As it often happens, voters are given a choice between an authoritarian leader or a non-authoritarian representative. This difference is fundamental to the very fabric of America’s principles.
The US constitution doesn’t say we should elect leaders. That seems like a pretty shocking revelation to many people. But, this country was not founded on authoritarianism, but on rebellion against such authoritarians. The very nature of the US is to question and restrain authority.
When it comes time to vote, keep that in mind. If you want to change America’s core to be followers of strong leaders, then vote for the authoritarian, but know what you’re doing when you do so.
On the other hand, if you are interested in keeping America free from the tyranny of the oppressive authoritarian leaders, vote accordingly.
Whichever way you vote, be sure you know the consequences of your actions. We were not founded on following strong leaders, but rather overthrowing them.
A billionaire, Koch brothers funded, front group was caught flooding millions of dollars into Nevada elections to circumvent the will of the people. With the Senate seat up for grabs, the billionaires are busy trying to influence Nevada elections.
Their thinking seems to be along the lines of, “the stupid hicks of Nevada will vote for whoever they see on the TV the most.” Obviously they underestimate the Nevada voters.
This isn’t a choice between Republican or Democrat, but between electing a senator who represent the people or one who only represents the billionaires.
Let’s make sure they get the message. We wont elect a billionaire stooge like Joe Heck. What the Heck do they think we are.
Vote the billionaires out of our government. Anyone but Heck.
THE HECK WITH HECK.
I went to a movie at the Galaxy Theaters the other day and was infuriated by the larger than life ad spewing lies about legalized cannabis. The ad smacked of the same lies we were told back in the reefer madness era. Lies about one thing after another.
Many of us can see the lies as the propaganda they are but there are many people out there who will actually believe these ads. And the sad part is that these same fools (being made fools by the ads they watch) go out there and vote based on those lies.
Shame on you Galaxy Theaters for allowing these blatant lies on your screen. If you’re going to allow these obviously lies on your screen, you should at least preface them with a disclaimer to the effect that “the following propaganda ad may contain lies, deception, and falsehoods, so be sure to verify what you see on these ads before believing in them.”
Anything less than that, and you are responsible for people being made fools of all for your profit. Have some morals. It’s not just about profit. There is a responsibility you carry that you don’t deceive or otherwise harm your customers.
Here are some facts to clear up the lies:
- Legal cannabis does not look like the Hershey’s candy you see in a grocery store. You don’t accidentally pick up the wrong kind of candy. I know, it sounds stupid, but that’s exactly what the ad infers and some people believe it.
- Way more than one in six people viewing the ad will be made fools by the lies. However, exactly zero kids in six will get addicted to cannabis.
Take the poll:
Don't Say No, Just Say Why. You name it, politics, religion, opinion, news, you'll find it here.
