Some may look at this and say "big deal," but it really is a huge problem. I know for a fact that there are still people who do not believe this is
occurring, and those who do, for the most part, understand that this is wrong.
Anyone who represents corporate interests, or anyone on any business' payroll or who make money from any business should NOT be allowed to
participate in government. Our politicians are supposed to represent the interests of the people; that's why we vote them into office.
There is huge pressure, when working for both a business and the people, to choose only ONE to benefit, and many politicians succumb to their greed,
so the people suffer, although it isn't always apparent initially.
There should be some new bills passed that eliminate these conflicts-of-interest in politics. A 3rd grader could tell that this is BAD for the general
Excellent thread...........was watching a Sunday Political program "Moyer's Crony and Capitalism"
And folks...............this is the way it is.
Our government has been bought by our real "god" the almighty dollar.
Here are a few videos and boy, while short, they show you how both parties, Republican / Democrat are both whores to the large corporations that have
#2 at 3:41 - the solution and it ain't pretty...............things will have to get a lot worse for the common man/woman until the real change which
must come from the people change what is now taking place.
Description of video:
Bill Moyers interviews David Stockman about the undue influence of Big Money on elections and thereby destroying Democracy.
The deregulation and change in attitutde on the part of investors Banks corporations over the last thirty years from Ronald Reagan to Clinton to Bush
to Obama the changes made to give free rein to the market has become disastrous for America and the American people.Wall Street is motivated by Greed
getting larger and larger returns on their investments without any concern of the negative impact this has had and is having on the American people
and the nation
I'm going to watch the rest of the show on TV which is a more recent show, but this video hopefully wets your appetite to put down that damn ipod,
Xbox, HP / Twilight Novel because as I've state before, folks there are real vampires, and they live, breathe and work on Wall Street.
If we don't change and I mean really change this conspiracy, we're (or most of us) are literally going to go down the tube.
We have to get corporations out of our politics COMPLETELY by a Constitute Amendment.
Money must be taken out of politics...........this solution alone is addressed in the video above and until people realize how much our politicians
have been bought out and demand a change things will continue to degenerate.
Couldn't help it these are soooooooooooo good I'm adding one more.
Description of video:
Again, it's just not Democrats, it's also the Republicans as well - they ALL work for the bankers and large corporations.
If we want REAL CHANGE, we're going to have to change the way our politicians do business.
One more...................you need to see this.
How our political business is done.
"Throw Them All Out" by Peter Schweizer - I'm ordering his book.
We still think that to get rich requires hard work, focus and applying yourself. No more............it's now who you know, inside tips (that for most
of us would be illegal) and using your power in office to enrich yourself at the expense of your true calling to
Now I did a thread (that got hardly any notice and a lot of so what, I don't care) our Senators and Congress get really lush medical and retirement
packages most of us could only dream of............AND THEY ARE SUPPOSE TO WORK FOR US
If you folks are hopping mad and don't take to the streets (our voting system is rigged so your votes really don't count)........you're a bunch of
compliant sheep and get exactly what is coming to you and your family.
This last video is over 30 minutes but is the most vital one of the three to get a clear understanding of what the hell is really going on.
We need a second revolution.
Yes honestly we do, it's time.
