I smile, I'll be first here with the ole adage 'you can fool some of the people some of the times but, you can't fool all the people all the time.' Then there is the Hitlery add on to that: you don't need to fool them all - just kill the most threatening. Will it work this time? The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land, along with its 4th branch, the ecclesiastical propagation malefactors (media) have done an excellent job of convincing and confusing. On another note: if Hitlery wins, will Air Force one be renamed "con air"? Its all so confusing ;-)

Let's hope it doesn't work on Nov 8th. Hillary is a career criminal and must not be elected.

Laughing quietly, but not a laughing matter. Corrupt leadership worships something. For those alive, the walking dead, but for those dead and hid, God's wisdom is found. Long before there was ever a TV or Radio. Setting things in Order, rank and file, right to the plumb, judgement to the line, "line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little. This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not Hear." And Truman was a progressive socialist democrat duping a conservative socialist republican.

Americans are not quite as uninformed as the powers-that-should-not-be have hoped. I think the fix has been in for a while, but there are just too many eyes open to cover it up now. But who knows, I thought the 9/11 controlled demolition was obvious, but the media and gov still toe the party line. Bin Laden had been dead for years (as had been reported in Pakistan at the time) before SEAL Team 6; however, Osama's body was quickly buried at sea and Team 6 is dead. But the charade has continued. However, it is safe to say, Trump was not part of any of that. He was supposed to beat the Republican candidates so that Hillary could win hands down. Thank God for whistleblowers!! ;-) The question remains: can the rigged game be beat? If anyone can, a casino owner could. ;-)
