    The United States, like all capitalist countries, is ruled by an oligarchy, and always has been. These money-driven elections are a farce. Let us not confuse “democracy” with oligarchy. We have certain democratic rights – the Bill of Rights – that the oligarchs were forced to concede to us through protest – but that is not the same as demo-cracy, rule by majority. Otherwise, unemployment, poverty, injustice, and war would be abolished.

    Unfortunately, I do. We seem to pick the worst and the second worst person in the country to run it, and then get to choose between them.

    What are the chances Gore would have taken us into Iraq? Thousands of lives saved, billions of dollars not wasted. Worth a try.

    Yea, but if the percentage of voters that actually do is any indication there are on hell of a lot of smart Americans!

    I’m just an old Dead Head, who as a former teacher is somewhat bemused by what texters & tweeters do to the English language & I figured out ‘totes’ immediately. What I couldn’t fathom is what an umbrella had to do with it.

    “Dems round up homeless bums and buy their votes for a pack of cigs and a drink.” Can you document that with a reliable reference or is that just another mindless right wing nut sound bite?

    Just another wing nut being contemptuous of the general public and showing his true colors.

    I’ve skipped his posts for years, and it’s cured the blinding headaches that came from reading harly’s posts.

    Ted, the Koch’s don’t do…goat. They have managed to purchase one large arm of the supreme court though, and own and operate the Tea Party franchise, a wholly owned and operated subsidiary of the Koch Industries!

    ^I left out the Koch water carriers run the Republican House. Not to worry, I’m sure they can purchase Democrats as easily.

    Yes, I recognize Faux News blather quickly, and after learning the new screed they are promoting, promptly don my BS filter gas mask!
