Dems vs. GOP: False Choice
So I’ve tried to hold off on political posts at the beginning, but I feel compelled today due to a conversation at work. It started because of Obama’s strike on Libya, but I’m not going to discuss that. For those readers who don’t know me but have read my facebook page, it may come as a shock to you that I can’t stand politics. It’s a dirty game. I don’t care about Democrats or Republicans or Communists or any party. Because they are all the same, in practice. I experienced this fact first-hand with my previous job selling an asphalt treatment to city and state governments. The reason I make so many political observations is because it is in our faces everyday, and I believe that we should speak out against tyranny while we can. For my trouble, I have been called many names and have been accused of having “controversial” views. What a scary world we live in when “live and let live” is a controversial view.
My political philosophy can be stated thus: Every citizen on planet earth is a different person with different needs and skills. One size does not fit all. All political ideologies within government force the masses to accept (and pay for) things they may be morally opposed to. Are you a peacenik who opposes the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, etc? Are you a secularist who opposes the fusion of church and state? Are you a fiscal conservative who opposes the massive welfare state, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.? Are you an evangelical Christian who opposes tax-funded abortion? Are you a civil liberties advocate who opposes the police state, surveillance, and porno scanners at the airport? Are you a communist who opposes the exploitation of the working class to glorify the military-industrial complex? Too bad, the government takes your hard earned money (by force) to fund these projects against your consent. There is nothing “free country” about that. No matter what your political leanings, the ruling class is opposed to you.
