democracy & demockracy

Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate for president and her running mate, Cheri Honkala, were arrested last night after sitting down in the doorway of the building where the presidential debates were going on.

Even though they're on the ballot in 85 percent of the states, the Green Candidates were frozen out of the debate by the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Demolican and Republicrat Parties -- and they don't want no competition.

Stein told the police and crowd, “The American people deserve to hear choices which are not bought and paid for by multinational corporations and Wall Street. This is why we are not hearing the critical issues in this debate.”

Well, I wanna know what's wrong with the choices that are bought and paid for. I mean, you can choose either Coke or's not like anybody's telling you which one you have to pick.

And it's the same with this election. After all, we are free to choose between Obama and Romney, which is the great thing about this country -- having that freedom to choose.

So just please go somewhere and listen to your rock or your country -- whichever one you like better -- and don't bother us any more with your complaining that the American people are so far down the rabbit hole that they've lost sight of what real choice actually is.

Dave, I'm not sure I let you know the revised thoughts I have on the problems facing us and the world. Greed, overpopulation, and lack of knowledge. Even if we solve the first and last of those, the overpopulation is sure to keep us feeling generally ever less prosperous and hopeful.

We are at the point of diminishing returns from growth. The day of decent jobs for everyone is gone. No politician of the mainstream parties wants to say such an unhopeful thing. i just checked, Jill Stein is mum about the overpopulation too, but she probably knows more about it than Romney. The problem is that like violence against others has been removed as a right over the years, so will "procreation" have to be.

Men can do their part in this area (intercourse abstinence and condoms), though that is rarely brought up. Women need equality in every possible way, but we oughtn't sacrifice our futures for political correctness.
