For years we have been bombarded with these words in the political theater.
The media is this, and that.
Russians fixing elections etc.
Google involved in trying to alter elections etc.

First off, why should any of this matter?
What has happened to the human mind, that it can't make a decision on it's own, when it comes to voting for a particular candidate, or policy?
Why must we rely on others to think for us?
If you are interested in one candidate, or policy, what stops you from weighing out the qualities(good or bad) of that person, or program?

In the case of the upcoming election, why do you need the media, Russia, the center for justice, Google, etc, to guide you to your voting decision?
Are all of you incapable of actually making a decision on your own?
Why do you need anything/anyone else to persuade you how to vote?

It is high time we rely on ourselves, and grow some balls when it comes to deciding who, and what to vote for, instead of letting others do it for us.
Don't rely on polls, media trolls, political pundits to do your voting for you.
Make sensible decisions on everything that is important to you, before casting that vote.

I would go so far as to say do not stick with party affiliation, if the opposing side has what you feel is a better candidate, or programs.

Of late,social media is getting to the act,trying to "fix" elections.
How the hell does an election get fixed, if people use their own minds, and judgement when voting?
The only way(and an illegal one at that) would be for some organization to physically not allow me to vote at my voting location.
The rest of the garbage out their is just that, garbage,trying to garner your thinking, to their way of thinking.
I assume most of you have a working mind, and I suggest you us it, when it comes to candidates, and policies that you will be voting on.
