The Expansionist

Phony Democrats. The "Democratic" Party is actively turning its back on the people who elected them. Every day brings news of more betrayal. I have said it before and will say it again: the Democrats are a PHONY party of the opposition, and wouldn't know what to do if they actually gained power, because they are a SHILL for the Republican Party. Now we see this in action. Having gained the Presidency and convincing majorities in both houses of Congress, the Democrats are actively betraying every principle they claimed to believe in to get our votes. They have forgiven Jew Lieberman, an active enemy of both the Democratic Party and the United States, an Israeli agent who wants Americans to die to protect Israel, and is perfectly willing to have dozens more equivalents of 9/11, even the total destruction of the United States if that is what it takes to protect his country, Israel. He wants to fite the world's billion Moslems to the last American.

But Lieberman is to suffer no consequences whatsoever for his aggressive campaigning for the Republicans and opposing the Democratic nominee for President. No consequences whatsoever. Why? Because the Democrats ARE the Republicans, and have been since, at latest, the early days of the Clinton Administration. Clinton bragged of being a different kind of Democrat. Yes, he was: a Republican.
+
The Democrats have become the liberal wing of the Republican Party that was banished by the takeover of the Republican Party as such by Radical Rightwingers. The people didn't know that, however, and believed that Democrats really were the party in opposition. What opposition? They passed the Bush tax cuts and all the Bush Administration's record-breaking deficit budgets. They authorized Bush to invade Iraq, a country that never attacked us, and passed all Bush funding requests for continued operations in Iraq. They passed Bush's bankruptcy "reform" legislation that ended bankruptcy as we knew it and trapped people in debt, forcing them to pay off every cent they owed, at most altering some terms and lowering some interest rates. Joe Biden, the bastard from Delaware, voted for the abolition of Chapter 7 (liquidation) bankruptcy for individuals and substitution of Chapter 11, "workouts", in which you can't simply void debts but must pay them off. This is the same bastard from Delaware who has smiled upon his state's ruining the Nation by blazing the trail to unlimited interest rates by abolishing the state's usury law. It is because of Biden and his rotten, evil state that other states followed suit and gave us interest rates on ordinary credit cards of over 20%, even 30% a year, compounded, and "payday" loans that bear interest rates of over 300%! That is not a Democrat. That is a Republican.
+
Now Obama, the President-Elect, is filling his Cabinet with Zionists and Rightwingers, and making nice with the Republicans, promising bipartisanship. It's not bipartisanship. It is Republicanism. The Democrats are selling out, and at present it looks as tho the Democrats will leave the Bush tax cuts for the rich in place thru 2010! Obama ran on raising taxes on the rich by ending the Bush tax cuts, but now he's letting it be known that he probably won't do that. He promised to end "business as usual" in Washington and end the stranglehold of "Washington insiders" on the people's business, and stop thinking about what is best for Wall Street and start thinking about what is best for Main Street. But all his appointments to date have been Washington and Wall Street insiders!
+
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
+
Barack Obama sold us out even before he was elected. He promised to take only public financing, then 'changed his mind'. He promised to oppose the Bush domestic spying and wiretapping programs, then voted for them. Now he is filling his inner circle with Washington and Wall Street insiders. Even before he takes office, he has betrayed the people who voted for him, in favor of the people who opposed him.
+
When he betrayed his pledge on public financing, I was immediately alienated. But there were apologists who said that he did not flat-out say he would take only public financing but that he would negotiate on that issue. I was not persuaded, but let it pass. He was black (well, half-black), so maybe he needed a lot more money than McCain to overcome racism.
+
But when he voted for the "FISA improvements" that not just permitted but actually endorsed warrantless wiretapping, I knew that Barack Obama could not be trusted. I did not vote for him but for Ralph Nader, who has never betrayed us but always stuck to his principles, most of which accord with mine.
+
Will the people rise in fury at further betrayals from Obama? What if he wants to cut Social Security payments or Medicare for the poor and middle class? Will people finally wake up and see him for what he is, another puppet of the plutocratic rich? Will they finally see that the Democrat-Republican dichotomy is only apparent, not real, and that today's Democrats are really Republicans by another name? Will they finally admit that the supposed two-party system is no such thing, but two heads of the same beast, and finally turn against this conspiracy of the rich to keep all power to themselves by suppressing third parties?
+
Bipartisanship is Republicanism, period. The Democrats are frauds. Republicans and Democrats are both servants of the rich, and will continue to be so until and unless the people revolt and show their rage with massive demonstrations in the streets, massive strikes, massive protests at our unprotected borders and the ports that bring in cheap Chinese goods and symbolically take away American jobs. If that doesn't work, the people must move to the next step: invade the Capitol, invade the White House, invade the Supreme Court, and take the government away from the rich and put it back in the hands of the people, as the Founding Fathers intended. Make lots of vacancies, to be filled by new people in special elections (House) and/or gubernatorial appointments (Senate). And if Obama will not change his ways, force him not just to flee on a helicopter and try to find an "undisclosed location" that no one will betray ("betray"; sound familiar, Mr. Obama?), but to resign and let the law of succession (as it stands after Congress has lots of new faces) give us a new President from among the few real Democrats who remain in Congress. How about President Barney Frank or President Ted Kennedy? President Kennedy. Has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?
