The contemporary tycoons of cryptocurrency and the Bolsheviks are like infinite recursive mirror images of elitism and oligarchy, the only subtle change over the last century is that the voluminous annals of pure hate and subversion are now capable of being archived in an etched hard drive. The optical technology is capable of a nano-assembly of all humans born and died over the six thousand years in recreating the life’s storylines of hundreds of billions. good or bad.
As the smoke from the alarming escape velocity of a self-driving vehicle voraciously street hunting for any and all human prey has settled, the financial gifts influencing politics can be traced via the Federal Election Committee’s (FEC) public database and the staggering sums of capital harnessed from the exponential assent of valuated to the barons of Bitcoin and the lucrative progeny of one of the biggest scams in history. Of course, Democratic candidates received the majority of donations from digital monetary entrepreneurs which is a curious fact considering the taxable earnings of each individual who hit the proverbial jackpot in forking over billions to the Treasury Department, and the propensity to support liberal politicians seeking to increase the already stifling bureaucratic infrastructure through raiding the pockets of the wealthy.

The idea to attempt a rebranding campaign, echoes the fluidic marketing paradigm of the prodigious social media platforms in using volatility to mask horrendous and ineffective policy for the sake of record-breaking advertising revenue. Combined with the elements of Trump staunching the anticipated Red Wave, the premise of buying votes in the obscure Conservative corners of the nation sets the table for Democratic momentum in 2024, and pressures Republican donors to match the young hipster elements of instant digital wealth, dollar for dollar.

A recent Rasmussen poll showed that the majority of Americans distrust the current iteration of the election process, and all the country needs at this point is a fiscal scandal tied-in with politics to further dissuade any hope of unification, or at least compromise driven by common sense.
Between the reckless political expenditures on top of the tech and the Bitcoin pyramid, and the questionable mechanisms surrounding the vote tally (see the apparent results of the Arizona gubernatorial race), elections have never existed in such a precarious state, as a proportion of society provides little recourse in pursuing truth and honoring fact.
