No matter the outcome of the presidential election, resort to the "lesser-evil" rationale serves only to encourage and ensure more of the same treacherous governance as America's had for the past 12 years under either Republican or Democrat presidents.
The answer to America's mass foreign atrocities, the desecration of our Bill of Rights and the reality of the Security State, is NOT in re-authorizing the treacherous regime of the last four years, who will consider your support a license for more of the same.
Despite the clear voices of such as Chris Hedges and Noam Chomsky, and the Quakers' persistent plea for peace and decent governance -- there are deplorably few amongst the electorate who comprehend that America's treachery feeds upon the baseless obsession that there are but two choices in our need of leadership, and that "our choice" -- no matter how bad, however wretched the government it led -- is better-than "their choice," which is "more evil." Vote for our candidate and spare us and the world greater evil!
Reality #1: After the evidence of the past 12 years -- 8 under a Republican Commander-in-Chief and 4 under a Democrat Commander-in-Chief -- it is time that intelligent and decent citizens awoke to the reality that both have earned our nation the condemnation of history for the jointly administered unjustified slaughter of 6,000 (plus unknowns and unadmitted) of our soldiers and a million (?) others two-seas distant from our coastline, along with the shredding of our Constitution and the reality of our Security State. And trust in this reality: whichever of your two-party hero/savior/lesser-evil actors seduces your support to be crowned CIC in November -- the abuses both foreign and domestic will continue, just as they have under either wretched partisanship for the past 12 years.
Reality #2: Obama will win in November, if for no other good reason than Mittens (all thumbs mentally) will stupidly self-destruct, giving the Dems more than a fair share of the "independents" (actually still of the two-party obsession) along with their own gaggle of the partisan afflicted. This cannot be changed in the next six weeks. So what do intelligent and decent citizen voters do now? Firstly, prepare yourself for four more years of abusive leadership both foreign and domestic. Secondly, register your protest in November by voting for someone decent, that is for someone other than the two-party charade of "realistic choice."
This number of decent voters will help to send a message across the next four years that more of us are on to the treachery, and that there is indeed hope for decent governance in the future if you and I and Chris Hedges and Noam Chomsky and the like get more citizens to see clearly for America's, the World's, and for their Own and for Their Children's future.
Reality #3: We need to shed the two-party con. Vote DECENT.
And you, reader -- let us know -- let everyone know......................
Leaving behind a treacherous government now addicted to perpetual war, its limitlessly greedy and power-lusting masters, as well as the retarded albeit smirky Republicans and their evermore clonish Democrat colleagues, a braindead electorate (more...)
