Selected, not elected

Politicians are walking billboards for giant corporations to dish out millions of dollars in campaign contributions. Donald Trump paid his way, spoke his peace and, unlike his opponent, couldn’t be bought.

This was clearly seen in the last election, which is ample evidence that elections in the United States are actually rigged — but for some reason he won.

The super delegate process completely undermines democracy. You could say Trump was the Rick Flair or Dale Earnhardt of the fight. He was hated, and yet, was elected our next president. He related to what the common people were thinking and wanted. This is why he was elected — the people are fed up.

We’ve had no representation from our corrupt politicians in decades. As a matter of fact, we not a democracy or republic, but rather an oligarchy where control of global resources lies within the hands of a small, but tight-knit group of rich individuals who control and dictate government policy.

Remember … “the rich ruleth over the poor” (Proverbs 22:7). It’s always been that way and always will. Money talks.

Mark Twain once said, “If voting made any difference, they wouldn’t let us do it.” And 29th President Theodore Roosevelt might have said it better: “Presidents are selected, not elected,” and that “behind that, is an invisible government that owes no allegiance or responsibility to ‘We the People.’”

Let’s face it, and I hope Trump doesn’t prove me wrong, but Democrats and Republicans alike are usually one and the same. They are two wings on the same bird, flying in the same direction … socialism.
