If you believe that you will advance or repair this nation, much less the world, merely by voting in the upcoming election (or in any election) then you are both an outright and ignorant fool and an intentional and unashamed coward.
Now, don’t misunderstand me – I am in no way discouraging you from voting. That is not my point.
But in a Republic (or even in something as degenerate and pointless as a mere democracy) voting is but a duty, it is never a Solution.
The reason your Republic, hell the reason this world, stands upon a precipice of self-destruction is not because of the people that you do or do not vote for (though every honest man has to know instinctively that you have created this shit-bed for yourselves based upon your relentlessly juvenile desire to “be led“), but this set of situations continues to exist primarily because of your own cowardice and lack of balls.
If long ago you had simply had the courage and the manhood to actually revolt against many of the things you have simply bent the knee to as half-men thralls and soiled fealty-serfs then you wouldn’t be here and you wouldn’t have the “rulers” that plague you and your feckless and impotent generations.
By all means vote, for that is your duty as a Citizen and a Free Man in a Republic.
But do not confuse your duty with an Accomplishment or your obligations with an actual Solution.
Your desperate, degenerate, and unmanly inner cowardice and lack of revolt against widespread and persistent wrong had bred this pathetic state (I mean that both as your internal psychological state and as your political state) upon you, and it is one you richly and undeniably deserve.
And one that you will continue to deserve until you stand up again as Free Men and Free Women.
This nation and this world will not be “fixed” by Trump or Clinton or Johnson, or by any of your “elected officials.” It never has been and it never will be.
It will be fixed by you, if it can be fixed at all. Or put another way to the degree it can be fixed at all, by human effort – it will not be fixed by your “leaders.” For that requires no effort and no risk on your part.
Indeed the very idea that you so desperately “need” your leaders to fix things for you is the very reason you are so gutless, ineffectual, and degenerate in the first place.
Indeed if you only had the man-balls to revolt against the very idea that you need to be led and that someone in authority must act in your absent stead then you wouldn’t need to revolt against that idea, but since you lack the man-balls to revolt against that idea the one thing you most desperately need (personal courage) is beyond your effective reach.
See, it always works that way with cowardice (for that is the very nature of cowardice)…
With courage, though, it just works.
I know you don’t get that, but you sure as hell need to. And pretty damned quick too.
So as this election approaches instead of merely electing something different, or, God forbid, yet another carious version of the same, how about you trying to be something different, and eschewing the same.
That would be really, really helpful. For once.
You know, you being the solution that you spend so much time whining and bitching and wishing that someone else would be… for you.
Like a real man or woman.
Like an Actual American.
