I agree with your post.
Truth be told corporate Obama is continuing 80% to 85% of all corporate Bush Cheney failed policies.
And all the Tea Bags just elected to Congress went to a Wall Street fundraiser right before they were sworn into Congress.

Top Senate Democrat: bankers "own" the U.S. Congress /
April 30, 2009 / http://tinyurl.com/c4cbkc
Sen. Dick Durbin, on a local Chicago radio station this week, blurted out an obvious truth about Congress that, despite being blindingly obvious, is rarely spoken: "And the banks -- hard to believe in a time when we're facing a banking crisis that many of the banks created -- are still the most powerful lobby on Capitol Hill. And they frankly own the place." The blunt acknowledgment that the same banks that caused the financial crisis "own" the U.S. Congress -- according to one of that institution's most powerful members -- demonstrates just how extreme this institutional corruption is.
The ownership of the federal government by banks and other large corporations is effectuated in literally countless ways, none more effective than the endless and increasingly sleazy overlap between government and corporate officials. Here is just one random item this week announcing a couple of standard personnel moves:

This entire Lib v Con is all a smoke screen and has been for one very long time. I cannot believe in this age of the WWW and all the news sources that people are dumber than ever. Just watch Leno's 'jay walking' segment and it makes my point. The president is 'controlled' by the MONEY brokers PERIOD. Just like two lawyers on opposite sides in a court battle go off to the bar for drinks after the case is closed, they are friends, deal makers. The same BS goes on in DC and has been going on since George Washington. Only thing back then was they did have respect for the Constitution but over the years as politics grew and these frauds we have find ways to screw the very people that vote them in and they play the DEM versus REP game. It's all a big scam and if anyone does not believe that take a long hard look at what these maggots have done just in the last 10 years since 9/11!!

While they put on the show in the congress and senate they are laughing their ass off at the American public and getting richer doing it. I have dealt with both sides and they both lie. They have NO intention of restoring dignity to this country and they love the fact that they have the public at one another's throat!

You are 100% correct and I can only add one thing about the Constitution.

==========

The Constitution 101:

In the Federalist Papers it said: We were not going to have a monarchy, and we were not going to have a democracy.$$$$$$$

And to this day we have neither. For two hundred years we have had an oligarchical system in which men of property can do well (Dumbya Bush), and others are on their own.$$$$$$$

American politics is essentially a family affair, as are most oligarchies. When the father of the Constitution, James Madison, was asked how on earth any business could get done in Congress when the country contained 100 million people whose representatives would number half a thousand, Madison took the line that oligarchy's iron law always obtains: A few people invariably run the show; and keep it, if they can, in the family.$$$$$$$

Our founding fathers had such a fear and loathing of democracy that they invented the Electoral College so that the popular voice of the people could be throttled, much as the Supreme Court throttled the Floridians on December 12, 2000.$$$$$$$

We were to be neither a democracy, subject to majoritarian tyranny, nor a dictatorship, subject to Caesarean folly.$$$$$$$

As American media is controlled by that corporate America which provides us with political candidates a well-informed electorate is not possible.$$$$$$$

Government Bailouts: A U.S. Tradition Dating to Hamilton
SEPTEMBER 20, 2008 / http://tinyurl.com/ygk788s
The bubble pops. Lenders freeze. Depositors lose faith. Panic spreads. And the government steps in because nobody else will.
Today it is Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke putting together the rescue package for a financial system rocked by falling home prices and a wave of defaults on subprime mortgages.
But a short walk through U.S. history demonstrates the point made by Alex J. Pollock of the American Enterprise Institute: "If you would like an empirical law of government behavior, it is that in a panic or threatened financial collapse, governments intervene -- every government, every party, every country, every time."

Proof of civility. While we can and should disagree when appropriate there is no need for name calling and absurd accusations because we would allow ourselves to be pawns in the great political chess game. Perhaps one day we can stop with the hate that is rapidly consuming our nation while the enemies of the USA sit back and laugh. If we as a nation continue to make the claim that we are the most powerful and have the best educational system then let us all start proving that! We are a representative Republic and it's high time the people we elect wise up to the fact that they work for us and they are to do as we wish not as they think what is good for us.

Both Republican and Democratic parties are propagandists and need the prostitutes in corrupt corporate mainstream and rightwing media.

It serves their interest for most Americans to believe one side is liberal and the other side is conservative.

Truth is Republicans are rightwing corporatist and Democrats are centrist corporatist and so is mainstream and rightwing media.

LIBERAL and CONSERVATIVE?

I THINK NOT!

I Kid You Not!

I am a liberal / progressive who voted for Ron Paul in the New York Primary and Ralph Nader in the general election.

Both men are honest that is why Ron Paul despite receiving millions and millions of votes WAS NOT ALLOWED to speak at the Republican convention.

Both Parties in collusion with corporate mainstream media and corporate rightwing media always ridicule truth tellers.

Ron Paul was the only honest conservative running for president in 2008 on the Republican side. All the rest were liars and would work for Wall Street.

Mike Gravel and Dennis Kucinich were the only honest liberals running for president on the Democratic side. All the rest including liars like Hillary and Obama work in the interest of Wall Street and not main street.

No Debate: How the Republican and Democratic Parties Secretly Control the Presidential Debates / http://tinyurl.com/4q5vf8 / October 2, 2008
The Obama and McCain campaigns jointly negotiated a detailed, secret contract dictating the terms of all the 2008 debates. This includes who gets to participate as well as the topics raised during the debates. We speak to Open Debates founder and executive director George Farah.
Whats missing however is any concern about the fairness of the very structure of the debate. The Obama and McCain campaigns jointly negotiated a detailed contract dictating the terms of all the 2008 debates. This includes who gets to participate as well as the topics raised during the debates. But the contract remains secret and the Commission on Presidential Debates, a private corporation created by the two major parties, has refused to release the contract to the public.
Open Debates is a non-profit committed to democratizing the presidential debate process. Last month Open Debates and nine other pro-democracy groups called on the Commission to make the contract public.

GM Courts Talk Radio Hosts
by Ralph Nader August 11, 2007 http://tinyurl.com/2a45e3
Just when one guesses that the standards and practices of national talk radio could go no lower, General Motors comes along to show the way to new lows.
Automotive News (August 6, 2007), the leading trade journal for the industry, reports that GM is wooing the radio stars. Its article led with the headline:“Puff Piece. Rush Limbaugh is one of the radio personalities GM is working with to talk up its vehicles.”

What is surprising is that GM purportedly enlisted not only the expected suspects like Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Bill O’Reilly but also Bill Press and Ed Schultz, know for their liberal views. Attempts to reach Press, Schultz and Hannity were unsuccessful. Surely, they will be explaining their relationship shortly.

Bush Republicans are antidemocratic with an attraction to authoritarianism.

Liberals are always trying to enfranchise citizens and Bush Republicans always try to block some citizens from voting.( BLACKS & LATINOS )!

Liberals defend the Constitution and long standing institutions like Social Security and Medicare.

Bush Republicans want the USA to go back to the Gilded Age and privatize Social Security and undo “The New Deal”!

Most if not all Bush Republican supporters are not conservatives. They are Neo-Cons who are apologist for the wealthiest top 1% percentile.

They have been thoroughly bamboozled for the last 30 years of rightwing propaganda and corrupt corporate mainstream media filter, which they believe is liberal!

Sincerely,
Leo Strauss
