I find it hilarious how some of you will find a conspiracy in all of that - shadow govt. controlling etc. When it's just how politician's get to power by saying what people want them to say, and then when in power a more realistic approach is always needed - like pumping money into the economy etc.
the average person doesn't have the intelligence or the expertise to figure out for themselves how to run the economy.
Running for office means saying what the people bark for (which if often a complete load of rubbish) and been president is doing what is actually best from what his advisors and his own economic expertise tells him. Yes they make mistakes, but they don't purposely ruin the economy.
They are human after all - not some aliens/robot/monster trying to get us all. And the same with the rest of the govt. - there are no illuminati after us all. The govt. are the human beings that you elected. The truth is earned by going out there and talking to those people, that people on here claim are illuminati, aliens, reptilians etc.

There is no democratic party, or republican party, they are simply double faces of one corporate entity with one policy... they are one same faction and neither... work for your benefit.
Due to incredible level of corruption within every layer of US government and financial system - I seriously doubt one US president can defeat such establishment. Many people invested many years in developing a consistent criminal network focused towards their benefit.
Originally posted by jd140As a canidate they have no clue what comes across the Presidents desk. They can promise anything and everything. They might even say these things with the greatest intentions of actually doing what they say. Then they get elected and are privy to all the stuff they normally wouldn't get to see, crap themselves and spend then next 4 years trying to keep at least half of their promises.

Seriously, the way presidential candidates that become president do a 180 on practically every single thing they promise is plain weird.Either they are pathological liers who feel no emotion or regret....or as soon as they become president some crazy CIA dude walks in and goes all MK-Ultra on them.Thats the only two viable options imo.
