Watching the electoral cycle this year is like watching an old movie from a warped film reel with the sound out of sync. The puppet figures of politicians go through the meaningless gestures. The familiar slogans and catch phrases groan from twisted mouths, distorted and odd. A maniacal fervor pulses in the expressions of the assembled.

Reuters now tweaking the polls midstream , changing methodology because Clinton shows as being behind Trump.That is up until they make their adjustments.
Already the campaign is setting up a "Blame The Russians" meme for any anomalies that might show. Rather then shift to a paper ballot system which would be hard for a foreign power to compromise , the USA instead still allows many states to use machines that can be hacked to do the count. It an outcome not liked, blame the Russians because ONLY the Russians are "evil enough" to manipulate the results of the US election ! Right? Entities within the USA are just too "noble" to do these things.
Not only is reuters trying to get Hilary elected but Goggle apparently is manipulating search engines results to spin Ms Clinton in a more positive light.
This another article as to how fear works. People should be under no illusions that Ms Clinton cares about voters rights. Her party is manically trying to get several millions more registered knowing that if she champions their cause than claims that "trump will remove these rights and deport them" they are more likely to vote for her.
Just read a Guardian hit piece on Jill Stein about her views on vaccines. It's clearly to "inoculate" voters against voting for someone they might actually like and feel good about, rather than someone who they dislike and vote for only out of fear. And if Clinton loses, you can bet it'll be scapegoat time again.
We are cosmic powered biology surfing big bang at life speed. Cosmic powered biology manifest as human uses democracy as a tool to focus distributed intelligence. Totalitarian dictatorships and military empires always cut themselves off from distributed human intelligence and the result is always the same. Every police state military empire begins to believe its own propaganda and then becomes too stupid to exist.
We take appropriate steps and do not fear the rattle snake or become angry at its behavior. Nor need we fear catastrophic environmental collapse and loss of functioning government. Cosmic powered humanity has already invented autonomous democracy to focus distributed intelligence and decide what to do. Autonomous democracy tells the government what to do or makes one if need be. Fear fades along with the flush of surprise. Prudence and wisdom prepare our decision to act and survive during environmental and governmental collapse.
Autonomous democracy is real democracy. It is part of the information age — all the way to Einstein and quantum physics. We are still in the dawning of the age of Aquarius.
Of course her minions are out figuring the best way to rig the election so she can win. It's the only way she will win.
I couldn't agree more with this article. We will be inundated with fear tactics and paranoia from now till this illegal election is over. I for one will be glad when it is.
It was ugly with Bernie but she will pull out all the stops now to terrify the sheeple into voting for her.
With Trump's mane, I see a shirtless Putin riding on Trump's back.
Stronger Together? Hated the overt militaristic nationalism that was wildly cheered on the convention floor.
Excellent post. Thanks.
Thanks for putting forward an optimistic take.
"Fear is a tactic used by the despotic or the power-lusting to manipulate and control us."
Well then take the despotic and power-lusting greedheads out of the picture so they can't manipulate and control us.
Direct Democracy NOW!
Autonomous democracy, as in Direct Online Democracy, safe, secure, encrypted. See:

I see Clinton and Trump as best buddies.
Thus, the famous photos of the Clintons at Trump's wedding.
No surprise that Google spins Clinton more positive when you consider that Clinton is now making the quarterly trips to visit her bag men in Silicon Valley that Obama made for the past decade.
"The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain...
"...the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
"As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.
"And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock...
"Some of the connections between Uranium One and the Clinton Foundation were unearthed by Peter Schweizer, a former fellow at the right-leaning Hoover Institution and author of the forthcoming book 'Clinton Cash.'"
Instructors of motorcycle safety will mostly agree that the motorcycle will go to wherever the rider's attention is focused. What this means to a motorcyclist in the middle of a turn suddenly confronted with an armadillo in his or her lane is LOOK ELSEWHERE! Any focus upon the problem, rather than a solution, will result in months and months of physical therapy for the hapless rider. On the political road we currently travel, Donald Trump has suddenly appeared in our lane. LOOK ELSEWHERE! Any focus upon this armadildo, as is currently being done by the Media and all of the politicians, is a surefire way to put the country into a wreck. Put your attention, instead, upon a happier place, like maybe the jury room discussing election fraud crimes committed by the DNC against Bernie Sanders.
