Thoughts on "Weaponizing the Vote"

We got to thinking a bit this morning after a discussion with some like minded chaps - and some further reflections on David Warren's Piece from yesterday.

Something we should consider is deliberately weaponizing the vote. Use it as a tool to incite chaos. Elect the stupid to weaken the enemy in advance of badness.

Now, we don't mean "get out and campaign for some fops" - they have their legions of cheer-leaders for that. We mean, "spend thirty minutes in the booth marking the ballot for the worst possible human trash for the job."

Remember: Highly stupid pols lacking restraint and nuance will escalate things from a slow burn into an outright conflagration with a combination of maleficence and startling idiocy. Consider it a user-controlled application of reverse natural selection.

Some will present the case that the system needs to be de-legitimized by non-participation. This is a fine notion - and a worthy debate point. That entertained, we'd argue those who "need this sort of demonstration" already understand the vote is completely illegitimate. It's speaking to the converted. The politicians by default know the system is fraudulent. Those still lacking a clue, in our opinion, won't be convinced of the reality until the cattle cars are half way to the fusion center. While RIDING them.

- Bad is the mush-wing Republicans. They will cool the fires and calm a portion of the serfs - who get to wave their cute little banners and pretend everything is magically better. These "good little statist caretakers" will then clean up some of the more outrageous abuses, while leaving the majority of Behemoth intact. That's terrible for the liberty movement, (in our opinion). Such ice-blooded hucksters give a veneer of legitimacy while role-playing "reasonable authority figures" - which will in turn be used to justify plenty of inaction.

- Good is unrestrained full-on radical marxists, fools, moral-crusaders, illiterates and drug addled morons running roughshod over everything. They cause immense harm to Leviathan as they dance about spouting inflammatory rhetoric while wielding the steel arm of the regulatory state as a bludgeon - against anything their sensibilities, (or lack-there-of), find disagreeable. Harry Reid is a gift from God. Chuck Schumer? Who could ask for a better bogey-man? These abusive cave trolls flexing their muscle are exactly the wrong sorts at the worst possible time.

To which we say... more. They don't know how to moderate, their righteous indignation won't allow it. Encourage the behavior, give them the lit sparkler - and they'll gleefully prance into the powder magazine with absolutely zero encouragement.

Just some thoughts and ruminations.
