Divided We Fail

The latest DNC debate just showed how selfish every candidate is really. The only one that stood his ground up against the onslaught of shmere tactics was Senator Sanders. The egos of everyone else portrayed them as very self-centered and intensely selfish individuals. It was quite obvious how they don’t value the people but themselves. While many are attacking Senator Sanders being a socialist we should remember that every country except some has capitalism integrated with socialism. This is something Bloomberg as well as the rest of those candidates on that stage can’t comprehend. When you are at your workplace that is capitalism when you retire and acquire Social Security that is certainly socialism.

It is extremely clear what these candidates are very about. And, that debate in South Carolina proved it. The antagonism, the out right animosity and hostility toward Senator Sanders again proved how they are very hostile and afraid when Senator Sanders gets elected they may loose status within the status-quo these days. As Senator Sanders reiterated the status-quo merely has benefited the highest 1%.

One cannot help remembering way back in 1996 if the Republican Party united behind a single person, Senator Bob Dole. There was really no infighting among other candidates. A unity of purpose prevailed from the Republican party then. Today, the DNC has allowed these candidates showcase which the party is not united. And, that debate highlighted the deep animosity and division within. Instead of pulling together according to Senator Sanders they’ve already splintered the Democratic Party to where it might be almost impossible to defeat Trump this November. And with Senator Warren as well as others vowing to remain the course to undermined the Democratic party and continuing to increase divide the deep divisions within again just shows they can be more interested in themselves in lieu of joining in unity to get the one candidate that may unify the world.

What the DNC is progressing just like they did 4 years ago in sabotaging Senator Sanders. They are purposely making certain that our elections are engineered to make certain more oligarchy rule with the super elite. If the public can’t realize what’s actually going on inside our elections we so cherish only then do we are doomed to suffer the outcomes of more corruption in your democratic process. When people become so complacent and familiar with a certain method of things especially our seniors they become very leery of anyone who efforts to bring changes with their lives. Essentially they may be afraid of change or any disruption to your status-quo. What they don’t get and might know about really don’t understand is any particular one changes become necessary at time to get progress, prosperity, security and stability in our everyday lives.

Need we remind everyone which the status-quo these days has only perpetuated the ruling class elite plus the rest of the 1%. If we can’t or won’t accept what’s actually happening in our political process today shows we’ve become too gullible from the continued allure of wealth and power. If we used your time to really educate ourselves we might actually know what Senator Sanders is wanting to do for each and every American. To paraphrase a Bob Dylan song and also a Bernie Sanders add “The times these are a changing.” Let us make these changes possible.

Mistakes Democrats

The history with the Democratic Party, especially, before few decades, is, they often times, exhibit, the power, to figuratively, shoot – themselves from the leg, with regard to positioning themselves, most effectively, towards winning elections. For example, twice, this century, Democrats, have, twice, despite winning the widely accepted vote, lost the Presidency, because from the Electoral College. In addition, they generally, use a primary season, brimming with their potential candidates, ripping, the other, apart, and, thus, harming the possibility, with their eventual nominee. With that in mind, this article attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, 5 mistakes, Democrats, have consistently made, during the past, and attempt to do so, regarding selecting their candidate, particularly for President on the United States.

1. Primary process: Frankly, stated, the principal, and caucus, process, used, is one with their worst enemies! When the first four places, are certainly not representative, on the nation, in its entirety, and, into two circumstances, are odd – looking, caucuses, the actual fact, the media, and voters, pay a great deal attention, to the telltale, often results in a candidate, poorly fitted to victory in November! Since, most admit, there are actually certain states, which might be considered Blue (Democrat – leading), and, others, Red (Republican – leading), shouldn’t this be regarded as, and weighed, in terms of finding the most effective nominee!

2. Pseudo – debates: As someone, who debated, during high school graduation, and college, precisely what is referred to as a debate, is, at best, a pseudo – debate, because, they, often, deteriorate, to scream – fests, and, catch – phrases, in addition to sound – bytes. After all, we should be electing an upcoming President, and, not the very best screamer, etc!

