They love it.

Don’t misunderstand me. They don’t care whether women do, or do not, have abortions. They don’t care whether abortion is legal or illegal.

What conspirators like is that the voters fight about it. The more the voters focus on matters that are of no interest to the conspirators, be it abortion, gay marriage, Obamacare, global warming, the right to bear arms, etc the less time they have to ask really hard questions about what is going on in America.

Here’s an example of what the conspirators do not what you thinking about:

From the Economist, 1 May 2015.

So we have ended up, after three decades of worshipping free markets, with a system in which the single most dominant players in setting asset prices are central banks and in which financiers are much bigger receivers of government largesse than any welfare cheat could dream about

(From the Economist, 1 May 2015, My underlining)

Here’s what the conspirators do want you focusing on:

Who’s a better Christian, Ted Cruz or Mike Huckabee? In a TV ad to run in Iowa Mr Huckabee’s supporters call Ted Cruz a phony Christian.

The Conspirators want you to focus issues such as these because they don’t care whether you choose Mike Huckabee or Ted Cruz. They don’t even care who gets to take the oath of office come 20 January 2017. All they care about is a president who will do nothing to undermine their power.  Neither Mr Huckabee nor Mr Cruz presents any danger to the Conspirators.

I am not telling you what to think. If your chosen candidate’s Christianity is your number one priority then Mr Huckabee’s ad may guide you.

Nor am I telling you how to vote.

I am advising you on how to think about your vote.

First decide what are your priorities. Try and be as specific as possible. If, for example, fighting abortion is your number one priority, put that at the top of your list. If a fairer economy is a higher priority that will be number one. Only you can decide what makes it onto your list and how you order them.

Take into account how achievable are your priorities. If you decide something is desirable but not achievable you may wish to downgrade it. There’s no good wishing for something you can’t have.

Be suspicious of politicians’ promises. My late mother used to say “politicians will promise you the moon”. That was then. Now they will promise you the Earth’s moon plus all the moons of Jupiter plus any moons found orbiting planets in other star systems.

If a politician makes a promise ask him how he plans to achieve it. Remember, a president – if you’re voting for president – is not an absolute dictator. If he promises to repeal Obamacare he needs Congress to do it. Ask him how plans to get Congressional cooperation and what he plans to put it in its place.

Let your personal priority list guide your candidate selection. It’s your priorities, not the candidate’s, that are important to you.

Remember, you do not need to like the president or your congressman any more than you have to like your plumber. The question is whether he’s the best person for the job as you define it.
