No matter how you look at it Phage, this is a problem for the majority of Americans.
Why bother having a government and taxes or country if they are not serving the interests of all Americans.


represent.us...


The preferences of the average American appear to have only a miniscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.”
One thing that does have an influence? Money. While the opinions of the bottom 90% of income earners in America have a “statistically non-significant impact,” economic elites, business interests, and people who can afford lobbyists still carry major influence.

What we need are members of the public who can monitor every division of our government to make sure everything is being run legally. It's either that or there will be a full-blown revolt at some point. The reigns of power must be restored to the people and the States. This Federal monster has become a multi-headed hydra that does nothing but suck the lifeblood of the country and is NEVER held accountable, for anything. Case in point: The fallout from the multiple failures on 9/11 was promotions!

We had our chance to reign in the beast during Iran Contra but the investigation and prosecution became a national disgrace of caving in to DC and AIPAC influence. GHWB, Cheney, Rummy and others were allowed to continue their illegal shadow government activities until it has become the norm.

How many of that 90% communicate with their representatives and make their feelings known to them? It doesn't cost much to send an email or make a phone call. I've done it. And gotten replies. Have you?

But if it is fundraising that's the problem, aren't the voters culpable to some degree for falling for the advertising which the funds buy?

That’s all we can do right now to stop this crime amongst us.

The people don’t even realize their life is being run by criminals on the par with the mafia and international drug dealers.

They lie, steal, and get caught and yet a great portion of the American people still think many of these crooked politicians are heroes.



What a wonderful thread... the reason the Mob got cranked down
on in the 50's was the government doesn't like competition. Then
like the Nazi doctors, the real creative guys changed sides of the rail.
Bumped.. and bumped off too. perfect.

Why no obiously overdue reprisals? Simple..
There's nothing like a good neurotoxin cocktail and
light pulse photon numbing of the temporals. God I
love it: the TV's gone since Olbermann got fired, and
I'm still as dumb as a frozen shrimp. Hold the Sau-Sea
Cocktail sauce, it makes my old nose hairs curl up now...

"The more we do to you, the less you seem to notice
we're doing it." Joe Mengele, snappy dresser.

If there was some magic-wand antidote for what the
average American has been swimming around in for
100 years-- and all woke up tomorrow morning we'd
be Henry Ford x 300 million. That's a lot of sisal... and
I wonder if there are enough lampposts for the deserving.

This is an awesome rant, but nowhere have I seen any law breaking being done. Campaign finance reform needs to happen, but the Republicans believe that Corporations are people too, ask Mitt, if you can get his face out of his binders full of women.

Then maybe nothing can be done if all they do is complain to each other about it and yell on internet forums.

I and many others have spoken out and sent emails as well on being against Monsanto Labeling, The TPP and so on and in return have thumbed their noses at us. When it comes to minor social issues they may do something but when it comes to their precious chosen corporations with deep pockets, nothing changes.

Some of us live within our means, and make due on our part time jobs. I am a veteran, and probably been exposed to more chemicals than you can even imagine, and was never in combat, and had, what most would consider a safe job.

Labeling is a local issue (personally, I think it's a dumb idea).

The TPP passed narrowly, apparently 208 members of the House agreed with you.

I agree that Congress hasn't done much of anything. For a while now. I don't think that has to do with money though, it's more about pissing matches.

I signed a document a many years ago that said I would protect and defend the US Constitution, I did it voluntarily. I am appalled at the interpretation that some make of that document. I have not been active duty for many years, but am still determined to protect and defend that document.

This right here, we live in a huge country, my concerns do not match yours, but that doesn't make us enemies, unlike many would like us to believe.

It's not a LOCAL issue when the products are being sold country wide, world wide.
I guess you find that labeling ingredients is a dumb idea, or labeling nutritional facts is another dumb idea?

Your constant defence for the status quo, now that's what's dumb.

Not at all. But I think that labeling GM products is dumb because it will not result in a better informed consumer.

A non-GM label shows those who are concerned exactly what they want to know. A label which says "may contain GM material" tells them nothing they don't already know.

What kind of doubletalk is that? Identifying a product as an engineered genetic freak show will result in a hell of a lot more informed consumer.
