Hacked Democracy? Algor is a Rich Idiot

leave a comment »


The Fat Green One continues to rattle his gums, talking about how our Democracy has been hacked, and because of big money corporations, etc etc.  This has been the lament of the socialist left for years now – annoying things like individual liberty coupled with responsibility, the Constitution, pure freedom – these are things that the left really abhors.  

Actually, their lament is, “America is screwed up because we can’t get our way – and it’s Wall Street’s fault”.

Algor seems to forget that the US is not a democracy, it’s a republic.  We as citizens seem to forget this – even when the name of our country is the United STATES.  We are a union, not of people, but of states.  Unfortunately, we have eroded the context of states so much that now, we have the people electing senators, rather than those senators being elected by their General Assemblies and statehouses. In short, we forget that point all too easily.

Since Algor wants to talk about how big money has hijacked our country, perhaps he would be so good as to talk about how the labor unions are just as much part of the blame.  But since the Teamsters, AFL-CIO, SEIU, UAW, etc etc use their clout to impose their will (anyone know how much control the unions have on states like Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Ohio, and the like?)  With the unions using nice terms like “collective bargaining rights” and “card check” to sequester dues from people in order to promote their liberal causes, it’s really amazing how the left ignores them.

Algor’s point here is to talk about how big money’s influence is wrong yet he’s damaged good now – given his recent sellout of Current TV to Al Jazeera.  That fat clod is laughing all the way to the bank – a bank pumped with oil money.  Why do we listen to this guy when he is very much, himself, a big fat green part of the problem.

For the left, if things don’t go the way they plan, they get gripey about how our democracy has been hacked, how we should just give up on the Constitution over issues, or how the right to bear arms is an outdated concept. In other words, rather than codify liberty in law, we elect mob rule. Good thinking there, pinheads. You people have no concept of the Founder’s intent.

I don’t even know why Algor continues to have a platform to speak – the man is a quack and a hack.  He’s totally disingenuous and generally useless, both to the greenie movements as well as…well…to anyone else that has to listen to his tripe.
