"Overseas weapons sales by the United States totaled $66.3 billion last year, or more than three-quarters of the global arms market, valued at $85.3 billion in 2011. Russia was a distant second, with $4.8 billion in deals." (NY Times)
We preach apple pie and flag worship. We practice slaughter and prostitute its means.
An honest question: Why is America's eleven-year-and-counting war in another hemisphere, and with constantly more threatened, NOT a campaign issue of either candidate possibly to be elected president?
Honest question Number 2: NOT a single financial giant who burgled the people's treasure of trillions has been indicted. Again, why is this NOT a campaign issue?
Honest question Number 3: Could it possibly be that the leadership of both major parties are masking America's TWO BIGGEST ISSUES at the instruction of their moneyed masters, who themselves are in league each with the other?
Honest question Number 4: When will the partisan hobbyists of each side discard their cheer-leading roles, open their eyes and minds, and demand ACTUAL accountability, DEMONSTRATED decency, REAL peace, and a SEVERE change in the direction from the mounting degeneration of their indentured government across the past thirty years?
Just asking, but hardly anticipating a plethora of honest and intelligent answers, in fact none from the partisan-poisoned, who -- we can only hope -- will spare us the usual long-discredited and sappy resort to our side is "better than" or "lesser-evil" than their side.
