A #WalkAway, #Blexit woman has a youtube channel with very witty, informative, creative videos in the manner of South Park. This introductory video is live action - 2 min where she speaks about Obama


"Breaking Free Of The False Left Right Paradigm" is a video about my political transformation... #blexit #walkaway The "false left–right paradigm" is the political theory that members of opposing political parties such as Republican and Democrat deceptively share common interests and goals, as a one body ruling authority over the masses. The two parties act to create divisiveness and influence the general population while keeping control of the political spectrum.

for years NAFTA and the free market were conservative issues..Clinton changed that..now both parties have tremendous backing from wall-street...BOTH
i have always maintained that our media outlets are all owned by business types who are concerned with the bottom line period...our media now push's a lot of leftist crapola i am told (quit following @ 20 years ago)...and guess what people become totally obsessed with the BS they hear on the TV tube..i had always hoped people were smarter than that but many posters on this forum appear to be totally sidetracked by flimsy fringe ideas while losing perspective of who actually runs things lol

Well to some degree that's just necessary for a Democracy to function. There has to be areas where the two sides can agree so they can create a budget and craft useful laws. Hence they are bound to have some principles in common.

I think you are on the right track! Regarding losing perspective of who actually runs things, it's hard to lose perspective when you don't know these things in the first place. Most people don't have the foggiest notion of how things run on this planet.

in 1975 the movie "Network" came out and as dumb as it may sound i think this movie at least dances around the issue...the speech about boardrooms and pie charts and spreadsheets is amazing...


i dont claim to actually KNOW but my reading seems to indicate more than one power group of corporate combines for lack of a better term


it is indeed all about the money which has no morals so to speak..the worlds resources were inventoried years ago and to make a saleable profit with the development of those resources is what makes the world go round..
the ONE incalculable ingredient is mans ingenuity to develop more and better procedures...an example would be uranium being a non-value element at one time..
mans ability to use his mind to harness nature in better and better ways drives real wealth production..
the casino style investment market we have seems to have forgotten that as it confuses wealth with money

If you really want to watch an incredible documentary on this topic, here it is. Damon Vrabel is very matter of fact on this topic. He goes back and sets the table with some history on money and goes from there. It's almost like a college lecture. It's long and when I watch it, I'll break it into a few different segments because it's 2 hours long. But it's an excellent piece. Whomever watches it will learn a few things about who actually runs this planet, their methods and their motives.

Fear, hate and division seem to be the three- legged stool of many political campaigns.
