The Treason of the Senate

Bill Moyers explains who really owns America

America was lost, stolen and sold. All at the same time. And right out from under us.

It was lost when we diverted our attention to the nonsensical; abortion, illegal immigrants, same-sex marriage. It was stolen by our politicians. Who, in turn, sold it to Corporate America. And then we got fat on grease and sugar and drugs. And sleepy. And so we went to sleep.

But then we woke to discover that we were slaves.

We are their slaves, the corporations. And our masters have shackled us by creating a false vision of freedom in exchange for our souls. And we've gleefully followed. We held out our hands and laughed as they hacked them off. Smiling politicians and screaming pundits on radio and television have sold us a steady assembly line of distractions as the real rulers of America raped and pillaged a nation.

Our masters have cut our wages, adopted longer and longer work days, bled our pensions dry, kept us dizzy with media, gadgets, trends, and exhaustion as they showered Washington with cash. As they bought the very people we elected to represent the best for us. They've convinced us that unions are the real villains. They tell us it's the poor who's at fault; they are lazy and shiftless and harming our country, so we fight to destroy entities like ACORN. We happily take part in dismantling our own neighborhoods.

We get our plasma in Hi-Def and our iPhone and our Lexus and then shun the ones who don't. We squabble and demonize each other as our masters pull the strings.

Our masters are the ones that run America. Our masters use the media to speak for them. Our masters are the ones who have destroyed America.

And there is no going back.
