But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    However - that is not the point of the OP. Rather it is to bring to Americans' attention the reality of corporate control over governance in this nation.
    Versus something much worse.....Obama leftwing control.

    Tar Sands oil is heavy gooey stuff, most refineries can't handle it. So the plan is to refine it here in the USA and sell the gasoline to South America. Alot of Countries don't want the increased cancer incidence that refinery's bring so the are buying gasoline ready to go. We are already exporting 400,000 + barrels a day of refined gasoline.

    Isn't that treason? Abetting a corporate takeover of the U.S. Govt.? Quick... check your Constitution.

    I'm totally shocked that two socialists hate the American Way. Just stunned.

    So a plutocracy or an oligarchic republic would provide more 'freedom' than democratic socialism - in your opinion?
