I can’t take credit for this. I was having a conversation with a friend of mine this morning, and this came up.
Elections are coming and we get the government we deserve.
What does that mean? It’s pretty simple actually.
There are plenty of bad candidates on both sides of the aisle that shouldn’t be elected to any level of elected office. But people talk a good game, and then they don’t go to the polls. Or they vote how they are told by their particular political party.
If you want better government, we need balance. And in order to get balance, it means you can’t depend on political parties (and candidates) shoving sample ballots, even illegal sample ballots under your nose, you have to do your own research.
So do your own research. And if a politician sounds too good to be true a lot of the time they are and then there are the charlatans. I won’t mention any specific charlatans, but you know I have a couple in mind. (They are Chester County Republicans.)
And if you are a Democrat in Chester County one of my favorite charlatans is named Charlotte. Charlotte Valyo who is the current bad chair of The Chester County Democratic Committee. Now the irony is that they have this thing on their website:
We’re fired up and ready to go! We’re your friends, family and neighbors who are empowering voters and grassroots supporters. We’re fighting for a brighter future for all Americans, and organizing in every corner of our great county. Join us!~ Chester County Democratic Committee
And yes, at present I am a registered Democrat. However, that above is a large load of happy horse shit. They only want you to do what they want you to do. They don’t want grass roots. They don’t want independent candidates they don’t even want current elected officials who are independent minded ….and yes Charlotte we KNOW what you’re up to.
The Chester County Democratic Committee also now that they are the party in control of the county seems to specialize in dirty tricks, especially in primary season, but you have to pay attention all year long. And I think what needs to happen is you need to cut off the head of the snake and get rid of the deadwood that is still hanging around that are former snakeheads that have been cut off. So Charlotte and others need to go.
And I’m not letting the Republican Committee of Chester County off the hook either. On their website they proclaim:
Making the rights of life, liberty and
the pursuit of happiness a reality for all.~ Republican Committee of Chester County
So the Chesco GOP is all for rights, but they support the rights of people who think our rights are subjective. They have committee people who are constantly promoting incorrect conspiracy theories on the Internet. They cater to extremism groups and they don’t vet their candidates and they can’t even find good candidates. So half of the reason I can’t support a lot of their candidates even if I was a Republican, is I do not feel that my inalienable rights are subjective.
INALIENABLE RIGHTS. All persons are born free and have certain inalienable rights which include the right of pursuing life’s basic necessities, of enjoying and defending their lives and liberties, of acquiring, possessing and protecting property and of seeking their safety, health and happiness in all lawful ways.
We are a country designed on a two party system. This whomever gets all the toys wins is not working for anyone. And the way the Chesco Dems are acting while in control is the way the Chesco GOP acted when they were in control.
So how do we the literal people win? Do your homework. Check out candidates on your own and remember off year election cycles are important because it lets starter politicians you don’t want in office anywhere get in the door of local school districts via school boards…you know like the fake professor in the DASD? (Gosh what pejorative term will he attempt to attach to me this week for mentioning but not mentioning him? Can’t wait!)
Don’t be afraid to split your ticket because as a country, we were designed as a two party system and until we achieve balance, we are going to continue to achieve free fall.
Do your homework. If any of us continue to vote the way we are “told“ we all get what we deserve. Dare to be different. You don’t have to tell anyone. They don’t have hidden cameras watching you fill out your ballot or when you’re in the booth.
