Campaigning for the Presidential elections in 2016. (The cycle of lies)

"Pathological"

defined for the intent of this article:

It is a morbid condition due to, or involving, dis-ease, emotional sickness, ailing, unhealthy, unbalanced, tainted, disordered, abnormal, psychotic and / or psychoneurosis. (from Websters dictionary)

The state of mankind that leads to the never ending cycle of lies that continuously fuels and sustains man made global societal unrest and turmoil by deliberate design.

Humanity has not progressed in any significant psycho-social betterment over the past 2,000 years. In fact it has seemed to have regressed beyond any logical or normal expectations that accompany the 'natural' evolution of mental or psychological maturity in humankind.

Where are the politicians now? Attacking women's rights

Being homeless and poor is now a crime in the U.S.

Exploitation of man's weakness

In 2015 one would expect to see a more mature level of political campaigning. Especially on the GOP side of the aisle. It is like watching the movie: Dumb and Dumber.

Instead politicians cling to the 2,000 year old political ideas of motivating people's emotional responses with fear mongering in order to manipulate the political outcome.

Example: using 'abortion' and women's health issues as a tool to turn people against each other is not a new concept. As long as people react negatively the way we see them doing today, it will continue to be a topic of political pandering to draw in the uneducated in society.

2,000 years ago women who were pregnant outside of wedlock were stoned to death. There was no regard for the unborn fetus since it was supposedly the product of some kind evil act toward an unseen almighty entity of wrath and vengeance.

In today's world religious and right wing zealots judge others for things that are basically none of their business for the same superstitious reasons.

We (as a society) can't force politicians or greedy corporate entities to stop causing famine, or hardship on the middle class or denigrating the poor in order to fuel their lustful pursuit of money and power. So they turn the public onto itself by attacking women for private and personal decisions between a woman and her physician, in order to take the limelight of themselves.

In a world where the population explosion is sucking the life out of this planet this argument is less than logically important or (subject for discussion or debate) by politicians and even religious leaders.

It is outrageously ignorant.

The argument that "all life is precious" is a pipe dream of the ignorant and a tool of the politicians. Destroying women's lives for control of their reproductive "rights" and denying health care to injured veterans, mentally and/or physically disabled children, or refusing to provide for the saving of starving children in our society, is one of the worst forms of hypocrisy one can imagine.

And yet, the religious ignoramuses who take up that gauntlet to make themselves appear to be devout and righteous, are doing nothing more than joining the ranks of the political hypocrites.

"Render unto Caesar......"

The government is not, or should not be, in the "sin" business.

But being frank about why they are using abortion as a campaign promise of reform is critical to understanding its importance in the "political" world of lies and deceit.

Understanding what each political party stands for is the most basic essential premise of this kind of political pandering.

>Democrats (the party) are about social improvement and equality for everyone as individuals.

>The new Republicans are about pandering to the affluent society in hopes of gaining some of their wealth and power.

>The 'tea party' portion of the GOP are about disrupting the system without loyalty to either the common people, or the affluent. But by virtue of their republican party affiliation, they are hurting the average person and aiding and abetting the affluent and corporate agendas. This may be accidental as most of the tea party members are not privy to how the establishment really works.

With that being said, with the affluent community that today buys the loyalty of most politicians it is essential that political campaigning confine itself to social issues that the average citizen is capable of understanding at the most 'base' intellectual level and reacts to at the most 'base' religious level.

They (politicians) cannot allow real issues to surface that the average citizen would be furious about.

Politicians tout their war on poverty, but in reality their war is on the poor and homeless class itself because corporate America has complained that their presence is harming their businesses and diminishing their profits. So government officials are simply sweeping them out of view without giving them any help or hope of getting out of poverty.

Hiding corporate and wall street subversion of government itself is the primary goal of the "conservative" party today. The affluent corporate entities and those who run them write their own rules and laws to protect themselves against retribution by the general public if they find out their true intent; then pay politicians to vote them into law without even reading them.
The U.S. government is doomed to failure unless congress is radically cleansed of these parasites that occupy Washington D.C. today and the crooks in Wall Street, as well as those tea party run states that are attacking the middle class and the poor in the same matter.
That can never be accomplished without reversing public apathy on a global scale.

