There is no such thing as Republican or Democrat. It is an illusion to make us little people think we have some control. But behind the scenes, both parties are run by the same people. You can call them whatever you want, Globalists, Elites, Illuminati, it doesn’t make much difference. The truth is they are in control, and we are not.
Every 4 years, they pick 2 people that will both do their agenda, and they let us decide between them. There is never really a difference. If you think there is, you are fooling yourself. Just look at our past few presidents. George Bush was supposed to be a conservative, or a Republican. They stand for small government, yet he made it bigger. They stand for less government spending, yet he spent more. They stand for less government involvement in foreign wars, yet he started a few. Then came Barack Obama. He is supposed to be a Liberal, aka a Democrat. He told us he would stop former president Bush’s wars, yet he started more. He told us he would roll back Bushes “surveillance state” yet he expanded it. He doubled Bush’s spending, and he divided the country.
So what makes Republican or Democrat? Gay rights? Less then 2% of the population is gay, so that is really a non issue. Minimum wage? 4.3% of the population earns at (or below) the minimum wage, so that is a non issue also. Student loan debt? 40% of student loan recipients aren’t making payments anyway, so that isn’t much of an issue. What about Islamic rights? Less then 1% of the population of the USA is Muslim, so this isn’t a real issue either.
So is it Abortion and Gun Control? Those are really the two biggest red herrings in politics. No Republican will ever be able to ban abortions, and no Democrat will ever be able to ban guns. They don’t even try. When the so called “abortion pill” (RU-486) was approved by the FDA, someone asked (then) president Bush if he would try to overturn the ruling. His reply was “I don’t think a president can do that”.
President Obama’s “attempts” at gun control have done nothing but increase gun sales. His most recent attempt was to make people on the “no fly list” ineligible to buy a gun. This wasn’t an attempt at gun control as much as it was an attempt to eliminate the “no fly list”. Obama had already tried to eliminate the “no fly list” early in his presidency by claiming it had no due process and was therefore unconstitutional. The courts said that use of a private service (commercial aircraft travel) was not a right, and therefore no rights were being taken away by the “no fly list”. To use the “no fly list” as a way to take away a persons right to bear arms would therefore make the “no fly list” unconstitutional and force it to be eliminated.
So as you can see,
Democrats like to say that Republicans want to eliminate government regulation and let big business run amok. Yet it was (former) President Bill Clinton who repealed Glass-Steagall and let big business run amok and destroy the economy.
There is a saying that the left wing, and the right wing belong to the same bird. This is the truth most people don’t want to acknowledge. This is also why the 2016 election is becoming so interesting.
The 2016 presidential election started like many others. The people in charge put up their choices, and we were supposed to choose between them. On the Republican side, they had Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, Rick Santorum, Marco Rubio, and Mike Huckabee. You also had people outside the inner circle that had enough money or support to throw their hats in the ring like Rand Paul, Carly Fiorina, Ben Carson and Donald Trump.
The Democrats didn’t really give anyone much of a choice. They had Hillary Clinton, and Martin O’Malley. They also had the outsider candidate Bernie Sanders.
Of course, the plan for both parties was to eliminate the outsiders, and let us “choose” between which of their candidates we wanted. The Republicans quickly eliminated Rand Paul portraying him as a nut job like his father. Ben Carson was comically portrayed as an idiot even though he is a successful brain surgeon with multiple Phd’s. Carly Fiorina was likely bought out by being given an opportunity to be vice president under a Ted Cruz campaign.
But Donald Trump surged. It seemed the conservatives were growing weary of the candidates they people in charge kept feeding them. No matter what the mainstream media, or the people in charge did, Donald Trump continued to surge.
On the Democrat side, things were much the same. O’mallet was just there to give the voters the illusion of choice. Or maybe he was there as a back up plan in case Hillary actually got indicted. Either way, it was clear that the people in charge viewed Bernie Sanders as a weirdo fringe candidate. He was the left’s version of Rand Paul. He shouldn’t be an issue.
