What do you do when someone keeps telling you an unfunny joke?
The state of Florida keeps telling us the same unfunny joke every time it holds an election.
Well, we can take a page from the Founding Fathers who believed in firewalls.
Firewalls are good.
Firewalls prevent malicious forces like fires and viruses from spreading too rapidly, too widely.
Politically, this is a lesson that is lost on our genius leaders.
They have actually gone about trying to undo the firewalls that your Founding Fathers established centuries ago.
Did you know that your US senators were intended to be selected by your state legislature.
I’ll bet you didn’t.
I’ll also bet you don’t know anything about the 17th amendment which permits direct election of Senators.
Oh, yeah, baby. The doofuses who led us changed all that in the early 1900s.
Officially they did it because of tie votes and smoke-filled rooms. Apparently some states didn’t send a Senator to Congress because they were hopelessly deadlocked.
Unofficially they did it at the behest of Corporate America and our elites who needed a way to institute mob rule – a mob that they control via the media.
Unwilling to do the obvious which is to develop a tie-breaker system, the elites sold a crisis-whopper (today we call this a false flag) to the American people.
They juiced up the crisis-whopper by talking about Senators being chosen by cronies in smoke-filled rooms.
This is true, but they were your cronies in a smoke-filled room; you put them there when you elected them. They were working for you.
The direct election of Senators represents the removing of a fire wall which permits malicious forces to steal elections for Corporate America.
Do you see how?
If I place everybody’s vote into one giant barrel, it becomes easier for me to fudge votes by slipping my contaminated, manufactured votes into the barrel.
If, however, we have one-hundred smaller barrels separated by distance, and the representatives from those barrels are then placed in a smaller barrel that will select your Senator, it becomes extremely difficult for me to add in my bogus votes.
I’d have to go to one-hundred different localities to add votes, to get my guys elected. And that in itself might not guarantee the winner from the final barrel. I’d still have to corrupt that barrel, yet there are only one-hundred votes from that that barrel. I wouldn’t be able to add votes. I’d have to resort to buying people off.
But if I did, the people back home would know it, And such a representative would be subject to the voters when election time came around.
So, the Founding Fathers were pretty smart guys.
Theoretically, mankind should get smarter as the years go by.
But if you thought that, you would be wrong.
Not only does direct election of Senators allow the elites to fudge votes, it also gives you poorer representation.
Indirect election of Senators allows you to know the guy who knows the guy – which is not as good as knowing the guy but far better than never knowing the guy.
As it stands now, with direct election of Senators, you will NEVER know the guy. He is one and you are one of the millions. The only people your Senator knows are corporate elites, wealthy donors, the rich, and prominent Hollywood celebrities.
Your Senator – who now comes from a bubble and lives in a bubble – hasn’t met a regular person in decades. He’s probably scared shitless of you. You might have a gun.
Or worse, you might tell him an unfunny joke – like the truth.
