The 507 Effect – Finally! Election Day!


Finally!  It’s election day!  And we shall soon know who it is we’ll despise in a couple of years.  As I posted earlier this week, I won’t be voting this year.  The way I see it, by not voting, I am reserving my right to bitch and complain about the failures of whoever is elected.  Because let’s get one thing straight here folks.  Whoever is elected is going to be a failure in our eyes.  Only to the super elite 1% of this planet will this next president seem like a champion.  Why do I say that?  Because the last 8 years have set us back so far that no matter who “wins” today, they will be bound to a course that was set before they took command of the oval office.  A course that try as they may, they can not alter.
The corporate cronies have robbed America blind.  Bush & the boys have fucked every single institution that made America a great nation.  To some it seems like the mistakes of an idiot administration, mistakes that could be righted by an Obama Administration.  But these tragedies of the last 8 years were not mistakes.  Each great tragedy, 9-11, Afghanistan, Iraq, New Orleans, the stock market, all of these tragedies led to a decrease in civil rights and a slight shift toward a Fascist police state.  If you asked someone who was alive in the the 60s civil right movement what they thought of today, they would say that we have moved backward just as much as we have moved forward.
“Moved back as much as we’ve moved forward?! But a ‘black’ man might be president!” you might be saying.  But that doesn’t really matter, that is just window dressing for the tourists.  The truth is that civil rights for people of all races and sexes have been scaled back by the bush administration.  And if there are any more environmental, military, economic, or terrorist disasters, we stand on the brink of total police state, no matter who the president is, Obama or McCain.
So I won’t be voting, because the outcome of this election was decided long ago.  But if you must go out and vote, for God’s sake vote for the “black” guy!
