Voting: The Grand Illusion

King of The World
Thoreau said that voting was like games of chance. Any person that is honest with themselves must admit that Thoreau hit the nail on the head. I have contemplated the grand illusion myself and I must say that voting is satisfying only to those who cannot think or those who desire not to burden themselves with thinking. I must admit that is a lot of people. You see voting gives the illusion of participation so people are psychologically comforted. When they leave the voting booths they feel patriotic and they feel like they have done something of value but the reality is that they have done nothing. You ever hear someone say ” if you didn’t vote you can’t say anything”? I always find that to be hilarious. I don’t vote and that’s precisely the reason I can say something! After George Bush what kind of person can still believe in voting? The reality is : Voting is like games of chance because you do not follow your vote to make sure it goes where you want it to. Nor do you really care. It is only the illusion that matters. Every year you hear about votes being lost. Thousands of absentee ballots not counted…and this is what they straight up tell you. Every year. One election year I saw on the news that they found duffel bags full of votes laying off the side of the highway? Yeah…if they can’t throw them away then they’ll invent the super delegates and the super commitees etc and they always have the electoral college etc etc…lol. Not to mention how they have cleverly gotten rid of the paper ballot ( which could be traced and recounted) and replaced them with easily hacked and controlled machines http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2015/04/meet-the-e-voting-machine-so-easy-to-hack-it-will-take-your-breath-away/ and not to mention the redistricting game http://redistrictinggame.org/ and not to mention that if I give you 2 pair of jeans and say “choose a pair.. Bush or Clinton”…you really didn’t choose anything. I chose 2 pair of jeans ( candidates) and then gave them to you to choose 1. I could have chosen any 2 pair but YOU REALLY DIDN’T HAVE A CHOICE DID YOU? No….you had the choice given to you which in reality was no choice at all. Regardless of all that insanity….here is more: Do you know any candidate that you vote for? Do you know Obama? Hillary? Do you personally know any of the candidates that you so willingly and foolishly give your life too? Have you ever sat down and had a conversation with any of those people you chose to rule over you? I don’t even know how it is possible to vote for or against someone you don’t really know? Yeah….it’s absurd. Ever thought about it? Obviously not.

“I am a cook in the US Senate but I still need food stamps to feed my children” Wednesday 22 April 2015 http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/apr/22/i-am-a-cook-in-the-us-senate-but-i-still-need-food-stamps-to-feed-my-children

What can be said? If these people don’t care about the person that cooks their food….what in the world makes you think they care about you? Idiocracy! They made over 40,000 laws the year before last so they could keep the prisons full and I don’t know how many laws they made last year? You have had 44 presidents and today you are on the verge of economic collapse. They sent your jobs overseas and barely want to give you minimum wage.You are on the verge of race wars and 1 out of 5 children are starving and they are making laws to put homeless people in jail while the bankers who created many of those homeless people got bonuses and you are still voting just as proud as can be. What the hell are you proud of? That your children are going to grow up without privacy and rights? That they will be dumber than a bag of rocks even after voluntary becoming debtor slaves just to get an education that won’t get them a good job? You have nothing to be proud of concerning voting. You should actually be ashamed. The presidency was just about finished after GWB and they knew it so they had to try something new. I mean something new other than another 911. Hence a so called black president to fool the masses into thinking something might have changed. That trick worked for a few years until the people realized that Obama and Bush are related in every possible way. They have 1 trick left now to stave off revolution and that is Hillary. Yeah…a woman. The black man trick bought them some time to get things in order for when they come to get you for the fema camps etc. Next Hillary will buy them some more time to put the finishing touches on the new world order in which your slavery becomes visible and in your face. They may not even need her to win. Just the distraction of a manipulated and false hope (1st woman president and false in the belief that presidents wield the power ) may be enough since we can clearly see the police have already been militarized and unleashed on the citizen. Since we can clearly see Jade Helm 15 etc as we speak. Let it be known that I give no man authority over me. Let it be known that I vote for no presidents and I participate in no games that have been set up for children. I am the greatest man in this world. There is none for me to vote for. I am not a member of the masses. I am a individual. A living, breathing, thinking individual. Sovereign. Slogans don’t move me. Leaders don’t run for office. Leaders are too busy leading. I have no handler because I cannot be handled. You cannot package me and sell me to the masses like a bag of chips. I could never be “politically correct”. I could never be a managed man. Only a public that is devoid of intelligence votes for managed men and only managed men (and women) run for office. Ain’t that a bitch? Now….if I haven’t made it clear enough perhaps a comedian can speak to you better than I.

Science and Technology: So What?

