Just cause it can be delayed does not mean it won't happen at all! Besides this quote should be quoted fully!

"Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered a speech on the campus of New York University. Dr. King's speech entitled, The Future of Integration," advocated for civil rights and nonviolent protest for social change." Where's the rest?

"Political candidates for high office are virtual illusions assembled out of media dust. They are solidified cartoons presented on television. The real lives of the people who are thus animated by media are of no concern. Indeed, it is the job of the candidates to conceal their real lives and thoughts and emotions, to avoid frightening the stunted children who vote for them on Election Day. Political leadership roles were never designed for authentic persons. Such persons, in significant numbers, would crash the system and expose it as a complete fraud. The art of building the political system depends on mass minds tuned to caricatures, minds that can't carry the freight of anything heavier. Therefore, society's architects set about their work: thinning out consciousness itself." (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

The national security complex became, in the Eisenhower years, a fast-growing apparatus to allow us to do in secret what we could not do in the open. This was not just an isolated phenomenon but part of something larger going on in Washington the transition from an isolationist America to imperial colossus. A true democracy had no need for a vast, secret security apparatus, but an imperial country did. . . . What was evolving was a closed state within an open state. David Halberstam, quoted in The Devil's Chessboard by David Talbot.

The FBI has now admitted that nearly every forensic examiner in a unit dedicated to microscopic hair analysis provided flawed testimony in hundreds of cases. And 95 percent of the time, they did so in a manner helpful to the prosecution. This isnt some minor technical detail without real-world consequences.- A. Barton Hinkle, "How the FBI Helped Prosecutors Railroad Criminal Defendants"


Perhaps a warning notice should be passed out to everyone before they enter a voting booth in the US:
WARNING: It has been shown that voting for any of the lunatics and psychopaths that are runnig for president only encourages them to order new atrocities around the globe that result in death, detsruction and cancer epidemics..-Robert Wenzel
