Yes, our system is rigged, and Trump will make it WORSE

with 10 comments

There were some interesting debate a while back on Intelligence Squared about the two party system that we have in the United States, and also about money in U.S. elections.  I think that these both show different ways that our election system is now “rigged”.  But, the biggest one, is with the two party system.  Because, I can understand how many of my conservative friends might not want to vote for Hillary.  But, there has been no serious counter evidence to suggest that Trump wouldn’t use the NSA, and any other means possible to keep himself in power.  The solution, is to hold your nose, vote Hillary, and then have a Constitutional Convention.

Honestly, if I had my druthers, I’d vote for Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate.  And, if California seems to be safely non-Trump, I might still vote for Gary Johnson. BUT, if my vote for Gary Johnson could in any way potentially put Trump in as president, then just like both Bernie Sanders and Michael Bloomberg, I could only vote for Clinton.

We got to get ourselves out of this place.  Democracy doesn’t work when people don’t have real choice.  And only a Constitutional Convention can solve that.   But, I want to ask my friends who currently are planning to vote for Trump:  Do you really believe our country has any better chance of having a less rigged system with Trump as president?

  1. I don’t want an Authoritarian Oligarch of America!

    I do desire a Competent President with a Cooperative Congress. I believe HRC would be an effective President.

    However, the Partizan Obstruction of our Legislative, Administrative & Budgetary functions by Congress,
    throughout the last several years Must End.

    It’s a monumental squandering of National resources.

  2. First of all, You made this lame deceitful statement:

    “there has been no serious counter evidence to suggest that Trump wouldn’t use the NSA, and any other means possible to keep himself in power.”


    Where is your proof that Trump ever indicated that he was going to use the NSA to retain power? Dumb. Untrue. Deceitful. Really really stupid.

    You know, anyone can make up shit and talk as if it’s true. How about these misrepresentations I just made up about Hillary:

    LIE #1:

    “There has been no serious counter evidence to suggest that Hillery would not go around raping children and engaging in pedophile activities with little kids”

    LIE #2:

    “There has been no serious counter evidence to suggest that Hillery will not start World War III and nuke the entire world into oblivion, being the mad power hungry bitch she is.”

    Deceitful insinuations are easy to make up, but sticking to the truth is always a lot harder. I’d steer clear from gross misrepresentations, because it reduces your credibility to almost nothing, and suggests a strong lack of personal integrity.

    Beware of Deceit

  3. Then you made this incredibly lame statement: “The solution, is to hold your nose, vote Hillary”

    The “holding your nose” excuse has been used by nefarious miscreants since the beginning of time to justify their evil support for hidious monsters. You are doing the same. All you are doing is “sanitizing” your own inner feelings to make yourself feel good for supporting someone who has been complicit in killings, corruption, and tyranny.

    Historical Fact #1:

    Millions of Germans in the 1930s who did not directly support Hiltler said “plug your nose” to justify supporting Hilter, thinking it would get them off the hook for Hitler’s atrocities. In reality, they were also culpable. And Hillary supporters are just as culpable for Hillary’s crimes when they support her. Twisting logic in your head to make you feel better does not get you off the hook.

    Historical Fact #2:

    Millions of people in communist Russia were well aware of Lenin’s murder of 10 Million innocent Russian citizens, when they “plugged their nose” to support the murder of 40 Million more people under Joseph Stalin. In fact, Lenin had his own way of saying “plug your nose.” He simply said “You need to break a few eggs to make an omlet” which is just another way of justifying evil in a way that puts the evil miscreant’s mind at ease, tricking it into thinking they are doing good for humanity.

    Have you no decency in supporting Hllary in such as manner?

  4. Here’s a video of a senior Obama Democratic operative openly laughing at the idea that our system is a Democracy:


    It’s the Democrats you need to woory about, if you are afraid that our democracy is going to be taken from us and replaced by a dictator.

    Trump will NEVER be caught laughing at Democracy. Never. Nada. Not in a million years. It’s Obama, Hillary, and the Democrats who think democracy and out constitution is a joke, as this video proves.

  5. Hillary is a War Mongerer, and that is what you support. Trump has over and again advocated peace with Russia. Hillary advocates War.

    My Proof of Hillary’s desire for war is in this video:


    I give proof of what I say. But you fail to provide proof of almost every claim you made. You provide silly quotes from other liberals, but nothing of substance in the form of actual proof.

    Disgraceful and Disgusting.

  6. Vote Hillary! Trump is a fraud. He is not out to help the middle class. His tax plan reduces the tax on the rich by approximately 70%, that being a 75% reduction in capital gains tax rate, and 57% reduction in corporate taxes, the two taxes the rich primarily pay, but reduces middle class payroll taxes by only 20%.

    Once again, the middle class gets screwed. We have a major problem in this country, that being income disparity. The rich keep getting richer by exploiting and overtaxing the middle class, and Trump’s plan accelerates this process. Trump is basically saying that it is perfectly acceptable for the rich to function as parasites. Of course, he and his cronies are conveniently on the receiving side of this bloodsucking.

    Also, be aware that his tax plan will cause hyper-inflation as it increases the deficit by $9-Trillion, or roughly 9X the current Obama deficit. Trump claims to have whittled down the cost of his plan in terms of lost tax revenue by about two-thirds of the projected $9 Trillion, to a deficit of only $3 trillion, but of course, gives no details on how this is supposed to happen. If we take Trump for his word, which many blind fools will, his best case revenue projection still generates 3X the Obama deficit, which will be greater than any deficit in the history of the United States, therefore being dangerously inflationary.

    Hillary is now the more conservative of the two candidates since her budget plan, while having a huge deficit similar in size to Obama’s, actually comes closer to balancing the budget than Trump’s.

    Here’s some detail on the Trump budget:


    Beware of Republicans bearing tax plans. It always turns out bad. Once a parasite, always a parasite. The taste of the victim’s blood is just too hard for a Republican to resist.

    Vote Hillary!

  7. What does Jacob have in common with White supremacists?

    His mutual hatred for Donald Trump. LOL! If you are a Trump hater, maybe it’s time to join the KKK.

  9. Haiti has the poorest of the world’s poor. They needed to be helped after being devastated by natural disaster several years ago.

    Then enters the predator, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton:

    She then robs Haiti of its rightful share of humanitarian donatations given for Hait disaster relief using this criminal money laundering scheme:


    Any liberal who still supports Hillary after watching this video is dispicable trash.

    Hillary is Trash

  10. The Clinton Foundation operates more-or-less like an Organized Crime Syndicate where donations are received by the Clintons in return for political favors at the highest levels of government. Only 5.7% of Clinton Foundation Budget actually went to charity as explained in the video below. The rest went to the Clintons and their friends.


    Can somebody please explain why the Clintons have not yet been sentenced to jail? Donald Trump is about to change that.

    Hillary is a Crook
