Health-care, et. al.

From my response to a forum post elsewhere:

Washington himself cautioned against having political parties for this very reason. My party, your party. It's all BS. They're not your party, they get fed by big business and in turn feed big business. You don't mean squat to them except as a source of income from taxes and a way to get to power. Politicians are swindlers, and you have been swindled if you swallow their Kool-Aid. Democrats and Republicans are Pepsi and Coke. Two similar flavors that are super bad for you that hide behind superb marketing.

If you throw words around like they do in Washington, you have swallowed the bait hook, line, and sinker. Democracy. My ass. This nation has never been, is not now, and will never be a democracy. That's a bullshit, feelgood buzzword the government has been feeding the world.

This healthcare reform isn't about taking care of Americans. This is about controlling things, power, and money.

The war on {INSERT CAUSE HERE} is exactly what Orwell predicted it would be. Rally the nation to our cause! Drugs! Alcohol! Guns! Terrorists! FEAR! The war isn't meant to be won. It's meant to be continuous. And it is.

Bah. Words are worthless at this point. The sheep have long since covered their eyes and ears and started humming the Star Spangled Banner over common sense.