But he was. Much like on the Republican side, the Democrats were also tired of having their candidate picked for them. They knew Hillary Clinton was no different then Bill Clinton, Barack Obama or even George Bush. They all worked for the same people.
Americans wanted to put someone new in charge. And picking a different party didn’t change who was really in charge. The people needed to choose candidates that weren’t chosen for them.
The Republican voters nominated Donald Trump. This blindsided the people in charge. However, it wasn’t that big of a deal, because they still had Hillary Clinton. They just needed to make sure she was the nominee for the Democrats. After all, the people in power need at least one of the candidates (the one that wins) to be theirs if they hope to remain in power. So the people in charge did everything they could to eliminate Bernie Sanders. They paid people to protest Trump rallies to make it look like Sanders supporters were violent thugs. They paid people to infiltrate Sanders relies and cause problems to make Sanders supporters look like undisciplined kids. They portrayed Sanders supporters as lazy people looking for a free ride. And when all of that didn’t work, they resorted to flat out election fraud and just stole the nomination.
So now we have the candidate that the people in charge want, and we have the candidate that is against them.
Of course the people in charge want to make it look like we have a stable politician, and a crazy “outsider” running. And they are already looking for a back up plan. There has been rumors of other “establishment” (ie people in charge) conservative candidates making an independent run for the white house. This seems like it will do little for the person running and only serve to divide the conservative vote between the people who are really fed up with the “establishment” and the people who believe all the propaganda the mainstream media is pushing. Of course, that will tilt the election in favor of the establishment candidate, Hillary Clinton.
I find it interesting to note that most “liberal” people that I know have always complained about the Republican party being involved in “Crony Capitalism”, the “Military Industrial Complex” , and siding with “Wall St” and the “Big Banks” over the people. These are all things that Hillary Clinton is well known for doing. Donald Trump, however, has a history of being against all of them. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have always had the exact same stance on Gay Marriage (until Hillary Clinton started running for president, then she changed her tune). Hillary Clinton, and Donald Trump have both been vocally Pro-Choice. Trump has been skirting the question during this election to play to the Pro-Life voters, but he has always said that he doesn’t like abortion, but still believes in choice. in 1999, Trump said in an interview “I’m very pro-choice, I hate the concept of abortion. I hate it. I hate everything it stands for. I cringe when I listen to people debating the subject. But you still — I just believe in choice.”
Of course, Hillary Clinton takes her support for abortion to another level stating that an unborn child has no rights up until the moment it is born, and therefore abortion should be legal up until the child is actually born. I think even the most stern Pro-Choice support would say that this is an extremist view.
Many people find fault in Donald Trumps plan to build a wall on the southern boarder with Mexico. The media wrongly states that Trump is against immigration, when in reality, Trump has stated that it is illegal immigration that he is against. Hillary Clinton is also against illegal immigration and has actually voted in support of building a wall on the southern boarder with Mexico. The difference is Clinton wants the taxpayers (us) to pay for it, Trump wants Mexico to pay for it.
Hillary Clinton has supported most “free trade” agreements that have killed millions of US jobs. Donald Trump has consistently opposed “free trade” deals. This is another case where “free trade” is usually considered something “Republicans” support, and “Democrats” oppose. In reality, the “establishment” supports free trade, and everyone else opposes it.
So the reality of the 2016 US Presidential election is that it is currently the “establishment” vs the people. The “establishment” will do everything they can to secure their win. Hillary Clinton will most likely be elected president, and if not a third (as yet un named) choice will be. The only they will let Trump win, is if they get him to agree to their terms.
If, for some strange reason, the “establishment” fails to stop Trumps election, it will truly be a 2nd American Revolution. If Hillary Clinton is elected, it will show most of us that we are truly being controlled by the elite. Either way, the future has a dark cloud above it.
