Good thing Trump isn't a politician. He's a businessman who wants to run the country. If he didn't offer a freedom of choice, the media and political establishment would not be fighting him to the death like they are trying to.

Unless he's just a useful idiot that Clinton identified as needing "elevation" from the other candidates two months before he even declared.

The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice … you don’t.

You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own, and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought, and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear.

They got you by the balls.

They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying … lobbying, to get what they want … Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want … they don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking.

They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that … that doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests. That’s right. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table and think about how badly they’re getting fucked by a system that threw them overboard 30 fuckin’ years ago. They don’t want that.

You know what they want? They want obedient workers … Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork. And just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it, and now they’re coming for your Social Security money. They want your fuckin’ retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street, and you know something? They’ll get it … they’ll get it all from you sooner or later cause they own this fuckin’ place. It’s a big club and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in The big club.

By the way, it’s the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head with their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table has tilted folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care.

Good honest hard-working people … white collar, blue collar it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on. Good honest hard-working people continue, these are people of modest means … continue to elect these rich cocksuckers who don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t give a fuck about you … they don’t give a fuck about you. They don’t care about you at all … at all … at all, and nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that’s being jammed up their assholes everyday, because the owners of this country know the truth. It’s called the American Dream cause you have to be asleep to believe it …

If the above clip has been deleted, please just search YouTube for George Carlin video clips and it will most likely be re-posted under a slightly different title. Thank you Google for illustrating the truth of what Mr. Carlin says in this video clip–“they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear“. Thank you Google for suppressing the truth and protecting the sacred “intellectual property rights” of whichever corporation supposedly claims to own it. Profit before people. We know what Mr. Carlin would say to you.

George saw what was happening. He tried to wake us up.

There isn't a reason why we cant do away with congress and move to a voting system. Every post office would have a window where US Americans can vote on the important bills, laws, etc. Show you license, and vote.

No lobbyists, no special interesrs, make it treason punishable by death to alter or tamper with the votes.

It would create jobs, and put the power back in to our hands

They're not really doing a very good job of that either.

Careful, this type of over-cynicism often seems directed at people on the right so that they don't go out and vote.
