    This stuff is nothing new.

    Too bad it's RT that is reporting it - a news agency pretty much bought and paid for by Moscow. People won't take it as seriously because it comes from there.

    Of course, a bunch of people think stuff like facts coming from the Wash Post are part of some commie plot . . . .

    The few times I've heard Alex Jones, he has talked about this. So let's call him a nut. Let's call anyone that speaks up against establishment a nut.

    That was the the message at Woodstock: Listen to your government! They know what's best!

    The US hasn't been a democracy for decades. Policy isn't determined in Washington it's determined in the corporate board rooms in New York, Frankfurt, Dubai and Beijing. The Supreme Court has facilitated the corporate take over with decisions like "Citizens Untied" and the view that "Money equals speech". Corporate lawyers write the bills that are introduced into congress by their puppet congressmen.

    From Rollerball 1975, eerily prophetic.
    Bartholomew: Corporate society takes care of everything. And all it asks of anyone, all it's ever asked of anyone ever, is not to interfere with management decisions.

    people can't handle democracy, like they can't handle true capitalism
    Its funny because all these tea party patsies who claim they are protecting the constitution would l be royalist

    they want an oligarchy so bad, the are so jealous of Russia. The 2nd amendment is so important to* them because the fantasize that the militias they would form would allow them to be the new KGB and take other peoples property.

    And if you don't think Obama isn't the corp camdidate for gas, youre kidding yourself.
    Look who the republicans ran against him, really a mormon? There is no TP of oppostion w/o Obama and no paralyzes of democracy and EPA regs w/o the party of opposition. Everyone so preoccupied with Obamacare- which both parties knew something had to be done becuz of aging and costs trends--that no one is paying attention to the fracking rights grab, Keystone pipeline
    Everytime I hear someone say Obama is a socialist or a liberal, I just know they are completely clueless. He's the spoonful of sugar to make us swallow all of Cheney/Rumsfield pro Saudi policies, pro gas*

    enter the apologists.
    Obama has gone out of his way to ignore the will of the people more than most all presidents.

    Example: the government takeover of the world's best healthcare system- against the will of a super majority of citizens. And he did it by changing 175 year old congressional rules and repeatedly lying to the American people about nearly every aspect of what he was really doing. Some things you can count on: it wont be "affordable" , you wont be able to "keep your doctor or keep your plan", nor will families "save $2,500 a year in premiums". Many of you found this despicable power grab to be acceptable.

    and if you believe Obama, or any politician, gives a fuck about you, or your healthcare, visit a psychiatrist. (I don't think that's covered)

    This has always been true.
    It's human nature and our democracy is the best that the human race can do at this point.

    i can certainly believe this....we the people have no input into policy. we weren't consulted when dubya decided going to war with iraq was a good idea and inspite of the public's demand that we guard our southern border's integrity they're going to ram amnesty down our throats.
    we have absolutely no say where our tax money goes. it's flushed down the toilet on absolute nonsense.

    we should throw them all out.

    This is why every year they recycle the same old thing to keep us arguing amongst ourselves and keep the focus off of them. Gay marriage. Abortion. War on women. Racism etc etc etc are all distractions. Hell, 65% or more are AGAINST amnesty or legalization of the invaders but it will be rammed down our throats and the same people will be reelected by a large margin.
