The Money & Media Election Complex

"How They Won"—Part 2

I don’t trust the election boards. They are the choke point of all elections and all the votes must pass through those hands—just like Florida. We are all at the mercy of those with the power to authenticate every election. In Buffalo, the largest city in Erie County, New York, we have 568,000 registered voters and Democrats have a lead over the Republicans, 286,000  to 151,745. Yet somehow they got 148,520 votes for the Teabagger-endorsed Carl Paladino. The results so far indicate that more than 320,000 voters stayed home. We still won our federal seats, but I find it hard to believe. The showing up of those Republicans at the polls is as strange as the World Trade Center on 9/11...   disintegrating into powder?!!! Well, I guess money talks and bullcrap and lies walk.

Just who were the Big Three contenders who supported this brainwashing? Well, I mentioned the persons who did their part, but the other money came from the financial services industry, the energy industry and the health insurance industry, each a co-owner in the media/election complex. Just who owns America and our media corporations? The answer lies on the other side of the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean, and our Republican wannabe leaders want you to keep it that way.

P.S. Stop drinking the Kool-Aid.
