I was sitting in a cheesy Chinese restaurant yesterday after a gig. I saw
how far a politician will go to get a vote and it again made me sick.. but
first this will piss off allot of you liberals and conservatives but here
goes as I am an American...
I believe that people that come to the USA for the BETTERMENT should and
must learn to speak ENGLISH.. We as a nation should not learn to speak
Spanish... I personally know a little Spanish from high school and college
but that is irrelevant.
There is a biblical story that talks about the Tower of Babble.. I am sure
you all know the story about how after people were speaking many languages
nothing got done...
I am from New York City originally but live in Austin and Denton Texas
now.... the state is over run by what I assume are illegal aliens and many
places do not speech English....
Now back to the main reason I am saying that many Politicians will do
anything for a vote.
So I was in the Chinese place yesterday,, and they had the TV on. .. The
news was on.. And because of the coming hurricane they have the presidents
brother Jeb on the tube... now he was not moving his lips and being over
dubbed with Spanish.. He had a separate news conference where he just spoke
That is pandering.. it is doing the people that have come here no
service.... whether here legally or illegally... if they spoke English the
whole machine would run smoother IMHO... but many refuse to learn English..
my grandfather came to the USA through Ellis Island in NY in 1914 legally..
he came from Europe.. but he learned to speech English and got a job in the
USA and moved up the proverbial ladder and was very successful...
Why cant our politicians stop PANDERING just to get a vote.. And both
parties are Guilty of this behavior..

There are term limits. They are called elections. If I want to
re-elect the bastard or bitch that's my business. That's called
democracy. If you think I'm too stupid to make up my own mind and you
feel as though you must place protection "limits" for my own good, well
you can just go to fucking hell. Don't EVER tell me who I can vote for
and who I can't. Is any of this beginning to sink in. If you're too
stupid to know how to vote if your politician has served too many
years, that's your problem. Not mine. People have died for the right
to vote for whomever they want and you sit here willy-nilly and dismiss
it. Are you CRAZY? <
What you say seems to make sense, but there are just a couple of things
First point is that our system of government is supposed to be a
*republic* not a democracy. A democracy is a wonderful device
for politicians to stay in power. Just add the part of the people you
can "fool all of the time" to that part you can "fool some of the time"
and you're elected! Note that in a democracy there are no minority
rights. Majority rules! It's so interesting the media has been
hammering away at that word "democracy" for years and years now. So
much so that nobody even questions it anymore.
Don't worry I won't tell you who to vote for. Hell, thanks to the
McCain "campaign reform" law, unless I am "official media" I can't even
tell you of a candidate's VOTING RECORD 90 days before an election
without committing a crime! AND to stay on our OT subject, the supreme
court recently upheld this law!
But even the advantages of encumbent name recognition and secret voting
records isn't enough for these politicians who would be kings. The
Bush administration has pushed through an electronic voting law that
forces all states to adopt untraceable and un-auditable electronic
voting machines (supposedly so that the Florida fiasco isn't repeated,
but really to open the flood gates to "managed" elections). If you
think elecronic voting without any paper records is safe, please accept
my standing offer of showing how easy it is to manipulate electronic
voting software. I will show you all the details for the traditional
suitcase full of money. :)
Bottom line: Power-mongering politicians aren't even satisfied with
democracy! They want assured power. I guess they figure that even
though they have encumbent name reconition, all the media so-called
"news" and even tweeks on the voting software on their side to sway a
"democratic" majority, they still are scared shitless that some wild
shit like YOU might come along who won't vote the way he's told.
....Yeah, better make sure that doesn't happen!
