Naturally i have been following American politics since I came here. I am very disillusioned as are many. The one party system serving the corporations that finance their campaigns has not served this country well.
True progressives like D Kucinich have no chance to be elected since democratic fair and free elections are not allowed in the US. Big (consolidated) media create the candidates as well as our culture; they dumb down their public/readers. Public schools make sure real education never reaches high school children: no critical thinking, no knowledge of US - let alone world - history,
no teaching of philosophy...
The country has ignorant graduates,is bankrupt (thanks to neocon policies), freedom and liberties are gone at least on paper (patriot acts NDAA and latest anti-constitutional laws), fascism is here and dictatorship looming.
I am in my 60s, I think I know but I am still living in a world of dreams and hope for the future. Alice in wonderland needs to be re-written! too bad I am no Lewis Carroll...
