Why do Americans vote for people who screw them over?

© 2008

(I was asked this question and the following is my reply.)

They vote for whomever

their preacher

or television anchor

person tells them to

cast their ballet for

Instead of taking the time

to research themselves,

driven by

the Almighty Dollar


It is said

they vote for

the lesser

of two evils,

not realizing

they have still

chosen evil


Since the creation of

‘black box’ voting booths,

a computer reads your vote card,

that can be hacked

by any fourteen year old

with half a brain,

and voting is just a

‘going through the motions’


Another point to be

made on this thought

votes were to be

counted in a public forum,

(according to our constitution)

and now they’re counted

by a machine

behind closed doors.


America no longer

has a government

of the people,

for the people,

by the people


It is a government

of the elite,

making laws for the elite

that only applies

to the people,

by the elite


The rich get richer,

the poor get poorer

and the middle class

exists no longer

Americans losing

their homes,

their life savings,

and their wealth


Yet, not one congressman,

member of the executive office

or senator

has lost one dime

since the economy went bust.


We the people

have lost it all,

to the very people

we bailed out of bankruptcy,

giving CEO’s a fat bonus

for destroying our economy


Whittling away


and civil rights

a little at a time,

Strategy that

Adolph Hitler


to enslave his people


Privatized prisons

and FEMA camps

exist today

in America


They will only

continue to do so

as long as we,

The People

allow them to.



They are the few

we are the many,

one plus one

always equals two.

Do the math

and tell me

if united

we could win?
