That is one thing you might've noticed I

daosorios 00:03
00:06

don't complain about: Politicians.

daosorios 00:06
00:09

Everybody complains about politicians.

uea978 00:09
00:11

Everybody says they suck. But where do

daosorios 00:11
00:13

the people think these politicians come from?

daosorios 00:13
00:15

They don't fall out of the sky.

daosorios 00:15
00:18

They don't pass through a membrane from another reality.

daosorios 00:19
00:22

They come from american parents and american families, american homes,

daosorios 00:22
00:25

american schools, american churches, american businesses and american universities.

daosorios 00:25
00:28

and they're elected by american citizens.

daosorios 00:28
00:31

This is the best we can do, folks.

daosorios 00:31
00:33

This is what we have to offer.

daosorios 00:33
00:35

It's what our system produces:

uea978 00:35
00:38

Garbage in, garbage out!

daosorios 00:39
00:41

If you have selfish, ignorant citizens,

daosorios 00:41
00:43

if you have selfish, ignorant citizens,

daosorios 00:43
00:45

you are gonna get selfish, ignorant leaders.

daosorios 00:45
00:48

The term limits ain't goinna do any good;

daosorios 00:48
00:51

you're just going to end up with a brand new bunch of selfish, ignorant Americans.

daosorios 00:51
00:55

So maybe, maybe, maybe it's not the politicians who suck.

daosorios 00:55
00:58

Maybe something else sucks around here.

daosorios 00:58
01:00

Like... the public.

uea978 01:00
01:02

Yeah. The public sucks!

daosorios 01:02
01:06

There's a nice campaign slogan for somebody.

uea978 01:06
01:08

"The public sucks, fuck hope!".

daosorios 01:08
01:10

Fuck hope.

daosorios 01:11
01:13

Because if it's really just the fault of these politicians

uea978 01:13
01:17

then where are all the other bright people of conscience?

daosorios 01:17
01:20

Where are all the bright, honest, inteligent americans ready to

daosorios 01:20
01:23

step in and save the Nation and lead the way?

uea978 01:23
01:25

We don't have people like that in this country;

uea978 01:26
01:29

everybody's at the mall, scratching his ass, picking his nose,

daosorios 01:29
01:34

taking his credit card out of his fanny pack and buying a pair of sneakers with lights in them!

daosorios 01:36
01:40

So I have solved this little political dilemma for myself in a very simple way:

daosorios 01:40
01:43

On election day... I stay home.

uea978 01:43
01:47

I don't vote. Fuck'em, fuck'em! I don't vote.

daosorios 01:47
01:50

Two reasons, two reasons I don't vote:

daosorios 01:50
01:52

First of all, is meaningless.

daosorios 01:52
01:56

This country was bought and sold and paid for a long time ago.

uea978 01:56
01:59

The shit they shuffle around every 4 years, *pfff*

daosorios 01:59
02:02

doesn't mean a fucking thing.

uea978 02:03
02:08

And secondly I don't vote because I believe if you vote, you have no right to complain.

daosorios 02:09
02:11

People like to twist that around, I know.

uea978 02:11
02:16

They say: "Well, if you don't vote, you have no right to complain"; but where's the logic in that?

daosorios 02:16
02:21

If you vote and you elect dishonest, incompetent people and they get into office

daosorios 02:21
02:24

and screw everything up... well, you are responsible for what they have done.

daosorios 02:24
02:27

You caused the problem; you voted them in; you have no right to complain.

daosorios 02:28
02:34

I, on the other hand, who did not vote, who did not vote,

daosorios 02:34
02:40

who in fact did not even leave the house on election day,

daosorios 02:40
02:45

am in no way responsible for what these people have done and have every right to complain

daosorios 02:45
02:49

as long as I want about the mess you created that I had nothing to do with.

daosorios 02:49
02:51

So I know that a little later on this year

daosorios 02:51
02:55

you're going to have another of those really swell presidential elections that you like so much,

daosorios 02:55
02:58

you enjoy yourselves it'll be alot of fun.

uea978 02:58
03:01

I'm sure that as soon as the election is over your country will improve immediately.

uea978 03:01
03:05

As for me, I'll be home that day doing essentially the same thing as you.

uea978 03:05
03:07

The only difference is, when I get finished masturbating

daosorios 03:07
03:11

I'm gonna have a little something to show for it folks.

daosorios 03:11
03:14

Thank you very much.
