Bernie, as president, will do far more good for the American people than Hillary can. A Republican

president in 2016, of course, might spell the beginning of Fascism in our nation.

We must all have noticed that the Main Stream Media have been very quiet about
Bernie Sanders. They report little or nothing about what he says or does. They
try their best to avoid mentioning him altogether.

Why? I think they are AFRAID of having him as an opponent in the General Election.
And the best way of not having him as an opponent is to keep him in the dark as
much and as long as possible.

On the other hand, Hillary does get mentioned in the MSM -- often. Again, Why?
The Repubs. would much rather have her as an opponent. They think she will be
easy to beat. They have so much more negative things to say about her. Repubs.
think of her as easy pickings.

Let's help stop Fascism from taking over our Government.

Here's something that's more definitive about last Tuesday's Dem. Primary Debate:

Bernie won by large margins in all the online polls that were taken last Tuesday and Wednesday, and
Hillary won the debate in the opinions of most of the news media pundits.

The question is, which of the above two will count more in terms of votes, come Election Day in
November, 2016?

Swiss study shows that 147 large corporations (mainly banks) rule our world.

The Swiss Federal Institute (SFI) in Zurich released a study entitled “The Network of Global Corporate Control” that proves a small consortiums of corporations – mainly banks – run the world. A mere 147 corporations which form a “super entity” have control of 40% of the world’s wealth; which is the real economy. These mega-corporations are at the center of the global economy. Among them are: • Barclays • Goldman Sachs • JPMorgan Chase & Co • Vanguard Group • UBS • Deutsche Bank • Bank of New York Melon Corp • Morgan Stanley• Bank of America Corp • Société Générale.

----------------------------------

However as the connections to the controlling groups are networked throughout the world, they become the catalyst for global financial collapse. James Glattfelder, complex systems theorist at the SFI explains: “In effect, less than one per cent of the companies were able to control 40 per cent of the entire network.” Yet because of the facts presented in the study, the financial crash of 2008 can be traced back to these tightly-knit networks. Future disasters can also be projected based on this analysis because of the “connectedness” of these influential entities which are only 147 corporations.

------------------------------

As the banking cartels force countries in the EuroZone into sovereign debt, there is a weakening of the many multi-national corporations around the world. Wells Fargo and JPMorgan Chase have financially gained while stocks are being unloaded in other markets.............The European Central Bankers agreed to give any nation in the Euro-Zone a bailout if they agreed to hand over the country to them under the guise of “new rules and conditions when applying for assistance.” [Aren't they ambitious, though?]

-------------------------

As America drifts downstream toward economic implosion, the Federal Reserve headed by Ben Bernanke has chosen a different approach. They unveiled QE3 last week as a pump and dump scheme to prop up the US dollar by printing cash that is backed by nothing, while purchasing the mortgage-backed securities from the same banks that created the scandal and acquiring land in a massive land-grab; the likes of which have never been seen in the US. Simultaneously, the BRICs nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China) are buying gold to back their fiat currencies to avoid being caught up in the destruction of the technocrats as they march toward one world currency. BRICs have become the anti-thesis to the banking cartels of the Zionist regime..............................
Over 180 countries have signed onto the BRICs agreement as evidenced in their declaration. While the global Elite still hold power over the G5 countries, the rest of the world is standing up, severing their ties and making plans for a new world without them.

I must say that while there is quite a bit that I don't understand and leave it up to you economics people, the overall tone of
this article is frightfully depressing to me. Have we been really divided into two totally opposed and inimical camps? Where are we being led to by these screwball sociopaths? And, are they really unstoppable?

Do we have too many sadists among our nation's cops and prison guards?

From the large number of cases we've seen lately of cops badly beating up innocent
civilians for no apparent reason, it wouldn't be difficult to come to the question, "Are
Police Departments Hiring Too Many Sadistically Inclined Job Applicants to be Cops?"

Sadists enjoy causing pain and suffering to others. I can imagine the numbers of
them might be even higher among prison guards, where they can beat and humiliate
prisoners and not be found out for having done so. Prison guards can do it with
impunity.

Police Departments and Prisons ought to be provided by their superiors with the means to
screen out sadistically inclined job applicants, and fire those sadists already employed,
who are found performing such acts. Such primitive types should not be given authority
over people. They, themselves, need to bear watching!

Is there any way of starting such a movement -- and nationwide? Enough is enough.!

Nadin in Reply #5 just informed that taking pics. in voting booths is not allowed in some states.

It is unfortunate, but not hopeless even in these states, since this ruling may be challenged
(on 1st Amendment grounds).

As for the other states, how does one proceed with the matter if one suspects them of having
committed vote fraud? Do all those picture-takers band together and demand a recount
to see whether or not any of them have been "miscounted?" They have the evidence of how
they had voted with them.

The above also supposes that a group has already been formed functioning as a headquarters
where all parties interested in picture-taking have already registered and may be contacted to
show up with their pictures when needed.

