Counter-Conspiracy: this is actually carefully crafted political messaging designed to promote apathy amongst voters in order to convince them to stay home and not bother trying to exercise their democratic rights.

I dont think it was ever a question if it was true. My question has always been when will it be over. George Carlin said that "there is just enough shit to keep us together". When will it be to much, scares the crap out of me.

I always think it's funny when people think there will be a "moment" when people just rise up and change something. People in power aren't stupid. They are very well aware that if everyone think hard, have time on their hands and unite, it will be the end for them. This is why they have system in place to counter all those point.

Fascism doesn't come the front door announced.

Well it sucks. With the corruption in place and the parties controlling voting booths, I have no faith there is a reasonable mechanism for government change. We basically have to hope for a group within these circles to basically have a paradigm shift and see public interest as a worth while pursuit.

Bernie seems great. But I almost see him like Ron Paul. When the primaries began the last election cycle Ron Paul actually won the first three primaries, but the districts and news media reported the wins groundlessly as a win for Mitt Romney, which partly played into the following primaries to fall to Mitt (people voting for the "sure bet") only to have the states attributed to Ron Paul after the fact.

I mean this stuff is so fucking gross it makes me think no matter what I did it would be spun to the opposite of my intent. It seems the best way to win is to not play the game.

I'd really like to hope so as he is my favorite candidate so far. To be honest though I don't see him making the changes necessary to push these groups in the right direction. There's too much at stake for those who are in power to simply let one man change the mechanisms they have in place.

Possible if such direction comes from the top. Remember Obama was too bored to pay attention in his ethics class? He has given all appearances of being too board to give a shit about corruption in government, narional security, corporate and banking as well. Golf is moor funner.

Essentially, its what I mean by a paradigm shift among those already in power.

The main thing is that in the past, most democratizations didn't happen because people rebelled against the oppressive regimes. They happened because some policies were harmful to the elite. Example would be abolishment of serfdom in Russian empire which became harmful to its economy.

Except it's not. From their vantage the public is only an avenue for appointment. For everything else power and control is the best course to improve their quality of life.

I don't agree. The vast majority of politicians come from an already wealthy and high quality of life background. The incentive is power and control.

All of them. Everyone including you and I, because we haven't truly fought back. This will continue to happen and get worse until either the world ends or it comes to armed revolution, and who's to say those two things won't coincide. This truly is a fucking nightmare.

It's hard fighting back against these back door deals that are going on especially since no-one is monitoring or overseeing this. If we don't know who to elect out, or keep from being elected in (which is harder to track if they're new), the status quo will continue.

Just as i think Clinton is one of the people to avoid letting into office...

I hate comments like this. No matter how obvious you may think this is, the average Joe would call you a conspiracy theorist for believing America was controlled by secret powers.

It is a natural state of society. When there are no other countries to surpass, no external or internal enemies, society switches from "we against them" mentality to "me against others" in a sense of wealth acquisition. Same thing hapenned to Roman empire back in ~30 ac and crept on until 300ac when rich exploited the poor to the point where there was no country anymore.

Mentality switch can be seen in post-communist countries, where citizen were traditionally working together to reveal governments lies, distributing banned books etc, and individuals working for the central power for individual perks. This has switched, as people work against each other nowaday in a sense of competiveness in personal wealth, and goverment works somewhat together to undermine citizens power to thwart existing order of power, known as regulated democracy.

I disagree, most people will agree that our politicians are bought and sold. It's not a cabal, it's an auction. If your average Joe had the money, he could buy some politicians too.

National Reconnaissance Office, not National Security Agency -- still representative of the US Intelligence Community mindset, however.
