Some Final Thoughts On The U.S. Presidential Election

"Ultimately, it depends on whether Americans go into the voting booth and see status quo vs. blowing up the status quo, or if they see Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton...

Should I Vote Repocrat Or Demublican?

Once it becomes clear that the system is what it is and that the political leaders have zero concern for their constituents, except as indentured servants - once the voter recognizes that the next election holds no vain hope for redemption - the voter may begin to see his true position more objectively.

Democracy Is War By Other Means

Democratic politics is a vital power ritual for the government. It makes the government all-important, all-relevant, all-preoccupying; this is especially so during election season. Using democratic politics to foment civil strife is how the government divides and more fully conquers its subjects.

Here's What Happened When A Hillary-Supporting MIT Professor Decided To Analyze Her Emails...

"A few hours after we released the [study] I received a message from a friend telling me that what I had done was “a huge mistake” and that I should have waited to post this until “later in the year.” ...and as the story peaked on Reddit, a moderator single-handedly removed it in an authoritarian move, and justified this unilateral silencing of the post by adding a rule banning “sites that serve a political agenda or that otherwise induce drama.” Of course, the rule was added AFTER the post was removed."

Doug Noland Interview: "In The Next Crisis The Fed's Balance Sheet Will Hit $10 Trillion"
