If Your Only Choices Were Romney and Bush, Would You Vote For Bush?

If our major media outlets tried to pretend the Occupy movement wasn't happening while their lavishing attention on the Tea Party, then..."

Would you vote for Bush if your only choices were Romney and Bush? Yes? Or would the "right" and "left" fists of the 1% finally be made clear to you for what they really are? No? Would a "choice" between Bush and Romney still not be the final straw to make you reject the right-and-left paradigm, and vote for someone like Jill Stein instead?

If your immediate answer is "no, I would never vote for Bush under any circumstances," then why would you vote for someone with a worse environmental record, and a worse human rights record than George Bush?

The 1% has pulled the greatest sleight-of-hand trick on us by getting us to accept the unacceptable through Obama, which we never would've tolerated under Bush. And as much as our major media outlets try to put down Obama in favor of Romney, they will never once inform us that Obama's records on human rights and the environment, are already much worse than George Bush's:

"...what if the movement behind Jill Stein is much much bigger than our major media outlets want us to know?

If the unprecedented high voter turn-out against Bush's policies in 2008 happens again in 2012, then Jill Stein will win by a landslide --easy! What bitter irony that the only thing preventing us from defeating the 1% (for REAL this time!) are the Obama apologists who insist that we can't. If braver people like Martin Luther King Jr had adhered to those common held beliefs about what is "unrealistic" and "impossible," they never would've tried.
