I Vote 2006

Is anyone going to vote in the “off-year” congressional elections in 2006? If so, why? Nothing is going to change at the Federal level; at least changes for the “good of all” aren’t going to happen.

Think for a minute and ask your self why anyone would want to be a member of the House of Representatives or Senate. It all boils down to money. Do a little online research and see for yourself what these rectums get in compensation for screwing up the lives of middle-class Americans. It is outrageous, to say the least. And when they finally retire from the hallowed halls with pats on the back from their peers and the corporations that they represented, they get a lifetime of perks, including the best medical care that our tax money can buy. No deductibles to pay; no limit to the amount of money that can be pulled from the treasury to keep them and theirs healthy and pretty. It is all about money.

They may fool you into thinking that they can change things and make them better for you, their beloved constituents, but they and their political, corporate, and yes, foreign governments, are in for the flow of dollars that will keep them happy for years to come. No, I take that back. The corporations and outlanders are never happy for very long. There is always another piece of pie that they seem to need, and are willing to purchase as many lawmakers as it takes to get what they want.

Does any politician have a workable plan to justly remove us from the unjust war in Iraq? No! Does any office seeker have a workable plan to secure our borders and make us a little safer from terrorists? No! Does any of these “public servant” wannabes have a workable plan to make our nation energy independent? No! The only plan that they have—or need, for that matter—is to become status flaunting servants of the middle class. I would laugh but it is hard to do while I’m puking.

Think about it and do what I’m going to do; vote with your butt. Yes, I’m going to sit at home on my butt and watch something on “Animal Planet” or maybe “Spongebob” instead of doing my civic duty and voting for one of these anuses. I’m a liberal and have always voted democratic, but no more. I shall remain a liberal, but I will never go to the polls to vote for anyone again. Even if I run for office, I won’t vote. I will be watching Spongebob and Patrick annoy Squidward.
