Survey Says....

One of the things we've been tracking lately is the plethora of "surveys" showing who's ahead and who's moving in which direction, politically speaking. As though such things had any bearing on reality.

The most laughable moment came when the junior Senator from NY "slipped" in the polls. Although it is just possible that some people are waking up and realizing just how evil that woman is, one discounts her at one's peril. This whole Kabuki theatre being staged by the "bi-factional ruling party"* is designed for the sole purpose of making it look like you have a choice, when the outcome was decided long ago. As one person pointed out: when you own both horses in a two-horse race, the outcome doesn't really matter. Make no mistake about it -- no matter who sits on the throne, the puppet masters never change.

This, of course, is in addition to the fact that we live in a bureaucracy. Your life is not under your control, it is in the hands of nameless, faceless, unaccountable, unelected bureaucrats who reign with caprice. Even the elected "leaders" have little influence over things. Ronald Reagan ran on a platform that included abolishing the Department of "Education", and that behemoth is larger, more costly, and more powerful than ever.

God help America.


(*Hat tip to Vox Day for that one.)

I hope you and Vox are wrong, but it's looking more and more like - barring a miracle - that lesbian is going to be ruining the not-so-free-anymore world.
