The Contrarian

“In the investment markets, what everyone knows is usually not worth knowing.”

The Election Process

Political parties, not voters, choose their presidential nominees. That is what a Republican Convention Rules member told CNBC, a day after GOP front-runner Donald Trump gained more primary victories.

“The media has created the perception that the voters choose the nomination. That’s the conflict here,” Curly Haugland, an unbound GOP delegate from North Dakota, told CNBC.

There you have it. It is all a circus designed to let people think they have a voice. Have you ever thought, out of 315 million people, the forerunners in the race for president are the best the country has? We, the people, get the choice between bad and worse. It’s like that in every election.

A poll shows that 66% of voters would not get themselves to vote for Trump, and 56% couldn’t get themselves to vote for Clinton. These are the leaders!

It’s obvious that the Democratic candidates were cleverly chosen by the puppet masters. The lady wasn’t supposed to have any competition.

The Marxist opposing her is surprisingly popular. He is proposing the largest tax increase ever. His promises of lots of “free” goodies appeals to the younger generation. This is the technology generation that loves “free”, such as free websites, blogs, free investment advice, etc.

The leading GOP candidate is outside of control of the “establishment” and many Americans who work and pay taxes love what he says although they may not like his style and insults.

Some of the candidates that dropped might have been better to fill that job. It’s a shame. They were not good at “marketing” themselves.

Historically such a trend towards extreme socialism eventually ends in DEPRESSION as all the “free” stuff can’t be paid for. And out of that comes a dictator, promising to fix everything. Sometimes he will form alliances with businesses, as did Mussolini. The super-elite will strive to control everything, along with the government. It’s called “fascism.”

We saw it in the 1930’s around the world. Hopefully it will not happen here. But “hope” is not a good tool in a war. Action is! But now we have over 50% of the population receiving money from the government instead of paying into it. These people will vote for the “Bernies” of the world who promise even more unaffordable “stuff.”

It will be a tough going for those who still believe in free markets, freedom, and the motto that hard work will be rewarded.
