3 options for national salvation:

(1.) The pragmatic option is to simply take over the Democratic Party. Infuse it with liberals and progressive and flush (as rapidly as possible) "establishment" dems down the nearest toilet -- integrity/courage vacuums like Happy Hillary Clinton and Judas Joe Lieberman come to mind, plus, alas, the vast majority of the conscienceless Democratic Party.

(2.) Create a viable 3rd Political Party. Not pragmatic, but perhaps more feasible than we think since the polls are practically begging for a political party that represents the majority of American voters -- which is clearly NEITHER the Democratic Party nor the neo-Nazi Republican Party. Yes, this would be a quantum jump change, but when civilization is fighting for its life, who knows what is realistically possible?

(3.) The "hard ball" solution would be massively organized and substantially funded strategies which are contemptuously indifferent to traditional politics. Perhaps this solution is inevitable since politics is now more part of the problem than the solution. The traditional political mechanisms (forgive the slang) have degenerated into pissing contests. Listen to Clinton/Liberman babble -- nonstop collaboration and enabling.

The bottom line is that we are (and always have been) living in a Dictatorship of the Rich and our Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumber "two party system" has criminally betrayed us (i.e., 99% of the country). Even barnyard animals know that the pig, pig rich (of BOTH parties) have turned all the rest of us into their commode cleaners. We pay the taxes, fight their wars and we are at the bottom of a food chain of table scraps -- especially during these last seven Bush years.

The "middle" and "lower classes" are being buried alive in a Class War in which Greek God like elites are picking their teeth with our bones. They have stolen our retirements, our health care, stifled scientific research, trashed our children's schools, and defecated on the soul of America. Their vampire greed is literally limitless and we are running out of blood.

So which is it? Answering this question is the ultimate challenge of the early 3rd millennia.

I vote for hard ball.
