To those in the forum who have insisted on Jill Stein... seeing how Bernie Sanders is rendered invisible and given a FRACTION of the media time granted to Trump and even Clinton, do you now understand why a 3rd party contender has as much a chance of being seen, heard, and placed on ballots (that are counted!) as ice freezing in hell?
Imagine if Mr. Sanders got that air time! Had the chance to educate voters in North Carolina and Florida? VERY different vote counts would result!
Advertising works because particular word frames are repeated often. Is there anything good about cigarettes? In fact they KILL... but advertising makes them SEEM appealing, even sexy to some... thus lucrative worldwide sales. Same thing with soda: sugar added to water with a bit of flavoring turned into a multi-billion dollar empire.
So if unhealthy products like cigarettes and soda can be widely sold thanks to advertising's ability to "sex them up," it works the same way with candidates. The media, PR people, agents of propaganda, and other Information Specialists all know this. Hence the blackout on Sanders.
It is an attack on the nation, of course. As only a candidate deferential to the 1% will be allowed to sit on the American Throne.
Since everything is being done to render Sanders invisible and irrelevant, and Mrs. Clinton LIES continuously to sound progressive (thereby taking the wind out of Mr. Sanders' sails), in the event that she, Trump or Cruz obtain the Oval Office... I hope the fervor now being drummed to a fever pitch will not just go out.
"Do not go gently into that dark night... rage, rage against the dying of the light!" (I think this line comes from Dylan Thomas, but if not, please correct me.)
PLEASE check this out--it shows just how unfair the system is, as set up... and the speaker shows that Cruz got into office due to VERY few persons... hardly the majority that most citizens associate with any individual winning office:
