Being the public isn't easy. We the public get screwed and then blamed for everything. The most common blame we the public get issued on us is voting. The people didn't get out to vote so now we have a republican house and senate. This is confusing since regardless of who votes, the republicans are going to win no matter what. They have made it so that although they have a 5% approval rating, because only their district votes are counted, they stay in power. How is that the publics fault? It's not our fault our votes don't count. Not to mention the voter suppression laws requiring people to have state ID as well as the ending of early voting and voter laws to compliment the legal cheating of voters. Now there is the voting purge accusing people who have the same name of voting twice regardless of the fact that the social security numbers don't match. Yeah but with all this it's still the public's fault. This is a common strategy of blame the victim. Progressives are good for this. It becomes confusing. We are told by progressives to get out and vote then in the same sentence we are informed that our votes don't count. The public is not stupid. We know we're being screwed. We know that elections are for the most part rigged. This crap I just mentioned is completely legal. It's just the tip of the iceberg. This is just the slop that spills out of the pan. The stuff they can't hide. I really don't think that this country is held together by a lousy vote by the people. Since when have what the people wanted ever mattered? None of the decisions that are made are made due to humanitarian reasons. Gas prices didn't fall because there was too much of a burden put on we the public. No one came forward saying that we lowered prices at the pump to help you people. In fact, the news is trying to make us feel guilty about falling gas prices by explaining how these poor oil companies are loosing money. Boo hoo! Where was the oil company's feelings for the last decade and a half? I don't see them feeling sorry for us. From mortgages to credit to student loans, the underlying reason for anything the public gains has to do with the corporation. The public is nothing more than a resource to be exploited for the benefit of powerful. Indeed we are taught to believe this is good. Indeed we are brainwashed to serve the corporate good putting ourselves last. We live a life of guilt. We constantly have to owe money to this company and that company. Phone bills, rent, mortgage, electric bills, education bills and the list goes on. We live our lives feeling like we owe and when you owe, it implies guilt. The words YOU OWE A DEBT usually precede something that indicates you're being ungrateful. Let's face reality, if there were solutions that gave us free unlimited energy and a huge decrease need for money, how likely would we be to have this luxury since we the people owe so much as it is? We are indebted to pay since we owe. Since this is so, it makes sense that we the people are getting screwed in the ballot box. After all, what right do we have to pick our public leaders when we are in fact the ones who OWE. Our leadership doesn't feel like it owes us, with the exception of a few. Yes we are the victims being blamed. We don't vote because we haven't earned the right since our votes dont count because we didn't pay our bills so therefore we OWE and we don't count. Instead we are being counted. We are indentured servants with no rights until we pay off our debt. Unless and until we pay back what you owe, we will never have democracy since in the minds of our political corporate economy, we are the ones screwing them. They who gave us electric, education, cars, homes and everything else. We are ingrates who should be punished and we are punished by a lifetime of guilt, rigged elections and ownership of our lives through debt, malnutrition, greed, need and unrest. But hey things could be worse.
