Why Does Sociopathic Scum Rise To The Top?

This is one of the great articles that causes one to think and raise questions. It is rather long, and
many of the comments that follow it are equally thought-provoking.

I came upon this article while surfing the Internet. Topics covered are: Corporations, government,
society and morality. Even though the topic was written in May, 2013, it has as much relevance
today as it did then.

About Pres. Obama: If he has gone as far to the right as the author alleges, the question that
arises in my mind is, then why are the Right-Wing Congress and news media trying so hard to
destroy him? Could it all be an act? A ploy on the part of the Right-Wing leadership to make
Obama appear less Right-Wing, and, hence, more acceptable to the Left?

I'd prefer to see Elizabeth Warren as our next president. But if Hillary Clinton

should win in the primaries, I'd of course vote for her. I'd also be hoping that
with Hillary as president, it will not be simply a matter of "more of the same."
Our nation can't take this "more of the same" much longer. We need someone
who is clearly "left of center."

"Right of center" Democratic presidents only help to keep the Right-Wingers
in power longer, and thus prolong the degeneration of our country and the
suffering of the American people.

That's the way the present situation appears to me -- looking at the whole
broad picture. How do other Democrats see it?

Elizabeth Warren's consumer watch-dog forces JP Morgan to pay $329 million refund, and also

imposed a $920 million fine on JP Morgan's London office for a bad trade.

Finally Warren's efforts are bearing fruit -- and big time fruit, indeed!
I hope more of the ill-gotten gains of this and other large banks and
corporations will be paid back to the people who have been cheated
and screwed by these big-time crooks.

More power to the people of America because of her!

Didn't Newt Gomgrich shut down the government some 20 years ago, and the Repubs. lost the House

as a result? These nutjobs don't learn anything from experience, do they?

If they shut down the government again, they might very well lose the House again come 2014.
People get tired of their BS.

Yes, but the objective of the GOP is not to solve problems, but to create more of them. Haven't

you noticed? Their objective is to confuse the American people, because confused people
are easier to twist around your finger.

I hope Reid and all the other spineless Democrats in office will have successful primary

challengers when their terms are up. Only then will the Democratic Party be moving ahead.

This is just one of the ways in which the GOP is practicing vote fraud. They do it in so many

other ways in addition to the infamous electronic voting machines.

It's high time that Democrats are becoming more active it doing something to stop
all this dishonesty. We have waited too long. And once we have started, let's not
stop again. The GOP sure will continue their dirty, slimy ways.

Does anyone know how many Republicans Obama has picked for his cabinet and other positions

such as this one so far? Several of them have been Bush aides.

Warren is one of the few prominent Democratic politicians who has the courage to

call a spade a spade. We've had years of those fence-sitting so-called Democratic
politicians who seem to be afraid of their own shadows, and the Right-Wingers have
only gotten stronger during this time, despite the fact that they have never offered
any proposals to better the lot of the American people. All they do is to block and
destroy whatever the Democrats are trying to do for our nation.

These Ghoulish Odious Parasites (GOP) have never made any proposals because they
have nothing to offer but misery and death. They are too busy making money flow
into their own pockets through all means fair and foul, including preying upon their
own poor and elderly fellow-Americans at every opportunity possible. They are too
busy thinking of their ghoulish profits to care about anybody else.

Obama recently said that if he had been president in the 1980s, he would have been considered a

"moderate Republican." And this from his own lips. I saw it on TV news. So is he, himself,
telling us that he is a moderate Republican?

To the Right-Wingers, of course, this is not enough. To them he is still a "Commie." This shows
how far the whole political scene has shifted to the right in this country. Too many of the leaders
of our nation (both in government and in private industry) are half-crazed fanatics -- fanatics for
their own personal profit, and to hell with everybody else. This is why our whole nation is in the
mess and chaos we are in.

This is what happens when we have too many sickos in positions of power. We are being ruled
by sickos. What else can be expected to happen to our nation but go down-hill? And we have
been going down-hill for a long time.

These mad hats have got to be stopped. There isn't much time left before total disaster strikes.
We've got to win both houses of Congress in 2014, and the presidency in 2016. Fence-sitting
Democratic candidates will not bring about change. The best they can do is to maintain the status
quo, and prolong the agony we're in. In short, all they can provide is more of the same.

For REAL CHANGE we need more Progressive Democrats in office -- people like Warren, Sanders,
Grayson............... And we've got to win in 2014 and 2016.

I 'd like to hear the views of those Democrats who believe that a "middle-of-the-road" approach
might be wiser, and certainly safer.
