As always in this Presidential election year, everything revolves around spin. Who else is getting dizzy?
The problem is that even those parties and politicians we want to support, are spinning like tops at a children’s birthday party. So who do we believe?
Well if you believe the far right right-wingers, then the Council for National Policy is just a bunch of wise old guys whose only role in life is the preservation of Democracy and the Constitution. Only thing is, we don’t really know what goes on in their meetings, because they are super secretive, never let on what they are planning, except perhaps National Policy as their name may suggest, and never talk to anyone about anything. All we know is that their members consist of Billionaire Businessmen, Billionaire Bankers, Billionaire Hedge Fund Managers, Billionaire Lobbyists, and Senators, Congressmen and Supreme Court Justices who benefit from their largess.
Transparency in Government?
We the People?
A Government of the People by the People and for the People?

So here we are with the Supreme Court about to deliver us thankfully (that’s sarcasm to all you Right Wingers) from affordable Health Care just as they delivered us from the hands of the ordinary voter into the hands of the Richest people and Businesses in the country with their Citizens United nonsense.
Does anyone really think that the First Amendment guarantees the right of the richest people in the world, who make up less than 1% of the voting population, to put anyone they want in power simply because they have the money?
Or is it that the great voting public believes everything the commercials tell them, especially when the negative untruthful commercials dominate over the sane and truthful.
I wrote in AN UNQUIET AMERICAN that the USA is “….the Land of the Free-for-all and the Home of the Slaves” and it seems that is what is happening right now.
Does a vote for the Right Wing mean Freedom is dead in this country?
