I was watching (back in December) the Republican presidential debates on the highly propagandized FOX News network (The same FOX news that got rid of Freedom Watch. Yes, the same Fox News that we should never in life lend credibility to. Yes, those bastards.) and I saw a commercial promoting the National Popular Vote Initiative.
As a black man, (not that I am implying a need to be black to have credibility on this topic) this idea of “majority rules” damn-near scared me to death and yes, thoughts of an Americanized form of Communism cross dressing as a fair democracy for the good of the people is on the table at this very moment and being packaged up, shipped out, and actively marketed to the American people.
The pathetic commercial (*cough* *cough* “propaganda piece”) below has no educational value (yet “they” used a school as the backdrop), was made for the least sophisticated viewer (people who aren’t the sharpest knives in the drawer), and could have easily been passed off as a comedy skit playing during a tea and cheese interlude during the break-time of a constitutional convention.
I am trying not to use too much profanity but this just pisses me off. They feed you this bullshit and don’t even explain the values of a republican form of government while trashing it for a Majority run government which, by surprise, they don’t explain the perils or benefits of, either.
(Different Topic for a different day.)
The very idea that this commercial would run in front of a likely Republican leaning audience, many of which may actually understand why we are better off with the Republican form of government we have now (not that some Democrats don’t understand), just shows the ferocity of the movement.
The National Popular Vote bill would guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in the entire United States. The bill preserves the Electoral College, while ensuring that every vote in every state will matter in every presidential election. The National Popular Vote law has been enacted by states possessing 132 electoral votes — 49% of the 270 electoral votes needed to activate it. -National Popular Vote.com
Majority Rules? I think not. A majority having full power (over everything) is unacceptable for America. The United States would begin to collapse faster than it already is (giving irresponsible political parties full spectrum domination), and a National Popular Vote Initiative would do nothing more than speed up the process.
Remember when state sponsored racism was prevalent in America?
Do you think the Japanese people (during World War 2) would have voted to put themselves in interment camps?
Do you think the black men of the Tuskegee Experiments if given a chance) would have voted to subject themselves to syphilis?
Do you think if the Majority ever ruled, that anything would ever change?
What if 51% of the United States population lived in California?
Would that be cool for the people in New York and Texas?
Does Majority Rule equal equality?
(Not no, oh no…, but HELL NO!)
See what I mean?
Three sex crazed men, one uninterested woman, and a vote on if they have sex or not. 1 person, 1 vote.
If that simple little story (which just ended) doesn’t give you a feeling of the spirit of the message I am trying to share with this article then nothing will, and you shouldn’t be getting involved in politics.
Whether or not you should be allowed to vote or not is up for debate. But then again, if majority rules then your vote doesn’t count anyway does it? But then again, you are probably too concerned about Beyonce’s Baby to give a damn about the future of our great nation anyway.By: VizFactimus Maximus From Talicactimus: Buy Some Snake Oil! 02/25/2012
