There are many sinister forces that are vying for power in our American society.
Most of these are associated with politically ambitious individuals who are far more concerned about power and prestige than they are about the people’s welfare.
Uninformed citizens tend to be trusting of some of these forces without doing due diligence in terms of studying their previous performance or their associations with dubious characters.
An uninformed voter, for instance, might ignore the fact that their favorite candidate had a long history of associating with radical elements, because the candidate proclaims his good intentions and promises them justice.
A well-informed voter who favored the same candidate might engage in further investigation on their own, discover that the candidate represented an organization found to be engaged in illegal practices, and change their vote as a result of the discovery.

Polls, Polls, Polls... It seems we are infatuated by the latest statistics and projections. The real issue here is the same one that has plagued the last two elections. Voters continue to not make an effort to be an "informed" voter. It is no surprise that in this day and age the media and which ever slant it chooses to present has an enormous impact with voters that failed to do some research on their own. It seems that the Kool-Aid is still the drink of choice regardless of a nation that is divided, apathetic, and sees our stature diminished on a daily basis. Keep in mind that for any positive this administration has accomplished; there is also a list of lies, failures, and many broken promises. To this day I will never be convinced that the good has outweighed the bad for the last 6 years. Our country is in trouble and if we continue on the same course it is not going to matter who controls what...
Ever thought about what the country would like like in a few years if Obamacare hadn't been passed? This is what the Congressional Budget Office's analysis shows: http://ofa.bo/qYG
The state of Georgia seems to have become callous and indifferent to the needs of its most vulnerable people. The poor, the seniors, and the sick must travel to a state office and pay for an ID card just to register to vote. The ill and the suffering will receive no relief from the expansion of Medicaid. People who feared they might lose their homes can't receive help in time to save themselves from foreclosure, even though millions of dollars were allocated by the federal government to the hardest hit states. And now the hungry, who are looking for Georgia to offer a safety net of support are victimized by poor management, even when federal money is available.
Sebekm, Ilove it.☺☺☺ You have PN stuttering .

"There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
― Booker T. Washington
TOT- yes, there will always be race hustlers but I also believe this quote is just as befitting.
For Blacks are not the only victims. How many white children have gone uneducated, how many white families have lived in stark poverty, how many white lives have been scarred by fear, because we have wasted our energy and our substance to maintain the barriers of hatred and terror? So I say to all of you here, and to all in the Nation tonight, that those who appeal to you to hold on to the past do so at the cost of denying you your future. This great, rich, restless country can offer opportunity and education and hope to all: black and white, North and South, sharecropper and city dweller. These are the enemies: poverty, ignorance, disease. They are the enemies and not our fellow man, not our neighbor. And these enemies too, poverty, disease and ignorance, we shall over, come

I had never heard the above quote from Ronald Kessler's book, Inside the White House before but my father had told me about LBJ's terrible mouth and frightful personality.
