Great find, thanx for sharing.
If anyone has read my posts, this is what I have been talking about.
The government is ran by, and for, the capitalist class. The "government" is not to blame, it is those who have hijacked government in order to control the state for capitalist interests.
The whole political spectrum sold to us by the MSM is an illusion, there is no opposition to the capitalist class in government. There is no one representing workers. There is NO left-wing. Only a pseudo left-wing that is nothing but liberal right-wing, and mostly designed to give people issues to be concerned with that do not have an effect on the real problem, the capitalist economy. Issues that simply distract and divide working people, and keep us from organizing.
The "government" does nothing but make sure workers don't organize, and keep making profit for someone else.

Replace the word "capitalist" with "corporate fascist" and you'll be right. Those businesses and industries, along with the federal government, long ago abandoned capitalism.

If, by your statement, removing laws helps keep things like this from happening, exactly what laws would you get rid of that would in any way fix this problem?
Honestly that makes zero sense to me, but please explain your position.
I think we'd be better off without the PATRIOT Act and NDAA for instance. Most of the laws passed in the last decade have been to the detriment of the public and freedom. It was illegal to give money in unlimited amounts to politicians not long ago and the repeal of Glass-Steagal is a major reason for the failure of so many banks.edit on 19-4-2012 by Asktheanimals because: added comment

I firmly believe that those politicians are heading for a major wake-up call in the coming two years. People are wanking up to the open corruption throughout our governments, and the people will remove it whether these politicians like the idea or not.

I think that pretty much sums up how useful the Democrats are.
People on that list work for however is in the White House at the time, I believe.
Some of them say Clinton/Bush, so they worked in the same position for both sides.
