The Happy Slave

This is my surrender to the Powers that Be, who wish we all were just happy little slaves, tooling along without a care in the world, doing what our better-educated masters tell us to do, not daring to step out of line. I'm so bad at surrender...

I'm an old-fashioned Get-out-of-my-face-atarian. So long as the gubmint left me alone, I had no problems with it. Gubmint wants to run my life, so I'm doing something about it. (Not just blogging, either.)

Electing LEADERS?

So, it's coming up, we're going to elect some of our leaders in a couple of weeks, right? WRONG. In America, we do not elect our leaders, we select our servants. Somewhere in our past, America has subscribed to a dangerous delusion, that our elected officials are our masters. We have allowed ourselves to become saddled with the most powerful monarchy and nobility that human history has ever seen. We are willing to give personal power to a president greater than that ever had by any titular Emperor of any empire. This lunacy must stop. We must stop treating our elected officials like public masters. They are and always have been public servants. It's time we started reminding them of this fact. Only slaves must immediately fall in line behind their masters. Only slaves must defer to their masters merely because they are the masters. Are we slaves? Are we worse than slaves--are we willing slaves? Are we the political heirs to the sycophants of the Roman imperial court or are we the political heirs to the Founding Fathers of the United States of America?
