It is easy to be skeptical.

Virtually all of our politicians are corrupt. See this, this and this.

The giant banks are running the show.

The healthcare bill being rammed through Congress "is just another bailout of the financial system", and law school professors say that it is unconstitutional.

America is on a permanent war footing, when the people (and soldiers) are sick of war.

Top scientists, economists and environmentalists all say that cap and trade being pushed through in American and around the world is a scam which won't significantly reduce C02 emissions, and will only help in making the financial players who crashed the economy even more wealthy.
