The Democrat? The Republican?

I can always be a distraction. So, where’s the changeover then? How has time become our last resort? I’m idling here, I know….

I buy my jeans from a thrift store for reassurance. I am a rebel. I am a social drinker. There’s nothing wrong with that. I don’t want to be like my parents either, but heroes are a waste of time. And religion? Ha. I scoff at anything organized. No one’s going to hell because it doesn’t exist. And what is morality anyway? Such hypocrites. The artists on my iPod no one is allowed to recognize, because pop music and money is for the sellouts. I don’t feel sorry for myself, in case you’re wondering. I just don’t want to be stuck here in this little state. Everyone here is so closed-minded. Maybe if they would get off their asses. And this. And that. And the rest…

We’re tired of the same old sad story. Everyone and all their pity.

What are you doing?

What am I doing?

Yeah, you—the kid with all the potential in the world—what are you doing?

I’m working, smoking, fucking, breathing.

Taking up space. Coveting. Consuming. And now they tell you to make a difference. They say, “You invoke change! Come out and vote!” Vote for whom? Who the fuck does the United States government and all these paid celebrity campaigners want you to vote for?

The Democrat? The Republican?

Fuck. That. These political pundits with all their talk about policy and bills and Operation: Iraqi Freedom. Like this is make or break. Like your vote makes a difference. How about a vote for indifference? Every single one of these proposed candidates represents the same thing: moderation. Fuck Left. Fuck Right. Fuck the Ass and the Elephant. I am not a proponent of extremism in any form, except extremist freedom. Open your eyes America; the war we need to fight is the war within. And I don’t mean inside the borders of our own country; I mean the war we wage every day in our hearts and in our heads. Democracy, Jihad, genocide? How about depression, anxiety, and the search for shreds of remaining truth in hope. How did we get all the way from hunting and gathering, to oppression and tyranny and self-destruction? Tragedy has taken hold, and so we get our name; this is the Age of the Fall, and nothing changes until it…all…crashes…down.

Fighting For You said...

Giving up hope is not the way to go.

You can fight it.

And you can win.

Jesus Or Die said...

The Pharisees and Sadducees represented organized religion at the time of Christ. Jesus constantly confronted them about their false teachings and hypocritical lifestyles. Many of them changed from this organized religion – Paul is one example. Jesus Himself indicates that the punishment in hell itself is everlasting - not merely the smoke and flames we may see or hear about.

telling people to give up, telling people not to pay attention to the world but to start a revolution instead is ridiculously near sighted. We can't start a revolution, we can't fight the powers that be until the world has some kind of balanace. Educate yourselves AOTF...there are people out there, like myself that want things to change...but today is not the day for people like me to drink your kool aid.

Hi,

I want to e-mail Tyler Black so I can arrange for Eric to pick out 4 DVDs for me to buy him. I don't know how to find the e-mail address on this site. Please e-mail me! Thank you.

I find it funny that the only way to "win" is for everyone to "loose". I agree. Just the irony of the situation doesn't exactly make me comfortable. Then again, this was never about being comfortable.

Hypocrites, ehh? Hmm, that's a moral judgment...
