How then does it survive?   How are we forever fooled? How do so few, control so     many?

We are continuously lied to by those elected to represent our views. And yet, they don’t care. In a recent poll where only 3% of Americans were in favor of cutting Social Security, While 80% were in favor of cutting defense spending and ending our involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan, the opposite is occurring.

Poll: Voters Prefer Military Spending Cuts To Reduce The Deficit

 Forty-nine percent of respondents said they would support cutting military spending, while just 23 percent said they would support slashing Social Security and Medicare. An overwhelming majority, 69 percent, said they would oppose cuts to social programs.

Even former Defense officials led by former Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Adm. Mike Mullen agree. “In previous eras, increased defense spending may have been required to maintain security,” the group wrote in a joint statement in December. “That is no longer the case. In our judgment, advances in technological capabilities and the changing nature of threats make it possible, if properly done, to spend less on a more intelligent, efficient and contemporary defense strategy that maintains our military superiority and national security.”

The United States of America was never a true democracy. We were a representative democracy. We elect the officials and they represent us. The only problem is they no longer

represent us but the ruling elite who finances their campaigns own them and their loyalty is not to the people but to those business intgerests who bought and paid for them.

Our system has been corrupted and now our word has no meaning. They will tell you anything while running for office, but whether they are Republican or Democrat, they still serve the same interests and those interests are not ours but that of the Major Corporations who paid for them.

President Obama (democrat) is President George W.Bush (republican) only worse. President Bush is President Clinton (democrat) only worse. President Clinton is President George H. W.Bush (republican) only worse. President Bush is President Reagan (republican) only worse. The main agenda no matter who was elected was the same. They quibble over small things but not on the main things.

Neither of these parties serve the people. Their main objectives have always been dictated by those who bought and paid for them.

I feel a change is coming as the American people are becoming tired of the lies and what this nation has become. A new revolution is brewing and this will end the elitest controlling this government. It will come at great cost as all revolutions do. But I can sense it brewing, and where will you stand when it does?
