"good work america. keep yourselves in the dark. goldman sachs and the other corporations who own both candidates applaud you for your continued reluctance to research who ACTUALLY controls these elections and runs your government through their crony ties with our nation's so-called leaders. either way, you are unwittingly voting for the empirical-based infrastructure as they laugh and rejoice in their super-immune pseudo-fortresses of infinite, unrestrained control at the alarmingly gullible public of a country who refuses to look beyond a system designed to keep all of the wealth and power in one place. a system where a "lesser of two corporate evils" is adequate enough of a choice for most citizens whose main (if not only) concern is "voting out" whichever opponent seems to be more of a liar, while unknowingly being shackled even tighter to the reigns of the corporate entity who continues to maintain its locked power structure over the minds of
the working-class. "a vote for a 3rd party candidate is a vote thrown away" is precisely what they WANT you to think. in actuality, a vote for either of two corporately funded, banker-owned government lapdogs who have all of their speeches written for them, all of their opinions handed to them, and their on-stage characters molded prior to the start of their campaigns all the way down to the faux working-class buttoned up sleeves and pathologically outgoing smiles is a vote thrown away as far as i am concerned. the only thing we can do now as americans is to open our minds, our eyes, and our hearts to the possibility that there is another, better way to live and that there are more choices than what are set forth for us on the media-prepared dinner plates we devour in our reality TV living rooms, as we drink down the mentally-numbing concoctions served to us every evening on the daily news.

as soon as one admits to himself the fact that he is owned by someone else, it is immeasurably easier for him to break free, and only a matter of time before he does."

people go from one extreme to the other it seems.

All corporations are not evil, or even bad. Some are good. It's when they are left unchecked with no regulation or government oversight that they become a problem and a detriment to society.

Government is not good, or bad either. It just is. It's when it's left unchecked by oversight of the constituency that it becomes a problem and a detriment to society.

Regulation and governance are just part of the equation in order for it to balance.

Got to love those who cry about the evil corporations and the power they have, who then turn around go out and vote for those who they know are being funded by those same evil corporations.

I doubt he even read my last post... or else didn't understand it which is more likely.

Some corporations might be evil, that doesn't mean they all are.

It's all a matter of opinion, anyway.

oh and some people arrive at their opinions rationally, but others are irrational.

These discussions help sort out which is which.
