Elections are meaningless power rituals that only pit personas against each other in an establishment-endorsed Two Minutes Hate. So if these political wrestlemania matches don’t change society, what does? Join us today for a fascinating conversation with Dan Sanchez about his recent article, “What If the Empire Held an Election and Nobody Came?

  1. Great interview!

    Dan’s statement about “policies over personas” was right on the mark and helped me understand the political campaigns in a way I had not really thought of before.

    I would really like to see people at rallies holding up signs about policies instead of the candidates. I wonder if they somehow exclude people who might do this? Say, organizations like Code Pink? They have done this at speeches like Cheney’s and been dragged out…

      Last sentence… Would be good.

      And if anyone does look at the link, just scroll down to see a quick .gif video image. Priceless

  2. If I understand Clint Richardson at Corporation Nation, the purpose of voting and that of Electing are two very separate things. The Electors actually officiate the choice of political party. Citizens vote. This vote is merely a legal Confirmation for the continuance of the current system in which we are enslaved, though, voluntarily.

  3. This is one of the worst video’s I have seen done from this site. I actually could only get half way through it.

    You realize that a vast number of elections, especially local elections have been settled by as few as a few thousand, to a few hundred and even in the single digits of votes. The whole basis of the interview on this one topic is laughable.

    The #StopTrumpMovement is not about the Trump persona. I have no clue on what planet that came from. It is to stop policies that Trump backs that the Republican Establishment does not.

    The anyone but Hillary campaign, that is about her persona… Are you kidding me. It is all about the dead bodies that Hillary has littered across the middle east and the opportunity she may get to cause even more death and mayhem.

    You have done some great work, this is not one of them.
