It doesn’t matter who you vote for, America. It doesn’t matter if you support the donkey party or the elephant party, it doesn’t matter what your personal ideology is or how you think your government ought to behave; a specific agenda will be marched forward regardless of what you want and what you believe. Your country is ruled by an elite class for whom your personal opinions about how America should behave and what sort of leaders it should have are nothing but a mild inconvenience, easily circumvented by mass media propaganda and legalized bribery in the form of corporate lobbying and campaign donations.
… the American people from this obscene government overreach, but it did the exact opposite instead. The press is the only profession explicitly protected under the US Constitution so that it can serve as a check against government abuses and because a well-informed citizenry is essential to a functioning democracy, but instead of checking these abuses the corporate media has been choosing to facilitate them, and instead of informing the citizenry the corporate media has been choosing to lie to them.
