This day and age it is hard not to notice everything that happens around us. It is however easy to simply dismiss things we hear or see, without putting much thought into it all. I am talking about news not covered by main stream media(MSM) outlets. A lot of people view sites around the internet as having a political agenda. And yes there are many out there that do have an agenda, but with those there are many that are not afraid to cover subjects our main stream will not dare to cover.
If you look into main stream media these days you will notice one huge similarity. They are controlled and run by corporations. Very little actual news is carried by these media outlets anymore. It is usually things carried over from the previous day and looked into with so called “more detail”. The only problem with this is the fact that these people have lost their “balls”. And like any neuter they tend to be soft and unable to run with their own stories. They are either totally left or totally right. I find this very hard to believe, as the real American public is neither.
In the past few years these MSM outlets have been scrambling to help their dying media empires. By either being more right or more left. This of course forces the majority of people to look else where. The trust is just not with these huge corporations any more. And why should they be? Like most politicians they only care once in a while. A politician only when a vote is about to take place. Corporations, only when they see profits sinking faster than the hopes and dreams of the American public.
You can see these people scrambling to catch up with putting a majority of there news online. Why because right now this is controlled by the other media outlets. Why is this not because they advertise, but because they are not afraid to tell the truth about certain stories and political figures. These stories are not just made up or full of speculation. They are always well written and as truthful as the writer can find. They do show opinion at times, which is what most writers tend to add when facts run low. This is not at all bad, as peoples opinions should be valued and looked into with an open mind.
I wrote a while ago that I am open minded to everything, but a closed mind. I still feel this way, but the more we delve into political issues the more and more peoples minds are closing. This is where a persons mind should be most open to the differences in every person. It is hard to imagine where we would be without people having an open mind about other peoples lives. We would be a hell of a lot further in the gutter if this were so.
While the MSM, politicians, and most people may be controlled by this fake left/right paradigm. There are those of us sitting in the middle wanting real change. Something we can really dig our hands into and support with all of our weight. Throughout the years we have sat here waiting for a real candidate. After 8 years of Clinton we wanted change. We get Bush, after his 8 years, we get Obama. While a lot of people think this all well and great. It is not, not really. This is why, if you actually take a look at the majority of their policies. There is no real change between the three. I stop at these three, because this is where I was raised and grew up following in the big political game. When I look into the past presidents I grow even more frustrated with policies they have passed or are trying to pass.
All these policies look to grant extra power to the government, while stomping on individual freedoms we all want to enjoy or need to enjoy. The government is in place not to care for the people, but to care about the people. If given the opportunity people can and will take care of themselves. As any good parent knows there is a time where people must go out on their own and make a name for themselves.
If given this opportunity, people can and will become great people. Here in lies the problem. A lot of people in power do not fear much, but they do fear losing grip of this power they wield over others. It is no huge conspiracy to see that any person in power throughout history, feared nothing more than losing this power. To think for a minute that we have evolved that much more over people of the past is a fallacy as big as thinking the Federal (Private) Reserve is actually in place to help the people of this country.
All I can really say is take a look at who you are voting for each time you walk up to the polls. I supported Obama, because I thought he would bring in real change. When he appointed mostly Wall Street big wigs to run his administration I lost all hope in this man. For one the people did not create this monumental financial mess. It were those people Obama surrounded himself with that did this. He did the same thing every politician in history has done. Allied himself with those with money and power. All the while stomping on the rights and freedoms of the average American.
What started out with Clinton and became a huge debacle with Bush, has turned into Obama’s mess. He is not doing anything to clean the mess up. He is looking to push bills that will do nothing for the average person, but drive them further into debt. Pushing bills that dictate his views on the people. Most people did not vote for Obama because of his views on healthcare. They voted for him because they wanted out of these wars. They wanted out of the Patriot Act. And even more because the Republican’s were just plain ignorant to the wants and needs of the people. Now it is shifting yet again, but to where?
