General Election

Luxor has both Christian and Moslem communities and the politics of the Middle East are equally diverse. Air your views on the situation.

General Election

Post by carrie »

Well not long to go till election day, I live in Luxor and am sick to the back teeth of hearing about it on the news etc, I am sure that most people make up their mind pretty quickly who they are going to vote for, is there any need for such a prolonged period of electioneering? Must be even worse in the USA.

Why bring it up here? I came out to LLuxor to avoid it as much as possible, but will vote on Thursday/

Carrie, which election are you referring to?

The Chinese have more elections than the British, or so I'm lead to believe. :lol:

I would have thought that if its the British Election, people would have made their minds up by now, either an English Party running the country or an English/Scottish Party running the Country. Either way if any of them are telling the truth I foresee another election this year.

Elections . . . have never voted and never will - politicians are a plague on the planet.

Maybe, BM but how do we convince our public servants of their station in life? :urm:

They will have little choice but to join us. The old ways are failing fast, But most cant see that... Yet..
You really think those buffoons that people get to vote for are really the ones in power... ?
It really is not difficult to work that one out when you think about it carefully, and wonder why you don't get the changes they promise you each time they want your vote...

Proven liars, thieves, cheats and mass murderers, but still the people keep coming back for more every 4 years. Genius. :cool:

I have never voted in any election, even the local ones. If I misbehaved at school, told lies, same at home, I was punished one way or the other. These barstewards start lying from day one, get away with it, are applauded for it, rewarded for it which ends up with the rest of us plebs for it. :x

I was watching Russel Brand on TV last night and as much as I am not keen on the guy, he made a statement. "Its the people that run the Country, if all were in the same mind, there would be not government" is he trying to say "People Power runs everything?" In the great scheme of things he is right but can you imagine the chaos, it would be worse than watching PM's question time....

Exactly the idea is that order comes out of chaos.

Change can only come if the old order is completely destroyed - hence the chaos required so change is inevitable.

Sounds like all my eye and Betty Martin to me. :zz

The illusion is, that we cannot do it on our own, but we can. Governments imposed themselves upon us.
What we have to do, is see past all the separation they have caused.

Their main trick they use, is to cause us to argue with each other, and go running to them for solutions... :br

Money, Religion and Government may seem to be very powerful, but they are all irrelevant ultimately.. :cool:

Maybe so BM but in the real world we have Rule of Law which manages to finance the "merchant bankers" from University straight into parliament without them ever having a proper job.

We break the Rule of Law at our peril.

Hence the expression Sods Law. 8)

There is only 3 laws I am interested in.

you dont hurt anyone
you dont kill anyone
you dont steal an individuals stuff.

What else do we need ?

Corporations need lots of laws, as they have no protection under common law, money is not protected under common law either.

Politics, religion law, and business are all fingers of the same self serving hand... :cg

I will not be voting at the forthcoming UK general election, as none of the parties concerned are prepared to address either population issues or dignified dying for all, and there is scarcely anything on environmental matters. All I hear is the expression 'working families', an epithet I find offensive and disgusting, loaded with natalist venom and socially excluding all else. Throughout my life this sham democracy has failed in so many ways and I spit in the face of the natalist establishment.

“A man cannot live intensely except at the cost of the self. The bourgeois treasures nothing more highly than the self. He prefers comfort to pleasure, convenience to liberty, and a pleasant temperature to that deathly inner consuming fire. He has substituted majority for power, law for force and the polling booth for responsibility.”
Hermann Hesse - Steppenwolf.

For a bit of light relief I found this quite good :mrgreen:
