schizophrenia comes to the americas …

… or why liberals consistently vote conservatively

schizophrenia: a complex mental disorder that makes it difficult to:
tell the difference between real and unreal experiences
think logically
have normal emotional responses,
behave normally in social situations
as the illness continues, problems with thinking, emotions and behavior develop, including:
strongly held beliefs that are not based in reality (delusions)
hearing or seeing things that are not there (hallucinations)
problems paying attention
thoughts “jump” between unrelated topics ( “loose associations”)
bizarre behaviors
social isolation
anxious, angry or argumentative
false beliefs that others are trying to harm you or your loved ones

images disclaimer: i am not a doctor, nor do i play one on t.v., but i am an opinionated, angry citizen, so i figure, hey, close enough huh? … and i presently live in alberta, canada, which for decades (yup, frign decades!) has voted as conservatively as any red state, all the while suckin’ up all the free health care, family assistance, free education, unemployment insurance and social programs we can …
think of alberta as sweden with sarah palin as leader and y’all kinda get it …
we’re kinda texas north without the pistols (we much prefer a nice hunting rifle or shotgun over an AK, but hey, to each their own) …
our lives are completely controlled by the oil industry and it’s cronies, thugs, crooks and philanderers, and we too have our “pants pulled up to here” and complain full-time about or government and it’s constant attacks on “we the people” …
and yet, election after election my whack-a doodle neighbors keep voting in the same slimy, self-serving fear mongering pricks that run “insert red state name here” …
then the day after the election we all go back to bitchin’ about the government full time … makes no effin’ sense to me …
don’t even get me started on the new pipeline of the america’s that mr.obama is about to sign us all up for (more on that soon, i promise ya’ … grrrr…) …
and no, i personally have never voted conservatively, so before ya’ send me any emails yelling about “gettin’ the government i deserve”, hear me out …
and then tell me i deserve this, or that anyone else does for that matter …
i vote against these clowns each and every time i’m allowed, so NO, i don’t deserve the government i got …
and that is why i feel i am eminently qualified to scream and yell about this shit all i please … i only wish more would …
is everyone comfortably seated? …
good, then we’ll begin …


