    American opinion is guided by the powerful lobbies, not sense, common sense, or common wisdom. The the media support the source of the money. We will buy anything if it is advertised, even a windshield wiper blade for migrating birds. Germans were like that after WWI and up to the start of WWII. It is why a dictatorial power need no personality to rule in America. We have the epithets, Leader of the Free World, and Only Remaining Superpower. We also have the slogans, My Country, Right or Wrong, and Israel No Matter What. Then there are Post Toasties, and Pop Tarts. Good for you even if they are junk food. Go to the grass roots, stems and leaves, plus the top soil, subsoil, and strata of public opinion. Show them that personal freedom is in their own best interest, not just rising people all over the earth.
