I totally agree, but we keep voting them in, if you want to believe the voting system isn't tampered with. Propoganda was used so much by this election, and the media, which is owned by big corporations who used there power to sway the vote. The media has turned into the "National Enquirer", anything to sell a paper, or get ratings, just do a back track later on the back page, or wee hours of the morning.
Lets forget for a minute, the drawbacks of smoking, but this country was built on the SIN tax, alcohol, tabacco, made Kennedy his money, and for years this country made big bucks on the sale of cigarettes, now the feds, are pushing for no smoking, and have joined forces with the drug companies. Remember, the commercial; "this is your brain, this is your brain on drugs". Now look at the side effects you get from most drugs, which leads to another prescription. Your denied coverage for certain medical treatment, yet they will pay for Viagra. There are no cures anymore, just treatment to control, which leads to dependancy. ......You have victims being prosocuted, for defending themselves against criminals, you have a sick array of jail time that makes no sense. Enron folks go to a federal country club, Martha goes to jail, misdomeaners, get more time, than felony cases...Judges file suit against cleanners for lost pants, yet you try and sue a drug company for a bad drug, and you have to hope for a class action to even be heard. "In God we trust" is written on our currency, yet we can't have prayer. You swear on a bible in court, yet they fight to remove the 10 commandments from the court house. Go figure! Too much sex on tv, yet at least 20x's a day I see a commercial for "male enhancement" or Viagra", but thats ok. We are upside down, and we keep putting our trust in the hands of lawyers, politicians, and big business, and the only ones coming out on top, are them. Slavery has not been abolished. The middle class feeds the poor, and makes the rich, richer, and the constitution is getting buried, and tied in knots. Look at the bones they throw us, while making deals on the other side. Give me something substantial, instead of gay marriage, (who cares really) it's not paying the bills, is it, reducing the defecit? System overhaul is needed, and "WE THE PEOPLE" need to stand up.
I could go on and on, but this would be a novel...History just keeps repeating it's self. I feel like an Isrealite in Egypt.
