We have all heard of the battered woman syndrome or the battered child syndrome. It is also called *Domestic Abuse* or *Domestic Violence*. This is not limited to just females, males are subjected to domestic violence also but they are either silent about it or just leave at some point.
The same psychological patterns that take place in Domestic violence are present in the elections that take place in America. The first steps to ending the abuse or violence is to first ACKNOWLEDGE it is happening. “Denial” of the ABUSE is what keeps it happening.
Read the following taken from a Domestic Violence web page and notice how it applies in the case of Government (the abuser) to the American voter (the victim):
“Domestic violence and abuse are used for one purpose and one purpose only: to gain and maintain total control over you. An abuser doesnt play fair. Abusers use fear, guilt, shame, and intimidation to wear you down and keep you under their thumb. Your abuser may also threaten you, hurt you, or hurt those around you.“
Think of the scare tactics in use daily - If you don’t give up this Freedom or Liberty you will allow TERRORISTS to do harm. The only real TERRORISTS in America sit in this White House and Congress. They have, for decades, eliminated under the false threats of danger, all of those FREEDOMS reiterated in the Bill of Rights. They have passed every law – covertly – they can which has eliminated all our Freedoms and the People have accepted it with little more than a whimper. They allow the OCCUPATION FORCES to force them into obtaining PERMISSION for everything including death. There isn’t ONE thing that an American can do without obtaining some kind of permit, license, or permission from some government agent. That is ABUSE!!
We have heard many times how an abusive mate will beat the victim to near death, then tell the victim it is the victims FAULT that the beating took place. The Abuser tells the Victim that he/she really loves the victim and won’t do it again. Victim takes Abuser back, thinking that maybe it is her/his fault that the beating took place.
It is that old *co-dependent* – *enabler* relationship. It plays out between two people and between politicians and voters.
We have a whole bunch of ABUSERS (Politicians) who promise they love us and won’t do anything to harm us if we will just take them back and let them rule over us. We have a bunch of VICTIMS (Voters) who once again fall for the lie and they dutifully cast their vote for the Abuser – AGAIN AND AGAIN. This, in spite of the long list if ABUSES that are not secret abuses but well known abuses. The *bruises* are plain for all to see yet the VICTIM will tell others that they fell or bumped into something – DENYING the ABUSER inflicted the harm.
What is it that makes the Victim (Voter) think that the prior beatings and abuses are not going to happen again and the next time it will be worse because the Abuser (Government) knows that the Victim hasn’t got the guts to stand up against the abuser. The Abuser has sent out thousands of glossy, colored, ads telling everyone how wonderful he is and that it is the OTHER Abuser that is the bad guy. Due to a public indoctrination program that has been HIGHLY successful for several decades (public schools) the Victim has been taught to FEEL rather than THINK and looks at the colored, glossy ads with the perfect photo’s and FEEL that that Politicians really does love them….. again, in spite of years of terrible abuse of power.
Having had past experiences in my life with female friends who were in abusive relationships, I know how fruitless it is most of the time to get involved in helping them. They come to you for help and then fall for the lies and go back to the abuser and you become the bad guy — until the next time they get beat up.
People complained under Carter – Clinton – Bush (the previous abuses) and those all led us to today and Obama with his HOPE AND CHANGE. The perfect picture of ABUSE – I’m sorry and I offer you HOPE and CHANGE (never saying WHAT that Hope and CHANGE will be – it is left to the IMAGINATION of the VICTIM).
I see the political relationship in America as that of the BATTERED VOTER SYNDROME. The voter is upset over being abused but the minute the Abuser promises to not abuse again and to straighten things out (which they never do) the VICTIM (voter) goes running back into the arms of the ABUSER.
Look at the length of time so many politicians have been in office – living off of what they steal from us. Public SERVICE was never intended to be a career. It was never intended to be a position in which the SERVANT could increase their TAKE from the People, especially without any approval from the People. Pensions were never a part of their compensation until THEY (abusive treatment) voted it in for themselves – the People had no say in that happening. The Unconstitutional Spending for Unconstitutional agencies, actions, trips, Czars, aids, private airplanes, and all the other percs these thieves (ABUSERS) have taken from us for their comfort and pleasure are just more of the SYNDROME - The People fail to realize that there are more of us than there are of the Abusers and we should STOP placating these domestic abusers.
It is long past time to kick them out in what ever manner it is that eliminates them from abusing us any longer. Each and every time you cast a vote for any of them that have been in more than two House terms (4 years total) or one Senate term (6 years) then you are telling them loud and clear - I like being ABUSED – hit me again - do it until you kill me.
When you accept the lie that if you vote for Candidate C you are then putting Candidate A (or B) in office. That is such an insane argument, IMHO, because my vote didn’t go to either thief – it goes to the one I want in office and the stupid statement that my voting for C puts A or B in office is not even kindergarten logic. What puts A or B in office is the people who cast their votes FOR A or B. I didn’t add to A or B vote totals in any way.
2 Cor 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? (KJV)
If you go into a restaurant and there are three bowls put in front of you to choose from. One picture perfect appearing bowl contains rat poison, another delicious looking bowl contains embalming fluid, and the last one has a not particularly appetizing looking bowl is free of all polluted ingredients…. Which bowl will you choose? You don’t know that two bowls contain poisons – all you get to see is the APPEARANCE. As history reveals – most choose APPEARANCE over substance. Does anyone tell the *servers* to do a TASTE TEST in front of your eyes – which would expose the poisoned items? Nope – Looks is what matters – not content.
Many Voters say they want to be free of the corruption but do they really? If they do then why do they continue to soak in it?
2 Cor 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, (KJV)
Now that the voters have brought forth Barabbas for the General Elections - which UNCLEAN THING are you going to cast your vote for to rule over you?
I plan to vote but my vote will not go to those *choices* the Two Headed Snake places on the ballot for me to choose which poison I want to swallow. My vote will be written in - I will cast MY vote for the person of MY choice – not the choice of the Snake.
It isn’t who you are - It is WHOSE you are ! ! ! !
