The Political Circus Worship Is Gaining Ground Quickly: Why?

By  Gary D. Barnett

« The main problem in any democracy is that crowd-pleasers are generally brainless swine who can go out on a stage & whup their supporters into an orgiastic frenzy—then go back to the office & sell every one of the poor bastards down the tube for a nickel apiece. »

~ Hunter S. Thompson,  Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72

I hate politics! Period! Politics is nothing more than the lowest form of human seeking power over others; liars, cheats, attention-getters, murderers, and psychopathic maniacs, who will say anything to get elected, and then act as their immoral normal selves once in power. This is inclusive of ‘almost' all of them regardless of their rhetoric-spewing. But as always, the masses gather round, and find their choice of slime to support. It matters not what history has shown over eternity; it matters not that the outcome is worse every single election cycle; it matters not that they are lied to over and over again perpetually; it matters not that their freedoms are endlessly destroyed, and their families harmed.

The very idea of politics is disgusting and completely stupid. Purposely voting for a master's rule over you, is in and of itself pathetic. It would have to be described as insanity, for to voluntarily choose a ruling class with power over all people, a government, is asinine on its face, and telling of the weakness and cowardice of the common man who can do nothing for himself, but expects his political choice to do everything for him. He expects to be told how to live, he is inundated with orders and mandates backed by immoral ‘laws,' all upheld by brutal force. This show will all be sanctioned and paid for by the same enslaved voters who agreed to their own demise.

This is not relegated just to those called ‘commoners,' those of a particular party, or those so-called intellectual elites, as all of them are equal in their idiocy and mindlessness concerning this political process. It is the same with republicans, democrats, ‘independents,' and most claimed libertarians, even some voluntaryists, and pretend anarchists. They all seem to want to latch on to some ruler wannabe. Each election brings more worship of another simpleton human falsely portraying the role of ‘statesman' and savior of ‘his' people. This time is no different.

At least the ‘honesty' of the ‘liberal' democrats is refreshing, as they will always stick with their piece of garbage candidate, while the republicans and libertarians will argue as to which useless trimmer should gain their vote and support. This time around should be interesting in a comedic way, although the tyrannical madness of government will remain firmly in place regardless of which manipulating clown is selected by the master class.

In this upcoming farce called a national election, there are so many contradictions, that this game might be more interesting than normal. When Mencken said: « As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron. » Well, the office of president is literally adorned by a moron, and worse, an unintelligible and criminal fool; although he is at the same time evil. But fear not, as many more are in line to take his place, and while they can for the most part, actually walk and talk at the same time, the risk of their clownlike behavior, lies, and deadly policies, will remain intact, regardless of party and all manner of voter affiliations and hypocrisy.

On the democratic side, you have as your choices currently (until the one is chosen by the ruling elites) Biden, Williamson, and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., who is also apparently a republican, and a libertarian. That is quite a trick. The republican side includes many, including the worthless Trump, very likely DeSantis, Haley, Ramaswamy, Elder, Hutchinson, Scott, and possibly Pence, Sununu, Burgam, and Youngkin. What a group. The bottom line as mentioned above, will be decided by the rulers, not the people, not that it matters in any way, but it is good to know that the voter will be screwed as always. They will have no clue that they are the ignorant pawns of a system they fully endorse, support, and participate in every single time expecting a different outcome.

The so-called ‘libertarians' will be very confused during this process, as they will support any politician, regardless of party or manner, so long as he ‘promises' to address one or two so-called ‘libertarian' platforms. It is not that any elected official would actually do such a thing, even after many promises, but even if a new president actually wanted to do something of value, he is and has forever been fully controlled by the real rulers and masters. All of them acquiesce to the real power, for if they did not, they would not last very long. But is it not amazing, that they all end up doing everything possible to advance the master plan and narrative, even in the midst of claiming otherwise throughout their campaigns.

All of these ‘candidates,' are making speeches, going on major platforms, ‘debating' each other, announcing their candidacy to crowds of revelers, and it is all a show; a fake show that goes unnoticed by nearly every single group, including those who claim to believe in freedom, while at the same time stumping for a new ruler to be their political boss. Almost none are exempt from this magnificent hypocrisy, except those who refuse to participate in this process for fools called elections, and understand the absolute idiocy of voluntarily choosing rulers to lord over your accepted enslavement.

Politicians are not bound to do anything, regardless of what they say or claim. They are not under any legal obligation whatsoever to keep promises, as has been evidenced throughout this country's entire history. None of these congressional politicians can even be arrested for not doing as they promised to do; that per the heinous constitution in  Article 1, Section 6, Clause 1. This is called a political ‘privilege,' but in essence, is just a get out of jail free card.

So go out and scream and yell, clap your hands, hold stupid signs, march, sing, worship your political savior of choice, publish articles about the greatness of your pick, vote as many times as you can, and see how much better off you will be after the bell tolls, as your new master, no matter which one is selected, is now your new king.

« Democracy is also a form of worship. It is the worship of jackals by jackasses. »

~ H.L. Mencken
