Why I do not vote

Postby MASONIC PLOT » Tue Nov 07, 2006 7:53 pm

Let’s examine the ritual of voting, its purpose, and its insanity. <br><br>First, a summary of why I don’t vote: I won’t give anyone permission to rule me, and I don’t have the right to give anyone permission to rule you. Clear enough? <br><br>Imagine a country in which a self-appointed, self-perpetuating dictatorship were to swipe half of what everyone earns, as well as meddling in every aspect of common life. For the moment, ignore the fact that this could not be imposed on the country by force (due to the armed populace). What would your attitude be towards such a regime? Hatred? Willingness and eagerness to use force to stop them, and/or exterminate them? Me too. <br><br>So since someone is doing those things to the people here now, why don’t you have that attitude? Because every two years they let you walk into a booth and press a button? Whoop-Deedoo. Don’t you feel mighty as you press that button, before going off to earn more counterfeit money to give to various levels of "government"? If this looks like freedom to you, then I would also like to "free" you. <br><br>Jackney Sneeb and I are going into the “democracy” business. Here’s how it works: you give us half of what you earn, and if you don’t, we kill you. But wait! That’s not all! (If it was, you’d hate us, and possibly kill us.) Every two years, we will allow you to come to our polling place, walk into a booth, and press either a button that says "Larken Rose" or a button that says "Jackney Sneeb.” Feel free to swell with pride as you do it, too, and wax eloquent about your patriotic duty. That’s the whole deal. For your convenience, you can hand over your cash while voting. <br><br>Oh, you say you want that button-pressing to do something? Like maybe make it so only one of us (whoever gets more votes) has power? Picky, picky. You don’t get that now. Jackney and I will give you just what you get now: after you choose a button, Mr. Sneeb and I will get together, and decide how to rule you. You don’t need to know all the details of how we come to these decisions. Remember, we are representing you when we do it. Just trust us to look out for your best interests. (And by the way, you are to blame for whatever we do, because we are only representing you. It isn’t our responsibility.) <br><br>I sense you are not thrilled with this proposal. Well . . . did you vote today? <br><br>"If you don’t vote, then you can’t complain about the results." <br><br>Apply that to the deal above, and you will see just how idiotic a statement it is. But it is a fine propaganda tool to use on the moronic masses. I can’t count the number of times that people have gone from "if you don’t vote . . ." to "if you’re not doing anything to change things . . ." without even realizing they're talking about two different things. It’s freaking insane. <br><br>This is the essence of the grand delusion. The current criterion for the Divine Right of Kings is the ballot booth. We gave up the mythology of swords in rocks, bloodlines, etc., and chose a worse basis for the delusion. It is entirely a religious belief, and is more bizarre than any other religion I can think of. At least other religions make up some non-human, divine "authority" to bow to. The nutcase civil authoritarians instead say that they themselves are the source of the right to rule ("government of the people, by the people, blah blah blah"), and yet are subject to that rule. They didn’t even bother putting a curtain around that little guy who runs the Wizard of Oz gimmick. They know there is no substance to it, and they still believe in it. <br><br>Here’s a simple question that makes most people freak out: "If you don’t have the right to tax, regulate, and control me yourself, how does your voting give that right to someone else? (And if you can do it with theft, why can’t you do it with mass murder?) "Uh . . . uh . . . uh . . . it’s the system we have." Well then let’s go back to the "system" of soggy bitches in puddles flinging weaponry around. It caused less damage. Calling a lunatic ritual a "system" doesn’t make it rational. <br><br>The power of the United States "government" does not come from force. It comes from the delusion; the belief that these cult rituals give someone the right to rule. Not only would the moronic masses not obey if they didn’t have this delusion, but the politicians’ hired thugs wouldn’t be using force if they didn’t have this delusion too (with the exception of a few who would just be honest mercenary assholes). When you go into that booth, you legitimize this lunacy. Regardless of who you vote for, you are making it very clear that you believe that this process gives the right to rule -- to rule you and everyone else. <br><br>Libertarians who vote often bitch at me for saying this. But it is extra-loony for them to vote (even ignoring the fact that the basis of their philosophy rules out "government" entirely). If they know they will lose anyway, why legitimize the ritual that will supposedly grant someone the right to rule them? "We are making a statement." Yeah, and what a statement it is. "I don’t really believe in inalienable rights, and I don’t really believe that the initiation of force is wrong." If a libertarian does believe these things, how does this button-pushing bullshit fit into the equation? <br><br>"We believe these truths to be self-evident, that every voter is endowed by the voting booth with certain inalienable rights . . ." If extortion, under any euphemism ("taxation"), is wrong, and stopping it with force is right (as the premise of libertarianism states), then what the hell is this bizarre election crap? <br><br>Why don’t we add the local murderers, rapists, and thieves to the ballot? Let’s have campaigns for who gets to be the head murderer of the district. "I promise to murder people more fairly." All the murderers in the area will decide how the people will choose their new Chief Murderer. Let’s all get together and vote for Ghandi as Chief Murderer. That is the proper way to reduce murder. AAK! <br><br>Sometimes libertarians say they are just doing this loony thing in the hopes of making a change without violence. Go dance around a bonfire with goat skulls. It will be more effective. A change can be made without violence, and the first step of that change has to be unmasking all the political cult ritual crap for what it is: crap. Stop asking the false god of the cannibals to please tell his followers to stop trying to eat you. He isn’t there, and you’re making an ass out of yourself, while at the same time validating the beliefs of the dickheads who want you on the menu. <br><br><br>Larken Rose <p></p><i></i>

