True. And once again, you can't read or see these facts spelled out in our spineless media outlets. We live in a (supposely) free country, yet important news is often censored because it might be detrimental to the pols that the media supports. Whatever happened to those journalists who thirsted for a Pulitzer?? Are they really so indoctrinated in our schools of journalism that they enter their professions without any passion for being the eyes and ears of the country?? I'm afraid that we're a lot closer to a tyrannical form of government than we think. When the media quits as our "watch dog", how will the "low-information voter" know when he's being screwed by the same people who are giving him his freebies??

This is a great ultralistic plan except there is the problem with the "remote control" and the "mute" button. There are so many folks who just don't want to know the truth. I have many in my extended family. So sad! I'm old and have greatly benefited from life in this once great country, they will however suffer from their ignorance!

We need someone with the wherewithal to produce commercials that play during the sports events, Jersey Shore type programs and reality shows. These commercials don't even need actors. Use sound bites from political ads. Show the low-information crowd what was actually said and what actually happened. I would support this effort with my dollars.

Hey, the "low-information voters" will never even know they are being screwed because: a) they don't read the newspaper or listen to news, and b) they are too busy waiting to see who will be voted out of the house or off the island, or whatever "reality" show they are watching to know what is going on around them. When our government runs out of our money and low-information voters no longer "get theirs" THEN they might wake up and look around to see what happened.
