In the News And thus, our true colours reveal. Since Obama was the young newcomer, technically savvy, many of us were hoping that he might support patent and/or copyright reform. In case our story earlier on this subject didn't already tip you off, this certainly will: Obama has sided squarely with the RIAA/MPAA lobby, and backs ACTA. No copyright and/or patent reform for you, American citizens!

Obama is a puppet of the globalists and the central bankers just as Bush was. Sure there are some rather minor differences. Obama lied profusely during the campaign. "Yes we can" meant nothing and intentionally said nothing. That's not a policy.

The media backed Obama because the higher-ups knew he was not for real change, otherwise you probably wounldn't have heard about him.

The establishment isn't going to let anyone go in there and disassemble what has been brewing for decades, including things like ACTA. The media backed Obama during the campaign because they and their partners in the warfare/welfare system in the US, stood to gain a lot. Real change can't happen in the current system. The nationalist delusion will end, but sooner is better.

What is sad is that people vacillate between Democrat and Republican based on what the one in power is doing... forgetting that when either are in power, they do the same damn thing... Democrats just act like it makes them sick to have to do these things and Republicans are excited about doing them. In the end, the same corporate crap happens.

For real change people have to dump both the Republicans and the Democrats. Vote Libertarian or Vote Green. Both parties are anti-corporatism and pro local economies (one way or the other).

"Obama lied profusely during the campaign."

Why specify Obama? "They-all" liked profusely. Sadly, it's not been about voting for the better representative for a long time. It's all about voting for the lesser of two unwanted choices.
