Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has presided over the Senate for the past four years and we’ve just learned today that his current Lame Duck session is “RIGGED.” Color me surprised!

A hot mic picked up Senator Michael Bennet’s words… “It’s all rigged. The whole conversation is rigged. The fact that we don’t get to a discussion before the break about what we’re going to do in the lame duck. It’s just rigged.”

Welcome to our world Senator Bennet. We’ve known for quite a while that our government apparatus is rigged.

Take for example, the Food Safety Bill which is designed to take over our food supply and grow government by adding 17,000 more employees. It passed in the Senate today – against the will of the American people, and is sure to pass the House before the end of the year. Why does our government want to take over our food supply? Because they’ve already co-opted Monsanto and the Food Takeover Bill seals the deal.

The government organization chart illustrates that the position of ‘Office of Foods Deputy Commissioner’ is Michael Taylor, who was appointed to this position by President Obama. Mr. Taylor was the Vice President for Public Policy at Monsanto. How cozy is that?

The incestuous relationship between our government and corporations does not represent America’s free-market system. It’s Socialism straight up. Banks, food, healthcare, home mortgage loans, student loans, GM, AIG… the list goes on and on.

Clear thinking Americans have learned that all of it is “rigged” and it warms our hearts to see that there’s a Senator who is catching on and who actually said it out loud even though he didn’t realize his words were being picked up by the microphone.

We yearn to hear other Senators and Congressmen speak the truth… at a microphone that they know is on.
