    votes really don't matter that much anymore when corporations financially back the same candidates who are willing to lie their way into office and then stab the people in the back.  I hate to say that, but just look what happened in 2008 and where we are now.  Corporate candidates can act like a Democrat, say all the right things, and then do what the corporations and wall street want once they are in office.  Bait and switch, I believe.  The people want to believe so badly that someone is on their side and the media is so brought off that the truth is hidden.  The nativity of many Americans isn't helping.  Throw in religion and the fact that people want to believe that there is a higher power that makes everything OK, and it makes for a lot of confusion and chaos.

    We are electing the same people because the money won't back anyone who is truly for the people in this country.  Look at history, Mussolini, Hitler, etc.  If you look at the old films of these men, they had thousands of people cheering them on and believing in them, all at the cost of other citizens.

    We are at the same point in this country, it is just being done insidiously as to not appear apparent.  But, take from someone who has had survivors of the holocaust in their family, it is happening again, it just looks different and being done financially.  Just look at the Warsaw Ghetto and the other ghettos they created as a prelude to genocide.

    I hate to think that this is correct, but my gut has been telling me since Bush II that we are headed into a very bad time and probably one of the darkest time in American history.  What is happening now beats out McCarthyism, Nixon, and even Viet Nam (and I thought we would never see that happen again).

    If you are digging yourself into a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging!
