The Cycle Continues?


So, here's how I see it.

Right now the cycle is in the "democrats in power and pissing people off mode." The republicans are doing what they usually do in that mode - Talking the talk. This cycle has been going 'round and 'round for as long as I have been alive. When the republicans have power the cycle is that they are pissing people off and the democrats are talking the talk. And so on and so on and .......

Right now the republicans, in Virginia anyway, seem to be making some inroads and may pull out an upset in November. Only time will tell. McAwful is certainly not doing himself any favors with the stupid shit he is saying. My guess is that he, and the democrats, have gotten so cocky now that they think they can say anything and not pay the price for it. Again, time will tell. But let's assume that Youngkin and the R's do win and change the look of the GA in Virginia. I know a lot of you will be dancing in the streets.

However, as I see it, nothing will change. The cycle will simply start it's next, predictable phase. For all the talk from the Republicans they will DO NOTHING! The government will not shrink, taxes will still be wasted on buying votes instead of what they are supposed to be used for, the government will simply shift to spending money on things that the R's like, until the next phase of the cycle, when the D;'s will be back in power. And so it goes.

This happens, because the vast majority of voters, once their guys are in office, get lazy, complacent, and expect the government to take care of them. As long as "their guys" are in power they just expect that everything will be just fine. And thus, the cycle begins anew. True liberty, real freedom, the kind born of personal responsibility and vigilance, will once again take a backseat to party loyalty and the hope that "their party" will make everything alright.

As long as we continue to rely on a party mechanism to provide "freedom" we are never going to have freedom, as our Founders envisioned. Change my mind.
