Americans should not be able to vote.

In America, we praise democracy. We think of it as the ideal form of government. If you aren’t sure what a democracy is, here you go: Democracy is a relativistic form of government which allows the majority to decide what’s right or wrong. Of course, we mask this relativism by saying that we have a constitution which protects the minority. However, the constitution is routinely violated all the time. The constitution does have it’s flaws, such as allowing theft and violation of property rights through taxation. But either way, it still has a lot of good in it. No one seems to care about the constitution anymore though. I wonder why. Perhaps this has something to do with it: “Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women. When it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it.” (Justice Learned Hand)

People don’t want the liberty that the constitution protects, they want material equality. “Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.” (Friedman) The real issue is the lack of desire for liberty. That is why the constitution will eventually dissolve into nothing but a meaningless piece of paper.

But that actually isn’t my point. As much as I despise the thought of democracy, if people were actually somewhat intelligent, people could actually vote to uphold principles. But here’s the point of this post: The vast majority of Americans are stupid, complacent, ignorant, and easy manipulated tools. Americans vote based on the potential material benefits, what the media tells them, and apparently by skin color.

You don’t believe me? Here are some conversations I’ve had in the last couple of weeks:

Conversation 1-

ME: So who are you going to support this year?

Idiot: I’m going to vote for Barrack Obama.

ME: Oh……why? He’s possibly the worst candidate I’ve ever seen…

Idiot: Yea, but he’s black. I think that having a black president would finally put an end to racial discrimination in America.

ME: So you’re going to vote for someone based on his skin color to end racial discrimination?

Idiot: Yea

Conversation 2-

Retard: So I hear you’re going into political science?

ME: Mmmmhm…

Retard: Who are you going to vote for?

ME: Well…I supported Ron Paul, but now I’m not sure…Maybe Bob Barr. How about you?

Retard: Well, I liked Hilary, so now I don’t know. I would vote for Obama because he would probably lower our taxes…but I don’t know how I feel about having a muslim for a president.

ME: Oh……

Conversation 3-

ME: So who do you support this year?

Tool: Well, I thought about McCain, but I don’t know because he’s too old I think. I really don’t like the fact that Obama is a muslim though, and I really don’t like his pastor. I don’t think America is ready for a black president either.

ME: Did you like Hilary?

Tool: No. I wouldn’t vote for a woman. I don’t think they are stable enough to lead a country.

ME: Agreed.

Tool: Yea, So I’ll probably vote for Nader because he will lower taxes the most I think.

ME: You do that…

Okay. These are real conversations. They aren’t conversations with kids either. The youngest person was 22. The oldest person was 54. These are the people that are voting on issues that affect our lives. I don’t want these people to have any say of what happens to MY money and MY property.

This is proof that democracy=fail.

Mentally retarded or teenage girl?

I lost hope in America long ago. However, I just recieved a friend request on Facebook from some random girl, so naturally I accepted it. After about 3 seconds, I looked at her personal information. It went something like this:

Personal Info

Activities:
Interests:
Favorite Music:
Favorite TV Shows:
Favorite Movies:
Favorite Books:

Notice how besides the given Facebook categories, almost every word is spelled wrong. Out of 26 real words that she typed, 6 words were completely wrong. She used 3 words that are popular slang words typically only used by jocks, retards, 2nd graders, and well….girls.

Since I am not a complete jackass, I won’t give Ashley’s full name. After taking a look at her profile, I looked at a few more. Here’s another worth looking at:

Personal Info

Activities:
Interests:
Favorite Music:
Favorite TV Shows:
Favorite Movies:
Favorite Books:

Not quite as bad, but still disappointing. Notice the patterns if you would. The “Activities” and “Interests” usually are similarly heart-breaking. Sports, partying, texting, idking, and booyz are usually part of the mixture. When texting becomes a noted activity or interest, a red flag should go up right away. The use of “umm….” is also rather disturbing. That is a word that bad public speakers use when they are nervous. I use the word often when speaking. However, the glory of typing is that you can think BEFORE you give your thoughts. Using “umm..” as a filler while typing isn’t cute, it’s basically you saying: “hey booooyz, i’m such an idiot, please rape me 😀 lol”.

Notice the music. These people don’t just have a type of music they listen to, they like everything. Liking everything just means you don’t have any preference. Usually rap or hip-hop are in there, instantly showing how dumb they are, accompanied by the genre that hates rap: Country. “I like to listen to rap which is mumbling based on the streets, but at the same time I like to feel like a inbred, redneck, racist that supports out troops!” I’ll assume that’s what these people think.

Now, television shows: “Laguna Beach, next”, and “I dont watch much TV…just mtv”……..enough said.

Favorite Movies: “OMG alote…” and “I LOVE MOVIES!!..basically anything”. Again, 2 made-up words and no preference.

Next, is the category of “Favorite Books”. This one is my favorite. Please look at their answers. “NONE…” and “books?!?!?”. Well, I’m glad that they do not know what books are. It’s not like they are old enough to read yet. OH!!, Wait! What’s that? They graduate high school in 1 year?? That’s right. Those of you who think that it’s not big deal because they are young, you’re wrong. Both of these girls drive cars. They are at the point where they should be practicing cooking and cleaning. Age is no excuse for this.

This is supposed to be a political blog, so I should probably tie this into politics. The point of this article was to show the current condition of our youth. I picked girls just for fun, but guys are not any better. Our youth are borderline retarded, and yet in 1-2 years, these are the people that will be voting. My point of this rant is this: American democracy has failed! At least little Iraqi terrorists know enough to believe in SOMETHING. American youth will be and are already the destruction of this nation.

Next, I will be writing about an experience I had at work today talking with men and women in their 40s. It will be further proof that democracy has failed.
