Subject: RE: BS: Disaster for the Democrats?
You should probably watch the entire Lessig video, Jack. It's about a great deal more than corn syrup, and it describes the USA's governmental problem perfectly. It will only take 18 minutues of your life to watch the whole video.

(I am not attacking YOU personally in making this post, Jack. Okay? I'm discussing an interesting video that Stilly linked to, and suggesting it's worth watching. That's my concern. I would like as many people to watch that video as possibly can. That video explains exactly why and how your goverment is NOT representing the people any longer, but is representing its primary funding sources who are most definitely NOT "the people"...they are a consortium of major corporations and major banks who have common interests: dergegulation, maintenance of tariffs, maintenance of subsidies to certain agricultural and other industries, maximization of their profits, control of ongoing legislation in Congress. You have "the best government money can buy", regardless of who is put in office.)
