Thanks to Jim Hightower for this gift to the American people today.
The enormity of the deception, the corruption/collusion between our government of elected/selected representatives & Prez is so blatant and corrupt it's difficult for average citizens to grasp, especially when ill-educated, ill-informed, diverted from critical truths daily, and consistantly lied-to! YES, we dare say it: our so-called leaders, including President Obama, are by and large pathological liars/deceivers, and must be so to manipulate the people and serve their 1% corporate/banker/financial-parasite masters - the uber-wealthy and powerful.
The TPP scam is pushed by Obama, supported by RepubliCons, written and negotiated in secret by corporate lobbyists and principles (while advocates were excluded) - The TPP is designed to cement corporate domination, vulture capitalism, and profits above all as sacrosanct.
We hear precious-little in opposition except from the few who still possess a functional moral compass, the integrity and courage to speak-out against this Trojan Horse as they try to bypass the propaganda machine our press, the Fourth Estate, has become, and get the message of truth out to the people. WE must expand our pressure for all reps who will hear, to abandon this scam as a clear and present danger to our national sovereignty among so much else!
FLUSH THE TPP! Flush the liars!
