Selecting the President

Like a good movie plot, many distractions go into selecting a president. And, like a good movie plot, events happen that appear to be important to the characters and storyline. But, like a good movie plot, and unbeknownst to the audience, those things are totally meaningless to what's really happening.

Voters going into the booth is one such distraction. Debates and primaries and caucuses and mudslinging and campaigning are more distractions. The Electoral College is another. Don't get mad, but the 22nd Amendment is just a distraction. All that crap that happened in Florida between George Bush and Al Gore was also a distraction.

You're about to find out how the president gets chosen. This is the way it's been done since Franklin Delano Roosevelt got elected to a fourth term. You're not going to like it. You're probably going to feel deceived and shat upon. You may become so enraged you'll want to protest or even defect to another country.

It's very simple. The selection of the president is done by committee. The actual selection is made two or three terms before the selected president takes office. Whether it's two or three terms is determined by whether or not the prior president was selected to be in office for one or two terms.

The committee consists of three people. The head of the FBI picks one field agent to be on the committee. The head of the CIA picks one federal court judge to be on the committee. It can be any federal court level, but not Supreme Court. Then, the field agent and the federal judge pick one citizen of voting age, but not employed by any government, to join them on the committee.

The committee meets on the very day the citizen is chosen - once, for one day, and then disbands. If the agent and the judge do their jobs right (and for the most part they have), the citizen won't know what's going on. The committee decides who the president will be, and for what number of terms, two to three terms hence. They send their selection back to the heads of the FBI and CIA who keep it in a safe place until the proper time.

This all may sound like a big conspiracy theory. Or a lie. Or even a movie plot. Maybe it is. Maybe it isn't.

John F. Kennedy was supposed to serve for two terms. Sadly, his assassination cut that short, and Lyndon Johnson finished what should have been Kennedy's first and second terms. Gerald Ford completed Richard Nixon's final term in office. Gerald Ford could never have served a second term because that was the end of Nixon's time whether he resigned or not. Jimmy Carter was always destined to be a one-termer. As was George H.W. Bush. George W. Bush's presidency was chosen two terms prior to him taking office. The president we "elect" in 2008 was chosen before George Bush took office. And so on.

Marie,

I subscribe to elite theory (which does not involve conspiracy), and so I do not believe that our presidents are choosen for us in advance - it just looks that way.
