Most people don't even know these things are happening because there is nothing to clue them in until it is too late. But even if people were aware of these things well in advance, what power do we have? Voting? Hahahahaha! Yeah like that works anymore. You can blame the public all you want but the sad fact is these things happen because the system is completely against we the people and complete in favor of the ultra-wealthy. The public would stop this if we had any power to but we don't under the current system.

We have power. It's called the second amendment. The trick is to get everyone else on board or you end up looking like the bundy's in Oregon.

Sadly, the few who understand what rights they have were label stupid terrorists by general American population. These same ones who are so thoroughly cowed.

Don't think that will happen...most people today don't know they are living in one.

Knowledge is power. Free the minds of those around you from the death grip of the corrupt education system's teachings and this will come to an end.

The fact that we are reading this post, and that those of us who didn't know this info now do is progress my friend. Things just moved forward a tiny tiny little bit. It's a start.

Incremental progress, maybe, but if we always find out about it too late then how are we to overcome this? They make sure we are kept in the dark and voiceless so they can keep doing what is best for their interests.

I agree with you completely. One hundred percent.
