2012 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
.....for the election of
the most powerful earthling among 6,973 billion and counting
for next four years 2013-2017....
....TODAY PVAF PRESENTS THE STUDY
THE INCREASING POWER OF MEDIA IN INTERNET WORLD
OF TODAY AND FUTURE
.....AS UNHEARD OF OR EXPERIENCED
IN KNOWN HUMAN HISTORY....
|In the USA 2012 Presidential Debate No.1 on October 3, 2012 watched
live on TV by some 60 million USA citizens and millions-billions on this
planet Earth....some amazing facts about human behaviour was
revealed...some of it for the first time in human known history:
|- 10.3 million tweets were fired off during the first of
three presidential debates. That’s 10.3 million messages in
140-characters or less sent out over 1.5-hour period. Twitter says it is
the most tweeted event in recent U.S. political history, beating out any
of the 2012 convention speeches. (ABCNewsGoCom)
|- But beyond the sheer volume of information and humor, there
was genuine discussion happening on the social platform. As people
watched they clung to phones, tablets, laptops to share their reactions.
Some voiced their frustration with a particular candidate, while others
remarked on the style of the debate. - Yes, in the end it amounted
to more than 10 million tweets, but each on its own represents the
impact of social media on this election:
...Every one of those tweets gave
someone a public voice....
|But then these tweeters were also watching and listening to the
debate....meaning people were mutli-tasking....which has been proved by
social and mind sciences that...multi-tasking really screws up human
mind and body...because mind is most efficient when doing one thing at a
|SO THEN THESE
TWEETS HAVE HAD A POTENTIAL
TO DISTRACT THOSE WATCHING THE DEBATE
INTO NOT HEARING THE TRUTH
ALLOWING THE EYE SIGHT TO PREVAIL INTO
WATCHING THE "BODY LANGUAGE".....
|....and this showed up next day in
all media reporting and all media all surveys and polls....
......which universally had a consensus that:
|....Romney won the debate on
"style" by the margin of 2 to 1...
...and not only nobody was listening to "substance" put out by Romney or
....and thus all USA citizens failed to discern the Truth and False
which they were looking for in each leadership candidate....
....Not knowing the Truth or False is usually "fatal" for
an individual and also for any nation regardless of type of
as exhibited in the entire known current history of earthlings...
....universally regardless of
race, belief, culture, literacy, developed or developing status
the following human experiences about
Truth and False
has applied to daily lives of
individual earthlings and their communities and their nations:
|Everything we hear is an
opinion, not a fact.
Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.
Marcus Aurlius, Roman
Emperor (Lived: April 26, 121 CE. – March 17, 180 CE)
Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters
cannot be trusted in large ones either..

A German-born theoretical physicist who developed the general theory of
relativity, effecting a revolution in physics in 20th century, regarded
as the father of modern physics; and the most influential physicist of
the 20th century. While best known for his formula E = mc2, received the
1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for the law of the photoelectric effect
which has been pivotal in current evolution of quantum theory.

ALTERNATIVELY THE EVERGREEN UNIVERSAL
"THE TRUTH SHALL PREVAIL"
is eternally true....
The best weapon of a dictatorship is secrecy,
but the best weapon of a democracy
should be the weapon of openness.

"politicians/leaders" would not give out the details of
how they are going to do what they envision/claim would do)

working on the Manhattan Project; one of their sons, Aage Bohr,, was
also a physicist and in 1975 also received the Nobel Prize.
LAST BUT THE MOST PRFOUND FACT ABOUT TRUTH IS.....
The opposite of a fact is falsehood,
but the opposite of one profound truth
may very well be another profound truth.
|It is becoming a universal fact of our recent history...that more
something appears to change it remains more the same.....strange but a
fact...as real changes are very few in recent history...and mostly they
come from the Truth of Sciences that has been repeated/replicated

......how this 2012 USA
Presidential Election is very similar to the 1858 USA Presidential
Election of Abraham Lincoln who profoundly changed human emancipation
concept by freeing USA Slaves...which human concept still has not been fully
"digested" by USA citizens in their frequent revelations of human
racialism among themselves....even though the greatness of the American
citizenry is showcase for all earthlings by electing in 2009 their first
black citizen as USA President.....

