Both presidential conventions last time were an indication of the depravity of both parties.
At both conventions, they brought issues to the floor for a vote, but ignored the votes! Let me repeat that: They ignored the votes! In fact, at the Democratic convention, the Mayor of Los Angeles was puzzled. The script said that the Ayes had it, but clearly the Nays did. He was instructed simply to read from the script and to ignore the votes. All this on TV!
A similar travesty happened at the Republican convention, with Boehner reading the script. Yes, "script!"
It's no longer an election, it's a pre-written show. And Obama and the others are merely actors paid for by the Billionaires who want to rule the world. They're getting close, but they're not going to win. They're going to hurt a lot of people before they're through, though. And that's a real shame.
I voted for Obama in 2008, but quickly learned how he betrayed his Oath of Office. Ouch! Treason! No "signing statements?" That liar has the presidential record by a factor of 100! He wrote more signing statements than all other presidents combined! Effectively bypassing Congress! Sieg heil!
He signed into law in January 2012 the NDAA making it possible for the military to incarcerate any American without warrant, without charges, without access to an attorney or a phone call, and without a trial.
He signed into law HR 347 which makes it a felony to protest what the government is doing. Free speech is now a felony! And look at all those bills they tried to rush through to quash our freedom on the Internet -- SOPA, PIPA, CISPA, TPP and others. Obama has his Kill List which includes Americans. And he said that the prisoners in Gitmo should stay their indefinitely, even if they are found innocent. Wow! And you voted for Obama in 2012? Please! I didn't do any research in 2008. Dumb, I know. But you've got to be more aware, starting right now.
Both parties are a joke. I would suggest walking away from the entire apparatus and starting something new. Boycott all the corporations who do sneaky things like sending lobbyists to Washington.
