Hmm. Guess it's been obvious for a while that I am completely burned out on political blogging, yeah?
Because in order to take it to the next level and become a "real activist" as I see it, might make some people very dear to me vulnerable. Also, it's all I can do to avoid the idiocy so prevalent in the corporate funded mainstream media's attempts to dominate, control, anesthetize and profit from as many Americans as possible.
There are so many stupid people in this country that the corporate interests are winning big. Many Americans are just ignorant and I have no problem with ignorance. Stupidity, however, gets on my last fucking nerve. There is a difference.
The politicians for the most part are only about winning their next election and they need money to run in it and the corporate interests provide those funds.
The voters are apathetic because they look at the self-interested politicians and wonder why the politicians never do anything for them or theirs. There are a few national politicians that give me hope that the broken political system can occasionally work for the constituents (umm, thats us, if you're wondering.)
Frankly, I dunno what it's going to take for us Americans to change our fucked up political system but my biggest hope lies in the fact that there are so many more of us than there are of the selfish, greedy fucking fucks that control the system right now because they have more money than we do. I've known for years that money wouldn't change things for most of us. It's not money that we need to change this broken system, it's the confidence that we CAN do it, and standing together in order TO do it. Because the castles can be stormed and you can bet your asses that the 1% are scared shitless of that. As well they should be.
