WHEN WILL THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION BE OVER?

May 29th, 2016

There has been a lot of talk lately that Hillary already has the nomination for President of the United States of America; I question that?

It appears to me that the Democratic Convention is for the explicit purpose of determining who the candidate will be, and the Convention is official and primary elections are not.

Every Presidential election year, the highlight of the convention, is when the vote is taken by the delegates to determine the candidate and though some delegates are “pledged” they are not necessary bound by law to vote for a particular candidate.

In my study of American government, I have been appalled at what baloney that politicians have put into voters’ minds, regarding primary elections, to totally negate the original purpose of primary elections.

However, if I remember right, it is the votes of the delegates at the Presidential year political pary’s national convention that determines the candidate; and the candidate must have a majority. And in the past, if no candidate has a majority, a so called “Dark Horse” is sometimes named the candidate.

Realizing that Hillary has been the presumed 2016 Presidential candidate since 2008, when Democrat delegates chose President Obama instead, and the fact that Hillary has been leading in delegates chosen by voters today, but if a liberal progressive candidate became very popular, or another candidate had a much better chance of winning, and there was no candidate with a majority for whatever reason in the convention’s first ballot, the delegates could for some reason, pick a third unknown candidate (Dark Horse), like a Sen. Liz Warren, or Diane Feinstein, or Nancy Pelosi. The Democratic convention could get “messy”.

Personally, anything could happen at the convention or before the convention to change what appears to be the obvious. So I question anyone who says the candidate is chosen before the vote by delegates at the convention.

Call it a quirk of fate, a miracle, or a stroke of luck, but anything can happen between now and the Democratic Party Convention or before inauguration day in 2017; and then the Electors of the Presidential Electoral College will cast their vote and the final determination of who will be President will be official.

And I am amazed that the Clinton camp is asking Bernie Sanders to concede the nomination now and tell Americans that Hillary is a better choice than his self or anyone else in America to be President of the United States of America.

It is not a martyr that is born every day, it is a sucker that is born every day; so who do you trust?

HILLARY, TRUMP, AND WHO IS ON FIRST; AND, WHO WILL AMERICA INVADE NEXT?

May 29th, 2016

Today I’m reading about how I should save America from the Trump card, entitled “A plea to Hillary’s Democrat critics: don’t hand the White House to Trump”: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/may/28/plea-hilliary-clinton-democrat-critics-white-house-trump A plea to Hillary’s Democrat critics: don’t hand the White House to Trump

The problem with this article is right there in the title, ‘A plea to Hillary’s Democrat critics: don’t hand the White House to Trump’; there is no reason given for voting for Hillary instead of Trump, except the necessity to defeat Trump, which unfortunately is nonsense, because the only function of an elections is for one candidate to defeat the other candidate BASED ON MERIT!

HILLAREY BEST SHOUTING WITH FISTS

And that is the problem of the Democratic Party; they throw my liberal progressive candidates under the bus and then wonder why the liberal progressives don’t vote, vote for a third party liberal progressive candidate, or write in a liberal progressive candidate. Then, Democrat Party Establishment, Centrists, blame liberal progressives for losing elections like the Gore election in 2000 and Kerry in 2004.

TRUJMP WILD HAIR 2

The Democrat Party Establishment still hasn’t figured out that when their candidate is liberal progressive like Obama, they win the election.

Personally, I’m not a Party person; I would have voted for Obama if he had been Republican and had the same opponent. So don’t appeal to my party loyalty, both Party Establishments are corrupt as I see it; political party devotees believe all is fair in love and war.

And, the author Freedland says, “Hostility to Clinton on the Sanders side is so deep that they are in danger of letting the Republican win.” More important is why? We liberal progressives want no more wars of aggression by the United States of America; America’s wars of aggression for the benefit of Corporate America’s foreign investments and oil have led to 911, world terrorisms, and ISIS; liberal progressives including me, WANT NO MORE WAR!

