This election cycle, the candidates, and the mainstream media are a joke. Sadly many people still like hearing and even saying the same jokes over and over. The punch lines never change, the laughter fades, and the reality of the situation kicks in. These candidates do not represent the American people, but instead are front men or spokespeople for global bankers. With the teleprompter checked, speech cards are written, and the talking points memorized, the candidates all take their cues and get ready to regurgitate what the elite are trying to pump into our lives through a dishonest media that the elite own and operate themselves.
There are those that have been down this road in ’08 and ’12 and cannot be a part of it any longer. We saw our last chance at real liberty promoted by arguably the last Statesman left in Washington – Ron Paul. We saw the political machine for what it really is and it left a bad taste in our mouths ever since. Ron Paul was ignored at every possible moment in the election from the media coverage to even speaking opportunities during live debates. We protested, shouted, entered into the ring in a legitimate format in order to help the message of liberty ring, but was silenced at every opportunity. We saw the R.N.C. make rule changes in the middle of the game that helped squeeze out our guy and suppressed the American people’s voice in order to prop up the “selected” candidate, Mitt Romney. Oh boy, what deception and thievery we witness in the so-called “democratic process.”
Now here we are 4 years later and the game remains the same. The bishops and knights are protecting the King and Queen and us pawns are left picking up the pieces to a puzzle game that doesn’t make any sense. Trying to keep up with the two parties is redundant and an impossible task. Now it is Donald Trump on the short end of the stick.
I am in no way comparing Donald Trump to Ron Paul. Both men are polar opposites of one another, however, Donald Trump finds himself in the same type of political atmosphere that Ron Paul was in. Albeit much harder to silence the outspoken demeanor of Donald Trump. In both instances, the voting public has spoken and for the most part, have been largely ignored and steered.
While Donald Trump is pretty much funding his own campaign and doing it quite successfully, it is his brash words and unapologetic policies that is keeping him in the mainstream media. Much like Ron Paul, his rallies are filled to capacity. The signs are waving and chants of “Make America great again” is resonating the hall or auditorium. The people have spoken and the R.N.C. is playing games in order to promote an “anyone but Trump” campaign instead of focusing on the real enemy of the party – Hillary Clinton.
We are in the Constitutional Republic that has a democratic electing process, but to see it played out in front of you and you would have a hard time understanding it. It comes down to delegates and not the voters’ voice which I still have to ask the question. “Why participate in an election if only to make me feel like I am being heard? When it is clear I am not.” Indeed, if it is going to come down to delegates or super delegates then what is the purpose of having people turn out to the polls to vote? Seriously, what is the point?
Listening to Ted Cruz is like listening to the wimpy kid starting trouble between to people and then narrating their argument. He is the most dishonest politician I have seen in a while. Dishonest, abrasive, and a liar, Ted Cruz continues to try to buy delegates from the Trump pool. While the R.N.C. claims that this is fair and legal ask yourself if it is right? Should money be welcomed in a political process in determining the next President? It is bad enough our voices are being ignored, but now we are selling delegates to the higher bidder?
It is silly and childish to believe that we have to elect anyone to get our “rights” back, but that is the mentality of people today. To watch them in the election cycle is comical if it were not true. They say, “Vote for this guy so we can get our country back.” That has to be the most asinine comment ever. If you have to vote for a certain individual in order to get your rights back then you need to realize that you never had rights, to begin with. Rights are inalienable and can not be taken away. The fact that we are losing rights at a breakneck speed isn’t a testament to how corrupt the system is. Instead, it is an admission of how complacent we have become in protecting our rights and way of life. And now they own the voting process, too.
Watching the mainstream media should be a method employed at Gitmo as its number one torture method. I would ask if these people realize who they sold their souls to, but I would think that anyone who would go along with this agenda doesn’t have a soul, to begin with. It doesn’t matter which outlet I am watching the narrative is the same. Ted Cruz has made the rounds on all of them to try to clarify that he is just playing by the rules. Well “lying Ted” that is what we are tired of and what we have little to no faith in and that is your set of rules. Focus on what the voting public of your party wants and not your wants and desires. If you would only listen you would find out that the public clearly does not want you.
What we will see at the Republican convention is anyone’s guess, but I do not see it coming out good for the G.O.P. There have been threats from groups that will riot if Trump is nominated and threats from other groups if Trump is not elected. The party is in disarray and the overseers of the party seem to be alright with that. We are seeing a party self-destruct right front of us and it is ugly. What will come out of this election remains to be seen, but I can guess a bigger Exodus of voters for the next election cycle in 2020.
Former Ron Paul supporters recognized the trend coming and chose to not participate in the circus. And now, our fears are confirmed. It is rigged and Presidents are selected not elected.
