Trump & Clinton Are BOTH Absolutely Terrible

Here at Outsider Club we're political atheists.

We know that neither of America's two parties has your best interest in mind.

Our 'about section' begins:

Your life and finances have been hijacked. Sold to the highest bidder.

Your rights and ability to save and earn have been slowly eroded, picked apart by bankers, lobbyists, and politicians.

So here — a month before we elect one of two equal evils — I thought I'd take a moment to remind you just how bad the American system is failing under two-party rule, why you should be politically agnostic, and perhaps even rekindle the spirit of contrarianism and liberty.

Here's a thousand words about that:

The March of Tyranny

There's no better proof those legs of tyranny march in unison than the debate you saw on Monday night.

The entity that controls it is called the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD). The Establishment would have you think it's a nonpartisan entity.

Of course it's not.

It was designed explicitly by both the Republicans and Democrats to solidify their two-party rule. It was formed with clear intent to keep third parties out, which is why you don't see them on the stage this year despite the most third party fervor in 25 years.


Its origins are in the “Memorandum of Agreement on Presidential Candidate Joint Appearances” from 1985 signed by Frank J. Fahrenkopf Jr., then Chairman of the Republican National Committee, and Paul G. Kirk Jr., then Chairman of the Democratic National Committee. The two would go on to head the CPD.

But that original agreement didn’t even have the word “debates” in it. This commission is the mechanism by which the Democratic and Republican parties came together to push aside the League of Women Voters, which had organized presidential debates before 1988. It was to make sure that the campaigns, not some independent entity, would decide on moderators, on formats — and to critically exclude other participants unless both sides agreed.

It's like professional wrestling, where both guys are in on it. The moves are fake. The animosity staged.Republicans and Democrats

In reality, both parties are in cahoots.

In a recent USA Today poll, 76% of the public stated they wanted third party candidates Jill Stein and Gary Johnson in the debates this year.

Three quarters!

You think that venerable democratic institution of the Commission on Presidential Debates would yield to the will of the people?

Of course not.

That would get you informed. That would give you choice. That might show Clinton and Trump to be wearing no clothes.

We can't have that now, can we?

This year they went so far as not even caring about facts. When Janet Brown, the executive director of the Commission on Presidential Debates, was asked if the moderator should be fact-checking Trump and Clinton, she said:

I think, personally, if you are starting to get into the fact-check, I’m not sure what is the big fact and what is the little fact? And if you and I have different sources of information, does your source about the unemployment rate agree with my source?

They don't want you getting the real truths.

Think back to 2008 — how hopey and changey you felt about Obama.

Despite what he said about ending wars and healing the economy scant progress has been made.

In fact, we've fought and are fighting more wars now than before he took office. He launched a war to overthrow Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, destroying the last stronghold of peace in North Africa and allowing a flood of terrorists into Europe.

He launched another war to overthrow Syrian president Bashar al-Assad that has now caused the mass migration of 5 million people. Over 400,000 Syrians have been killed.

There are still 8,400 U.S. troops in Afghanistan conducting full combat.

There are now 6,000 U.S. troops fighting a new war in Iraq.

You can stand on that debate stage and say anything... and even get a Peace Prize for it.

But reality is reality unless, of course, you're living in Bizarro World.

If you thought Obama was going to be better than Bush you've gotten a strong wake-up call over the past eight years.

Obama has largely continued the policies of Bush. (I just cited the war examples, but there are countless more issues ranging from privacy/spying to militarized police and the economy.)

And that's because the parties are one-in-the-same.

If you vote for either of them you're as bad as they are.

Stay on the Outside.

Call it like you see it,
