    Are politics/communities a waste of time for americans?

    For most Americans, an intelligent thing would be to practice apolitical standoint, like being asexual, having no political participation. My parents were like this. They never voted. They were not really conservative or liberal. I am seeing the wisdom of this myself lately. As an American, most foreigners don't respect you because they think you are stupid and know nothing about politics, so straight off being globally political is a waste of time. Then you have the fact that if you don't really care who the president is. After all you only live once, and while it was a good idea to vote for kerry to get rid of bush, he actually lost. Then you continually face movements that seek to up everyone else down like libertarian. If I was dead, I couldn't vote. Since I will be dead open day as a matter of fact, then why vote now? Why waste even a moment more of your life needlessly voting or even thinking about the I government that you can't control? Just act as a stupid as possible and make it as hard as possible for anyone to do anhing political and have fun! Absolutely do not volunteer for anything political even if it's only the green party.

    Spare me your Horatio Alger sophisms. I'm 36. I don't care about the north American class system and education scheme. After all I'm an artist. I like Painting, not advancing my social position with the next greatest car or home ownership. My parents didn't own a home. I was born in apartment. I don't care about American way of life. I don't see why anyone literally has to deal with this crap. Up north they complain that if you don't vote you are a hipster and hipsters are bad. I don't even understand. Why pressure someone into a community? Are you some kind of commmunity fascists? Give me a break one time.

    Can't have friends when you are dead. One day you will be dead. I had a weird dream the other night actually. I the dream I was in a Buddhist sect that removed the body from the mind through a ritual where they put you in a box and filled it with sand or cement to freeze the motion of the body and force the mind out. I was reminded of this story from the journey to the west where The monk Tripitaka is sent to heaven to get they diamond sutra or something and upon crossing a river in a ferry, he sees his own body floating by in the current and is told he has transcended the mortal form. I think I am transcended beyond this mortal coil. I don't have to vote. A advanced person doesn't have a nationality like American and doesn't have to vote with mortals.
