Time for We The People to Take Control of Our Elections — Trump is Dangerous!

The US electorate was so hungry for an “outsider” in the presidency, self-proclaimed “outsider” Donald Trump managed to win against the penultimate “insider” Hillary Clinton.

Of course, the GOPwinger Crosscheck voter elimination system, in play in 30 GOP-controlled states (great reason to vote against the GOP) — much like Clinton had rigged the Democratic Primary (great reason to keep Clinton away from Democrats) — actually helped Trump win the General Election.

Also not helpful is the fact only about 50% of those who can vote actually vote in national elections; 33% vote in state elections and 18% vote in municipal elections. Voter suppression, coupled with an obscene infusion of money, is the name of the game in American politics.

Trump’s victory had nothing to do with Russians!

First Came a 2013 Watering Down of The 1965 Voting Rights Act:

A crucial element to the landmark 1965 Voting Rights Act was struck down in 2013 due to a Republican-controlled Supreme Court. It was generally thought this would mostly affect the southern states where Jim Crow voting laws had long been a problem. But, sadly, diminishing the Voting Rights Act opened the door for Crosscheck to come into play whereby minority voters have been getting lynched from the voting rolls by zip codes and a laptop.

Then came The 2014 Mid-Term Election:

Then Came The 2016 Presidential Election:

Next Came Trump!

Statements of The Trump America Elected:

“Throw them out into the cold,” Trump ordered security, as protesters shouted “Bernie! Bernie!” during his rally Thursday night in Burlington, Vt.

“Don’t give them their coats,” Trump added. “No coats! Confiscate their coats.”

“It’s about 10 degrees below zero outside … You can keep his coat; tell him we’ll send it to him in a couple of weeks….”

Is Trump Perfect For a Violent America?

Maybe. The below chart shows Trump has a political following ripe for violence:

2018 Will Show The Red Line Has Worsened!

Even the elite New York City Metropolitan Republican Club is in tune with the violent side of GOPwinger politics:

Now Comes The Pro-Trump MAGA Bomber!

Essentially, how Trump deals …

Forgive The Inelegant Language — Political Emphasis

Will Trump change the quality of his incendiary rhetoric? Will the current crop of US politicians do anything about voter suppression? Doubtful!

America’s Oligarch Enrichment Project:

You see, the electorate doesn’t yet realize it lives under America’s Oligarch Enrichment Project, that Congress legislates on behalf of corporations over the needs of people (see Princeton Study on Oligarchy).

Congress sports a 15% approval rate coupled to a 95% re-election rate as a monopolized media of five corporations, controlling 90% of all media, spew lies, distortions, omissions, perversions of truth in the cause of money and control of the populace.

No doubt America’s oligarchs would have been happier with Clinton as they knew they’d get smooth and clear sailing. With Clinton playing a key role in the Obama Administration, 95% of the wealth generated in America went to the fat cats at the top. But, no matter his whiskers and rough edges, they’re perfectly content with Trump. Under Trump the pro-Oligarch economic return is close to 85%.

So long as Bernie Sanders ain’t around, it’s a win-win!

Conclusion?

Since JFK got shot America has lived under neo-conservative and neo-liberal presidential administrations. There is no more right vs. left. Today, the political spectrum is far-right and center-right. This is precisely why America is the way it is today. This must change! It’s time for America politically to go way-way left!
