I have avoided making long post in other people's political discussions because I didn't want it to appear that I was attacking them or their beliefs. I enjoy political discussions but being my heart is no longer tied to a political party I have a drastically different outlook than most people. I believe in the non-aggression principal (or axiom) that is to say that I believe it is wrong to initiate the use of force to make someone do something or stop them from doing something that isn't harming or likely to harm others. Unless they have first initiated, or threatened to initiate force that threatens or harms someones Liberty, leave them the hell alone. Basically, leave me alone and I'll leave you alone. Initiate violence, to include credible threats of violence, toward me, and mine, and I'll defend myself with every and all means available. Given my beliefs I've effectively just about become almost completely politically agnostic. By politically agnostic I mean I have come to realize that our vote means very little, if anything at all. Money is where the real political power lies. The advertising, and less legitimate influence, it buys is what really drive elections and favors from whoever wins them. I also see very little actual difference, in actions, between the "R"s and "D"s. Yes, the "R"s tell pleasant lies (small government, individual liberty, etc.) but they never really follow through. Even when they had majorities in both the senate and house along with W in the whitehouse, they didn't follow through on their rhetoric. I believe elections are just a way to give you the illusion that your vote matters and that you have some real say in the political process. I think the events of the last year have exposed how the parties really control the options the people have a chance to vote on. Keeping people involved, and believing in, the corrupt system that uses them as little more than tax cattle, is a distraction to keep you from looking at the man behind the curtain. I have a serious question for the MSGO get out the vote crowd: Do ya'll really think there is a chance that Hillary has a chance to win Mississippi? Really? Well, I don't. That being tha case, I believe, ya'll are really getting worked up over nothing. If you think Hillary has a chance in Mississippi please realize that Carter was the last Dem to carry the state and he barely did it. Before him it was Adlai Stevenson in 1956! (1960 was a whole different mess for the state that is worth reading about if you care to look it up.) The real fight will be in swing states. If you really wanted to be in that fight giving to the campaigns, or their PACs, would likely be the only real way to do it. Clinton could possibly win the general, at this point, I seriously doubt she will, but like I said; I believe there is no chance in hell that she'll carry Mississippi. While I'm tempted to stay home in November, I currently plan on voting Libertarian Party in the general. It's my way of supporting the party that is the closest to my political beliefs. I'm far more extreme in my anti-government beliefs than them but they are as close to my belifs as anyone you'll find on a ballot. If I thought Hillary had a snowball's chance in hell of winning Mississippi I would probably have to hold my nose and vote the the douche (Trump) as opposed to the Turd Sandwich (Clinton). Please don't missunderstand me. I actually dislike Trump less than the other candidates the GOP had running but only because he is the outsider and is upsetting the establishment apple cart. Now, in spite of all of the above, I must say this has been a very entertaining year for national politics. I was hoping for two contested conventions and a real mess but I'm still hoping something happens to cause the Clinton/Sanders thing to go all the way to the convention.
