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 gamesmanship!

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 to champion.

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 Repukians!

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 below.............Rafe Pilgrim

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...)
