Hey all... Haven't posted here in awhile, just wanted to get some opinions. Is there a difference anymore between any of the politicians. Democrats, republicans, liberals, conservatives? Or is it possible that this is all a shell game that is designed to separate people and make them fight amongst themselves while the future of all is stolen from under our noses in all the distraction. I know that most of us here will identify as, and rightly so, conservatives. And we have a handful of politicians who say all the right things, but in truth, are any of the worth a damn? I personally am beyond a point of believing anything that any of them have to say. I believe that the majority of what happens in this world is not decided by governments, but corporate interests who decide the world's future based on profit margins. Here's a clue from a website that someone posted on another forum I frequent earlier today. Corporate Media Ownership The Project Censored team researched the board members of 10 major media organizations from newspaper to television to radio. Of these ten organizations, we found there are 118 people who sit on 288 different American and international corporate boards proving a close on-going interlock between big media and corporate America. We found media directors who also were former Senators or Representatives in the House such as Sam Nunn (Disney) and William Cohen (Viacom). Board members served at the FCC such as William Kennard (New York Times) and Dennis FitzSimmons (Tribune Company) showing revolving door relationships with big media and U.S. government officials. These ten big media organizations are the main source of news for most Americans. Their corporate ties require us to continually scrutinize the quality of their news for bias. Disney owns ABC so we wonder how the board of Disney reacts to negative news about their board of directors friends such as Halliburton or Boeing. We see board members with connections to Ford, Kraft, and Kimberly-Clark who employ tens of thousands of Americans. Is it possible that the U.S. workforce receives only the corporate news private companies want them to hear? Do we collectively realize that working people in the U.S. have longer hours, lower pay and fewer benefits than their foreign counterparts? If these companies control the media, they control the dissemination of news turning the First Amendment on its head by protecting corporate interests over people.
