Bad Elections carry Dire Consequences:

For generations we were conditioned not to Read and Research so we became programmed for Gossip… As a result many like to hear about Obama in the Virgin Islands (UK) or Injustices done to me by the Courts in relation to my Properties and, while these may be important, they pale in comparison to crucial matters affecting all Humanity that must be addressed before it is too late and all is lost.
