What I think of the American Democracy


One of my Facebook friends told me about The Venus Project. I googled and found their website. They had a link to a documentary called: “The Choice is Ours”.

I love the example at 30:55 of comparing our democracy to the democracy of cheeseburgers and fried chicken. It accurately represents how stupid that system is. Additionally, a vegetarian or vegan will get the point even better because they don’t want either.

The point is that yes, under a democratic system, you get the “choice” over who you vote for, but you will never really get what you want. Aside from the whole fact that the idea of a free choice is an illusion, the choices we are offered are none of the ones we want.

I like food comparisons. A vegan like me wants bananas, apples, oranges, watermelon, kale, broccoli, or any other plant food. Instead, if offered only a choice between a cheeseburger and fried chicken, it’s a completely worthless choice.

It’s the equivalent of being asked if you would rather be burnt or frozen to death. Naturally, you don’t want to die in the first place, but at least you were given a “choice” in which way you are to be killed.

I have unusual thoughts on almost every subject. I am as Pro-Life as I can possibly be. I am strongly opposed to violence of any type. That includes rape, war, and (obviously) abortion. Everything I think, speak, and write must be filtered by the effect it could have on the lives of others. If I am in any way promoting violence accidentally, please let me know.
