Post-mortem



Hide the children! Quipper is about to give his post-election analysis!




Yes, it's true. I am about to give the shortest, most concise political analysis in the history of the modern world.

State/Local - liberty lost, as use of legal substances is now illegal, even though those substances are now taxed at a higher rate to fund "culture". Entitlement won, as our state constitution now mandates regular increases to the minimum wage. And we don't love the children, because we failed the gambling issue.


State/National - we have been assimilated. What my buddy Scott calls the "two headed political party" is, in actuality, the Borg. Doesn't matter who's in power, as long as THEY ARE IN POWER. 'Nuff said.






Resistance is futile? Only if we keep believing the 2-party system and big media are the only answer to better governance of the United States.



Grass roots movements should no longer involve reform of the major parties, but should lead to their disintegration.

I agree with that "disintegration" bit. That's cool.

Unfortunately, I am still running into people who are sold out religionists and they blame me for the "loss" of control.

Duuuhhh... and these are supposed to be freedom loving, individual responsibility type folks.

We're all whores. It comes down to haggling over price.

Believe me, I'm disappointed that some conservative candidates lost. But, when practically the entire Republican party moved toward the center, and the Democrats still couldn't figure out who they wanted to be, the whole thing proved to be a farce.

As long as winning is the most important thing, and governance remains irrelevant, the political system - not the governing or electoral systems - needs to be changed.

Gee, Scott, it's a shame people just aren't as smart as you think you are.

Quipper said...

Ouch! That one's gonna leave a mark, Scott.

:p

Same circus, different clowns.

Hi Rick,

I agree with your statement "But, when practically the entire Republican party moved toward the center, and the Democrats still couldn't figure out who they wanted to be, the whole thing proved to be a farce."

It is sort of what I read in a couple articles I read, which are linked within my blog post here.
