The sections or parts of the platforms that the presidential candidates reject tends to tell us what portions they think are unpopular to the larger general population.
That is one observation of "political science", but the actual meaning of "political science" is a bit more real than the machinations of politicians.
For example, the American Political Science Association indicates that "Political scientists use both humanistic and scientific perspectives and tools and a variety of methodological approaches to examine the process, systems, and political dynamics of all countries and regions of the world" (What Is Political Science?).
Clearly, this shows that many U.S. politicians do not practice political science, rather, many of them are much closer to practising political fantasy.
Let's take a look at the global warming induced climate change aspect of the two political platforms to further illustrate the issue.
The Democratic Platform:
We know that global climate change is one of the biggest threats of this generation -- an economic, environmental, and national security catastrophe in the making. We affirm the science of climate change, commit to significantly reducing the pollution that causes climate change, and know we have to meet this challenge by driving smart policies that lead to greater growth in clean energy generation and result in a range of economic and social benefits.(Huffington Post). The Republican Platform:
The environment is getting cleaner and healthier. The nation’s air and waterways, as a whole, are much healthier than they were just a few decades ago. Efforts to reduce pollution, encourage recycling, educate the public, and avoid ecological degradation have been a success.(NeoCon Planet: The Presidents of Kolob). The democrats have the science correct, the republicans have institutionalized ignorance and have given rise to the new science of Agnotology (see Agnotology: The Surge).
However, President Obama is not complying with the democratic platform in the sense that he is doing all he can to bring grave risk to the Arctic environment by personally accelerating the pollution permits to Shell Oil (see Hottest Month (July) on Record).
The political strangeness that has replaced political science continues with Romney-Ryan agreeing with Obama-Biden on that aspect of political fantasy, which is a very dangerous reality as the democratic plank, quoted above, points out.
Both presidential campaigners evince warmonger ideologies as well, so what choices do the people have anymore?
As we have pointed out time and time again, the voting public has no say in the issues that are the greatest danger to civilization: global warming and nuclear world war:
One can't help but notice the similarities that exist when a comparison is made among politicians running for office this election cycle.(The Elections of Pontius Pilots - 2, see also The W Direction = The Perilous Path). We must find a way to break out of our national stupor, if not for ourselves, then for our progeny.
That comparison would be to compare them to the pilot captain of the Costa Concordia pictured in its place of unrest above left.
In the first post of this series Dredd Blog pointed out that none of them are really what they say they are, nor can they really do what they say they will do, thus the ship of state awaits an uncertain demise, a place of unrest.
Some of those who lie, cheat, steal, and beg for your vote, are not as competent as the captain of the ill fated ship in the photo above.
Yet, they promise you that they will be a heroic Sky Pilot In Chief, while commanding a vast armada of ships, planes, tanks, and nuclear WMD, spread around the world.
"Fake me to your leader" is an apt description of this phenomenon, which will be analyzed more deeply later in this post.
The scientist in the video below mentions that the Earth is being heated each day with the equivalent heat of 400,000 Hiroshima type nuclear explosions:
