Last week alone, anti-Gingrich ads from a Romney ally outspent Gingrich by an 8-to-1 margin on television.The powers behind the thrones of the GOP, often referred to as the One Percent, are suddenly not happy with Gingrich as the front runner. He serves them well delivering their message of "Greed and corruption, good! Working for the good of the middle class, bad!" Newt is a wonderful attack dog savaging anyone with rational ideas that might lift America as a whole on the pretense that it shouldn't cost the rich and powerful even the slightest increase in taxes to run the government which serves mainly the rich and powerful. After all it is the crumbs that fall from their tables that will have to feed the rest of us and Gingrich is too obviously flawed to stand in the spotlight by himself and would be a walk over in the general election should he win the GOP nomination. Let's face it, even Republicans don't like the guy in spite of his being their toadiest of toads. This sideshow illustrates what the Occupy movement has been pointing out. Our political process with unlimited money being used to mislead the public has given rise to a political class that serves the corporatocracy and no one else. A political figure who fails to serve the One Percent effectively will be destroyed in the voter's mind by a barrage of negative campaign advertising that blots out the sun and any message to the contrary. Amazingly coming from the very puppet masters of the GOP that Newt has become wealthy serving, the public will hear two sides of the issue..."Newt Gingrich is not good" and also, "Newt Gingrich is bad".
As our national media continues to intentionally miss the point of the Occupy movement, we get this very strong evidence that the Occupy folks are dead right about what is wrong with our country. We have no real democracy at this point in time. It's all about corporations and CEO's buying the public opinions that best serve their own narrow interests and America as a whole be damned. We're watching the attempted assassination of E Pluribus Unum by the One Percent even as they cannibalize their own. Can we stop this? And I mean by that the destruction of "Government Of the People, By the People, and For the People...Yes!
