They Sell Us A President

Advertising is geared to sell us those things that we really don’t need. And every type of media is dependent on advertising to generate revenue that pays for their operating costs.

In 2008 advertising, via the media, sold us a president. I mean, who was Barak Obama, a junior senator with extremely limited experience and running against seasoned opponents. Obviously, as advertisements sell us the “New” and “Improved” versions of products that actually remain the same, they can sell us a president too. Even as far back as 2008, people were looking for change, but they voted along party lines and change they got was an increased national debt and an increase in domestic and foreign terrorism.

Because of traditional establishment politics two of the candidates who ran against Barak, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, were given the cabinet positions as Secretary of State. The combined failures of these three establishment politicians is a horrible legacy that will be perpetuated if Hillary is elected. As one songwriter has said:

They sell us the President the same way
They sell us our clothes and our cars
They sell us everything from youth to religion
The same time they sell us our wars
I want to know who the men in the shadows are
I want to hear somebody asking them why
They can be counted on to tell us who our enemies are
But they’re never the ones to fight or to die
And there are lives in the balance
There are people under fire
There are children at the cannons
And there is blood on the wire

Voters must, must remember that Barak Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry are responsible for the release of billions of dollars to Iran which is now being used to fund terrorism on a global scale.
