Washington D.C. - Just moments after the polls closed in California, and while an entire plane worth of overseas service members absentee ballots went down without being counted, millions of Americans celebrated the auctioning off of the presidency for a second term, giving us another four years of Big Banker policies.

President Obama won his first four years on the backs of lies, lies that the American people continue to embrace despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. Other's are blinded by party politics to call him out for his lies, with the media being equally as culpable by covering up, not reporting, or simply going by the official story rather than looking into what they're told to find out if any or none of it is true, as is the case with 'fast and furious,' U.S. drone surveillance, NDAA and many other issues that should have been important to the health of the nation.

Not that Romney was the better choice or that there was a real deference between them, they both had markedly the same policies when it comes to health care, they both intend to illegally attack Iran, and would ultimately keep us in a state of perpetual warfare for as long as the coffers will allow.

So does really matter who won? They're both bought and paid for by the same corporations.

Big foreign national banks have seized our economy, we are now dominated by overgrown defense contractor, private prisons, and big pharma, with seemingly no hope for escape.

It does matter when the puppet in power isn't being called out on the issues he's being paid not to talk about or to move in opposition to the public good on.

Call it campaign finance, call it lobbying, I call it bribery.

Obama did come through with one promise though, he promised us Hope and Change and he delivered he has brought us plenty of change; however, it was not the change we were all hoping for, was it.
