The software code used in...


...gaming machines, at casinos, is regulated and transparent.

The software code used in voting machines is deemed "proprietary", by the corporations that own them, and therefore is not subject to inspection.

Do I have my facts correct?

Chris Hedges on Capitalism’s ‘Sacrifice Zones’



http://billmoyers.com/segment/chris-hedges-on-capitalism%E2%80%99s-%E2%80%98sacrifice-zones%E2%80%99/

Removing voters from the voting rolls,...


...tabulating votes on private machines, and corporate ownership of most of TV and radio.

Why that's a Republican wet dream come true!

Our parents, church, and school...

...all train us to obey authority figures or else we are punished.
We are brainwashed to "fit in".

Our parents treat us not as people but as property when we are young.

Church threatens us with Hell.

I worked at an elementary school and witnessed a kindergarten teacher drag a kid outside and berate him by saying, "All the other kids are behaving so why aren't you". In other words ingraining into this child that he must succumb to peer pressure yet, in a few years, he was taught "just say no" to peer pressure.

"I have no intention of accommodating corporate power ...

...whether it hides behind the mask of Barack Obama or Mitt Romney."

I admire Chris.
