The 2020 Election Begins! Perpetual Campaigns are Destroying America
By Joe Jarvis - March 01, 2018

980 days before election day 2020, Trump announced his intention to run for re-election.

This is the perpetual election cycle that the United States lives in. And it is what Trump is good at. He is an entertainer. He is the perfect distraction. When the focus is on Trump, nothing substantial gets discussed.

It would be better to talk about what is getting planted in the garden, which cryptocurrencies have potential, or whatever interests you and matters in your life. But people talk about what Trump wants to talk about.

Scandals didn’t hurt Obama because the media didn’t report on them. But scandals run off Trump, like rain off a duck, even though the media constantly try to soak him. Most of these “scandals” have nothing behind them. In fact, the true scandals hardly even get discussed.

The public is so desensitized to Trump bashing that they don’t pay attention to which is which. Like a magician, Trump keeps the focus on what he wants you to see, and the slight of hand is missed.

Trump understands and exploits the media attention. He knows that most people are not really interested in government policy. They talk about elections and campaigns. They want the drama, the reality TV show coverage of the event. They treat elections like a sporting event.

And as a reality TV show star, Trump is right at home in the controversy of the campaign. He knows that it sells. He knows how to work the crowd. And he knows that keeping him on the minds of every American is his most sure-fire way of getting re-elected.


The constant election media coverage has a divisive effect on America. It pits one side against another and perpetuates an “us versus them” mentality. It is always about who is dominating who, and the contest to get back on top.

Somehow the media convinces the public that there are only two sides in such a diverse world. Every individual has their own interests, but somehow this is boiled down to Republican versus Democrat.

And then the two sides just happen to come together to approve massive military expenditures, and trillion dollar deficits. They even come together to renew secret FISA courts’ authority to spy on Americans, at the exact same time the party that controls both Houses of Congress releases a memo criticizing the court!

Meanwhile, the voters are left to quarrel amongst themselves. The more divisions among the populace the better. Politicians can exploit these for votes. They tailor their message depending on the specific demographic. It can be black versus white, rich versus poor, rural versus urban, man versus woman, straight versus gay, and so on.

But none of these divisions would stay on anyone’s mind without the government constantly inserting the inflammatory talking points. And they do this most effectively on the campaign trail. That is when the clashes between candidates occur, and the voters are expected to mirror these.

When normal people mingle, they end up finding common ground. They’re not so bad, they think, maybe our differences aren’t so important after all. But then politics enters the scene and hatred froths to the surface. Innocent people are accused of hate speech, racism, murdering children, hating the poor, hating immigrants and so on.

Part of the problem is that individuals should be able to go their separate ways, but we are all forced under the big 320 million person umbrella of the United States. Political fractures are good for society when one group can’t force their will on another. But people are in a struggle for power because if they don’t assert themselves, someone else will dominate them.

These sentiments are manufactured by the media and the perpetual political cycle. If no one had the power to ruin our lives with legislation, to steal from us or for us, then there would be no friction. Individuals would go their own ways, and interact when they wanted to. They could disassociate as they please, and team up when they want.

The political process smashes otherwise peaceful people into each other until something snaps.

Perpetual Campaigns

The media tells us that it is right to pay attention to political campaigns for the sake of democracy. We the voters are the gatekeepers of the government and have ultimate control over the country.

Of course, this is false. It is entirely out of an individual’s control to affect the outcome of an election. once you get down to the local level it matters a little bit more. But we are bombarded daily with national politics.

Congress used to meet for a couple months each year. The congressmen had real jobs and were only compensated for the time they spent away from their farms and businesses. They addressed problems–now they create them and exploit the call for a solution. They sit around thinking of what to spend our money on, how they can take more of it, and how to position themselves for re-election.

The President was never meant to be on the public’s mind 24/7. What he does really shouldn’t affect our lives. But it does affect our lives in a world of perpetual policymaking. It affects us as control centralizes in the hands of DC politicians instead of the states, and local governments, but most importantly, individuals.

My best suggestion is to argue with actions, not words. Live the life you deserve, the life that makes you a free individual. The government talks big and thumps its chest, but really they just make an example of a few people and the rest fall in line. Fly under the radar, refuse to engage with the divisive politics, and let people judge you by your actions and lifestyle.

You don’t have to play by the rules of the corrupt politicians, manipulative media, and brainwashed peers.

  • Perpetual Campaigns & Revolving Doors

    Whether in three years, eight, or twelve, it’s inevitable that the Democrats will again control the White House, Congress, and/or the Supreme Court. It’s just as inevitable that at some future point thereafter that all three branches will again return to the Republicans. And then, at some future point, it will all be reversed again, and again, and again, and again–that is, unless America repents of what it is that makes this an inevitability.

    This is the inherent volatile nature of government established without an unchanging ethical standard, found only in Yahweh’s immutable moral law. Case in point the United States Constitutional Republic.

