    America's voter turnout has ranked the worst in the world for two generations and when a Republic's people no longer do their civic duty in electing qualified, intelligent, honest public servants then those people will no longer have a Republic.

    Yes voter turnout is not just disappointing, it's truly sad. I wonder if your vote is for the Green party, Libertarian party, Republican party, or Democratic party. Do tell and explain why. You're a long term member and I'm curious.

    I wonder what the reason is. But in FL the form is kind of large and you should be able to read "lawyer" language. People here rather spent hours standing in line for an football game or an Trump rally, but not in an voting line. I get mine by mail, it so easy. But yeah this country deserves the leaders they get because of not voting. I guess since last night, I get the feeling that the number of "deplorables" is much larger than I expected.

    But this is a covert totalitarian.

    The Election Has Already Been Decided

    BY DAMON GELLER

    People get very emotional about major elections, particularly when it comes to how elections impact their money. Yet the scary reality of our modern political system is, your vote doesn’t matter when it comes to who’s really in power. While there are many systemic problems in banking, taxation, trade and monetary policy, none of these systemic problems changes in any meaningfully way by who controls the House, Senate or Presidency.

    Regardless of changes in party power, politicians don’t hold the REAL power in Washington. No, the sad fact is, the election has already been decided. And the winner is the banking industry, at the command of the Fed. The Republicans & Democrats have done nothing in a generation to stop the Fed & banking industry from launching us off the fiscal cliff. And neither will Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.

    Katsung, yes I'm afraid that after the elections the chaos only will deepen, regardless of who wins. There are indeed so many issues which have to be resolved, let alone the middle east, the banking world, the corruption here as well an just tax system. Furthermore racism, police retraining, revamping our inner cities, clean air, water and infrastructure programs. Then of course we have our Obama care, which both parties want to revamp; which will cost again millions but looking at it, such will only make things worse unless you copy an European system, which has full control over doctors and the "pill" makers related to cost. It is laughable that an Mylan company gets away with what they do.

    I'm sorry to say, I'm not very confident that these subjects will be dealt with in an expedited manner, because there will be lots of sore feelings between both governing parties. I guess the obstructions and stupid evangelical agenda's will prevent that real needed things get done, in order to help this country move forward.

    I am so damn tired of wild conspiracy theories that aren't based on anything other than someones feelings.

    What chaos are you talking about? The world is at its most peaceful time in all of recorded human history. That is a fact. Not a feeling or belief, but an actual fact.

    There has always been wars and conflicts between Homo sapiens ever since we figured out how to kill each other and there will continue to be wars and conflicts between Homo sapiens moving forward, but it is imperative to put things in context when discussing it.

    No, it isn't.

    Seriously. Get off the conspiracy theory websites and find sources that actually deal with facts.

    I live in reality and understand the difference between fact and fiction. I also don't let my feelings control everything and am more than willing to listen to opinions from people who disagree with mine as long as they don't degrade me for having the audacity to disagree with them.

    You are not a prophet and the world is a hell of a lot more complicated than you make it out to be.

    Connie you made this post 5 days ago. 4 days ago I noted that you're a long term member and I asked who was getting your vote.

    Trouble putting it into words ?

    The truth is sometimes hard to deal with.

    No reply ? You must not be comfortable with your choice. Just don't elect a Robber Baron. Maybe you need to reexamine the choices. Good luck.