Living in a world that is upside down

The 'Apocalypse'

that 'religions' predict is truly at hand.

The apocalyptic attacks on society are not being done to humanity by God Versus Satan or (Good versus Evil).

It is being done to mankind by mankind itself. Or at least by a very small minority who see themselves as the rulers of humanity for their own personal agendas.
The idea that "God" will intervene is a total cop-out for society to have to take some responsibility upon itself for what is going on in the world around them. It is an excuse for not having the wherewithal to take personal responsibility to get involved in the very society they live in.
When this country (or any other country around the world) falls, there will be no one to blame but mankind itself.
When the majority of society subjugates (sublets) its rights of control to a minority of greedy liars and thieves there can be no other end expected.
If there is truly a God 'directing' the evolution of man only a divine 'intervention' will save mankind from its own apathy and dependence on superstition and fear.

So, as the year 2015 comes to a close and the elections of 2016 conclude next year, the responsibilty for that outcome will totally rest on the people themselves for either taking part in the 'decision making' for ourselves or relinquishing our power to a few who have no interest in individual equality or well being. And whose only interest is their own agendas of gaining unfettered wealth and power at the expense of the majority.

We can take a respite from all the turmoil and try to have a peaceful holiday season; but we must then face our virtual reality and brace ourselves for a tumultuous new year with all the lies, deceits, and false promises that each political party's struggle for dominance and control will be reigning down upon us for the coming year.

I for the life of me can not understand Trump's success. He is a bigot yet he is ahead in the polls?

It's a very sad state of affairs, d.william. The right wing -- and "the system" itself -- promote divisiveness between the rich and the poor out of fear itself. They are encouraged to fear falling into poverty and try desperately to associate themselves with the wealthy. The real cause of the disparity in wealth today is the rise of corporate power (derived from mergers and acquisitions that has brought us a resurgence of monopolies.) What we need today is a new "trust buster" like President Teddy Roosevelt. Unless the monopolies are broken up and prevented from expanding our country is destined to fall into further conflict and ultimate failure. Our system is broken.

This 'Trump' thing has everyone baffled. He is an idiot of the first order and thinking about him as president is downright frightening. The other choices are just as bad. They are fanatical in different ways, but equally scary.

I was watching BBC World News the other day and they report that the rest of the world is following these campaigns closely as the outcome will effect the entire world. They report the GOP as "war mongering" "radical" and "a threat to global peace". (I wonder how they came to those conclusions?)

The Irish have a lottery that is betting on the outcome of who will be elected president in the U.S., and the odds are in the favor of Trump. Since this kind of lottery / gambling is legal in Ireland they too, are watching closely and big money is being bet on who will win.

This farce is a disgrace to America and it will probably never recover in the eyes of the rest of the world if any of those dolts actually win the White House. Russia's president Putin is complimenting Trump for his success and probably sees him as a comrade in arms.

W.F.T:

Thanks for reading and commenting. Your are right about the monopolies being destructive to society and the need to break them up. The only candidate who has voiced that opinion is Democrat Bernie Sanders. He also believes as i do that Wall Street should be taken down a peg or two. I wrote an article a while back on the evils of wall street but i don't think people understood the gravity of that need. The only people who give any care about Wall Street are the wealthy who make billions of dollars with their speculation and hedge betting. It is nothing but a legal gambling casino for the wealthy.

The GOP - run states are now passing laws that make the homeless against the law because corporate america is complaining that they are bad for business and negatively effect their net profits.

It is way more important to worry about women who might consider abortion, and fighting to give back the power to insurance companies to refuse coverage for preexisting conditions, than to take on any social issues that don't benefit the wealthy . Our system IS truly broken, and doomed to worsen in the next year.

If there's not a Herculean effort to get out the vote of everyday Americans (who often fail to get to the polls) the consequences could be fatal to our democracy.

I agree with you in theory, but what everyone refuses to admit and face head on is how vulnerable voting machines are to manipulation. Unless there is a nationwide confirmation of voting outcomes by physically counting the ballots to make sure they are reflective of voting machine results we can never be sure if elections (results) are actually fair (correct) or not.

We are victims of fraud in every other aspect of our lives - voting results are not exempt by simply 'wanting' them to be fair and honest. There can be no exceptions when it comes to deceptions.
