  • Oct 25, 2016 Honest Political Ads – You’re **cked

    This election season has left most Americans feeling pretty screwed. Good news though, we can make it so we’re not screwed.

    When the two-party oligarchy conspires in EVERY state to actively prevent their competition from having any chance (either through Gerrymandering of districts to create “safe” districts, ballot access laws that keep 3rd parties off the ballot altogether, or by creating other logistical or financial hurdles to access), what is the point of discussing “voter rights” as it applies to casting a ballot? When the two-party oligarchy controls the presidential debates and continuously raises the bar, rigs the polls, etc. to prevent the American public from hearing any ideas other than those found “acceptable” by the two-party oligarchy, what is the point of discussing “voter rights?” When the entire mainstream media is controlled by the same 6 mega global corporations that control the two major parties, and when they all conspire to promote their hand-selected nominees and actively ignore the candidacies of any candidate not promoting the continuation of the crony-capitalist status quo arrangement that now governs our economy, what is the point of discussing “voter rights?” Americans sadly get way too distracted discussing the wrong issues when it comes to elections and how they are being ruled by their masters.
