America: The country where politicians give the finger to the majority of the citizens

**********************************************************************

Well, at least the comedy's over. We have a one party system, i.e., the Democratic/Republican Party.

Over and over and again the Democratic Congress (what a laugh!) isn't just "Republican Light", it's a dark brew of Cheney/Halliburton and the Bush Royal Family. We elected these clowns to defend our Democratic Republic, but their only concern is power and money.

Oh God, tell us it ain't so! Tell us that aside from a handful of liberal/progressive heroes, the Democratic Party exactly equals the Republican Party. The days of yore when Democrats distanced themselves from Iraq are over forever; since it's now crystal clear the Iraq Oil War (and probably the Iran Oil War to come) is a Democratic/Republican War. It's not just Bush and his fascists & fundamentalists; it's James Carville, the DLC, and Hillary Clinton; it's the MAJORITY of the Democratic Congress. DEMOCRATS want this war just as much as Republicans.

But what about the polls? AMERICANS don't want this war as all the polls unequivocally show. And these are the same Americans who voted out the Republican Congress in order to (a.) impeach Buch & Cheney and (b.) stop this exchange of American blood for Texas energy corporation oil. We're fighting this war to make astronomically rich Texas energy corporations astronomically richer. Blood for oil. Simple.

But, now we know the dems are on the same payroll as the pugs. Every politician is getting pig rich off the Iraq War, dems and pugs alike. Win/win for the Democratic/Republican Party, but lose/lose for the majority of Americans and our heroic, cannon fodder military.

Most of the world wouldn't be putting up with this rape of the public will. They would massively demonstrate or go to the streets or downshift to SOME kind of hardball. But its sitcom time in the land of the free and the home of the brave. We should be outraged beyond belief by this across the board betrayal of the American will.

Maybe this is America's hitting bottom. Maybe we FINALLY realize that effectively all politicians are lapdogs of America's Dictatorship of the Rich. Maybe we FINALLY realize that "politics" is a meaningless game invented by America's Greek God like elites (the 1% or less) to delude Joe and Jane America that they have some (any!) input into the national and international policies of our pseudo constitutional republic.

That certainly would be progress of a sort, wouldn't it? To slammed with the realization that this still is the Middle Ages and the pig, pig rich still control EVERYTHING -- the Democratic/Republican Party included. To snap to the realization that we (the 99%) are paying all the taxes and are fighting and dying in Oil Wars for the Bush Royal Family and corporate America.

But that's a redundant phrase, isn't' it, since "Corporate America" IS America. There is no other America. There's just an army of commode cleaners (that's us!) for the 1% obscenely rich. Paris Hilton comes to mind. And Cheney/Halliburton (a kind of dyspeptic walrus android). You, know those Greek Gods who symbolically if not literally live in the clouds and pay more for their health in an hour than most of us spend on our children's health in a year. They have cars they never drive and affairs in Asian cities on a whim. These people LIVE LIKE GODS, but to do so they need commode cleaners, tax payers (they never pay taxes), and lots and lots for cannon fodder soldiers.

But, hey, this is America. This is the REAL America, not the media pap reality served up by Rupert Murdoch and his intellectually challenged anchors.

In Murdoch/Disney fantasy land, we have an authentic two party system and the Democratic Party answers to its liberal/progressive base. In M/D fantasy land, Democracy rules and the 1% upper class are neighbors with the middle class. In M/D fantasy land, only traitors don't support corporate oil wars and only atheists don't expect the world to go Armageddon-boom in the next week or two. In M/D fantasy land, elections are free and fair and exactly represent the true will of the American people.

Clearly, M/D fantasy land is institutionalized psychosis in which Evil is God.

But, that's what we have the Democratic Party for, right? These hard fought for elected representatives of progressive Americans who are fighting the good fight for as all.

Yeah, right.