I can see a good deal of preparation for unexpected eventualities is needed.

I wouldn't expect much in the way of change for the first two years, should Bernie

win the Presidency in Nov. 2016. Things might go as follows:

1. If Democrats should also win both Houses of Congress (and by a large
margin), great changes will take place. But winning both Houses is not
likely to happen.
2. If Dems. should win only the Senate, some change will take place, but
don't expect much and you won't be disappointed.
3. If Dems. should lose both Houses to the Repubs., little or no change
can take place.

In cases 2 and 3, the Dems., of course, will be working hard to make the
changes anyway. And each time the Repubs. slam down on what the
Dems. are trying to do, Bernie and the Dems. should tell the American
people loud, clear and often, what the Repubs. have done, how it would
make things more difficult for all the American people, and not to forget
what the Repubs. have done when the next Election Day comes. Dem.
leaders should repeat over and over again, and each time, how important
it is to vote during the non-presidential years, if Americans want to better
things for themselves. It is the Republicans who are preventing the Dems.
from making life better for all.

I've noticed in recent years that the Dem. leaders (with the exception of a
few like Eliz. Warren and others) don't bother to talk on this point much,
when it should be driven home loud and clear each time it happens. In
every negative there is usually some positive opportunity. Each time the
above happens, it is an opportunity to let the lazy voters know that the
Repubs. are the bad guys, and they must be voted out of office in the next
Election. And there is no other way for Dem. leaders to get things done --
their votes are needed. It is an absolute must.

Dem. leaders need to hammer this point home time and time and time again.
If they should do this steadily for two years, there is some chance that we
might have both Houses - and by good margins - beginning in Bernie's third
year. Only THEN will things start popping!

If the winning of both Houses should be by small margins only, remember
the 400+ filibusters of Obama's first term. Dems. should keep on hammering
away at the Repubs. for their recalcitrance, making sure that they get the full
blame. More of the general public will get to understand who the bad guys
really are. And Dems. will be able to accomplish more during Bernie's second
term. Some people are slow in catching on. That's the way things are.



Well, we've seen these nut-jobs last night. Yet they could win the 2016 Elections. How? Through

fraud. And they have an endless number of ways of practicing this fraud: gerrymandering;
preventing the poor, the elderly, the minorities ..... from voting; rigged electronic voting
machines, etc. ........ They are deliberately evil in almost everything they do!!

Will we do more to counteract the above crooked means this time around? I think 2016 is
the one election we can't afford to lose.

10 Positions that attract the most sociopaths: 1. CEO. 2. Lawyer. 3. salesperson. 4. Journalist

5. Surgeon. 6. Policeman. 7. Media. 8 Clergyman. 9. Chef. 10 . Civil servant.

Also, just Google "The world is ruled by sociopaths," and maybe you'll get the surprise
of your lives.

Just imagine, if Dems. should win the Presidency, Senate and House, with Sanders,

Warren and Grayson holding the top position in each branch respectively. This is
wishful thinking, of course, but if it should happen, I believe most of the national
problems plaguing us now would be solved within 8 years.

If a Third-Wayer should win in the Democratic Primaries in 2016, I'd be very

disappointed, but I'd still vote for her/him. The Reason?

We'd still have 4 to 8 years of status quo. It's shitty, I agree, but the Democratic
Party would, at least, still be partially alive -- and where there is life, there's hope.

On the other hand, if a Republican were to win the presidency in 2016, I believe
that this time, all semblance of democracy still existing in our nation could very
well become history. Quite possibly there would be no more free elections. Or if
there should be any elections, they would be of the type used by Stalin in the days
of the former USSR -- just for show only. The Republicans' present-day practice
of fraudulent elections will be nothing compared to what will be in store for us.

The Republicans did not make an all-out Putsch to take over full control of the
entire country during GW Bush's two terms in office. I believe that the main
reason was that they were not quite sure of success at that time -- and a failure
in something of this magnitude would have been an absolute disaster for them!

That was then. Today the story is different. The Republicans have been gaining
considerably in strength and power. They might no longer hesitate about making
their strike! If the Republicans should gain control of all three branches of
government in 2016, it could very well spell the end of democracy in our country
altogether.

This is the main reason why I would still vote for a Third-Wayer. Where there is
life, there is hope -- the hope that more Americans will finally learn that Third-
Wayers' political views and what they stand for are simply too inadequate and
incompetent to accomplish any real change. So, in the following election, there is
the hope that a Real Democrat will finally be elected.

To those who would not vote for a Third-Way winner under any circumstances,
please be reminded that a short-term reaction to disappointment is understandable,
but don't just stop there. Please take a good look at the possible long-term
consequences of your not voting. Whether or not democracy will continue to exist
in our nation at all could be dependent upon what you choose to do. It's an awfully
big and huge decision you will be making!!!

Good luck to us all.
