We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Abby Martin’s Empire Files Election Guide

Click here to access article from Media Roots.
If you’re in need of information to help make your decision for election day, or if you just need a detox from the corporate media circus, here is a list of all election coverage on The Empire Files.

Help combat the US Empire’s election propaganda with a dose of reality with Abby Martin.
 
This post is more of an antidote to voters who may be suffering depression over the whole election experience than an election guide. 

On this election day you might be thinking that it might make a difference in your life depending on who wins the formal Commander in Chief office of the US, but you would be very naive. In any case I think that the operatives of the deep state have already insured that Hillary will win (as I predicted in 2013) because Trump would pose too many problems for them. 

You see, our capitalist masters are very clever. I think that they allowed Trump to enter the election circus to frighten Americans into voting for Hillary, just like they arranged for Bernie Sanders to run in the primary election circus in order to lure in the always existing hopey-changey crowd to the Democratic party who could be used to support Hillary. Let's face it: we have been duped for many decades to support the rule of this tiny class who literally own and/or control the US, all of its institutions, and much of the world.
