Treason in the New Hampshire Primary

When I see shit-bags like McCain and Romney winning elections, three things come to mind:

  1. American’s have learned to love the, already exposed, traitors who are eating them for lunch.
  2. The vote is rigged.
  3. All of the above.

It really is sad to see it all happening again. It is as if we just don’t care about the fact that we are being used and made to go in circles wasting our limited time on this planet. Laugh at it all you want, ridicule it, but the plain and simple fact remains.

If we don’t do something meaningful, not just a symbolic gesture, we are going to lose all that our fore bearers have fought for. Isn’t that worth something to you?

The R3volution is Dead – Long Live the Revolution!!!

“This thing is bigger than both of us, baby.
We knew it all along.”
— “Bigger Than Both of Us,” Beier and Kane (2000)

My name is Edgar J. Steele. This is a Nickel Rant.

Here – let me be the first to say it: The Ron Paul R3volution is dead.

No, that isn’t the end of it. In fact, it is just the beginning. The real beginning. Let me also be the first to say, “Long Live the Revolution!” I have written before as to why it must be so.

I haven’t given up on Ron Paul, but I admit to having been convinced by him that he cannot become America’s President. It took a long time. I don’t know how often I’ve heard him tell reporters or interviewers that his followers “have cured (his) skepticism.” I wince each time, because I know he doesn’t mean it. Too bad.

Yesterday, Dr. Paul issued a statement that he would not challenge the obvious (my word, not his) vote fraud that took place in New Hampshire (and Iowa, for that matter). “I am convinced that vote fraud played no role in this result,” said Dr. Paul. I’d like to think that simply was his diplomacy talking. Problem is, this is no time for diplomacy.

A manipulation of 2 or 3 percentage points, which is all that statistical analysis shows is likely to have occurred, would make little difference to the outcome, putting Dr. Paul ahead of the execrable Rudy Giuliani but still trailing Huckabee, Romney and McCain (there is one web site with analysis suggesting Dr. Paul would finish third). However, demanding that the record be set right would have made all the difference in the world to those of us who knew it was coming. Knew it because we’ve seen it happen before – in Ohio last time, in Florida the time before that and in too many places to be counted, all places where the Diebold electronic voting machines hold sway.

The Making of a Completely Self-Sustained Home

Dennis Weaver, the US retired actor, builds himself a mansion made almost entirely from recycled tires and dirt. This is eco-modernization, proving once and for all that eco-friendly design and construction/building does not have to smell or look funny.

In fact, it is cheaper, quicker, easier and safer to construct such an ‘earthship’ than any conventional construction technique! This is eco-rationality in action. Prepare to be amazed.

Things Change, But Nothing Changes

To all of my long-time readers, I would like to apologize for my recent extended absence from the blog-o-sphere. I know there are a few of you out there, who enjoy reading my regular commentaries. I want you to know that I will continue to post my thoughts, regardless of what direction my life takes. This is far from the end of my blogging days; on the contrary, it is the beginning of a new period of my life, where I hope to raise the bar for my level of creativity and originality.

Sometimes I just need some time away from all of this to attend to the things that are happening in my life. I have many things that I would like to attend to, in order feel the proper balance and to take my creativity into areas which it has yet to delve. I also have some new forces in my life that are helping a great deal to realize these creative aspirations; I think it is of the utmost importance that I give everything its due and allow things to unfold without being too insistent.

Intuition tells me that things are changing rapidly and drastically; despite all of this, however, the underlying thrust, to liberate all forms of creativity and express my genuine self-hood, is likely never to change. I know this because, throughout my life, despite all of the forces trying to make me like everyone else, this is the one aspect of me that has not waned. In fact, the more I am compelled to conform, the stronger the desire becomes to be unique.
