try to catch the deluge in a paper cup

America needs a second party

I probably disagree with about ninety percent of Alex Jones' politics, but I like him, at least in this video. I mostly don't agree with libertarians, but I usually understand them and why they say the things they do. Besides, except for the global warming thing and the eugenics thing, this guy has a point about the real tyranny being the power behind the throne.

It's not Glenn Beck or the Republicans or the President--the "mid-level nobodys--and a dead President like Woodrow Wilson"--who are at fault. I really hope he's wrong, but I'm thinking that maybe the actual owners of the fault are waaay beyond politics, sitting somewhere safe and pulling all our strings and laughing at us.

peacey, you should watch this, because I think you'll like this guy, also.

(I had originally deleted this post because I thought I was being too melodramatic. After watching the video again, I'm not so sure).

ETA: Apparently Alex Jones is a 9-11 Truther. Which doesn't quite invalidate the point about corporate control of government, but it doesn't exactly make him a credible authority, either.
