I so wish this was the case I believe our senators and congressmen and even our president are controlled like puppets. We have no power
since as a country we are divided by petty differences that our media feeds on to further divide us.
We have a few brave souls that see beyond left and right that continue to fight for the people but it just is not enough, if
Americans would put aside their political divisions for 5 minutes we could take back the power but I dont see that happening for a
couple of generations since the divide has been ingrained in most of us by our families, socio economic status, media and even
our schools. Also many Americans care more about who wins American Idol then what our elected officials are screwing up and I
cant really blame them since it is easier to put your head in the sand then deal with the state our country is in, not to
mention most feel powerless.
The only saving grace is that Americans, no matter what socio economic status, are getting hit in the pocket book and are
suffering from it. that suffer will eventually turn to anger and will hopefully wake many up to the truth but it may be too
late. Remember how gas prices got so high that Americans did start to wake up and get angry and then conveniently they started
to go back down and everyone went back to sleep, all is well in the world. I expect something of the same degree to happen with
the economy about the time tempers start to ignite, I expect a temporary fake patch to lull most back to sleep.
Our senators and congressmen are no longer representing we the people, they represent corporations and vested interests. The sad part
is that Americans did not revolt when that was slapped in our faces after the first bailout.
