RANT: Voting doesn’t matter; Opting out, aka secession, does

NJ 101.5 

Jim:

I own several houses in NJ. (I’m in the process, as are many older retiring new jersey-ites, of transitioning from NJ to NH via VA. Personally I’m being driven out by the high taxes. Most notably the Inheritance Tax.) I knew when the Storms hit that the taxpayer would be paying.

Can I ask you to consider some points?

(1) Were these towns self-insuring? This may have been a decision to save money in the short-term. To spend on other priorities. Why is the taxpayer being punished for a decision that they had no input to?

(2) “No taxation without representation.” What a joke. I have a summer family property in Seaside Heights. How do I vote for lower taxes? Or about anything they decide?

(3) In the recent election, the “takers” won. People love “free” stuff. But what are they going to “take” when those that “make” stop “making”?

Sorry to sound like an old grump. I did HANJ. I did GRIP. I tea partied.

I know you say that “secession was settled by the Civil War and isn’t going to happen” is unthinkable. I would suggest individuals can secede by just not cooperating. Remember Martin Luther King and Gandhi.

“Yes. In the end, you will walk out. Because 100,000 Englishmen simply cannot control 350 million Indians, if those Indians refuse to cooperate.” — movie Gandhi (1983)

Peaceful. Non-violent. Non-cooperation.

Sound familiar?

I have enjoyed your morning rant for many years and now listen from VA via the inet. Thanks for the shore updates. Fight the good fight.

p.s., ½ the folks don’t vote and the ½ that did vote doesn’t make a mandate. And remember if voting made any difference, they would let us do it. “Democracy” is two wolves and a lamb deciding what’s for dinner. You have demonstrated to me that VOTING in NJ is meaningless.

LIBERTY: A one-party system called by two names

Vote?
by Fred Reed

*** begin quote ***

Having a one-party system called by two names is a technically slick way of disenfranchising the public without their noticing. In a parliamentary system all manner of politics would gain expression in proportion to their prevalence in the population. With two identical parties, no dissenting view can ever gain office. A masterly dodge, this.

*** end quote ***

What a masterful plot to pull the wool over the eyes of “We, The Sheeple”!

Tweetle dum and tweetle dumber.

Ron Paul is the only one with a significant difference between the candidates. Scratch that, “ANY difference”.

I’m gradually coming around to what most folks in the USA do — NOT vote.

ERP!

POLITICAL: Are id requirements “racist”? No!

Asking For I.D. Before Voting Is ‘Racist’, But You Need A Govt. I.D. To Buy Drain Cleaner?
Posted on January 7, 2012 at 9:57pm by Mike Opelka Mike Opelka

*** begin quote ***

Got a clogged drain? Before you can buy that liquid drain cleaner, I need to see some ID.

*** and ***

If it is considered “racist” or “discrimination” to ask a voter for a photo ID before they are allowed to cast a ballot, why is it not racist to ask for a government issued ID card when you want to buy drain cleaner or pay for your gasoline with cash?

*** end quote ***

What stupidity?

The ONLY reason not to have voter id requirements is that the duopoly wants the ability to stuff the ballot box.

The Dead Old White Guys were right. Gooferment, politicians and bureaucrats are not to be trusted.

We’ve already seen “dead people” vote, more votes than people, and “math errors” in elections.

And, candidates don’t have to prove they’re eligible.

SO why vote?

Democracy is mob rule. Might as well turn the process over to the mob as we did with the Seventeenth Amendment.

Argh!
