As the elections draw near, I usually like to be well informed about whom I’m voting for. Granted, sometimes it’s difficult to choose between two people you don’t know who are running for Board of Equalization, 4th district. I’ve dealt with the Board of Equalization… They’re like the Nazi’s but work for a different government, I think. They’re the ones responsible for collecting taxes, just in case you’re wondering. If it were me, I wouldn’t vote a single one of those bastards into office… maybe then it would just go away.
A lot of slander campaigns go on about who not to vote for, those baffle me, because all they’re doing is reminding me of a name. I forgot who said it, but the quote went something like this: “Say whatever you want about me, just spell my name right.”
The candidate that I would vote for no matter what would be the one who would just say “I want to make sure the government is doing the right thing so that you don’t have to worry about anything.” I’m sure that was called communism at some point, but the basic premise is I don’t want to be bothered with all the voting for this and reading about the scandals for that and everyone bitching and moaning about where the money is spent and how come something bad is happening and why are we being taxed for this and that and blah, blah, blah, whatever.
It’s like back when I was living in a house with 5-6 other guys just after college. We were all responsible for the rent and utilities. But, instead of distributing the responsibilities, I assumed control of everything, not because I’m a control freak or power hungry, it was because I didn’t want to wake up one morning and not have the water work, or come home and find a note on the door mentioning something about eviction. I did it simply because it was the safe way to make sure things went smoothly. When we had a roommate flake out, it was a quick and decisive booting out, but at least the lights stayed on.
On a side note, we usually burned anything that was left behind… beds, dressers, junk. It was fun.
Anyway, that’s how I want my government to work; I don’t want to have to worry about anything. I want to know that the electricity is working, the water is safe and the sky is blue. I just want to go about my daily life knowing that the government is doing the best job and not trying to bust my balls over it.
This isn’t a hard concept to follow, all the information we need is already present to make well-informed desicions. All we need now is a whole lot of politicians who understand this concept. Umm…