first off, let’s get one thing straight, we’re all liberals …
we all want the government to work for us as opposed to us working for them …
so why do we keep electing these so called-conservatives? …
why do the voters of  the americas vote like morons on crack? …
repeatedly? …
why do we as a people tend to consistently vote against our own best interests? …
i have come to the conclusion that the whole god damned place is suffering from a government/media induced paranoid schizophrenia …
with an giant, adult sized helping of good old fashioned small dick insecurity, impatience and greed … what a mix …
the perfect mix actually if you are “the man” … so, why do good, caring, empathetic, concerned citizens turn their backs repeatedly on their better angels and vote for less and less control over our own lives and the lives of our children and grandchildren? …
and don’t give me that i can’t make a difference, the problem’s too big crap, that’s bullshit and you all know it …
that’s just laziness on parade and you all know that’s true too …
that way of thinking makes about as much sense as a jersey shore think tank …
or a charlie “winning” sheen presidential run …
some shit is just wrong …
no matter how much lipstick ya’ put on a pig, a pig is still a pig …
and a lie is just a lie …
between the faux noises of the world’s million-decibel hate ‘n’ smear, the rudy “noun-adjective-911” giulianis , the government officials who only serve their corporate masters, and the testicularly-challenged main stream press, we have started to buy into the fear and loathing these self-serving ideologues and grifters have served up …
we seem to have the attention span of a lohan at a counseling session …
and the stick-to-it-iveness of an eight year old doing homework once his x-box or ps3 loads …
and then the masses walk into that porta-ptty styled voting booth and pull that lever for four more years of the same crap they just barely made it through …
then they step outta that same booth and proclaim to anyone who will listen “see, made no difference at all, oh my, whatever shall i do” … arrrggghhh …
wake the fuck up peeps before ya’ toss every last better angel in ya’ on the trash heap and just completely buy into the whole laissez-fairytale lunacy these guys are trying to sell ya’ …
yer’ setting yerself up to have the whole place run by people who are convinced that global warming is a hoax, that creationism is a real science, that we need even more religion in government and that jesus rode a raptor …
really? …
this is who ya’ want running the whole show? …
these asshats have successfully divided the place into groups that hate and fear each other over skin color, religious beliefs, sexual preference, economic status, social values and out and out lies …
you’d think that that would be nearly impossible to do in a place that prides itself on it’s being free in every way, a place that prides itself on being a melting pot …
more like a pot of hate stew these days …
and why do they do this? …
why divide their own nations up like this? …
simple …
it’s far easier to distract people from who the real bad guy is when they are convinced that the real enemy within is their neighbor or their own family …
any ten year old who’s ever played an online strategy game will understand it …
it’s called divide and conquer …
and a distracted army is an army with no chance of victory …
and we people are that distracted army …
we’re so busy hating our neighbors and those “different” people up that street that we never for a moment stop and realize who the real enemy actually is …
it’s the lying, hypocritical thieves we keep putting in charge of our well being and our children’s future …
even the ten year old playin’ his game realizes (and quickly too) that the so called ally that he trusted to have his back, who screws him over to win is not his ally and ditches “that dood” as an ally forever, never to be trusted again …
so why can’t we take the smarts of above-mentioned ten year old and learn the lesson? … are we all stupid? …
are we all dumber than a 5th grader? …
this isn’t some jeff foxworthy game show …
it’s our lives peeps …
should we maybe let ten year olds run the show? …
it’s simple folks, we’ve let these ideologues do our reasoning, investigation and come to “our” conclusions for us …
and we have let them convince us that in nations built by immigrants and based on the belief that it’s our differences that make us strong and unique as nations. that immigrants or anyone who looks, acts, thinks or believes anything even the slightest bit different that we do is the real enemy …
think about that for just a second now …
and how do they accomplish this stretching of reality and history? …
by constantly rewriting that history and stoking the fears and phobias of the low information voter …
by repeating the same bullshit over and over and over again, until many start to believe that “hey i heard it on t.v., it must be true …
this is the schizophrenia that our nations suffer from …
and it is destroying everything that our fathers and their fathers, and their fathers, etc. fought and died for for the last couple of hundred years …
this artificially induced schizophrenia leads us to believe that we are under attack and therefore must stand up now and fight back before it’s all too late, and that time is running out fast, so we must fight now! …
and the really sad and pathetic and dangerous irony in all of this is that it is true, we are under attack, and we must fight back before it’s too late and we must act now … the part that is a lie is in who the enemy is …
it is not those “different” people or “the “other party”, it’s the liars we elect and their corporate masters …
and the war is being waged against us, the poor, the middle class workers, the sick and elderly … anyone who can’t fight back …
and it’s working …
these are the same guys who brought ya’ slavery, serfdom and child labor and they’re at it still … ya’ see, we have already had a number of “wars” and many, many hard fought battles to get rid of slavery, servitude and income inequality and all the shackles that went with it (and those wars are nowhere near done folks) …
and now that these guys can’t get african americans to do the work for no remuneration, and the latino community has had enough of it, they have turned they attention toward the poor …
after all, if ya’ strip away the last 50 or so years of strides made by unions and ya’ get rid of minimum wage laws and child labor laws and any regulations on business or the environment, and ya’ suppress just the right votes, then hey, ya’ get rid of that pesky middle class once and for all and we can all just go back to letting these “plantation owners” have their way with it all again …
just like the good old days …
this isn’t about race, or religion or where yer’ from, or who you choose to sleep beside, it’s about profit and nothing more …
it’s about the uber rich wanting to stay that way, forever and ever …
they love to slap a bible in one hand and wrap themselves in a flag while they rail about class warfare when in fact it is they who are committing said warfare …
all the while driving the whole place over a cliff and turning it into being nothing more than a banana republic …
a few with a lot using and abusing the many with nothing …
ya’ wanna feed yer’ kids? …
or live indoors? …
then you’ll take what they give ya’ …
which, if ya’ look around the world, or in your history books folks, won’t be much …
is that really the american/canadian dream? …
is that really freedom? …
is that really what our forefathers fought and died for …
i, for one am not convinced that it is …
but then again, i didn’t vote for these guys …
did you? …
will you? …
yer’ future and mine is in your hands …
and that of yer’ kids and their kids …
the choice is yours …
and you have the internet …
google something soon and find your truth, before it truly is too late …
once again, thanks fer’ yer’ time …
peace …
later …

  1. I was with you until “google to find the truth” part. I’d say that actually part of the problem is that there is enough misinformation online that it’s just way too easy to find “the truth” you like. It seems that some people need be just spoon-fed the actual verifiable facts and then tested on their knowledge before being allowed to vote. Presenting google as a solution is the same as letting a schizophrenic pick their own medicine.

    • lol…couldn’t agree more my friend…
      I do sometimes give the masses too much credit when it comes to their ability to discern facts from fox…but, at least by doing some “googling” peeps can, if they choose to, get several sides to a story … as for the testing before voting, I often come to the same saddening conclusion…come to think of it, marriage should maybe be the same…lolol
