03/28/2021 The New Apathy Party   Leave a comment

I mentioned in yesterday’s post that maybe we should start a third political party in this country. Nothing as stupid as Ross Perot and his “United We Stand” group or the ever-so tedious “Tea Party” group. If the Apathy Party is to be taken seriously they will need specific types of candidates. Those who have no political axe to grind, no great love for politicians in general, and people who’ve stopped voting in disgust. People with a big enough following of like minded, pissed off, and apathetic citizens would probably out number both the Democratic and Republican parties at the polls.

I realize that fighting the current system is almost an impossibility but if a landslide victory is big enough it could change things forever in this country. Over the course of a few election cycles the Apathetic’s could run for every office available, down to the lowest common denominater. From dog catchers to presidential candidates. If they get on the ballot there should be more than enough apathetic voters to sweep them into office. Then our presidential candidate would also be swept into office to begin getting the court systems and political systems doing what they were meant to do by the founding fathers. The Media would automatically fall into line when it’s determined that the apathetic population will abandon any outlet that tries to regress to an unacceptable position.

Big Media and Big Business are as we all know the same beast but with two heads. The effects of an apathetic majority would naturally begin to effect their advertising revenues as well as their retail profits. They wouldn’t hesitate to abandon any politicians that couldn’t keep their coffers full. They’re all about the effing Benjamins after all.

I need to give this entire approach a little more thought. I think I’m starting to get excited . . . I’d call that getting a political woodie.
