ownership of the media which, for the sake of financial survival, omits any truth thatis overly critical of its corporate benefactors who pay for the advertising that paysfor the high salaries. Then you have the shows that claim fair and honest reporting. That means, in terms of healthcare reform, the only thing covered is who thinkswho will win. We have a media that keeps us divided. It fuels our divisions. Itallows us to be brainwashed into going against our own best interests, if thoseinterests would conflict with revenues. Whatever we hear, whatever we see,whatever we know is censored for profit.We are a house divided against itself. And we all know that a house dividedagainst itself cannot stand. Divide and conquer. Only we are not being conqueredby some outside force, but by the corporate interests that our union would threaten.
“Every man is equally entitled to protection by law; but when the lawsundertake to add… artificial distinctions, to grant titles, gratuities, and exclusive privileges, to make the rich richer and the potent more powerful,the humble members of society -- the farmers, mechanics, and laborers --who have neither the time nor the means of securing like favors tothemselves, have a right to complain of the injustice of their government.” Andrew Jackson
Had this country only kept the spirit of the Constitution and the intentions of thefounding fathers, we would really be the greatest nation in the world, the UnitedStates of America. But we have so manipulated the Constitution that we havecreated a mutation of the Republic we were meant to have.
“ On every question of construction, let us carry ourselves back to thetime when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested inthe debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.” – Thomas Jefferson
President Obama is fighting to preserve our rights, the unalienable rightsgranted to us by the founding fathers in the Constitution. The right to equal accessto healthcare is a necessary means to the right to life so granted us. However, thisis a war, a war between the powerful corporations that our representatives owetheir positions to, and the media owes its wealth to against the American people,the citizens our country was founded to serve and protect.
"It is a principle that the right to a thing gives a right to the meanswithout which it could not be used, that is to say, that the means followtheir end." --Thomas Jefferson: --Thomas Jefferson: Report on Navigation of the Mississippi, 1792. ME 3:180
While in our ignorance, our reason sleeps, the President does not, for he is theone voice, the one soul fighting to return this nation to its heart, and its people tohealth. If he loses, we lose – note just healthcare, but everything.
