First of all sir, bloody good to see you, and to hear that you are not in some dire circumstance, other of course than the aforementioned "2016 Presidential Clusterbang/Circlejerk/DeathracetothebottomohGodhelpus", and all that it entails.
I am not at all surprised by either your silence on the issue, or indeed by the contents of your eventual utterance on the matter. It is beyond belief that the situation in the States has become so utterly insane, that the two leading candidates are sociopathic, self interested fanatics, which both of them most assuredly are. I must confess, despite being a man of some significant reading, and no small amount of wit, I would be entirely flummoxed as to how to proceed with voting in that election, and I think myself fantastically lucky that I am not American at the moment, for that very reason.
Your analysis of the situation as it stands is entirely on point.
A time is fast approaching, where, owing to the incredible effectiveness of the propaganda involved in the political process at the moment, it will be more of a problem that the few have not accepted the programming, than that the program exists at all. At present, the problem is the propaganda, but eventually it will have consumed everyone to the point where it is those who have not succumbed, who will be considered not just atypical, but threats to national security, by all parties and political entities, no matter how outwardly reasonable. The nightmare fascist future that my grandfathers fought to prevent, will likely as not come about as a result of this election, no matter who wins it, and I believe that preparing ourselves for that would be wise, since the knock on effects of either potential presidency, and a subsequent continuance of the programming of the US population by those who own the country, is unlikely to halt this slide into the moral black hole.
You are not asleep. This is real life. I am so terribly sorry.

No sir, I am afraid you are dead wrong.
You posted a thread in which you stated that you were intent on leaving your country.
Your conclusions are different sir, indicative of entirely different thinking on the subject, and therefore my responses differ accordingly. Perhaps if you had read and correctly comprehended this threads OP, you would understand the distinction between the two.

I really appreciate what you stated: That TPTB are exposed and desperate. The reality is still in the shadows-how do we bring it out? That's my question-and my really only feeling of hope in this mess of an election. I truly don't know and 99% don't believe it is possible due to their power. I can always hope with my 1%.
Before you can form an opinion about whether this is actually possible you’ll need to understand what it is. Over-unity is most commonly used to describe a machine that is somehow able to output more energy than the amount of energy that is put into it.
