Response to woo me with science (Reply #8)

Tue Dec 4, 2012, 05:24 PM

9. Worth repeating,

The people are restless, so the media grab is necessary.

After a solid year of campaigning that dominated the airwaves, Print Media, AND the Internet,
what is significant are the Important Issues that did NOT get mentioned or discussed in the National Media,
or by either Political Party.

*The Very Expensive and Failed War on Drugs
(A few states WERE successfully able to breakthrough the Media and Party blackout on this issue as far as using MJ was concerned,
but the monumental ongoing national failure of the War on Drugs was never discussed.)

*The Expansion of the perpetual "War Time" Powers of the Unitary Executive for a War on a Word.
When "Terror" is finally defeated, will the Unitary Executive surrender these new supra-Constitutional Powers?

*The NDAA, The Patriot Act, The Homeland Security Dept, and the growing Surveillance/Police State

*The Privatization, Militarization and National Co-Ordination of local Police Departments

*The growing Private Prison Industrial Complex

*The War in Afghanistan (superficially mentioned in one debate, basically glossed over)

*The Expansion of the War on Terror and US Military operations in other sovereign countries

*The destruction of America's Working Class due to unregulated International Trade (so called "Free Trade"

*The ongoing Privatization of our Public Schools

*The ongoing Privatization of everything else

*The Privatization of our Vote Counting and Election Reporting mechanisms
(Voter Suppression WAS a topic, but not the lack of transparency and accountability of the elections themselves)

*A remedy for "Too-Big-to-Fail" (can't believe THIS was NEVER mentioned)

*The Environment & Global Climate Change

*An HONEST discussion of Wealth Disparity, and the widening gap.
(a 3.5% increase on the Top Bracket is NOT going to change anything
but does make for good Kabuki Theater.)

Our Media has become monolithic and so easy to control by TPTB that important issues that affect our daily life and basic democracy can be eliminated from the Public Debate and Public Consciousness as long as BOTH dominant Political Parties AGREE.

You will know them by their WORKS,
not by their rhetoric, promises, or excuses.
