The serial cynics and naysayers ceaselessly bashing Capitalism and the treasured opportunities of an open society, will certainly continue to echo and blunder the obligatory tiresome talking points in a stirring performance of passive brainwashing in regards to elections. Cue the garbled and screaming angst of discontent….”The system can’t be fixed.” “Corporations are killing democracy.” “We need a three party system.” “My vote doesn’t count.”
No matter what the result or activation of policy change, doom is always at the nearest horizon, and the visceral consumers empirical evidence. While the toxic and mind dulling rhetoric is susceptible to the choice of the individual to tune out and focus on the important things in life, social justice warriors on the left coast have chosen to take the prayer circle flower power public discourse approach to the next level, in a noxious mixture combining ideology and tax dollars resulting with the onset of an unfeasible and irreversible abomination. The tattered remnants of the civic bloodbath make the sculpted dichotomy of Michael Moore statue-worthy.
In the “can’t make this shite up” story of the week, officials in Seattle have unveiled a magic potion hastily duct-taped and solidified with Elmer’s glue which is the perfect compliment for the Democratic majority which rules over the city and the western half of the state with a smarmy social conscious and pretentious style of communal dictatorship. It is like walking past Ron the middle age yoga teacher on the sidewalk, who appears docile and well-adjusted at first glance, only to have the situation deteriorate quickly, as his man-bun is ungraciously revealed in a tedious rendition of a hairstyle shrieking all business up front and free-wheeling hippy activist in the rear. Between car camping, publicly funded heroin dens, unreasonable gun and ammo taxes, $12 million per mile bike lanes, and the homeless industrial complex, the Seattle city council deserves the onslaught of criticism and ridicule.
To appeal to the political imbalance instituted by the motley progressive masses, a tiny percentage of property taxes have been allocated towards a revolutionary and constitutionally awkward campaign finance program, in the form of “Democracy vouchers”. Basically each Seattle voter is allotted a $100 Monopoly-style piece of paper that can be redeemed to help fund the campaign of their preferred candidate or candidates. Supporters of the directive with the catchy name claim that big money donors will be tempered by an all inclusive handout and participation trophy enabling the lower thresholds of the economic hierarchy. And the inevitability of over-educated sweater vests playing leader of the people in forever tarnishing the election process, has reached an unsavory finality.
As the manufactured political posturing of the voucher program is infested with red flags and flaws that makes gerrymandering seem like an innovative lullaby in comparison, the Constitution takes another throat punch from radicals, with further tax money wasted in courtroom battles defending the First Amendment.
Not surprisingly, frustrated residents filed a lawsuit against the city, claiming that the their appropriation of property taxes in funding the campaign finances of political adversaries, violated their free speech. The case was argued in front of the Washington state Supreme Court by the attorneys from the Pacific Legal Foundation. Of course the court, which leans way to the left thanks to three decades plus of appointments by democratic governors, ruled in favor of the Democracy voucher craze. An appeal to the madness and injustice is likely to occur in federal court. Stay tuned to the device of choice.
Last election season, over 1 million dollars of property tax infused democracy money was diverted to candidates, and this year the uniquely shameless method funding campaign finances will certainly surpass the 2018 total as crucial city council seats are on the November ballot. Most notably, openly brazen Socialist and endearingly controversial incumbent, the indelible Kshama Sawant, faces the challenge of maintaining votes in an intrepidly liberal district. Capable of inflicting the horrors of reeducation, while forming an elitist commune celebrating the essence of the SWJ served after each shot of Tequila, the cannibalistic residents of Sawant’s district lust for extremism, as moderates are instantaneously ousted to political obscurity in the aftermath of a soul depleting frenzy of protests and relentless public discourse. Perpetual $100 handshakes generated through the public pool clearly give the advantage to fringe megalomaniacs brandishing the unbearable agenda of destroying the traditional fabric of society and shouting down reason with delusional decrees of seizing Boeing property and transforming the factory into a mass transit manufacturing syndicate.
This is the point where Democracy vouchers collide with the special interest lobby in a formula that equates to a cumbersome flood of irregularities and ambiguities drowning out effective policy. Yes, the current political system caters to the voting majority. However, when the game is specifically rigged and weighted to give concentrations political bedfellows an inherent and insurmountable advantage through tax-payer money, the issue must be argued and debated within the confines of the legal system.
