I saw Bill Clinton -- the president who, after signing the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Financial Modernization Act of 1999, declared, "The Glass-Steagall Act is no longer relevant," and he was cheered by Americans whose lives he set up to be ruined.

The parties do differ somewhat on domestic policy. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan promise to bleed white 90% of all Americans and President Obama promised comfier deck chairs for us all on the USA Titanic. Remember though, the President is a proven liar. Foreign policy differences between the two parties are harder to discern. The momentum of empire is something all the Elites can agree upon.

The MainStreamMedia peddles propaganda instead of the news. Name the network commentator who didn't cooperate during the run-up to the war in Iraq. Phil Donahue on MSNBC. He was fired. I could go on with example after example but my word count says I have to wrap this up.

To Sum Up: We are not going to buy more time to stop America's Fascistic drift by voting for Barack Obama. We Are Already Where We Were Afraid We Would Be.

Progressive radio host Mike Malloy once said, "Abandon these sonzabitches. All of them. Let the system collapse."

It would be a perfectly sane response to do so. Because allowing the political system to collapse is not the same thing as allowing the biosphere to collapse. And both Romney and Obama are politically committed to continue the destruction of the planet. So to hell with these people. Abandon Hope All Ye Who Live Here and get to work on something that will help save the Earth. Politicians are useless. People have to do the work.

Derrick Jensen's essays, A New Declaration, and Beyond Hope point the direction we need to go. 

And where we need to go is here. We need to buy the book Deep Green Resistance. And after we're done reading it ... give it to somebody. And buy another copy and give that to someone else. And then we have to do what we can to stop The Dominant Culture from destroying the Earth any way we can.
