The puppets change with elections to pacify the people. The puppet masters have not changed and that is why regardless of who (is allowed to) hold office we see no appreciable change in direction. You thought you voted for change, you will not see any deviation from the agenda driven predestination path of the puppeteers. They own all parties and as they plan their global governance they meet in secret behind security screens. Protests are met increasingly with escalated brutality. The managed media report what they are told and put just the right spin on coverage to brainwash the masses.
