To our extra terrestrial friends who are confused about our election rhetoric.
If you have been reviewing our transmissions as the United States ramps up for November election, I can understand how you might be a bit confused.
You may have come under the impression that we select our leaders solely on their treatment of house hold pets and whether or not they eat peas.
It may appear to you that we have replaced the concept of one person equals one vote in favor of a system where one dollar equals one vote. Hopefully this will be a temporary situation.
What may confuse you even more is those possessing the ‘purchasing power’, cannot align with the candidate of their choice but must use their resources mostly to attack the candidate that is not their choice.
This might explain to you why you hear so much about stay at home housewives, militant musicians; who incidentally you will not find in the rock and roll hall of fame; and other foolishness that you, as an advanced race cannot understand.
From the current background noise it may appear that our current president, one Barack Obama has accomplished little since he took office.
It is true that Obama has not accomplished all that we had hoped for, however it most defiantly cannot be said that he has accomplished nothing.
The following may give you some idea of what has been achieved.
You should be aware that we have two major political parties with radical splinter groups such as the TeaBaggers, yup that’s what they call themselves, generally aligning themselves with one major party or the other.
In most of our history the two major parties have found ways to work with each other to address the needs of managing the country.
In recent years this has most certainly not been the case. The leaders of party that Mr. Romney is aligned with have exhibit single minded fervor to one and only one goal.
It is expressed by one of their leaders here…..
I hope you will understand that it is the substance rather than the retroact that is important.

1. That video clip needs to be played over and over, interspersed with a list of the countries
problems that the Republicans refuse to acknowledge, but otherwise escalate, in their quest to destroy this country economically, for no other reason than to try to make Obama look bad.
Refusing to raise taxes. Cutting spending/safety net programs, education, anything that helps those in need, over funding their wars. Outsourcing, deregulation, greed. Drug testing for the workers, while the management drives the company into the ground in their quest for more and more untaxed profits. Clips from the Klown Kar. And so on and so on.
you will be on the menu."
Old Republican saying
"Remember the reasons behind the Guillotine you greedy bastards!"
GOP motto: If it ain't broke, fix it till it is.
Republicans don't want to govern. They want to rule.

sound bite and photo op. I think OWS did a good job until the press turned it into photo op and sound bite.
