As usual the Social democrat leader, Mona Sahlin, a ‘female’ (sort of) argued that the “right”-government and her opponent, Prime Mentalist Fredrik Reinfeldt, are cutting taxes for the wealthy and its sooo horrible for everyone else. You know, starving people everywhere, babies getting eaten by rich guys in black hats, and the sky is falling - that sort of thing.
The Prime Mentalist on the other hand said that the social democrats want to tax everything and everybody, and that they will plunge Sweden into darkness. And since the social democrats are relying on communists and tree-huggers to gain power, a glowing fierily hell will be created and destroy the beautiful Sweden the Prime Mentalist and his cronies have created during the latest 3000… oh sorry, 3 years.
The political storyline between these two imaginary enemies is always the same. As a former active politician I can recite most in my sleep without watching any theatrical display.
The “right” claim to have cut taxes, maybe they have, but have any of you out there noticed it? I mean since they’ve increased taxation on fuel, tobacco, and alcohol at the same time as inflation rages on? I know my parents haven’t noticed any difference. I certainly haven’t.
And for the first time the leftie argument of "the right" destroying the economy actually holds. They always say that, normally it isn’t really true, but now with the fictively low interest rates, hundreds of billions given to the banking cartels that all should be bankrupt, the housing bubble growing and a rising deficit they do have a point.
Maybe that’s the idea? Let the lefties take over an economy in free-fall? Fuck the country, let’s show people how much the left can destroy Sweden if given a chance to rule in a communist-tree hugging-socialist way.
But worst of all; the current administration has imposed a truly fascist control-grid, they have a Justice Minister that thinks that the innocent should be punished and that very young kids can be tortured. Not that the lefties are complaining - now they only need to take over, not create such totalitarianism themselves.
And the “left” are even more useless. The "woman" and her henchmen seemingly think that jobs will be created if they increase taxes with a percentage or two at the same time as they conjure up more government departments. That’s so old and incredibly stupid. The social democrats have totally died idea wise and when it’s being argued by this woman that even many of their core-voters detest it falls flatter than usual. And have you seen this… ‘woman…?
And the thought of having true believing communists in the Swedish government make the skin crawl and you really start to look at charts to see where they would want to build their equivalent of Gulag camps.
So what do THEY really want then?
Well they both want you to vote, they want you to pay your taxes (plus minus one or two HUGE percent), they both want you to be a good little citizen running around in the wheel, they both want you to follow the law, they both want you to be silent and take it, and they both want to save the old, young, poor, unemployed and sick.
Will any of these to ‘alternatives’ change anything?
Oh no, no, no, only adjust, fickle a bit, cut a corner there, build something there. Both want to keep the same system, both want to have the same structure in place. When it comes down to it, the only real change in-between is who will be prime mentalist. I do hope it will be the current one in that case, his version of the stink-hole is slightly less smelly and at least he doesn’t make you regurgitate when you see him.
How much did they talk about the impending financial depression, the slaughter of Muslims in foreign countries, the fascist internet surveillance, and ideology? Very little. They did bring up the Justice Minister and her wacky totalitarian ideas, but otherwise not much of the fun stuff.
If you want to voice your opinion you should look for the alternatives that really will rock the elitist’s world. You see nothing frightens those in power more than to lose their place at parliament or have some pesky newcomer take their seat at any of their countless departments. Sure they will still get some complementary high position within the elitist agenda, but it is not really the same thing.
Vote for the ‘racists’? Sure, I hate those morons, but so do the politically correct and the elitists, so why not? They are evil you know, racist too, they are really “right”-wing, and racist. They are basically exactly the same as the rest, social democrats really, but racist. Oh and did I mention they were racists?
Maybe a vote on the Pirate Party? I don’t really like them either, and it seems like they could use new management, but they at least fight for something that none of the rest do -the right to privacy and individual freedom comes to new technology. They are also cool - ‘pirates’ - I mean come on, you don’t need to love Johnny Depp or watch a lot of porn to like that one.
We also do have a libertarian party. I think they got 400 votes, in total, during the last general election but hey, at least they know what’s what and are a real alternative. I will probably go and vote for them, if I get the time to drag myself from more important things then voting, you know like clipping my toe nails, watching paint dry, popping popcorn…
