Well, let’s start with the hack-able voting computers that Americans have been
voting on for the last 50 years – which immediately began delivering some very
odd and unbelievable right wing victories.

After that, we would need to recover our free press which was taken by Operation
Mockingbird when Phil Graham was recruited to enlist the aid of those owners of
our press, networks and publications to create “CIA Journaliststs.”
In the beginning of the operation, force may have been used.
But Phil Graham and his wife Katherine were both members of the Council on Foreign
Relations which called for the creation of the OSS and later for its replacement by the
CIA under Allen Dulles. We don’t actually know how many secret operations were run
out of the CIA – likely hundreds – maybe thousands. But they certainly didn’t support
any notion of democracy anywhere, including in the US.
When Carl Bernstein finally wrote about “CIA&Media” and CIA Journalists in 1976 in
Rolling Stone he identified about 400 of them. His follow up article not too long after-
wards identified an increase to 1200 CIA journalists.
Don’t think that he mentioned Operation Mockingbird in his article, however.
As for the voters, they are victims – but survivors.
Look at the response by the public to “Bernie Sanders launching a political revolution.”
When they heard liberal debate they haven’t heard since FDR, they’ve responded.
And let’s hope they continue to respond, though many avenues for democracy have been
blocked at this point, they are finding ways nonetheless.
Donald Trump represents a real danger not only to Americans but to the world.
His loyalists want a renewal of the Cold War and seem to steadily be working on it with NATO
which pretty much surrounds Russia and they’re working on China, as well.
And don’t let anyone ever tell you that right wing propaganda doesn’t work –
look at the use of the term “climate change” put forth by GOP propagandist Frank Luntz
as he advised W Bush to adopt it.
Global Warming is a term even a third grader can understand.
Climate Change is what you get when you go to Aruba from NYC right now.
