    you MUST take one of the candidates who forced you to pay for the Wall Street bailout.

    "The two parties should be
    almost identical, so that
    the American people can
    'throw the rascals out'
    at any election without
    leading to any profound or
    extensive shifts in policy."
    -Carol Quigley

    There's a big difference between positive thinking and the brainwashing dished out by the likes of Tony Robbins, or the hot-wired evangelical nutcase preachers earning millions from their superchurches. Brainwashing has brought America to its knees; brainwashing that starts in Washington and trickles down through the masses. "Socialism" and "Liberalism" are both dirty words in this country, yet both stand for 'more for the people, and less for the powerful'. To persuade ordinary people that it's wrong, takes powerful brainwashing over a long period.
