Just cause one team has a better batting average doesn't mean the whole game ain't a bunch of bullshit.

“The delta between Trump’s imagination of himself and the brand image that he desperately wants to sell is always wide; he’s the “billionaire” lout playing the Manhattan sophisticate who gorges on fast food. He’s a man with a lemur wig and a five-pound bolus of chin-wattle who think’s he’s irresistible to women. He’s the serially bankrupt master of the Art of the Deal. The TV talk show character who snuck into the Oval Office on a tide of Russian influence and now thinks he won on the merits.”

yeah, just because you are better at hiding secrets, and it seems many people who'd give up info disappear or commit suicide, does not mean you are clean.
If anyone thinks either side is anything but a "good cop/bad cop" show for the masses, then I envy your naivete.

Free Candy for US Senate Van!

Because older Jesus hooked up with teen Mary for that virgin birth.

Then there are the Donald and Ivanka growing up images, so it must be A-OK.

Because we need a Republican Senate to save us from immorality. QED.

The whole situation is pretty sickening, and now people are saying no to this, to continued #metoo, and more.

Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One that every time Putin sees him he says: “I didn’t do that.”

Says Trump: “And I believe, I really believe that when he tells me that he means it.”

Multiple U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that Moscow meddled in the 2016 election to try to help Trump win. Multiple investigations are also under way to determine whether Trump campaign officials colluded with them.

Trump dismissed the heads of those agencies as “political hacks.” He says there’s plenty of reason to be suspicious of their findings.

To be clear, my statement above was in reference the Democratic and Republican parties as political institutions. Both of them corrupt as shit and not representing the interests of people like you and me. A dog and pony show to keep us divided and fighting. Total good cop/bad cop bullshit. Remember how the 'good cops' treated that old Jewish dude that just wanted to help everyone?

Fundamentally our government is corrupt to its foundations.

I wasn't talking about the deranged citizens. That's another matter.

Diebold counts the votes with computers...

Computers are programmed...

Diebold is owned by the Red team...

The Red team let the Blue team win in 2008...

http://truedemocracyparty.net/voting-machines/

The Red team will decide in 4 to 8 years if its time for the Blue team to takeover.

But don't worry, non of our votes ever elected a President... that's what the Electoral College is for, we didn't get accepted. :(

But nevertheless people complain about rigged elections...

I agree that politicians practice "legal" corruption.

But I don't believe it is so FUBAR we should give up, or vote third party for to protest.

Here is another way to look at it. Most voters are not paying attention. Some presidential year elections get OK turnout, but we can do better. Of the voters who vote, many are poorly informed, informed by fake news sources, vote against their own best interests, vote single issue, or protest vote.

Congress persons collect money from corporate donors to craft legislation to benefit those donors. It makes sense for corps to spend 20K, 100, a million to get 100, a million or a billion in business benefits.

Then the congress persons spend that money to get more of their uninformed voters to vote for them. It costs money to pound voters with advertising, social media and in some cases it's amplified by trolls and bots. It also costs money to convince your opponent's supporters to not vote in disgust or to vote for a third party in protest.

So if you want to end corruption inform voters you know with true information, listen to their positions even if you disagree, get them informed, and then get them to actually vote for a candidate that can win. If you are a third party supporter, start with *winning* local office then build up a stable of candidates for higher and higher office.

Things are FUBAR of course, but with a slightly different view, each of us can change that rather than just giving up.

And Some seeing eye...

Voting, though it doesn't matter as far as actually changing the Purple team, shows "them" that some of us actually care...

Not voting is the worst decision of all... it says you don't care... so why the fuck should the powers that be change? Voting for the lesser of two evils is exactly what they want next to not voting at all.

Voting third party, or voting in patterns that don't fit into the left vs right scheme shows that some of us care and we see through the bullshit...

Then the Purple team will have to provide us a better and better quality of life rather than beating us into submission by taking the fruits of our prosperity away from us.

We own our lives. The Fauxlluminati ain't shit.

"WAR is a racket. It always has been.
It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.

...

I spent thirty-three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country's most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle-man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.

I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all the members of the military profession, I never had a thought of my own until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service.

I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.

During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket. Looking back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.

...

So...I say,
TO HELL WITH WAR!"

-On War, by U.S General Smedley Butler (1933)
