“What’s going on?” everyone is asking incredulously. TV and computer screens all over the planet show Americans in streets celebrating and shouting things like “We’ve had enough political corruption. We’re not going to take anymore!”
At 2 A.M. on NBC Brian Williams sits with Tim Russett and Keith Olbermann, and sums up:
“Americans have spoken and American politics have changed forever.” “It’s like the nightmare of entertainers: nobody shows up for their event,” says bemused Olbermann. Russett grimly observes, “We should have seen this coming; people have been fed up with both parties for a long time.”
Meanwhile, the Internet is buzzing with talk of voiding the presidential and congressional election results, that President Bush may declare a national state of emergency, and that the Supreme Court might step in again.
Did anyone think that the Constitution required a minimum voter turnout to make elections legit?
Elections are distractive entertainment, a political narcotic.
It is not.
Nonvoters should never feel guilty, only proud to have sent a none-of-the-above rejection message.
The way to shake up the system is to boycott voting.
“Conscience is the most sacred of all property.”
“Don't vote--it only encourages them.”Related Articles
