I have a rule of thumb. Whatever the government says to do, I am going to do the opposite. Why? Because I have no reason to believe the United States government cares about its citizens. Thus, when Democrats or Republicans come out of the woodwork to tell the American people to ignore Jill Stein and Gary Johnson, that is the best reason in the world is start looking into third parties.
F$%# The Establishment
Seriously, the nerve! The nerve of career politicians telling the American people how they should vote. Really?
What about the thousands locked up in prison so that the prison-industrial complex can make billions off of modern day slavery? What about the subsidies that are given to special interests at the expense of the average American? How about the excessive taxation that is used to lavish government and government employees with salaries complete with life time pensions? Wars being fought in the name of private enterprise; terrorism being used as an excuse to seize rights; mass surveillance; the list goes on and on.
But we are suppose to forgive these things, right? We are supposed to forget that our government is filled with self-serving, treasonous bureaucrats who are in the pocket of some special interest. We often refer to politicians as whores, but I believe this does injustice to real prostitutes. After all, real prostitutes are quite clear about who and what they are – there is no deception involved. Politicians, on the other hand, are mercenaries of propaganda! They will push whatever will get them votes. They will champion whatever is the status quo. They will praise whatever gives them more power and esteem. The American people mean little to this gilded class of talentless bureaucrats. After all, it isn’t their money being squandered on boondoggles.
My hope is that all my fellow millennials vote third party. Why? Well, look at the world around you. Look at our polluted oceans, collapsing infrastructure, rising deficits, outrageous taxation, zeroing prospects, slumping economics, failing public schools, menacing world, and haphazard innovation. Look at the handy work of our predecessors and ask if you want more of the same. Literally everything, and I mean everything, that is wrong with the world, is their fault! It is they who thought it was a great idea to go to Afghanistan and Iraq, only to radicalize some Muslims. It was they who thought it was a great idea to strap debt to 18 years that they will have to spend a lifetime paying back. Seriously, what sick twisted person would use young people as bond servants?
Our entire system is built on a ponzi-like scheme that rewards dedication to adherence to the status quo at the expense of our entire society. It is for this reason that I find it highly offensive that any of these poor excuses for leaders have the nerve to tell us millennials anything. We have seen their handy work. We are not impressed.
