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.

I really try never to be a person who uses class-warfare tactics like so many people in this country do today.  That puts me in a definite minority as reflected by Obama’s re-election.  Everyone claims to hate negative campaigning but those same people allow it to effect their vote.  People say they hate smooth talking, insincere politicians and then vote them back into office without a second thought. I’ve finally been forced to admit that people who feel as I do and live their lives as I do are losing the battle for this country.  I see Obama’s plan working as he probably knew it would. He’s a master manipulator and uses ethnic issues and race better than most KKK members.  I understand why the “have not’s” flock to his banner because of his divisive campaigning techniques that have  convinced a majority of the country that without his government they are doomed.  I suppose I’ll now be listed as a crank or someone who is no longer in touch with the rest of the country.  That’s a label I wear proudly and always will. You may find this interesting  so read on.

"The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage."

It doesn’t take a genius to determine where this country currently is on this road-to-destruction list, is it? I’d say we’ve just crossed over into “Apathy to Dependence”.  Obama has steadily pushed, pulled, and manipulated the nation to the edge of this cliff and he’ll continues to push until we fall off. His next big challenge will be the rewriting of laws concerning term limits for the Presidency.  He will certainly attempt to stay in office as long as he possibly can. Add that together with increased dependence on the government, voter apathy, and a loss by the younger generations of pride in their country, and here we are.
