It makes no difference whether Obama or Romney takes charge. Both major parties are in lockstep on all issues mattering most. 

Corporate empowerment, serving America's 1%, cracking down on resisters, and imperial dominance top their list. Hell hath no fury like an out-of-control hegemon. If analyzed on a couch, it would be called sociopathic or worse.

A Washington Post Special Report discussed America's permanent war agenda. A previous article discussed Obama's Disposition Matrix. It called it elevating Murder, Inc. to a higher level.

Anyone can be targeted anywhere in the world for any reason or none at all. Obama has final kill list authority. John Brennan is his counterterrorism maestro of murder. His "playbook" makes up rules as he writes them.

He designates kill targets. He calls it a strategy to persist 'till the end of time. Last August he said:

"What we're trying to do right now is to have a set of standards, a set of criteria, and have a decision-making process that will govern our counterterrorism actions - we're talking about direct action, lethal action - so that irrespective of the venue where they're taking place, we have a high confidence that they're being done for the right reasons in the right way."

 

In other words, kill because we say so. No further explanation. No mention of rule of law principles. Right, of course, is might, whether or not legal, moral and ethical.

In his journey into the "Heart of Darkness," Joseph Conrad wrote:

"one comes to hate those savages....hate them to the death....Exterminate all the brutes!" Kill orders target anyone challenging US hegemony. Targeted killing more than ever is US policy.
