They HAVE to! They don't really know how to do anything other than what they're told, especially when it comes to following the $$$....LMAO!

[-] 2 points by GypsyKing (9780) 2 years ago

Really sad to watch, isn't it.

[-] 2 points by DiMasciosBridge (170) from Washington, DC 2 years ago

It is...and now it's morphing into something they don't even see happening. So busy following that they can't see the cliff ahead.

[-] 2 points by GypsyKing (9780) 2 years ago

Every year the same thing; the Repubs. make a lot of noise about what "mavericks" they are, and then get right behind whoever they're told to vote for. Good God, what a spectacle!

[-] 2 points by DiMasciosBridge (170) from Washington, DC 2 years ago

You said it was sad, but it's kinda SCARY TOO! I mean, just to think that modern-day folk would be so easily led like that. Must be something really powerful yanking their chains, (whistle/whistle)...;)

Here we get into psychology, and I just can't go there right now. It's too scary at this time of night . . . LOL!

And the Dems are different how?

[-] 2 points by DiMasciosBridge (170) from Washington, DC 2 years ago

Not all, but most dems don't use RACISM as their first and usually ONLY tool for "problem solving".

That's how!

[-] 2 points by GypsyKing (9780) 2 years ago

They at least understand when it's happening. That's why so many Democrats have lost over the last generation. Because so many Democrats just couldn't hold their nose with one hand and vote with the other.

~lol~ Nice Post.

Afterward Romney will plant Bank of America's Flag at the Capital Court House in Tallahassee

[-] 2 points by GypsyKing (9780) 2 years ago

Those who say there's NO difference between the Democrats and the Republicans have very shory memories and ver poor imaginations. Furthermore, they play right into the hands of the 1%.

Sorry, it's the truth.

[-] 1 points by Lardhead2 (67) 2 years ago

They are all bought and paid for. Just like every democrat.

[-] 0 points by GypsyKing (9780) 2 years ago

Well, let's say all of the Republicans and half of the Democrats, but I won't split hairs with you. The question is, what do we do about it, and how?

[-] 1 points by Nordic (390) 2 years ago

Why waste your energy worrying about it? The elections are a sham. They had 100% hackable machines in South Carolina, and they do in Florida as well.

Votes don't count any more. Don't take the bait and get all sucked into this fake "election" drama.

Keep your eyes on the ball. It's NOT the election. Election season is one big distraction. Why else would CNN devote 5 straight hours of coverage to something that they can say in two words: "Gingrich won".

[-] 2 points by GypsyKing (9780) 2 years ago

I agree with you philosophically, but I differ tactically. There are avenues in the democratic process that can still produce results, if combined with protest and non-cooperation. For example, the online petitions that have been circulating have actually shown a lot of success. Also, the notion that EVERY politician is corrupt if a falacy.

So although the two party system has been cornered by vested interest, it has not been so in an irreversable way. Given focus and determination I think we can make progress in forcing the Democratic Party far to the left of where it now is. Furthermore, I think that a constitutional amendment to get money out of government is possible given the mood of the nation.

So while I agree the sytem is corrupt to the core, I don't think we should rule out established politics as one way of changing it. I think we must face the fact that one of the reasons politics has been corrupted is apathy. Way to many people have not voted, or not voted in a way that actually represents their own interests.

[-] 1 points by Nordic (390) 2 years ago

While I admire your optimism on this, having studied this for many years now, I see a danger in thinking we can overcome the corruption within the existing parties.

See, one of the way this works (for them) is that they welcome us in and say "oh yeah, we want your input! Sure!" But it's lip service. It's all part of their con job on us. These people are WAY ahead of almost all of us.

So what happens is that people THINK they can change things from within, are led to believe it from those who are within, in fact encouraged by those from within, then the next thing you know, you have what the "net roots" has turned into (Moveon, Dailykos, etc.), which is just another blind mouthpiece for "The Party", and the mindless support for the really awesome con men like Obama.

