The Democrat, as evidenced by their postings here, seem to be very easily influenced by the mass media. They often believe what's dished out to them without thought or question.


If the media says it, the Democrat repeats it.

Good Lord people..wake up.

Both sides are pushing a 'global community'. The right do it from one end and the left are doing it from another.
The end result is the same..globalization.

And the few countries that aren't playing are seen as our enemies.

Libertarians, like the original marxists, want to see the state eventually wither away - they just have a very different idea of how that could happen.

Why would Republicans support these ideas? Yet Rs take a lot of money from the Kochs and introduce legislation that the Kochs write (see ALEC).

Ds don't take money from the Kochs, nor do they introduce legislation for them.
No, they take money from George Soros, Tom Steyer, Michael Bloomberg, Poloma, Renaissance, Goldman, et. al.

Steyer and Goldman are ready to go with their carbon tax bubble that promises be the next greatest transfer of wealth from working Americans to the wealthy in world history.

If you liked the 2009 financial crisis and the hundreds of billions given away to the people that caused it, you'll love what the Democrats-Goldman have planned for their carbon-credit scheme.

So you admit that you believe the MSM without thought or question. Putin only wished he had that kind of control over some very easily influenced Americans.


You got Trump on the membrane too.

This thread has so much memory loss flying around in it that some of you should seek medical attention.

Free Trade has been pushed by both parties for a long time.

NAFTA (guess what the FT in that acronym stands for OP??) was signed by Bill Clinton.

Then you have the TPP....which alzheimers seems to have struck again for the forum posters not recalling whom was all in favor of that.

Now suddenly we have this absolute joke of a thread about how NOW the Koch bros are trying to get dems on board....um...they've been on board for 20 years, the R's for even longer.

That's why many voting for Trump these days call themselves independent.

The mainstream left and right are BOTH "controlled opposition."

Absolutely. One big propaganda machine that tells you how to feel about issues and the other side.

My fear though is that I see them moving towards promoting violence.

The American left was the traditional home of anti-globalization sentiment, up to and including the 1999 Seattle WTO riots. Clinton's signing of NAFTA was and is hugely controversial on the left.

TPP was occurring during Obama's second term, and the article in the OP refers to events that happened in 2007. This article is not reporting current events; it is an expose of what happened in the past.
