Too many stupid people who's minds can be molded to believe anything with simple 30 second ads during commercial breaks on the Kardashians.

If I won the lottery, I bet I could use an ad campaign to successfully get people to believe that carrots are a fruit.

Executive pay for corporations has gone back to pre-recession levels and unemployment hasn't changed much.

Gas prices continue to climb even as more fuel-efficient cars cause demand to fall rapidly.

and of course, we have fat people, cancer, and way too many loud christians (not saying you're all bad, just saying the loud ones need to shut the fuck up)

you were great up until that last sentence.

but we'll ignore that, everyone has their opinion :)

so anyway, why do you think ron paul is not going to be president? everyone i ever have met and talked politics have said what he is saying about the government but nobody will vote for him, you know why? because of the electorate, because of the media. the media has already won this election for obama. its ridiculous, how can a man who has said everything correctly and has actions to stand behind his words not be considered as a potential president?

I wouldn't quite say the media has won it for Obama. Like I said, money and advertisements are really all that matter. From all the polls I've looked at, Obama was a surefire win, but as Romney throws more and more money into attack ads, his popularity has gone down in all the swing states he previously had locked in.

And yeah, the Electorate is crap. Originally, 200 years ago, I think it may have been a good idea (the whole idea that the general population wouldn't be educated enough to make that decision, I mean) but today, it's so much easier for voters to get information on the candidates. Personally, I'd like a direct election system where all the votes in a state aren't clumped (as in, every vote is counted, so Democrats in Texas and Republicans in California actually have a reason to vote) and we go to a top-two primary system, instead of the party nominee system we have.

Also, we need to get money out of politics, because otherwise this system won't fix shit.

i hear ya man. glad to see another likeminded individual. and i know there are tons more but we need to change something before all of our rights are taken away. the principles this country was founded on are long gone, yes i know that times have changed and some rules dont apply any longer, however the foundations should still be the same or else we will turn right into what we dont want to become

The average price for a gallon of regular gasoline in the country fell 14.6 cents to $3.478 in the last two weeks, due to sliding crude oil prices on fears about the European economy, the Lundberg Survey showed.

Yeah, right now they're down, but I'm just talking in general, they've gone up, and they will go back up.

Jobs are outsourced because it costs too much money to conduct business in America. One of the main reasons it costs so much is because there are way too many government regulations. The government is too big.

Big companies become so big because they lobby with legislators and get competitive benefits and subsidies through public policy. They claim they want policy passed for "the environment" or to help the consumers when in fact they just want to get ahead. The government is too big.