3. Over – analyzing: The media, and also other, so called, pundits, over – analyze, and hang up, simply too much analysis, into the things they conceive as significant, along with their personal biases! Both, President Trump, who lost (or most believe) every debate, he ever entered, together with others, including Ronald Reagan’s and Barack Obama;s first – debates, were definately not, great presentations. However, in our snap – to – judgement, we now have already witnessed, the slate running inside the primaries, narrowed from more than 20, to about 6, currently!

4. Empty promises: When candidates make empty promises, without explaining reality, ramifications, plus a cost/ benefit analysis, who benefits? While, by way of example, Medicare – For – All, may appear wonderful, the possible for enactment, currently, is practically, none, and, the whole costs, are actually presented with rose – colored, glasses, no-one benefits!

5. Infighting: Bickering, infighting, and blaming/ complaining, doesn’t achieve much, of the constructive nature, while, often, weakening the Democratic nominee, from the general election! Instead of unifying their party members, with the common good, it usually, ends – up, mainly because it did, in 2016, dividing, and conquering, and electing their political foes!

Factors Voters Should Ignore

If you’ve, sometime, and other, been confused, and/ or, felt you didn’t understand, why, and what countless voters, base their decisions, on, you might be certainly, not, alone! Sometimes, perhaps, more, seriously, than, in – jest, I have stated, Never under – estimate the stupidity, or gullibility, from the American voter, because, it appears, election – cycle, after election – cycle, they generally vote, to the candidate, who adds the most promises, and empty rhetoric, rather than one, who might give you a viable solution, instead! With that in mind, this document will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, 5 on the factors, voters could well be wise, to mostly, ignore.

1. Popularity/ personality/ likeability: While we need to like, those, we choose to office, would not it be better, to pay for far more focus on that, and realize, it’s a lot more relevant, to opt for individuals, who’re prepared, and enjoy the assets, etc, needed, to not only produce a change (or suggest changes), but alternatively, proceed, that has a combination of idealism, and pragmatism, to perceive and conceive of, create, develop, and implement the best possible, most viable solution, that’s the best chance, flying insects a difference, for that better! Instead of making decisions, dependant on their personality, and perceived popularity, we’d like elected officials, that are ready, willing and able to set citizens first, rather then their personal/ political agenda, and/ or, self – interest!

2. Empty promises: Candidates, usually, make many promises, but, generally, in the full details, of how it can be implemented, and, even, less often, the costs, risks, and potential ramifications (negative and positive) could possibly be! We must forecast these manipulations, and demand quality, informed, details!

3. Rhetoric: Ignore their rhetoric, because, too frequently, it can be truly, empty! When you hear someone, complain, and blame another individual, while never admitting, his personal mistakes/ errors, and/ or, responsibility, see your face is generally, not going, to accomplish it, mainly because it needs to be!

4. Spend, and spending promises: Tax the rich. A fairer system. It’s the fault from the 1%! All of these forms of statements, often, wind up, being, merely, excuses, for spending, and much more spending! How will or not it’s paid for, and, what are benefits, and risks, involved?

5. False perceptions/ rhetoric: Medicare for All, Repay All Student Loans, Free College For All, Lower your taxes. While the idealism, and positive messaging, for these particular, along with campaign promises, often attract voters, they rarely give you a viable solutions, for that greater good, or move, politicians, towards a significantly – needed, meeting – of – the – minds!

I’m fed up, and never going to get it anymore. These sentiments, with the key character, in, Network, go a sizable – way, towards, explaining, why a great number of, eventually, end – up, getting, burnt – out, concerning the endlessness with the political system!

To Know When It’s FAKE

Depending on, where one, primarily gets his information, it appears, exactly the same event, is related, considerably differently! In fact, generally, it won’t even appear, they may be discussing precisely the same matter! In some cases, the reason being, associated with an individual’s personal/ political agenda, and/ or, self – interest, while, sometimes, it’s just a matter of differing perceptions, of a similar issues! However, unfortunately, we quite often witness, an abuse on this process, when, lose your pounds . be little, to no attempt, at being fair, and/ or, impartial! Because on this. and the way many places, information, today, can be acquired, we’ve apparently reached a period of time, when some, believe these are entitled, not just to their own opinions, but his or her facts, also! With that in mind, this document will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, and review, utilizing the mnemonic approach, many ways, to differentiate between real facts, and FAKE news.

