Not "divinely chosen by providence", since most of them do not believe in God, and they look down on those of us who do.

Rather, they believe they are destined to lead the rest of us because they have evolved beyond us. It is evident in the impatience they show when they have to deal with the rest of us, their arrogance when they are questioned, and their "end justifies the means" approach to most everything in life but especially politically.

I disagree that impatient contempt is the best response though. These people are dangerous, and we need to stop them at any cost.

Brings to mind another old quote: "Some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them."-Unknown

Subconsciously, I think they know they mean genocide, regardless of what they decided to consciously believe. They do believe in the dark side of socialism. Why? It allows them to fully become the victims they perceive themselves to be and alternately it gives them a chance to either 1.) purge their guilt, something they have no real tools to deal with otherwise or 2.) make it to kingship without blood ties or anything else, other than a will to lead which creates followers who do bidding without question.

Then again, which candidates are not in this category? Some are more tied to it than the others, but as socialism widens the gap between the rich and the poor, it has forced actual conservativism (classic liberalism) out of politics while it closes the gap between socialist and communist in our "leadership". What is the difference between a six and an eight legged toad? They are both queer.

The DO however intentionally distort the truth, and some of their stupidity is clearly malicious - as in

Re: press wielding their influence to further an ideological agenda under the cover of "objective neutrality"

Once is happenstance.

Twice is coincidence.

Thrice is enemy action.

N to the Xth is why I don't even bother watching them anymore.

Yes, I believe that what you say is correct. They do twist, lie, and cheat, and on purpose. However, given what they are, they can do no less. In that sense, they do not know. Or, as Christ said, they know not what they do.


hehe, I try to avoid it, too. But my favorite reads are full of it. And, I guess I have decided to pull my head out of the sand just often enough to spit some of the sand out during this election cycle. I swear, I really consider the monastic life from time to time.
