I guess with the indictments now coming out that the Russians did, in fact, interfere with the 2016 elections, we can see now that many people were manipulated into believing that everyone else was against them.
I've asked many times why people do this, but I've come to the conclusion that most do it because of modern technology and it's ability to anonymously feed into their inherent biases and ideology. Remember what it was like just 20 years ago. If you are an average Republican, ( and I say that because not all will fit into what I am about to say ) you believe the hype about Big Government, baby killing, lazy blacks, gay abomination, women belonging in the home, guns are fun and our right, etc. You name it, you believe it! You have tunnel vision, in that you see a certain set of ideals and cannot deviate from them, for fear of seeming out of step with like believers. You wish to go back to earlier times, when whites were the majority, and you didn't have to listen to brown skinned people because you WERE the majority. Demographics have changed, but you are unwilling to change with them.
Democrats on the other hand like to think they are forward looking, taking care of others less fortunate. But they too give in to the money brokers, because that's the only way they can be reelected. Most of our Congresspeople spend a good part of their days hitting up donors for contributions for the next election cycle, selling out in the meantime!
There will be millions of dollars spent in the upcoming elections to maintain power in the house and senate, with the Koch Brothers alone pledging to spend $400,000,000 on the mid-terms. This country has been bought and sold by the wealthy and the multi-national corporations that can afford to spend what they want where they want and how they want. This is wrong, and it has basically killed fair representation by the general population. When we can't find a way to remove an illegitimate president from office before he destroys our country, with his complete and utter ignorance and hatred towards women and minorities. we are in deep trouble! And it's not going to stop until we stop it. When President Obama said before the election last year that this was the most important election in your life, he was right. Now look what we have become because you couldn't be bothered to cast a vote. You know who you are. We must overwhelm the polls this year like never before, and we must vote for persons who want the right changes to be made. Listen to what your candidates are saying and how they are saying it. Vet what you read or repost on FB and Twitter before you pass on false information. If their ads are nothing but negativity against others, ignore them, they're not worth your time. We need positive solutions to advance our society, not negativity to destroy it further. If we can't find a way to get along with one another, we don't deserve to be called the Greatest Nation On Earth. And at this point in time, we are not the greatest!
