  •  the congress is no longer composed of leaders (0+ / 0-)
    they are lobbyists and they do what their donors order.  I believe that we are living through a fundamental reorganization.  It has been common knowledge that lobbyists actually write the legistlation since the early 1990s.  Our public discourse, television, is pure jingoistic garbage and PR.  The voters who aren't apathetic have been driven to the polls for a generation with authoritarian "tough on crime" propaganda.  The process has already been hollowed out.  Very little of substance is being given up by our legistlators.

    I don't think people will understand what's happening until they turn off their fucking TVs.

    •  Turn off their TVs..... (0+ / 0-)

      By that time it will be too late.  I believe we are no longer a democracy, rather have been on the slippery slope
      and have passed the point of a democracy into....I don't know what we have become.

      I believe our congress sees what is happening (these are not stupid people),but is afraid to do anything. The only reasonable explanation is that they are afraid
      to act.
