On the way to the White House the identification of voter blocs becomes key to 
the work. In which blocs now would a candidate admitting to meditating be a 
negative? A positive?  

Yesterday in Fairfield, Iowa at a small shop we had a grocery bag stuffed with 
a X-ian flier insert that was all about TM being religion, cult and dangerous.  
Mindfulness practice maybe gets a pass and is not? 

 Voter bloc, how much could confrontational conservative X-ians as a particular 
vote bloc matter anymore to a candidate now admitting they meditate for their 
own well-being? 

 A 'meditating' candidate might be a plus to millennials. Can millennials and 
Gen-X and Y outweigh the shrinking rabid religious X-ian bloc in America? Would 
it be safe for any of the candidates to let it be known they meditate? Even 
'hip'? ..Maybe in the next election cycle.

 That is an interesting distinction, what, that mindfulness being out of a 
Buddhism teaching is possibly seen (by who?) as more benign?  Yet, recommending 
‘meditation’ to patients as preventive medical practice is now a part of 'best 
practices' of the AMA.

 Most voters would probably be OK with a mindfulness practice, but not with TM.

 In the postmodern now would it really be a liability towards getting votes 
enough to the presidency for a candidate to admit they had learned to meditate? 
 And even, that they do regularly stop to meditate?

 Generally about a 1 in 300 chance or a little better that any of these 
baby-boom age candidates learned to meditate, given the population in the US in 
the late 60’s and 1970’s. As you say, Depending on his attitude in the 1970s.

 Depending on his attitude in the 1970s Trump may have learned TM too.  It was 
the "in" thing to do back then.  On 10/18/2016 11:03 AM, feste37 wrote:

 Trump’s kids are meditators, too. At least some of them. If that’s supposed to 
have had a positive influence on Trump, it obviously hasn’t. Or perhaps if they 
hadn’t been meditators, he would actually have been shooting people on 5th

 I have the very uncomfortable feeling that Doug is actually looking for 
reasons to promote voting for Trump on FFL. I hope I'm wrong, but I'm not sure 
how else to interpret this post.

 Om, someone emerged stopping me in a Fairfield, Iowa cafe today 
 telling me in a reassuring way that ‘Malania’ 
 is a meditator. 
 Could the meditator consciousness Meissner Effect be strong enough with
 Malania only a heartbeat away from her President be reason enough
 to vote for her husband?
 Should this ‘fact’ influence the meditator demographic voting bloc?
 Otherwise, what does the science say,
 about disordered narcissism and the effect of meditation?
 What should Common sense say?


 Common sense says it is idiotic to even think that even if Melania were a 
meditator it would have one iota of effect on the asshat that is her husband. 
It hasn't helped anything in the 11 years they have been married so it ain't 
gonna to anything worthwhile now. What a load of hogwash (appealing to the 
farmer in you).
