The Ton voted today. Took advantage of the early voting option. I have property in 3 county’s so I need a head start on the voting circus. I walked in, rattled off some minor, easy to obtain personal information, voted for Trump and walked the fuck out…. sort of.
I didn’t pull the R level to cast a straight Republican down ballot ticket, Fuck those fuckers. They haven’t earned my vote. Neither party has but a vote for Trump is a vote to kick the hornets nest and well that’s worth voting for
I did scroll through the down ballot elections. If I saw a woman running for some office I went ahead and voted for her male opponent. Mostly to amuse myself. I doubt it makes a difference.
It’s been years since I voted in a federal election. Not since Jesse Helms retired. I use to vote in the county and state level elections but the men I knew and respected at that level have all aged out.
I can’t recall ever voting in a federal election but not in the local runs. Strange days.
Voting is an exercise in power, when you vote you are forcing your will on to others. Politely at 1st, but the government will turn it’s guns onto anyone who does not submit themselves to the laws and political authority of the election winners. Like most of civilzation, voting is eye wash. An illusion of politeness, backed up by raw power and naked force.
The government will allow you to exercise power via voting if you can’t read or write, if you don’t have a way of proving who you are, where you live etc and here in NC, they allow handicap folks to vote curb side from their cars.
Insanity to me. How can you be aware of what is going on politically if your body is so crippled you can’t walk into the polling place? How can you be allowed to exercise power over your “fellow citzens” If you can’t prove you are a citzens? Or understand what is a stake?
The whole system is flawed. Long term, there is no political solution, there is no restoring the Constitution or the Republic. There is only preparing for the end and trying to figure out what’s next
