    “Election 2016: A Historic Opportunity To Reclaim Our Freedom

    If the most powerful global corporations get their way and money determines the outcome of the Republican and Democratic primaries, we are going to end up with a Bush vs. Clinton presidential “election.” While Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are surging in the early polls, the recording-breaking money in the Bush/Clinton war chest has barely been unleashed. Beyond the hundreds of millions of dollars yet to be spent by their campaigns, the unpledged RNC delegates and the DNC super-delegates, who control an astounding 20% of the overall vote, are heavily committed to Bush and Clinton, as are the mainstream media companies. As we get closer to primary voting season, a Clinton/Bush onslaught awaits.

    For those of you who support the handful of candidates in both parties who are genuinely calling out the entrenched special interests who dominate our political process and run the Clinton/Bush campaigns, by all means follow your passion and support those candidates. However, we need to be prepared to transition to a strong Independent presidential candidate if we end up with a Bush vs. Clinton outcome. We cannot wait until the primaries are over to organize on behalf of Independent candidates. By then, it will be much too late. We must begin the process now.

    If it comes down to Bush vs. Clinton, voting for “the lesser of two evils” will drive this election more so than any other election over the past generation. That is what makes the 2016 presidential election a strategically vital opportunity to rally around a candidate outside of the two-party system and significantly evolve our government.
