Meritocracy for All!

A quote from Wal-Mart's CEO taken from Zero Hedge: "'About 11 p.m. customers start to come in and shop, fill their grocery basket with basic items – baby formula, milk, bread, eggs – and continue to shop and mill about the store until midnight when government electronic benefits cards get activated, and then the checkout starts and occurs. And our sales for those first few hours on the first of the month are substantially and significantly higher.' Wal-Mart CEO"

Clearly a great tragedy has befallen our once great nation!  As the great Alexander Tytler might have said, "A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship."

Democracy has failed, just as predicted by Tytler, and as evidenced by the monthly sales receipts at America's favorite shopping center.  Forget the $3 trillion and counting we're spening on wars for freedom, the real terrorists are pushing shopping carts around Wal-Mart at midnight on the first of the month!  I say we send a few F-18s back across the ocean and start bombing the real threats to our freedoms- deadbeat dependents on our overly-generous government entitlement programs!  It's time to eliminate runaway big-government waste!  It's time for Meritocracy!

Our movement for merit based government appointment/aide should begin with a reality television show everyone would love called, "Weed-Out!"  A camera crew would follow three "Weed-Out" judges as they confront and report unworthy dependents on government entitlement programs.  To keep the liberal media/ lawyer-scum from suing the show, it would also have a second segment where a corporate executive accused of fraud or any number of other liberal business-stifling laws was reported and sent to trial for the charges brought against them.

In this way, "Weed-Out" would have one segment that any given viewer would find appealing and another segment that they would find appalling.  Both would compel anyone to watch the show religiously!

With enough of a following, the "Weed-Out" judges would become more powerful than our bloated government, making them the de facto leaders of our Meritocracy!  Then, everyone would see that the way to make America great again is to trim through the government fat and give this country what it needs- six reality show judge patriots- our 21st century founding fathers!  It's the only way to avoid the inevitable socialism fueled dictatorship we're headed for!
