Oh, the madness, the pure addiction. Politicians are addicted to their megalomania, pure raw power money and greed. We political news junkies are hooked to politics like a heroine junkie. We can’t get enough. It can get in your brain and take over. It drives you mad with passion and frustration. Then we go at it tearing each other apart. The media feeds into it. The media perpetuates the insanity. They know they offer a far more addictive product than the tobacco companies, but nobody will say it out loud. They truly profit from human suffering and tragedy. They hold more power than presidents. CNN, FOX, ABC all have the power to make or break political careers and the people flock to the bias. They push the bias for ratings and this is done for the simple drive for advertising dollars. Truth is relative to them and they don’t care if they destroy you or profit from your tragedy or despair. They only want the buck. Journalistic integrity is a myth and a joke, and we are all addicted.
Politicians are the biggest bottom feeders. They not only thrive off of despair and problems of others they legislate and dictate accordingly finding ways to profit off of the people directly, not off of the advertisers who are exploiting the media. Politicians offer us nothing of value besides oppression. Then they lie steal and cheat to make their image look good according to which way the wind blows. We are addicts eating it up. It controls us and we let it divide us. It causes animosity between neighbors and fellow citizens. We still cling to these distorted lied and biases as if it were scripture, and we grow angry at our fellow man in response.
Everyone wants to force their will upon the other. That doesn’t sound too far off from rape.
Now the problem is that it just gets to us political junkies. We go nuts, we become obsessed. It drives every part of us. We need to completely alter the way we approach this all, but are unable to give up this most addictive of addictions. Nobody has a 12 step program for us yet, so we are stuck with it.
Then there are those who would alter our political perspective for personal gain and want. We scream free speech for a chance to tie your turkey into a knot at the expense of the women we victimize. Now I support free speech excessively, but masturbation is no reason to get political. That’s just a sad pervert. You must analyze why it is you even have an interest in the whole mess.
I need to go shoot up. I need a fix so I’m off to read the news.