From Cryptogon<br><br>Waiting for Clarity On the Brink of Oblivion <br><br><br>The tone of the emails I've been receiving has changed dramatically over the past several days.<br><br>People are now terrified about the events unfolding inside the U.S.<br><br>Panic is setting in, and for some silly reason, people think this upcoming election holds the key to the future.<br><br>Guys, wake the F up. This Republican/Democrat thing is beyond embarrassing.<br><br>Please understand: THERE ARE NO POLITICAL SOLUTIONS TO THE PROBLEMS THE U.S. IS FACING. The outcome of this election is meaningless, one way or the other. The more you keep grasping for glimmers of hope within the political system, the worse off you will be.<br><br>The appearance of choice, as a mechanism of control, has served the elite well for several decades in the U.S. Appearances broke down after the 2000 Presidential election. And the 2004 Presidential election... Excuse me while I spit out the window just thinking about the candidates. Never mind the endemic vote fraud.<br><br>Will a big Democratic win calm people down? Maybe that's what They'll allow. It might ease the panic, so the ship of fools can sail on for another few months. If They were smart, that's what They'd do. Hell, maybe it'll be Hillary in 2008, with the ability to designate any American as an enemy combatant... Sure. Tell me another one.<br><br>But then again, maybe not. Maybe it's time to rub your noses in the Freedom.<br><br>I hate to be making so many Magic 8 Ball references lately, but that's what the U.S. political system has become. Believe in that thing and it will give you the answers you're looking for. You're totally doomed and clueless, but your belief in the Magic 8 Ball is somehow comforting. By all means, vote.<br><br>Jeff Wells recently wrote: <br>American politics isn't just theatre; it's dinner theatre, on par with a Medieval Times franchise. It can put on a decent show: the way the white and black knights joust you'd think they meant it, and that the guy who falls off his horse really gets hurt and the champion wins something of meaning. Voters are "treated like royalty" - every man a king! - but their crowns are made of tissue paper. And while the menu is all you can eat, all you can order is bullshit.<br>So, let's dispence with the bullshit about U.S. elections.<br><br>What varies, with the passage of time, is the number of people who get it. As more people get it, the more dangerous the situation becomes. The Machine will destroy itself rather than lose control. As the appearance of choice fails to serve as an effective mechanism of control, more overt mechanisms of control, which have been under construction for years, will be used.<br><br>Nothing that is happening now should come as a surprise to any of you. The entire program has been spelled out on Cryptogon and other sites---never mind the thousands of books---for years. The collapse of the U.S. into overt fascism is following a fairly predictable series of events. While the exact timetable is more difficult to nail down, when the state begins to require citizens to obtain "CLEARANCE" in order to leave, you've pretty much arrived at the end of the line. And then what? What excuses will be made? When soldiers are breaking down your door, will you point your TV remote control at them and try to change the channel? Tell them you voted? Tell them you paid your taxes? Ask them to please stay away from your daughter, because she's not a terrorist?<br><br>This has all happened before (it's happening now, actually, in many parts of the world, especially where U.S. influence is pervasive). What's different is that the technologies of political control have vastly increased the strength of the iron fist. The options are: get out of the way of that thing, to the best of your ability, or be crushed by the grip of it around your neck. Some might try to attack it directly, but that option should be seen as a creative form of suicide. (Oh yeah, you can attempt to join the ranks of the regime.)<br><br>This is the warning I've been repeating for years: You do not want to try to reach the exit as millions of other people attempt to do the same thing. Waiting for clarity is not often rewarded.<br><br>Many Cryptogon readers think that they're going to hedge their bets, and stay put for as long as possible, before making a strategic move. I like all of you. I love some of you, as you are my family members and closest friends, but please hear me: To know what's coming and to think that you will be able to time your exit properly is the height of folly.<br><br>It is not easy to pull off a strategic move under "normal" circumstances. Having made a strategic move, I'm in a position to speak on this matter with authority.<br><br>It's not easy.<br><br>The path is lined with red tape and bullshit under the best of circumstances. And the window of opportunity is closing with each passing day. To think that you will be able to do it after an event, when borders are closed, or mostly closed, when internal passports may be required to travel across state lines, when the fascists must approve your exit plans, when your cash is not convertible into foreign currencies or maybe even worthless...<br><br>Friends and family, you're in a clinical state of denial.<br><br>Let's fast forward a week, a month or a year from today; nobody knows exactly when it will happen... When you could have made it to a better place, with relative ease, you sat by and waited, wished and hoped it wouldn't come to this. And now, the freeways are jammed, the airports are closed and soldiers are checking your "papers." Some number of people are being loaded onto trucks, but you can't really see past the spotlights shining at you from the checkpoint up ahead...<br><br>"Oh, God, why did I wait for it to come to this?" some of you will think as you look at your spouse and children, who will be looking back at you, wondering the same thing. <p></p><i></i>

I understand perfectly with what you are saying. Your words ring true to my own beliefs on this subject specifically, but also in a broader sense.<br><br>I literally voted, but for none of the above. <p></p><i></i>

i think this is a very cynical thread.

There is no popular support for a socialist revolution in USA. So what do you expect?

The president is president for american communists and the klan alike.

Obama WAS elected - and his agenda is very different to Bushco's - though doubtless there will be much crossover: america's interests don't change with a vote.

There were candidates standing far to the left of Obama? - and far to the right. Previously there have been green candidates - was there this time?

For those that won't vote - what do they propose instead that can function to represent and maintain a land riven between communist and the Klan? Each man has his say - what can you suggest instead?

Suggesting all government is illegitimate deprives Obama legitimacy. That's a bit sour coming from the same people who suggest nothing will change under Obama? If he has no legitimacy - then how will things change? If no democratic leader has legitimacy how can anything change?
