Q.E.D.

 

The world is going to hell in a handbasket without passing "Go", and what focuses our minds? The web of lies of a stupid girl in a Bogota jail, the homecoming of a convicted drug smuggler, and the cocaine-sniffing habits of muscle-bound footballers whose IQs are displayed on the back of their jerseys.

They say that every country has the government it deserves which presupposes that our votes count. Which they don't because by the time we cast our votes, the powers that be have already decided who the “legitimate” nominees are going to be. They weed out candidates who are unacceptable to the existing powerbrokers. Those who are left are then “democratically” elected by us.

By this process of elimination we finish up with politicians who waste their time bickering about same-sex marriage, decriminalising drugs, anti-doping regimes in sports, and racial vilification laws, while the world is staring into the abyss.

If voting really made any difference, they’d have made it illegal a long time ago. Q.E.D., I think.
