt lost in a sea of people who were all still waiting for a saviour or better still a leader. Nostalgia is America’s number one export and for now the nostalgia surrounding the 2008 elections is what many of us will use to get us through this day.

I’m voting for fear tho’ this year. The fear of economic collapse on Wall Street, the fear of immigration, the fear of Muslim airplane bombers, the fear of anything different like change. If nostalgia is America’s export then fear is our main import and I am voting so that fear will win in a landslide at the polls.

Who’s with me?

    That second paragraph sums up my feelings pretty well there Dallas. Politics have become full-fledged entertainment… Which will only continue to have negative effects on the American populace.

    i agree with frank. politics itself is just a higher form of organized crime. we know the majority of these motherfuckers are crooked all the good ones get screwed over. what happened to al gore a man who wanted to save the planet. wanted to push forward for higher standards when it came to dealing with pollution. not just america enforce it on a global level. instead we got blah blah blah we going get that oil son and start a war.
