10. I have a question but I can't post
I don't know whether I can PM anymore or not, I kind of doubt it.

I've been not participating -- too demoralized and too poor.

Is there an organized effort to pitch this subject to news people like Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann and Cenk Uyger (sp?)?

I know there has been in the past, I just don't have any idea what is going on nowadays.

I'm home on disability nowadays, but before I came home I used to work in a job where we pitched stories to the media. I don't know if I can succeed at this, but I have wanted to at least try for some time now. It is probably more than a little hubristic of me to think I could possibly succeed where I'm sure others are working hard, but I feel like I should try to help in some way, if I can.

So, I had thought about trying to write an article that explains TIA's theory about the six percent theft that's built in to most elections today, which I happen to believe is the case, and which jibes with what I have believed all along. I don't mean to say I saw it as as organized as he does, but I certainly believe now and have believed for some time that any elections the Dems have won since at least 2000 they have won by a much larger margin than was stated, and many elections they lost they actually won. So John Kerry not only won, he won by a lot. And Obama won by a landslide. And the 2010 midterms? I don't believe for a minute that we lost as badly as it seems. If the media is controlled, why on earth should we believe the polls we are told about? I was caught up in an online -- I think it's called a push poll? -- just the other day, about Walker.

I just don't believe the American people are that stupid. But as long as the echo chamber MSM keeps telling us we are, we accept that as truth and hang our heads in shame or grit our teeth in fury at our numskull neighbors. But what if it's all not true?

The lying machine is so organized, and the media is so controlled, and so many of the public grew up believing in a much more truthful media, that it is practically impossible for most of us to keep in mind all the time every day that so much of what we are being told is lies. And if that is true, which I personally believe it to be, then we are being told lies about what we think and believe as well. How else could what is happening be real? It's the only explanation that makes sense to me.

So, to get to my point (sorry about that), is there someone doing that? Packaging this story (I mean TIA's theory of all elections with a built-in six percent theft) in an understandable way and pitching it to our friends in the media?
