The melodramatic U.S. election finally came to a “surprising” end. As a non-US citizen and an outsider of the election, I hope to share some of my observations about the candidates, the voters, and the U.S. government. I didn’t have any interest in politics before the election day, but I did some research after they got the result, and it was quite fun finding out some things about American politics.
Election as a football game
You would think that the U.S. people are rational thinking and socially responsible, and they will be careful about their choice of top government officials? The truth is that a lot of them are irrational and careless. They treat the election almost exactly like a football game. They just pick one side and stick to it, fight for it. They go all out for their candidate, ignoring the truth behind that person. They wear rosy glasses and refuse to look at the opposite, dark and hard evidence.
Working at a high-tech company, I have been shocked how those highly educated programmers look at politics. As top experts, their thinking is supposed to be logical and rational, but the fact is that many of them don’t have slightest idea what is right and what is wrong, what is a good society, what are the most important issues… Often they don’t even follow evidence and logic, or willfully ignoring them. This make them especially gullible and vulnerable to politician’s mental manipulations. You have to be especially careful when talking about the election, as careful as you talk about religions.
Most of the voters that I know don’t even look directly at their candidates. They don’t listen directly to what they say. They get information about the person from a “third-party”: the media, their friends and coworkers. When they hear other people say “This guy is a racist, sexist, bigot.” They take it for granted and start to hate that person. They don’t ask for evidence that can backup those claims. When their candidate lose, they go to violent protests, just because their friends told them to do so.
To make things even worse, when many people look at those wrongdoings and violent behavior of one side, they blame the other side, the victims of violence.
Brainwashing power of the media
Some of the voters do look at their candidates, but they don’t seek a complete picture. They only look at the scrambled pieces from the media (CNN, NBC, New York Times, Washington Post…). They don’t even look at the unabridged version of their speeches or debates, not to mention historical videos and evidence.
It is evident that most of the U.S. media distort information. They take half of the person’s sentence or 1/4 of it, and they tell you that this person is saying something really bad about a group of people (Muslims etc), and then you start to hate him. It’s just that easy to demonize a person.
But when you put those words into context, into a full speech, you found out that he didn’t really mean that. Those were perfectly valid arguments. It was the media’s intention to make you hate that person. Only when you directly look at the person’s speech or historical records, you found out what he is really like.
Suppression of criticism
In this election, I noticed this kind of logic in a lot of American people:
- If you dislike a particular woman, they say you hate all women, so you are a sexist.
- If you have valid concerns of high crime/terror rate in certain group of people, they say you despise that group of people, then you are a racist.
- If you don’t agree with them, then you are a bigot.
- If you criticize something, then you are having hateful speech.
This method was universally used in China’s Cultural Revolution (in the 1960s) in order to suppress free speech and criticism of the government. They call this “hatting” – they put tall hats on those who don’t agree with them, and they wrote words on the hats, for example “anti communist party”, “anti revolution”, “right wing” etc.
This is exactly what’s happening in the U.S. now, except that the words are “racist”, “sexist”, “bigot”, “hateful speech”, “anti-immigration” etc. You will be attacked immediately with those words if you express criticism, or if you support the candidate who expresses criticism.
Who are the real haters?
Interesting enough, I found that the people who accuse others of having “hateful speech” actually have more hatred inside their heart. There is a fundamental difference between criticism and hate.
If you call people with valid criticism “haters”, if you threaten to fire those who disagree with you, then you are the real hater yourself. By suppressing criticism, you are on the path of becoming a dictator.
Just try to find out who are actually intimidated of telling people which candidate they support? Those who are afraid of telling you their choice (or if they need a lot of courage to do so) are the ones that are discriminated and oppressed. Calling them “haters” and you are just hurting them even further.
Demonize a person
The U.S. people believe so much in the media, because they were taught at young age that this country has freedom of speech, and the media will always tell the truth. The fact is that the media often tell you only one side of the truth. Other times they distort or destroy the truth. After this election, I realized that most of the U.S. media are just propaganda machines. They are controlled by certain people. There is no real freedom of speech in the U.S.
Even worse, sometimes politicians hire people to make their opponents look ugly. After viewing these hidden cam evidence, you may have to rethink about the image of the person in your head. Are they real representation of the person, or are they just the image that his enemy wants you to see…
I didn’t know there can be fraud in U.S. election because they are so advanced in technology and laws, but these hidden cam videos show that it is not only possible, but rampant. Some vote sites don’t even ask for IDs. You can easily pretend to be anybody and use their ballots, for example Eminem’s ;)
So it’s actually really easy to hire people to commit voter fraud. You just move them from poll site to poll site…
How to spot a liar
Many people like a person because his positive image and positive words. But those can be faked. If a person always talk about positive words like “love”, “kindness” or “faith” but without substance, you must be alarmed, because those are important signals of hypocrisy. I have a lot of experience with hypocrites in my life, so I have an acute sense of this.
The best way to understand a person is to look at their unprepared response. You may find that some of them are having a hard time calculating what they need to say. This is a strong signal that they are pretending or lying. But some other people have very fast and fluent response. This is a signal that they are saying what they believe. They are honest.
The election law should require that all candidates be put onto polygraphs when they answer questions. It’s so easy, why don’t any country do that?
History is very important. Forgetting the history is equivalent to destroying the future. When you look at the history what those people have actually done, and how other people talked about them, you may be shocked.
A documentary about Hillary Clinton, so many things you don’t know about her.
Bill Clinton’s sexual assault victims talk about how Hillary treated them.
CIA 9-11 whistleblower Susan Lindauer: “A vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote for world war 3. It’s that serious!”
Systematic corruption of the U.S. Government
There is just too much evidence that the U.S. government has been very corrupted, at the highest level, and into each department. This is the case ever since the presidency of Bill Clinton, and that’s when the U.S. society started to go rapidly downhill. By doing some simple research, you may find out what kind of people are doing the dirty tricks.
It is already an open secret what’s going on. The once considered ideal system of balanced power to prevent corruption, hugely failed. It may be interesting to find out why this can happen.
Some investigation into the Clinton Foundation:

Root of all evil
This documentary of Bill Clinton tells you where all this evil begins…
This one looks like a complimentary of The Clinton Chronicles.
I have completely lost respect to the current U.S. government. It is controlled by criminals and liars. Obviously some people are above the law and are doing very evil things. You can see a pattern emerging since The Clinton Chronicles. Whatever happened to Arkansas, exactly the same things happen to the United States: crimes, drugs, bribery, liaisons, murders, lies, obstruction of justice, destroy of evidence, control of the media.
You can’t ignore this information when making such a big decision (election) about a country. Unfortunately I found very few people have looked into these videos before they vote.
