What’s really going on?

So for my first few posts I touched on the current political climate, in terms of the upcoming presidential election. But I’d be remissed if I didn’t give my honest opinion on this whole process.

The first time I voted was in the 1996 general election. President Clinton was running against Senator Bob Dole, and I was 18 years old at the time but had a slight inkling of how things really worked. Even though I had my cynical views on elections and the election process I cast my ballot nonetheless. I have always looked at my vote as my cover charge to the bitch-fest that takes place before, during, and after elections. If you don’t pay the cover charge, you have no reason to bitch.  The following election in 2000 would be the one to confirm my suspicions about just how corrupt and full of shit the entire process really is. As many of you remember that year Vice President Al Gore ran against then Texas governor George W. Bush. The election was decided in the courts instead of “by the people” and Bush became the president after losing the popular vote. This single event proved that greater powers decide who the “elected officials” in this country are and how it is decided. Names and people that we will never know or hear of plan and decide these elections long before they occur. The campaigning and everything else is nothing more than an elaborate theatrical production meant to distract the populace and give the illusion that they actually have a say in what happens.

Now people will tell you that this is a democracy and we have the right to vote and our vote does count for something. That’s bullshit. True we have the ability to go and cast a ballot, and pay that cover charge to give us the right to bitch, but it’s only that. These elections, and the candidates who end up winning these elections are the faces we know. We’ll never get a chance to see what happens behind the curtains because the people who pull all these strings have paid for the anonymity to be able to have this influence. By no means am I a conspiracy theorist, but if you really buy into the illusion of your vote counting for something, you are being fooled. Everything is always about one thing, and one thing only – money. When you hear all this talk about the 1% that is the distribution of wealth, which equates to power. That 1% decides who the next president is going to be, who the next senator from Idaho is going to be, who the president of Afghanistan is going to be, the president of Egypt. You get the idea.

This entire election was decided years ago. When Trump was made the standard bearer for the Republican party, and the “heavyweights” of the party were broomed to the side, you kind of knew that this whole thing has been set up for a Clinton win. Even Bernie Sanders who I talked about yesterday is a pawn in this whole game. Each and every person that has come and gone in this election cycle has a role to play in this production. Even you and I have a part in this show, that’s when that cover charge comes into play. People need to believe that this whole thing is real, they want to believe that their voice and what they feel and go through matters. People don’t want to believe that what I’m talking about could actually be possible, but it is.

I know the way I’m describing it makes it seem like it’s this dark smokey room with a bunch of men seated around a table deciding the fate of the world. It may not be exactly that way, but the way it’s being packaged and sold to us is not the way it is either.
