Senators Clinton & Obama Abstain From Voting On Senate Spy Bill

      I'm not impressed with the leading Democratic candidates not voting on this spy bill. Civil Rights aside it clearly shows a certain allegiance to their Corporate masters as this bill also includes immunity for these tele communications industries. Who I suppose actually did or allowed the eaves dropping. Republican McCain at least stood up and was counted as one of the 68 who voted for this spy bill along with his buddy Joe Lieberman.
      It marches on. When the majority of Americans finally wake up and realize that it is they who are the target of this endless War on Terror, it will of course be too late. The power is already in place for dissenters to be considered enemy combatants and denied all due process in the name of National security. So when will the crack downs begin in your town? I suppose they will continue to steal the economic power of the lower classes for awhile yet. It's so much easier to dominate and rule masses concerned only with survival. But the day is coming soon enough. Sad though, there really are so many people who are actually in favor of this New World Order. People who see individuality and non conformity as a nuisance. They are your neighbors or family even. 
      This election will make no difference. The Democrat or the Republican will simply right from DAY ONE continue the eroding of what some of us used to consider the American Way of Life, though they all claim just the opposite. The Federal Reserve and Congress with it's inflationary policies continue to strip the economic power of those not blessed with exorbitant wealth, all in the name of saving the economy. People enjoy saying that the poor get what they deserve. The homeless and the criminal are simply victims of their own bad choices. Well, my friends it's the poor side of town that's getting more  new residents everyday. And rest assured these new residents all said, like you, that this could never happen to them.
       It's not bad luck, it's not Darwinism. It is a deliberate strategy from the upper most reaches of the Global Plutocracy. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama may try to hide their complicity in this plot, but their abstentions in this latest  Senate vote scream otherwise from the darkness of their mutual silence. So please, you all go on and vote for the Black man or the Woman whom you feel will give you more. Because it is definitely more that you will get. It's just not what in your wildest delusional populist dreams what you think. These are two Globalist peas in a pod, dyed in the wool Corporates. The wool, that is what they are pulling over your eyes.
       The ground work has been set, the Corporates have been immunized, the people's right to privacy stripped. The Primaries for both parties have brought you the candidates that will be only too happy to continue the march. Deny it to yourselves if you wish, but just go check the voting records of these candidates. Actions still speak louder than words. I am at the point where it really does start to concern me because I can already feel it. I don't have enough Dollars to keep shrugging off the rising prices for the necessities of life. I can see myself slipping through the cracks from here. I can't afford 10$/Gallon gas, 1500$/month mortgage, Health Care, 8$ hamburgers.  I'm a survivor though. But my new reality is for me to have to admit that I've only been a survivor so far. And I don't see the trend changing for the better anytime soon.
       I suppose when the Homeless problem reaches a certain thresh hold, or the mobs of hungry people get too unruly and loud, perhaps when the sick and diseased no longer have an out of the way place to die, then we'll see what the plan is for the FEMA camps. And yes, I read all this into this one latest vote by our Congress. I read enough into this vote to assure myself that the next President will not be,,,,,an American President at all.
