"All the world is but a stage, and all the men and women merely players..." ~ William Shakespeare

The four year cycle is upon us again. A necessary stage act. The critical and nationwide ruse commonly referred to as an election - a selection process necessary to maintain the all important illusion that we, the commoners, have a voice in our governance.

Once again, Americans in massive numbers rally around and pay homage to their favorite presidential candidate - one of the two that have been presented as our choices, one of which will lead us to higher places - a better life - a promising future for our children. The person that will pose as the human symbol of our nation. The other, undoubtedly a villian in disguise, that will bring certain ruin to us all.

But our choices, our choosing, our preferences have nothing to do with it.

First, in a carefully created process designed by our powers-that-be to insure their absolute control, a hodge-podge of state primary selection processes - best understood by those that hide behind the curtain - is carefully manipulated with the utmost of skill and determination as the illusion begins.

As the process progresses state by state, the contenders for the highest office in the land are carefully maneuvered into place by cabals of self-serving, secretive people that rule from behind the curtain. These are self-appointed and moneyed interests, they are our true masters and they hold the real levers of power. Could it be coincidence that most US presidents descend from British Royalty and/or were confirmed Masons? The caste system is alive and well in America. It has been from the very beginning.

No, little Bobby, not everyone can grow up to be the president.

During the campaign, each candidate spouts carefully rehearsed and lofty phrases. Slogans best suited for bumper stickers that are refined daily, espousing ideals and inspiration designed to invoke pride and patriotism that will, in practice, be meaningless after the selection is announced.

The age-old, effective tradition of mudslinging and personal attacks intensifies as the big day approaches. Critical issues devolve into simplistic soundbites, debates are analyzed, re-analyzed, critiqued and assessed. Substance is always discarded for fascinations with body language or slips of the tongue. Is he wearing his "support our troops" lapel pin?

All important aspects of the grand charade - Americans love a horse race.

Meanwhile, an army of vote manipulators fan out in all directions to lay their groundwork and shape the outcome before the voting begins. The pre-vote is being massaged at this very moment. The fraudster co-conspiators will further shape the vote count afterwards in darkened rooms and through the use of magical software.

Diebold and ES&S, whose machines will account for 80% of the votes in the 2008 election, are owned by brothers. They plan a celebration - again.

There is no federal agency with regulatory authority or oversight of the US voting machine industry. None.

As the big day approaches, the commentators, the pundits, the talking heads and the experts revel in the intrigue, Americans will be fixed to their screens in anticipation. The insiders and the networks will all rejoice in the grand deception. Viewership and profits soar. Corporate advertisers will be pleased. Backslapping will be widespread.

The media propaganda hawkers will have pleased it's masters in the all important management of the public - again. Careers will be advanced, most notably, those of the cooperative and of high profile - those that best understand the nod and wink - the secret handshake. Editors, managers and directors of the grand stage will be free of a litany of subtle, yet damaging official reprisals. News media owners will have furthered the grand agenda - the elaborate hoax disguised as a contest.

All will be well within the institutions of professional deception and public psychology. The most elaborate sleight of hand, the epitome of conspiracies, with the grandest of results carries on in perpetuity - the control and steering of the great ship America and it's inattentive occupants and owners.
