  1. Yes, these days as a voter, I feel much like that poor sheep must feel…

    • Exactly right. We have a choice though. It may not save us, but it’s an opportunity to be non-compliant. Vote 3rd party. Send a message to the elites who think they’re running the show that we’re not playing their game by their rules anymore, that we’re smarter than they think we are.

      • I definitely hear ya, but I have decided to weigh in against Trump, which seems to mean voting Clinton. Truly the lesser of two evils. *sigh*

      • I agree that Trump is the lesser of TWO evils, but I can’t bring myself to vote for him. If voting for Gary Johnson means Clinton wins (which I’m not sure that it favors her more than it favors him), then so be it. The country’s headed for a cliff either way and when we hit bottom, I think the people like me who have said that profligate government spending and taking people’s liberties away are not the answers to what ails us will be proven correct. Hopefully what follows resembles something more America 1789 than France 1789.

      • Haha well my view is that Clinton is the lesser evil. We’ll just have to agree to disagree there I suppose. But I’m 100% with you on the idea that protecting our liberties is crucial.

      • I don’t see either one of them protecting any liberties. Dictators never protect liberties and they’re both dictators in waiting. But we’ll see. One or the other will probably be president, although I sincerely hope the people will surprise them both and elect an outlier. The elites they both represent royally deserve that.
