Result of Third-Party Lawsuit Could Decide Outcome of 2016 Election

Breitbart By Jason Scheurer March 7, 2016 A lawsuit filed on September 26, 2015 in Washington D.C. (and its eventual outcome) may turn out to be the most important event of the 2016 presidential election. Virtually ignored by all but a handful of alternative media outlets, this suit has the power to destroy the existing political power structure ─ much like the ridesharing firms, Uber and Lyft, threaten the antiquated taxi industry.

Voting for Either Business Party Does Not Work (Been there, done that)

Dissident Voice By Jack Balkwill December 22nd, 2015 Americans understand the elections are rigged. In the last national election, in 2014, just 36.4 percent of the voting-eligible population cast ballots. Of the 320 million Americans, about 80 million are under age to vote. of the remaining 240 million about 100 million do not participate in the elections.
