Election Blues - The Hypnotic States of America

When I see election results, I realize that I'm not like everyone else. Not many people are interested in propaganda, handwriting analysis and body language, some of my favorite pass times that are not only lots of fun, but help me interpret my world.

"Why WILL you say that I am mad?"

I had an epiphany while attending a high school assembly that featured a professional hypnotist. It was entertaining watching the on stage volunteers do all kinds of zany things they would normally never do otherwise. At one point, the hypnotist mesmerized the entire audience... except me it turned out. I looked around as my friends, peers and teachers followed the hypnotists commands, doing whatever he told them to, then, after counting and snapping his finger, everyone returned to themselves.

OK, what does this all have to do with election results? I have to keep reminding myself that most people are walking around in a state of hypnotic suggestion. Why else would anyone vote for Santorum or Romney? Of course! They're just responding to their hypnotic commands, and in their suggestible state of mind, they never have to actually think about the awful effects of their choices that they think are their own.

When you hear Ron Paul for the first time it's like you're waking up from a dream.

Himpshaw - It's like waking up from a dream only to realize that you are living in a political and economic nightmare.
