Way back in 2009, three years before the presidential election, I predicted that Mitt Romney would win the presidency in 2012. I was wrong of course, but what did happen was:

  • Mitt Romney ran for president, as I knew he would.
  • Mitt Romney garnered the most donor money by far, as I knew he would.
  • Mitt Romney won the Republican primary, as I knew he would, despite constant media speculation that others would win.
  • Mitt Romney did lose the presidential election, so I was wrong on that one, but he lost by a fraction of one percent in three states. He indeed lost, but by a hair’s breadth.

How could I have known at least the first three things way back in 2009 before they ever happened? Because I knew that America isn’t a democracy. The two presidential candidates are not chosen by voters, but by the elites. The politicians, media, and billionaires choose two guys, either of which they would happily take as president, both of whom they know will kneel and obey their will, then shove them in your face and tell you to pick one.

It looks like you get a choice, it feels like it’s up to you, but it isn’t. It’s up to them.

The above video explains how this has just happened with Jeb Bush. The media figured out that he has the most billionaire donor money behind him, so they have “chosen” him as the frontrunner.

Did YOU choose him as the frontrunner? Did any normal American voter choose this?

No. He was chosen for you, not by you.

I don’t know if it’s going to happen and I’m not making any predictions, but it’s very likely that the 2016 presidential election will be a Clinton against a Bush. Think about that for a minute. Does that sound like democracy to you?

It sounds more like a monarchy to me.

  1. So the elites have figured out a reliable way to transform money into votes. And then into laws that help them make more money. Is this how the political system works? The president is decided by the voters, but their vote is influenced too much by money.

    Yup.

    The president isn’t decided by the voters. The two candidates are determined by (mostly) the moneyed and the media, then the voters pick between the two. Sort of. Even during the presidential election money is a big factor. Something like 98% of all federal elections won in the United States are won by the candidate with the most money (i.e. wealthy donors and lobbyists) behind him or her.

    It’s a pretty ingenious system if you think about it. Everyone feels like they’re making a difference, but they aren’t. The elites do whatever they like and the people don’t ever revolt.

    Fred Reed once noted that the American and European elites have removed the results of elections from the actual formation of policy. It’s a pretty neat trick.
