Like a donut, there is no center…

America, we need to get some things straight. I got about six lines into a post about the right skewing trend of our political system. I was going to lament about the lack of centrists being elected to our government. Then I realized that they were actually all centrists. The political center is so far to the right in this country that even the liberals are big business conservatives.
Given that the large majority of Americans believe what ever is shouted at them the loudest, I have no suggestions for fixing the problem. I do however suggest you look up the word Plutocracy. While you’re at it, look up the Koch brothers. If you’re planning on flying, look up the 4th amendment, due process, and habeas corpus.
I like my Church and my State to occupy separate buildings. I think science should be guiding our nation’s energy and environmental policy, not religion (look up Rep. John Shimkus). While we’re at it, Freedom of religion doesn’t only apply to choosing which protestant Christian faith to worship. It means all religions.
Here’s my prediction. Sara Palin wins the presidency in 2012 with Glen Beck as her VP. Even if she doesn’t run, her misguided tea party whack job militia will organize a tragically effective write in campaign. Republicans pick up the rest of congress. Fearing a return to toxic economic policies, the rest of the world walls off our country to minimize the damage. Also, they’ll use TV to convince us that the moon and Mars are harboring terrorists and Nazi’s. This way we’ll direct our resources (read military) to getting to the moon and Mars (look up Iron Sky). With our nation safely isolated and preoccupied, the rest of the world will move on to greener technology and continue to sell oil (now abundant because of electric vehicles and mass transit) to us for higher and higher prices. It is my hope to be a Canadian by the time this comes to pass. Maybe even British.

About faultcode113

I'm just a normal thirty something guy. Married with a house, tow cars, and one dog. I enjoy my work, but not always my job. I love to travel abroad, specifically the UK. I swear I was the tallest guy in Tokyo when I was there. I prefer reading to movies and tv. I prefer Sci-fi to most everything else. I feel it fits better as an escapist past time. I'm also a student of history. How can one learn from the past if they don't know anything about it? If this all seems rather random, it is. My life has been a series of free associations. I wouldn't have it any other way. If you like what I post, tell a friend. If you don't, tell a friend anyways. They might like it. FC113 View all posts by faultcode113