1. Future; face facts; fruition; furnish: President Donald Trump seems, to call anything, or anyone, who disagrees with him, fake! His spokespersons proclaim, these bankruptcies are not fake, but alternatives! Consider, whether, the ideas, depend on realistically, facing information, and, how varying actions, probably have ramifications, into your future! Will the process, furnish the best path, especially on the risk/ reward basis, and depending on scientific evidence, to furnish, the very best course of action. Mike Bloomberg often says, In God We Trust. Everyone else, bring data!

2. Attitude; aptitude; attention; articulate; actions; assumptions: Are these facts, or merely assumptions, based with a pre – conceived notion, prejudgment, and/ or bias, or some personal/ political agenda, and/ or, self – interest? Consider the individual’s attitude, and whether it be, positive, can – do, or negative, and worst – case, focused! Pay attention to whether, the politician features a relevant, well – developed, aptitude, and skill – set, and whether he articulates a note, packed with rhetoric and empty promises, or even a well – considered, strategic way of implementing the optimum action plan, and whether, he proceeds, proactively, or resorts to procrastination!

3. Knowledge; know: Does he, really, know very well what he is speaking about, where did he gain his knowledge, and/ or, is he simply reciting, the final, best idea, the most up-to-date one, he spoke to, told him?

4. Empathy; efforts; enrich; excellence; endurance: We need an innovator, while using commitment and endurance, to persist, particularly when an obstacle, gets in the way! Great leaders effectively listen, and learn, and proceed with genuine empathy, while keeping focused their efforts, on enriching our nation, citizens, and planet!

Everything, which someone statements to be, an undeniable fact, is actually a one! Stay away from FAKE facts, and thoroughly, determine, accuracy, and relevancy, of the suggestion, etc.

These Political Debates Tell Only Part Of The Story

For several months, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) has overseen, and conducted many debates, using the intention of letting people, and Democrats, familiarize yourself with potential candidates, and prepare a wiser, better – informed decision. However, for the multitude of reasons, these events have, in lots of way, was, more entertainment/ freak – show, etc, compared to a way to get an even better understanding, and also have real questions answered. Whether, the reason is that of the format, the moderators, and the desire to hog – camera – time, we need to, perhaps, reconsider, if there might be a superior way, for these particular individuals, to convey, an even more, thorough message. With that in mind, the following paragraphs will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, 5 reasons, we’re witnessing, what some reference, as being a train – wreck.

1. Sound – bytes as opposed to solutions: Haven’t we seen, enough, of specific elected officials, blame and complain, instead of introducing viable solutions? In about one minute, with interruptions, etc, just how do anyone explain things, thoroughly? In watching the Town Hall, format, it became obvious, when candidates are made time, as well as an opportunity, absolutely answer, your message, and communication, is, both better, plus more complete! During these debates, many from the participants, appear to, merely, try, to generate a catchy, sound – byte, which, they hope, people will remember! In addition, when accusations are manufactured, whether true, false, or somewhere, between, shouldn’t the accused person, develop the right absolutely respond?

2. Everything said isn’t true: Unfortunately, politicians often make statements, which, either, aren’t true, or are, partially, false! We often witness, more, perpetuation of misstatements, than anything, relevant, and/ or worthwhile!

3. Scream – fest, not debate: Many feel, these debates have deteriorated into, more, of an scream – fest, than a real debate, or relevant, factual discussion! Shouldn’t we determine, who may best serve and represent the most beneficial interests with the nation, and constituents, than, who are able to be rude enough, and loud enough, to communicate in – over their competition, and gain, more screen – time?

4. Avoiding answers, and moderators permit: When, candidates avoid giving answers, plus the moderators permit it, those damaging the rules, gain from this! In addition, by diverting attention, and avoiding, providing meaningful, relevant responses, this becomes, more, a physical exercise, than informative!

5. The format/ strategy/ objectivity: In one debate, the moderators permitted, the candidates to pile – on, against one candidate, several perceived to consider, a so called, threat! By letting some candidates give statements, or make accusations, but not permitting time, for your accused, to retort, it skews the style, and content, from the discussion!

Wake up, America, and, don’t fall – with the hype! We need, deserve, and must demand, a greater way, to find out, the others, with the story!
