How many Register readers can name the 6 candidates runnng for president on the Ohio ballot? Most people cannot even name half of them! And they consider themselves informed and able to pick a president. All they know is ONLY what the voluntary matrix tells them. Four years ago, who heard of Obama? Nobody that I’ve polled ever heard of him 4 years ago when Kerry ran against Junior Bush. But today they know Obama — how is that? Did they go online and research the senators and their voting records? No.

Chuck Baldwin is running for the Constitution Party and Brian Moore is running for the Socialist Party. Bob Barr is a former Republican congressman who says he’s fed up with the corruption in his former party and is running as a Libertarian. Cynthia McKinney, a former Democratic congresswoman, says the same thing. But the point is that nobody has yet to hear about this African-American woman running for president on the Green Party ticket!  Why is that? Because they rely on the mass media, for their information. Mass media is simply a cartel run by five very rich billionaires.

This election, most voters will waste their votes on Mc-Bama and maintain the status quo. American soliders will continue to fight and die for empire in Britain’s former colonies while American jobs are shipped to Communist China, and we’ll go broke.
