The Cult of DC

Updated on November 13, 2013

Change We Can Believe In?


The Cult of Washington DC

For all of us living outside of the beltway it is inconceivable how Washington DC prattles on and still maintains power in the United States. By any measure all of these bums would be thrown out on their collective behinds. They have not acted in the interests of the general welfare in so long but lined their own greedy pockets in the name of their own personal wealth.

By any definition Washington DC is compromised of a Cult not based on religious beliefs but based on the following.

1) Mind control. DC limits everything they know and they limit everything everyone else knows.

2) There problems are reduced to one simple repeated problem..the economy.

3) Unconditional love and acceptance form a charismatic leader Obama.

4) They get a new identity based on their status such as government or citizen ie; POTUS.

5) They are isolated and subject to control of information.

Now oddly enough the FBI is suppose to guard against cults. It is there job to disrupt secret societies as they are not legal. And still yet they exist on every single college campus in American and extend into our political system. After 9/11 it would seem the FBI went from disrupting secret societies to joining them. The fundamental purpose of all cults is organized crime.

Now the sad part of all of this is that not only are the people inside the beltway in a cult and lack the ability to be free thinkers but the people outside the beltway also seem to be in a cult as well. As they suffer from mind control. The worst mind control is the television. They are told their one problem is joblessness or the economy when in fact the POTUS is willing to spend a BILLION dollars (Meet the Press 10/30/11) on his bid for re-election when he has children going to bed hungry under his leadership.

And the people inside the beltway love each other unconditionally. There is more back scratching and double dealing to take from people outside of the belt way. Oh they love each other in DC. They gave themselves a 5% raise this year when they let the debt ceiling collapse. Their constituents are unemployed and they give themselves a raise and the president didn’t veto that measure. He could vote against war but he can’t vote against congresses raises in the worst economic climate in decades. That shows a lack of judgment.

New identities is when they call themselves congress or rich constantly seperating themselves from the very people they are suppose to represent. Give me a fat single unemployed black mother running for congress who looks like the people she represnets instead of celebrities.

Congress is isolated and information is withheld from them as well. It is how the executive controls them.

It can be said for everyone outside of DC as well but people are waking up from the cult. Pain has a way of doing that to a soul. Now if only Congress can share our pain as well. Then they too can wake up.



Who Should Be Our New Leader?

Given the super committee is about to really cripple the country with spending cuts which could easily be covered by the amount of money spent on the campaigns to elect a new president, I think it is time to end POTUS’s reign. For Obama to expect us to believe in him after he has spent the last three years doing everything the American people desperately hate including but not limited to taking us to war with Libya, there is no reason to re-elect him. To do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result is the definition of insanity. To re-elect Obama is insanity but to expect the next Republican leader to be any different then Obama is insanity as well. Obama was more like Bush (43) then like Bill Clinton. So to expect the next president no matter what party not to be the exact same as Barack Obama or Bush (43) is not understand DC is a cult.

And even if we keep throwing the bums out they are so stove piped and stacked into the next election cycle that it would be impossible to find someone who thought outside of the cult of DC. So I believe we should move to a parliamentary system without an executive.


Since writing this article I have discovered my family has worked for 10 presidents, I have visited and stayed in DC, and we have all been through the massacre of Benghazi.

A New Tomorrow

The pain of no holidays will be an electro-shock therapy for everyone in this country to realize they have to get rid of their government and turn their televisions off. What would be needed would be free thinkers which aren’t subject to cult thinking. They would have to have no political affiliation. With the death of Christmas 2013 so should the death of both political parties occur. By no means should violence be employed and everyone should have their camera’s on. It is time America is liberated from it’s most violent oppressors; the tyranny of their government. It is very easy to take power away from the government. Turn them off and tune them out.

They have betrayed all of us for their own personal power, wealth and fame. Why would we ever have such people represent the decent good hearted American people ever again? We are a nation of immigrants and we believe in the dream of the immigrant and yet everyday more people are deported. This too must end.

Let all of us no longer be divided but united in getting everyone out of politics including but not limited to everyone who has served inside the belt way. It is time they and Hollywood feel our pain. Let them bleed for us as they represent us and the last people who should be living well in this country is the cult inside the beltway.

I am no longer amused by this cult which claims to be my government.

Let's us wake to a new tomorrow in which their is in light from all this darkness and end the reign of the Cult of DC.

Changing of the Guards


First, I want to address the cult of DC aspect of this article. DC is filled with really educated, hardworking diverse people who strive to get it right each and every day. Unfortunately, they are always countered by the Think Tankers. Some Think Tanks are great but the majority exist, and this has been going on since Socrates, to create problems to ensure government power. It would be nice for a change if they started thinking some helpful thoughts but that is not the nature of the majority of Think Tanks.

