The Lesser of Two Evils Paradigm

election-2016By Kurt Nimmo

Most Americans dislike both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

But due to the corporate media, the two-sided one political class party, and the marginalization of third party (actually second party) candidates, the lesser of two evils paradigm rules.

This has basically replaced the left-right paradigm. There is very little difference between Democrats and Republicans, even with Trump turning over the Republican party apple cart. Both favor endless war and the dominance of the corporate-bankster economic system, albeit with stylistic differences.

On the foreign policy front, Clinton is Obama on steroids. Trump has signaled he will “bomb the shit” out of designated bogeyman enemies. He has pledged to beef up the military and expand trillion dollar expenditures that will inevitably result in more war and intervention. Clinton will undoubtedly open new fronts in the Middle East and replace Obama’s ambivalence on Syria with direct intervention, much to the jubilation of the neocons.

Between now and November it will depend on who is hated and feared more, Trump or Clinton. That will be the determining factor of the election.

Congress will remain a gaggle of grocery clerks for the banks, corporations, and the military-industrial-surveillance complex.

If there is a constant it is that far too many Americans will continue to vote for “their representative” and complain about corporate lobbied grocery clerks in other gerrymandered districts.

  1. Voting does not matter, it’s just part of the NWO scam to make us think we count so we’ll remain compliant, subserviant and obedient while they lock us down and complete our enslavement.

    Don’t worry, everything’s at a safe level so you can go back to the NFL, cheap beer and Cheetos.

    It, quite honestly, will depend on whom the rigged voting machines annoint (Of course it will be) HillBillary and she will become terminal, thus allowing the current no-name potus and his artifical ‘family’ a 3rd term as the black nobility is firmly cemented into the Usrped Ztates of AmeriKaner.
    BTW: I’m one of the few that like the Donald and I have to question this lack of enthusiasm. We (me and mine) went to Wings over the Rockies (Trump rally) along with at least 6,000 others and this is typical of all of his rallies. I would say he is the most popular candidate of all time.

  3. Not to worry people, the courts or congress will decide who get the WH, our votes will not count. We have seen this is a dozen court rulings this passed 2 years

  4. The lesser of two evils is the inherent consequence of the 18th-century founding fathers usurping Yahweh’s exclusive election authority (Deuteronomy 17:15), turning it over to We the People, the majority of whom, according to Matthew 7:13-14, are in the broad way leading to destruction. Talk about a dumb idea! Just where do you think that’s going to take America? No wonder following every election America becomes more ungodly, less Christian, and further enslaved.

    Furthermore, when, in Article 6, the constitutional framers banned Christian tests they thereby eliminated mandatory biblical qualifications. In so doing, they doomed America to nothing but nincompoops, scoundrels, and outright criminals for fer “leaders.” Sound familiar?

    For more regarding Article 6’s Christian test ban, see online Chapter 9 “Article 6: The Supreme Law of the Land” of “Bible Law vs. the United States Constitution: The Christian Perspective.” Click on my picture, then our website. Go to our Online Books page, click on the top entry, and scroll down to Chapter 9.

    Then find out how much you REALLY know about the Constitution as compared to the Bible. Take our 10-question Constitution Survey in the right-hand sidebar and receive a complimentary copy of a book that EXAMINES the Constitution by the Bible.

  5. Revelation 17:17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

    No matter who wins, the people will lose one way or another.

  6. This time it’s different. That’s not what author and readers want to hear, but there is more to life than pet theories and ascribing hegemonic powers to paper tigers. Sure, they’ve got a lot of money and power but they’re obviously fighting amongst each other and can’t control the mess they’ve made, which opens a crack for the people to claim their countries back, which is what in fact we are seeing happen. Enough of the cynicism, and vote for Trump in November, part deux to BREXIT.

    I fear most a WW III than climate change due to the sun and the galactic influences (CO2 is a hoax and entertainment to leave the planet without reliable and cheap energy needed for development). At this time is more important stopping warmonger Clinton. Then we can deal wit Trump and Congress as we go in order to remove corporate control of our air, food and water..
