Who Will Watch The Watchmen?

In any functioning democracy the role given to the Free Press is to guard against the political scam artists and those that would attempt to undermine the underpinnings of democracy. The timid and self serving American mass media refuses to state or even approach the obvious conclusion: The Republican Party is totally engaged in gamesmanship of the political system, wherein their only goal is to destroy the President – not to lead, not to govern – but to destroy. To destroy democracy in America.

At any cost necessary.

And if the common man does not gather to point out the total abdication of this vital and irreplaceable duty the Free Press has now purposely abandoned, who will? The Free Press?

We collectively need to be the watchmen.

This is where the internet can come in handy, more information can flow freely and a privileged controlled press has some competition, although bewarey a lot of bs can get popular support on the internet.
