I don't know if the polls are "rigged" or not but I do know that a lot of folks are lying to the polls because of the media's bias. If someone were
looking at the telephone polls they would see that I'm a staunch supporter of Democrats. (Please, don't try to tell me that these polls are
anonymous, okay! If somebody can get the emails of the SOS, they can find out who answered polls and how they responded.) Yes, me, a normally honest
person, lies like a politician when the pollsters begin calling. To me it's all part of the fiction show.
I'm reminded of the most recent gubernatorial election in our Commonwealth. The polls showed the Dem running ahead by near double digits the entire
campaign. The Republican was an outsider like Trump, owing no political favors. The big dogs and old boys in the party didn't think much of him and
tried to knock him out in the primaries. All the polls came in showing him trailing badly, far more than the margin of error.
But wonder of wonders, on election night he took the vote. The big dogs and even most of the old boys rushed to embrace and congratulate him. The
Democrats gnashed their teeth, wailed and began filing lawsuits. In fulfilling some of his campaign promises to cut spending, he got smack-dab in
their faces and made cuts to education. Now he did this to try to help shore up the pension system for former employees of the Teachers Retirement
System---but since the Democrats don't give a flip about fiscal responsibility with pensions, they began filing lawsuits. So when he should be
governing, he's having to talk to lawyers about defending his actions as legally elected governor. And we, the Commonwealth taxpayers are paying for
this whole pitiful dog and pony show.
I fear that we the taxpayers of the US will see much the same if Trump is elected. No matter which major party gets the White House, we the taxpayers
are going to have lighter pockets.
The only glimmer of hope I've had lately was the acquittal of the Oregon protestors. That jury showed me that given a jury of our peers, at least a
semblance of justice can prevail. I believe that had the government won that trial, we'd have seen herds of msm journalists there covering the
conviction and gleefully spouting government propaganda. They would have taken time off from the election coverage to flash pictures of the
"violent, anti-government, rabble rousers" being marched away for the rest of their lives.
My choice for president isn't going to wake up and find himself the winner on Wednesday morning. Gary Johnson is the best choice in my mind because
he's a man of integrity and demonstrated abilities at leadership under adverse conditions. He has no political or personal baggage that would cause
the FBI to spend our money to investigate him. So far as I can find out, he's got no civil lawsuits awaiting his attention. He's the logical choice
when faced with two totally unacceptable candidates. The worst video to be dragged up on him is of him acting silly, displaying an actual sense of
Sadly, he's not on your map. So we're just pretty much up that all-too-familiar creek, having had our paddle taken away by someone who feared we
might use it as a weapon.
