Every four years the public gets all riled up over the outcome of the presidential election, projecting all their expectations and visions for a better tomorrow on to a candidate in the hopes that they will swoop in and save the day. However, the reality is that the outcome of the presidential election has little to no effect on the direction of the country anymore. That’s not to say that minor cards don’t get shuffled around the deck, but the overall structure of the system stays intact and the train keeps on chugging.
Herein lies the problem: the game being played is rigged, and has developed steadily over time, yet people are still waiting for a single candidate or administration from within that flawed design to come in and clean it all up. This is a paradigm that many just refuse to break away from, despite it being obvious and not plausible whatsoever. People simply do not understand that the problem is the system; so continuing to think change is going to come from some savior within the system is naïve at best.
The system doesn’t want to produce change; it only looks to preserve itself to the benefit of those that control it. While voting might have some merit in certain instances, the hard truth is that voting is not what is going to solve our current problem, especially at the federal level, where it is run amok with infiltration and corruption. The only thing that is going to actually save the people at this point are the people.
