You might know some people who thought the USSR was communist doctrine in action. You might be a person who thinks the United States is a moral democratic nation even though it is a Republic in which people do not vote in the President, as directly as people would like to believe. Even when a President takes office he has to carry through decisions of the previous administration and has little more influence than a talking head on TV. His advisory staff and the bureaucrats can keep even a President with Alzheimer's under their thumb to some extent. That was not easy to do and Reagan acted as an individual more than most because of it. You might recall Nancy consulted the astrologer about decisions including when to go out or how to dress.
Have you read The End of History and The Last Man? If you have not read it or do not understand what it says - you do not deserve the right to vote. In fact your vote will counteract a good vote by a person who has a decent chance of making an informed decision. That is why Plato felt democracy dumbed down government. That book says Christianity and other absolute religions are tools for social engineering and have been for almost all of recorded history. That is the truth and the person who wrote it should know. Francis Fukayama was a top US Policy Manager or social engineer, He was moved up the ladder to the Rand Corporation, and you might benefit from understanding their Delphi Technique. Once you grasp that start going down the NeuroLinguistic and Memetic rabbit hole until you are certain you have cleansed your mind of all outside influences on the thinking process that varies from a well considered moral path - you might wish to live.
The Carnegie Endowment people have a similar author who I have only peeked into the book he wrote. Maybe you will read it a little more than I have and start to see just how much America is actually an immoral historical freak show just like you can see in Gangs of New York or by reading General Smedley Butler. Don't forget Eisenhower's famous Military-Industrial Complex, either.

I believe you will find a great deal of truth in this book. You will find you have been exploited (his words) by the American myth and creed which is not anywhere close to reality. He may have a bias against the Republican Party but the facts are stated and as far as I am concerned the Democrats (Clinton thanked Fukayama for the same management of a religio-nation state) are similarly unable to develop a platform to address the future and overcome the lies this country truly is based upon.
Here are three informed people expressing their opinion from three centuries of the existence of the USA. You should make certain you know what they are saying before you pass judgement about most any thing you presently think.
"The U.S.A. is not run by its would-be 'democratic' government. All the latter can do is try to adjust to the initiatives already taken by [the] great corporations. Nothing can be more pathetic than the role that has been played by the President of the United States, whose power is approximately zero. Nevertheless, the news media and most over-thirty-years-of-age U.S.A. citizens carry on as if the president had supreme power." - Bucky Fuller
“I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country.
As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.” - President Abraham Lincoln, 1865
"It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am... The idea that I meant to convey, was, that I did not believe that the Lodges of Free Masons in this Country had, as Societies, endeavoured to propagate the diabolical tenets of the first, or pernicious principles of the latter (if they are susceptible of separation). That Individuals of them may have done it, or that the founder, or instrument employed to found, the Democratic Societies in the United States, may have had these objects; and actually had a separation of the People from their Government in view, is too evident to be questioned." The Writings of George Washington from the Original Manuscript Sources, 1745-1799. John C. Fitzpatrick, Editor. Mount Vernon, October 24, 1798
Hakim Subani and many other people like myself are getting the message out which people like Eisenhower have openly stated - and greed is still in control because people are told they need jobs - which is certainly no longer true if it ever was. Truman gave the Russians a whole air force just before the start of the Cold War. As Sutton found out there have been deals and Russia was part of many sides to these deals since it started the democratization of Europe in the mid 19th Century shortly after helping the US fend off the British Naval and land forces about to invade and pick up the pieces.
"Antony Sutton has been persecuted but never prosecuted for his research and subsequent publishing of his findings. His mainstream career was shattered by his devotion towards uncovering the truth. In 1968, his Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development was published by The Hoover Institute at Stanford University. Sutton showed how the Soviet state's technological and manufacturing base, which was then engaged in supplying the North Vietnamese the armaments and supplies to kill and wound American soldiers, was built by US firms and mostly paid for by the US taxpayers. From their largest steel and iron plant, to automobile manufacturing equipment, to precision ball-bearings and computers, basically the majority of the Soviet's large industrial enterprises had been built with the United States help or technical assistance.
Professor Richard Pipes of Harvard said in his book, Survival Is Not Enough: Soviet Realities and America's Future (Simon & Schuster;1984): "In his three-volume detailed account of Soviet Purchases of Western Equipment and Technology . . . [Antony] Sutton comes to conclusions that are uncomfortable for many businessmen and economists. For this reason his work tends to be either dismissed out of hand as 'extreme' or, more often, simply ignored."
The report was too much and Sutton's career as a well-paid member of the academic establishment was under attack and he was told that he "would not survive".
His work led him to more questions than answers. "Why had the US built-up it's enemy? Why did the US build-up the Soviet Union, while we also transferred technology to Hitler's Germany? Why does Washington want to conceal these facts?"
Sutton, following his leads, proceeded to research and write his three outstanding books on Wall Street, FDR, the Rise of Hitler, and The Bolshevik Revolution. Then, someone sent Antony a membership list of Skull and Bones and "a picture jumped out". And what a picture! A multigenerational foreign-based secret society with fingers in all kinds of pies and roots going back to 'Illuminati' influences in 1830's Germany."
