70. I have had this daydream.....
Pro-corporatist(?) President Obama is re-elected. Not long after, possibly at one of his public forays (if they don't use a "body double"), he pleads (publicly) for asylum. After he is given this by a local jurisdiction (if he is not gunned down by the secret service) he tells America about the real powers that run our world and how if he refused to follow their orders he and his families lives would have been in jeopardy.
Eventually, these corporate masters and their minions are arrested and President Obama serves out the rest of his term as a real Progressive......oh well, we can always dream.
Realistically though, I think things would be much better if FDR had prosecuted the corporate masters that hired Smedley Butler to commit a coup de tat in America.
BTW, why aren't our children taught about this in our public schools?
