Zombie Government

 

Dead save for an unquenchable lust for power, they roam the halls of Congress, the White House and federal administrative agencies, a ghastly simulacrum of republican life. The Beltway Dead spend and regulate aimlessly, torpid unless aroused by the sound of representative democracy.  Awakened, they move swiftly and as one, attacking with mindless savagery in the Alinsky style until the target is destroyed or, infected, joins in their statist pursuits.

The Dead were alive once but that was before—before the spread of the virus that robbed them of the faculties of constitutional perception and independent thought.  While alive, Progressives among them established popular controls on private enterprise, promising a cleaner environment, safer automobiles, and affordable health insurance for all.  Now, the Dead have turned these mechanisms against those they served in life, making energy and mobility and health care less available and less affordable.  Insensate to grim reality, the rote goals issue from necrotic lips, the prompter swept by lifeless eyes.

Popular discontent, an animating concern for living officials, is beyond the ken of re-animated politicians of either party.  Democrats robotically implement an unpopular law destroying health insurance for millions while Republicans mindlessly resurrect an illegal alien amnesty valued chiefly by corporate and political elites.  The Dead refuse to heed the cries of the living.

If we can save one child’s health insurance … the Beltway Dead do not care, because this does not advance evisceration of the Second Amendment.  If we can protect the environment for millions of birds sentenced to death-by-wind-turbine … the Beltway Dead cannot be stirred,  because this does not hasten the arrival of energy utopia.  If millions lose their healthcare … the Beltway Dead would have them enroll in Medicaid, their new dependency infecting them with the Obama virus that caused the carnage in the first place.

And if the damage can be wrought swiftly enough, a zombie electorate will rise to entrench our zombie government.

    Zombies yes, but they feed not on the flesh of the live, but on their misery.  The more the misery, the stronger they become.

    Is it a zombie government, or a vampire government?

    Hey, why choose?  It’s both!  The responsiveness and intellectual honesty of a zombie, with the parasitic appetites of a vampire.

    A vampie?  Zompire?  Help me out here.

    Well said (written). Thank you. I fear a majority of the current voting citizenry could well be qualified as that zombie electorate you wrote of above. They ignore, judge, attack, and vote; and we’re left slandered, unrepresented, and without standing, footing the bill.

    In this post-apocalyptic world filled with more zombies than human beings, survivors must come to grips with the reality that the enemy can’t think, can’t reason, can’t feel, can’t talk, can’t relate, can’t build, can’t create, can’t share, can’t change, can’t be trained or negotiated with.  They exist to eat you.  They don’t discriminate among the old, sick, pregnant, young, smart, or stupid.  They show no mercy, have no plan, and are driven by no motives.  They are pure destruction. 

    Zombies act in concert.  If one smells human flesh and starts moaning and dragging his mangled, decrepit body toward the source, they all do, sometimes in herds thousands strong.  They simply respond.  The ultimate “groupthink.”

    George, we were both wrong.

    Turns out, it’s a Kraken government.

    Great post. And incredibly accurate. The only things missing from the picture are the EBT cards, joints, government-issued condoms, and unemployment stubs in their pockets.

    Where will we find the zombie hunters? Not in the republican party.
