Election Without Choice

Elegant Floral Wedding Invitation - art by Anne Vis
You are probably wondering how the title of this post relates to the image. I'll tell you. This is how I keep my sanity in a world that seems completely crazy ... creating beauty and sending angel wishes to those of us dreaming about a happy future ...

So now that we got that clarified, let's explore what is going on with all these elections. In the US we have been talking about it for what seems forever and we still have to wait till November before anything becomes clear.
In the Netherlands on the other hand, the elections are in a few weeks, and barely anybody has started talking about it ... politicians just yesterday returned from the beach ... So my conclusion would be that apparently they don't care.
Which of course fits in nicely with the general image of the Dutch: indifference.
And don't say I am not very sad about that. One starts to wonder if the entire population is drugged? Maybe the chemtrails that we see on a daily basis? (no, the stuff about the coffee shops is very exaggerated if you take the population at large into consideration).
There is not really much to choose is the experience, as in the end they all talk with each other, comfortably seal the ideals in the bin and do whatever the whim of the day dictates.
What would I like to see on the agenda that is not there?
1. A solid way to prevent the banks from creating money. The information can be found on the website of Positive Money.
And I don't think it is a good idea to stay in the Euro with the way things have been handled so far (which is a shame). The messing about has been going on way too long already ...
2. Cooperation versus competition. It was of course from the beginning a bad idea to sell out the properties of the population to greedy companies. They need to be returned to the rightful owners: the people! And: who ever thought it would work to let doctors compete? Are they out of their mind??!!!
3. Lower tax rates. "The economy" (do you also start resenting that word?) will do better, but most importantly: the PEOPLE will fare better when they are not taxed to the roof.
Just to mention a few topics ... :-)

In the US we can safely say the situation is hopeless ... If Obama manages to create a policy that has even Dick Cheney enthusiastic beyond words, what might happen if Romney wins ... better not think about it ... it is already bad enough as it is.

And now that we're at it: it looks like there are still some angelic interventions needed for Assange ...
I guess it is clear why I prefer to draw cats and create wedding invitations ... :-)
Also take a look at my art website, which is undergoing major changes and expansions currently:
