Voting for Tyranny
Where is this man from Galilee, the one of great incorruptibility, the one who exudes insatiable grace upon detestable souls? Where is our savior of the least? Does he not gaze upon this land with eyes affixed to motive, burdens weighing upon him so heavy, his thoughts formed concentrated strata. Evil deeds pile high while sediment and decay gather up righteous inaction. The providence of divine intervention lays dormant, attitudes of sanctimonious ingratitude begets immoral incompetence and languishing character. When does accountability come to forethought? At what point will guilt overcome pride thus enabling enough provisions for humanity to conquer injustice?
The profoundly enlightened minds of our time are above reproach and they therefore render “do not covet thy neighbor’s house” as outmoded. The problem doesn’t lie in not practicing anything, but practicing everything that sounds equitable. Intellectuals acting upon no sound rules, but using encoded judgment to cast others as too low or too high, they subconsciously partition the world’s resources. The idiom “What’s good for you isn’t what’s good for me” is never brought under microscope. We are mortally sad, how else will society make people pay for hypocrisy if they never exact accountability from abusers?
Rarely can we see evidence of justice being brought to high profile individuals. A female country trio riding on stratospheric popularity made an errant vocal gaffe that all but evicted them from the radio. If words in their case reciprocated such a strong reaction, why do some other nit wits living across the pond not elicit equal measure? It is not ironic that a handful of celebrities whom live in Europe are often caught on tape bad mouthing America, but quickly cash in on huge theater revenues from a recent American film they acted in. One such pop tart played the lead in a very American role about an aging country singers waning career. Of course her flights from England to America for the shooting schedule were very cumbersome…
I really want to talk to you about circumstances of real consequence. The year 2011 is yet becoming another pivotal year of a countries waffling, indecision and self loathing, while serious, clear and present dangers are emerging. Well to do elitists whom are socially protected and monetarily guarded are choosing the fate of all citizens.
“The democracies and their dependent states were still actually and potentially far stronger than the dictatorships, but their position relatively to their opponents was less than half as good as it had been twelve months before. Virtuous motives, trammeled by inertia and timidity, are no match for armed and resolute wickedness. A sincere love of peace is no excuse for muddling hundreds of millions of humble folk into total war. The cheers of weak, well-meaning assemblies soon cease to echo, and their votes soon cease to count. Doom marches on.”
Winston S. Churchill, p190 The Gathering Storm.
Will Churchill’s words echo in our ear? Are not the stars lining up against the great Democracy? Shrouded in media, mesmerized by shallow entertainment, the pampered are comfortable and sleepy with their blankets. Stuck between two cold steel calipers, middle America is constrained, angry and in pain from cancer of the brain. The pressure is building; few can afford the ticket to financial freedom. Rhetoric is clumsily tossed to and fro, name sakes are battling for the same prize. “Vote, vote, vote, we are the same, we are the lame, we already have your money, resistance will only land you a first rate interview with the department of Home Land Security.” I vote for an “R,” a one world marches on, I vote for a “D,” a one world marches on. Who will rise beyond the setting sun? Who will plunge their arm deep into the icy water to pull our near gone body to shore? It isn’t an idea we seek, nor is it a brand, we want a leader. We want someone who will deliver us from false accountability, a person of integrity who hates the pillagers of purses. Where can we find a scion free of perverted politics, responsible with accounts and clear of inimical want? Have we created a phantom? Is there a new party or just another mirage designed to demoralize and confuse us?
What are we?
“Now it came to pass when Samuel was old that he made his sons judges over Israel . The name of his firstborn was Joel, and the name of his second, Abijah; they were judges in Beersheba . But his sons did not walk in his ways; they turned aside after dishonest gain, took bribes, and perverted justice. Then all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah, and said to him, “look, you are old and your sons do not walk in your ways. Now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.” But the thing displeased Samuel when they said, “Give us a king to judge us.”
So Samuel prayed to the Lord. And the Lord said to Samuel, “Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them. According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt , even to this day-with which they have forsaken Me and served other gods-so they are doing to you also. Now therefore, heed their voice. However, you shall solemnly forewarn them, and show them the behavior of the king who will reign over them.”
So Samuel told all the words of the Lord to the people who asked him for a King. Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, “No, but we will have a king over us, that we also may be like all the nations, and that our king may judge us and go out before us and fight our battles.” (I Samuel 8:1-10, 19-22)
And so shall it be… “Hear ye all American’s, our elected King’s are judging us according to our will. We supported them, we voted for them, we gave them money, we gave them labor, and we sacrificed in their name. Now we are angry with what we have created…”
