(Truthstream Media) You know, Mark Twain once said that if voting made any difference, they wouldn’t let us do it.
It’s probably even more true today than when he first said it. Nevertheless, every four years this phony façade persists that someone’s listening to the voice of the people, that this is a Constitutional Republic where someone, somewhere cares about who We the People want to run things even though we’re to the point that a scientific study which considered 20 years of data showed that it simply isn’t true.
We stopped in the middle of the night in nowhere New Mexico on a road trip a few weeks ago and found this bizarre, creepy rest stop to be a lot like voting for president in America every four years.
The facilities were filthy. The windows had wire grids on them, like the kind you’d expect to find in a mental facility where they are worried people might try to escape. Everything smelled. The toilet seats were missing. Scary people were hanging out in the shadows. It’s the kind of place your mom warned you as a kid never to go to, especially after dark.
Under the glaring orange lights and amid numerous signs informing us we were under constant video surveillance, a large sign read, “WE APPROVE OF THIS REST AREA” — not really a question — next to two buttons — one for “yes” and one for “no”.
Just like voting for president in America: It’s a broken, dirty, reeking, filthy, totalitarian system where they watch you pointlessly flush your vote down the toilet choosing between two bullshit options that everyone knows deep down inside will ultimately never… change… anything.
