Response to Peace Patriot (Reply #55)

83. Oh, I do agree with you and say I hope that Iceland can and will happen over here. I believe

 

this is what Occupy Wall Street is all about. But --- the circumstances have changed a good
deal from the days of FDR. The Old Timer Republicans were greedy and selfish, but they were
still human. Today's Neocons, Corporatists, Libertarians and Tea Partyers are no longer
Republicans. In fact, it was the Neocons who joined them, then worked their way up the power
structure, usurped the power of the Old Republicans and kicked them out of the Party. But
they continued to use the same name, in order to fool the Old Timer Repuplicans and continue
getting their votes. Many of these latter don't yet know that a coup within their Party had
taken place.

Yes, the Corporate Press has been operating for many many decades. Untruths, distortions
and outright lies are their daily fare. It is a disgrace to our nation, but it has been very effective
in brain-washing half of our nation. These and other practices - such as fraudulent voting and
fraudulent elections en masse - show that the present-day leadership has been taken over by
large numbers of sociopaths.

Present-day "Republicans" and those of FDR's day are two quite different entities.

I must also say that the lackadaisical attitude of many Democrats toward the wrongs - some of
them illegal, and almost all of them immoral - point out that the Democrats, themselves, have
been enabling, aiding and abetting these wrongs. If they had fought more seriously against
these wrongs, the Greedy Old Pigs party would never have come this far in their ill-doings.
