Put That in Your Pipe and Smoke It

Social Media as Harbinger in the Presidential Race

There has been much said by political pundits and others on the current state of rigged polls, unfair and biased media reporting, and the potential for voter and election fraud, so when I came across this recent article posted on abovetopsecret.com that reported what social media data was showing in relation to the presidential campaigns, I thought it was worth reposting. Although the author doesn’t cite where the data came from, and he or she is clearly on the bandwagon for presidential hopeful Trump, I am of the opinion that amid all of the political chicanery and controlled media, social statistics may just give us a more accurate read on the political temperature of voters than polls.

According to these social media numbers, Trump is trouncing Hillary Clinton in likes and shares. The numbers may even be more in Trump’s favor in light of Twitter and Facebook’s continual censorship of posts or tweets not in line with their own political views. This election is a an epic one in deciding the future of America. At no other time has it been more clear that we are not voting for a president but for whether we will continue down the global path or remain a sovereign nation that votes for the interests and protection of its own people.  Not matter what you believe or who you intend to vote for, remember that it is your job as a citizen to be vigilant against fraud. This is not a left or right thing, it is an American thing.
