is this election staged russel brand thinks soIs everything we have seen until now staged? There is a chance that nothing could be real, especially when approaching the discussion of this years’ general election.

The Year of Sham Election- 2016

Unlike any other years, 2016 takes the cake. All events depicted by the media can not be better described by any other word than ridiculous. This is what became of the U.S elections.

Overall, the public is unaware of how easily they are being manipulated. Year after year we tend to vote for who we believe in.

But, seeing how all these possible candidates act, society may as well start believing that this is all a sham.

Maybe votes don’t matter after all when choosing our president.

They are expecting us to follow the rules, but at the same time, are they? The role of president gives supreme power to one person only, but how does it influence the entire society?

Throughout his campaign, Bernie Sanders did not fail to highlight an important issue that addresses all of us.

 “No matter who is elected to be president, that person will not be able to address the enormous problems facing the working families of our country. They will not be able to succeed because the power of corporate America, the power of Wall Street, the power of campaign donors is so great that no president alone can stand up to them. That is the truth. People may be uncomfortable about hearing it, but that is the reality.”

He said it’s not as much about the process of the election itself, as it is about creating a political movement that allows for change.

What is the government trying to accomplish? Should we not learn anything from the pieces of information that are now in the open?

Making Connections

There is a clear connection between all them. The government does have ties all around with the industries and corporations, which of course make it more powerful.

The 7th president of the U.S. John C. Calhoun has also tried to let the world know that there is a greater power in the government, one that goes beyond the power of the people.

He went on saying that it is composed of “many and various, and powerful interests, combined into one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in the banks”.

Theodore Roosevelt has debated the same issue himself:

Political parties exist to secure responsible government and to execute the will of the people.

From these great tasks both of the old parties have turned aside. Instead of instruments to promote the general welfare, they have become the tools of corrupt interests which use them impartially to serve their selfish purposes. Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government, owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.

To destroy this invisible government, to dissolve the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.

But now, as we see the giant masquerade that the 2016 election represents, what are we doing to stop it? Nothing. Everybody is watching and waiting, instead of taking actions against this corrupt system.

We have now enough proof to realize that it really is a corrupt system, and that it is not just a conspiracy theory.

Conclusion

All we need to do now is to realize that the governments are tricking us. As more people start becoming aware of this, the hope for a change starts rising. You want an example? Genetically Modified Foods and some pesticides used on them are now banned in many countries around the world.

We are slowly heading towards our freedom. Russel Brand has shared some of his opinions regarding the election.

The video below clearly shows what he had to say.

So, this cat and mouse game between the two candidates is yet another game they play. By now, all they managed to do was ridicule one another, thus also managing to  make a disgrace of this years’ election.
