Not To Do on Selection Day
way to shatter the illusion of consent the keystone of majority-rule
democratic tyranny is by making it obvious to
nearly everyone that the Fuhrer (oops, president) has
been selected by, at most, a minority of the voting population.
That in addition to being a cretinous philosophy as such (i.e.,
mob rule) democracy is also a lie at its most
majority doesnt rule.
a modern presidential selection, only about 50-something percent
of the people eligible to vote actually do vote thus, the
winner is the one who gets appx. 26 percent or so of
the 50 percent. In other words, a quarter of the voters determine
who is selected Duce (excuse me, president).
in the 2000 presidential selection, The Chimp received 50,456,002
votes. His WWF-style opponent, Captain Planet, received 50,999,897
(see here for more). Even though Captain Planet received 48.4 percent
of the so-called popular vote, he lost the selection
to The Chimp who received 47.9 percent. But the key thing
is that neither won anything close to a majority of
the votes of the eligible voters.
the 2000 race, the voting age population was 205,815,000. Go back
a sentence or two and re-read the actual turnout numbers. Combine
The Chimp and Captain Planets tallies. You get 101,455,899
. There is some dispute about the fine print
for example, The American Presidency Project claims 105,586,274
cast ballots in the 2000 presidential selection (see here).
But the essential point remains: The American Caudillo (oh, yes,
the president) was selected by about
50 million Americans about a quarter of the eligible pool
So much for
We in fact
have minority rule in this democracy. Have had
it, for decades.
are unaware of this fact which is carefully camouflaged by
the MSM. Because the MSM and the PTB behind the MSM
know very well that their gooses will be thoroughly cooked if the
scam ever becomes common knowledge. Even the dullest of Clovers
still buys into the majority rule essence of democracy.
He feels he is represented and that the government
operates with the consent of the governed. This confers
legitimacy on the government in the Clover mind.
Once you peel
away the curtain of consent, its over.
But it wont
be over so long as enough people continue to play along.
enough people did not play along.
If enough people
simply stopped being useful idiots. If the number of people voting
dropped below 40 percent or even less. The winner
thus selected by 15-20 percent of the country would be as obviously
illegitimate as the winner of a selection in Uganda.
It would be damn hard to maintain the illusion of consent
of the governed the shaky foundation upon which rests
the entire rickety, corrupt and despicable edifice democracy.
