Colorado’s process of electing GOP delegates drew condemnation from Republican front-runner Donald Trump and voters alike. But Trump is not the first politician to get shut-out of a rigged system.
“This is the way the system works, it’s a rotten system, and I see elections as so much of a charade. So much deceit goes on. . . . whether it’s a Republican or a Democrat president, the people who want to keep the status quo seems to have their finger in the pot and can control things. They just get so nervous so, if they have an independent thinker out there, whether it’s Sanders, or Trump, or Ron Paul, they’re going to be very desperate to try to change things. . . . More people are discovering that the system is all rigged, and that voting is just pacification for the voters and it really doesn’t count.”
Those are the words of Dr. Ron Paul, three-time presidential candidate and a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives who attracted significant attention while he was running, appealing to the intellect of the masses and helping to wake people up to the realities of the U.S. electoral system.

So called conspiracy theorists have been saying for years that U.S. presidential elections are rigged. Voting only provides the illusion that the American people have a say in what goes on in the country.

The majority of voters agree with Republican front-runner Donald Trump that the political system is ‘rigged’ and should be changed.
More than half of American voters believe that the system U.S. political parties use to pick their candidates for the White House is “rigged” and more than two-thirds want to see the process changed, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released Wednesday.
“The results echo complaints from Republican front-runner Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Sen. Bernard Sanders that the system is stacked against them in favor of candidates with close ties to their parties — a critique that has triggered a nationwide debate over whether the process is fair,” noted Reuters analyst Charles Mostoller.
The survey found that 51 percent of likely voters said they believed the primary system was “rigged” against some candidates. Another 71 percent would prefer to pick their party’s nominee with a direct vote, eliminating the use of delegates as intermediaries. (Source)advertisement - story continues below
At a campaign rally in Rome, NY, in April, Donald Trump blasted the RNC for allowing the nonsense in Colorado to go on- where Ted Cruz won all of the delegates in the State without any vote.
The most condemning proof that the system is rigged comes from Clinton “Clint” Curtis, an American attorney, computer programmer and ex-employee of NASA and ExxonMobil.
Curtis is notable chiefly for making a series of whistleblower allegations about his former employer and about former Republican Congressman Tom Feeney, including an allegation that in 2000, Feeney and Yang Enterprises requested Curtis’s assistance in a scheme to steal votes by inserting fraudulent code into touch screen voting systems.

Here is a very memorable quote from former New York City (1918-1925) Mayor John F. Hylan:
The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation . . . The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties . . . [and] control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country. They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government. It operates under cover of a self-created screen [and] seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.

Here is another great one from the 28th president of the United States, Woodrow Wilson, taken from his book The New Freedom:
Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United State, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.

As you can see, the idea that the system is corrupt and ruled by outside influence is not a new one, but thanks to Donald Trump the general population has begun to see it for themselves.
