The US is currently in disarray over our current President and it’s understandable. Former US First Lady and Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, was a shoe-in for the presidential spot, or at least that’s what the media wanted the world to know, but they were wrong. Just like they’ve been wrong about UFO sightings being reported occurring across the US, their Achilles heel was and still is, not tuning into Rural America. Completely oblivious to farmers, ranchers, and small city life, the media was focusing more on Urban culture, rather than Rural, when they were polling.
Urban Culture compared to Rural Culture also effects how the types of UFOs are reported.
Urban culture: (Wikipeida) The defining theme is the presence of a great number of very different people in a very limited space – most of them are strangers to each other. This makes it possible to build up a vast array of subcultures close to each other, exposed to each other’s influence, but without necessarily intruding into people’s private lives.
Rural culture: The Health Resources and Services Administration of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services defines the word “rural” as encompassing “…all population, housing, and territory not included within an urban area. Whatever is not urban is considered rural. Webster defines it as; of or relating to the country, country people or life, or agriculture. (Rural America communicates more with each other, than Urban America does.)
Ok, so how did Rural America affect the election?
The Electoral College:
The founding fathers established it in the Constitution as a compromise between election of the President by a vote in Congress and election of the President by a popular vote of qualified citizens. The process consists of the meeting of the electors where they vote for President and Vice President, and the counting of the electoral votes by Congress.
The Electoral College consists of 538 electors. A majority of 270 electoral votes is required to elect the President. State’s entitled allotment of electors equals the number of members in its Congressional delegation: one for each member in the House of Representatives plus two for Senators.
Generally the electors vote in favor for their party, but some states don’t require that by law, so some electors may vote for the other party. We call those people, “Traitors”. Ha ha.. actually they’re called, “Faithless Electors”.
Now the winner of the national popular vote typically takes the presidency with its included electoral votes, but there have been now, five cases which this did not happen. The last case prior to President Trump, was President Bush winning the electoral and not the popular vote.
Why does this system seem to work for us here in the good-ole USA?
Well as I see it, by putting checks and balances within our 50 states by giving states with lower populations a fighting chance for the presidential candidate. (Example)
11 states with the highest population.(est.)
1. California -> 38,332,521
2. Texas -> 26,448,193
3. New York -> 19,651,127
4. Florida -> 19,552,860
5. Illinois -> 12,882,135
6. Pennsylvania -> 12,773,801
7. Ohio -> 11,570,808
8. Georgia -> 9,992,167
9. Michigan -> 9,895,622
10. North Carolina -> 9,848,060
11. New Jersey -> 8,899,339
Total State Population -> 179,846,633
The US population in 2016 according to the US Census Bureau = 322,762,018
322,762,018 divided by 2 = 161,381,009
Hypothetically just 11 states out of 50 could control the presidential election if it was only popular vote! Of course there are variables like, how many people in these numbers are registered to vote, but basically, 25% of the US states could control the other 75%. And who would be in control? Yep, the Urbanites, leaving Rural America out in the cold.
Matter of fact, if California wasn’t included in this election, (Let’s say they had seceded from the Union.), then Trump would have one the popular vote too!
2016 Election Results
Trump -> Electoral votes = 304 -> States carried = 30
-> Popular vote = 62,985,105 -> 45.9%
Hillary -> Electoral votes = 227 -> States carried = 20
-> Popular vote = 65,853,625 -> 48.0%
California -> Clinton = 8,753,788 -> Trump = 4,483,810
Clinton won by -> 4,269,978
If we remove Clinton and Trumps California votes from the US total.
Clinton pop votes = 65,853,625 – CA votes = 8,753,788 = 57,099,837
Trump pop votes = 62,985,105 – CA votes = 4,483,810 = 58,501,295
Trump wins the popular vote by removing one of the largest populated states!
So even though Hillary won by 2.1% or 2,868,529 popular votes, Trump won by carrying 10 more states and 77 more Electoral votes. Also Trump lost 2 electoral votes to Faithless Electors, while Hillary lost 4 electoral votes to Faithless Electors. This is how our current election process works, some will disagree with it, some will agree, but it’s the best process we have at this time.
This past election Rural America’s voices were heard, which could help Ufology. Voting in a president that is hard-wired to Rural America could help with Disclosure. Why? Well there are a lot of reasons. Really good sightings seem to occur in low light pollution areas, from Unconventional Flying craft to balls of light seen, from animal mutilations occurring, to really good events like; Roswell, Aztec, Cape Girardeau, Joplin Spook Lights, Marfa Lights, and the list goes on.
Rural America also seems to carry more of a burden when UFOs are involved.
Main-stream media makes fun of them when they report UFO sightings.
They get little help from the authorities when they report UFO sightings.
They’re tired of losing cattle to Animal Mutilations, millions of dollars lost since 1967!
Families are scared, because what they have experienced, they can’t be explain.
And it seems a lot a people just don’t care about the topic, because it doesn’t personally affect them.
So, it’s my opinion that UFO Disclosure may be closer with President Trump, than with Former Secretary of State, Clinton. Why? Well if she was really eager to release information, then why didn’t she do it while being a 2 term First Lady, or when she was Secretary of State, a very powerful position! Plenty of opportunities she didn’t take advantage of. But, a newly elected president that is hard-wired with Rural America, well that might be the nudge we need for Disclosure.
So what can we do? How about sending a letter to the President, informing him about what’s really happening in our back yards. That would be a good start, so that’s what I did.
I wrote a nice letter to President Trump and included a signed copy (yea I signed it, ha ha) of the book, “The 37th Parallel”. In the letter I touched on a couple of subjects, but offered my assistance in the field of UFOlogy. Will he read the letter? Probably not, but maybe someone on his staff will, and maybe someone on his staff will read the book, and maybe the acronym UFO may pop up in the future within his staff, and someone will say, “Hey I know of this guy who may be able to answer that question!” Ok, a lot of maybe(s), but I would like to think the percentage of him reading my letter may be better than the percentage of me winning the lottery, and I do buy tickets now and then.
So it doesn’t matter who voted for who, or how the current president got into office, what matters is everyone working together to achieve positive goals for this country, one being in my opinion, UFO Disclosure. So let’s all agree on that one.
