62. Hard to figure this ...
Edited on Sun Nov-20-11 01:49 PM by defendandprotect
I will still vote for Obama since there is no real choice and the alternative is going over
to super fascism.

but I'm thankful for all the OWS that are awake to the real reality.

What Chomsky is saying is that there is little difference between parties and candidates --

they are property of elites/corporations.

The message of OWS is that BOTH parties are finished.

OWS is looking -- as we all are -- to move to the LEFT.

No one who is "awake to the real reality" is going to vote for Obama or anyone further

to the right. Why would they? That anyone who sees and reads the criticism of Obama and

his corporate agenda would suggest such a thing amazes me.

We've had 40 years and more of voting for the "lesser evil" -- all that has ever done is

move the party and the Congress further to the right. Why would we continue to do that?

We need a challenger to Obama in 2012 -- we have a massive liberal voting bloc.

This is a liberal nation --

80% of the public want an end to the wars which, btw, are bankrupting the nation.

76% and more want MEDICARE FOR ALL --