    The following example illustrates the disparity between man’s ever-changing standard and Yahweh’s never-changing standard:

    “Two people could have walked down any U.S. street in 1930 – one with a bottle of whiskey under his arm and one with a bar of gold in his pocket, and the one with the whiskey would have been a criminal whereas the one with the bar of gold would have been considered a good law abiding citizen. If the same thing happened in any U.S. city in 1970, the one with the whiskey would be the law abiding citizen and the one with the gold bar would be the criminal.” (W.W. Turner, The Amazing Story of the British Sovereign (Nashville, TN: 1970) p. 4)

    In a mere forty-year period, man’s standard had completely reversed itself. The same transposition of ethics has occurred innumerable times under all governments based upon the traditions of man.Under a biblical government neither gold nor alcohol would ever be outlawed.

    This volatile propensity is especially evident in the Supreme Court:

    “…Constitutionalists believe the superiority of the United States juridical system is demonstrated in that even Supreme Court decisions can be overturned and made right by either future Supreme Court justices or by constitutional amendment. But history has proven the opposite is more likely. Furthermore, the injustices that often occur in the interim between a bad decision and a better decision would seldom, if ever, occur in a Biblical court.

    “Nothing demonstrates this fundamental defect better than Roe v. Wade, which constitutionally has provided for an endless number of infants to be murdered. While Christian Constitutionalists wait for the Constitutional Republic’s system to (they hope) correct itself, millions more infants are being murdered. Under Yahweh’s law, not one infant would have been murdered.

    Even when wrong decisions are overturned, they can be overturned again by a later court. Judicial records expose this capricious tendency of the United States juridical system….

    ‘The Court had reversed itself in 219 cases by 2000. Of this total, all but seven instances came after the Civil War. All but 28 came after 1913. Over 60 percent came after 1941. This process is accelerating.’29

    “Judicial “standards now change as rapidly as the Justices. This causes an uncertainty for society; and, in fact, often establishes a dubious standard which, in effect, is no standard at all.”30 Unlike the Bible, the Constitution is not an infallible standard. Returning to a more “pure” constitutionalism is not the answer. The answer is found in returning to Yahweh’s perfect law and altogether righteous judgments….”

    Politics is violence, hence we have perpetual political violence. We would be wise to give organizational government based on voluntary contracts a chance. Ya pay for what ya want and it is criminal to sanction anyone, politician, judge, enforcement officer, bureaucrat of any kind, to loot anyone and deliver the spoils to you. We would be wise to phase out all welfare statism such as SS, medicare, unemployment ins., and subsidies for all sorts of manufacturing or goods or services. Political government is immoral. The honest approach means that political government must be terminated.

    As I’ve said all along, the main importance of the Trump Presidency is if he can’t make the needed changes at the Federal government level then no one can. One may hate everything about him and his agenda but he clearly is trying to make changes. If he fails then he will effectively answer the question many “patirots”/Constituitonalists have been asking: Is this first American Republic over and must it now be overthrown physically? In my mind the jury is still out but considering how many forces and vested interests are against him I tend to think it is, but I absolutely hope not. The consequences of a failed Trump Presidency will be awful for virtually everyone. Historically it will be but a speed bump backwards to the way the world has been throughout recorded history. However, if this administration is able to make more inroads in the fundamental ways it has so far the improvements will be quite literally unbelievable to “we” who have been inured to the constant circling of the drain. The latest tax cut bill has been advertised as a deceit because it merely exchanges tax revenue from the populace with more government borrowing, and Trump’s belief that the additional economic growth will render that additional borrowing unnecessary has been rejected out of hand. However, no one really knows what will happen. No other administration (i.e., Clinton’s or Sanders) would have even tested that assertion. It may work better than Trump’s opponents say. We shall see. In any case, I ask you all to pray (and I’m not the conventionally religious type) that Trump’s agenda succeeds because if it doesn’t the world is going to absolutely suck. I understand and respect the concept of self-directed action and focus but realize that the only reason concepts like that need to be illuminated are because whatever “we’re” doing ain’t doin’ it, and that’s in a relatively still rational environment. I’d rather not have to test my wits and creativity against balls-out loonyville which will explode if Trump is toppled.

    • Trump is just an ignorant figurehead. Any independent prosecutor could do more to fix our problems, if one would. It is pretty simple. Charge the criminal, get an indictment from a grand jury or military tribunal, prosecute them, convict them, execute them, and repeat until all the other criminals have gone into hiding outside this country. Cancel their passports, without prejudice.

  • I must say I enjoy the mindless, feathered duck zombie Donald T threatening emperor Kim III of Korea (north) with extinction using nuclear WMDs by reading from a script. It convinces at least me it is just show biz.

    Republican or Democrat; the truth is the Hamiltonian-Federalists long ago won the age-old battle, which in the US began in the 1790s, however it is disguised.
    Anyway, as regards campaign and election cycles, two helpful suggestions:
    – Make the election campaign cycle a few weeks, as is the practice in many or most Parliamentary democracies.
    – Make the transition period following an election either the next day, or maybe the next week, so as little damage as possible can be done by the outgoing administration. In a parliamentary democracy, the transition often happens the next day – that is why ‘shadow’ cabinets exist whose members do not have to be interrogated endlessly by committees interested only in delaying and disparaging new cabinet ministers. Bureaucrats opposing political persuasion may be resentful, but they know that however many governments come and go they will persist, they are duty-bound to follow direction, albeit reluctantly, and skilful management can deliver the required results. Above all, there are those pensions to look forward to.
