Dissecting U.S. Elections - the People vs. the Politicians / ElectionOracle / US Presidential Election

By: BATR

The establishment has an entrenched interest in convincing the public that their vote in elections actually decides who is selected for public office. That same power elite runs and controls both Republican and Democratic political parties. Only a neophyte or a delusional idealist believes that the voting cycle reflects the will of the people. When reform candidates engage in the primary process, hoping to win the nomination from either of the two major parties, they face the stark reality that playing ball with the money bundlers means obeying the directives of masters of the universe. These overlords own politicians, especially those who continue in office by winning predetermined elections.

Gary Johnson, The Best Presidential Candidate No One’s Heard Of / ElectionOracle / US Presidential Election

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGary Johnson is running for the Republican nomination for president. If you didn’t know that, you’re not alone. Precious few people do. He is the longest of long shots, with little money, a bare-bones grassroots organization and parsimonious media coverage, to say the least. He has had to fight through the indignity of being uninvited to most of the candidates’ debates. When polls are taken about voters’ choices, his name is often simply omitted from the list, lending him little chance to develop support momentum.

Is It Immoral to Vote for Obama? / ElectionOracle / US Presidential Election

By: Mike_Whitney

I don’t like mixing politics with morality, but sometimes it’s unavoidable. What I mean is this: how can anyone cast a ballot for a man who they know will continue to kill people in other countries merely to advance US policy objectives? That’s the question people need to ask themselves.

Corporate Donations and the 2012 U.S. Presidential Elections / ElectionOracle / US Presidential Election

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKevin Zeese writes: The 2012 presidential election promises to have the most anonymous campaign donations in U.S. history. Unless the Obama administration acts, unknown corporate and wealthy interests will fund massive advertising campaigns against and for candidates but the voters will not know who they are or their real agenda. The Obama administration can prevent this further corruption of U.S. democracy by taking two steps, neither of which requires action by Congress.

Voters Frustrated With U.S. Economy Turn to Republicans in Midterm Elections / ElectionOracle / US Presidential Election

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: Republicans predicted huge gains before today's (Tuesday) midterm elections, as voters fueled by frustration over the struggling U.S. economy are eager for change in Washington.

A poll in The Wall Street Journal asking voters which party they hoped would be in charge gave the GOP a six-point edge of 49% to 43%. About half of the Republican voters said frustration and protest over Democratic policies fueled their election decisions.

Preliminary results from the presidential vote show Ahmadinejad leading; Iranian Election Commission chief Kamran Danesho held a press conference at 11:45 p.m. local time and announced that with some 20 percent of the votes counted, the president was leading with 3,462,548 votes (69.04 percent), while his main challenger, Mousavi, had 1, 425,678 (28.42 percent). Sources tell STRATFOR that these preliminary numbers pertain to the votes from the smaller towns and villages, where the president has considerable influence, as he has distributed a lot of cash to the poor.

Presidential Election's Impact on the Financial Markets / ElectionOracle / US Presidential Election

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday let's talk about how elections are influenced by the market.  Did you know that in the last century not a single Presidential election has been won by the incumbent party when the market has been down?  That may be a very good reason why this rally has stronger legs than I had anticipated.  It appears that there is an effort to save the incumbent party from the ravages of the market.

Why Voting in the U.S. Election is a COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME... / ElectionOracle / US Presidential Election

By: Clive_Maund

The United States likes to portray itself as the bastion of freedom and champion of democracy, but if this were really true then there would be at least 6 or 8 different parties to choose from at election time, and given that it is now a country of over 300 million people a choice of at least 10 different parties would be more appropriate, but instead there are just two. Why is this? The reason comes down to the "concentration of power" issue that we addressed in an earlier article with respect to corporate America and the systematic disenfranchisement of its population.

Presidential Election Halloween Trick and Treats / ElectionOracle / US Presidential Election

By: Walter_Brasch

There are a lot of scary things in this world, but one of the scariest is that Halloween and the Presidential election are only five days apart. It's hard to miss the parallel between tricks-and-treats and the promises-and-panderings of politicians masquerading as the most caring, most vital, most sincere candidate. While standing behind their lapel flag buttons, they are quick to dress their opponents in something less patriotic.

Election 2008: A McCain Victory Impact on US Economy / ElectionOracle / US Presidential Election

By: Money_Morning

Martin Hutchinson writes: One thing is clear about John McCain's economic policies: They won't be a mere continuation of George W. Bush's policies. They can't afford to be. While Bush's tax cuts have been highly beneficial both to the stock market and to investors directly, the Bush Administration has taken what was a $150 billion federal budget surplus and transformed it into a $400-billion-plus deficit. That's at a time when stock markets and real estate markets have been ebullient, producing lots of bonuses and capital gains to tax.

Election 2008: Obama or McCain– US May Suffer Either Way / ElectionOracle / US Presidential Election

By: Martin_Hutchinson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs Barack Obama closes in on the Democratic presidential nomination, investors should focus their minds around one uncomfortable fact: Whether it's Obama or Republican John McCain who wins the White House, expect some policy changes that won't sit well with investors - or with the U.S. economy.

This could make for several rough years for U.S. investments, underscoring yet again the importance of searching out profit plays overseas.

US Presidential Election- John McCain Won't Be Looking for the Union Label / ElectionOracle / US Presidential Election

By: Walter_Brasch

Don't expect any labor union to endorse John McCain for president in the general election. The wounds from the Bush-Cheney Administration are just too deep. But, their reasons aren't because of social justice issues that once pervaded the labor movement, but on bread-and-butter issues that have dominated unions the past five decades.

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

Because he wants to salvage American democracy and help Americans, Ralph Nader is running for president again. He deserves the support of all Americans that see themselves as progressives, dissidents, independents, and patriots who want to remove the stranglehold of the two-party plutocracy on our political system.

US Presidential Election Candidates Spouting CHANGE But Stay the SAME / ElectionOracle / US Presidential Election

By: Walter_Brasch

All of the presidential candidates are spouting “CHANGE” as their “catch-word of the day.” Change the health care system. Change the economy. Change the corporate hold on middle-class Americans. The only thing they're not relying upon to get votes is spare change. A multi-million dollar campaign needs corporate investment—the kind the candidates say they oppose, but most are taking, nevertheless.

Missing are details about fixing the corrupt, dysfunctional political system and restoring balance among the three branches of government and between the states and the federal government.

The Zaniest U.S. Election Campaign of Modern Times - Inflation, Debt, and a Falling Dollar / ElectionOracle / US Presidential Election

By: Money_and_Markets

Almost every non-dollar asset in the world is surging: Gold has just gone through the roof. Other natural resources are following. And foreign stock markets are beating the S&P by up to 11-to-one.

Meanwhile, the dollar is falling, and nearly every dollar-based asset is underperforming or sinking.

Yet few American investors are doing much about it. With rare exceptions, they have ...

  • All their real estate in the United States ...
  • All their cash in U.S. banks or money markets, and ...
  • Nearly their entire stock portfolio in U.S. stocks.

Few have stopped to realize how severe — or how serious — the dollar decline has become.
