The First Presidential Debate, September, 2016
A big yawn. As in past Presidential debates, the candidates stated they would (if elected) do this, that, & the other. There's little to no reason to believe anything other than this: when elected, one of them will do a couple of the things promised, but for the overwhelming majority of promises either nothing will be done, or the exact opposite will be done.
The primary difference between this debate & others was the constant interrupting of each other by the candidates.
American politics at the national level is a complete farce. Here's what's really going on---
"The powers of financial capitalism had another far reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements, arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the worlds' central banks which were themselves private corporations. The growth of financial capitalism made possible a centralization of world economic control and use of this power for the direct benefit of financiers and the indirect injury of all other economic groups."

Whoever wins in November, that person will serve the International Financial Coterie (Quigley's term). That means the rush to NeoFeudalism will continue.
Finally, unless a poll is conducted by Gallup, Harris, or Pew, it's doubtful that the results are representative. That's especially true if the poll is one of these "online" polls, where all the "true believers" (& few others) click on the candidate they worship. That's not even close to a scientific poll. The point is this: when the Corporate Media cite their online polls as proof that the current election is "neck & neck", it's really doubtful that is true.
Not only my opinion. Be Well
