Murder The Government

leave a comment »

Lots and lots of voting going today in the wonderful country that is the United States. Voting is ridiculous these days. All the wacky TV ads. All the name calling. All the irrelevant facts about candidates’ personal lives. All the STUPID celebrities abusing their status to push an initiative. It’s all very tiring and annoying. But more than anything, I think voting has become childish. As a child voting is reduced to popularity contests. As an adult, I thought this would change and that voting would become this intellectual task that was actually stimulating. It has not changed thusly – at least not for me.

Maybe it’s the rebellious teenager inside of me trying to resurrect itself, but sometimes I think the best option for the United States would be to murder the government. But I know, as do you, that that would be irresponsible (to say the least). So get out there and vote – maybe your actions at the polls will yield the same results of murder…

NOFX – Murder The Government

What politics should be like – Stephen Colbert on C-SPAN

leave a comment »

Stephen Colbert exhibits what I think would improve our political system: humor, back-handed compliments, and sarcasm. If all politicians were like this, perhaps more people would actually care and listen. Even the politicians whom he was addressing seemed more entertained than usual, perhaps they were actually listening as well.

USA. Number One.

Be Rad. Enjoy.
