SK: Political Messiahs In Tailored Suits

Read please the latest from Sultan Knish.


…When a nation’s leaders are corrupt, then the nation can be saved, but when the people worship them, then all is truly lost. In the coming time, we will have to determine who will go forth to stand for us in the district, the state and the nation. And balancing pragmatism against principles, having done the best we can, cast our die and hope that a higher power will guide our hand.

But all this depends on keeping a clear head when we play the game and on remembering that our cause is not the man, but the idea of freedom. We do not labor to find ourselves a better master, but to make ourselves the masters of those who would rule over us. And if we fail to do that, if we close our eyes, then our blindfolds will become our chains.

100 million or more of your Free Sh*t Army “countrymen” want you and your tribe plundered and/or beaten into submission.

Or dead.

Remember that.