What kind of world do you think this would be without science or technology? I think about this and I come to the conclusion that the world actually might not be so bad and in some cases even better than it is today. I base my opinion on what I know. I cannot base my opinion on what I have been told. Example: They say that Louis Pasteur invented a method to stop milk and wine from causing sickness, a process that came to be called pasteurization.This may be true but then again I do not know? I know they said that Columbus discovered America but I have discovered many writings that say he didn’t and weren’t Indians already where they call America? As a matter of fact I can state unequivocally that pretty much everything I was taught in school was a lie. Even the way I was taught to read and write or do math I have discovered was a lie? A kind of low-grade fuel for the “automobile”. I uncovered faster and better ways to read,write and do math all by myself. I have to cut out all the fat so to speak and deal directly with the meat…so to speak. Heresay regardless of being correct or not is useless in my quest for truth and understanding. So…I contemplate the world and its inhabitants and its necessities and superfluities. I look at my life from birth to present and contemplate society and societies advances and I can easily categorize a few major areas of importance and relevance. Health (mental,physical and spiritual),living conditions,human development. A surprisingly short list? Nevertheless….using this criteria as I analyze the advances of modern society I inevitably come to the conclusion that perhaps we would be better off without science and technology. Example: No technology = no television. No television means I must go outside and be close to mother nature and inside I must be closer to my family etc. Most would say that technology like science has no doubt improved the living conditions of modern man but has it really? People are working harder than ever today to make ends meet…just to get food on the table in many cases and this is in America? Science Example: Science has created vaccinations and other cures for diseases etc right? When I think of how science benefits me directly I can only think of the study I read yesterday that said less educated people are dying younger. Which is a non sequitur (statement containing an illogical conclusion) since a study months ago showed that American high school seniors read at a 5th grade level. Everyone is miseducated so does that count as less education? Does miseducation count as less education? It should. If science has been so beneficial why are people dying younger today? http://politix.topix.com/homepage/2232-less-educated-americans-are-dying-younger Perhaps I would not have the material comforts that I enjoy today such as a smart phone but then again what good is a smart phone to an intelligent person who doesn’t particularly enjoy talking to stupid people? Perhaps I would not have a nice car to get to work in but I work from my home and really don’t need a car? Perhaps I’d have better relationships with my family,neighbors and community if there were no science or technology? Any thinking person must admit that it seems as if the more advancements are made in science and technology the more the human being becomes distant…less human? It seems to me that since I have been born the only thing I can see from science and technology is that now I’m observed 24/7,they’re experimenting with mapping the brain to determine how to influence (which is a subtle and kind word for control) people,they’re sending crap to mars which I cannot verify,they’ve created social networks to waste my time and herd sheep into cyber cages of their own choosing and they have created better idiot boxes and weapons (to kill the body and the mind) and cell phones to allow people to turn in their neighbor for pissing on his own garage or to report the funny looking guy with the turban to authorities all the while being groped themselves and being concerned that any day the fools in charge will legalize rape. It is 2012 and they can’t solve a drought? No cure for cancer or even the common cold? Can’t solve hunger or homelessness? Yeah…personally I’m not  impressed with either science or technology. Technology and science? So what.

Near Is Far

The bible says that a prophet is welcome everywhere but in his own home. There is another saying that says the same thing but not many have understood it from the perspective I am putting forth right now. Man secretly searches for masters in far away lands and God is beyond the skies…somewhere near infinity and eternity.Therefore a prophet is welcome everywhere but in his own home. You see…those in his own home cannot recognize him as a prophet.They cannot recognize him as a prophet because a prophet is near to God and God is far away? Now if the prophet travels abroad he will be recognized and treated like a prophet because he comes from afar. Oh yeah…that saying I mentioned is “one cannot see the forest because of the trees”.You no doubt have heard someone say “you should take a step back to get a better view” or “you are too close to the situation”.What they really mean is that near is far? It is the psychology of the masses. Near is far. The psychology is that man can talk about reality and even experience reality but in reality never comes “in contact” with reality. He subconciously and successfully avoids reality throughout his entire life. Near is urgent and pressing. Far is in the future and not so pressing. One has time. It is this idea that one has time that is the underlying principle in the unconcious avoidance of reality.It is also the reason that Jesus is praised in the abstract….I mean the people really don’t want to see Jesus because then they would have to face reality and not just talk about it.Jesus (in their minds) is far…therefore they are able to remain in a familiar,comfortable and safe environment..an environment that prevents them from being checked….an environment that does not upset their fragile eggshell mentalities. Man exists in a perpetual and eternal illusion. Exist has the prefix or word ex in it. Ex means something that used to be. Used to exist? Existed before but not anymore? Near is far.
