What is "Political Pinball"?
Pinball is a type of arcade game, usually coin - operated, in which points are scored by a player manipulating one or more steel balls on a playing field inside a glass-covered cabinet called a pinball machine. The primary objective of the game is to score as many points as possible. Points are earned when the ball strikes different targets on the play field. A drain is situated at the bottom of the play field protected by player-controlled plastic bats, called flippers. A game ends after all the balls fall into the drain. Secondary objectives are to maximize the time spent playing (by earning "extra balls" and keeping the ball in play as long as possible) and to earn free games (known as "replays").
Political Pinball is a political game, monetary operated (with tax payer money) in which points (votes) are scored by a politician manipulating voting balls (the people) on a biased media controlled playing field inside a green colored cabinet (United States). The primary objective of the game is to gain as many votes as possible. Votes are gained by the player (politician) coercing the ball to strike the targets (Example: Illegal Immigrants) that the player wants manipulated to gain the most votes. There are two "Flippers" one for the left and one for the right.
Four years ago the Political Pinball Machine was adjusted by the owners (Special Interests) so that it would lean to the left. Leaning to the left and the fact that the right flipper was PURPOSELY malfunctioning gave the left politician an advantage. The ball continuously struck the Left Flipper and the politician flipped the ball in the direction that he wanted it to go; thus, gaining a bigger score of votes. In the next political game the owners have readjusted the machine so that it will lean to the right! Evidently, the previous winner didn't "EARN" any "Replays"!
The political Players from both the left and the right have shaken and banged on this machine so much that they have completely "tilted" (destroyed) it. The owners are replacing this National pin ball machine with a new International pin ball machine!
NOTICE THAT THE OWNERS (SPECIAL INTERESTS) RIG THE POLITICAL PINBALL MACHINE SO THAT THE OUTCOME WILL BE IN THEIR FAVOR!
