Tomorrow another clown gets their scepter. A mass of constituents will take to the mall to celebrate, while another mass takes to the streets to protests vehemently. The goal of both masses of people is an immediate seismic shift in daily life that will bring a more positive outlook for the future – which is a human want regardless of what authority figure they pray to. Everything happening tomorrow is reaction, and is based on the tear of division between the two heads of state (which have been dumbed down to the colors red and blue for those who continue to react to the complete lack of public education by doing absolutely nothing about it).
Here is the problem: 57.9% of eligible voters actually voted in 2016. We all have smartphones with voice recognition and/or we know how to use a calculator because simple multiplication is impossible thanks again to our lovely school system; let’s do some math. 42.1% of eligible voters didn’t give a shit, literally. They stayed home, watched reruns, masturbated, went hunting or fishing, watched porn, rode their bike, and did not go to the polls. They are indifferent, and they don’t give one shit.
The way I see it, in order to actually change the way things are (roughly) 67.1% of people need to change, 155,374,493 people.
There were 231,556,622 total eligible voters. Let us also keep in mind 97,485,337 didn’t care either way for whatever reason, i.e. they stayed home and didn’t give a shit. Every election for the last as long as I have been alive ended with a close tie, one of the two parties winning by a marginal vote – which is also great television – so it really doesn’t take much to change, just convincing the people that don’t care to care.
Please and by all means protest, cause a peaceful uprising, speak your voice and do whatever you can to work toward making this a better place regardless of what you think that should be. However, if you do nothing to engage the 97,485,337 who do not care either way, who were complacent, who did nothing, then you will continue to be less than one third fighting against less than one third while almost half stand by not giving one shit… and I don’t have to tell you that nothing is going to change when half of the people don’t give a shit.
Now before you label me a Trump supporter or Hilary supporter, I am neither.
Personally I think both parties are completely full of shit and do not care about any of us at all in any way, they care about money and power and fame. My solution is simple, vote in every election you possibly can for the person you have never heard of, or if we’re lucky, Mother Nature will step up and do a little cleaning before we even get another chance to vote.
Enjoy, and look up coup d’état.
