Forum Post: This actually makes me feel sorry for Republicans.

These videos also make me feel ashamed that I belong to the same race as them. After fully absorbing the implications of what these videos mean, and that such a large percentage of Americans think like this, I have pretty much come to the conclusion that America is probably doomed. There just isn't enough collective wisdom and brainpower to reverse course. This is born out by the number of R states versus D states as indicated in one of the videos. I do, of course, hope that I'm wrong.

please consider WORKING with us to do what 80% of Americans polled say they want done:

by stopping the flood of bribes into our government.

Are you ready
.....................FOR ACTION ?
Are you ready
.....................TO DO SOMETHING REAL ?
Are you ready
......................TO JOIN 80% OF YOUR FELLOW AMERICANS ?


We must not
DEMAND that we WANT THEM.to give to US
We must
DEMAND GOALS THAT WE WILL ACHIEVE FOR OURSELVES


Because of the Supreme Court's decision,
we cannot accomplish anything significant, without FIRST -

Overturning Citizens United !!!
Ending Corporate Personhood !!!


80% of Americans already agree on it
as stated in the ABC/Washington Post poll


In the the PFAW Poll -

85% of voters say that corporations have too much influence over the political system today.
77% think Congress should support an amendment to limit the amount corporations can spend on elections.
74% say that they would be more likely to vote for a candidate for Congress who pledged to support a Constitutional Amendment limiting corporate spending in elections.


COMMENTS ON THE ABOVE ARE VERY MUCH APPRECIATED


IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO ACT ----> JOIN US TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE


Our primary goal should be to elect representatives who support a constitutional amendment to counter Supreme Court decision Citizens United (2010) , that enables unlimited amounts of anonymous money to flood into our political system.
We don’t have to explain or persuade people to accept our position – we only have to persuade them to ACT based on their own position. Pursuing this goal will prove to the world that we, at OWS, are a serious realistic Movement, with serious realistic goals. Achieving this goal will make virtually every other goal – jobs, taxes, infrastructure, Medicare – much easier to achieve –
by disarming our greatest enemy – GREED.


IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO ACT ----> JOIN US TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE


I feel that using the tactics of the NRA, the AARP, the TP, the anti-SOPA – who all represent a minority – who have successfully used their voting power and political pressure to achieve their minority goals - is a straight path for us to success that cannot fail to enable us to create and complete one task that the MAJORITY want.

You aren't wrong, we are totally screwed.

[-] 1 points by Underdog (2971) from Clermont, FL 1 year ago

Thank you for your brief comment. I'm actually surprised that this didn't generate more discussion.

[-] 0 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 1 year ago

This didnt generate more comments because everyone knows its true, there is no debate.

This country is officially on the downward turn, etc.

No doubt. Elect Obama again, or Mittens, no difference, its on its way down. The markets dont lie.

Ignorance and fascism never used to be bedfellows.

I've met some hard-case racists and bigots in my time, and I don't deny that Australia has plenty of them, but they don't usually willingly vocalise in front of a camera, and they rarely run for public office.

If they do end up in politics, they don't last long.

[-] 2 points by Underdog (2971) from Clermont, FL 1 year ago

Are you from Australia? If so, as an outside observer, do you think there is any strategy that could correct this mess? What I see is what could be, but that is sadly prevented by stupidity as portrayed in the videos, and this makes me very sad to realize that the potential is there, but it is weighed down by ignorance.

[-] 1 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Yeah, from down under. What would I suggest to cure generations of ingrained bigotry? Might be what all those FEMA camps are set up for?

Naaah, but seriously, it might be time to Un-unite the States of America. A lot of this kind of ingrained hatred goes way back to the civil war.

We have parochialism in different states in Australia, but with so many different states under the one banner, I'm at a loss to even contemplate where to start on the massive task of uniting the United States.

Your comment got me to thinking, and I did a little research. The below link was surprising to me. Seems a whole lot of people want to secede. If they ever formed an effective coalition, that would make for some very interesting times indeed!!!
