I have come to the conclusion that the American government no longer works for the people of America. They have an agenda all their own that is dictated by the Military-Corporate-Industrial-Complex. The sad part is that these once American corporations are now trans-national corporations that have no particular allegiance to the United States. We are run by a military corporacracy. The cities in America are decaying and the World is passing us by. We have no high-speed trains to take the place of the automobile. The skylines of cities overseas put our cities to shame. We are a Superpower because of our military alone. Our industrial capacity is a thing of the past.
The lobbyists own our politicians. If not for their support, their campaign coffers would be barren. They do what they tell them to. Sadly, this all could have been stopped a long time ago. Congress could have acted to enact Campaign Finance Reform that really meant something. Instead we got a watered down version that succeeded in doing nothing to stop corporate money legally bribing our elected officials.
Corporate personhood is a myth. The corporations are responsible to no one except their corporate boards and shareholders and their bottom line is profit, not the security of the United States. Go to Wikipedia and look up the definition of corporate personhood. You will see that our government has been perpetrating one of the largest lies in history.
So celebrate the victory of the Egyptians. Just remember that we have our own variation of dictatorship at home in America. It's going to take a mass education program to educate the average American to where our nation is headed. Do the majority of Americans want world hegemony? Do we want to dominate this planet? Is this what our forefathers planned when they wrote The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution? I don't believe so, and I don't believe Americans want to be embroiled in constant war.
