Congratulations Americans - You've Just Voted Yourselves Into Corporate Slavery

A dumbed-down electorate, brainwashed by corporate media, devoid of any capacity for critical thinking, will vote for its own oppression every time.

Here comes Trump

Republicans have always come up short when it comes to intelligence and wisdom, and their woeful lack of collective brain power, with the looming coronation of Donald Trump, has never been more in evidence than it is now. Moreover, one can point the finger squarely at the Republican Party establishment, Fox News and right-wing talk radio for the rise of Mr. Trump. He is their creation, and they only have themselves to blame.

Polls show that the vast majority of Donald's backers, now more than 40 percent of Republicans and climbing daily, are low-information, under-educated, working class white males who are completely oblivious to the fact that Trump, and indeed all Republican politicians, do not and never have represented anyone but the top one percent. They haven't a clue that every time they pull the lever for a Republican, they cast a vote for their own oppression.

Here comes Hillary

Way to go Democrats. You have just virtually guaranteed the Democratic nomination of Hillary Clinton for President. You have assured us that the Democratic Party, having been sold down the river by Bill Clinton in the 1990s, will continue to no longer represent the values of FDR, will no longer represent the interests of working class Americans, will in fact no longer represent the American people at all.

Bill Clinton gave us NAFTA, wholesale Wall Street deregulation, welfare "reform" that threw millions into poverty, a crime bill that resulted in mass incarceration of minorities and the prison industrial complex. Now we have voted to continue that course.

We had a chance this year to effect a sea change within the Democratic Party and to return it to its New Deal roots. Instead we have chosen a corporate hack, a woman who sucks up to Wall Street to the tune of 250,000 dollars per speech. A woman who takes millions in campaign money from Big Oil, the pharmaceutical industry and the for-profit prison lobby.

We Democrats chose this corporation-loving, neo-liberal war hawk over an incorruptible public servant, Bernie Sanders, who thinks and speaks in terms of what's possible, not what's 'practical.'. And this proves we're no more enlightened than the stupid and ignorant Republicans. We Democrats are every bit as manipulated by the corporate media, and every bit as clueless.

An anonymous writer posted the following on www.democraticunderground.com today, and I would like to quote it, because it reflects my own personal views completely:

"I very sincerely, for so many reasons, hope that she does not win the nomination. I refuse to think about that possibility unless/until there is no other option.

I hope Bernie stands tall all the way
He speaks truth to power.
I am proud to walk the earth at the same time as this man.

He is up there. Way up there.
Gandhi up there. Mandela up there.
MLK up there. FDR up there.
Lincoln up there.

He is the embodiment of a well principled man.

I hope fathers point to their sons and say:
Here is a man among men. Emulate him and you will have a life well lived.":

For a non American ... I have to say ' Here Here ' to your words Steve .
The hat speaks volumes .
It must be all the greasy burgers and mountains of sugar that have addled peoples minds to the point that they cannot see the dangers waiting to strike from within ...and without !.
It's not just wool that has been pulled over the eyes ...but the whole Blanket .
I truly pray that people will wake up from their stupor and vote right with clear understanding of what the consequences will be if they don't.
Many blessings to you
Stella ><

This election is crazy. Great share. I met someone who said he didn't know for whom to vote, since, it seems like many people are feeling the same way.

I don't know how anyone can say that, since Bernie Sanders is the only person of principle in the race, a fact that should be crystal clear to anyone who has been paying the slightest attention.

I'm sorry, Steve, you felt it was necessary to equate Hillary Clinton with Donald Trump. As First Lady, Hillary fought for health insurance for children (SCHIP). As Senator, she was a leader in the dark aftermath of September 11th. As Secretary of State, she fought for womens' rights, highlighted LBGT rights, and organized international agreements, ceasefires and coalitions. Donald Trump never did any other those things.

And Donald Trump never engineered a coup that deposed a democratically elected leader in Honduras, probably as a result of her thinking Henry Kissinger a great statesman instead of the war criminal he is. As president, she would be - maybe not as big a disaster as Trump would be, but mighty close.

