Representatives for the Messiah™ called last evening on my cell phone. During dinner. I was, needless to say, NOT happy. I explained to the Messiah™'s
rep that I did not plan on voting this election...which galled him, simply galled him.
Be afraid, be very afraid.
I am an independent voter. I usually vote Republican, but after the last election, I have come to realize that I am no longer necessary to the Republican Party - in fact, the Republican Party doesn't want to have anything to do with me, since I am a vile and fundamentalist type of religious fanatic...which they are desperately trying to rid themselves of...the way the Republican Party has decided to rid themselves of Israel and all those pesky Jew-types - and since I dropped party affiliation more than ten years ago, I have become more or less antipolitical. Antipolitical in my view that problems, whether financial or societal, can and should be solved with political implementations. I simply see this as a resignation of personal responsibilities. So this year, my grande acte of civil disobedience will be to not vote. Nor will I encourage anyone else to vote, either.
Sounds positively rebellious, doesn't it. Sounds anti-social, undemocratic and borderline criminal. By Golly, if she can not vote, then possibly OTHERS might be convinced not to do the same~!
Yes, that is the long and the short of it. But I am convinced of this: No matter if the Messiah™ wins the Democratic nomination, or whether She-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named™ does, it simply doesn't matter anymore. If the Republican wins the White House, or the Messiah™ or the Antichrist™ wins... the national effect will be exactly the same - complete and utter polarization. We are a nation once again at war with ourself. And yes, that is, technically speaking, a grammatical error, but when one nation is rent into two factions, then it is the same as dividing a single man in half...neither half can survive.
As it was with the Civil War, things go pleasantly on about the countryside, and the potshots we take are mostly without any casualties. I think a good project for me is to look from the 1820s to the outbreak of Civil War. That would be the same time-frame as the 1960s to the present.
On the other hand, our nation was growing at an incredible pace, and our enemies tended to be Injuns...and most folk didn't give a damn about slavery or slaves in general.
So that was a pointless and suckworthy endeavor for a few minutes. Our situation is completely different. We have two radically different mindsets, altogether. This is going to be an ugly, personalized war of vendettas and personal payback, writ large.
I believe that this next war will be without uniforms, and fought on an individual and guerrilla level. An eating away at the middle our our nation from the cities, full of anarchists, and universities, filled with Marxists, against the general population. I don't want to think about it, but it is happening now, an it will get progressively worse. We are in for a long, bloody battle.
Europe, unlike America, will surrender to the terrorists within her midst. There are no real armies in Europe, but we will fight. One side, the side in power, with the most seats, will use the law and the tax code to wage war on one side, while the other side will withdraw from the discourse, looking to protect its own interests, and looking for a retreat from all the hostile rhetoric. Maybe, one side will refuse to take sides, and only after being forced, will fight for its survival.
Ugggh. It gives me a headache.
