In keeping with this objective of world domination, the 1% decided early on that Hillary Clinton should be the next US president. As Secretary of State she had demonstrated an unwavering commitment to serving their interests.
As we fumble our way through this farcical campaign, it has become obvious that Trump, wittingly or unwittingly, has served as a foil to rouse an apathetic electorate to get out and vote for Clinton. In reality, Trump has no chance -- none -- of becoming our president. We know that the entire Democratic Party infrastructure employed measures that insured Hillary would "win" the primaries. If necessary, the count on the electronic voting machines will be flipped in her favor on November 8th.
In electing a US president, we have a responsibility to think globally even though the corporate-owned media and both political parties have colluded to keep our focus fastened on domestic problems and policies.
Why is it that we are so easily led into thinking only of ourselves? How can we in good conscience cast our votes for a candidate who is intent on inflicting misery, devastation, and death on innocent people in other parts of the world?
Aren't we making a terrible trade-off by sacrificing the lives of thousands in order to hold on to our illusions that if we vote for Hillary Clinton we will improve the lives of women and children; that we will have a Supreme Court that will rule in our favor; that passage of the TPP will be vetoed; that lobbying for fracking will stop; and that funds will be available for long-neglected community needs?
Maybe at this point we cannot prevent Clinton's election, but we can prevent a landslide that would give her a mandate to do anything she pleases.
Why not vote for P*E*A*C*E in our time and in our world by voting for Jill Stein?
