America is Closed for the Season! Hope to See You Soon!

America is Closed for the Season! Hope to See You Soon!

image(By Baxie) Sorry folks. America’s closed. The moose outside should have told you. There used to be a time when I was passionately interested in politics. I would have regular political discussions. I would extol my beliefs on others. I would blame the world’s problems on opposing view points. I would vote in elections. I would bitterly criticize those who did not share my opinion. In short, I was kind of a jerk.

Over the years, I have come to the conclusion that politics (and politicians) are predominantly full of crap. I’m not just talking about some politicians. I’m talking about all politicians. Democrats and Republicans. Frankly there hasn’t been a decent political party in America since the Whigs. And they were assholes too.

Look at the government shut down for example. The Democrats blame the Republicans. The Republicans blame the Democrats. I blame everybody. I also blame the people who believed that somehow the idiots that got us into this mess are somehow intelligent enough to get us out of it. They are not. Not to sound like a cynic, but politicians are not out to solve problems. Their primary function is to stay in power and to enjoy all the many spoils and benefits that US government provides.

A politician would rather lose a limb or the use of his spine (assuming that he or she had one) than lose their seat in election. Elections are then Chrystal Meth of the political world. Every politician craves its effects. Every politician goes through withdrawals when they lose their power. It’s an addiction. And like every addict a politician is only in it for himself and for their suppliers–also known as a their campaign contributors. Without the money then there is no campaign. There is no election. And there is no power.

Every politician has a message of hope. Every politician cares about working families. Every politician cares about everything. But they don’t. Because what they really care about is, “Can I stay in office? And how much will it cost?” In other words, all politics is compromised. Everybody is serving a master. Nobody can work together. Nobody offers their own opinion. Nobody acknowledges the opinions of others. Nobody is willing to compromise for the benefit of the country.

If they were interested in those things, you would not only have a more effective result, you would have a better class of human being willing to enter into the political area. Of course, that won’t happen. Intelligent people know better. Politicians are motivated by campaigns and committee assignments. Simply put they don’t really give a shit about your problems. They have their own bullshit to deal with.

So enjoy the inconvenience of the government shut down. I’m sure that Ive got it all wrong. I’m sure that some politician, some day will prove me wrong. Until that happens I’ll just sit here and hold my breath.
