Our Broken Government

60 Minutes just ran a piece they called The Broken Congress.  To watch it, go here.

It was a fairly honest piece from the Presstitutes  who asked some straight-forward questions that were expertly side-stepped by two of the biggest a-holes known to man – House Majority leader Harry Reid and his counterpart  -----. They didn’t answer a damned thing or offer up a single solution.
The simple answer to the question of why the Congress or Senate can’t get ONE MEANINGFUL THING accomplished is this:  Republicans and Democrats care more about votes and getting themselves elected than about actually accomplishing anything.
The simple truth is that this sham – this broken, pathetic excuse for government – is a he said, she said game that’s been played for far too long.
The thing of it is – PEOPLE JUST DON’T CARE.  They are not sufficiently outraged. So, the real problem is this:
1. Our government is failing us and has continued to fail us.
2. The broken government is part of a corrupt, self-serving system that caters to the real ruling class.
3. Americans are not sufficiently outraged or they simply don’t understand.
Now, what do we do?
From here on out, I’ll focus on solutions.  Let me lay out the groundwork for a business plan of sorts.
1.       1. There must be an education and outreach component to this effort.  It needs to be the kind of leaderless, grass-roots  people-movement like that seen from the Occupy crowd.  By the way, what the hell happened with that?
2.       2. This education/outreach effort should be expertly focused and honed to find and cultivate great new leaders… think a combination of Ghandi, MLK, Bob Marley, and JFK.  Peaceful, prudent, and thoughtful but fearless and daring.  Maybe this effort will produce a new-age savior – a NEO of sorts? Someone that might be able to really reach and inspire millions.  Someone that might be longing to swallow the red pill.
a.       Put together a reading list and a movie / media list for the would-be Philosopher King, kinda like the Kung-Fu training NEO went through in the Matix.
b.      Organize an ALL-OUT Blitz kinda like these presidential ads that run every other minute here in Virginia.  Use all available resources – Facebook, Twitter, and whatever else - to drive traffic to places and people that tell it like it is.
3.       3. A real revolution must take place. An organized revolution carefully thought out in painstaking detail.  And for this, we should look to our past – The American Revolution.  The very next thing 60 Minutes ran served some inspiration. It was a piece about historian David McCullough.
4.       4. More solutions are coming… this is only the beginning.  I know an audience is out there. I can feel them now.
I know they’re afraid.  They’re afraid of us (Independents, Libertarians, Occupiers, Tea Partyers, and other Whackos) and afraid of change.
I don't know the future. I’m not writing this to tell you how this is going to end. I’m telling you how this is going to begin.
I'm going to bed now.
And then I'm going to show these people what The Man don't want them to see.
I'm going to show them a new world.
A world without [bullshit] rules and controls (there will be regulation) and borders and boundaries (but no more Mexicans).
A world where anything is possible.
Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.