Both Hillary and Trump are war hawks; Hillary voted with Republicans for W. Bush’s Iraq Invasion Resolution in 2002, and has recently said that if she is elected she will not take off the table, a U.S. attack on Iran in spite of the Iran Nuke Treaty. Very frankly, I have a lot of difficulty even thinking about giving my vote of confidence and conscience to Hillary!

This particular article by Freedland talks the same talk as Hillary and her moderate centrist DC Establishment supporters, who want people to vote for the lesser of two evils; voting for the lesser of two evils, is still voting for an evil to be our President.

Voting for the lesser of two evils is self-defeating, who wants to do that to their native land.

WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW, IS LOVE SWEET LOVE, UNFORTUNATELY, AMERICA IS THE ONE WHO IS DEPRIVING THE WORLD OF IT; GOD BLESS PRESIDENT OBAMA!

May 28th, 2016

Today I read of President Obama being in Hiroshima, meeting a survivor, Tsuoboi, of America’s nuclear attack on Hiroshima in WWII, an attack approved of by President Truman and for which and whom I heartedly approved of, at that time.

Tsuoboi, the victim of Hiroshima said of President Obama’s meeting with him, “He (President Obama) was holding my hands until the end,” Tsuboi said. “I was almost about to ask him to stop holding my hands, but he wouldn’t. I think he is such an earnest person, or has the heart to feel for others so strongly. As I was so delightedly talking to him, he was strengthening his hold on my hands more and more.” “Obama’s hug of Hiroshima survivor epitomizes historic visit”: http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/obamas-hug-of-hiroshima-survivor-epitomizes-historic-visit/ar-BBtymeV?ocid=spartandhp

And, I was personally, ever so proud of my President Obama, just as I was of my President Harry Truman, and both are heroes of mine; both Presidents were and are equally exponents of World Peace. May God bless President Harry Truman and President Barack Obama.

In today’s America of “hate and war of aggression”, I suffer a lot of depression and I feel a great need to do something, to bring Americans to their senses; I desperately feel an obligation as an “Old Phart”, who has lived in both the Presidency of Truman and Obama, to inform all those Americans who have yet to learn of the need to “love your enemies”, for your own peace of mind and you and your enemies’ happiness, contentment, and the benefit of world peace.

It grieves me to have to feel shame for my America, for America’s recent “wars of aggression”: Vietnam 1964-73, “Desert Storm” against Iraq in 1991, the “carpet bombing” and Invasion of the innocent Afghans and Afghanistan 2001-2014, whom had nothing to do with the 9/11 Saudi Arabian bin Laden’s terrorists attack, and the Invasion of Iraq 2003-2008 that was totally based on a lie perpetrated by the American President W. Bush.

These American wars of aggression make me feel like what I believe German, Italian, and Japanese People felt, after their nation was defeated in WWII.

In the aftermath of WWII, America showed great compassion for the People of our opponents, who were actually victims of the war, as we were; and, I take great pride in the Marshal Plan which compassionately provide our former European opponents with aid to recovery, and made them out best allies, today.

And further, I am proud of America’s occupation of Japan, and our aid to them, but most of all, I am so very proud of the American compassionate occupation of Japan that gave the Japanese People a voice in a democratic government of Japan and made them a valuable ally, today.

However, it grieves me to see America today, denouncing the innocent victims of America’s assault and aggression on Afghanistan and Iraq, denouncing their Muslim religion and culture, and America’s presumed candidates for the Presidency in 2016, spewing hatred for the muslim religion and culture and making threats of war on other Muslim nations.

It grieves me that America and Americans have shown no compassion whatsoever, for the victims of our aggression against Afghanistan and Iraq who had no part in the Saudi Arabian, bin Laden’s heinous attack on America in 2001.

Americans should to be taught in our schools at an early age, what America learned from the hatred and the sadism of Tojo, Hitler, and Mussolini in WWII; and, children should be taught how America and the world has benefited from American compassion shown our WWII enemies at war’s end.

The United States of America is deeply troubled today, in my estimation; personally I believe that what America need most today, is the compassion they have exhibited in the past and a serious and deliberate effort to establish world peace, and not war.

