Test: Are elected officials for us or the corporatist criminals?
Text emailed to Vermont US Senators Patrick Leahy and Bernie Sanders:
Who should I report theft of taxpayer dollars to? Should a [State Police helicopter pilot be able to threaten to kill police officers and blow up aircraft at an airport and remain flying]? Should police officers be able to steal Homeland Security tax dollars in overtime not worked and not be punished or have to pay back the money when caught? Should the State Police Commissioner cover this up and not be punished? Should the court system be rigged for revenue collection and retaliation, not justice? Should the US be in a Depression because there are human rights violations, illegal wars of occupation going on in Somalia, Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq? [Video embedded here] Why are US taxpayers paying to be domestically spied on, falsely arrested, terrorized, and falsely imprisoned as political prisoners in America if they exercise legal Free Speech as I have, or for contacting elected officials such as you, redressing grievances? I’ve posted a video interview of a journalist talking about the war spending and world abuse fiasco funded by US taxpayers, and links to what I am talking about. I request that my case be looked into as well as information that I posted in an open letter to you on Opednews.com for you and your staff here:

Text with video:
I ask him a question about 20 seconds in at the NCMR Free Press Event, Minneapolis, Minnesota at the Minneapolis Convention Center June, 2008.
The topics of discussion are Phil Donahue's Documentary, "Body of War":
Should Bush be arrested for being a war criminal and crimes against humanity?
What about Free Speech, a Free Press, the economy, and our youth not be unnecessarily harmed and killed?
-MUST WATCH- Chris Hedges on Obama and the rise of Fascism
Text with video:
Is economic despair the vehicle for totalitarianism?
Plummeting unemployment rates mark this economic crisis around the nation which is resulting in a political crisis on Capitol Hill, as Democrats and the GOP debate the stimulus. Some analysts say that this economic despair is creating a vehicle towards totalitarianism, which was evident during the Great Depression. But during that depression, the nation had strong labor unions and a vibrant independent press. Without those traditional tools, what might we face in the coming years? Chris Hedges is the author of American Fascists: the Christian Right and the War on America, and a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist. He is pessimistic about he says is a growing movement towards fascism in the US.

The US is bankrupt. It can't afford to pay its future bills. Big words can be used, and a big complicated explanation can be given. America consumes horrendously, it produces less and less. Math has struck back.
