Murder plain and simple

Another tragedy befalls the United States of America, another mass shooting on home territory. While many are shocked and horrified by these events, it does not surprise me. I am sad at the deaths of the innocent young children, it is thoroughly disgusting that these innocent young beings are made to suffer. But I am not shocked, I am not surprised, and I am not going to be part of the knee jerk crowd who ask the benevolent hand of government for more regulations and control to make me feel better about it, in fact quite the opposite would be appropriate.

murder 1

The media parade death like some horrific spectator sport, and concentrate only on the killer and the tally of death caused. They speculate on government interference of firearms rights, and yet do not look deep into what caused the nasty human being to snap in the first place. Instead they ask the question ‘what would cause a person to do this?’ and then go back to their speculation and death count.

murder 4

All the while this is going on, we continue to ignore the mass murder our nation commits every week under the guise of ‘fighting terrorism’. How many thousands of young children have to die in other nations until we are satisfied?

It is tragic that these young children were killed last Friday, and I morn for their deaths, as I morn for the deaths of all innocent children murdered all over the world. But it will not surprise me as this continues to happen until we change our thought process and habits, until we stop our murderous rampage all over the middle east, and until we decide to concentrate our spare time on constructive games and past times, instead of violent movies and vicious video games. Nothing will change until we reject violent government regimes, including our own. Nothing will change until we grow up and decide that we are best off defending ourselves as individuals instead of asking government to do it for us, whether it be at home or abroad.

murder 3

Because the fact of the matter is, it doesn’t matter if it is a bunch of sweet young kids in Connecticut, or a village of small families in Pakistan; murder is murder; plain and simple; and it is quite unacceptable.

The republicans suck

No I’m not a democrat. I just don’t buy into the fallacy of ‘the lesser of two evils’.

My mailbox got spammed this week with letters to vote the democrats out of office for wasteful spending. All three of the letters said this:

“End the democrats’ wasteful spending.

Cut the deficit.

Cap Spending.

Balance the budget.

Vote Republican

Tuesday, November 6th”

What do you think I am; stupid? Seriously, do you think I’m suffering from short term memory loss? I seem to recall the republicans massively increasing spending while in office during the Bush administration. How is it any different if the democrats do it? Why is it that people allow themselves to be played when ‘the other side is doing it’ but forget when their ‘side’ does it?

And then there was a letter for John Boehner, which said:

“John Boehner Fighting for freedom. Making a Difference.”

Nice tag line, shame its all a complete lie. This scum bag is the one who read from a teleprompter during the RNC convention, and completely ignored shouts from the delegates during a robo call. Not to mention being speaker of the house during the signing of the NDAA act, of which I can’t remember him saying anything against. Freedom my foot. Boehner is just like every other politician, he doesn’t care about freedom, he only cares about money and power.

On one side of my street there is a lady with an ‘Obama/Biden’ sign. Lovely lady, very pleasant to talk to, I guess she just doesn’t get it. Across the other side of the street there are two other signs, one reads ‘Romney/Ryan’. Nice old couple, always decorate their yard for Halloween and Christmas. But I guess they don’t get it either, after all Romney is is practically Obama’s twin on almost every policy. Their other sign reads ‘Keep America free. Fire Obama’. While I agree with firing Obama, I disagree with the keeping America free part. As it stands today, America is not free. We have a long way to go to get back to freedom. But I understand the point of the sign.

The reason I say that the republicans suck, is because as they stand today, they vary very little from the democrats. I do tend to lean more republican because the democrats simply don’t get it. It’s very easy to vote for a ‘generic republican’ to get rid of a democrat, but that doesn’t solve anything unless the said republican is principled and sticks to what he preaches. I like republicans such as Ron Paul, Rand Paul, and former New Mexico republican governor Gary Johnson. These men represent the future of the party, if the party will adapt to our demands. As it stands today the collective republican party does not stand for liberty and free markets. It stands for big government and corporate fascism. It is very important to learn this in order to hold your representatives feet to the fire.

I will not be voting for Mitt Romney for a myriad of reasons. I will be voting for Gary Johnson. My generation is expected to foot the bill for the massive multi-trillion dollar deficit which has been run up by both the republicans and the democrats. We are expected to be used as cannon fodder for the increasing and unnecessary wars in the middle east, and we are expected to be used as collateral for the expansion of debts and growth of government over the coming years under both the republicans and democrats. For my generation, this simply will not stand.

5% of the vote splits the two party monopoly forever. The libertarian party will grow exponentially during this election period. The republicans will really have to dig deep and change their ways if they want to get our votes again. The children of the information age are growing up, and we’re mad as hell about all the silly games that have been played on our parents by this two party shenanigan, and we’re mad as hell that we’re expected to not only believe in these fairy tales from both parties, but to fight, die and slave for their mistakes.

As of right now the republicans suck, but there is a new party out there which is willing to embrace true guardians of liberty. The largest freedom movement since the days of Thomas Jefferson and the other founding fathers is upon us. Come join us and hold all the looters feet to the fire!

Live Free! Vote Gary Johnson for president in 2012!
