Is there any subject that politicians will leave alone in the race to be elected to the national trough?
Any point from which they recoil from their desire to have control over we mere mortals?
An act too far fetched to contemplate in the quest for glory and grandiose titles?
I would wager not. Those attracted to a life in politics are an abnormal breed, devoid of the humanity which beats in varying degrees in the rest of the population.
We shall have to wait a few days to see which politician jumps on the bandwagon of the latest piece of research to emanate from one of those committees that advise the government on ‘gay health issues’.
Follow me over to the US – where in Bend, Oregon, a state acknowledged as being the 4th most liberal in the US, ‘experts’ have been studying the sad subject of teen suicides.
They have discovered that teenagers are more likely to commit suicide in politically right-wing areas which don’t have active ‘gay support programmes’.
You think they are just talking about teenage suicides amongst the fledgling gay population, don’t you?
That might be logical, but no, it seems that ‘suicide rates for all teens rise’ if you don’t have a preponderance of left wing voters or gay rights support programmes.
There is only one logical conclusion to this study, and that is that left wing voters must be bussed in to live in right-wing areas. Or right-wing voters change their preference so not to have blood on their hands.
Sure, it will slew the voting results; it will give an automatic left wing permanent majority in government – but what is that compared to preventing the second leading cause of death amongst young Oregonians aged 10 – 24?
Curiously, or rather sadly, on the day this research was handed to politicians, a young Oregonian stabbed himself to death in front of a live audience in Bend.
They’ve forced 20% of the population to smoke in the cold and wet to save young lives; they’ve bussed the population around the country on the basis of colour in the name of equality; do you really think anyone would baulk at the idea of bussing voters round the country to create a Democrat majority to ‘save young lives’? You have more faith than I.
A special copy of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ to the first person who spots this spurious piece of political research being used as ‘vote Democrat – save the cheeeldren’.
