VOTER FRAUD (or Defrauded?)

leave a comment »

Which is it – fraudulent or defrauded – democratic or democracy, and what’s the difference?

Just because “everybody” says it or seems to believe it – doesn’t mean that ‘group think’ will best enforce democracy, let alone represent those whose motive may be democratically aligned with ‘the party’ line.

In fact the ‘party line’ is often a manufactured belief to which others are asked to conform or to align for the perceived ‘good of the group’. Certainly one cannot express any opposition since that can be ‘career limiting’ and castigation may soon follow. At first it is just ‘politically incorrect’ then unpopular, then tyranny when everyone else has been ‘won over’.

Turns out that opposition may be exactly how democracy can survive – by those who raise counterpoints, are not ‘swayed’ by crowd noise, and that at least stop the lemming run for a moment of sanity. Instead, many often rush to do the WRONG thing, in small and even large groups. This is made clear in their book “SWAY” – by authors Ori and Rom Brafman who note these interesting observations on human nature, explaining why teams, companies, Congress, or even nations may not be democratic by nature.

Perhaps that explains why many seemingly intelligent folks democratically agreed to act in a way that created the crisis which some others saw coming. Perhaps since some are actually at fault, that explains why they want others to act quickly on some ‘bailout’ so that EVERYONE can then be seen as co-conspirators when THAT new solution becomes the next problem. Perhaps it explains why rather than ‘focusing ON’ the solution many are just ‘cussing AT’ each other. And perhaps it might help to have an explanation that even ‘Forrest Gump’ understands, as reported here:

Mortgage Backed Securities are
…like boxes of chocolates.

“Key political figures” thought everyone was entitled to have some – even if they couldn’t afford them. So they funded some ‘nutty’ agency to organize community action groups and promote this giveaway idea. Lenders that refused to share their chocolates were noted as ‘politically incorrect’ and even more pressure was put on them – including some strong words from the Attorney General’s office.

To make the deal worse, some criminals on Wall Street stole a few chocolates from the boxes and “CHANGED” them for turds. Their criminal buddies at Standard & Poor rated these boxes AAA Investment Grade chocolates. These boxes were then sold all over the world to investors. The stolen chocolates were given to “key political figures” as ‘protection money’ so these criminals could continue unnoticed. Eventually somebody bites into a turd and discovers the crime.

Suddenly nobody trusts the American chocolates anymore. Chocolate values are starting to ‘stink’ everywhere – globally. Hank Paulson steps in and wants the American taxpayers to buy up and hold all these boxes of turd-infested chocolates for $700 billion dollars until the American market for chocolate returns to normal or all the turds can be found. Some other politicians are not sure about this but approved it because something sure needs to be done, and quick. The world’s key financial leaders all wonder what to do and why this was happening.

Meanwhile, the Wall Street criminals who stole all the good chocolates quit the business taking even more stolen chocolates with them. They aren’t being investigated, arrested, or indicted because the same “key political figures” are still in charge – and promising even greater ‘CHANGE’ – soon. And, they claim that the real problem is that they weren’t being regulated well enough to prevent this crime – and that we ALL need to share any blame.

Some in the press are accusing those who smell something of having a rotten attitude because they have their heads up their buts – even accusing them of being against sharing candy of any kind. They say that we’re too dumb to understand these complicated issues…

But Mama always said: ‘Turds can look just like chocolate, Forrest’.

So if you find yourself frustrated by recent events and your inability to explain it to your colleagues or Congressmen, remember:

For those who understand,
no explanation is needed.

For those who do not understand,
no explanation is possible.

And when you get that most precious opportunity to vote, remember:

  • It is not whether you vote with the majority that may really count
  • You might be voting with the ‘majority of folks who are wrong…’ or those whose intentions are purely selfish and might entice you to

…democratically vote away your rights to have a democracy.

In DEMOCRACY – it’s your vote that counts,

in Feudalism – it’s your Count that VOTES.

…and that’s all there is to say about that…!
