Why Support an Establishment That Believes You Don't Matter?

When white people (I am white) tell me how there is little to no racism anymore, I remind them that in my lifetime blacks had a very hard time voting in America. Kids, I remember the 1960s. I remember John Kennedy being president and Martin Luther King while they were alive. I remember when you had deeds that prohibited you from selling your house to blacks or Asians in the nicer areas. I also witnessed the changes as homosexuality and interracial marriage stopped being crimes. In many states it was even illegal to engage in oral sex with your wife.

This post is not about gays or blacks, it is about democracy and voting being representative. Remember what the founding fathers did say, "Taxation without representation is tyranny". Yet, when they said that women could not vote and blacks could not vote, nor Indians. The people in charge always want to limit voting and democracy to their group.

Well, I have some articles for you so that you can understand this issue better. Lets start with this.

The establishment is scared and the vote bye the UK to leave the European Union has terrified them because it means others might choose self determination and ignore them Now England left the European Union because they lost the ability to write and legislate their own laws, the European Union's response was to immediately call for less democracy and less control over the internal laws by EU nations.

The Express - European SUPERSTATE to be unveiled: EU nations 'to be morphed into one' post-Brexit.  The intent is simple, change the rules of the game before more people vote themselves out of the EU. They do not want you to believe that your vote should matter.

Breitbart - Media Pushes ‘Ban’ On Old People Voting After Brexit.  Yes, both American and British media are saying that baby boomers (older people) should not be allowed to vote, what a shock. Read the links that were provided by Breitbart.

Foreign Policy - It's Time for the Elites to Rise Up Against the Ignorant Masses. You have to searth the phrase and you only get to read the article once before the site locks you out. Didn't know that when I read it.

Yahoo - American politics has been ‘reformed to death’.  The article's basic proposition is that we have enough democracy and that the primaries allow too much of the average American having a say in the government. This is a really important article that once again explains the establishments contempt for the average person having a say in their own life.

Forbes - Of Course U.S. Inequality Is Rising, It Was Meant To.  How nice of Forbes to point out why the middle class should die off and become poorer.
