Day606 Thursday 04/26/12

ran 3.6 miles
Governor Jesse Ventura said it best when he made the analogy "Politics in America today are identical to pro wrestling.  And what I mean by that is in front of the cameras and the public we all hate each other...yet behind the scenes we are all friends going out to dinner together...Democrats and Republicans aren't really opposed to one another."

I think in an underhanded sort of way he is basically calling you and me stupid, gullible, ignorant, and so distanced from reality that we actually think we can make a difference with merely a single vote.  I completely agree with Governor Ventura's assessment of calling it for what it is, but all we, as average Americans, walk away with is a sense of "hmmm, that's a good analogy and it makes perfect sense in an upside-down sort of way, but that's just politics".

We all go on thinking only of the tasks for tomorrow with no sense of consequence for the larger horizon before us that keeps getting closer and closer.  

Things only feel normal right now.  Our senses and perceptions are massaged with information that have a placebo effect on the temperament of our rationale.  In simple terms, if the United States of America was geographically constructed in the shape of a human body, China would own an entire arm right up to the shoulder and they would have invested interests in some of the more important vital organs like the heart and kidney of America.  They would want to drill the mind of America.  And what is so ironic about how helpful China is to our debt woes is the fact that they are the international beacon of Communism.  They are the paradigm of everything we have fought to defend from America.  But we are figuratively selling American limbs and organs to them just so we can keep our necks above our sea of debt.

I'm not excited about Romney because this election will be as premanufactured as a wrestling bout between John Cena and Triple H.  And because of that, I feel gypped, but that is why I write this blog and run these miles.  I simply want something real that no government could ever possibly deliver.  I want them to leave me alone and to show others how valuable being left alone and not reliant on the government is.

But, if that were to happen their power to control would cease to exist.  Their purpose would be devalued and their egos deflated.  Their statures would crumble and their strength would diminish.  Americans and the small businesses and corporations that employ them could could call the government's bluff.  Maybe one day.  The first step is getting Barack Hussein Obama out of the Oval Office.

207.9 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day241.
