55 Days To Go. . .

November 2nd Will Be - If Nothing Else - Historical.

The finalization of one-party-power-of-the-few, (Pax Americana Empire,)
                          - or -
The the classic two-party-let's-hash-it-out-publicly, (Constitutional Democracy.)

What bothers me, and a lot of other people, is which ever one the American voters choose, Empire or Democracy, they both will have, as president, a member of Yale's "Skull & Bones" not-so-secret-society.  They both will have, as president, a member of "the-few", the top 2% economic class.  They both will have, as president, a man who said "Even knowing what we know now, I would still have voted for the invasion of Iraq."  We will have, as president, a career professional politician that is bound by powerful corporate money and favor.

So. . .  How will America will be different under these two men?  (Read on and I'll explain.)

17.  Increasing consolidated corporate control of our media
