Just look at the statements being made by conservatives during this sham we call presidential primaries. See any poor people? See anyone who is a representative of the poor or lower middle class? See any honesty? All we are left with is the more serious greed of the more conservative candidates vs. so-called progressives.
The way the Right has overwhelmed American society and the U.S. agenda is very, very worrisome to the rest of the world. It looks to most people in the world that the U.S. has been captured and tricked by a sort of capitalistic fascism that uses religion to justify its worship of materialism ...and that is a materialism selected out for the rich's benefit.
We have sacrificed many thousands of American lives and the lives of hundreds of thousands of others to foster corporate greed in Iraq. And we have "Christians" stand up and tell us it is for something good. Scam! It is for the military-industrial complex and those who know how to work this religious carnival to benefit the few. Democracy in America went out the window at least as far back as the election of Ronald Reagan to the White House.
Barack Obama says some hopeful things. But so did prior presidential candidates. Our only hope is for people of conscience, people with true democracy on their mind, people who advocate for freedom AND equality, people who do not view the world as existing for their own indulgence and comfort to rise up and hold Obama's feet to the fire. Yes, we truly need a sort of revolution. America has become a greedy pit, and the world be damned!
It is not enough to support Obama or Clinton. It is time to demand they become a voice for what made this a great country. Selfishness should not be the motto of America.
