61. There are differences, but the massive areas of sameness are heartbreaking.

There is no light between Bush/Obama,
or the Leadership of both parties on:

*The Failed War on Drugs

*The Privatization of our Commons

*The support for Right Wing Death Squad governments in Latin America
and the demonization of the emerging populist true Democracies

*The Patriot Act and the marginalization of The Constitution

*The Use of our military to make the World safe for predation by the Global Corporations (AKA: The Permanent War on "Terror"

*The extra-constitutional perpetual War Time Powers of the Unitary Executive

*Forcing the American Working Class to compete with Slave Labor for their jobs (AKA: Free Trade, AKA:Race to the bottom)

*professed belief and religious submission to an "Invisible Hand" for which no proof exists.

*The militarization and national co-ordination of our local Police Departments

*Submission of the US Government and Legal System to Wall Street Banks

*The protection of the predatory For Profit Health Insurance Corporations
(Wall Street's Incestuous 1st Cousin)

*Austerity, "Entitlements", and "The Deficit"
(There IS some daylight between the Parties here,
but NOT on the Political Position,
only on HOW MUCH we are going to give the Already Rich.

*Lack of support for locally owned businesses in the War against the Big Boxes
(There ARE existing Fair Competition Laws & Regulations that could be used)

*The For Profit Private Prison Industrial Complex

*The Privatization of our Public Schools

*The Privatization of our Military
(Armed "Private" Contractors...AKA:Mercenaries)

*Subsidies for the Richest Corporations in The World

*The many others mentioned above



Nobody has ever seriously claimed that "Obama = Bush",
though that is a fabrication that the shit stirrers love to splash around.

Unfortunately, on too many important issues and policies
the difference between Bush/Republicans vs Obama/"Centrist"Democrats is not significant.
