I wish for neither Clinton nor Trump to preside over my nation, the United States of America. I feel today – 22 October 2016 CE – that neither front-running candidate will actually become president. I suspect my musing is about 20% prediction and 80% wishful thinking. (I do not claim to have any psychic abilities). Both of these relatively unpopular and very flawed candidates would make our nation worse, not better.
Trump is obviously mentally ill. Warmonger Hillary Clinton voted for the War against Iraq – the biggest United States blunder in modern times, and as Bernie Sanders says, Hillary has very poor judgement.
Clearly, the Clinton Machine conspired with Debbie Wasserman Schultz to shut out the clear winner of the Democratic Party Primary. Bernie Sanders clearly won the Primary by a wide margin. Definite cheating brought us a very unpopular candidate.
I have always voted for the Democrat for president up until now. I cannot bring myself to vote either D or R this time. I pick Pacific Green Progressive Jill Stein on my ballot even though part of me wants my write-in pick to be Bernie Sanders. Will my protest vote make a difference? Probably not.
A national leader must put tremendous effort into manipulating our thoughts, which includes fear tactics. What are Americans afraid of? DAESH a.k.a. Islamic State a.k.a. ISIS, of course. Did you ever notice that ISIS never attacks Israel? ISIS is the Big Bad Boogey Man that Hillary uses to scare you into picking her as your leader. Clinton pacifies you by claiming that defeating ISIS is atop her agenda. Actually, the CIA and Israel installed the Caliph of the Islamic State – Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi – whose real name is Simon Elliott, who has Jewish parents. The Cheney / Bush tactic of attacking Muslim states via overt warfare would be too messy and problematic at this point. The purpose of DAESH is to covertly destroy Muslim states from within. Governments typically use religion to manipulate people. Consider what DAESH is actually doing. They are not attacking Israel at all, but rather, their victims are mostly Muslim. If it looks like a duck and acts like a duck and sounds like a duck, then it is probably a duck. Do not be naïve. Know full well that ISIS is a US Government tool.
Bernie Sanders led the effort NOT to invade Iraq. Hillary Clinton voted to ATTACK Iraq. Bernie Sanders should be President. Unfortunately, Americans have only the illusion of choice. Picking Clinton or picking Trump is a lose-lose situation.
I created the web site Metric Pioneer in 2012. What has been the response? Some very enthusiastic pro-metric Americans have jumped on the metric bandwagon, and that is great! But generally, very few Americans are interested in measurement reform. If so many Americans are stupid enough to support mentally ill pussy-grabber Donald Trump, then it is no wonder that so many Americans are too stupid to go metric.
