A brief letter to our elected officials

WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING? Seriously, do you have any clue at all about what’s going on? This country has become a giant, festering, pus filled, cancerous lesion on the ass of the world! It is a sucking chest wound; a vile, vitriolic cesspool of corruption; a massive, maggot-ridden turd with delusions of grandeur! How dare you say that you work for the people, that you advocate for the people, that you sympathize with the people. Bullshit! In order for that to be true you would have to be one of us. You would have to be in the trenches day in and day out. You would have to live like we do: hand-to-mouth. Do you think that you could do that for a lifetime and still say the system works? I challenge any one of you to live on minimum wage in a poor neighborhood with no health insurance for a year. I challenge you to take advantage of the wonderful government programs put in place to help the disadvantaged and the disenfranchised. Don’t all speak up at once.

I am calling you out. I am calling you thieves and liars! You are the lapdogs of corporate vampires who feed on the blood, sweat and tears of the innocent and the weak, both domestically and internationally. We are sold to the highest bidder, pimped-out and gang-banged by corporate thugs, way-laid and left to wonder why. To add insult to injury, blame for the crime is heaped upon us as victims. Aren’t you supposed to protect us? To keep us safe from the abuse of those that seek to do harm? To keep us out of the clutches of tyrants and madmen? What happened?

You failed us! You became part of the problem. The government became a co-conspirator in the rape of the people it was elected to care for. The government has “lost legitimacy”. You no longer have the confidence of the people. The system you try so hard to defend is broken. It is old, decrepit and should be condemned for unsafe living conditions. What would you do with a house that was beyond repair? Tear it down and build a new one.

So, again I ask: what the fuck are you doing? Whatever it is, stop it. It’s killing us. Either you are blind, deaf and dumb or you just don’t care. As a sergeant of mine was fond of saying: lead, follow or get the hell out of the way! And as it is blatantly obvious that your leadership skills are severely lacking, I think you should choose a different option.


reform or revolution.

To the question of reform or revolution, I answer revolution. I find it hard to conceive the successful rehabilitation of a system that is inherently flawed, a system that allows for and ,indeed, promotes the subjugation of the weak based on an outmoded concept of monetary value. Reform, at this point, is tantamount to applying band-aids to a bullet ridden corpse. Democracy has devolved into a joke with a fatal punchline. Literally. The electoral process is merely lip service designed to fool the masses into believing that we actually have a voice. The political system has become a corporation unto itself run by parasites and thieves. Reform is touted by the capitalist kingpins that want to remain in power to continue the policies of imperialism and domination-by-fear, to line their pockets with the profits of war. In each and every election the word is bandied about like an anthem, false promises and lies are injected like drugs into the veins of the masses, sweet words are whispered into the ears of the desperate to keep us docile and unaware. Reform is the catchword of the elite. It is nothing more than placatory sentiment, scraps from the table. It is an enticement for us to roll over and play dead, to remain willing slaves to the machine. Revolution is a new day. It is an opportunity to get things right, an opportunity to build a society together as one people, not as separate classes. It is an opportunity to put the best of ourselves into practice. What is the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. It is time we reclaimed our sanity. A complete revolution, from psyche to physical reality, is the only way we can survive. It is the only way to save the world.
