Obama, Romney, Gingrich, What's the Difference?

Parties

The question I’m asking is: will it make any difference to the majority of the American people, if either Obama gets re elected, or if Gingrich or Romney beat him?

I know, you will say, but Obama is a Democrat and the others Republican.

To this I say: it makes little difference as they are all puppets for the faceless elite that really run the country.

To these elite it does not matter which party wins, as long as the President from that party looks after their interests. As long as the elite’s interests are looked after, they don’t mind what else the Presidents do. So the only real difference is how the President looks after their interests and what they do after that, neither of which is of interest to the elite. Neither though, really helps the American people.

Presidents

America, or the majority of American people, will only ever restore their place of economic sustainability and respect when they elect a President that puts the interests of the majority first.

In the last few decades it appears that the person, who wins the election, is the one that does the best job of convincing the people that they will bring change. Alas, after election, where have the real changes been?

Yet again, the candidates are talking of bringing change but how can they when they have already sold their souls to the elite?

The only time a change will happen, the only time a change can happen, is when the people elect a president that is not a puppet of the elite.

Run Offs

How can the people know when a candidate is not a puppet?

How can they elect a candidate that is not a puppet?

This of course is the hard question but I believe that the answer lies in the run offs.

Currently the run offs, last for months and the final winner, is the one that outlast the financial rigors of such a race. That means that the final winner is always one who has the backing of the elite, who always would sponsor any candidate prepared to “sell their soul”. This ensures that any Presidential candidate, incumbent or other, is one that has committed himself to putting the interests of the elite first.

One solution could be that in the run offs; the people vote en mass for the candidate who had the least sponsorship. However, as the elite already play a major part in who can vote in a run off, it may not be the total answer.

Another possibility would be that all the States vote on the same day. This would reduce the opportunity for the elite to broadcast the brainwashing ads in favor of their puppets.

Future

Election after election, the American people have voted for a President that was most convincing in making people believe he could bring change, just to be disappointed.

The people obviously know that it is change that is needed, yet because that change has to be brought about by elected politicians it doesn’t and can’t happen under the current electoral system.

This time around the people should not vote for the person who promises, to use his position, to bring change in Washington but vote for one who promises to change the way in which people get to Washington.

Until the United States electoral system undergoes radical changes, the American people and the country will remain in decline whilst the American elite continue to increase their wealth and power in the world.

The American people are patriots of their country. The elite, and their political puppets, are patriots of their dollar only.

Diogenes hit the nail on the head...crony capitalism is what stands in the way of the American people. Greed is the first thing served before the people, and it usually involves bringing harm to the people.

My honest opinion on this whole presidential election nonsense is they all promise the world in which they very well know that they can not do and once they are in office there are more important issues in which they face and the promised change gets put to the back of the bus... Until it comes time for re-election ... Then it is how can I pass as much through congress and how quick can I get it done to make me look like i kept all my promises. I seriously hate the fact that all you see on television is negative ads about each presidential candidate in which is wrong because our children are watching the television and I know I try to teach my children to be positive not negative... I feel no matter who gets into office there is no real way to fix all the problems that we are facing... For the simple fact that they can not even tell the truth on most situations they tell you what you want to hear or what they think you want to hear...

The shadow government owns all the horses in the race, so whether it's Obama or Romney, their horse wins and we lose.

Americans don't vote for our leaders - they're appointed. Sure, we go through the motions, but we only live in a symbolic democracy not a real one. Ever wonder why the status quo in Washington D.C. never changes?

Look, there is a huge, well-trained standing army in our way to Washington. This is exactly why the Colonialists did not want a standing army, because the standing army always defends the ones who sign their paychecks and pins medals to their chests.

It is naive to think that we can vote these charlatans out of office. They know they are puppets and they know who the puppet masters are...and it's not the American people.

First, awesome Hub.

Heres a thought: Our system would be turned topsy-turvy if the winner of any political contest was chosen on the basis of least 'dollars spent per vote'. Right now, it gives all appearances of buying votes.

For Max: Concur, Congress is as much the problem as the Executive is. However, dissolving Congress arbitrarily is out of the question. Such an action would need to be taken through the currently approved amendment process prescribed in our Constitution. Voting Congressmen out every two years (and Senators every six years) is not out of the question, and would be consistent with the current system of governance that we the people have authorized. We need to reconsider who we want as representatives in 2012 just as much as we need to reconsider who we want as our chief executive. In my humble opinion, we the people should stick to considering actions that we can do (vote and exercise our freedom to express our views), and not demand others do things for us out of the goodness of their hearts. As you say, 'The people could be the most powerful lobby if it could wake up!' Concur again.

"dissolve congress, have a referendum"

Very wise words. It works well for the UK.

When I read this hub, I thought I was reading what I would have written in the hub.

I totally agree with your view.

Thanks

We always assumed that the US president was the most powerful man in the world. Now more and more, we are realizing that he is not! Congress is. Congress is the channel through which the elite accesses to power. Therefore, I'm proposing another alternative, dissolve the congress! Have a referendum!

The people could be the most powerful lobby if it could wake up!

Your critical mind is an inspiration!

Awesome hub!

I stopped voting a long time ago when I realized that my life changes very little depending on who is the President/Puppet. Voting is pointless and the 2000 election is proof beyond a shadow of a doubt, it basically came down to one person a Republican Judge.

Who cares if Al Baby, doesn't want a recount how about all the people that voted?

Until we change the way officials are selected the status quo will continue!

None of them will change the "greed culture." I'm afraid there is little respect for the American system and foreign policy any more; for the people and the culture, yes, but not the government.

What has happened to real integrity? That's the question. We seem to see it in other, more humble, nations and their leaders, but in the US and the UK it's a distant memory.