Second, this institutional or 'cult' practice is not franchised by the United States of America by any means. Every country does it.

Third, the people in DC work very long hard hours, outside the political system, and are idealists.

Fourth, federal government employees work exceptionally hard and have taken furloughs and been very patriotic.

Fifth, clubs are good. The level of education in DC is high and the people have a great deal of sense. In Florida, I hear a comment about my son who has autism being rain man twice a day when we go out at least. In DC no one said anything to my son but one drunk and then everyone had the decency to be embarrassed.

Sixth, besides the one drunk where we were and we were all over Virginia, Maryland and DC. I did not see alcohol or drug abuse. People minded their poisons.

Seventh, I think we should keep throwing politicians out until they get it right but the federal workers and the people of DC, Virginia and Maryland are sage hardworking good people we should all be proud of. That goes double for the folks over at the Pentagon. Yes, I was allowed in and was not escorted by a heavily armed guard. These folks are working day in and day out trying to make our country better. I personally could not be more proud of them as they have great honor.

Finally, I highly recommend all of you see DC for yourself. Meet and talk to the wonderful people there. It completely changed my mind. With exception of our politicians and I am not referring to all of them, I am so proud to have all of the federal employees and people who live and work in Maryland, Virginia and DC. I found a cult of self-sacrificing hardworking exception human beings in our federal government and subsequent agencies. Perhaps I will someday work in a Think Tank and ask the Think Tankers why they believe chaos is needed to create order? And how government or order influences chaos because I believe the more order forced the more chaos is created but that is just my opinion from Aristotle's Physics.

I found a Cult of Honor in DC. I know it seems impossible coming from me but it is what I discovered.


Final Note

TV makes everything look large and this is especially true of the White House. There is a lovely public park in front of it and it faces the Capital building.

The Treasury Department which is right next to the White House is huge.

When I saw the size of the White House I just hung my head and shook it from side to side uttering, "Poor Michelle!". That is one dutiful first lady. Secret Service stands outside and you can see the Biden residence, "Way to go Joe!".

I don't watch television, read the paper nor read the internet. I work with my son. If it is important enough someone will tell me. I am too busy creating like all artists or appreciating others' work. This happened on October 3rd and we were in DC October 30th.

From the Street to The White House is Very Close

      True but DC must be experienced before being judged. I still think the politicains are in a cult by the federal workers and the people of DC are truly wonderful. I value and appreciate them. I would live to be able to say the same about our leaders. The Pentagon was most impressive.

      hi gconeyhiden,

      I hate to break it to you but Ron Paul is in the cult. All of them are in a cult in DC. I know my family has worked for 9 presidents. You don't get into DC unless you join the cult. It is what is wrong with this country.

      There is no one running not in a cult right now. The question is who is most likely to break from cult thinking in DC? And the answer is no one who plans on working there.

      Check out my hubs on the Rough Riders. My family served in the secret service as well. It is all true. You just don't want to believe it. Trust me, it is true. And Ron Paul is one of them!!!

      hi JT, OK I like the brain washing mind control bit..well not really too close to reality. anyway maybe this is a good place to get votes for Ron Paul the only out of the box candidate running. I have never in my life hawked votes for a republican candidate but for that matter i dont even understand why he is a republican and not independent. want change? thats about as much change as youll ever likely to get these days..its a long shot but hey. nothings impossible right?

      Hi Harvey,

      I agree but to re-elect any of them from either party or currently in politics would be a tragedic mistake. We need to make certain the not only does everyone know but everyone lives beneath the lowest standard outside of the beltway. Personlly I think the Whte House should be turned into a Homeless shelter and AIDS refuge. Do you know how many people are homeless and have AIDS in DC?

      Everyone in politics is out now and those even that aspire right now are out. We all need to change the game so inside the beltway really understands they can't continue on as they have.

      JT, You are correct, those in Washington don't even care what, who or anything out side of the beltway. We have to tighten the belt.

      Re-elect Obama shows the mentality our society has fallen too. H

      Hi Tim,

      I guess we can either cry about it or laugh about it. I was rather certain when I compared DC to a cult it would offend many people. But inside the beltway does fit the definition of a cult. Enjoy my friend I write for the elightenment, education and amusement of others.

      Glad I could write something useful.

      JT, I'm giggling, and bookmarking. I will return to discover those links after work. Thank you for posting such a well defined hub full of meaning.
