. . . First, too many ellipsis marks.
Second, you would have "us young folk" read party advertisement websites and a forum dedicated to internet pissing matches between Those Who Know and Those Dumb Fucks to "know what is in store for us?" Interesting.
The America we knew, we grew up with, that tucked us in at night and made us do naughty things but said not to tell because no-one would believe us, it's under attack. It's being attacked, molested, raped, and bound and gagged in disturbingly arousing ways. And it's NEVER BEEN LIKE THIS EVER. SO BAD, YA'LL.
There is a disturbing trend, which I follow, and which many of my associates follow. We're part of the "in-crowd," you see. What we do, is we study the various politicians whom we can influence with our vote. We study their voting history, campaign promises (there's little digital media not easily found on the internet, so this is easier than it's every been), corporate associates, and the like. We consider this with our current knowledge, consult with others whose knowledge of a specific area is greater than our own, remove emotion totally from our decision making process, and then vote with the intent of electing the person who will do the least harm.
Because we are completely fucked, and we would rather have the guy who's going to at least lie and say there's gonna be lube involved.
[The preceding was a satire illustrating the overtly venomous nature of party-aligned media outlets. To explain: specific, neutral facts (as all facts inherently are) were wrapped in a story which was condescending, vitriolic, and led the intellectually subdued to a specific conclusion. In this instance, the conclusion "it doesn't matter," applied to a very specific circumstance (the election of public officials) which was in itself a satirical statement contradicting the general idea behind slanted media which is "this motherfucker is on acid and eats babies - why your children will get AIDS."
To unwrap the facts from the satire: it is a burgeoning trend for young voters to ignore traditional sources of information, which are in fact primarily entertainment venues, and instead focus on hard data. When the data needs a specific knowledge set to interpret, that knowledge set is accessed via education from those "in the know."]
I'm very sad I had to post the last two paragraphs to explain, but politics = POLITICS = I'M ALREADY ANGRY, DUMBASS," and as such, reason will be turned off in many who read this thread.
And fuck the PWI: there can be no discussion when everyone already knows they're right.
