55. Voting does nothing but make people feel they did their duty

We got Obama in and what's changed ? Not only are the Repugs obstructing his policies but so are the Dems, playing the game for their corporate sponsors.

When they have to pass legislation stating they cannot partake in Insider Trading, which is already a crime, and the bill was watered down at that;
it's a clear sign they're mostly corrupt. Congress whines about jobs and the economy yet legislation sits on the speakers desk.

Some say Carlin was a comedian, I say he was a genius for putting words to what many of us have known for decades.
"It's a big club, and we're not allowed in it." "Politicians, they're there to give us the illusion we have a voice."

The Dems aren't being bullied, they're part of the game, they want to keep their lush jobs too.

When billions are spent on elections and we have starving children in the richest nation in the world, something is wrong. Vets without jobs ? Pensions lost and CEO's making record bonuses ? It's pretty clear to many, the ones who are paying the bills for the nation while the few prosper.

Worry about the important things like family, enjoy life and grab for as many brass rings as often as you can.
