Americans Sold Out Once Again
Well, it’s official.
The American people have been sold out, once again, by their elected representatives who are more interested in kowtowing to corporate interests than they are in doing their job—-representing the interests of the people!
I think it’s time for us, as citizens and taxpayers, to say enough is enough. Enough is enough. It’s time for us to wake up and stop rewarding these stooges with our votes.
Incidentally, take a look at the Senate votes on HR 1424 (the revamped bailout scheme bill). There are three important votes every American should be aware of.
John McCain voted ‘yes’ on the bailout scheme.
Barack Obama voted ‘yes’ on the bailout scheme.
Joe Biden voted ‘yes’ on the bailout scheme.
This trumps any supposed differences between these two candidates. It’s quite clear that they are willing to sell out the American people at the first opportunity. Neither McCain nor Obama can be trusted or relied upon. Corporate greed and domination is truly bipartisan.
And are we to reward these Washington stooges who sold us up the river with our votes? Or do we, as citizens, have more of a backbone?
I’d like to think we do.
And if we do, I think the answer is clear: vote third party. We can no longer rely on the Democrats or the Republicans to represent our interests.
In my previous post, I have provided links to all third party candidates in 2008. Study their platforms. Compare them on the issues to McCain and Obama.
Incidentally, a few weeks ago Ron Paul called a press conference, where he issued a joint statement along with Ralph Nader, Cynthia McKinney, and Charles Baldwin. Paul, along with these third party candidates, all agree on four major issues, among them, on the Federal Reserve and fiscal responsibility:
We seek a thorough investigation, evaluation and audit of the Federal Reserve System and its cozy relationships with the banking, corporate, and other financial institutions. The arbitrary power to create money and credit out of thin air behind closed doors for the benefit of commercial interests must be ended. There should be no taxpayer bailouts of corporations and no corporate subsidies. Corporations should be aggressively prosecuted for their crimes and frauds.
These third party candidates wouldn’t have sold you out to Goldman Sachs. But Obama and McCain already have. So ask yourself, who is more deserving of your vote?
