Both Parties are Corrupt...
"A blogger at albatross.org correctly stated in 1994, “The problem in America isn’t that the Republican party has sold its soul to corporate wealth, Christian fundamentalism and plutarchs. The problem with America is that Democrats have, too. The problem with America is that the Republicans and the Democrats are units of the same organization, an organization that has consolidated its control over the American political process to the exclusion of all others.” (http://albatross.org/journal/archives/000789.html)"
"Noam Chomsky says, “The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum – even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there’s free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate.” In short, we are taught to think in terms of “A and B”. Therefore, if “C” is presented, we either discount it as impossible or our peers remind us that only “A and B” are possible to keep us in line."
