Fall of the Republic by Fall of the republic

I'm getting old. I've seen this crap played out every four years of my life. The election"what can I say?  If I say I'm pleased as punch that Obama beat Romney, I would be lying. If Romney beat Obama, I would be just as sad. In fact, I wished that no one would have won this election. I wished everyone would have stayed home. The fact is, many more people opted out of voting this election.

According to The Associated Press , around 117 million are estimated to have turned out to vote for president this year. In 2008, a record-breaking 131 million voters showed up for the historic election. If these early numbers are to be believed, then voter turnout was down roughly 11 percent.

That is astounding. When you figure in population growth, the numbers should have been much higher. Still, I don't want to bullshit anyone. People like me stayed home because this election was a farce. Nobody said anything.

We have real issues in this country and electing Mr. Drone attack Kill master is not going to solve any of them. In reality, he is the cause of many of our problems, problems that did not come up in any of the three debates. Let's discuss some of these problems without any of the tacky bullshit the Democrats and Republicans came out with.

1.       Loss of American civil rights. We have lost more of our civil rights under this African-American President than we did with our former Neo-Con President. I'll gladly list some of them, although I'm sure that there are more we don't know about.

Bush-Cheney to Obama

 Of course the initial 2000 seizure of the Presidency by stopping the vote count in Florida was a kind of "coup," but following 9/ll the Bush administration defined its reign when it rolled out its anti-terrorism plan:

" The doctrine of global supremacy and the advocacy of preemptive war, outlawed by the United Nations charter.

" Refusal to recognize international law or the applicability of the Geneva Accords.

" Roundup of immigrants after 9/ll, thousands of persons held without charges.

" The Patriot Act, authorizing massive government spying, now renewed by Obama and the Democratic-controlled Congress.

" Domestic deployment of the military as law enforcement in violation of the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878.

" Secret deportation hearings.
