Have To Come to The Conclusion....

The media is full of s**t.

So is whatever establishment politics means. Full of it.

They want to control our minds, thoughts and free will. So full of s**t.

Guilt us into their thinking. Guilt us into a vote. Oh, so incredibility full of it.

As if we don't have free will....

To believe in what is right, To Believe in OUR conscious. To Vote **** No Matter Who We Are Voting For. How full of it can they be?

Beyond the point of common understanding that if we believe their s**t, we are no better than blind sheep. Blind sheep you say?

Yes, to the point we just do, instead of think, question, question again and ponder -- then decide what is best or best left alone.

Why do WE keep falling for the same, stale, overly used up s**t?

Have you asked yourself why -- really why?

Are you scared? Are you afraid? Are you trying to get it to fit in? Do you think maybe one day if you wish hard enough -- the s**t will change?


Google it!

If you are sick and tired of the s**t, do what YOU THINK is right. Not because of guilt, or a demand but because in the end - we are born ALONE and will die ALONE.

Because what you do in the voting booth or don't do is up to you.

Because you don't have to check every section of a ballot.

Because in some states, you can if you want, write in "Mickey Mouse". It probably won't count but if you feel better afterwards...

Because you don't have to keep falling for the s**t.

And while you at it, find New Media. The Alternative Type Like "Independent Underground Radio LIVE" and tell to s**t to take a long hop off a short pier.

Now, don't ya feel better now.

Been here long enough to have really thick skin, and I figured all that out years ago. I don't come here to argue politics, I come here to see how the rest of you feel. Quit arguing a long time ago, does nothing for me. Basically, I have one vote, and I use it every chance I get. That's really all any of us have and this being a democratic society, the majority rules. Sometimes you're in it, sometimes your not. That's life.

43 states allow write-in candidates but the candidate must file some paperwork in 35 of them in order to have the votes tallied and be eligible to serve if elected.

So if Bernie doesn't get the Dem nomination, there will be no way to elect him without some cooperation from him.

I know he has said he won't run independent, but at the same time, I don't see how he could ignore so many passionate people who are determined to make him our next commander-in-chief. I have signed a couple of petitions asking him to keep running no matter what. He has to understand there is just too much at stake! There won't be a next time.

I do not watch MSM and I do not miss it. And it has lowered my blood pressure! I have control of what I put into my mind. Yes. No blankety blank allowed. I am moving forward voting FOR and having hope FOR and feeling somewhat sanguine, smile.

But yeah, one of the things that convinced me that most Dem pols were on the take was their failure to object to the consolidation of media ownership.
