OK, I don’t know about you, but I’m getting so tired of seeing our Elected Government Officials basically stealing my money and then using it to pay for excessively extravagant and opulent buildings and work places. With the exception of the White House, the Capitol Building, The National Mall, and the Pentagon, the only environment our government officials should be allowed to work in are the most austere and inexpensive that can be found anywhere: FEMA trailers.

I mean, seriously. Why not FEMA trailers?

Does the HUD building really need to be this?

and this?

Does the IRS really need to have this building to do it’s job?

Seriously, this building must have cost MILLIONS of OUR MONEY to build.

And what about the Food And Drug Administration?

And look at this Department of Homeland Security complex:

Seriously, folks – WTF is going on around here??????????? Our government is so out of control it is just plain disgusting. Spending by our government on projects like this is the equivalent of robbing the poor to feed the rich. The firms that get the contracts to build these projects are pocketing millions upon millions of taxpayer dollars.

In fact, one could argue, just given the simple evidence of the few buildings shown above and the following list of US Government Agencies, it would seem pretty self evident that our Government only exists to steal your money and give it to their rich friends in the private sector in the form of government contracts and all of the truly unimaginable-in-size-and-scope financial eco-system that must go along with projects like these.

We are chasing the wrong demons. War isn’t the problem. Giving money to other countries isn’t the problem. It’s the Federal Government, State Governments, and Local Governments and their unearned and undeserved pretentious insistence that somehow they are ENTITLED to your money so they can engage themselves in the busy-work of spending it and helping themselves get very, very rich. You don’t think the people in government who hold the purse strings on these disgustingly immense projects are invested through nearly incomprehensible complex financial schemes so that they profit themselves, personally, from the granting of these multi-million and multi-billion dollar projects?

It’s all hiding in plain sight, masquerading as “Manifest Destiny” and “Progress” and “Capitalism” – but make no mistake: it’s all a great big lie, a twisted, pretzel logic ponzi scheme of black hearted, greedy deception and runaway theft. Call it Grand Theft Autopilot.

Imagine if I took up arms and stole money from my neighbors pocket, created a law that made it OK, created a security force (police) to prevent him from mounting any objections, enabled those police to imprison him if he refused to pay, used his own money to pay them, created a court system that upheld my right to steal his money, used the money that I stole from him to pay the officers of that court, and then built the prison that I put him in should he not hold up his hands in utter and complete surrender and allow me to continuously and perpetually keep taking money out of his pocket, and pay for that prison and the guards that keep him under lock and key with the money I stole from him. If I pocketed the rest of the money and gave him back a quarter or two, and invented reasons and need to keep the rest – projects and agencies and buildings and employees. What would that make me? A thief? A dictator? The Mafia?

Well, that’s exactly what the government does. All governments. All hold their power at the point of a gun upon the people they should be protecting. The people whose very lives depend on their honesty and benevolence, who hold their hands up willingly, in supplication, to allow their pockets to be picked, their pride to be vanquished, and their freedom – granted by the creator of all things – whittled away chip by chip and shred by shred to nothing.

They steal your money, create the laws that make it OK for them to steal your money, use your money to create a police force to prevent you from objecting, create the laws that allow that police force to rob you of your freedom if you do object, use your money to create and pay for the court system and it’s employees and officers that enforce the laws that allow them to steal your money, user your money to build prisons to hold you and use your money to pay those who hold you, and perpetually steal from you a cut of every single dollar you earn from the sweat of your brow.

This government of ours is not a government at all, nor are any of the governments anywhere in the world. It is a den of thieves sitting atop a mountain of wealth taken by force. Common thieves. Criminals. They make the rules that make themselves and their friends richer, and richer, and richer, day by day by day.

And before you’re “in denial” brain or your “guilty and must defend myself” brain goes into any kind of attempt to tell me I’m wrong about this, let me tell you why I am 100% correct and why you need to either get smart or go away with your tail between your legs: If the governments of the world truly acted as the important stewards of your happiness, prosperity, health and safety that they pretend to be, then there would be no war. Everyone would have jobs, in fact there would be more available jobs than there are people worldwide. Everyone would make enough money to afford anything and everything they could ever desire. No one person would be allowed to abscond with all of the wealth while people freeze to death in the gutter. There would be millions of dollars spent to build housing for the unfortunate and disenfranchised, those who for whatever reason cannot fend for themselves. There would be no laws that prohibit any kind of personal freedom and nobody would ever be forced to spend years in prison over victimless crimes like recreational drug use. The prisons would be there to imprison those who endeavored to connive, deceive, and trick you out of your money, your security, and your prosperity. The food industry would be prohibited from creating products that kill you. The healthcare industry would be prohibited from being a profit-motive industry and no public stocks could be bought or sold and no profiting whatsoever would be tolerated at the expense of the health of even one human being. Health insurance companies would not exist at all, and even if they did they could not be run by publicly traded companies whose motivation is to deliver profits and dividends to shareholders at the expense of the health and quality of life of the people who they are supposed to be there to help. Vices would be considered lifestyle choices not crimes. You wouldn’t need the battalions of Lawyers and the uncountable courthouses and the immense legal system, because there would be no laws whatsoever that made common men criminals because of their pursuit of happiness. Don’t like pot? Don’t smoke it. Think sex is dirty? Don’t fuck. Don’t like booze? Don’t drink. If people drink and drive and get in an accident where nobody is hurt, let’s make sure they’re OK and get them help. If someone gets hurt, then and only then should it be considered a crime. If the governments of the world truly cared about you, there would be no war, no poverty, no hunger… none of it.

So let me close by saying that you don’t have to have a Harvard degree in Social Science or Political Science to see what is going on here. In fact, I think an education might be a hindrance to seeing what is going on here. A simple, marginally educated high school drop out can see what is going on. All you have to do is open your eyes and choose to see. We are victims. We’ve all been played by a system that fixes the game in their favor.

It’s very sad.

This is the list of US Federal Government Agencies, copied right from the USA.gov web site, that were created with your money and must be fed with more of your money:

Did you count? I counted once and I got 519. That’s five hundred nineteen!!!! 519 Government agencies that are funded by the theft of your money by a system that is self justifying. Some of these in the list above are totally necessary, and some are, well, just a way to spend your money and live in the lap of luxury and appoint friends, family, and business associates into positions with high pay and high titles. All funded by – you guessed it – the theft of the money you earned and should be able to keep for yourselves.

I have no issues with any one or more items on the above list. My issue is with the shear size of the list and it should be your issue too.

The solution? NEVER vote for an incumbent. Give each politician a single term to make a difference then send them back to their lives, don’t allow the theft of your money to BE their lives. Give a clear mandate to the elected officials to stop fucking around with your money. Take what is needed, do the right thing, take care of the most vulnerable among us, and stop creating enemies by playing with firepower and power in general.

Keep voting out the incumbents and I guarantee things will change. Fast.

Love and Prosperity to you ALL! Have an AWESOME Day!
