    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.

    This comment illustrates the international opinion of american ignorance. I take it you have never read Al Jazeera, but decide based upon that it is middle eastern that it is therefor evil

    Perhaps I can next get a post to exemplify the classic anti-intellectualism

    JUST FOR THE RECORD….It’s “HEAR, HEAR” Please!

    $3,700,000,000,000 over five years? Assuming 365 days in a year and a population of 350mill, this ends up with every citizen paying an average of $5.79 a day for your welfare system. Seems reasonable enough to me. I know people who spend more than that on friggin’ coffee.

    While it’s fun to point out “American elitism” because they call themselves Americans it’s not that at all. It’s not egotism that makes Americans the accepted name for those from the United States of America. It’s common standard developed by peoples of all countries. Simply put, Americans is easier to say than United Statesians.
