I’ve said this frequently, it is a bizarre political year and the parties are on their way DOWN.
Ron Paul people, have been gaining delegates, putting the GOP in an uproar, and showing that party for the hypocrite and anti-people enemy it has become.
But before anyone laughs at the GOP problems the democratic party is in just as bad of shape. They’ve decided to get a ‘pro-life in name only’ democrat, Tony Campolo to join in and ‘explore’ putting a life plank in- probably to try to make inroads to the pro-life movement which is very unhappy with McCain and now expects the GOP to betray that interest ONE MORE TIME.
Clinton, blindly ambitious at ANY COST, is threatening the ‘nuclear option’ against Obama delegates, supporters of a nincompoop who doesn’t have a plank to actually stand on, even when it is provided for him.
Despite all this, the ONE THING that is totally forgotten by both parties is:
WHAT DO THE PEOPLE WANT???
They want the parties to listen to THEM- the Presidential election would look VERY DIFFERENT if the parties DID listen.
They want to get out of the war. They want the troops HOME.
They want their economy REPAIRED. They want America rebuilt.
They want their own work, their own income, their own commitments to benefit themselves, their family, their country.
They want small government; they want their Constitution BACK.
They want their RIGHTS.
They want trade policies that are fair and balanced, and keep jobs HERE. Fairness in pay for the rich versus pay for the workers.
They want the necessities of life, food, gas, utilities, to be affordable.
They want to have GENUINE, not CORPORATE, health care. They want their property saved, not the wealthy. They want the right to farm, to keep government off their backs; to freely travel, work and build a business without raids, laws and idiots coming in and running them out of business; they want the former freedom from illegal search and seizure, from illegal militias, from borrowing from our enemies to make the war machine people rich.
The parties are failing, can’t keep it together, and there is no reason they SHOULD. Both together have VIOLATED everything it means to be an American.
We watch with interest as power slips from the hands of the elites. The people are gathering for a true come-uppance, and the power brokers that ignore us will regret their decision this time.
