Campaigning for the Presidential elections in 2016. (The cycle of lies)
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.
- When Lunatics Run the Asylum. A View of politics today.
The Psychology of Why a small "Minority" Rules our World Today.
Living in a world that is upside down
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.
