So, lemmi, is there anyone who still thinks WE ARE governing ourselves?

We are being led by the media which enunciates for us the policies we are to shun, and which ones to embrace. We are receiving enough "Free Bread and Circuses" (Government benefits and nine hours per day of electronic media entertainment) to keep our attention sufficiently diverted. Even Cesema Street has a political agenda!
If 70% of elegible voters ever went to the polls in America, the earth would probably go into a new orbit!
