According to several surveys, a majority of Americans don't like Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. I refuse to be drawn into the lesser of two evils scenario. If I were to vote for someone for president I think is a criminal, I would be giving my blessing to their criminal activity becoming an accomplice to their crimes. Yes, the US government borrowing fiat money from a private international banking cartel, which the Federal Reserve is, is unconstitutional and criminal. Yes, being the number one nation in weapons sales, number one in wars of aggression, number one in overthrowing elected governments, number one supplier of weapons to ISIS; all in an effort to corporatize the planet making a few greedy American war lords rich as oil sheikhs; is a crime of unconscionable proportion. All this while totally ignoring the fact that increased human population depletes and pollutes natural resources that our quality of lives, our very survival depends upon. War displaces far more people than it kills using more resources while lowering people's quality of life, resulting in those being attacked hating the aggressors. Statistics prove that when nations are relatively stable and human needs are met, people tend to have less children and population stabilizes or goes down a bit. As John Kennedy said, "Our problems are man-made — therefore, they can be solved by man...No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings.”, we need leaders dedicated to solving our problems rather than causing them. After they assassinated John F. Kennedy, the shadow government made the presidency into a military industrial corporate lap dog mouthpiece position; no president can change this nation into a constitutional democracy where government power is derived from a mandate of the majority; the system is antiquated, fatally flawed.

What can I do? When the morals of everyday average citizens are of a higher more humane fabric than that of those so called leaders, we need to organize and change our government. As much as I am against their system, thinking it criminal, I think we should begin by trying to work within the system. I thought of writing in 'Revolution” for president, or that is where my feelings about it all lead. Then I thought that even if the US Constitution is not perfect and the current government has made it void, I would prefer to live under a Constitutional Republic with a valid constitution rather than one ruled by a crime family. So in reading the Constitution, the best instrument to call for change from within is Article 5, which allows for the calling of a constitutional “Convention” in order to address problems of our nation and government; to make necessary changes to achieve the goals outlined in the Preamble of the said Constitution. Therefore on November 8, 2016 I am going to write in the words, “Constitutional Convention” on the ballot instead of voting for any person for President.

Does it matter what our Constitution says if we have betrayers in office in our government? : https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-switch/wp/2016/10/04/yahoo-scanned-all-of-its-users-incoming-emails-on-behalf-of-u-s-intelligence-officials

Integrity is easy even for children: Say what you do and do what you say. Then repeat it on and on.

Now I understand why we need to be "born again."

The deal costs too much, eh, hoser? One who wants legacy at any price contracts Aryan leprosy(Wrapped Around Your Finger) and will pay with an arm and a leg over time. It will be a legacy(or leprosy, they do rhyme) undeniably. Herr Drumpf is a rich man sleeping on a golden bed. He lived through the truth of this Aryan leprosy with Ivana.

The King of Pain said: "There's a blue whale trapped by the springtide's ebb." Here's a picture of an "elephant fish" skeleton (who's the skeleton choking on a crust of bread?) that had haunted my childhood mind on the day when I was sunstruck on a remote island and later stranded in the sea.

People blaming the poor situations in Libya and Syria on Hillary may be a bit off. The Europeans wanted American participation in deposing Gadhafi, in intelligence and communications, and coordinations. They would handle the post-conflict aftermath because Libya was in their backyard and they could surely use the oil and stop refugees flooding Europe by keeping them home comfortably in Libya. That was the plan.

It was not Hillary's fault that Libya got into turmoils. She could be blamed for not keeping her eyes on Libya or not pushing Obama hard enough for stabilization efforts by the U.S.

Syria was not in U.S. interest aside from humanitarian and democratic impulses. Syria was NOT sending refugees like Libya was starting to. If things were up to Hillary, there would have been much earlier U.S. intervention in Syria for sure, in the form of a northern no-fly zone but she was NOT in charge. Obama has been very timid so the mess belongs to him. Assad had breached several redlines drawn by Obama. There were NO repercussions so what could we really expect? Obama is a masochist and Poo Tin the Great and Assad are the 3€ assadists.

As far as refugees from Syria are concerned, Germany has done a great job taking care of them but I suppose that Germany did not quite have the long-term experience that the U.S. has in screening and taking in the wretched, broken-hearted, refuse of "your teeming shores." Biting off too much in a disorderly process is understandable as Germany is NOT an immigrant country like the U.S. which has been doing it for centuries. Germany exercised good leadership in the E.U. despite its having been a novice in handling immigration.

We need to know how to change tires while still rolling along and tackling our challenges: the condemned-by-the-Bible-to-Hell buzzcut, the peacock still fancying its lost tail, the dragon spitting out and swallowing its pearl while fancying of whipping up a tornado in the sea, the polar bear losing its ice floes and mauling trees here and there like a menopausal cat, and the circus magician's apprentice swallowing a sword and getting bled out by the Words of Allah.

Herr Drumpf has a very long history of talking about the problems that the U.S. faces as shown here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=OCabT_O0YSM

I think that he is genuine in what he says. It's very hard to look young again through makeups alone in a video.

He's not knowledgeable about thermonuclear weapons. Tritium has half-life of decades and anyone with some knowledge of physics can guess that these weapons after having been stored for a few decades are not reliable anymore. He complains about letting the Russians know about this but physics' law is apolitical and applies equally to ALL thermonuclear weapons, whether they be American, Russian, Chinese, North Korean, or not. Russia's are probably nearly as old as the American ones so they are just as unreliable. However, the U.S. has an active program modernizing its nuclear arsenal. Russia with its much smaller economy has no chance to keep the vast nuclear arsenal of the former Soviet Union up-to-date. It's likely that many duds would be fired by Russia in a global thermonuclear war. I much prefer that Gorbachev and Reagan had gone for the zero-nuke option. Both sides could have saved much of resources for other matters.

Russia needs to spend LOTS and LOTS of money fast to modernize its nuclear arsenal if it fancies ever wagging its peacock's tail again. Meanwhile, the dragon can take a bite out of the melting tundra for freshwater and arable land as global warming intensifies. Both the polar bear and the dragon had better start a crash program to develop antibuzz systems because there is now a new and naughty kid on their block playing with supernova-ember incendiaries, known to have already set off a few of them, while defying all the world's pressures not to do so. Soon, they will be able to fly far, very far, as ICBMs. Her kommt Vergeltungswaffe!
