FEATURE ARTICLES. THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION: HERE WE GO AGAIN. PT 1.







Barack Obama, Official Portrait

As the Latest Presidential Election Cycle Moves Forward in the U.S., LOGIC AND COMMON SENSE CONTINUE TO TAKE A BEATING. THE STRATEGY OF CERTAIN CANDIDATES TO EMBRACE THE LACK OF KNOWLEDGE AND SUBJECTIVITY THAT IS FOUND AMONG CERTAIN PARTS OF THE ELECTORATE, REGARDING:

-  THE ECONOMY 

-  DOMESTIC POLICY.

-  FOREIGN POLICY.

-  THE LEGAL SYSTEM.

-  THE U.S. CONSTITUTION.

...SEEMS TO BE THE GAME PLAN FOR VICTORY AT THE POLLS.

ALL THAT HAS BEEN ACHIEVED IN THE LAST TWO PRESIDENTIAL TERMS COULD BE LOST, IF THE MOTIVATION THAT SPURNED ON THE 2008 ELECTION RESULTS, WHICH USHERED IN HISTORIC CHANGES THAT ARE WITH US TODAY, IS NOT REALIZED IN THE VOTER TURNOUT FOR THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

THOSE WHO WISH TO SEE A CONTINUATION OF THIS SUCCESS, MUST BE REALISTIC, WELL- INFORMED, FAIR AND OPEN MINDED, AND OF COURSE, MOTIVATED.

WITH THIS IN MIND, UPCOMING POSTS UNDER THIS TITLE WILL LOOK AT THE STRATEGY AND TACTICS BEING USED TO INFLUENCE VOTERS AND DONORS TO SUPPORT ONE SIDE, OR THE OTHER.  THIS WILL INCLUDE:

-  GOALS PUT FORTH BY THE CANDIDATE IF ELECTED.

-  ANALYSIS OF ANY REPORTED DATA, REGARDING ITS TRUTH.

-  A CRITICAL LOOK AT THE ARGUMENTATION BEING USED.

-  THE ACCURACY OF POLITICAL ADS.

...AND MORE.

LOOK FOR PART 2.
