    Hello L.A. --- I don't believe you actually READ my post, & I understand, that it is very long -- & so forth. But your final say is that we ALL have one vote, even the filthy rich, & so we should all just relax & go smoke a joint, & all will be OK. BUT that is not being a "responsible" citizen -- IF you believe in the concept of voting at all. For the rich are (every day) trying to figure out DOZENS of ways to PREVENT you from Voting.

    In many places, the voting line is so long, you better pack a lunch & bring a thermos. I have waited in the snow for 3 hours to vote, & I saw women have to leave & go home, because their child was getting antsy & hungry. I have seen elderly people have to leave after standing in line for 2 or 3 hours, because their poor old bones could not take standing up that long. THAT ALL was due to some Republican's idea to SHUT DOWN some of the polling places, so thousands more people would have to vote at one place. Hence, making the lines twice as long as usual.

    The RICH can manipulate the game, & control many factors, so it is NOT just one person, one vote. As I explained in my previous article, how the GOP are capable of MURDERING their political opponents, which is SERIOUS "rigging" of elections, & HOW DOES YOUR ONE VOTE COUNT, when the 1% can just kill off your chosen Senator or Governor? There are many examples, but JFK & RFK are just 2 prime examples of DELIBERATE MURDER for political gain.

    In my last article, I showed the PROOF that the John Birch Society was definitely involved in JFK's murder -- they printed the WANTED FOR TREASON poster that was distributed all over Dallas on Nov 22, 1963 --- and the "Welcome Mr. Kennedy -- to Dallas" (headline) in the Dallas Newspaper. The propaganda arm of the Birch Society extended all the way to Catholic Churches, where even the Priest may be a Bircher. People like Jerry Falwell & Oral Roberts were thumping their Bible & preaching the Gospel of Birchdom, with emphasis on "dumb". Also, what could the Birch Society GAIN by JFK's murder? Well, for one thing they could prevent a Democrat from being the President, & thus making it easier for a Republican (who could easily be bribed or controlled) to be in office. Also, Barry Goldwater (on the Birch National Council) could then become the President & push forth all the "wish list" of Republican desires.

    They definitely would not even come close to the desires of the ordinary American, or member of the Democratic Party. The GOP want to destroy Democracy, (govt of, by, & for the People) --- Instead, they want an Oligarchy --- Govt of the rich & the industrialist, the War Machine, & a more FASCIST leadership style. They love people like the Ku Klux Klan, & the neo-Nazi's who lurk behind the scenes at a John Birch rally. There was one Republican candidate for President a few yrs ago, (David Duke) who was in the KKK, & may have also been a neo-Nazi. It just goes to show you the kind of people attracted to the Republican Party. -- Guys in the NRA, & blow up bldgs for a hobby, & cover themselves with lots of colorful tattoos, & people who like to wear sheets, with a flaming cross at their rallies, while the Grand Dragon stands at the podium, pounding on his Bible, with a Gun laying on top. Oh, HAPPY DAYS ! There are days when I WISH that the Founding Fathers could be out "slumming" & traveling across the modern America that they risked their lives, their fortunes, & their sacred honor for. -------- ---- What would THEY think? ---- Would they do it all over again,--- if they KNEW it would only come to THIS?

    Eternal....what I wrote means that all of us have 1 vote..rich or poor. Which means if people just voted their own interests money is irrelevant. The last time I looked just 51 percent rules in national elections...thats my point. You give me 1000 examples of how the rich manipulate with money...and I say 1 person...1 vote. It cant be the rich, 99 percent clearly is the majority...so whats the problem???? Our citizenry is the problem. Our citizenry are already smoking a joint and relaxing...this is why the 1 percent rules....we allow it. Do you not understand that? US Citizens have become experts at pointing outward....start looking inwards WHEN WILL THE IDIOTIC PUBLIC AWAKEN???

