In the card game, Texas Hold’em, “all in” refers to betting the last of your chips/money. http://bit.ly/w5ukXM “All in” is most often invoked by a player who has been on a losing streak and has depleted most of their resources. When a good hand has finally been dealt and the odds indicate it is likely winner the player declares “All In” and bets all of their remaining chips.
This scenario seems to be an apt analogy for the situation we voters find ourselves in this 2012 election. But before I continue with that analogy, let’s talk a little bit about Donald Trump.

Recently I heard that Donald Trump was endorsing Mitt Romney. And I thought to myself, so what? Donald Trump is most likely going to endorse a candidate that embraces the concerns of millionaires and reality show executives. I am neither a millionaire nor a reality show executive. So, why do I care who Donald Trump endorses? Donald Trump, as far as I am concerned, you and your endorsement are fired!
But for some reason, the major media considers Donald Trump’s endorsement newsworthy. Perhaps the major media thinks this next presidential election should be like a Junior High Student Council election – A simple popularity contest with few consequences for choosing poorly? I don’t share that perspective.
And then I thought; perhaps the major media and the political parties have framed and confused the elections in such a way that the candidate a person should select to vote for is not obvious. Perhaps the average American is not aware that the propaganda techniques of Edward Bernays are being used upon them to subvert their individual will? (I often advise my fellow citizens that they can't protect themselves, their perspective of reality nor their family from our Government if they don't know about Edward Bernays http://bit.ly/nY9BjW)
Along those lines, my thoughts go to those frazzled rank and file Americans who are busy raising their families and earning money to pay taxes.
“It is also in the interests of a tyrant to keep his people poor, so that they may not be able to afford the cost of protecting themselves by arms and be so occupied with their daily tasks that they have no time for rebellion.”
Aristotle in Politics, J. Sinclair translation, pg. 226, 1962 http://bit.ly/pAI8O0
Further, I am concerned for the newest voters who may not know the “ins and outs” of “kicking the tires” on their first presidential election.
“Children should be educated and instructed in the principles of freedom.”
And I am also concerned for our more Seasoned Citizens that dutifully contributed to Social Security and other programs but were lied to by the politicians who frittered away the funds that were supposed to be in the lockbox.
“WE THE PEOPLE have an obligation to keep the promises that were made to previous generations…
…I personally believe if our fiscal problems can’t be solved without cutting benefits to those already retired and retiring within 10 years, all congresspersons who voted yes on budgets which included SS and Medicare taxes in the general fund should be charged with fraud and/or treason and forfeit all of their retirement benefits to fund the now unfunded Social Security and Medicare Liabilities.”
I feel a duty to sort out the deliberate confusion of this election for my fellow rank and file citizens who may be unaware, frazzled and worn out. I will start out by telling them that the endorsement of Mitt Romney by Donald Trump should mean nothing to them.
For you less seasoned citizens, may I first suggest....
