I think our political machinery (the dems and repubs) have become marginalized by their dependence on media supported 'super stardom'.

Ron Paul's arguments always return to the mandate the American people impose upon their servants.... they don't want the American people to remember

ignoring us..., based on the premise that they (of all people) "know better."
In this matter, and many others, it is the loss of the free press that destroyed our political system. The corporatists got into the halls of power
and allowed the press to be usurped and utterly dominated; we lost our popular education model, and now our kids don't even know what the 10th
