    their strategy is to talk a good game and do something different entirely and count on the fact that most people will only hear what you said in your speech and your soundbite and will never follow up to see how you voted or what you actually did in other ways.

    Then when election time comes around, the strategy is to just convince everybody that the other guy is Satan himself.

    And the media is complicit because they distract, they don't inform.  Which is why corporate media is sinking like a rock and less and less people watch it every day.  A recent poll showed that 60% of Americans don't trust the corporate news media.

    The propaganda grows every day as the media consolidates and there's more control over it.  I forget who I just heard saying that "the media sides with power".  So they largely do what "power" tells them to do, or not to do.
