Walt Thiessen and Bill Westmiller discuss early election  surveys, 
government audits reporting billions of "lost" dollars, how  corporations evade 
taxes by strictly following the law, and NSA  incompetence.

The hosts review new surveys indicating that 70% of voters  believe most 
politicians can be bought, using their power to benefit friends and  hurt 
enemies. Looking ahead to the 2016 Presidential race, its a contest between  
Hillary and Rand Paul. Bill suggests they simply cancel the primaries and start 
campaigning now.

Banks don't have enough money in their vaults to cover  their loan risks, 
so they'll have to find $68 billion to avoid being "to big to  fail." The FED 
is Yellen at them. Congress is worried about corporations who  have figured 
out how to legally avoid $2.1 trillion in taxes: they just leave  their 
profits overseas. 

NSA spying has transformed into active  propaganda on social networks, 
particularly in foreign countries. Hundreds of  Homeland Security staff spend 
their time on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube,  spreading false stories and 
deception. Just in case they're still reading  emails, former President Jimmy 
Carter has decided not to use email to talk with  foreign leaders: he writes 
letters and mails them.
