“The Best Democracy Money Can Buy”

This was an hour-long documentary about the “Bush Family Fortune”. I didn’t really think there would be any hidden surprises because I had already assumed the rumors were true. Some things in fact did.  For anyone who does not know what the “Bush Family Fortune”  is all about its how they got all their money (George W. Bush, Jeb Bush, etc…) throughout their political careers as well as before and after. Okay, so I’m sure we all know George W. Bush was the United States 43rd president from 2001-2009 yes, he was elected twice. Now Steven Grandison and Greg Palast directed the documentary “The Best Democracy Money Can Buy” and did an excellent job exposing what most of the public already knew about this weird family.  I just find it weird how we have to as a country try to even expose our own president feeling as if he was a “crook” instead of having faith in our leadership. I mean didn’t we the people actually vote for him ? Not even once, but twice! So I’m a little confused on that theory. Wait, I think I remember, that’s right it all began with these votes from Florida.  How can Mr. Bush lose to that state if his own brother  Jeb Bush governs? That is not even a reality! In fact it was and they know it. They could not let that become it of itself so instead they made some excuses and say we counted everyone but x amount of votes, oh and lets say all these black people (because they are just going to vote for Al Gore anyway) are felonies this way they can’t vote! Now that was information I gained from this documentary.

It was magnificent how genius they became to this election. Was it really that serious? Moving along they even matched names of black citizens with someone else in the country who actually had a felony. I never even heard of a felon , trying to vote! Wouldn’t a felon in fact know the law by now to the fact they understand voting is completely out? I do feel it is important to state during this presidency I was 11-19 years old, not the legal age to vote in this country anyway so when he actually was in office I didn’t know how to feel. That all changed when 9/11 happened. I was scared and didn’t why the person who I felt was supposed to protect us didn’t, so I quickly began my distrust because apparently something fishy is going on here. Now with all the complaints of his presidency who actually decided to elect him again? I want this answer. I kind of feel the USA isn’t so honest watching this documentary even as a foreign person would probably feel the same way. Going to war over OIL? Any more shallowness from this Bush guy I could not take!
