Americans Have Been Fooled For Decades
Most Americans have no idea how much they have been manipulated and influenced to think, feel and vote as they do. All Americans except a for a very few, even realize how far off course American Humanity has strayed. The fact that we Americans were delusional enough to elect an absolute corrupt, megalomaniac, con artist to be our President is evidence enough we have lost our way and perhaps even our minds! It is clear the majority of Americans are fooled and have been conditioned to believe this is the best we can do for ourselves, that this is the way it is and there's little or nothing we can do about it. How is it that we feel this way? To answer this question, we have to break it all down, and you have to start with who actually, literally holds the power. The following is an explanation of why we Americans aren't living in a wonderful, benevolent, prosperous society.
There are three main power structures in America and they are most powerful in this order.
Number One - The Mega Wealthy Corporations and the executives and major shareholders whom own and manage them. Sometimes known as the 1%. They are the world's most powerful group of people. They also own and manage our government, especially the GOP and the overwhelming majority of the news and information media we are constantly subjected to. This group is roughly 800 to 1400 persons and their families.
Number two - Our Government - the 545 persons who make up the three executive branches of our government who are largely owned, influenced and directed by the Mega-Wealthy. (see our article 'Who are the 545')
And Number Three - The Citizens of America who are subject to the wrath, power and greed of the 1% Mega Wealthy and the U.S. Government whom the 1% own and control. Yes, we American citizens are the third most powerful group of people on the planet. We just can't seem to unite and organize to become The most powerful group of people on the planet. We are currently 327,960,750 persons - 250,056,000 whom are of age to vote and 138,847,000 who actually voted in 2016.
For decades, even well over a hundred years the wealthy financial institutions and the development of mega-corporations have controlled the way we think and live. In the late 1930s, then President Franklin Delanore Roosevelt stated in a letter to a friend and confidant, Colonel E. Mandell House; “The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government of the U.S. since the days of Andrew Jackson". Think about this for a moment. The President of the United States of America, in 1938, acknowledged to a friend, that he himself, as president, was beholden to the mega-wealthy of that time. We Americans have been oppressed for well over 100 years. It is embedded in us like a plague. It is so thorough and well organized that even now as I write this article on January 3rd of 2019, 37% of Americans are still supporting the current Trump administration even though he is proven to be a liar, a bully, a racist, a womanizer who cheats on his wife and now quite apparently a TRAITOR! Yes! A Traitor!
In the coming weeks and months, we will continue this revelation of how we have been fooled and continue to be fooled! Through our articles, our blogs, our activist attitude, we will outline with facts, manuscripts, and documents exactly how we have been fooled, why we have been fooled and by whom we have been fooled. It is our belief that you Americans, the real, true and just Americans will understand and become clear and informed like never before. And with this clarity and knowledge, you will select and elect an administration that will fix the ills perpetrated on our society by those who have fooled us to satisfy their greed.
