13. I believe that's because the corporate media and their oligarch/corporate clients
want the people to forget, the messages overt and subliminal to that effect are constant in one form or another.

If the American People were truly empowered with the continuously, hammered home, precious knowledge of "We the People," corporations would lose some or all of their power in running roughshod over the people. Therefor government must be demonized as a disconnected entity from "We the People," as one neocon, corporate supremacist said government should be shrunken until you can drown it in a bathtub.

He knows this would allow corporations more power in controlling the government, via bribery or political intimidation while neutralizing any real governmental representation of the people's best interests.

I believe that's why Boehner couldn't bring him self to read the Preamble of the Constitution; of which he claims to always carry in his pocket and has swore an oath to uphold and defend. Instead he read from the Declaration of Independence which of course was/is a revolutionary document, while calling it the Constitution. One interesting side note, later when I tried to click on the CNN link telecasting that episode, it had be scrubbed.
