Note that the concept of a political platform
is seldom mentioned any longer in party circles. Policies are designed to be
flexible. Fluid responses to irritant circumstances are the hallmark of daily
talking points. What remains constant is the unswerving commitment to the headship
and the party organization.
Is this a rational approach to governance? What have either Democrat or Republican parties achieved that benefits ordinary citizens? Ask any party regular who campaigns for candidates, works in their bureaucracy or
aspires to be close to the leadership committee! What motivates them is career
advancement. Any other response from lapel pin wearers would be dishonest. The proposition that one has to be part of a power junto to make a difference
or change the system is absurdly fraudulent on the face of such a sham.
When was the last time any genuine criticism
was allowed to go public within either of the two party monoliths? The pretense
of internal squabbles fade as soon as the president is challenged, especially when manufactured crisis is used to divert and
silence true popular debate. This scheme works for both parties. The key element that protects any president is the taboo that forbids ever questioning the office of the
In a nanny society the dependent babies need
to be fed. The president is viewed as both daddy and mommy for all the children.
He can do no wrong when it comes to protecting the home front, providing the
free social programs or guaranteeing a Medicaid dispensed prozac drugged society. So
you don’t personally like the current occupier of the White House, the next pretender may be another Clinton . . . What will really change when the next un-American idol will be a trailer park goddess?
The foreign policy of empire remains the same,
the debt grows expediential, the living wage jobs keep moving offshore, the flood of wet backs track across the border, the
cost of living jumps at every turn as the practice of civil liberties are relegated to the trash bin of a previous era. With each successive administration the substance of the “land of the free”
Our Dear “Beloved Leaders” remind us and conclude: “the Presidency needs to be abandoned. State
governments need to reassert and take back their valid roles and responsibilities. The federal vermin has become a behemoth.
The executive for central command and control is a despot, and all the alphabet agencies are mercenary overseers for enslavement.
The plantation mentality accepts and even longs for omniscient royalty. George W Bush is just another gangster in an unbroken
line of psychopaths that want to be king.”
So how did you fare on taking the Politics, Patriotism
and Protest quiz? Are you a devoted minion of the ruling class? Do you champion the unbroken legacy of top down rule that is the staple of both political parties? Bush’s approval is at 38% as polled by Zogby. Bush also received his all-time worst marks in three other categories in
the CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll. The better question is why is his ranking or that of any other president
as high as it is?
Leader worship is a national sickness. There is nothing patriotic about venerating thugs that rape, pillage and destroy the nation so that privileged
elites can advance their new world disorder. The silly campaign season is once
again foisted upon us. BATR Politics will cover this next segment of the perennial non- democratic charade. For
those non-conformists who recognize the futility of the two party political scam the amusement of another selection cycle
may just bring down those polling numbers even more. The demise of leader worship
is a crucial step in the road for recovery. If you are tired of being canon fodder,
end your consent for a rigged process. Populism deserves a system that is truly
representative. Don’t Vote – Revolt!