    I am sorry, but I don't know how to understand what you are really saying. IF 2 guys were in a fight, and one has only his bare hands, and the other one had a gun and a knife, and 2 pit bulls & a poison python by his side, --- which one do YOU think would win? The regular people do not have enough money to keep their car running to even drive to the polls. The rich guys fly in on a private jet, drinking champagne all the way, and have the staff bring him a recliner to sit on while he studies his ballot & marks his choice. But previously, he was making out a donation check for $500,000 to support his favorite candidate. While he made a (wink wink) deal with them, what HE has to do to EARN that donation. The WORLD revolves around MONEY, so the Rich people will WIN 99% of the time,--- so that out numbers the 99% of people who have NO money. It is NOT that WE LET THEM WIN.

    The only way to even the odds, is to resort to the days of the Wild West, where people all carry a gun, even women & children & a few poodles. (Colt made all men equal). ---- But darn it, I can't find anyplace to keep my horse & saddle. In my little apt on the 9th floor of Piney Flats Flop House, so there goes my one horse advantage. But heck, its only a one horse town anyway.

    Now next week, I'm going to hit it rich. I am entering my horse in the County horse races. Please bet on him. (His Name is "Tumblin' Toadstool" ) He had a little accident when just a colt, and fell over a cliff. But Doc says with a little exercise, maybe he can stay out of the coma long enough to eat from the haystack.
    Well, maybe next time.... All us poor folk still have dreams --- You see, it's all EQUAL here in Life. It is one person, one vote.---Yep, cuz The Bible told me so.....

    The 2 guys fighting are equal...but there is a third guy...the guy who offered the weapons. The first two guys are the citizenry...the third guy is the ruler..but among them are only 3 votes. If the 2 guys are somewhat intelligent. ...they beat the third guy.....but one of them sold out... DDo you get it??? Our fault

    No, I still don't get it. People in a cage, have NO POWER over their oppressor. We can do only what the rich fat cats ALLOW us to do. Anyday now, they will all decide they don't NEED to give us the Right to Vote, anymore, and they KNOW we can't do ONE THING to stop them. They rule the roost, they control the police depts, & they own the Supreme Court. Some of them even CONTROL the Media, especially right-wing media, which only feeds them the right-wing VIEW POINT, 24/7 for over 30 years. They can BUY elections, just like Geo W Bush in 2000, when his election hung by a thread in Florida, (just coincidentally run by his own brother, Governor Jeb Bush). And dear old Jebbie made sure the ballot count could never reach the finish line. You see, Georgie HAD TO WIN that election, because the right wing preachers had SAID, right out loud, in church & on broadcast TV -- that GOD wanted George "W" Bush to be the President.

    And who could possibly argue with God Himself? So even if you had to RIG the election, & disgrace & subvert the US electoral system, & put an ex-druggie crook into the White House, it was A-OK, since "God obviously wanted Georgie W to be elected" (due to impending WAR planned for 15 yrs by the PNAC whereby the United States was going to wage global warfare to STEAL OIL out of many nations, & to dominate fossil fuels production for another century.

    This PNAC group is mostly (if not all) run by conservative right-wing Republicans, who have no spirituality or morality or even human decency. Their greedy & often criminal activities will surely condemn them to Hell, but of course they don't REALLY believe in God, or they'd be scared shitless of divine punishment.

    No Eternal...we have to own it. We imprisoned ourselves. The cage to which you refer to is our brains. People must accept accountability. I'm speaking about us..The gluttonous Pig.. The government was created only to protect our rights..not to feed us, baby us ...nor any other reason.
    It was our responsibility to make sure this happened through the election process. Life isn't fair. We are guaranteed zero on this meaningless little planet we float around on....

    As I've said...we want the Kardashians,,, you and I may never on this issue...but take a look around and tell me what you see.

    Simple math....any number multiplied by zero (our efforts) equals zero....

    L.A. I guess "eternal" points to the corruption in the voting process; most of the candidates are already poisoned by bribery money coming from the 1%; we are talking about billions to buy their way in. Thus your and my vote really does not matter; after the election the candidates have to fulfill all the wishes of the money providers; which is likely not in favor for us the not so wealthy people.

    Corruption exists because we allow to exist. Nothing that is truly not tolerated can exist. These politicians aren't from another galaxy...they were born here, educated and currently live among us . Why is this not such a problem in Germany, Frane or England???

