All Dictatorial Societies Produce Bitter People.

Candidate Obama is  right when he describes large segments of our society as bitter.   How can it be otherwise when we  are helpless to redress  our  societal problems?  The news is filled with daily petty and grand larcenies, the murders  for money, the  broken families, kids without two parents.  Ask,  and most will admit that  We, the People, have nothing to say about HOW the President and the Congress, once elected, determine OUR lives.
Our bitterness, provoked by  frustration,  is a normal human trait, especially  when fed by the erroneous declarations  of those in control of the government and the  media , that this kind of system, and how our society is formed by it,  is the only way we have, that this is the price we pay for living in a democratic society.  That’s pure bunk.  We do not have a democratic society. Everyone knows it. 
In addition to the President’s daily propaganda about how well we are doing despite the “depression,”  and the “war, “  the corporate media, their paid  pundits who dominate our airwaves,the “SYSTEM FIRST”  cheerleaders,of the Wills- Hannitys  ilk,  and  the  President’s “boys” in Congress, all cover up  the  broken systems we suffer. Namely, the present forms  of the economy and the political government.
When was the last time WE heard a commentator on TV declare we need a genuine democracy in all matters  which affect our lives?  Is Democracy no longer an American goal?
Consider … No democracy in our corporate work places. No real people empowerment in our civic lives.  We, the People  live to serve the needs of the autocratic corporations which  also control our political system.. The Iraq invasion for oil is one recent example. Did anyone ask  We, the People, if WE wanted to send our kids to die for EXXON, SHELL and MOBILE  corporations??? But both Houses of Congress  agreed with the President that corporate needs for Iraq’s oil was of greater importance than the loss of  our kids’ lives.
The widespread bitterness Obama was  pointing out is a fact of life in corporate- political government America. What to do?  WE can Change this system to one of a genuine democracy in which We, the People, have a direct voice and vote in ALL matters  that affect our lives.
It can be done. The Constitution enables us to legally and peacefully change our society from both the dictatorial  and political organizations we now  are forced to endure, to one in which We, the People have effective control  of  our lives…
