  •  Consent of the governed? So the massive (11+ / 0-)

    trillion-dollar looting by Wall Street criminal cartels was consented to by the governed?  And the massive cover-up by a complicit government on the take is also being consented to by the governed?

    The thousands of cookie-cutter laws, regulations, policies, etc., specifically designed to strip citizens of rights, to subjugate them to corporatist controls, that's all being consented to by the governed.

    Mets, we're entered a stage where a proto-fascist corporate state is in rapid ascendancy.

    Your idea of the U.S. as a democracy is an illusion.

    If you were a true liberal, you would have to come to that conclusion.  All you have to do is observe what's happening and think.
