And to the republic for which it no longer stands

The corporate establishment’s degree of media control has sufficiently and ignorantly relieved and excused those people responsible for our current ecomalaise. Hence, crazies surfaced politically and deceitfully captured the public’s discontent, driving that discontent to fool most Americans into justifying meanness and diminishing the understanding of others’ unfortunate plight.

This creates the foundation for the plutocrats to institutionalize the increasing wealth gap, necessitating even larger majorities in Congress to correct.

With only 11% of young people voting this puts things in perspective.It seems they don't really care. If they would have voted we would have had a different outcome. When I was 18 I couldn't vote and,was sent half way around the world to fight a war I did not believe in, I haven't missed an eletion since. The youth of america will suffer the consequences of thier decision. They will miss out on a progresive nation that is more inclusive of ALL of us,not a 1984 type scenario were, "War is peace,freedom is slavery, ignorance is stregth." It seems tea baggers are using George Orwells 1984 as their play book."The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history."