Sanders also rejects the interventionist paradigm, which she heartily embraces. Sanders is the only candidate from either side who will not eagerly send your kids to war.

I'm not equating Hillary Clinton with Donald Trump, L.R., I'm equating low-information Democratic voters with their Republican counterparts.

I pinned my hopes on Sanders' being the man to represent America for a change, Steve. Sorry, it turned out differently.

Bernie's not done yet Buzz. He could still win, although it's looking less likely all the time.

Oh and Steve - I see no evidence about Honduran coup engineering. (Daily Kos as you know is a well-known liberal blog) http://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/10/25/1438997/-It-Takes-Fortitude-and-Hillary-Clinton-Has-It-The-Honduras-Edition

Perhaps she didn't engineer it, but......"both under Clinton and Kerry, the State Department’s response to the violence and military and police impunity has largely been silence, along with continued U.S. aid to Honduran security forces. In “Hard Choices,” Clinton describes her role in the aftermath of the coup that brought about this dire situation. Her firsthand account is significant both for the confession of an important truth and for a crucial false testimony.

First, the confession: Clinton admits that she used the power of her office to make sure that Zelaya would not return to office. “In the subsequent days I spoke with my counterparts around the hemisphere, including Secretary Espinosa in Mexico,” Clinton writes. “We strategized on a plan to restore order in Honduras and ensure that free and fair elections could be held quickly and legitimately, which would render the question of Zelaya moot.”

This may not come as a surprise to those who followed the post-coup drama closely. (See my commentary from 2009 on Washington’s role in helping the coup succeed here, here and here.) But the official storyline, which was dutifully accepted by most in the media, was that the Obama administration actually opposed the coup and wanted Zelaya to return to office.
Clinton’s position on Latin America in her bid for the presidency is another example of how the far right exerts disproportionate influence on US foreign policy in the hemisphere.

The question of Zelaya was anything but moot. Latin American leaders, the United Nations General Assembly and other international bodies vehemently demanded his immediate return to office. Clinton’s defiant and anti-democratic stance spurred a downward slide in U.S. relations with several Latin American countries, which has continued. It eroded the warm welcome and benefit of the doubt that even the leftist governments in region offered to the newly installed Obama administration a few months earlier."

Well said, Steve. I don't know how many political "discussions" I've had with others who don't seem to understand the difference between communist socialism and democratic socialism. They tell me it's I who doesn't understand, and if Bernie wins, we're all doomed to big corps. and politicos grabbing up the money for themselves while we "little ppl." suffer in poverty. All the same, I prefer Bernie's views and values. We'll see, won't we? wink wink

It seems to me that your friends' "assessments" are far more true if Hillary wins. Thanks for commenting Lyndy. I appreciate it.

For all of our talk about change we prove over and over that we are actually afraid of independence, we are actually afraid of the unknown. We consistently vote for the status quo and if that status quo is moving further and further to the right, that's fine I will do the intelligent thing; i just won't vote. That'll show em.

all the time we seem to forget that we are 'em' we are the governement but maybe we don't really understand what is happening here. why is it we never really have a viable choice why is it we always come down to choosing between the lesser of two or more evils sorry my cap keys are not working until we get serious and take the country back we are going to continue making the 1 percent wealthier and giving all of our power away i honestly do not know if we will ever get wise enough to do something i am 61 and the last time i saw an election which seemed as though there might actually be change was in 1960 when kennedy was elected and he ended up being killed off because he threatened the federal reserve

change will not be easy but we need to strap up, take back the corporations which own us and fight, fight, fight there is no other way we are certainly going further down the drain with the upcoming hillarious presidency

There are massive numbers of people who have joined Bernie Sanders' revolution, and Hillary has another think coming if she assumes we will all vote for her. I for one will write in Bernie's name in November. She will be a disaster as president - Republican lite - at heart a right-wing, warmongering corporate toady. I predict she will not be halfway into her presidency when millions will take to the streets in opposition to her policies.

Thanks for commenting and raising such salient points onenow. I appreciate it.
