    What do people know is what they have learned? Starting at an early age we were told to go to school and the programming began. Even the Bible says bring your children. We are very accessible at an early age to be trained in a certain way and by the time were 7/8 years old we already have our own thoughts on things and our belief system has been formed. We have learned that what is taught in schools is the truth and doesn’t question or you will fail. Than we are taught if we want to learn what is going on around us we turn to the news media which is the next line of propaganda who sort through the news and selects what is good for big business and promotes it. The news media is owned by the big business so that would explain their bias. The medical system is bias toward drugs. FDA is bias against natural foods as they will go into a store with guns drawn walk passed the processed meats that have an additive that caused cancer by the GMO vegetables which are unsafe and arrest someone for selling whole milk.
    When people even on this forum disagree with me it makes me feel good because at least they are thinking and it allows be to check my beliefs. So many people do not want their believes challenged because they would be lost it would shake up their whole system so they fight it but don’t know why.

    I am with you on all of this @Martin Alonzo We have to research everything ourselves because those who we were "taught" to trust, are not trustworthy. Or they got so rich that people don't come first anymore, only money.

    Sadly the media played a big role in Trump losing...if he does. They never question anything Hillary says or does.

    But everything Trump says is blown out of proportion (I blame him partly for the way he talks) and is on the news all day after a debate.

    Right now all I'm reading is his reply to the question " will he concede" if he loses?

    His reply wasn't straightforward so now it's being read over and over and over

    Someone even mentioned he should drop out after this last statement of his.....what???

    It's all too bizarre and it shouldn't have been. Yes, the draw for his followers was that he was different and not a career politician but in my opinion he took that too far....not because of his answer yesterday but just in general looking over everything he's said and done.

    He knows the media, he's worked in it....even before he announced his candidacy he should have had someone go through his stuff with a fine tooth comb and do a preemptive strike regarding all of it....give the media nothing to dig up.

    Apologize for sexist behavior and move on and say he really isn't like that an he supports rights for women etc. and respects them.

    I could go on and on but I won't. I'm not attacking Trump but this is how I see it. I still have my fingers crossed that I'm wrong and we still have 18 days for some miracle turnaround to happen....and it could.

    I heard someone from ABC say that the media (he didn't clarify that it was going to be ABC or another news media) would be releasing an audio or video portraying Trump as a racist after the last debate. So far, they haven't done so. I wonder if this might be why they decided not to.

    What do you really want

    Trump: possible peace, revamping of the justice system, possible prosperity stop dangerous and undocumented immigration.

    Hillary: guaranteed war, keeping the justice system to justice for the average and just us for the elites, layoffs of worker continue, borderless country and ship in undocumented people.

    Why does the news media never report polls that have Trump ahead?

    They are really coming out of the woodwork. I do think it's overkill, and that fewer people are taking this stuff seriously.

    By the way, although two major polls have shown Trump ahead since the last debate, ABC News just this morning commented about Trump sinking in the polls, and referenced one that had come out before the last debate. Old polls are still news to them, but new polls are ignored unless they indicate the results they want to report.
