GET SERIOUS: Electing a PRESIDENT is NOT A Popularity Contest

Written by William Pauwels on October 26, 2016

Trump is being persecuted because of things he’s said; Hillary should be persecuted for what she’s done. But the mafia-like Democrat Party and Leftist Media won’t have any part of that distinction.

Unfortunately, America is being taken over by these illegitimate forces and Trump has inadvertently played into their hands via a flawed character and a decades-old, “locker-room”, personal conversation.

I have a great fear that America is gradually being moved into a Socialistic framework by the Democrats and Leftist Media. It’s a de facto Marxist/Fabian-Socialistic ideology which has never worked — where people are controlled by a centralized government feigning Democrat principles, while exercising autocratic powers over everyone’s lives.

Working people already slave four to six months a year for federal, state and local governments — and they want more. And non-workers benefit, living better than the kings of old lived off of the dole.

As we approach November 8th, Election Day, it’s well to be reminded of some of the economic and governance fundamentals that have enabled the USA to become the preeminent economic and social power in the world. I fear we are squandering it with all of the immature cultural debating that is dominating the media. You’d think we were electing a high school president, where personality is the primary consideration. For goodness sake, we are electing someone who can manage and lead our nation, our economy, our military, and our international relations and commitments.

And the leading contender has failed at almost everything she has attempted, e.g., as Secretary-of-State. The fiasco she has left behind at the State Department is, frankly, unbelievable. With the help of the Leftist media, she has diverted the nation’s attention away from her incompetence and lack of leadership ability (which she clearly doesn’t have) to a campaign to elect a female for the sake of false gender equality. She is a corrupt de facto Socialist, surrounded by people of questionable ability and commitment to the American-Way.

I’m afraid the America we grew up in is vanishing. Hillary, Bill Clinton, Obama, the Democrat Party, the leftist News Media, etc. are corrupt, agnostic, Socialistic — and they have seized control of our government and Media. De facto Marxism/Fabian-Socialism is winning-out. And uninformed voters have taken the bait, which has suddenly emerged to secure another eight years of their de facto Marxist/Fabian-Socialist ideology. Voters are being manipulated by one of the most corrupt candidates, campaigns and parties in American History.
