Have you ever felt like you were on a bus, and you knew the bus was about to go right over a cliff; only for you to realize that everyone on the bus knows how to drive but no one is willing to fight for control of the wheel? And to your amazement, most people wont even admit that the bus is swerving over the double yellow line?

That is how I feel about America... I don't even know where to start, I am just going to type. This topic will most likely cover the “War on Terror” but it will cover much ground in the area of “Political Conspiracies”

Well, here it is, this is my view of my country. I don't know where to start, so im going with the first thing that comes to mind....

The Media

Democracy requires the active participation of its citizens.. If “the people” wish to have Liberty, the media needs to engage the citizens in the business of governance by informing, educating and mobilizing the public.. The press has been widely proclaimed as the "4th Estate." a co-equal branch of government that provides the check and balance without which government cannot be effective.. The media’s role is to ensure that the government is held accountable to the people.

With the exception of Jon Stewarts’ “Daily Show”, and C-Span, the media fails the public. One can see a conspiracy if one takes a close look at what topics are emphasized, and what topics are not. How is it that the media puts so much time and effort in covering small stories such as Chandra Levy, Elean Gonzales, Lacy Peterson, Natalee Holloway, ect.?... And ignores the wide spread political corruption done by both partys on all levels of Government?

When the media does engage in political matters, all you see is pointless politicized political bickering that accomplishes nothing other than keeping “the people“ polarized & uninformed about real issues.. You never see a real political debate on TV, all you see... Turn on your TV, turn to Fox News or CNN, most likely you will political bickering over gay marriage, the so called war on terrorism, or immigration.

You wont see the media pointing out the most corrupt Congress in the history of the country, you wont see the Media asking the citizens to vote out both parties and elect a new one. You don't see the damage done by lobbyists , or the real scandals.

The Parties


Originally posted by tsloanWe have been putting the same two parties in positions of power in this country for to long and we have long seen the mirror effect surfacing. Mirror effect meaning that both parties are the same...


Both parties are widely corrupt. So if you think voting out a Republican and putting in a Democrat will change anything you are wrong. Its like changing a red dirty diaper and replacing it with a blue dirty diaper. Both parties are full of $#!*! As it stands, you will never get any real change by voting until a new party comes along that is truly for the American People. As it stands, there currently is no party like that that has any significance at all.

This is the Conspiracy people. If you think otherwise then I have to call you a sheep.

Government isn't for the People, The media isn't for the people, how do you take it back?

Strategy

You would have to start at the local level. In your city, you would have to hold a town meeting and point out pretty much what I just said. Im willing to bet many people are fed up and would be willing to start a new party, but you have to start small, you cant just go out and run for President.

If you were successful in forming a local party, you would have to make your message clear and loud. You should say to the School Teachers, Police, Firemen, Lower & Middle Class People that you can do a way better job then what the Mayor is doing.

You would have to have support from the local media or at least the local newspapers , witch wouldn't be hard to do if you had many people behind you.

You should try to get High school & College Students to join or support the movement also. One you get enough support, hold rallies before elections and vote the Democrats & Republicans out.

Your party would have to live up to what it stands for, witch wouldn't be hard of you were doing what Government is supposed to do.

From there, you would have to spread to other cities or show other cities in your state what you are doing and encourage it to happen there. One that happens, the new parties have to take the State Legislature, and your States seats in Congress.

If you can do that, and not be corrupt, it would only be a matter of time before this corrupt Government is out of power. Because other States would see how your state is running, and their citizens would want that in their city and state.

Power to the People!

I love your idea man. It is a great idea to get people more directly involved in politics. Voter Apathy and ignoarance is the source of all of our problems.

However, most people do not want to run for office. Politicians are all seen as slimy. The hours are long and the pay is bad. Even if you are honest and try to help people, your opponents dig deep into your past to try and smear you.

They'd rather just sit back and expect somebody else to do it.

That really is a shame though, that the system has become this rotten.

In ancient Sparta, all citizens were expected to hold office at some point in their lives. They took a great deal of civic pride in trying to give something back to civilized socitey. Today, however, people are educated to think that they are all too stupid to hold office and the only people we can trust are the slimy bastards that we know we can't trust.

In order to be a politician today, you need to be a liar, cheat, thief, and only in it for your own best interests. The only way to advance in a corrupted system is by adding to the corruption.

There is nothing wrong with compromise in a situation. Compromising yourself in a situation is an entirely different problem.

If you always try to work from within the system, it is not you whom changes the system, it is the system that changes you.

part of the problem is that you've diluted the effect of your thread by having it duplicated here and in the pts board.

I wanted to post it here to talk more about the conspiracy side of what im saying. Can anyone point out here where they disagree or say that im wrong?

Is this not one of the biggest conspiracy of all? I would expect that of all places, ATS would have people smart enough to see through this.

Let your words be read.