If America cut their defense budget in half, the world and world peace would benefit from it; and, the money saved could be used to meet the needs of the American People who have been deprived of their needs, by use of taxes and funding for wars of aggression instead of peace.

Unfortunately, I see hope for world peace, in neither of the presumed 2016 Presidential candidates, Donald Trump nor Hillary Clinton. Pity!

So again I would like to proudly thank President Obama for his acts of compassion as my President; God Bless you Mr. President! I will miss you.

And God bless my America of the past and, God help the ailing America of 2016; America is going to need a miracle today!

IN 2016, AMERICA IS HEADED FOR REVOLUTION, A 3 PARTY POLITICAL SYSTEM, AND A NEW LABOR PARTY TO REPRESENT WORKING MIDDLE CLASS AND POOR AMERICANS!

May 27th, 2016

America’s Democratic Party has apparently totally rejected the liberal progressive agenda in 2016, and the DNC and Party Establishment has rigged the party’s debates and primarys against the liberal progressive Bernie Sanders, calling him a socialist, not a Democrat, and not welcome as a “Democrat” candidate despite his apparent popularity; thus the Democratic Party who actually used to be the party of liberal progressives and FDR, is now the party of “moderate” Wall Street backed Hillary Clinton’s centrist Republican-Lites, who rigged the Democrat primary debates and elections to screw liberal progressives for the benefit of their Wall Street contributors. Pity!

And so it is that Liberal progressives and Labor are NO LONGER WELCOME IN EITHER THE DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN PARTY! The Liberal progressive working Middle Class and Poor are no longer served by the Democratic Party! We have reached the limits!

BERNIE PIC W STRIKERS.

And, if liberal progressives and Labor are to have any voice in American government, they are forced to and must create their own 3rd Party to represent America’s working Middle Class and Poor.

Debbie, the DNC, the Democratic Party centrist DC Establishment, and Hillary Clinton now dominate the Democratic Party and have devastated liberal progressives and Labor’s attempt to even influence the Democratic Party.

The Democratic Party has succumbed to Wall Street contributions, and is now the Party of the “moderate” Hillary Clinton, a war hawk who voted for W. Bush’s Iraq Invasion Resolution with Republicans and threatens to attack Iran in spite of the Obama International treaty to resolve nuclear issues, and is destined to make even more trade treaties like President Bill Clinton’s NAFTA, that cost and is still costing jobs of America’s working Middle Class and Poor.

It is extremely sad to see our American democratic Republic become a plutocratic oligarchy, of the one percent, and establish a Twenty-First Century feudal system of peasants and plutocratic lords, and eliminating the working Middle Class.

The only hope for America’s working Middle Class and Poor to survive is to follow their conscience and join in a revolution to eliminate Citizens United and form a party that supports the agenda of Organized Labor and working Americans, who are the majority. It is going to be “messy”.

The solution is not violent protests that will only get you shot by the Wall Street police; a general strike across America would be much safer and even more effective. All the money in American cannot produce a single thing, but the loss of workers in a general strike can shut down America!

A general strike is for the benefit of working Middle Class and Poor Americans; America’s wars of aggression have been for the benefit of Wall Street’s foreign investments.

This working American’s revolution is going to require the total solidarity of the working Middle Class and Poor; and, we will come together in solidarity and become the political party of the working Middle Class and Poor Americans.

HILLERYITES TAKE NOTE: BERNIE SAMDERS IS A DEDICATED LIBERAL PROGRESSIVE WITH NO INTENT OF BEING A PART OF A “MODERATE” REPUBLICAN LITE PRESIDENT HILLARY CLINTON ADMIONISTRATION!

May 24th, 2016

It is a fact that Bernie did not choose to run for the Presidency until no other liberal progressive in the Party challenged Hillary; Bernie would be out of his mind to even think of accepting a Vice Presidency to Hillary. A Vice Presidency is a road to oblivion.

As a liberal progressive, Bernie would be a traitor to the liberal progressive cause to be a part of the self-proclaimed “moderate”, centrist DC Establishment Republican-Lite President Hillary Clinton Administration. Bernie is a man of principles and not politics; why do you think he ran as an Independent candidate for his Senate seat, beating BOTH Republican and Democrat candidates.

