Why We Vote …

Let me see if I have this right … If I understand this when the above had it (the Native American’s) they owned all of the land, and they did NOT pay taxes on it.  The women did all the work, and all the warriors had to do is hunt and fish.

Every now and then they were conscripted to go fight the White Eyes, baby and squaw killers or another tribe.  But face it folks, “that is the American thing to do.”

Here we are a couple of hundred years later, and the bottom folks are running the show.  All you have left is the opportunity to vote who you think will _____ you the least in the end.  Which got me to thinking about why it is that American’s vote in the first place.  I came up with a few things that I will share with you for free.  

Here is the short list.

You vote because you love the fact that you can now marry whatever or whoever you want. Even your German Shepherd.  You vote because you believe oil companies’ profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn’t.  You vote because you believe the government will do a better job of spending the money you earn than you would.

You vote because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.  You vote because because you are way too irresponsible to own a gun, and you know that our local police are all you need to protect us from murderers and thieves.  You vote because you believe that people who can’t tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if you don’t start driving a Honda HyBrid.

You vote because you are not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.  You vote because you think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take away the social security from those who paid into it.  You vote because you believe that businesses should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the the rest of the non-working population see’s fit.

You vote because because you believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.  You vote because you think that it’s better to pay billions for their oil to people who hate us, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher or fish or spoil the view in Martha’s Vineyard where you happen to live.

You vote because your head is so firmly planted up your ass, and it’s highly unlikely that you’ll ever have another valid point of view.

If you can wrap your head around all that then I suppose you could be considered a good American Voter at least that is the way I understand it.  I kind of liked it better when the Indian’s had it all.  

At least they respected the land and quickly realized who the REAL enemy of America was, not like today when the only people who seem to know what is going on are cab drivers and barbers.
