Gaslighting is making statements that are sensless and have no reference thereby causing doubt. You have expertise in this arena at that. Mr Trump also is an expert but more practiced.

My reference is the two corporate party thing that makes absolutely no sense to me. Probably due to ignorance?

‘It’s the servant who takes the money.’

A child can understand this.

One has to only look at how our politics are conducted and underwritten and whose interests are being served to understand we have two factions of one capitalist party.

You may prefer it to be that way but you have not offered any proof it is by legitimate design. It’s only your self serving opinion as far as I can tell without much evidence.

As your someone who can’t tell what is leftist politics from right wing politics, beyond your confessed elementary school education of it, it’s ironic that you find exception to the argument that there’s not much significant difference between the two corporate parties we have currently.

Since 1965

Republicans................Democrats
(28 years in power)........(25 years in power)
120 indictments............3 indictments
89 convictions...............1 conviction
34 prison sentences........1 prison sentence

Remind me again how both parties are basically the same?

They are primarily in service to corporate interests.

Does fanning people with political rap sheets win votes or mean anything to anyone?
The notorious Democratic crime bill jailed the poor, minorities and addicted in numbers to rival anything republicans could dream up. You think you’ve got something to say about the parties cleaned rap sheet to voters?
What, exactly?

Bankers responsible for record breaking white collar crime levels leading to the housing collapse and economic recession have an even better rap sheet PIA.
By your logic, should we be electing them?

Trick question! We more or less vote for the candidates they allow us to.

Get involved.
Support leftists for a desperately needed change in framing arguments and ideas.
Decolonize your mind. Stop consuming and repeating false media generated narratives.
There’s no more time left.

We’ve reached the point of socialism or barbarism and barbarism is clearly winning the race. The upcoming election may just be the last offramp to avoid where we’re heading. Neo-Liberals are the first obstacles to overcome.


Nothing I haven’t said before already.
