FORTUNE – When we learned that employees of Goldman Sachs, a group that overwhelmingly supported Barack Obama in 2008, shifted their allegiances to Mitt Romney this election, many saw it as a sign that the President had alienated the investment bank.

From Welfare to Warfare, the United States of America has the most deceived population in the history of humanity.
It is called the American dream because you’ve got to be asleep to believe it. Meanwhile, truth and reality are ridiculed, opposed and then accepted before they are beaten to death.

The problem is, not many Americans actually wake up.