I'm not saying it can't be done, I'm saying that it's a trap.

I'm not saying don't do it, I'm saying try that, keeping your eyes open WHILE ALSO building the new political infrastructure to replace the dead dinosaurs (actually zombie dinosaurs, since they do in fact seem to eat everyone's brains).

Attack on all fronts, sure, but it's dangerous thinking you can change from within because they will suck you right in there and the next thing you know, you're rooting for anyone with a (D) after their name regardless of how many people they kill, Wall Street gangsters they hand out money to, or massive Corporate Welfare military contracts they hand out.

Obama should have been a HUGE wake up call to, well, everybody.

Obama was a CON. They realized we were starting to see the men behind the curtain, I mean just look back on those faces of those millions of people he would give his speeches to, those people were hungry, awake, and yearning for change. So they had Obama go out there and promise them change. They bought it, tears streaming down their faces.

Then he got in there and turned into the Third Reign of the Bush Family.

And you've got your Dem "establishment" supporting him? WHY THE FUCK DO THEY DO THAT? Because he has a (D) after his name, he's on "their team", NO OTHER REASON.

It's gotta stop. The Dems, the Repubs, the whole system is in the thrall of the Military Industrial Complex and the Banking System, which is all controlled behind the scenes by the Intelligence outfits. Let's quit beating around the bush about that. Our politicians are just front men for the Buzzy Krongards of the world (just as a fer instance).

It's a serious, serious situation and thinking we can change it from within is admirable in its optimism, but not realistic. At the same time, sure, go for it, but we HAVE to create a new system at the same time.

Absolutely HAVE to.

[-] 2 points by GypsyKing (9780) 2 years ago

I agree with much of what you say here. My take on the situation is simply this - that the power we are trying to reign-in is so entrenched that we must simply use EVERY avenue available to counter it, short of violence. That means simply seeing the established political channels as but ONE means among many of achieving our aims. It is possible that if we don't we will simply be defeated by those with more willingness to work the system. That's my view, for what it's worth.

[-] 1 points by Nordic (390) 2 years ago

I agree.

What in the world are you talking about.

Hey, what was your previous username? I have a feeling I read your comments before ;-)

[-] 1 points by Nordic (390) 2 years ago

I've never posted at this forum under any other username. I just discovered this forum a few days ago.

[-] 1 points by Nordic (390) 2 years ago

You really don't know? Are you an Obama supporter? A Dem supporter? A good "party man"?

[-] 0 points by Cephalus (146) 2 years ago

I don't support any party in American politics.

[-] 1 points by Nordic (390) 2 years ago

Then you're off to a good start.

[-] 0 points by Cephalus (146) 2 years ago

I vote for the NDP in Canada.

I try to avoid going to US. I don't feel comfortable in that country, except in Manhattan. There's alway something strange in the air.

[-] 1 points by Mooks (1985) 2 years ago

Haha what is so comfortable about Manhattan?

I do not want to call her names but google lara"s Little Tree see what comes up let me know if you enjoy

[-] 2 points by GypsyKing (9780) 2 years ago

Thank you for your restraint. I need to be reminded occasionally.

[-] 1 points by cJessgo (729) from Port Jervis, PA 2 years ago

she might take it down after tonight but it is her.Lara was one of her dog's the little tree is a small xmas tree she had for it. So cute stockings and all. Dressedthem up in little outfits and sat them at the table. Just like french nobility. Let us be kind she is a nice lady just the wrong mentality.

[-] 2 points by GypsyKing (9780) 2 years ago

I do TRY to be kind to such people. In all truth I find them to be rather sad. They could do so much real good in the world, and are just so self-focused. Paris Hilton comes to mind. What would it be like if she suddenly realized that she could do so much good in the world, instead of living the kind of life that will just leave her embittered in the end? The human story can be so sad at times, and yet there are so many others who have shown us the way. I thank God for them every day. I know that in the end love will win. Who knows, maybe it will even win over L.L.T. !