BERNIE AND HILLARY COMPARED THE ONE DIFFERENCE

Bernie has an impeccable record as a liberal progressive revolutionary and that has been what Hillary attacked her entire campaign calling him a socialist and not a Democrat because he beat the Democrat and Republican candidates for his Senate seat.

Further, Hillary has a record of voting for W. Bush’s Iraq Invasion Resolution with other Republicans and was forced to admit she was lying about dodging sniper bullets in the Bosnia airport based on evidence; Hillary is a Trump-Lite.

IRAQ WAR CEMETARY

HILLARY BOSNEA WRITING SNIPER

Personally, I choose to maintain my self-respect as a liberal progressive and vote my conscience.

WHO WILL LOSE IN AMERICA’S 2016 ELECTION; IT IS OBVIOUSLY THE WORKING MIDDLE CLASS AND POOR, WHIO ARE THE VAST MAJORITY OF AMERICANS!

May 21st, 2016

Today I read, “DNC to offer Sanders a convention concession”: https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/dnc-to-offer-sanders-a-convention-concession/2016/05/19/99706b54-1df4-11e6-8c7b-6931e66333e7_story.html?

The DNC is a dollar short and an hour late in avoiding conflict with liberal progressive voters. They have already stolen the primary from liberal progressives and now want to get our vote in the general elections.

HILLARY CROWNED BY DEBBI WASSERMAN SCHULTZ

It is Just like 2000 and 2004; Democrat centrist DC Establishment deprived liberal progressives of a candidate and liberal progressives did not have a candidate to vote for in the Republican and Democratic Parties, that is why W. Bush won and Bernie won as an Independent beating both Parties; now the Democratic Party elitists have been shooting Bernie down.

The DNC said Bernie is not a Democrat and have deprived him of debates and voter information to try to stop him; in the process, the DNC has lost the liberal conservative vote, their base. In 2012, 2/3rds of voters did not vote. Now the DNC wants liberal progressives vote for the candidate with Wall Street support; let them have the Wall Street vote.

America could see a four party election in November, and Trump winning with the extremists 33% of the vote and and the other 3 parties getting 22% of the vote.

And it is ALL ABOUT MONEY AND CIRTIZENS UNITED; AMERICA IS NOT A DEMOCRACY NOW, IT IS A PLUTOCRATIC OLIGARCHY AS BERNIE HAS SAID! AMERICA HAS BEEN BOUGHT!

HOLY CRAP! NO ONE IN AMERICA LIKES THEIR NEXT PRESIDENT, NO MATTER WHO IT IS!

May 20th, 2016

Today I’m reading, “JUST IN: New Clinton Vs Trump Vs Sanders Poll Has The Establishment VERY Worried”: http://bipartisanreport.com/2016/05/19/just-in-new-clinton-vs-trump-vs-sanders-poll-has-the-establishment-very-worried/

So ladies and gentlemen, here is what is important about the 2016 election: “One of the big problems facing both Clinton and Trump is the simple fact that, for whatever reason, voters don’t seem to like either of them. According to the poll, only 35% of voters have a favorable view of Trump and a mere 36% of voters have a favorable view of Clinton.”

TRUJMP WILD HAIR 2

Of couse it is not “whatever reason”; personally I don’t like either one of the candidates for good reason, and my concept is that money decided the candidates in the primary, and not the trust and respect of the voters for the candidates.

HILLARY WINKING

It is certainly a sad day in America when almost 70% of the voters don’t like either candidate; so everyone bow down, put your head between your legs, and kiss your ass goodbye!

WOMEN, THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, THE UNFORTUNATE AVOIDANCE OF THE REAL ISSUES, AND TYPICAL PARTISAN POLITICAL SKULDRUDGERY IN AMERICA IDENTIFIED WITH CHOOSING A PRESIDENT TO LEAD THE AMERICAN PEOPLE; AND, REFERENCE TO A “MUST READ” ARTICLE ON SEXISM THAT IS NOT REALLY POLITICAL.

