What’s considered to be true is fought over. Individuals search for truth but groups search for consensus—and society is the largest group. So the biggest problem we run into is this: What society wants for you is not always what’s good for you.

America should create a 3rd political party (virtual), headed by a Democrat / Republican based on who wins POTUS election

When a Democrat wins, Republican runner is 3rd party's candidate and, vice versa

3rd party wins when Dems & GOP votes are less than non-voters

It'll be fun ✌️

== Example ==
Donald vs. Hillary;
Runners; Mike & Tim
Donald wins.

Now check his votes (63 Million) is greater than non-voters (92 Million)? no, so..

Tim is the POTUS.

If you want to be rewarded, you have to be irreplaceable.

If you want to be irreplaceable, you have to be unique.

If you want to be unique, you have to be authentic.

If you want to be authentic, stop listening to everyone and everything else.

It’s drowning “you” out.
