The Real Reality
November 23, 2011
Here is a quote from an article in Al Jazeera, that says all that needs be said. Smoke and mirrors, that is about the crux of our politics today.
“The point is that the American people are being lied to about the deficit and their choices for fixing it (or not fixing it). And this dishonest campaign is being led by people with a long-standing animus towards the social safety net, who are seizing this moment of confusion to push through something without the permission of the people. This bait-and-switch is happening because financial and political elites insist on demanding "sacrifice" from ordinary people in order to preserve an unsustainable financial system, not an unsustainable debt.”
