Who Will Win? Who The Insiders Want. Its Rigged
All for naught.
It is disturbing to think that our election process, on which we invest so much attention, energy, and hope, is little more than an elaborate ruse. A ruse designed to pacify the population and cover for a ruling class that will get their way no matter what the general population wants. When we express frustration with the way things are going, we are constantly directed toward the current political process, and told to effect change through "the system". But what if the system is rigged? What if it is just designed as an illusion for the purpose of making people think they are self-ruled when they aren't?
Is that a conspiracy theory? Maybe, but human beings by their nature are conspiratorial. There would not be a law on the books against "conspiracy to commit X" if people never engaged in conspiracy. There would not even be a word for conspiracy if it never happened! At any rate, Ron Paul nailed it when asked if the move for a North American Union was a "conspiracy theory".
As Paul noted, a lot of these "conspiracies" are simply contests between ideologies, and some groups don't make any effort to get their ideologies known, they just launch projects that advance it, obstensibly for some other purpose.
My thesis here is that the nomination process for President is basically a rigged game. I will focus on the Republican process, but every sign I have is that the Democratic side is even worse. Even if every other type of human being was totally upfront about what their real goals were when they did things (in other words, never engaged in a mini-conspiracy) I assure you that most of the folks who run political parties are not that way. Of all flavors of human being, the ones who elbow and connive their way to the top of national, and often state and local, political parties are the ones most prone to be conspiratorial. They eat it up.
