Today was a first for me and I’m sure most of America. We watched as our POTUS shed tears. In a very white state like Ohio our first black President cried a little bit. Gone are the days when men holding positions of high power appear to remain stoic in emotionally impacted situations. For instance, surviving a 4 year term and still feeling the love in crowds amassing 5 times the size of those gathering on behalf of your opponent. Gathering voluntarily in Obama’s case, rather than being held in chilly temperatures for hours, then being given grief for wanting to leave as reported to have occurred at a rally for Romney. What a mind-twisting, game the two parties play. As council in a court of law, acts one way in front of their client as if they are fighting with all of their muster for justice, when in fact after it’s over both sides prosecutor and defender go off to dinner or cocktails or golf. Never again to think on the client or how they deceived them into thinking the system is worthy of such extreme investment, both emotionally and financially. When it’s not.
What most people still refuse to realize is that the POTUS has not got the power they would like to give him. Believe it or not ~ he has “handlers” and they are instructed by higher echelon who really do run the world. If Obama or any member of high office chooses to buck this well established ancient society of elite. . .Pow! Another dead Kennedy. Tough truth to be sure, but I needed to get that off of my chest. I’ve said it many times before and every once in awhile it seems to sound with some resonance on those who will listen. It seems as though the phrase “conspiracy theorist” isn’t as condescending as it used to be.
I’m a mail-in voter. I don’t do lines if I can help it. I live in a rather small town so the lines would be short, but I like it this way. From the comfort of my own home I can study each issue for days if I wish and color in the bubbles at my leisure. People wonder why I vote at all when I believe the way I do about our government. As if voting for one of the two parties is what today is all about. Most people don’t even know that voting for a third party candidate increases funding for future campaigns. Rates are determined according to the percentage of votes a candidate receives. In other words, the more Americans that pay attention to a particular third party, the more that particular third party gets paid. True, these amounts are morsels among the feasts enjoyed by Dems and Reps, yet a morsel is sustenance still. So, if we only vote for the 2 major parties we limit our options considerably. We could even eliminate other parties completely, their extinction caused by indifference and apathy.
I believe the two party system is in deep trouble and getting deeper. I do not in any way believe any of the third party candidates will become POTUS, however I had to vote my heart. I was unable to vote the lesser of two evils as most chose to do. I did vote Obama the 1st time around hoping for that change he represented so many years ago. This time I’m a little older and a lot wiser. Obama will win, this isn’t even a contest. He doesn’t need my vote. He does need a little cricket on his shoulder telling him how to shut down the war machine, nuclear power plants, banksters, and more. I HOPE this time around we do see change.
