Steve Slocum: Here’s to never voting again

To the Editor:

I’ve got to wonder if the majority of people actually know what they were voting on. If they did, I further have to wonder if they really know what’s going on in this country.

It seems to me that most people still have their heads stuck in the sand. Whether it’s blatant ignorance or intentional, people seem to think its OK to sit back, do nothing and allow government to run everything and provide them with handouts because it’s “easier” for them not to get involved. It seems that people prefer the nanny state and the welfare state over actually doing things for themselves and being responsible for their own actions.

From the supposed mass educational awakening about governmental corruption and the merger into fascism, I would have thought more people would understand that job loss and being forced to give up liberties for securities (that don’t do anything) wasn’t a Right/Left/Republican/Democrat issue. People apparently don’t read the bills in Congress. People apparently don’t listen to anything but mainstream news. People apparently would rather believe the sign in their neighbors yard than to actually get off their lazy behinds and put some effort into what’s important.

People apparently don’t study history or even have the slightest clue that it is AGAIN is repeating itself. Granted, it becomes more and more difficult each time it occurs to expose because of evolution, but the blatant facts still remain.

Well, this being said. I’m done voting with clueless ignorant lazy people. I’m not voting again until people wake up to the reality that our world is serfdom and a complete illusion to the serfs. The Matrix wasn’t just a movie, it metaphorically explains our true reality. You can all go to the ballot box like monkeys in an experiment gone horribly wrong. When it falls apart, don’t come crying to the people who tried to warn you. Enjoy your depression.