President Obama faces the the
greatest task of his re-election campaign:
...making voters forget about
his lacklustre debate performance two weeks ago....
America divided, like it was 1858
....Even in the President Obama's home
there are pockets of Republican support.
There is Ottawa, Illinois, USA, for example,
where President Lincoln in 1858 practices Law.
In this town there is no doubt
even today the country is split.
Just as it was for Honest Abe....
The Globe and Mail:
October 15, 2012; Konrad Yakabuski: Ottawa, Illinois, USA)
(Hyperlinks provided by PVAF volunteers for
your increasing life-sciences knowledge for a happier tomorrow)
In Ottawa, Illinois,
USA, a Rockwellesque city of 18,000 about 150 kilometres
west of Chicago, the “debate” invariably refers to the marathon face-off
between Abraham Lincoln
and Stephen Douglas
that occurred here in 1858.
After all, the downtown statues of the six-foot-four
Democrat testify to Ottawa’s main claim to fame.
The 1858 Ottawa encounter, which drew 12,000 outdoors despite the
32-degree heat, was the first of the seven Lincoln-Douglas debates that
launched Honest Abe’s national career, won him the White House in 1860
and established the format for presidential debates to come. (Though
candidates now speak for two minutes at a time, not 60.)
“It took Lincoln from being a very well known lawyer in Illinois to
being a national figure,” explains Mr. Reed, 54, whose full-time job is
selling potato chips. “Because of how well he took on Douglas in the
debate, it got him invitations to speak across the country. It gave him
a national platform that helped him two years later.”
Now, with the country about as divided as it was on the eve of the Civil
War, Mr. Obama faces the greatest task of his re-election campaign:
making voters forget about his lacklustre performance against
two weeks ago. Campaign aides promised a more aggressive President will
turn up to challenge the Republican nominee’s newly moderate positions
town-hall-style debate set to take place on Long Island, N.Y.
Mr. Reed, however, will not be among those cheering on Illinois’s native
son on Tuesday. Indeed, in Ottawa, where Republican roots run deep and a
young Lincoln practised law in the 1840s, there are few signs of
enthusiasm for the President. Instead, the front page of the local
newspaper bears a story on Mr. Romney's local ties, as tenuous as they
are (his great-great grandfather once scouted the area to build a Mormon
“The problem I have with Obama is that he had an opportunity when he
came in, with Democrats holding the
House [of Representatives]
and the White House, to do so much. The
USA economy was
going off a cliff
and all he wanted to do was
health care,” says Mr. Reed. “That really
turned me off. I don’t think his priorities were right.”
Retired casino worker Stan Dziedzic, 70, begrudges the
administration’s move to deny cost-of-living increases in 2010 and 2011
for pensioners receiving
Social Security benefits. (They got a 3.6 per
cent increase this election year, however.)
“I am going to get Obama out any which way I can,” insists Mr. Dziedzic,
a past president of the historical society.
With greater Chicago and its Democratic core accounting for about
two-thirds of Illinois’ population, Mr. Obama is expected to easily win
his home state next month, albeit by much less than the
25-percentage-point margin he did in 2008.
The real contest in Illinois is for a majority of the state’s 18 House
seats, down from 19 in the current Congress. Republicans swept 11 of the
seats in the Tea Party wave of 2010. But Democrats last year used their
majority in the state legislature to push through new district
boundaries aimed at helping their party regain a majority of the House
“We have some really weird-shaped districts,” Mr. Reed offers.
“Can you say gerrymandering?” adds Mr. Dziedzic.
The main result of the redistricting – other than the fact that no one
seems to know what district they now live in – has been to throw at
least of six of the state’s seats into play. While Democrats had at
first been favoured, most of the races have tightened.
One reason is Democratic Governor
Pat Quinn’s anemic popularity.
Republican governors elected in 2010 in
have pushed through harsh
anti-union reforms to tackle their
deficits. But Mr. Quinn, who squeezed through in 2010, instead raised
the state income tax by 67 per cent to deal with a massive deficit and
public-sector pension liability, neither of which has been solved.
“Taxes are killing everybody,” says Mr. Reed. “I sell Doritos and
Ruffles for a living. That is the first thing people cut out of their
grocery bill when money is tight.”
