They were ripe for a Trump.

If you haven't already, I would strongly urge you to view the film The Brainwashing of my Dad.

There is a major, deliberate, and well funded, VERY EFFECTIVE propaganda campaign that has been working on these people's minds for decades. Some of them can be, and have been "deprogrammed".

We're not working on an even intellectual playing field, but one that has been heavily distorted by a propaganda machine that prevents honest debate and discussion from even happening in our society.

The real enemies are the ones behind the scenes pulling the strings. I wish that we would focus our sites more on them.

My answer is no.

We no longer have a free press, and haven't for a long time. We no longer have any integrity to our elections.

The candidate and party that wins fewer votes ends up in power, and nobody can even say with any authority how many votes someone got, as our elections are unauditable, while millions of people are being out and out disenfranchised.

I fear that we are going to become even less democratic than we currently are, but I strongly believe that we are already not a democracy.
