Our Political Choices

Are you a free market capitalist that thinks public health care and socialized medicine are frightening? Do you think Obama is leading us down a path of destruction? Then ask yourself, why is it that in fact Obama is dragging his feet on the issue, almost like he's not really all that interested in providing public care? Glenn Greenwald explains some of these things here.

Likewise Bill Moyers was on Bill Maher discussing the same thing. Do we really have an actual choice when we decide between a Republican and a Democrat.

I've quoted Goebbels before and I'm doing it again. In the media successful propaganda must offer an "ostensible diversity that masks an actual uniformity." That's American media and government as I see it.
