The Day After

By Mike Malloy

One assumes there will be no poisonous radiation to deal with the day after tomorrow's election. But, it is safe to expect the poisonous political atmosphere that begins with a Romney victory will engulf the country in a tsunami of rapacious greed and possible ultra-violence.

Remember the film "The Day After?" It is a fictional account of what might happen the day after a nuclear holocaust. The story centers on a handful of survivors in Kansas. 

Tension rises as radiation levels increase and Americans must find ways to survive against all odds -- physically, mentally and emotionally. Watch the following segment...

So, our "day after" is at hand. Tomorrow's election will set the course of the US for a very long time. And, the day after the election? Who knows? Republicans and their capitalist/fascist owners are planning massive legal challenges to any result that does not give them what they want -- democracy and the voice of the people be damned. They have a plan as to what the "new democracy" will look like. 

Are you ready? Are you aware of what is at stake? Will you vote? Will you turn your back on the process as corrupted as it is? Will your stance be moral as opposed to political?

It will be the end of the experiment that was begun 230 years ago. The new political mantra will be:
 
"Democracy is dead . . . Long live Democracy."

Submitters Bio:

Mike Malloy is a former writer and producer for CNN (1984-87) and CNN-International (2000). His professional experience includes newspaper columnist and editor, writer, rock concert producer and actor. He is the only radio talk show host in America to have received the A.I.R (Achievement in Radio) Award in both Chicago and New York City, the number three and number one radio markets in the country. His radio experience includes the 50,000 watt blow-torches in both the South and the Midwest, respectively WSB-AM in Atlanta and WLS-AM in Chicago, and as one of the original hosts on Air America - a two-year-long association that ended in a massive train wreck. Mike's nationally-syndicated program can now be heard weeknights on affiliates of the Nova M Network and on XM Satellite and Sirius Satellite Radio as well as on live Internet streaming.

It is not difficult to pigeon-hole Malloy politically. Generally speaking, he is a traditional Liberal Democrat doing his part to return the Democratic Party to its Liberal roots.
