I've been very disappointed to learn that folks I've respected for being radical and even progressive have come out to support Hillary Clinton. I am disappointed because they have fallen away from, diverged from my world view. This feeds my paranoia about being demoralized into giving up and just trying to live out my life in peace and harmony with my neighbors. Why should I be concerned about US and NATO efforts of empire building? Destabilization and destruction of Middle Eastern states, transfer of arms from Libya to Turkish terrorists and Al Nustra formerly Al Qaeda of Iraq, the transfer of Libyan central bank reserves to France and the subsequent disintegration of the notion to create an alternative currency for African countries, (Who the hell did he think he was anyway?) or with the continuing support of the 1/10 percent's media psyops to misinform the public about the US and NATO role in the creation maintenance of ISIS and other terrorists groups trying to break apart Syria so the Saudis and their friends can build an oil pipeline to Europe to break Russia's hold, or the encirclement of not Russia through eastern Europe and the Central Asian "stans", but the hubris of thinking that the US is powerful enough to threaten the Chinese as well has suffered a temporary setback with the failed Turkish coup having driven Erdogan into Putin's arms and talks of a second pipeline to include Iran, Iraq (yes "our" broken down Iraq), and Syrah"oops. It is an incredible state of affairs and of course main stream will not write about it, but I expected my learned intellectual radical models to be more informed -- How in the world could they support someone who laughs about killing the leader of another country? Romania seeking NATO admission extradites Guccifer to the US where he "suicides" in prison. Assange admits that Seth a staffer from the DNC who was "wantonly" gunned down in DC was a source of leaked DNC voice and electronic mail. This is very messy and very silly
All this talk of how to decide who to vote for depending on whether or not one lives in a swing state is really a bunch of horse sh*t. What's moral about voting for Hillary regardless of what state one lives in? This is part of the continuing saga of being divided and conquered. If you want change, you don't get it by voting for someone that no matter what they promise, isn't going to do a god damn thing about what they promised you, except what they promise now is the opposite of what they promise their masters before, which is: the nuclear option is on the table, Assad isn't any help at all so he has to go, Putin is arrogant, so we will put missiles in Poland by 2018 and possibly Romania and spend $33 Billion a year paying our friends to rip-off the public good with nuclear weapon upgrades over 30 years"what? Thank god all of us will be in dead radioactive half life decay before that happens the TPP is the gold standard but I don't support it now, Black men are super predators, but thank you Jesus! The Blacks sure do like us Clintons, even though the Reverend Wright is a terrorist; fracking is good and big deal that the GSA "suggests" that those red fracking bastards in Texas might have to stop fracking, because it is causing earthquakes; as a supporter of Monsanto's Franken food and its efforts to corner the world's seeds, and contribute to the deaths of hundreds of farmers tricked into using their seeds in India, while the national legislature declares that states have no right to require that providers of food for consumption inform the purchaser of what is in the food, say what?? -- Vote for Hillary? At this point all of the proxies for the major candidates are sorting through how much of an edge they can get away with if they need to rig the machines without there being too much furor just like they have done the past. Ok, so a word about Trump"how about toast? He is a stalking horse and not up to doing the 1/10's bidding. Hillary on the other hand has auditioned and is well trained to continue the hubris work of American Empire building in the second era of the Age of Reagan.
