Am I Happy The Democrats Took Congress?

Am I happy that Democrats took control of congress? Hell no. Democrat politicians are just as bad as Republican politicians. They’re both owned by special interests. They both support bigger government. Just like the Republicans, the Democrats aren’t going to solve any of our problems; They’ll just make them worse. The Democrats do such things as increase our taxes, increase the enforcement of victimless crimes (e.g. gun ownership), and increase government spending.

Republican or Democrat, I like most people I meet as individuals. In contrast, politicians are all a bunch of multi-faced crooks, and the government is nothing but a mafia.

Why I Didn’t Vote

I want to solve these problems facing, such as victimization, but we need to do it ourselves. We need to utilize non-governmental solutions and voluntary cooperation. Playing into divisive partisan politics just furthers the corruption of the status quo. Instead of that, we need to use non-governmental organization, such as creating and promoting private clubs, private charities, and grassroots movements based on voluntaryism.
Here’s some quotes:

Malcom X:

“The difference between the Democrats and the Republicans is the Republicans will stick a 12 inch knife in your back then the democrats will come along and pull it out 3 inches – I don’t call pulling a 12 inch knife out of my back 3 inches making progress.”

Malcolm X had no illusions in the so-called differences between the Democrats and Republicans. “One is the wolf, the other is a fox. No matter what, they’ll both eat you.” In the 1964 presidential elections, when the candidates were Johnson (the “peace” candidate) vs. Goldwater (the “war” candidate), Malcolm X exposed the deciet of this phony distinction.

“The shrewd capitalists, the shrewd imperialists,” he said, “knew that the only way people would run towards the fox (Johnson) would be if you showed them the wolf (Goldwater). So they created a ghastly alternative… And at the moment he (Johnson) had troops invading the Congo and South Vietnam.”

    Compelling perspective, although I don’t understand why voting and participating in “non-governmental solutions” are mutually exclusive. No one (at least no rationally-minded indvidual) would argue with the fact that our political system is deeply flawed, however, change is incremental filled with a variety of charges and retreats. I believe what occured on Tuesday was a notable charge toward the installation of a viable Democracy here in the US, damaged as it may currently be.
