Just in case anyone out there still harbors any illusions of the United States as a freedom loving democracy, full of liberty and justice for all...
Let's have a look at what happens to someone who challenges the current control structure by revealing their illegal collusion against actual democracy.
The whole "Russia hacked our election!" nonsense is little more than a ruse to divert our attention from the perpetrators who did in fact hack our election. Anyone who repeats this meme instantly loses any credibility I may have once attributed to them.
How about the opinion of a past president, whom even those who may disagree with his political stance aren't likely to challenge his integrity.
I could go on and on about Manning, Snowden, and a whole host of other less famous people whom our corporate media likes to sweep under the rug.
How do we challenge such a structure? The same structure responsible for bleeding most of the US citizenry dry through various debt scams (healthcare, education, real estate). The same structure bleeding the citizenry dry through the "Hey look! A TERRORIST!" scams, whereupon they tax us to death in order feed the military industrial complex that they benefit from. The same structure that is currently destroying our global future in order to suck more wealth from each of us a few years longer.
We join together, conservatives and liberals alike, putting aside our lesser differences to defeat our common foe. Fighting the corporate corruption that's been consuming our government over the last few decades is quite literally a matter of life and death.