+
If a new, Real Democrat as President and a Congress dominated by Real Democrats still won't behave like Democrats, then the people must turn to the third parties, present and future, to smash the two-party system that has given us nothing but the same old crap year after year, and come up with real solutions from fresh sources and bolder minds. Universal, single-payer healthcare, none of this half-assed sh*t that this country does all the time. No 35 different prescription plans that old people have to try to figure out. One plan. Full coverage, no deductibles, all paid for by progressive taxation that makes the rich pay dearly for the rich life they live at our expense. So the rich might be able to afford only 6 houses each rather than 7? They'll survive, which is more than can be said for hundreds of thousands of Americans who have literally died for lack of healthcare because Democrats and Republicans are hard-hearted slime who don't care about the uninsured because they've got the best health insurance plan in the country.
+
The two-party system has given us wars abroad, social and economic inequality at home, vast criminality, crumbling infrastructure, mass death from illness, accident, and crime that universal healthcare could prevent, scores of millions of people buried in inescapable, life-crushing debt, and on and on. Third parties could not possibly do worse.
+
My own third party, the Expansionist Party of the United States, would enlarge our national territory by extending statehood to Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgins Islands (together, in one state), Canada, Mexico, the Philippines, Britain, Australia, New Zealand, and multitudinous other compatible societies, and give us thereby much greater resources, both natural and human, with which to solve not just our own problems but the world's problems, including overpopulation. But you never hear Democrats or Republicans talking about that. No, we're just supposed to make do with our inadequate territory and resources, and let the world's problems overwhelm us. Every 4 years, the world's population grows by much more than the total population of the United States. There's no way we can keep on top of that. Each year we become a smaller and smaller percentage of the world's population, and that immense population is scrambling to survive. More people chase after little more in the way of resources, driving up prices on things like oil and all its products, which threatens to put those not just eternally beyond the reach of most of the poor around the world, but even beyond our own reach. Our own standard of living is falling, as the whole world is in a race to the bottom.
+
The rich are delited, because the more miserable other people are, the happier the rich are. They can't feel good about all they have unless others have nothing. They're on a toboggan riding on top of the avalanche. For them, it's an exhilarating ride. They never think about what happens when we hit bottom and the people reach up, drag the rich from their tobaggan, and kill them by torture, gleefully laffing and singing as they slash them with white-hot razor blades (so they suffer agony with each slice but don't bleed to death) or roast them upside down over a pit of fire. Their bodyguards will turn on them, and no amount of money will save them from their just rewards. All the old goodies of torture and execution will pop up again, from the rack and iron maiden to flaying (slicing the skin off in strips), to the Chinese torture of a thousand cuts. And new tortures with new forces, like electricity, radiation, and ebola, will come to the fore. The paintings of hell by Michelangelo and Hieronymus Bosch will come to life. Sadly, the glee of the poor during those few weeks of vengeance won't really make up for all the decades of privation and suffering, all the loved ones they had to watch die because the rich killed them by withholding medical procedures that could have saved them, but it sure will feel good finally to have fought back and won.
+
The rich do not believe for an instant that the poor can fite back and win. They believe that no amount of privation, no level of mass unemployment, will produce violent revolution that actually kills them by torture. No privileged class has ever thought revolution could really happen to them. The French nobility and aristocracy didn't believe it until they were being rolled up in horsecarts to the guillotine. The Russian royal family didn't believe it until they were forced down into the basement and shot. What is now will always be. Sure it will.
+
What will it take to turn Americans into a roaring, uncontrollable mob taking vengeance on the rich who are not just ruining their lives but actually killing thousands and thousands a year by withholding medical treatment they desperately need? Do smaller mobs have to shut down entertainment television and radio first? intimidate pro sports teams to stay off the field? shut down entertainment websites and flood the Internet only with news showing how bad things really are? Or will each family wake up only when it is forced out onto the streets because the bank has foreclosed, or they have to wait for hours, in the snow, on a soup line?
+
Has the present stock-market panic shaken the rich out of their own complacency, so they finally realize that they can't keep doing what they've been doing to us because it hurts them too? Will Obama realize that he can't keep selling us out without turning everyone against him? Will millions of indignant emails to Congress shake Congress awake? Or will it all just collapse into chaos, in which the people crushed by the rich finally realize that it is the rich who have all the money, and the rich who caused all this trouble, and the rich who must pay? It's not looking good. For anyone.
