Stop asking Jesus to do your fucking work…

There’s a significant percentage of the population that’s become awake and aware.  By that, I mean people that have begun to grasp that our Republic has been a lie and that every four years, two candidates are foisted upon us.  Perhaps the best way to illustrate this point is by using America’s pastime.  And by that I of course mean professional wrasslin’.

Attend a professional wrestling event and you’ll see The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin bitterly insult one another on the microphone for ten minutes and then watch them viciously assault one another for the next twenty.  By all appearances, they despise one another.  One stands for honesty, fair play and whuppin’ somebody’s ass the fair way.  The other stands by nothing.  He cheats to win at every turn and no rule is sacred as long as the referee isn’t looking.

But at the end of the night, when the arena is empty, both men are knocking back beers in Vince McMahon’s office.  You see, they’re actually buddies.  And they both work for Vince.

And that is what we have.  Four years ago, Mitt Romney ran a conservative campaign against Barack Obama.  In the final debate, he had multiple opportunities to go for the jugular and he did not.   You see, a charismatic bi-racial man in the White House could more easily convince the country to go down the destructive path that George W. Bush so effectively started us on.  A path we willingly first set foot on out of fear and anger.  Journey’s that begin for those reasons rarely end at a safe, happy place.

And now 16 years later, we’re a country on its knees.  Our healthcare system is being gutted, over 90 million able-bodied adults are jobless.  50% of the population is on assistance and even more don’t pay a cent in taxes.  The Media consists of half a dozen mega corporations and to call its content “propaganda” is too kind.  The once white knight of the world now provokes wars and a lazy, ignorant populace doesn’t even know it.  Anyone brave enough to argue against continuing down this path is shouted down as a racist, a misogynist or worse.

But then a flawed, but sincere candidate defies the odds and makes it to the finals, driven by a segment of the populace that has finally seen through the game.  The lie that either of these two political parties stand for anything other than profiting from the destruction of the United States.  The Machine responds to this treacherous patriot by trying to destroy him.  The Media suddenly marches to a single beat.  Media corporations that once allowed everyone to have a voice are revealed for what they are:  A mechanism for control.  Content creators on Twitter, YouTube and Facebook suddenly do not have a voice if they share the wrong opinion.  Polls are manipulated to prime the populace for the theft of an election.  The cold hand of invisible fascism suddenly materializes and squeezes.

And those people, the “awake and aware”, some of them are religious.  This is not surprising since the people who are most able to see through the mirage of our two political parties are the people that have a code, a set of morals that hold firm and aren’t swayed by their party.  But I see many of those same people cry out in their evangelical despair:

-“There’s nothing left to do but pray”

-“This is the end.  Get right with God.”

-“The only thing left to do is let the light of our savior into your heart.  He’s all we have left.”

And to those people, I can only say in the most polite way possible:  Fuckkkkkkk youuuuuu.

I am disgusted by the number of people in the “awake and aware” constituency that seem to be content to just lay down and die, all the while muttering prayers to a God that, if he exists, I’m positive put us on this earth to do what’s right and not just ask for a goddamned miracle every time things get tough.  Get up off your goddamn knees, stand up and fucking do something.  Print out articles from Wiki Leaks showing how Hillary Clinton turned the State Department into Santa Clause and the north fucking pole for any foreign country that wanted to slide a few million dollars her way.   Explain to those people how debate moderators like Anderson Cooper were part of the Clinton Global Initiative and consequently, have an obvious bias.  Or explain to them that Hillary Clinton has received twenty times more money from Wall Street than Donald Trump.  Explain how we live in a corptocracy and mega-corporations want a President that will continue to engage in the crony capitalism that’s destroying our government and our economy. The list goes on and on  and on.

The Media is destroying itself in its shameless bid to install Hillary Clinton in the White House.  But until that happens, most people get most or all of their information from that despicable propaganda machine.  Understand that while you might be souring the internet for information on what’s really happening, other people aren’t doing the same.  Educate them.  Be nice, be persuasive, arm yourself with facts.  DO SOMETHING and stop asking Jesus to do your fucking work.
