I support citizens who desire to become elected leaders. I refuse to support politicians! Worse, I detest with every fiber of my being politics in its many forms. I hate politics and those who engage in politics from business to the military, from the classroom to the boardroom, and from the private sector to the government sector! Elections matter until they are stolen and become a farce by those who desire to rule, and this is why California, the recall election of that detestable politician Gavin Newsom, and politics matter to every single person in America. In the US Navy, when my department officer told me to “Play the game,” he meant to play politics. To the minions of hell who delight in playing politics, I have found being honest, forthright, and valiant is better, and you will not win!
We begin with a review, for too often, people think they know the meaning of a word, and the entire etymology of that word is where the trouble lay. Politics is one of these terms that comes with lots of baggage, tons of hidden layers, and enough plastic to choke the world’s oceans! We must be clear about what politics is to recognize when political animals are trying to commit acts of political villainy.
What is Politics?
Please note that emphasis has been added to key phrases to support knowledge of the complete etymology and enhance awareness. Frankly, I would be ashamed to be called a politician. Being called a politician means I possess a derogatory approach to my constituency and am only concerned with seeking power, usually through devious means. As a Noun, politics are “the activities associated with the governance of a country or other area, especially the debate or conflict among individuals or parties having or hoping to achieve power.”
- “The activities of governments concerning the political relations between countries.”
- “The academic study of government and the state.”
- “Activities within an organization that aimed at improving someone’s status or position and are typically considered to be devious or divisive.”
- “A particular set of political beliefs or principles.”
- “The assumptions or principles relating to or inherent in a sphere, theory, or thing, especially when concerned with power and status in a society.”
As a Verb, politic/s is derogatory and is defined as “engaging in political activities.”
From Old French Politique “political,” Latin from Greek Politikos, and Politẽs “citizen” and Polis “city.” Thus, we have described the term politics in all its glory and inhumanity. Is the term more understood?
Politics is a descriptive tool used to identify certain human activities where power is sought, and devious means and divisive gestures are employed to obtain that power. Every action tied to securing power through devious means and divisive gestures is politics or political, which means derogatory. For those needing more, derogatory is “showing a critical or disrespectful attitude.” Thus, at the root, politicians by their very name and nature are derogatory towards those who elect them into power.
What are Elections?
Elections are the formal process for selecting another for an office, leadership, or choosing a person or favorable course of action. Key to elections is that they are formal, which means there are rules, laws, guidelines, regulations, and penalties for the officers selected to monitor the election process. One of the most egregious actions of the 2020 elections was breaking the rules, laws, and regulations of the formal election process in the primaries, which then extended into the actual election day results. Why bring up the 2020 Federal Election farrago? Because as of 25 August 2021, the same pattern is occurring in California, again! Ballots are going missing, ballots are being dumped in trash cans, mail-in ballots without signatures, fraudulent ballots are being injected into the counts, etc., ad nauseam ad infinitum.
The 2020 Federal Election farrago proved that through fraud, deceit, and the purchase of local elected officials, elections could be thrown to whichever candidate had sufficient money to pay for the politics needed to win. Where are integrity and honesty in the election process; they left for the Jersey shore, got mugged, and are lying under a “John Doe” in some backwater hospital on life support. I support Larry Elder for Governor of California, but I do not think the Newsom Political machine will allow him a fair and honest election opportunity!
Thus, the problem for ALL of AMERICA right now! Primaries are coming, political futures hang in the balance, and the media know that the liberal madness and tyranny from COVID-Mandates has left a bitter taste in every person’s mouth. The polls show no politician being trusted, and if the political machines are to keep paying dividends to special and private interests, then those investing in their favorite politician are going to have to pony up serious cash to buy the elections officials right now to protect the sleaze in office from the school board and Mayor to the president!
The elections in a representative government must remain sacrosanct, or representative government fails! Yet, do you honestly trust the results of any of the elections since 2000 and the “Chad” fiasco in Florida? I am not asking you to support any candidate; this platform does not advocate for or against any candidate. I advocate for people; I advocate for liberty and the health of the American Republic. Elections matter, voting is important, but politics is hurting America, and the citizenry needs to understand this concept.
Tell me, after the last two weeks of being ignored by the US President, with American Citizens being placed last, if at all, on the priority list in Afghanistan, do you feel represented by your government? California, let’s discuss some truths; your politicians are some of the most hated and despised politicians in the American political system; they win with the lowest approval ratings and polling standards, time after time. Sure, these politicians gerrymandered the living daylights out of their districts, but even then, they should have lost a long time ago. Have you ever stopped to ask yourself why these hated imbeciles keep winning office in Sacramento and Washington DC?
California, how did Governor Moonbeam ever make a comeback in your state? How did Newsom the loser ever keep his job as Mayor, let alone win the seat as governor? I watched those elections; I keep asking myself how, why, where do the votes come from? Then the Federal Election of 2020 occurred. It became apparent; the patterns of winning in California have leaked across America. The same way to win keeping politicians in office in Chicago and Las Vegas moved to perfection in California and then across America. Fraud, deceit, skullduggery, gerrymandering, and the political purchasing of local election officials and attorneys, judges, and other easily bribed public officials.
Does the derogatory nature, the hatred, and the duplicity of the politician shine through from those holding elected office right now? Is the definition more clear and the need for sundering politics from government more apparent? Is it clear why politics should not be part of government?
Nobody is “Too BIG to Fail,” even the government, and it is past time for the elected officials and the bureaucrats dependent upon the political machine to begin to fear an open ballot box and an angry electorate! It is time to ask who paid the postmen to dump the ballots? Who paid the government employees to shuffle the ballots, copy ballots, and accept fraudulent votes? It is past time to question the legitimacy, integrity, and informational security of the electronic voting machines and have transparency in voting. It is past time for mandatory ID, one vote, one ID, and a biometric tag to protect against fraudulent ballots, stuffed ballot boxes, and mailed-in ballot duplicity.
You, the American citizen, are needed! Awake and Arise! Find your strength and stand before it is too late and your country has fallen an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle while you slept! History will judge you and me for what we do and say right now; let them record we did not allow the American Experiment to fail on our watch; we fought back against the tide of tyranny and oppression and won!
