They teach us patriotism in school and we believe WE ACTUALLY HAVE A SAY.
People were protesting COSTLY Iraq war when politician said "people have a say only during elections" - it didn't seem fair because WE were paying for this war, but well, cynical as it sounded,it might have been true.
but 2012 election was a proof that American people can choose their president ONLY from approved candidates. if they vote for someone not approved their vote IN OUR DEMOCRATIC ELECTION is ignored.
"our" corporate media manipulate news so we accept their side of the story as real.
here is a video reiewing media bias of Ron Paul--but please remember. It is not about Ron Paul. It is about American people whose voice is ignored.
