Well, we are nearing the end of another race within the respective political parties for the position of President of the United States. As you may already know, readers, the race on the Democratic side, has not been on the up and up. Bernie Sanders, the candidate of choice for most progressives and Dems alike, and I might add, Independents as well, has not been given the respect, and coverage he deserved in the Democratic race. There have been many allegations of the mishandling of ballots, flipped ballots and voters being turned away for some of the most ridiculous reasons.
I encourage voters, and readers of this post to make up their own minds as to what has been going on, and what should be done. This author does not trust the system to be fair, otherwise, we would not have the problems that we have seen in regards to voting.
Just so readers understand, the Republican National Convention (RNC), and the Democratic National Convention (DNC) are not government agencies. They are both private, political organizations. Let me repeat that. They are PRIVATE POLITICAL ORGANIZATIONS. Let that sink in for a minute. For the last few decades, and longer, the American people have been hoodwinked by private political organizations, who have worked tirelessly to undermine your vote and your choice to elect the nation's leader.
I believe we are on the very edge of the collapse of our countries political system. What should be done? We are under obligation to wrest back from the, One Percent, (as they are classified), the power we have so willingly given away.
The weakness, the greatest weakness the one percent has, is the dollar. Our greatest weakness is apathy. Our greatest strengths are the dollar and our voices. Think about that for a second.
The ultra rich uses the power of the dollar to subdue the American people, buy politicians through lobbying (bribery), and to use the media to keep America as ignorant as possible. The dollar is the greatest weakness the one percent has. In other words, without us spending and buying the goods corporations produce, or at least, spend at a minimum, the one percent looses its power, one dollar at a time.
As a people, we are more powerful than the one percent wants to acknowledge.
