Apathy... who cares?

I was all fired up to exercise my democratic right to vote... I was going to vote Yes just because creepy Sinn Fein and the sinister Libertas (their founder's company has links to the US military, 'nuff said) were advocating a No vote. Basically, I find it a good idea to be in opposition to to those who would justify murder for political ends... But our present government also has blood on their hands - Shannon. So, what to do? Lies, propaganda, bullshit, it never ends. I am naive. And what's wrong with that? To expect people to behave with a bit of decency to each other, their planet and future generations? Yeah, crazy thinking, I know. Did you notice Peak Oil being mentioned in mainstream media recently? Those who raised it a couple of years back were dismissed as cranks, hippies, socialists or worse. Like global warming, it is now accepted fact. Now the greatest evil which could befall Western Civilization looms: Recession! Aaaaagggghhh!!! run screaming, everyone, in blind panic and terror! Aaaaaaggghhhhhh! Like a slowdown in our relentless consumption of resources and the subsequent filth we spew as a result is the worst thing that could happen. Jesus, we might have to pause from our never-ending trips to the shops to buy more crap we don't need/ can't afford anyway, to consider just what the fuck we are actually doing to ourselves: We are like an obscenely obese swine gorging ourselves to the point we vomit and shit all over ourselves, then gorging more, covered in our own vile filth, excrement and puke, and also covering our starving neighbour in it, our starving neighbour whose back-breaking labour has made our depraved lifestyle possible. Fuck you, Sinn Fein and your poisonous ideology, Fuck you, Libertas, you self-serving snakes, and Fuck you, Fianna Fail for a million and one reasons.

So, no, I wont be voting.
