Lack of viable choices hurting our nation

Staff reports

To the Editor,

“America has a one party system with two right wings.”

 - Gore Vidal 1925-2012

On the 6th of November one thing was for sure: whether you voted for tweedlde or tweedldumb, they were your only choices. All other bonified presidential candidates were carefully excluded and blacklisted not only from the scripted “debates” but not allowed any hint of recognition or participation in any news format.

Not ABC, not Fox, NBC, NPR, YNN and the New York Times, Greenhow News, MSNBC, CNN, nor even Jon Stewart or Stephen Cobert ever gave more than a moments print or air time to anyone except our two cultured buffoons.

There hasn't been this level of censorship since Wilhelm Reich's books were burned on street corners in the 1950's. What we have here is mind control by the omission of information. This is a wonderful thing if you are a multinational corporation or banking institution. This is exactly what evolved in Europe in the 1930's.

There is not a dimes worth of difference between our two parties.

We are cultured, yea, admonished to believe and trust that our so called “two party” system is a wonderful democratic process.

...keep drinking the Kool-Aid.

Our freedoms evaporate with every stroke of the presidential pen. It starts locally when white collar thiefs go free. It continues with every immoral, anti constitutional road block, drone murder and foreign war throughout which our gunslingers, like the nazis, are “just following orders.”
