I used to believe in the conservative agenda. I have seen my own system fail our nation. We have politicians who are bought and paid for by men like Mr. Murdock.

This means "We the People" no longer control our government. Our CEO's do. On rare occasions we do get someone elected who is not on the side of the CEO's. It is very difficult for these few voices to stand out loud enough to make change.

Mr. Murdock and men like him such as big oil executives, to mention just one other, control things like oil process, energy technology , health insurance and even health care and medicine.

Many of you fell in love with conservatism under Ronald Reagan as did I. It has fail us. I beleive many of you fellow middle class people are not seeing is the bigger picture of what conservatism brought to our country.

That is CEO's control our congress.. as example "Health Care Insurance". Do you or your company pick your provider? Your company does of course with perhaps a few options. Guess what? The American public does not get to vote on who is running the Corporation you work for yet more and more control of our Nation is being turned over to these Corporations.

We have Corporate Socialism and that is what Mr. Murdock does not want to lose. He cannot be voted out. He has control over his viewership to a large extent.

So really the choice we have with all these issues is weather we want Corporate Socialism or Government by elected officials Socialism.

I would also argue that not everything needs to be "for profit"
such as news and health care. We should have alternatives ran by people we can vote out as a Nation.

Just really try and think deep about the bigger picture and not what Reagan intended. Reagan had good intentions. The corruption of money and power at the executive level of Corporations are what ruined it.

Obama is trying to reverse that. I honestly do not know if his ideas are the right ideas. I do know that letting more of our country get controlled by people we cannot vote out is a VERY bad thing.

Mr. Murdock has been so wealthy and powerful for so long that he cannot even understand where I am coming from. He thinks in a different perspective than the rest. He speaks from a life of wealth and gluttony. He has no true empaty for you and your middle class life style. You can see the spin by watching Fox News (which used to be my favorite) you can see through it him trying to brain wash you so he and men like him can keep power. MSNBC is the exact opposite and CNN is not far from the left either.

Think please, really think. Those with the money do control Congress through controlling you.
