Response to Bjorn Against (Original post)

84. "Let's fight the real enemies." Hear, hear!

The One Percent who have purchased both parties depend on their game of pitting Reds and Blues out in the country against each other. They stoke partisan hatred and rely on it to ensure that, no matter which party is in power and implementing their predatory agenda, half of those paying attention will circle the wagons and defend the indefensible out of pure fear or hatred that the other party would be worse.

It has been a brilliant scam.

But what happens when the people finally wake up and realize that they are being played, and unite *across party* to oppose a policy that is predatory and unconscionable?

That's what's happening now. Americans *across party* are outaged at being spied upon like criminals by our own government, and we are standing up to demand answers and accountability. And the result is that the long denied collusion between the two corporate parties is finally exposed. Cheney defends this. Obama defends this. Graham defends this. Pelosi defends this. The real enemy is the corporate money that floods our government and elections, and the corporatism that now drives policy in both parties.

These corporatists have been walking hand in hand all along, on virtually every major issue important to the One Percent. We are only seeing their collusion and clinging together more clearly on *this* issue, because the outage across the country is finally bipartisan, and they can no longer hide behind their carefully propagandized Red and Blue Teams to pretend they are on opposite sides.
