Democrats are Unwittingly Killing Themselves and Want To Take You With Them

I was going to write my own take on the continuing Democratic Party obsession with Russia, but I spent all day shoveling snow and I’m tired. Fortunately this blog entry sums up what I think pretty well.

I have no idea if the Russian government attacked the DNC. Other than the idea that Julian Assange has already spent more time under what’s essentially house arrest by the British government than he would have done in Sweden for the sexual assault I still don’t know how I feel about Wikileaks. I’m certainly no fan of Vladimir Putin.

But in the end, none of it really matters. The United States isn’t a banana republic. It’s a vast, multicultural empire with the largest economy in the world. The American ruling class has the most sophisticated system of propaganda that history has ever seen. Unless there were already deep contradictions within the American political system there’s no way even a major power like Russia would have been able to manipulate our elections.

In the end, it comes down to this. We have two major political parties, one neoliberal, the other essentially ethnonationalist, and neither represents the majority of the American people. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote. Donald Trump won the Electoral College. “None of the Above” won the American people.

Who will speak for “None of the Above?”

    I claim the US is suicidal, homicidal, psychotic, and out of emotional control. No matter which party is power, the US continues to careen downhill, presuming “might makes right” but losing “might” in its addiction to borrowing against a future it hopes to prevent by poisoning, killing, and sickening us all.

    No one wins under this scenario, even the “power brokers” like Putin and Trump. Once the empty money fraud becomes apparent to all, these guys will be leveled to human status and will have to eat the same shit they are creating for the rest of us.

        Interesting. Mob psychology has been used by the power brokers throughout history, but they had the advantage of literacy, church, state, and armies to control the mass mind. It doesn’t have to happen that way, this time, because we have an interconnected and semi-literate population. They are waking up, I believe, to the devastation wrought by the lies, and they feel it in their pocketbooks, lives, and environment. Thanks for the link.

            I agree, but we are in transition, and kids’ fascination with cell phones and social media may inspire them more than school to learn reading and writing. Then, perhaps, they will be better suited to imagine a more egalitarian society.
