They say that a nation gets the government that it deserves. If that's the case, our nation that seems to consist of apathetic voters who drown their thought processes in “reality” shows and other idiotic mainstream media offerings is definitely getting what it deserves, corporate owned government! Many people base their voting decisions on the quickie soundbites and surreptitiously corporate backed political ads they see on the evening news programs. They believe that nonsense because it is repeatedly drummed into their thick skulls by a mainstream media that is an integral cog in America’s corporate/government complex.
In the “good old days” when fairness and diverse sources of information were protected by government regulations, basing your vote on information gleaned from TV newscasts wasn't that much of a danger to our democracy. However, these days it's almost guarantees that our choice of any given political candidate or vote on any given issue will be corporate America’s choice. The electeds of BOTH parties created this situation years ago when the Fairness Doctrine was decimated by the Reagan administration and the Clinton administration's Telecommunications Act Of 1996 watered down The Communications Act Of 1934, letting a few mega-corporations own most of the broadcast outlets in the USA. Translation, this is a self-perpetuating mess created by BOTH parties!
The only way that we are going to escape this chicken/egg situation is to get every American to use the internet as a primary source of information about every candidate and every issue. Those of us who routinely use the internet as a primary source of information about our world should educate everyone who uses the mainstream media as their sole source of information. If we can teach our friends and family to use internet tools like Google to crosscheck each and every bit of corporate propaganda that is palmed off as “news” by the mainstream media, we're well on our way to getting our country back!

Have you noticed that there's no one on Talk Radio who speaks for John and Jane Q. Public? I want to change that situation. When I go into the studio and get on the air, I say the things that you've always wanted to say. The big corporate interests have their lobbyists, I want to be your voice. Just think of me as your guy fighting for your interests.
