America is -- make that Americans are -- in trouble both here
and around the world. But few are interested in our
real problems, their actual
causes and their effective,
just and (dare I say
it?) moral correction once the electioneering begins
Summarily put, our President answers to the Oligarchy (as has
every president for the past thirty-odd years) and our Congress answers to
interests Other than to those of the People. One might even hazard that any
expectation to the contrary would nowadays be abjectly naive.
It would seem that only foreigners comprehend this. Ninety
percent of the rest of the world doesn't like us anymore. (Oh yeah, I know:
"Whut do dey know enyways!")
American unipolarity does/will not work. Just look what we've
done in the Middle East for the past 24 years. No one else except the Zionists
and the Saudi royals approve, notwithstanding that enigmatically (and perhaps
complicitly?) fifteen of the nineteen 911 perps named were Saudis.
Obama doesn't have the sense or perhaps the political morality
to know -- and didn't profit from Bushido Banzai's bloody fiasco -- that you
don't keep "boots on the ground" against people who chased out Alexander the
Great, several varieties of Asian hordes, the Brits, the Russians, and now it's
the U.S. turn in line.
"Our" president has sold out his own people to Big Money.
Although their corporations have been fined billions for their crimes, not one
of the 2007/8 bankster wrecking crew has gone to jail. Reagan, of all people,
sent hundreds to jail for the relatively piddling mortgage scandals in the
The rest of the world is on to the Americans. Only the
Americans don't know what's happened to themselves.
And now we prepare for the battle of the "lesser-evils" in
2016, with Lady Hillary Macbeth -- if we're to believe the recent press reports
-- already the favorite of 70-odd (indeed!) percent of the Dimocrats, and
slathering (despite her contrived demeanor to the contrary) to run against one
or the other Repukian flat-earther financed and directed by, and beholden
to such as the Koch Bros and their political brethren, as endorsed by our
Supremes who have pronounced that corporations are people (as Webster rolls in
his grave, or does he laugh?)
If all this were not so pathetic and wretched, it would be
indeed laughable. Only the Bard himself was ever capable of crafting such
tragicomedy. Certainly if yet with us he would slather at the opportunity to
put his quill to it.
So what do we do? Each to dumbly pull the lever as directed
by his partisan mesmerists? Cop out for the "lesser-evil," claiming our
intelligence superior to partisanship -- perhaps a choice such as Stalin over
Hitler? Insist that our future is locked in a two-party vice and a third choice
is futile if not idiotic -- the exact kind of thinking that has imprisoned our
mentality and denied us any choices other than
those mandated by partisan
conventions orchestrated by interests other than the actual best interests of
the American people.
It is admittedly difficult to adequately describe the mess
we're in and indeed much more difficult to propose how we get out of it.
Revolution, although history's frequent recourse, seems something we're not
quite ready for at this juncture. Totally pitching our Constitution -- shredded
by devious purpose as it is -- in favor of perhaps a parliamentary system -- it
seems would be a muddling endeavor taking too much time to spare us from
immanent danger of being flushed further down the bottomless drain of private --
make that treacherous -- enterprise.
Firstly, we need to comprehend that we the people can indeed
be the masters of a government that actually serves our best interests and not
those of the greed and power meisters currently in
charge. Then we need to advise the partisan propagandists that
they are no longer to be the engineers of our voting persuasion, and immediately
follow-up by discharging their current choices and
"lesser-evil" propositions. In other words, my fellow Americans: Wake up,
Now that our problem has been
described as best an innocent can manage, can you help out and contribute to a
solution? All entries will be considered, except of course those afflicted
with Dimocrat or Repukian dementia.
