To summarize a long reply I sent to a mailing list message ranting about the evils of the Obama administration:
Don’t get me wrong. I’m no more an Obama supporter than I was a Bush supporter. The game is rigged, folks. Wake up and stop wasting your energy railing against the current President or passing around partisan screeds. Take off your blinders and notice that both parties have one thing in common that should frighten any thinking adult: their continued existence requires that you actively participate in the continued erosion of your own freedom. The only way we’ll return to a more rational world, where the freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution and the limits placed on government are actually adhered to, is to actively campaign to throw the bums out. Get rid of every incumbent. Refuse to vote for anybody who claims membership in any of the major political parties. Hell, get rid of party politics altogether.
Yes, I know. I’m asking too much. I’m not expecting it to happen. But I’d just like you to know that until we get rid of the parties, all your ranting and carrying on is just pissing into the wind.
So go ahead with your tribal drum beating. But please leave me out of it.
