Who Will Speak for the Dead of 9/11?

By Richard Franklin  Posted by Sheila Samples (about the submitter)       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   5 comments
Who Among the Candidates Will Speak for the Dead of 9/11?

Cynthia McKinney, who knows exactly what happened on 9/11, is mum on
this subject as she runs for the presidency on the Green Party ticket.

Ralph Nader knows what happened on 9/11, but even this most courageous of candidates is refusing to discuss it. I deeply admire him, but he
ultimately has let us down.

The Libertarian Party chooses to ignore 9/11, an event that was clearly
anathema to their political views. This seems odd to me. After all, 3,000 souls were definitely deprived of their liberty for political gain. That seems anti-libertarian to me.

The various socialist parties have also chosen to ignore 9/11, thusly
demonstrating how far from being radical they really are. (Keep in mind
the meaning of 'radical', which suggests going to the roots of an issue, as opposed to focusing on what has grown from those roots.)

The Constitution Party, which is Pat Buchanan's favored vehicle, ironically accepts the amending of state constitutions to ban marriage contracts between gays or between lesbians, thusly indicating the Constitution Party does not have even a minimal understanding of what is the fundamental purpose of the national and state constitutions, which is to protect minorities from being discriminated against by tyrannical majorities. Pat's party also chooses to ignore 9/11, thusly suggesting they don't see massively bloody false flag ops by the White House as a constitutional issue. Now ain't that just a wee bit odd?

I have finally decided I will not vote. There is no party or candidate for whom I can offer even a symbolic vote. It is often parroted by shallow thinkers that not voting is a form of voting for the greater of two evils. Haw! If not one single candidate is even asking for a broad and deep independent study of 9/11, then I ask which candidate would be the lesser of the current ovine herd of worthless cowards?

There simply is no issue as basic as 9/11. Everything bad that has happened to this nation since that date has in one way or another depended on that massacre. The absolute silence of the existing political candidates regarding 9/11 makes every candidate a de facto partner in the ongoing coverup of the worst single crime ever perpetrated in American history.

I hereby devoutly wish for a plague on all their houses. I think I'll pour myself a large glass of cheap brandy and watch a dirty movie on election day. I'll feel much cleaner that way than if I were to vote for any of the assorted slate of cowards.

I am told we can never effect deep changes in the system with my
attitude. I say we can never effect deep changes without my attitude.
So there. Those who make such foolish judgments can put that in their
pipes and smoke it.

(Of course, I've chosen for heuristic reasons to exclude consideration of the known fact that the coming elections will be fixed. Take note that Jack McCafferty, a national TV news commentator for CNN, has also expressed his deep concerns over the honesty of the coming elections. For that alone, he deserves the Croix de Guerre.)
