It stinks to live in the DC Metro area. Everyone here has an opinion on pretty much everything. Right disagrees with left, left disagrees with right. Honestly, if it were possible I would register as a DC (that's Don't Care). As it stands I'm a registered republican because my grandfather registered for me, and the only reason why I vote is because my wife wants me to (but I'm slowly working her towards my way of thinking)
One of the things that irritates me the most is people who dislike the electoral college. They want a pure populare vote which to me is incredible stupid. Here's why:
MTV and tons of other media outlets try and get everyone to vote. More people vote and then more of the people's voice is heard. Here's the problem. People are retarded! Do you really want an 18 year old boy voting for president? He'll probably vote for Bush to see more pics of his drunk daughters at a college frat. He might vote democrat to see what further sex scandel can take place in the white house. Should his vote matter as much as the person who really cares? Of course not! I honestly voted for John Elway to be president. You want THAT to be equal with everyone else's vote?? (shout out to Elise..how many times have you visited people's blogs today?)
I couldn't care less who wins the elections. Politicians all promise that they will change things for the better. How do they know that they can do that? The president has no impact on how the economy is doing. Congress has no impact on it. So who does? The federal reserve..you know, the people who make the money!!
To all the people who are pro-life/pro-choice. You have it all wrong. Your body, your choice? That's total bunk. The Gov't chooses what's best for you. That's what it's there for. Don't believe me? Try driving 80 in a 65 and see what that gets you. While you are at it, carry some crack. Your body right? Some people say Jesus would be pro-life. Jesus wouldn't be pro-life. He's be pro-don't have premarital sex and get pregnant dummy!
For those of you who live in the DC area. Join me in my crusade. When people start to talk politics..just zone out and play Mario Brothers in your head (Sam, this doesn't apply to you..you might never come back).

i'm down with your crusade carl! i will think mario brothers. and you don't want to know what i think of my gov't, it's really scary and conspiritorial. anywho, i like your post, i like your pov, and i will join your crusade. but i'm still voting and you should too, cuz you can't bitch if you didn't at least try to impact what you're bitching about. and i don't want tons of people whose vested interest in my country is transitory at best votes counting as much as an educated person. although we now raise the question of whether or not the electoral college can be bought. later gatorReplyDelete
yay, i gotta shout out! sadly, i've checked the blogging world about three or four times today.ReplyDelete
i will spare everyone my way too long rant about why i specifically went out of my way to not vote in the last election. but, i will say that i was offended by mtv's slogan of "vote or die". and i went to a concert last october and when i went to buy a t-shirt i ended up having an argument because the man behind the counter asked me if i was going to vote and when i said "oh, absolutley not" he berated me and asked if i wanted another four years of tyranny. i'm sorry, i thought i was there to hear music, not be bullied.
i kind of ranted, but basically, i agree with you. politics suck.
Carl, Carl, Carl... The Government chooses what's best for you???
Apparently, I'm a failure.
I think what irritates me is people who want to talk about it. I don't really care who wins or what happens.ReplyDelete
This world is not my home, I'm just a passing through..
I get annoyed with politics too--because of all the people who insist that their way is unequivocably right (I'm very impressed that I spelled that right...I think). I like to try to consider lots of options and alternatives and just because I can't come up with a better solution, doesn't mean there isn't one.ReplyDelete
So I say, don't just join the crusade, let's all go and establish our own country and figure out our own way of running things. Oh, by the way, I'm going to be in charge. :)
God bless America. ;)ReplyDelete
I agree that you shouldn't be allowed to complain if you don't vote.
And that's all I've got to say about that.
I think I laughed outloud for the first time today when I read the last line of Sammie not coming back if he were to zone out and into Mario Brothers. I have this mental picture of him in his boss's office...really think about it...it's funny!ReplyDelete
Oh and as a person who works right in the middle of all that politics stuff...I too dislike having to talk about it. I have my beliefs which I try to keep to myself (the political ones anyway) and I just zone out and think about all kinds of other things when people start talking about it. Good Call, Carl!
I think it's positive to know what's going on in the world of politics, but no one should be forced into a conversation on race, religion, politics or the great pumpkin if they don't want to talk about such things.ReplyDelete
thanx for the shout-in, cuz!