May 16th, 2016

Today I read, “Hillary Clinton: A woman and candidate with seriously complicated woman issues”: http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/hillary-clinton-a-woman-and-candidate-with-seriously-complicated-woman-issues/ar-BBsVh19?ocid=spartandhp

This is probably, despite the title, the most relevant article written about America’s 2016 Presidential election. It is not normal for me to recommend someone else’s article, instead of my opinionated blog posts, but this is what it is.

Author Janet Ross has done an excellent job of bringing two fair, intelligent, and honest women to comment on this exceedingly sexist election, Nadia E. Brown and Sarah Elise Wiliarty.

Every American voter should read it and, in reality very few will. Pity.

TRUMP PRESIDENTIAL 3

HILLARY PRESIDENTIAL 1

Personally I have been alarmed by the sexist character of this election, and I consider myself a lifelong male feminist, created by my very strong mother who I consider one of the greatest women God ever created, and no one really knows except me and my siblings, who are now deceased.

My mother taught me to greatly respect women as equals, with equal responsibility and Rights; and as a male of the species it has created a lot of problems for me in my professional and personal lives because I greatly respected my mother, her wisdom, and her knowledge of humanity.

I would encourage both male a female Americans read this article; I’ll make no effort to summarize it, and I will make no further comment. I am politically biased about the part sexism plays in this 2016 election of a new President, and will only say that I disagree with both Hillary and Trumps candidacy and “their sexism” as explained in this article.

And, as I said in the beginning, I am a male feminist, and lament the part sexism is playing in this election; to me a feminist life-long male like me, is a person who believes strongly in the equality of women and the responsibility of women, as it is related to men. Further, if it matters, I am heterosexual, not effeminate in character, and I hold the door for women.

And as I said previously, this article is not intended to be political. If it were, I would have written it differently, as you know. So, just read the article for your own benefit!

God bless women, God bless the women responsible for this article, and God bless America!

The only thing in the news that looked half-ass promising was this headline, “Julia Roberts Doesn’t Need Shoes On The Red Carpet. So There.”

So, I closed my computer and went back to bed; I’ll check news again tomorrow!

AMERICA’S ARCHAIC DEMOCRACY, SUPPRESSION OF VOTING, THE DEPLORABLE 2 PARTY SYSTEM THAT EMANATES FROM AMERICA’S ELECTORAL COLLEGE, AND REFUSAL TO MAKE CHANGES POSSIBLE BY NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR THE SAKE OF DEMOCRACY.

May 13th, 2016

Today I was reading, “President Obama: We Should Make Voting Day A National Holiday”: http://bipartisanreport.com/2016/05/12/president-obama-we-should-make-voting-day-a-national-holiday/?fb_action_ids=10208051061188744&fb_action_types=og.comments

PRESIDENT OBAMA

Voting should be accessible for all working Middle Class and Poor voters and the best voting day would be on Sunday, as it is in many other democratic nations; furthermore, it should be on two successive Sundays. Voting on Tuesdays and only one day is actually voter suppression of Working Middle Class and Poor voters, a majority of American voters.

If America really wanted to take advantage of today’s technology to be more democratic, the Federal Government would create an agency to handle all voting in America, independent of all other agencies similar to the judicial system.

With today’s technology, it would be possible for have a more direct democracy with all citizens voting for President and eliminating the presidential Electoral College; that would eliminate America’s ridiculous 2 party system that all Americans hate anyway, and lead to coalitions of multiple parties.

Furthermore, with modern technology, America could have the capacity to have national referendums on essential important issues, which would increase the power of the People and lessen the power of an obstinate Congress over the People’s will that America suffers today. The People could overrule an obstinate Congress.

THOMAS JEFFERSON

Our Constitutional forefathers would approve; that is why they provided for amendments to the Constitution to keep pace with improving technology. Today we are in the 21st Century and abiding by elections designed for a large nation of White supremacists, with the limited communications and travel that existed in 1787.

Other democratic nations have passed by America’s attempt to be democratic in 1787, and the American People are suffering from the American People failing to make the necessary changes to be more directly democratic.
