Advertising, marketing and promotion.
Debates, post debate analysis and the polls.
Add in a timely breaking news story and they have an absolutely full proof system to show an election and to have every individual perceive an election, without an actual election ever taking place.
From the perspective of an unaware, self-aware individual the electoral process is the best we have to offer, but this perception is not a truthful representation of reality.
The best we have to offer is a proper accounting and appreciation for how the physical form works and the annihilation of the perception that we are not programmable.
Some would argue that they know they are programmable, but will still defend the process and deny the hijacking of our free will.
Based on my calculations and assessment of what we are and how we function; the closest we will ever get to a fair election, is to allow every candidate, which can obtain fifteen thousand legitimate signatures, the same exact amount of free air time to tell you about who they are and what they are going to do for us, then the media outlets get blacked out; no reporting, no commentary, no debates, no polls, no statements about who is ahead in the polls and no statements about who does not have a chance of winning.
Free will is not free, it is earned through an awareness of what we are and how we function, regardless of where we came from or how we came to be.
It is defended by the aware, self-aware individual form and given away, by the unaware, self-aware.
This unawareness allows for a theft which never gets reported, recorded or acknowledged and is the hidden gem of our creations and the front, which are the individuals we perceive to be in power, but I swear to you that they are not in power and the war is between our creator and our creations…
I swear to you, that we must pay a price for our free will or continue in perpetual slavery to the fiction in which we dwell.
