How China Manipulates the Media | Joshua Philipp

Trump to "Get His Fat A$$ Beat": Clinton-Hawker Carville Fat-Shames Doom...

@6:34 "the democrats, in many ways, are kind of like republicans, it really doesn't matter to them who the party nominates because they're going to vote for that guy when it comes around to the Fall, oh, ah, anyway...."

And that's the problem we have in a nutshell, isn't it? Sure the media is not giving us good info on the candidates, sure we live in interesting times, but the bottom line here is that, as Americans, we have a duty to inform ourselves about the candidates, find those of good character who align most closely with our values and vote them into office - NOT to use political parties as an easy button so we don't have to bestir ourselves. We have, gentlemen, the government we deserve. We put them there through our own refusal to attend to our duty to be informed and responsible voters.

What Does Separation of Church and State Mean?

"While our Country remains untainted with the Principles and manners, which are now producing desolation in so many Parts of the World: while she continues Sincere and incapable of insidious and impious Policy: We shall have the Strongest Reason to rejoice in the local destination assigned Us by Providence. But should the People of America, once become capable of that deep simulation towards one another and towards foreign nations, which assumes the Language of Justice and moderation while it is practicing Iniquity and Extravagance; and displays in the most captivating manner the charming Pictures of Candour frankness & sincerity while it is rioting in rapine and Insolence: this Country will be the most miserable Habitation in the World. Because We have no Government armed with Power capable of contending with human Passions unbridled by  morality and Religion. Avarice, Ambition, Revenge or Galantry, would break the strongest Cords of our Constitution as a Whale goes through a Net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious People. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other" ~ John Adams
