The government is a gang, with gang mentality. If you don't do what they tell you to do, then they either fine you or imprison you. If you become very wealthy, then you become part of the gang, and not a 'victim'.

I bet he voted for Mitt..The Bush Republic goverment led the USA into an illegal war with Iraq using fear and lies. They then almost bancrupt the USA and europe with corrupt banking by removing regulation and allowing greed to flourish. When ever Republicism and the equivilant in the UK ie Conservatism take over, then the poor become poorer and the rich richer.

It was under Bill Clinton Glass Steagal was rescinded and allowed banks to become hedge funds. Obama waged an illegal and an immoral war on Libya, is doing the same with Syria and Iran, escalated the war in Afghanistan, continued rendition, stripped away your rights by extending the patriot act and also signing the NDAA . Wake up! How liberals justify that I don't know. The lesser of two evils?

Not sure if you're responding to my question or Jimbo Chester directly. If me, then you didn't answer my question. I was asking what makes the war with Iraq illegal. You mention Libya, Syria, Iran, banks, Afghanistan, but not Iraq.

Latest comment: It's sad to see people bickering amongst themselves over perceived wrongs by "that other political party", you know, the one with which they don't agree. Are you blind?? The Republicans AND the Democrats ARE the Oligarchy. We may already be too late in the US. We have two parties who just want to hold on to their power and have already exceeded their Constitutional boundaries.

Koch strategy and funding of the concepts in this video are intended to sell voters on the idea of relinquishing their social security to Wall Street, desegregating the education system, and dismantling the EPA.

"Protecting the rights of the people" LOL! Yeah right... "With out law there can be no freedom" Does any one else think this an oxymoron? With out RIGHTS there is no freedom is a better choice I think because it is almost always govt. that restricts our freedoms and rights by laws. By definition laws are what we can't do, our rights describe what we can. The rest is spot on!
