Appended below is one of the most disgusting and malicious examples of political propaganda ever, or if actually intended and accurately quoted, then the most cowardly example ever of Democrat partisanship.
The proposition is that if Elizabeth Warren were to aspire to the 2016
presidential nomination, then Democrats who provided large contributions to her
successful senatorial election would desert Liz and channel their support to
Hillary Clinton's nomination.
Why? we are impelled to ask. Do these Dems actually
believe that such as a Ted Cruz or a Rand Paul would whomp Liz in a presidential
election? That sounds rather improbable. The more likely (but not stated,
hidden) case is that these Dems, these "major financial"
contributors believe that Hillary would do the "superior" job of advancing
their moneyed interests than would Liz -- and, you know, they're right. But
that's not what Democrats are supposed to be for. "Demos" from the Greek means
"common people," not money-grubbers. So much for that psuedo-partisan
2016 needs to be a contest between Big Money
Greedsters and Real People -- A struggle for more free money for Banksters,
grander license for Frackers, increased domination of genetically engineered
agriculture, more billions for such as the leaden F-35, etc -- All such that the
Republicans would advance -- All counter to a decent minimum wage, improved
quality and availability of healthcare, enhanced and affordable education,
repair of our highways and bridges, re-enactment of Glass Steagall, reform of
income taxation for American corporations dodging via off-shore accounting,
return to higher income tax rates for the billionaires -- All the things
Democrats SHOULD be pursuing -- But not much of which we can depend upon from a
costumed Wall-Street-nodder disguised as a Democrat in a bad hairdo
But there's something the traitorous Dims missed.
Suppose Liz would run as -- for instance -- a Populist? She would get
sufficient contributions to make a lot of noise, perhaps even qualify for
federal funds -- such as Obama passed up in his sellout to Big Money interests.
Maybe she could in fact win -- or maybe not -- but she would get enough votes
split from Hillary's to give the election to -- horrors of horrors! -- the
Liz's Democrat contributor-traitors should jam that
possibility deep up a nostril to connect with a rare brain cell, and ask
themselves: "Hey, wadda bout thet!"
Then there's the propaganda supporting the
propaganda that "Third parties never win." Well, at one time there was a
third party -- or worse -- and it was called the Democratic Party, and in fact
another called the Nazi Party. Nothing more need be said about that, except
that when the PEOPLE catch on to a party leadership that in reality does not
support the people, then that party will indeed be dust. This ex-lifelong
Democrat has already benefited by such a revelation when Lady Hillary Macbeth's
husband gifted our Glass-Steagall protection to Greed Inc.
But getting off the cowardly partisans lacking
integrity -- What should we do in all honesty in our choice to support the
leadership which will best represent and benefit the grand majority of the
American people, which includes with minor exception you and
me? Cop out to our
party's major contributors and pig-headed aparatchiks? Or go for the
gold? Yes, it's rare, but it's precious, and in seeking it we may even preserve
our integrity, our self-respect, the friendship and respect of decent people,
and even win the vote -- WOW! -- what a concept.
I'm not certain whom I'll vote for two years hence.
But I'm certain it will not be for a Republican or Hillary Clinton. Among those
currently proposed, I would choose the Liz option. And unless someone else
comes along who impresses me with more integrity and vigor in representing the
actual best interests of the American PEOPLE and HUMANITY -- I'll be wearing
the Run!Liz!Run! button through the campaign.
In the meantime we should endeavor to stifle such
propaganda and cowardly partisanship as evidenced in the clip
