The Sleeping Electorate And The Government Illusion
Every year Americans make a pilgrimage to Washington DC to marvel at statues, historic re-enactments, and to reminisce on the over blown accomplishments of our public leaders in office.

When President Obama tells a TV audience on the John Stewart Show that the IRS did not cause a scandal despite evidence to the contrary, the lie reassures the simple minds. When the president blatantly defies the US Constitution and there is no response from a politicized Justice Department you have a compromised government from within.
Serving up the lie
When a corrupt government that refuses to exercise fisc
