Comedian Adam Carolla with Brilliant Advice on Who NOT to Vote For!

Written by Onan Coca


The brilliant and hilarious Adam Carolla recently signed on with the wonderful Prager University to do his own course explaining “who NOT to vote for” in an election. With the nation in the midst of a contentious primary and on the cusp of the 2016 national elections, Carolla’s advice is timely, wise and important. The comedian (and popular podcast host) focuses in on one particular aspect of the popular politician who should be avoided like the plague – the idea that the politicians will “fight for you.”

Carolla uses mid-day advertising to expertly illustrate exactly what he means.

The same people that say they’re going to fight for you are the same people trying to get you free crap when you won’t get off your ever enlarging butt that’s now melding and becoming one with your sofa.

Fixing your screwed up life is not the government’s job. And by the way, when does the government do a good job at fixing anything? I mean, I live in Los Angeles. We pay the most in taxes, and we get the least in education.

I want the government to do stuff that I can’t do. Stop a war, end a plague. That kind of stuff . Stuff involving me? Stuff involving my family? Stuff involving my community? I can handle that…

So let’s review. I’m not going to tell you who to vote for. I’ll tell you who not to vote for. Don’t vote for the guy who says he’s going to get rid of all your problems, take care of you, and tuck your kids in at night

You see, humans need challenges to overcome, just like a muscle needs resistance to grow. In a zero gravity environment an astronaut’s muscles atrophy because there is no resistance. The government giving you a bunch of handouts and living your life for you is basically the equivalent of doing pushups in outer space.

“Look ma I can clap five times just like Rocky in between sets!”

Big government is like the void of space. It’s massive, constantly expanding and if we immerse ourselves in it, we’ll simply wither away.