    They can run for office as they choose. ..but we place them there.

    Eternal

    As I type this out Im sitting in my brand new Freightliner cascadia, waiting on a load. I have my bed...raider blanket and pillow, ice chest full of goodies...with my heater on. Life is good today...for I five years ago sat in the hole (disciplinary seg.) no window, no sun, no contact with anyone) life is good. I have gratitude for the little things. I have adjusted well to these gluttonous values my neighbors have come to embrace.

    I don't know much. I can barely type, text, and use a computer. ..but im here today having a conversation with you all in this forum....yes..life is good

    Happy Thanksgiving LA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Life is good or much better.

    Now, even you can get a body camera to legally record anybody attacking you,.............even the police. It is by Supreme Court decision that private citizenry can record all they want with pictures and audio on any police activity. You just can't intimidate or prevent a Police Officer from doing his/her job. It's been law now, so if that officer tells you to turn off that camera, by law you do not have to, but you do have to get out of his/her way in order for police to conduct their job. Celebrate Christmas with asking Santa for a new Body Camera. It's the new fashion statement, which anybody who is anybody will have one, or two, or three............. I'm investing in companies that manufacture these products, their stock is going to sky rocket.

    I read some where that gaining freedom is a very long and difficult journey and once achieved it is even more difficult to maintain it. When you have a nation such as ours with so much stock placed on individual liberties that it soon becomes a place where one mans freedom comes at the expense of another, it now becomes imperative that the citizens take seriously the right ,not the privilege, to vote, and to not use their vote as weapon , so many voters vote just on one issue, or straight along party lines regardless of the issues at stake, it sometimes become more important to these voters to elect a particular party to maintain the power structure rather then what's best for the country, this why we now have a permanent political elitist society in Washington ,DC and its surrounding neighborhoods, and that group is comprised of members of the two major political parties, this is what must be eliminated, I have always advocated for term limits, this would go a long way to assist in breaking the grid lock in Congress, two terms you are done , regardless of the length of the term.. I don't believe for one second that either Party is in it for the benefit of the citizens alone.

    Back to the topic of this thread...We can discuss term limits and political corruption in countless other threads.

    Tamir Rice was shot within seconds of cops arriving on the scene and then they just watched him die without even attempting to administer First Aid. It took an off duty FBI agent to come over and administer the First Aid as the cops sat and watched Tamir gasp for breath and die before their eyes. Were those cops worried that he also had a BB bomb vest on his body, as well? That dying twelve year old must have looked really scary to them.

    The cop who shot Tamir belongs in jail. I'm so tired of this shoot first mentality so many of our cops have. The video clearly shows Tamir was not pointing the gun at those cops and it makes me sick that they just murdered a damn child because they could. He was posing no threat to society. He wasn't holding another child hostage with his BB gun. A BB gun, mind you, that millions of our white children have and play with on a daily basis. The only difference is those white kids don't tend to get killed by overzealous cops for holding one.

    We have to have a change of conciseness in this country and stop treating black children like they are the enemy. They are citizens of this great country and deserve to be treated as such. They don't deserve to get killed for no damn reason at all. I've grown quite tired of watching white cops kill our black youth. I've also grown quite tired of hearing and reading testimonials of white cops justifying these baseless murders because they have to back up their brethren no matter what. It has to stop and stop now.

    Jared, I can't agree more; I've said my thing in a few words many times; I do not need a long epistel to explain these things.

    The people I blame for this misfortunate shooting by the police with a child holding a look-a-like gun is his parents or guardians. Who in their right mind would allow a child to wander around public with a gun looking like the real thing. Who in their right mind would not instruct or demonstrate to this child you do not take a toy like this into public. If the child took this to school he would have been suspended. The people responsible for this child knows who is at fault and in their minds they know they cannot blame the police. A right parent or guardian would have removed and destroyed this toy not allowing the child to have access to it.

    He was in the goddamn park. His parents didn't shoot him.....THE POLICE DID.
    What does a twelve year old know? He's at the park imagining cowboys and indians....and in 2 seconds,,,, he's dead

    You sir.....are a prime candidate for the NUREMBERG TRIALS
