  1. This, along with their voting records on the Patriot Act, NSA spying bill and NDAA ought to make clear to anyone that we live in a one party global oligarchy. Some have d’s after their names, others have r’s. The only difference is rhetoric, nothing more. They all work for the same corporate powers, not the people.
    The US was hijacked in the coup of 2000, and most Americans slept through it. Those of us who didn’t, could find no avenue for our protests and warnings…..the Internet was still very young.
    After much warning, 911 happened. The warnings were clear, there was no need to build homeland security. Instead, bush went on vacation, and all our civil rights were destroyed for good. NSA Spying bill gave them the right to use military spy equipment on it’s own people and “share” it with local law enforcement. Also, all police stations were militarized at taxpayer expense. Corporate media didn’t say a word.
    Then, Citizens United ruling came from the supreme court, shutting down the voices of the voters for good. As always, corporate media was silent.
    Then, came the grand finality, NDAA. That leaves us one tiny step away from a military government. If the president suspects one of being against the government: a civilian or military person at home or abroad, that person can be swept up and locked away for years by the military with no charges, trials or any due process. NO EVIDENCE…….just suspicion. This section of NDAA was removed by congress, Obama made them put it back, the courts removed it, Obama found a friendly judge. Now, it is there for good. Habeas corpus, a right of man since 1215 is abolished.
    The powers that be wanted Romney. They forgot how much he is despised around the world, and voters were willing to stand in line for 12+ hours to vote against him….in this case, for Obama.
    So, the court just gutted the 1964 voter rights act. Next time, the voters probably won’t be able to vote at all……….
    How much worse does it have to get? As it stands now, Americans have less civil rights than their pets.
