The general public is so concerned with their individual well being they are hypnotized by self preservation. A great many citizens are in a survival mode living day to day. They are vulnerable to what ever they are being told and not well informed enough to determine fact from fiction. I personally feel nothing will change much for the 1% regardless of the election results. A lot of people I talk to refuse to vote because they don't trust the process and feel they have been betrayed before. Of the ones who vote little will change. Honestly we in the US are at that point where the default button needs to be pushed. Everything is some whiz kids marketing scam. Every business deal is flush with victims,
and the economy has been in self destruct mode for over 30 years. I was hoping for a crash when I was a young man giving me a chance to recover. Unfortunately for me that didn't happen. I've lost my business, my livlihood, my retirement, my will to survive. I'm fed up with the entire system and I know many who feel the same. We have been scarificed for the sake of those who have been richly rewarded for national crimes against humanity. As far as I'm concerned every polotician is on the take or sold out to a corporations interest. Those who look at austerity as the answer need to take a good hard look at the cost of national defense, homeland security, and the likes.
