This election is more than just electing someone to be the president, it is much more than that. Again we are presented with the lesser of two evils. In reality, there are more people running than Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. Most progressive like Jill Stein and agree with her on most issues. Yet, it seems that the discourse that we hear on the mainstream media and even online is about Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Why is this so? The answer is they don't want you to know about people running for president besides Democrats and Republicans. This is always been like this since I've been born and I've been around for 65 years. George Wallace former governor of Alabama ran for president and he made a good showing. Ralph Nader ran for president and he made a good showing. What really scared to two parties was one Ross Perot ran for president and got 20% of the vote.

I'm watching both political parties destroy themselves. This makes me extremely happy, in fact I'm almost giddy. The Republicans did it to themselves by nominating Donald Trump, and the Democrats did it to themselves by stealing thelection from Bernie Sanders and nominating Hillary Clinton. Now both parties have problems with people leaving. The Republicans for instance, had a caucus of over 50 elected representatives that said they didn't want Donald Trump to be the Republican nominee so then it they want to nominate someone else.

The Democrats think they have this thing locked up because of the disarray of the Republicans but in actuality, they really don't. Most progressives are leaning towards Jill Stein and even if she doesn't get elected, there will be so many incumbents that will lose seats and I believe Jill Stein and Gary Johnson together will get over 30% of the vote. This bodes well for the future because we may get rid of this two-party duopoly that are both run by the corporate world.

Now here's the way I feel and I don't want to scare you, but I believe if Hillary Clinton is elected president of the United States, there may never be another election. This belligerence towards Russia may very well be our undoing. In reality, there is no reason why we are so bellicose towards Russia. When I talked to Dr. Paul Craig Roberts click here he said that he thought that this was a way to keep the military-industrial complex in business. He also said was that the neocons and there are many on the Clinton advisory team, actually believe they can win a nuclear war with Russia.

Putting a missile system in Poland supposedly, an ABM system, can be converted in minutes to a surface to surface nuclear capable missile system. I spent 12 years working on nuclear weapons, especially missile systems. I know for a fact that this is feasible. This would mean that Russia would have no nuclear deterrent against the United States. This would mean that they would be subservient to a power that could annihilate them even at the cost of roasting the planet or causing a nuclear winter.

I know people are concerned about climate change and LGBT issues and police brutality toward some people of African-American persuasion, and I know these a real problems that we have to address. But these problems pale in significance to this headlong rush to destroy the species that are military-industrial complex seems to be hell-bent on. I don't altogether believe that the military really wants to do something like this it's the people that run the government; the policymakers in Washington. These people who really run the show. This is insanity and I say that honestly.

Even if we could wipe out Russia's nuclear weapons that are in silos on the ground they still have submarines that are capable of launching nuclear weapons from the coast to California. It doesn't take a military genius to figure out that the use of nuclear weapons between two superpowers that have over 20,000 nuclear warheads each would mean the end of our planet.
