If 250 million men women and children "fall dead in the forest," will Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan hear them?... or care?
The Republican candidates are part of the "Un-Holy Alliance"---international corporations, wealthiest men in the world, the Catholic Church's hierarchy, the industrial /military complex, Mormons, fundamentalist Christians, and the Tea Partiers whom Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner calls "knuckle-draggers." Romney and Ryan are opposed to "welfare" for the old, handicapped, students, the unemployed and the working poor. However, in this view, "welfare" for the rich is good. Romney started Bain Capital with $10 million in funds originating in the F.D.I.C. As head of Bain he outsourced thousands of workers' jobs overseas and now hides much of his vast wealth in offshore accounts.
-Privatize Social Security--The corporate government of the U.S. has already "borrowed" and spent Social Security's $2.7 trillion for such things as wars of aggression all over the world for corporate benefit. War is now "officially" 70+% of the U.S. budget, 41% of the military budgets of the total world, 5x China's, 10x Russia's and more than countries 2-16 combined. (Stockholm International Peace Research Institute)
-Raise taxes for 95% of Americans while cutting taxes for the wealthiest.
-Complete the privatization of the U.S. Post Office already started by Congress requiring 75 years-worth of retirement benefits be paid ahead of time for employees not yet born. The P.O. has failed to meet this insane requirement and is in danger of total privatization.
- Take women's right to control their own bodies away from them.
Of Constitutional Law, Federal Law, International Law and Laws of Humanity, how many times has Obama broken each?
The Democratic candidates are the purchased puppets of banks and corporations. Obama has chosen "Government Secrecy and War" as his major modes of operation. Those who are capable of reasoning recognize that Secrecy is incompatible with Democracy. Obama has not chosen Democracy. He persecutes and tortures American patriot whistle-blower Bradley Manning and doggedly seeks the extradition of World-class patriot/whistle-blower Julian Assange. In addition to conducting war in Afghanistan for corporate exploitation of its vast mineral and metals wealth, Obama has pushed war into Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and Libya. His administration has interfered with the democratically elected governments of Honduras, Bahrain, Paraguay, Venezuela and Bolivia and has placed stringent illegal sanctions upon Iran.
Within the last few days, Obama's Justice Department has given de facto asylum to Ex-Bolivian Dictator Sanchez de Lozada, who is wanted in Bolivia to face charges of genocide for killing hundreds of indigenous people.
By claiming Executive Privilege, Obama has claimed the power to kill anyone, American citizen or not, anywhere and anytime for any reason. "Combatants" are defined as any adults who are murdered by U.S. drones. He finds great pride in the murder of Osama Ben Laden and chillingly, the Democrats agree. He now pushes Congress for an ever larger budget for War, and wants corporations to build or purchase 25,000 camera and weapon-ready drones for "domestic use." Obama has also promised to sign away what little remains of Democracy and Freedom to the corporation-written Pacific Trade Partnership agreement which places corporations above the laws of all governments of the World, including "ours."
-Compromise away Social Security. After Obama earned the moniker of "Compromiser-In-Chief" many thought that he had changed into the new Franklin D. Roosevelt. Surprise! Recently Obama has offered a new compromise on Social Security.
-Continue what should be called a permanent state-of-war for corporate greed and avarice.
-Continue to ignore the need to prosecute ANY greedy Wall Street banker who caused the current recession/depression.
-Continue to push for pollution of our air and water by supporting oil interests in Arctic oil wells, gas well "fracking" and Canadian "tar sands" importation.
