US Political Parties

US Political Parties
US Political Parties & Their Mascots

Yep! Just as the Democrats have their jackass and the Republicans have their elephant, the “third parties” should have mascot too… the unicorn. It’d be perfectly in keeping with the nature of such things.

Face it, nothing is more appropriate as a mascot for any of the fringe parties, i.e., anything except the Democrats and Republicans, in America than that most fantastic of the fantasy creature, the unicorn since they’ve as much chance of making a measurable difference in American politics as Kim Kardashian does of catching a unicorn.

NOTE: The above is in the context of national politics. Members of any of the various “other” parties in America can and do get elected at municipal and even occasionally state levels.

In my opinion this is fundamentally because there’s no real difference except by degrees of intensity between the parties. Libertarians are essentially just more extreme and less practical versions of Republicans and Socialists and Greens are just more extreme and less practical versions of Democrats. None of them have specific, different agendas and platforms than the “real” US political parties.

Truly! How can they be different from the “Big Two?” Every candidate at the higher levels of politics is expected to have a position and preferably policy on every issue. This means that, unlike Britain and other more parliamentary governments single issue parties can’t exist and all the parties end up coming down on one or the other sides of the fence. This makes any parties other than the Democrats and Republicans extraneous at best, and makes their success a fantasy.

Let’s Take A Break

Reality is more than little rough right now and looking like it’s going to get rougher before it gets better, if it even will get better. Sounds like a good time to take a short, restorative break from it.

VTOL Jet Turbine Snail!

There we all go. Nothing’s a better break from reality than a transforming VTOL snail with jet turbines. Enjoy! 😆

Muslim Coexistence

Many members of Mankind, especially the sheltered individuals in the Civilized World cling to the fantasy of coexistence and mutual respect for- and tolerance of other faiths and ideologies.

How Muslims coexists with others
The Muslim Version Of Coexisting

Of course this fantasy is dashed to pieces upon the jagged rocks of reality wherever and whenever Muslims are encountered because, to a Muslim, coexistence is a most grievous sin. Islam requires that Muslims coexist with others only for so long as it takes them to either convert them, subjugate them, or eradicate them.

Many Have Asked

What is the nature of reality? It’s a question that many have asked and that many, many more have thought to answer.

If Obama gave a speech in a forest and there was no-one to hear him would he still lie
Would He Still Lie?

The Bishop of Cloyne, George Berkeley asked this, as did William Fossett. So too did Albert Einstein, Charles Riborg Mann, and George Ransom Twiss. Indeed, throughout the modern age the question has been posed in publications as diverse as The Chautauquan and Scientific American.

The Coexistence Fantasy

There is, and has been, this ongoing fantasy about the various and disparate religions and ideologies coexisting in peace and, presumably, mutual respect.

Can't We Just Coexist in Peace?
Can’t We Just Coexist in Peace?

Unfortunately, like all fantasies, at some point – for those, at least, who aren’t utterly insane and lost in delusion – the waking world and reality intrudes upon the fantasy.

Coexist? - Run Away
Infidels! I Will Kill You!

That’s the problem. Islam, the religion of war, terrorism, and sundry abuses of the soul doesn’t want to coexist. It wants to conquer and supplant all other religions, philosophies, ideologies, and political system. It’s cultists do not, and cannot while still being Muslims, work or play well with others.
