American politics, whose outcomes effect every damn bit of dirt on this rock, bring out the worst in people - all the bad traits like lying,
deception, subterfuge and generally acting like a sore-loser crybaby.
People are falling for the propaganda hard and fast - It's no coincidence that where humans congregate we see lots of hate for our fellow man over
thoughts we are encouraged to think. Look at YouTube, Facebook, twitter - arguably the most popular of the social network spectrum, just read a random
selection of comments on a random topic - we're royally screwed as a race if we don't get our collective sh!t together - and pronto.
I look at the politicians as the players rolled out for public consumption and to keep us focused in the wrong direction. There is no logic in pushing
a 2-party philosophy / mindset, unless you want to give the illusion of choice where everyone is pigeon-holed into black, white, religious, sexual
preference, social status, political ideals.
Irrespective of who wins this election one thing is certain - approx 50% of the population will be disappointed, which works well in a
divide-and-conquer sort of way.
Most humans have a base instinct of live and let live, don't harm anyone
, beyond that there is the human ego.
