6. My conclusion exactly.
Edited on Thu Jun-13-13 05:15 AM by Enthusiast
"Despite all the polling that is done, for whatever reason, no one seems to care what most Americans want, let alone what any individual wants."

Now that the internet is widespread, citizens finally have an efficient mechanism for telling the legislators and executive branch what we want.

There can be no mistake, they know exactly what we want. They simply continue on as if they don't know or behave as if we are too dumb to know what is good for us. Either way, it is breach of trust, a betrayal and bordering on an act of treason.

A good example is the trans-Pacific trade deal. No one wants it except the corporate elite. And they do not want it for a good reason or to help the working class. But the President wants "fast track" authority to get it done. This is a clear betrayal. There is simply no justification for it. Any claim that it will help the American worker is a clear lie there for all to see.

DU3 should be on Obama's butt over the trade deal as much as they are the NSA thing. The only possible way to make the Administration responsive is through criticism, not through pampering and defending.

I'm already on the "list" of undesirables so I might say anything. Watch out!
