YES! – A wealthy few have corrupted our gov't & society. We are, like the decline of the Roman Empire, on the verge of collapse.
NO! – We don’t live under an oppressive Corporate Dictatorship that controls most of what we watch, hear, eat, and think.

Positive Ideas:

Re: Rev. Peterson, I believe it's his name. This religious fanatic's words can sadden any woman, mainly a mother. Seems to be this person does not have in mind that his mother, if he ever had one, is a woman. I would suggest he reads the history behind Mother's Day, that may bring some light to his mind and heart.

Re: USA in the 21st Century. It is hard for me to realize the lack of leaders in the political spectrum. We are between the "wall and the sword" for although it is known that the Establishment and the State Department decide the foreign policies (meaning wars and coup d'etats) President Obama is the only choice between the two for he is the less bad between the two. With all the problems that need solution in the USA, seems to be politicians have nothing to do but come up with bad ideas to do away with the little good we have.

The Democrats have not realized that the Republican party has been acting following Machiavelli's ideals, for apparently they have not read "The Prince."

I am part of the 99% so are the military forces used against us. Our Supreme Court is pathetic, we cannot afford to have another Republican to nominate more right radicals to control and corrupt the political system.

Mr. Hartmann, I am with you in your intelligent thinking, too bad we don't have enough minds like yours. Ivonne Garcia, Tampa, FL

More than 1 million people told President Obama that he must stop Shell Oil’s risky Arctic Ocean drilling scheme to no avail.

Call President Obama at (202) 456-1111.

The paltry 3% who thinks we aren't currently controlled, are either delusional, extremely positive thinkers, or right wingers.

Tax cheats stash $2 trillion overseas!

America's biggest companies are playing by their own set of rules. According to a recent report from two major watchdog organizations, our nation's Fortune 500 companies have $2.1 trillion dollars stashed in overseas tax havens.

To put that number in perspective, it's worth noting that the entire federal budget for 2015 was only about $3.8 trillion.
