Another Election Sham in Police-State ‘America’
“The pretense in disputed elections is that the great conflict is between the two major parties. The reality is that there is a much bigger conflict that the two major parties jointly wage against large numbers of Americans who are represented by neither party and against powerless millions around the world.”
…the two parties have combined against us to nullify our power by a ‘gentlemen’s agreement’ of non-recognition, no matter how we vote…May God write us down as asses if ever again we are found putting our trust in either Republican or the Democratic parties.”
The November 6, 2012 election sham in this NDAA, police-state, ‘America’ amply demonstrated 1) the insidious two-party dictatorship and stranglehold of and by the corporate owned, symbiotically-joined, Democratic and Republican parties; and 2) it highlighted, to the discerning observer, the enormous (almost evenly split) division and polarization in the so-called ‘popular vote’ on the part of those eligible voters that participated in this election farce. Keeping the people controlled, polarized, and divided is of course precisely how the Democratic and Republican parties maintain their political dictatorship.
Hideously, billions of dollars were spent by Barack Obama and Mitt Romney in this ‘election’ sham even as joblessness, home foreclosures, economic austerity, corporate hegemony, and perpetual U.S. wars continue – unabated. Yet again, the everyday ordinary Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people of this nation have been shamelessly pimped and sucker punched. The corporate-stream media raked in many millions of dollars by propagating this election sham even as the ordinary people of this nation remain in the political and economic death-grip of corporate owned, war mongering Democratic and Republican parties.
