A Political Manifesto

Okay, it’s not really a manifesto; more a statement of belief.

Or disbelief, as the case may be.

I am a political atheist.

I don’t believe in any political party. Not that they do not exist; we should be so lucky. Rather, that none of them exist to serve their constituents. They exist to stuff their coffers and pass their laws and pat each other on the back telling themselves they know what’s better for us than we do.

[ed. note: no, this is not that kind of manifesto. I am not moving to a hut in Montana and mailing letters to government officials/agencies.]

Be that as it may, this is the best system we have. It’s the only system we have. Therefore, we must work within it. Even if it is bullshit.

So get out and vote. Hell, vote often.

Even if the one party wants to blow up the world and another wants to appease it and still another wants to make it illegal to breathe on odd number days.

At least if you vote, you can officially complain about the state of the government.

At least until the next election.
