Feeling Left Out

November 12, 2018

Of a representative democracy

No one represents me, boo hoo

Not even close, I want meritocracy

No vote required including you too

 

 

Each person doing what they enjoy

What else would you rather want

As if doing it for free without employ

There’s absolutely no reason we can’t

 

 

Beware the phrase *”we the people” please

For it does not include you you you or I

Consider who gets away with legalese

Pay attention to the lawmakers, it’s a lie

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

– Dr Wayne Dyer

 

 

“In Order to form a more perfect Union”

For whom? It certainly is not the people.

It is for those who write it down or choose to erase it.

Free health care, lifelong pensions, etc.

Insure domestic Tranquility.

How are they going to do that, more stormtroopers? How about the guy walking down the street or driving his car is disproportionately assaulted or killed for BWBB: being, while being black.

Where is his Tranquility?

Provide for the common defence.

That’s quite the ruse, for invading sovereign nations and stealing their shit.

Promote the general Welfare

Definition interlude.

Welfare : the state of being happy, healthy, or successful.

Seems more like discontent is promoted.

“Cause that’s all you ever hear about in this country. It’s our differences. That’s all the media and the politicians are ever talking about–the things that separate us, things that make us different from one another. 

That’s the way the ruling class operates in any society. They try to divide the rest of the people. They keep the lower and the middle classes fighting with each other so that they, the rich, can run off with all the fucking money!”

Fairly simple thing. Happens to work. You know? Anything different–that’s what they’re gonna talk about–race, religion, ethnic and national background, jobs, income, education, social status, sexuality, anything they can do to keep us fighting with each other, so that they can keep going to the bank!”

– George Carlin

.
Secure the Blessings of Liberty to “ourselves” and “our” Posterity.

There it is in black, against a white background.

“Establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
Section 8

1: The Congress shall have Power

(Out of context, but you get the idea)

.
“Democracy is the worst kind, I am sorry,  but it is. We get to pick our leaders..well…

What if I don’t want a leader? Where does that vote go? I do good on my own, I don’t want to be “led”. Is that freedom?”

“American Idol (Idle) was the number one show on television // those are the people picking your leaders with less insight then they put in to whether or not Rubin Stoddard should win an award. It’s dumb”

– Doug Stanhope

 

* The “we the people” perspective was inspired by Ta-Nehisi Coates book “Between the World and Me”.

People : plural : human beings making up a group or assembly or linked by a common interest

Common interest. Hmmm, having a good time traveling on the spherical spaceship we are all on.

  1. I love this. They stopped representing us a long time ago.

    • Thanks for understanding and being my most prodigious “follower”.

      My perception that a Meritocracy would work is based on experience. I do what I enjoy and the universe compensates, through my employer. Along with all the other intricacies of the cosmos.

      For years, when everyone had a bumper that read “I’d rather be…….., mine read “I’m doing what I’d rather be doing”.

      Still applies today.
