Forum Post: Left, Right, Middle. Who cares? This is a divisive tactic by The Powers That BE to provide distraction and promote disunity.

What we need to do is agree to disagree on our separate perspectives of what is the best way to go forward and unite on the fact that there is plenty of corruption and crime to clean-up. We can use our differing perspectives as to promote differing tactics. Each to their own, band together to attack corruption. Stop fighting with each-other and work towards a common goal. The Health and Prosperity of "ALL".

Remember united we stand divided we fall.

This is good advice... it is important that we as supporters of positive change are able to agree to unite... and work on common goals and issues that effect progress..

You're right, much of the disagreement and not looking past differences to the big picture, gets us off-track... and can even be used as a tactic to divide... is important to focus on common areas of concern and move forward...

Thank you for adding your voice to the cause of uniting.

We must not let ourselves be divided from joining in common cause.

Let us take back our government together and end corruption together.

We can continue to have free speech discussion and public input towards moving forward. Learning to work together despite differing opinions to make a better world can be taken straight into the halls of power as to how to get along to get things ( good things ) done.

Nice post, it reminds me of:

To help keep African Slaves under control, the slave owners use to give the light skinned Africans easier jobs to do. This made the dark skinned slaves mad at the light skinned slaves. As a result all the slaves were easier to control cause the were rivaling amongst themselves. Just like the LEFT,RIGHT MIDDLE DO? Don't know if it is by design but maybe?

The design is divide and control. Keep the people fighting with each-other and we can do what we want ( The Powers That Be ).

[-] -2 points by DKAtoday (23961) from Coon Rapids, MN 2 years ago

Different individuals with the same needs.

Health and prosperity.

Here's a couple of old divisive, election-time standards that are dragged out time and time again; abortion (right-to-life) and gay marriage.

Are people that thick that they don't recognise the ruse?

Every election, in every "democracy", these two (non)issues make an appearance.

Good Post

Thanks Nevada1.

We must be proactively UNITED.

To abstain from voting does nothing. Protest at voting sites the non-representation of the people, forward thought and consideration. Vote for the least objectionable, the least obvious corrupt/greedy choice. Continue to protest for change and the end of corruption. But to pull out of our legal process is to hand it over to those who are systematically plowing us under.

We may not have a real candidate in this election. But to abstain from the process does not help our cause. We need to get more people involved in the process of government not less. Get the major portion of the population active. Lead them to proactive involvement. Develop unity in addressing change and confronting corruption and manipulation. This is how we win. Not by walking away and saying unfair.

Now and between elections is when we should be most active in pushing for things that will return government to us.

1) Campaign Finance reform - get money out of politics.

2) Corporate person hood - fallacy and invitation to manipulate : END IT.

3) Conflict of interest in government - Ownership of stocks and property being affected by proposed legislation.

4) Ear marking funds for projects that affect - Ownership of stocks and property by members of government.

5) No line item veto to use to clean Bills that are passed - Not having veto power on singular items attached as riders on a bill allows corruption of a bill and an end run on the legal process to pass items that would not pass on their own merit and on things which the American voter would not support.

These are some of the Dogs in our fight.

Abstaining or opting out of the process does not help us.

Uniting in common cause does help us.

Get active be proactive. Recruit the general population to partake in the process in positive fashion.

Yes, always vote. So many in US do not bother to vote, while people in other countries are dying in the streets for the right to vote.

Have been contacting our representatives urging them to support HR 3806--One Subject At A Time Act.

Thanks. Good to hear from you.

You should expand on that HR 3806--One Subject At A Time Act. Perhaps post it on my "can your voice make a difference on-line post." and here also to help expand education and understanding. The more widely information is spread the more likely it will reach the eye's of understanding.

[-] 2 points by Nevada1 (4849) 2 years ago

HR3806---To end the practice of including more than one subject in a single bill by requiring that each bill enacted by congress be limited to only one subject, and for other purposes. Please contact your representatives and express support. See link below for more info.

Thanks for the explanation and the link to a fresh post to discuss it.

This is exactly the type of thing we need to pursue and push forward.
