Comment – I just can’t get my head around the fact that so many people think it’s a good idea to swear allegiance to their servants.

I read this comment on a Redacted video clip. Remember when “elected” officials were supposed to be public servants? That concept has, IMO, completely disappeared. We in the US don’t even really have the option of a “no confidence” vote or mechanism, and to question the biennial “elections” is merrily on its way to becoming “domestic violence”.
The public has become the servant. We must not criticize, we must not question, we must obey. We must not expect good things to happen for us; we must be grateful for crumbs. Old crumbs, at that. What our “public servants” do is now considered pretty much none of our business.
I may have no choice but to live under this bullshit, but do not ask me to vote for it or contribute to it or to pretend being given the choice between two corporately-chosen candidates for petty dictatorship is “democracy”. If anyone has any doubt that a Pelosi or a Biden or a Clinton or an AOC does not feel that they are exalted and better than “the people” – then they are either stupid or delusional. IMO, those people resent and disdain the people who they pretended to want to serve. I am sure the GOP is the same – it is just that no one I know personally has ever asked me to vacuously vote for the red no matter who.

A YouTube comment – we need new conspiracy theories – the old ones have all come true.

The established pattern is to ignore their constituents with the exception to go after your vote or money. Somewhere between the 1980’s and post 9/11, you could go to a “town hall” and speak your truth to their carefully guarding staff. I have videos from the early 90’s capturing my days of going to meetings when living in Central Florida. In fact, I was able to hear the audio with it, and funny thing – the exact issues could have been voiced today.
But, they CAN NOT be voiced today, and that has taken some strategy over the decades. That, and the same stuff described in Shock Doctrine.
It is STUNNING, isn’t it?
Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

There are likely all kinds of reasons why people continue to empower their abusers. I don’t care anymore.
All I know is I will not be one of them. And I will never again vote for a Democrat.
