CounterMarkets: A Perspective - Put Your Faith Not In Politicians
Most political debates are absolute garbage.
It’s just one demagogue after another spewing empty platitudes and false promises to win the ring of power.
But every once in a while, the truth breaks through and the psychopath behind the mask is revealed.
Tulsi Gabbard ripped off Kamala Harris’s mask in the last Democrat debate, and then proceeded to verbally smash her in front of a thunderously cheering crowd.
Kamala is dead. Her presidential campaign is finished.
And it was glorious to watch.
Tulsi went after Kamala’s drug enforcement record:
"She put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana."
Then Tulsi cited Kamala’s criminal justice record:
“She blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from death row until the courts forced her to do so. She kept people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California.”
And Tulsi deserves high praise for smashing Kamala to a bloody pulp for all of America to see.
But I’m not a fan of Tulsi Gabbard.
Not at all.
Every single one of her domestic policies are batshit insane.
And there’s something she said not too long after roasting Kamala that sums up my thoughts.
In reference to Kamala working as an attorney general and district attorney, Tulsi said:
“When you were in a position to make a difference and an impact in these people’s lives, you did not.”
That’s exactly right.
And you know what…
Tulsi wouldn’t make a difference either.
Because that’s the whole political game.
That’s why it’s rigged.
That’s why we don’t talk about political solutions to any social problems here at Counter Markets.
Even the person with the most amount of (ostensive) power in the land, the president of the United States of America, cannot make a difference.
Bush ran on being anti-war. But he quickly turned pro-war.
Same with Obama.
Well, the CIA, FBI, and NSA concocted a wild conspiracy theory about Russian collusion...
And the 4th branch of the government, the corporate press, sold it to half of America for well over 2 years. All in an attempt to control Trump from meddling with their agenda.
So I’ll give Tulsi kudos for killing Kamala’s hope to be America’s Next Top Emperor.
But you also have to be reminded that there are no winners here as long as we're playing their game.
And the only way to truly “make a difference and an impact” in people’s lives, is by living your principles, living freely, and helping others do the same while working with those also living free.
In other words…
Building a counter-economy outside of the rigged political system.
Here's the way forward:
